Its been a while..

Add ImageI found this awesome bean bag chair that is just one of the coolest things I have ever seen for kids. not only is it for storage but its is also functional .
It has mesh openings that zip open to put stuffed animals in so not only is it good for storing all of those endless piles of stuffed animals and such but it also makes a cool seat for the kids to play with....

On another note I haven't fallen off of my craft bandwagon. well maybe i have but it was just a break and took a rest from all of my craftiness...
i started to work on a patchwork curtain for A's room. the fabric i used is from Heather ross called mendocino. its got pretty little mermaids and seahorses and octopuses and fish on it. i saw it and knew just what to do with it. in fact it has made me question whether or not I will make A's quilt with the same fabric i already have cut out and partially peiced together. Here are the differences in the fabrics.Im just crazy over the mermaids. It just looks like such fun fabric to have in a little girls room... eventually i'll get to T's room will be much more boyish and it will be something he can grow with.... too bad there arent so many options with boys.. I was thinking a robot theme for T.
The above fabric is from David walker.
This fabric is called Bot camp from Micheal miller. I think I like this one the best but it will be determined by T. He may not even want robots but my guess is that he will b/c hes really into space and science stuff..

enough on that stuff now....

I have been searching the web a bit lately and have seen some great stuff to make with felt. I am really wanting to make something with felt. whether its a brooch or just a little stuffed toy of whatever I just want to make something cute. I saw somewhere on another blog where they made felt food for their kids to play with. Its just a cute idea. I think my kids would get a big kick out of. I even saw somewhere where they made a dog food bowl and water bowl and I know that my kids would love it. They have been playing with their stuffed dogs constantly.

There are just endless uses and so many ideas going through my head. I cant wait to get moving on it.

My fabric yo-yos

I have become addicted to making fabric yo-yos. they are super simple to make and look cute. I usually make them while my dh and I are watching movies... we dont have cable so we watch movies and rent the tv shows we like to watch. I am going to fill up the jar with yo-yos made from the fabric scraps from previous projects. arent they just awesome.!!!

Matchbook notebooks

These are matchbook notebooks that I made using computer paper and scrapbook paper. I love stationary so I just love them. they are perfect for fitting in small pockets for quick lists and anything really. there were super easy to make too...
you can also see the owl stamp that I made. I looked at michaels and acmoore for some cute owl stamps and small ones that size were 10-15 dollars so I decided to make one..

Belt Buckle

I made this for a friend. its a belt buckle that I put resin over. It was intended to be a christmas present but didnt get done it time.

Buns the sock bunny

My sister and I have started a weekly or biweekly craft day. this week was our first craft and we made sock animals. My dd wanted a bunny so I made a bunny. It turned out to be pretty shabby but she loves and thats all that really matters. My sister made a sock monkey zombie for my ds. Im excited to see how hers comes out. If she lets me I'll post it too.. but here is my attempt at a sock bunny... I kinda can't help but feel sorry for him.. ;)

Introducing Herman

I have decided to try to include my “pet” owl Herman in every picture I take for this blog. He will be my mascot per se. so keep an eye out… maybe when I get going good with this blog I’ll make a contest or something out of finding him… anyway I doubt anyone is even really reading this as of yet so no time soon.. I’m excited though about my venture with craft blogging… I don’t remember if I said this in the previous blog but I have really enjoyed checking out other blogs and I hope that one day my blog will be an inspiration to someone else…

oh yea and before I forget here is Herman…

Isn’t he a cutie!!! He usually sits in my car but my dd brought him inside and I thought it might be funny to include him in my blog since I love owls…
