When Friday evening rolls around, I breathe a sigh of relief that the work week is over and I will actually have some time to relax over the weekend ...
Unfortunately, although they seem rather unassuming as they approach, that hasn't been the case for a couple of weekends now!
This weekend, part of the "busy-ness" included a baby shower for one of my childhood friends.
And what is a baby shower without a diaper animal?
Since the "theme" of her shower was giraffes, I set out to make one as part of her gift.
Using the following tutorial as a basic guide (and with the addition of some pipe cleaners within the legs to hold them together, some wooden popsicle sticks to support the neck, and different embellishments), I ended up with something pretty cute.
And while it wasn't as relaxing as I had hoped, it turned out to be a nice weekend afterall!
