Hairbows

Ta-dah! Hairbows! Because I am expecting a baby literally any day now, I don't want to start any big projects (mostly because I don't want to have a messy craft table when my mom comes). So I decided to do a little project instead, and made some new hair bows for my daughter. There's a whole variety here....

Twins!

Tonight I'm going to a baby shower for a friend who just had twins--a boy and a girl. I made these little shoes for them. I just can't get over how sweet it is to have one set pink and one set blue. And if you think the shoes are sweet, the babies are even sweeter. Congratulations...

Necktie Onesie

I've seen these little necktie onesies all over and today I finally got around to making one. It was super easy. I just fused the striped fabric to the onesie using Wonder Under and satin stitched around the edges. I think Little Brother will look so adorable wearing this!

Blackberry Jam

Today I picked blackberries and made freezer jam. I was able to get six pints and one quart of jam with enough berries left over to make blackberry cobbler and still have some berries left for breakfast tomorrow. And that doesn't even include all the berries my daughter and I ate while making the jam. Definitely a...
After spending what felt like an eternity doing laundry yesterday, I have to post about my all-time favorite household product. OxiClean is simply the most miraculous product I've ever used. I do not say miracle lightly, either. With a stain-making champion three-year-old daughter, I've had a lot of nasty stains to get rid of and OxiClean has...
A week or two ago, Today's Creative Blog did a feature on this blog: http://sycamorestirrings.blogspot.com/. She had the cutest idea to make lunchtime fun...muffin tin meals!!! So I decided to try it today with my three year old. This is a picture of my first try at it...hot dog, bread squares, cheese, frozen peas, sliced pickles, mini...
I've been sick of my bathroom for a long time. My husband is a student and we have been renting for the last five years. We've had the same bathroom stuff for five years too. I'd love to just go out and buy a new shower curtain, matching towels, rug, and accessories, but we're poor college...
Here's a fun little project I made about a year ago. We use these scripture puppets to help my daughter learn the stories from the Bible and Book of Mormon. I made the basic characters--a king, a prophet, an angel, etc. and we use them over and over. Sometimes I even make "props" to go along with specific...

Magnetic Paint

I've had a lot of people ask me questions about the paint I used to make my magnetic quiet book. So I thought I'd post a picture of the can so everyone knows what it is and what it looks like. I found it at Michael's in the paint section. At mine, it was hidden on the...
In one week my brother-in-law is getting married. Everyone has been busy with wedding preparations. The bride chose black and white as her wedding colors, so we purchased this polka dot fabric for a project, then decided to go with something else. What do you do with six yards of extra fabric? Make matching skirts for all the...
