I'm Back!

We actually got back from our vacation on the 29th of October... We had a blast! I'm hoping that as soon as possible I can start posting fun crafts in here again. In the meantime I've been working my behind off on opening my own Etsy store!

I just stocked it with a bunch of purses, wallets and fabric key chains this past weekend. I'm hoping that it will take off soon... I only have about 2 more months before I give birth to my baby boy. Hoping to sell off at least a few items before I have to put it all on hold. :)

Maybe next year around this time I can even do my first craft fair. We'll see...

On Vacation....

 Yup, we're on our way to St. Louis to visit one of my best friends who moved back there about a year ago.
We'll be back before Halloween!

When I get back I'll start posting more stuff for Thanksgiving and Christmas! :)

Custom Burp Cloths

After making a few of my own burpies I decided to go a different route...

For these I bought some new prefold cloth diapers from Target and added some personal touches.

Sewed on a strip of flannel fabric down the middle...

And added a decorative stitch in a matching thread color down both sides.

Also made a couple for my sister...

And taught myself how to add a monogram using my sewing machine.
(Too bad I didn't spend a lil more $$ to get a machine that did it all for me... Had to do this all by hand!)

Another Diaper Bag Sewn By Me!

Same design as the owl print corduroy one I made. With just a few adjustments. 
There's now 4 pockets on the front.

4 pockets across the back.

And 6 pockets on the inside lining. (Two of them made to perfectly fit my camera and my cell phone.)

I really like the colors on this one. The green fabric was an awesome find at Walmart. $3 for 2 yards of it! (Only wish I had bought more...)

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Cupcakes

Yes this is from kevinandamanda.com... again... 
I saw this post and just couldn't resist! Can you tell that I love cookie dough?
Well I do.

But don't these look sooooo good? 
Maybe it's the pregnancy talking...
Or maybe not...

I don't own a fancy schmancy camera just yet, but I have lots of friends who do... Christmas present?
This is from the same blog as yesterday's post... 
What can I say? I love KevinandAmanda.com

Glittered Fall Pumpkins

I think these are cute.. and a good alternative to buying the live pumpkins.
Pack these up each year and bring them out every October!
Very easy tutorial can be found here.
