I have a new favorite Philadelphian, and her name is Milly Belle! Here she is just 1 day old, snuggling with her dad. She’s an amazing little girl, and she has two wonderful parents! Her mom is one of my closest friends, and former Camp Canadensis counselor, Ali Margulies Garber. While Ali was pregnant this summer, she came up for a 4th of July visit at camp, so Milly’s already sorta been to Canadensis, and has even enjoyed some cornman!!
All of them are doing great, and this new family of three have a lot of love coming their way! One of the ways I show my love is through crafting, check out some of the crafties made specially for Milly!Her dad has a favorite sweatshirt (doesn’t everyone?? I hope your favorite sweatshirt is a Canadensis one!), you can see a little bit of it in the picture above. It’s from a family owned grocery store in Margate, NJ (in case the name sounds familiar). Since he often wears the sweatshirt when relaxing, I wanted Milly to have her own version to wear on lazy Sundays…
I picked up a plain red onesie, and made a stencil with adhesive backed paper. I used non-toxic fabric paint, and voila…check out the finished product!They’ve requested larger sizes for Milly as she grows, and I’m excited to make more for this adorable girl!!
This is a crocheted blanket with her initials – for those of you who took the crochet elective at camp, it started off as a “granny square”, and I just kept making it bigger and bigger!
I can’t wait until the day Milly and I can break out the coloring books and markers, and start crafting together!
