Pillowcase Dress version 1

Wednesday, April 28, 2010
I have been wanting to make something like this for a while. Last night I tried it for the first time. Not too bad, I must say. It's a lot longer than I meant for it to be on her, but it could easily be worn as dress for church. She loved it and even wore it to school today, so it must not have been too bad! I'll chalk it up as a success.

THANK YOU

Thursday, April 22, 2010
I just wanted to say a HUGE thank you to everyone who came out to the boutique yesterday. I had a record show!! Which is quite a compliment and something I have really been working at so it's nice to have some positive feedback. I have some new bags done up and other fun and exciting things to come, so check back and hopefully I'll remember to get them posted before they become old news!

new art

Tuesday, April 6, 2010
Since it is Spring break here, we are enjoying not having a schedule, I should say- I am enjoying not having a schedule. So this morning my daughter and I decided to do some crafts together. I had these dollar frames from Michaels sitting around and I had been hoarding this paper to make something for my bedroom, since I love Basic Grey and these are the perfect colors for my room.
We decided to mod podge the frames and then I'll add pictures of all my kiddos and hang them on the wall in my room. I haven't decided if they'll go over the bed, or on another wall, but they will make it in there somewhere.


After we put the paper on, we stained the edges of the frames. This was a learning experience for my daughter and she really enjoyed getting to do some of the things she had only been allowed to watch me do before. They look great I think and I'm excited to get pictures in them and hang them in my room. I will add some ribbons, buttons etc. , but the papers are so cute, I don't think I will do all that much to them. There is a small hole on the back that you use to stick the small dowel in to stand the frames up, so I just turn them over and use the hole to hang them in. But the state you see them in is where they are living right now since my sweet dear decided she's done with crafts for today. Hopefully I'll have some time this afternoon to get them finished up and off the kitchen counter.
