Baby shower present

Jason's mother was throwing a baby shower for his cousin who is stationed out in CA but was home for a few weeks. I knew she had to get everything home from the shower so I decided to do something small and easy for travel. So here is another ric-rac blanket and paci clip. I also added a little book to the gift, but that was store bought:) I just loved the colors of the blanket....i see many many more of these in my future:)

Weekend Wrap-Up

okay so maybe my list was a little ambitious. But it was a hope list after all :) I did get 2 out of 3 bathrooms cleaned, made a fun hair bow, attended 2 birthday parties and 1 baby shower, made 72 cupcakes and delivered them safely, and well managed to get a little sleep and some play time! So the taxes will have to wait....your probably thinking no big deal right....haha they are last years, yes you read right i still haven't done mine from last year. opps you know a sign of adhd is procrastion...um just a random thought. will post pics of the parties later:)

Khloe's Bib

i fell in love with this material from walmart in Nags Head. I simply made a bib pattern from one of Khloe's larger bibs, which i like cause it keeps her clothes clean:). This bib has a pocket on the front to catch falling food. The back is hot pink terry cloth. I have a few more bibs in the making. I love the fact it isn't baby pink:)

Can't wait to make a few more:) Khloe did not like us taking the grass out of her hand that she was trying to eat..notice the crying pic:) Oh yeah and a pic of mason:)

Khloe's Bird Blanket

And here it is, bird blanket or throw. I found this birdie material and I loved it just wasn't sure what to do with it so I stuffed it away. That was until I found a tutorial at www.sewmuchado.blogspot.com (ric-rac-receiving blanket) Her blanket was also out of a bird material. When I stumbled across the site my material immediately came to mind. The hardest part of making this blanket....getting it square! So glad a married a very handy man:) As you can see both kids loved it (mason insisted on sleeping with it the night i finished it). So yes of course I am making Mason one and another for a baby shower this weekend. So thankful Jason was with me to help Mason pick out his material...he wanted one with flames and eight balls all over it but luckily Jason talked him out of it. Thank goodness!!! What a quick and easy project:)

To come.....

just a sneak peak at some projects to come....

Drum Roll Please.....

So here is the new craft room, not completely finished but almost there!! I just love it! Its so much brighter. Also my desk use to be half the width and along the wall...who wants to stare at a wall while they work:0 So now it shoots out into the middle of the room and i doubled the width of the desk. Ohhhhh how I just love it, did i already say that???

love the tree decal with the birds I made for it. i will be adding something to each side...um....just not sure what yet.

Hurrican Earl and Hatteras

Our yearly family vacation started off bitter sweet not having my dad around, then due to Earl we had to back up and leave after only being in Hatteras for 2 1/2 days. Someone said that is your dad saying how dare you vacation without me, but i don't believe that for one second. My dad would have wanted us there. He would have wanted us all laughing and having a great time. He would have loved the beach fires and country music Mike had every night, the cannon balls in the hot tub after a few to many drinks, and Captain Mike telling Andy Fox the Outer Banks was his vessel and he was gonna ride it out. It was a short 2 and 1/2 days but boy did we make a lot of new memories during that time. It was the first family vacation without my dad and another new beginning to our new normal. Below are a few pics from our vacation.

Khloe Bean

hating the fact my pics are blurry. Not sure what is going on? Anyways just a few updated shots of Khloe and one of Mason. Mason will not get in front of the camera:( Khloe just got her third tooth, its a top fang tooth...hopefully those front middle two come in soon. She is almost crawling!! She gets up on her knees then buries her face in the carpet. She is also loving some Nilla wafers.
