Happy Halloween! A little late :(

When one child asks to be a washing machine for Halloween and the other wants to be an owl, you don't have much choice but to make the costumes.  Here's what I came up with. 

He is smiling on the inside, trust me.

Christmas Crafting

Yep, I'm posting something again.  Woo-hoo! Let's not get carried away now!

Here's a round up of some stuff I've done so far for Christmas.  This is mostly for me b/c I want to make myself a cute little visual board on pinterest of all my projects, but feel free to ask about anything if you want to make your own.

 Pillow covers using felt ornaments from the Dollar Tree + Painter's drop cloth = Christmas WIN!  I love these.

 Cute little ornaments with the kids' Christmas wish lists.  They did the dictating, I did the writing.  Copied from here:

 A felt wrapped wreath. Pinterest inspired from here:
Her's looks better, but whatevs.
My advent calender.  You can find these all over the internet, and mine was inspired by at least half a dozen.

A Summer Dress: Matryoshka Style

It may only be Febuary, but it's never to early to start thinking Summer in Texas.  I made Evie this dress over the weekend after eyeing this tutorial, Apron Top, for a while now.  I wanted a dress for my girl and an open back, so I made some adjustments to the original design to suite my needs.  I'm really happy with how it turned out.  So incredibly cute and nice for those hot summer days ahead, and this fabric is probably my most favorite ever.

I know my photography skills are just amazing, right?  Please forgive the poor lighting. I can only get her to sit still for a picture if I bribe her with "Word World," thus the blank stare on her face.

Aaaand, I'm back.

After a long, long hiatus, I'm back to post some new things the kids and I have been working on.

First off: Valentine's Day gifts.

For V day, I made my sweetness this quick and easy heart lovie.  I loved the lace around the heart. Reminds me so much of old-fashioned valentines.

And my big boy got this felt play mat.  I made my mat using this great tutorial: Our Journey: Travel Felt Play Mat and then decided to make my own style of play characters. 

 Ian says his best friend is the alien from Toy Story.  He's even named "Friend," so I had to have those characters.  I searched for farm and Toy Story imagines online and then printed them on to Print 'n Press Transfer Sheets, ironed them on to white felt, and there you have it.


As it turns out, Evan is obsessed with the farm animals, and Ian has been sleeping with her new lovey.
