Letter to Santa

I saw a really cute idea for a letter to Santa, but didn't want to spend a ton on a I made my own version using a kit called Christmas Whimsy.  Just click & print.  The boys both loved writing their lists & it is great for a little one who is still learning their letters {my 4 year old}.  I just printed mine out on my color printer.  Enjoy.

My latest project...

I am almost finished with my first real quilting project.  I have two to do for the boys for Christmas.  I am really excited.  I will post more when the first quilt finished & post where I got the pattern.

New Ugly Friends

My boys always get a new "friend" for Christmas.  They really don't need any new friends.  They have a ton already!  Now that I have taken up sewing, I wanted to try to make them a new fun friend.  Have you seen Ugly Dolls?  I don't know why, but I love them!  They are pretty I decided to try to attempt making them.  I think that they are made with a wool or felt, but I wanted something softer.  I went with flannel.  I actually took the boys to the store & let them pick out their flannel color.  For everything else I just used felt that I had left over from other projects.  I just sketched out what I wanted & got busy.  I love how they turned out & can't wait until the boys open these on Christmas.  {I only spent $5.00 for the felt & then everything else I already had.  I even stuffed them with the fluff from an old pillow.}

My favorite thing is the heart that I added on the back.  That was my own sweet touch for my boys.

Happy Halloween

Happy Halloween!!!
from the creepy Scream guy, Batgirl, Spiderman, & Wolverine.

I barely finished my costume in time for the festivities.  I love trying to coordinate with the boys.  They loved my costume.

Mummy Shirt

Kaden's class wasn't allowed to wear their costumes to school this year.  Kaden was really bummed about it.  I remembered seeing a really cute Mummy Shirt tutorial over at Super Mom Moments.  I made it in no time last night using scraps from our donate pile.  When Kaden woke up & saw his new shirt...he was so excited.  I am so glad that I could make him smile & be excited to wear something to school...even if it isn't his costume.

Forgive Me...

It has been one of those months.  Now that Fall has little guy has been sick {as usual.}  Whenever the poor little guy gets a cold...he starts coughing & it never ends!  We have been up for nights doing breathing treatments, but ended up at the Dr. after a bit.  He is now on an antibiotic for a sinus infection & steriods & breathing treatments for his cough.  I can honestly say that I have been so exhausted that my fabric stash has sat untouched for about a month now.  My house isn't decorated for Halloween & it may not get decorated.  So, thank you for your patience & I will be back as soon as my little one is better.

It's a bird...It's a plane...

Nope!  It is Super Tooth!!!

I have had this idea bookmarked FOR.EV.ER!!!  I knew that Kaden had to be losing a tooth soon.  He has been waiting to have a loose tooth since Kindergarten last year.

This weekend, we were eating corn on the cob & Kaden started complaining that his teeth hurt.  He seemed a bit alarmed by the whole thing at first.  I felt his little tooth wiggle & I SCREAMED!!!  Yes, I was so excited that I actually screamed & grabbed his little face to give it a kiss.  Okay, enough of my story. 

Super Tooth is Kaden's new little tooth pillow.  The idea & tutorial are over at mmmcrafts.  The tooth's mouth is a little pocket to keep the new lost tooth in.  Then, the Tooth Fairy will leave the reward inside of the pocket.  I love this idea & it makes it easier for the Tooth Fairy.  There are different variations.  I saw a Tooth Marshall, a Tooth Officer, a cute Tooth Ballerina, & a Tooth Fairy.  I came up with the Super Tooth idea.  My boys are really into Super Heroes.  Another fun tooth pillow idea is a Tooth Pirate.  I let Kaden pick & he jumped right on the Super Tooth idea.
