Crafting for babies

Crafting for babies

Burp cloths and a linen blanket for baby Lily. Material from this Etsy shop…from South Korea! Flannel burp cloths and blanket for the soon-to-be-born child of our dearest former neighbors! And a little something just for Daddy. Burp cloths made from James’ old sweatshirt and Kyle’s old flannel! (I used it to make napkins last […]

Matching Games

Matching Games

Do you have any friends who are always doing kind things (like watching your kiddos) and never accepting anything in return? I do. So I had to get smart crafty. What momma turns down things for her kids? I made little Miss M here her very own fabric matching game. Aren’t the fabrics SO fun […]

Crafting

When I pinned this Anthropologie-esque DIY shower curtain, I had no idea what my spring break would contain. Mary Jackson did, though. Nine hours, two bags of gummy worms, and one package of cookies later, we emerged victorious.

Recent Craftiness

Recent Craftiness

I’ve been having a blast with my sewing machine these past several months. Here’s a little peek into some of the craftiness: I sent this butterfly to my 7th grade math teacher who is not doing well physically. I hope it brightened her day! Burp cloths for Baby D with towels for the back; super […]

Eating and pounding and visiting and more!

Eating and pounding and visiting and more!

Corban is learning to feed himself with silverware. Corban loooves bath time. Isn’t he cute?? We’re still going strong with the cloth diapering. When we had the flu (out both ends), that was no fun. But still. It’s been worth it! Look at that little belly bulging out. We visited with Jeff & Deborah at […]

Early Christmas

Early Christmas

We celebrated Thanksgiving (that post will be next…yes, I realize it’s out of order, but it’ll be okay!) with the Hutchens this weekend. And Corban’s birthday (which will be next, next). And Christmas (which, in case you haven’t caught on is right now!). I have been sooo excited for this year’s gift-giving and have been […]

A problem solved

A problem solved

We bought these blocks at a garage sale last weekend. (James remembers playing with this set as a kid!) Sadly, they came in that plastic bag. And we know what Corban does to things he gets his hands on! I remembered reading a blog about making a drawstring bag out of a t-shirt. So I […]

Sewing: Success at Last

Sewing: Success at Last

James can’t stand using our store-bought wipes. And for good reason. They’re pretty awful. I’ve been promising to use my leftover baby blanket fabric to make new wipes for about, oh, two months or so. It’s just that me and sewing aren’t always on speaking terms. But today I decided to just do it. Aaand […]

I love it; I love it not.

I love it; I love it not.

I have a love-hate relationship with sewing. Tonight was mostly hate. But then I gave it to Corban to try it out (after I eliminated all the awfulness), and…well, see for yourself: He loved the way it crinkled, and… …he loved the silky tags to chew on. (This is what I made, by the way; […]
