DT Submission – Charlene Driggs

Thrifty Gift Set for Baby

It's time, it's time!  Time for the finalists in the May Arts Design Team search to begin posting their projects.  The current DT are vying for their spots as well so be sure to check out all the projects in the coming week.

Springtime and babies just seem to go together.   I thought a  project for a baby boy might be fun for a change.  I wanted my gift to be pretty and practical so the new mom would be able to use it for awhile.
