something on the side

So, I have finished 2 of the 3 aprons I am making. YAY! I am so excited for them. I will post pictures later.... I made this -
altered can for dd's teacher. It is a can (think soup, fruit) that has a pop top lid, I took my pampered chef can opener and opened it at the bottom so the pop top is still intact. Used whatever soup was in the can.... Washed the can out. Decorated the outside. Stuffed it with candy. Super glued bottom on. Tied ribbons on the pop top. Off to pick DD up from school! Enjoy!

2 weeks

So, I have been working on these aprons for two weeks. Life gets in the way sometimes. I have one almost finished, just the halter straps. The other one is waiting to be sewn together and the halter straps done. Then, I have another that is cut out and ready to be made. I will have some photos up soon. Just not of the one for my dear sister in law. She knows she is getting one for Christmas, she just doesn't know what it will look like. Who am I to spoil that suprise?

if only

If only there were more hours in my day. I have so many things to scrapbook, but I have committed to making an apron for my coffee group. Plus I am doing a couple of other sewing things and they take up table space. In order to get dinner back on the table for us I am having to give my scrapbooking time to sewing. Soon, very soon I will be back at it! But, here is a page a did a few days ago. Enjoy!

way back

So, I am playing catch up with the last 6 or 7 years of life. What happens to time? Oh wait, time passed in the form of the two cutest kids ever! But, now with this wonderful thing of digi scrapping I can scrapbook for 3 or 4 minutes and leave it on the computer. Don't have to worry about cutting paper, cleaning up before 2 sets of messy hands can touch it, running out of anything! I love it.I am so grateful to islandmom for introducing me to templates, it really does make the scrapbooking go faster!

So, this is from when dd was about 5 months old. Her first Christmas. WOW, time has flown. I still remember when she was this little. The little guy with her is 4 months younger and weighs the same as her!

I am now finished with ds' baby book. Each of my kids get a scrapbook with thier first year, then it is family albums. I am so glad to be done with his book. It has 39 pages, off to Costco I go! I can't wait to have them. He will enjoy looking at them. Now on to getting caught up for the rest of our lives!!!! Here is the last picture from his album. Enjoy!

New Do

Well, it is about time I updated the site. Gave it a little face lift if you will. If you are wondering where I got the super cute scrapping stuff, it is Harvest Spice by shabbyprincess. The super cute font is called Doodle Dance by Fontologie. I thought about doing a halloween theme, but then thought better of it. I would probably forget to change it at the end of the month and then it would be a big problem. If I didn't have so many things going on, I would be better about it, but thus is the life of a wife and mommy. Enjoy!
