I'm Baaack!

Whew! It's been a rough several weeks. We've had two rounds of strep in the house, and I had to do 3 rounds of antibiotics before I got well! Needless to say, I haven't gotten much done. EXCEPT....I've been cutting out feathers. Lots and lots of feathers. Pink ones at that! I cut out 246 individual fleece feathers to make the girls' halloween costumes.

They turned out ADORABLE!!! And cheap!!! I had everything in my stash except the pink hoodies.

I've got to thank the genius behind the blog Following Phubie. She posted the directions on how to make this fantastic costume. To make it easier, I glued the feathers in place and then went back and sewed them on. It went really fast and the girls will be able to wear them as jackets this winter.

The girls love their costumes and have been getting all kinds of "Whooooo's and Awe's"

Fall Blocks

I'm finally catching up on posting pictures of the things I've been making. I made these blocks several weeks ago and never got around to putting the picture up. They are in a shelf in the Craft Cave right now, but after Halloween, the EEK blocks will come down and these will go up.

Pumpkin Poop!

I saw this liast year and thought it was so cute! I've made a batch for the girls to give their classmates.

Here's a close-up of the poem.

I'm Back!

Sorry I've been gone for an entire month. Since school has started, the girls have brought home every illness known to man. I'm still recovering from a really bad case of strep throat. I thought I was going to end up in the ER because my throat became so swollen, I could hardly breathe.

But, I'm back and have been recuperating in my craft room! Here's some pictures of a few things I've made.

I decided to get started on teacher Christmas gifts. I'm working on a few other things to go with the post-it note holders. Like this personalized hand sanitizer...
