a little gift and an apron

With Christmas coming, I wanted to at least make a gift... I did for my sister-in-law. But I needed to do something else. So I made this tutu for my girlie. I also got her the Tinkerbell movie to go with it. It was so stinking easy! I love it. Just for fun I thought about posting the pic of DH wearing it around his neck, but decided better. Maybe one day if he teases me too much.... I have to have some retaliation! Enjoy!

Also, here is the apron I made earlier in the month in less than 24 hours from purchase of fabric to completed product! Go me! Ü

I finished the calendar last night. I am super excited about it. I can't wait to see it in real life. For your enjoyment.... I really do have the cutest kids!

So, I had a friend over the other evening and she said that she really wanted to do calendars as gifts to the grandmas this year. I told her we could do it, so we got this template from Janet. Of course, when we bought it on Friday it was $10 and now it is $5.... Hurry over before the sale is over. I have been working on it since, and I have been having so much fun! Here is some of what I have done. Enjoy!


I can't decide what one for January I like better, darker or lighter? What do you think?

I love, love, love the smell of yummy, fattening things... Especially cookies! (and German chocolate cake!) So, yesterday morning while my girlie was at school, I baked. And they are yummy. Everyone thinks so.

And this is what little guy did while I baked. Sat in a box and watched "My Friends Tigger and Pooh"

finally fixing it

So, as some of you may have seen my misspelling in my blog address, I have finally figured out how to fix it. YAY! I am going to be adding the other "p" in the address. I just want you to have a heads up so you can be prepared to fix the link in your blogs and favorites folders. And those of you who do bloglines will be able to fix your feeds. The new address will be scrappingirlsplace.blogspot.com

So, I have been sewing up a storm! Well, actually my crafty friend has been sewing up a storm with only minimal questions. We each have 2 munchkins, although one of hers is a pre-teen. Don't kill me Crafty Friend. I think I need a new name for her. I like how my old YW leader is islandmom and I need one for this friend. I digress.

So, with 3 girls and 1 boy running about. I finished a gift for my wonderful sister-in-law. Helped my Crafty Friend make a couple of aprons, made invites for a few things (YW in excellence, PTA bingo), went to Grandpa's house for turkey day, set up Christmas and took millions of photos. Then, Tuesday night I had the crazy idea to make an apron for my cousin as a birthday/hostess gift. Off to the fabric store yesterday morning with Crafty Friend. We get into so much trouble there. Got the fabric, washed it (very important!), cut out the pattern, worked like a little bee worker. Then, this afternoon it was done! I made the whole thing in 24 hours! WOW! I need pictures. Crafty Friend took them and I need her to email them to me. I will put it up when I get them.

Oh, and big pat on the back to Craft Friend, she has completed the 4 aprons that she needed to have done in less than 2 weeks! AMAZING!

And another round of applause for her, she hasn't ever sewn before and she is a PRO! I like to think she owes it all to me, but no, not at all. She is a great seamstress! I did teach her a few of my tricks, so I can say I helped her.

This is Crafty Friend and I.... Just thought you would like a photo of who I am talking about!
