Procrastination nation....

This post is long overdue, for which I extend my deepest apologies! Therefore, it probably will be long and chock-full of pictures and a video. Well to start here are pictures of a couple of my projects. This first one is a skirt I made that I am totally in love with and would wear everyday if I could!

It is made from a brown and white polka dot cotton with lace edge and an old tshirt I cut up for the waist band. It was pretty quick and simple I just wish it didn't take so much fabric. But it is pretty long and full. This next one is a picture of the placemats and coasters I made. They are all the same just reversible so I turned some over so you could see both sides. That thing in the corner is a coffee sleeve. It is lined with fabric my mom bought at Fabricland when she worked there at 16! Disney, the pinkish fabric is the one I was telling you about that is my favorite!

And this is the black, yellow and red version of it. I bought all Jo-ann's had. But I don't know what to do with it yet!

This is a picture of my new craft area. It is still a work in progress, but I really like it. I have a lot more table area. Although, about a third of my fabric is there on the table!

Today I went to Walmart while Mark watched Jack. When I came home this is how I found Jack. I thought it was so cute! (Although, now he is being... not so cute!)

You'll notice in the previous picture my new glorious headboard. Yes, this is in fact the famous $3.99 headboard in all her beauty. I found this headboard at Goodwill and Disney bought it for her guest room. But then Mark re-did our room for Valentines Day and asked Disney if we could have it for our room. She graciously obliged! I am so thrilled! It is so beautiful. Now we just need to finish our canopy and get new bedding. (Eeep!) Here is a slightly better picture of the headboard. I couldn't get a great one since Jack was asleep.

Lately, I've been trying to wear Jack in the Moby more. He seems to like it, it is just a pain to get on. And I seem to have to take it off so frequently. Here is a picture of Jack in the Moby.

He is a big boy now so he can sit forward-facing. And he can also kick his socks off!

Jack's new favorite thing to do is eat faces. (I think it is a teething thing) He has done this to both grandmas and now me too. I caught him doing it (although not as viciously) on video today.


How sweet! =] Well now that everyone is updated, I should try to get some housework and then some sewing done. 


  1. AAAAH!! I don't know what to comment on first!
    1)That video of Jack is THE BEST!! What a stinkin' cutie! I want him to eat my face! By the way, I counted, and you kissed him something like 15 times during that little video. Isn't it so hard to stop kissing them?? It doesn't get any easier, either.
    2) That skirt is pretty much the best thing I've ever seen. I want it. A lot. Now.
    3) what was that lovely little bit in the corner of the skirt picture? It looks like a gorgeous bed set. Exactly the type of gorgeous bed set I've been looking for to go on our white canopy bed. Where did it come from??
    4) That headboard is a lot prettier than I remember it being....what was I thinking?!?! I don't like you guys THAT much... :o)
    5) That black and red fabric is amazing!! It makes me want to make a skirt or a picnic blanket out of it.

  2. What a cute video clip! Babies are so sweet! (most of the time.)

    Oh my goodness! You are so crafty! I love the skirt. And the placemats.

    I'm going to have to keep my eyes open at the Goodwill! I want a headboard like that!

  3. Thanks! I really like when he does that.

    And I just LOVE that does Mark. I wish there were more at Goodwill for the same price. =]
