Talent trading!

This is the greatest idea EVER!

My girlfriend, who is a photographer, approached me about talent trading.
She will take photos of my kids and I'm making some stuff for her little guy.
I love this idea and I'm soooo excited about it.
It was soo fun to make these items for him.



I wish I could post his picture for you all to drool over- but I'll have to check with his momma first. He is SOOOOO cute!
Here is her website


Here's what I made him:

a hooded towel using this baseball applique from sewforum


a Thanksgiving t-shirt using this applique from sewing for sarah



and a Christmas shirt using this Rudolph applique from Tigerlilly Hill
(Ella wants to keep this one....)



I'm going home tomorrow... so I don't know how much I'll be posting. I'm usually pretty busy when I go back to Texas!
Happy Halloween, everyone!

...and try talent trading with a friend. What a great idea.
My sister in law, Liz, and I do this- I make stuff for her girls and she makes me cookies and sends me Dark Chocolate Hershey's syrup in the mail. What a deal.
Thanks Chelsi and Liz!

Isn't it awesome to have a talent to offer as a trade?? Our last two sets of family portraits were done that way!
