Not Friday, but my craft post

It would be so much easier if the app had a way to schedule posts ahead of time, but since it doesn't and I did something crafty today, you get a craft post today. 

Our church has a silent auction and coffee house each year to raise money for various things, usually youth related. I had this table runner almost made for about four or five years.  I've never really liked it. The back is just some squares pieced together. 


So, I threw in some binding and still didn't like it that much... It needed something to go along with it. My sister-in-law makes little felt ornaments and sells them on etsy (which is another failing of the app that I can't add a link). I thought I would make a little stuffed ornament to go along with it. 


I was inspired by the fact that I woke up this morning and there was snow on the ground, in April. What?!? It was a pretty surprise, but what?!? It was 65 degrees yesterday. 


And here is the back modeled by Martin. He really wanted to help out. 

Here is the web address for my sister-in-law's shop(if you look under reviews you will see examples of her Christmas ornaments. She is much more creative than I am. Jared's whole family is a bunch of creative geniuses. That is why he wraps the Christmas presents in our house. I'd just use newspaper):

You can add a link and then highlight it and make it say whatever you want:-) I do it all of the time. If you don't know how to do something, just google it:-)

But does that work in the app? I know how to do it on a computer. it is simple. But I've never been able to find it on the app. Also, i don't find Google helpful on their mobile app. I get much better results when I use a computer. Everything is easier on a bigger screen. :) But since we don't have a computer or Internet at our house, I am stuck blogging on my phone.
