Introducing.....The Backseat Buddy !!!

I have a new item in my shop this week. It is my own design (out of necessity!). It is a rectangular bag that ties onto to headrest of your seat. It is readily open and available for kids books, toys and such. I have one for each of my kids. Alyssa's is filled with her books and magnetic toys, and Logan's holds his diapers and wipes. (Yeah, he's not much on playing with toys in the car.) It can be easily untied and thrown in the laundry if it gets messy. So come check it out!
Clicking on the pic takes you straight to the listing. Others are already listed in my shop, and more prints are available.

Our Halloween Pics

Sometimes I honestly think it's easier to go pick up that generic costume at Wal-Mart than to put the time and effort into MAKING the outfit. Whew! So glad Halloween only comes once a year! I made 2 outfits this year. My daughter's Dora Snow Princess dress (& accessories) and my nephew's fireman outfit. Both turned out "O.K." but it was def a learning experience! LOL

Sunday, October 19, 2008 we come!

Yeah, OK, my kids are messy eaters. So immediately after dinner, they go straight to the bathtub. Logan (19 mos) got done eating first so I got him out of his highchair and sent him to the bathroom. He walked in there and lifted the toilet seat. Then he tried to get up there by himself, but couldn't. I thought he was just getting up there to be silly (like normal) but I went ahead and helped him out. Within 5 seconds he was peeing in the toilet! Yeah!! So proud!

I finally got her dress finished

I totally forgot I even had a pattern for this dress until Alyssa found it the other night. So I finally got it done today. Too bad it's been cloudy and storming all day, but here are the first pictures of it. I will definitely be making more of these, since they work so well year around. Cute to wear alone, and still cute with a shirt underneath it!

So I have a VERY determined 3 year old!

I made the mistake 3 years ago to put my daughter in my bed to sleep. (I don't care what anyone says....MISTAKE! LOL) So it has taken me this long to finally get her out. Well, I had her out once, and her daddy got her back in our bed. He liked having her there. But it's not him getting his butt kicked all night by the mini tosser-n-turner! Anyway, so as of Friday, it's back to my way. So every single night has been a struggle. Before she finally gives in and falls asleep. Well tonight, she knew her daddy was coming home and she was pretty determined she was not going to sleep in her bed. No matter what. End of story. Sure enough...she won. She may be asleep in her room, but NOT in her bed!

My Custom Order This Week

So I had a custom order for a child's cupcake half apron, but I had no cupcake fabric. No fabric store up to 2 hours away had cupcake fabric. And she needed it in a hurry. So my little creative bug started whispering....I did a terrycloth cupcake applique! Wow, a little harder than expected, but I learned a lot from it. And it turned out great!!! Cupcake even has colored sprinkles! Now I am waiting on fabric to come in so I can start the next custom order with another cupcake. Here are some pics of the first one. I know they aren't that great, but it stormed bad all day so the pics aren't as bright as I had hoped. (First pic also shows the matching heat therapy bag I made with it.)

I think it's Etsy's fault! (Maybe)

So last night I finally got to work on listing some things in my Etsy, since Logan goes to bed at 8 and Alyssa went to go stay at her Mumzie's house. Unfortunately, I thought a couple of drinks and sewing would mix well. It didn't. In 6 hours time, I got half a dress, one child's apron, and a fleece hat for my neice completed. So due to my lack of sleep last night, I have a monster headache today. =( Somehow, I am actually getting more done today with one kid awake and running around like a little indian, than I did last night all by myself in a quiet house. Hmm....I think I really need to get off of here and finish this since our Cafemom Etsy Moms sale started today!
