A few things Im dying to make

How easy to add a few jeweled buttons to the long gloves I bought at the dollar store
A perfectly girly holder for all my earrings
Thanks to Anthropologie for this beauty that I will soon copy, yea right would I pay close to $300 for a new duvet cover for our bed. I know I recently re-did our bedding but its a little to pink and girly for Kreg so I thought this is still pretty yet neutral and will look great paired with some ruffle pillows.

Advent


I made this advent out of a pizza pan, match boxes (both from the dollar store),magnets and scrapbook paper. The kids can pull the box off on the day and open a suprise!

Ironing board cover

My old cover was yucky from being in the garage so I did a quick re-do. Now its Clean!!

Before:


Luck for you CC wanted to say "cheese" meaning take pics of me, mom!

Baby Sling and Apron


I made Cecily a sling for her baby dolls, She took it of right after I snapped the pic but I know come next spring when I'm wearing baby in a sling she will want to copy me.

I made this apron out of a dish towel. So easy and big enough to grow with.The BIG bed!! Just needs a bed skirt and quilt from Gram! CC loves being so BIG!

Dollar Store Christmas Decor

paid $6 for all of this. they're sitting on the back

Bed Rail

We are getting CC's BIG bed all set up this week and so I got a bed rail from a second hand store, it was white but a bit dingy and not at all attractive so to make it pretty like the rest of the bed, (will be once we get the quilt from Gram) I took a big piece of lace and covered it! It took maybe 10 min from start to finish and it looks so much better!!

Thanks to my Relief Society for having a craft night and even more thanks to the lady that hosted it and her awesome Vinyl Lettering skills. I Made this and it looks great over my Fireplace!


I also made a dress for Cecily out of one of her Dad's old shirts but she wore it and got it dirty before I could get a good picture of it. So in a week or sow when its clean again I will post it!

Been Busy

Basically the morning sickness has gotten the best of me so there hasn't been much crafting lately. Since I am 12 weeks along now Im hoping I start feeling better and can get back to making pretty things and not just a pretty baby due in may!!

Baby legs, Blankets, Car seat tent, Gloves

I've been sewing a ton...
I made these from this.

I took Reagan's receiving blankets that are too small for her to use now, cut them up and sewed them together, added a back piece to make a bigger blanket. I also sewed a couple other blankets for gifts. I found this tutorial to make a car seat tent and I had to try it. I made this one out of flannel for winter. I altered her measurements a little to fit our seat but it was pretty close.I saw this online and decided to give it a try with some socks I found at Honk's dollar store. It was pretty easy - don't know when I'll actually wear them but I think they're cute.

Baby Leg Warmers




I whipped out a pair of these the other day from this tutorial...I don't have a serger so I won't be washing them b/c I think they will disintegrate. It was super easy though.

groceries? i'll deliver

I made this fake food for CC's new kitchen.

Funny, how they are mostly treats! Who would've thought?

fabric flowers

I saw these on wise craft. they were so easy!

Don't get rid of fabric scraps, you can make these!

easy and take maybe ten minutes. Use as a pin on

a jacket or top, in hair, on a purse, or anywhere!

I put the yellow floral on the back.

Superhero Birthday Party






I gave my son a Superhero Academy birthday party. I got the idea from here. We played a few games: Vaporize Villains (silly string helium balloons with villains pictures taped to them), climb buildings and fly down (up and down a slide), diffuse bombs (pop black balloons), Magnificent Marksmen (throwing a ball at a bulls eye), Rapid Rescue (they saved toy soldiers from the sand box), and Mighty Muscles (the photo op). I made each of the kids a cape with their initial on the back and mask and gave them a gift bag with their training manual inside....when they completed a game we put a sticker on the page. It was a lot of fun! I also made cup labels that were shaped like the "pow" on the invite with each kids name on it.

Cecily's quilt top


here is the quilt top. it's at the quilters as we speak,

and i'll show it again when it's completed.
