Embroidered Pillow

Have I mentioned that we don't have television right now? It's been 3 months now and so this is what I do with the extra time that I usually waste on television shows... I embroider!

I finished this pillow about a week ago, but have been too lazy to post it. Anyway, I love how it turned out. Enjoy.

Happy Jack-o-lanterns

I had two of my sisters-in-law over to craft yesterday... which was so fun to craft and chat at the same time. We painted these fun paper clay jack-o-lanterns for Halloween decorations. I pre-made them before hand so that the paper clay would have time to dry.
Look how cute they all look together! In order: Chelsey, mine, Alexis

Thanks for the fun afternoon of crafting girls. Let's do it again soon!

Introducing...

a new blog for crafting with kids.

Baby Bibs and a Christmas Elf

I have a lot of friends who are expecting babies soon so I thought I would make some fun bibs. I think they turned out cute.
I embroidered this Christmas Elf. I had a lot of fun with this, but now I don't know what to do with it. Any ideas? Should I frame it, sew it to a decorative pillow...?

Random Craft Projects


I am starting to make some Halloween ornaments for my Halloween tree... I am having so much fun. Here is my crazy jack-o'lantern.
Here is a girly fabric banner that I will probably be posting in my etsy shop soon. It is perfect for a little girls' room.
Here it is again draped across my daughter's headboard.
Another banner. This time a Thanksgiving one strung across a mirror. I am having so much fun making these.
