ornaments & scotus show

 christmas is right around the corner.  in fact i brought a real tree home last night to put up on thursday since i am holiday function free til supper.  if you are a loyal reader or know me, you know that i make ornaments for my siblings, nephews, nieces, and kids each year.  sometimes i have extras. these are recent years that i have extras of.  i'll have them at my next two shows.  the glass ball has let it snow on velum (i also have on transparency paper, but that didnt photograph very well) with snow flakes on the outside for $3.  santa lets you know how many days are left with the extra numbers n his bag for $6.
 some kids need to be extra good this time of year to make up for all the fun things they have done over the course of the year, this post card (customizable on the reverse with santas address & childs) lets them explain, $3.

i also wanted to let everyone know about my next show coming up this sunday.  i have finally made it into the scotus craft show on december 1 at scotus high school 1554 18th ave, columbus, ne from 9 am til 4 pm.  
serendipity cloths will also be there with me.  she
has lots of cute christmas/holiday skirts for your little girl.

sheets, sheets, sheets






 so i had a custom order for pack & play sheets this summer.  but they werent just any sheets.  she wanted them lined with pul (that cool water resistant cloth diaper cover fabric) with flannel on the top.  best part was she had a sheet (it was just cotton) that she liked so i didnt have to come up with a pattern on my own.  they were pretty easy to do and can really be made out of anything.  if you would want the pul lined those are $30, flannel/fleece or cotton are $20.

then i have always had a hard time finding crib sheets that dont shrink after a few washes.  nothing is more annoying than trying to change crib sheets that are SUPER tight when you are 9 months pregnant.  so i decided to make my own.  these are on elia's bed.  i was also thinking of making a water resistant pad with pul & a few layers of flannel as those always seem to shrink on me too.

busy, busy

wow, thanks to everyone who stopped out at the millard west show.  nicole everingham was the winner of the $25 gift certificate.  after such a great show i was kinda worried about having time & fabric to restock my supply for my show this weekend.  but lucky for me i had some at home and had time for a quick trip to hobby lobby after the show in omaha (bit better selection than norfolk's) but that also meant that i had to work my butt off to get lots of sewing done.  happy to say that i got everything done that i wanted to, including a custom order for a car seat cover. 

this is a pic of the boy fish that i had to make (i was out & had requests for some) so if you wanted these, please email or fb me & i'll get some shipped out to you.

oh i did say that i had a show this weekend right???  its my 1st time in kearney, ne at the holiday splendor craft/trade show.  runs from 9 am til 4 pm at the buffalo county fairgrounds 3807 ave n, kearney, ne.  hope to see everyone out there!

infinity nursing scarves & next show


i know lots of people are in to scarves.  i am not.  for some reason i dont like stuff up around my neck. but my sister in law pointed these out to me and i thought they would be a good addition to my stock.  infinity nursing scarves.  they are the same as regular, just a bit wider & longer, to accomadate the bulk & length of baby.  best part is, i can make a regular scarf and a nursing one out of the same fabric!  contact me if this is something you would like.  nursing scarves are $20 and the regular scarves are $15.
also wanted to let everyone know about my next show coming up.  millard west again!!! one of my favorites.  this year it is later than normal, not sure why but they had to change the date.  so stop out on november 2 from 9 am til 4 pm to check out the hall and 2 gyms full of crafters!  and just incase you need to be reminded of the address it on 176th & q in omaha.  i'm going to do a gift certificate drawing for all those who stop by & register.
also check back as i'll be doing some posts of projects i did this summer.  just to catch up.

new bathroom decor




so i know i have been really bad lately on this.  its just the normal excuses busy summer, school stuff. but i was reminded that i needed to update this so here is something we have done lately...i like pintrest (well maybe love) and saw a cute idea on there and ran with it to make it my own.  the kids all love to paint so i got them paint & gave them the low down-paint what you want and when its dry we'll put your hand prints on there, cause mom wants to hang these in the bathroom.  they had fun (as you can see) and i love how they are all different.
now if you look close there is one without a hand print. and there is a reason for it....aaron & i are expecting the end of march!!!  so i painted that one and when the baby arrives, i'll get monkey's print on there.

late christmas stuff





i know this is way late, but with everyone being sick (more then once with everything that is going around) and christmas & the wedding, i finally remembered & had time to post these.  the kids had fun gluing & then painting the 'houses'.  they didnt like the waiting for the glue to dry though.
