Day 21: New Blog on the block you've GOTTA check out!

Somehow E and I found Pink Christmas. Mark your want to play next year. Anyway, in my wonderful pink envelope I received many, many goodies from sponsors, but one caught my eye....a simple brown wax bag with a list of ideas for using it (sorry no pic...I'm lazy today.) So, while my boys watch their Phillies in the first game of the World Series I thought I'd grab my laptop, sit with them, and go blog hour later I've only gotten to was so good I had to email a friend, read every post, and now write a post of my own about go already :D All you lurkers...come back and tell me if you loved it as much as I did.

Day 19: Aprons that make me happy

This first apron was inspired by the main fabric...which was a place mat. I love Tuesday Morning. I made it into a craft apron because I loved it's weight and structure. It will be great for holding tools, supplies etc.

This apron was inspired by a remnant fabric and an old jean skirt that I loved but is now too big to wear. My sister shared the pattern with me. I even made the bias tape out of the skirt. It makes me happy to put it on.

Day15: Pattern games

One of my generous eco-contributors gave us these foam shapes. Since I don't have little ones at home I hadn't figured out a use yet. When my fabulous sister Sarah saw them (she has little ones) she immediately thought of making these fun games for her kids.

As usual I'm behind the curve, but we were given some fun fabric and I thought aprons would be very fun. So I made this one's I get extra points for that?

Then I saw a blog that had craft aprons...ohhhh I love pockets, so using bits of two different patterns I made two is a picture of one of them. I made my cute son model...Iknow you can't see the pockets, but trust me they're there...he's just toooooo skinny :D

Day 8: Not your grama's clipboard with BONUS gift idea

This is Shelice speaking. Up until now Ellie's done all the posts etc but since she leaves for college in two days you're going to be hearing less from her and more from me... at least until she gets settled. Don't worry though, we've got a few "days" saved up. If you see something you like be sure and leave a comment...we need the love!She made these, added a few of our card...pre-addressed, and a pen and gave them to some of her favorite people as going away gift (just a little self-serving, but who doesn't like to get mail :D) I'm still waiting for mine.

ps If you like the pens be sure to check back....I'd say in less than 24 hrs...

Day 6: Fleece fringe blanket

So I'm off to Utah in 9 days for college! My dorm colors are brown and pink, and I wanted a blanket to match. Shelice and I went to Hancock fabrics for their sale the other day. They had their fleece 30% off so I had to get the pink and brown.
I had to wash it and then get it all lined up. When you have a big blanket you have to sew the center together so that it doesn't separate. I was just going to do a square but Shelice said I should sew one of the girls that I draw a lot, they were all over my notes in high school. I drew it on there in pencil and Shelice did all the hard work. I just cut and tied!

Day 3: Placemat Purses

I love place mats! Well, let me rephrase that, I love cute ones! I don't like to eat on the cute ones cause then you could spill on the them, possibly staining them. And then you would have to remember not to use the side you stained, assuming that it didn't soak through and stain both sides, and that is just too much work. So I am a little wacky but give me a break!
I love this one, it's just one place mat and the straps are long enough to put over your shoulder. I made one just like this for a friend for a secret santa thing this christmas. I made this one so I could have a new scripture bag, and I think that makes 1, 2, 3..., 4, 5, 6, no just five. What can I say?
This one is made of two, and again the straps are long enough to go over the shoulder. The fringe was already on there. Shelice is going to use this as a purse.

****For instructions on how to make these purses leave a comment or shoot us an email!

Day 2: Button Cards

I saw buttons, I saw cards, I saw ribbon and some how these made the following cards
cute quotes on vellum are included in the pack for them to chose where they go.

I couldn't resist making the YW value cards like Ellie, with my own twist

Another set of buttons rounded out my day!
