Snow Day!!!

Most of us here in Michigan had an extra long weekend, and no not because of the Super Bowl!  We had a big snow storm here last night and most of us are snowed in!!  The kids had a snow day and I had a work snow day! It’s such a great feeling to work for a great company that is so thoughtful for their employee’s and their safety!!

So anyways, with an extra day to be home and craft, I decided to finish up a few Etsy orders and get some new things out there for folks to purchase!  I just made this super cute Detroit Tiger’s Shirt that I think will be a hot seller since EVERYONE loves the Tigers! il_570xN.721481446_c0k1

I also designed some Valentine’s Day Cards for my son and decided that why not add them to Etsy to share if anyone else wanted to be able to use them!

Both of my son’s are still playing lots of hockey, either out in our front yard, or at the rink.  Caden got to practice with the Michigan State Spartans hockey team on his birthday and that was exciting for him!  Brody gets to do it in a couple of weeks.  But Brody also got to participate in a shoot-out between periods at the MSU vs OSU hockey game on January 24th and it was such a great experience! We were so proud of him and of course, he SCORED!!!

Baby Shower Gifts

With a few new babies coming from friends and family, it’s the perfect opportunity for me to use my new multi-needle embroidery machine and make those cute gifts I’d been dying to make for awhile.  With my single needle, it’s not as easy to make these so I had shyed away from making bigger named projects just because it’s so complex.  But no longer will I do that!! I LOVE my new Brother Entrepreneur PE-650e!

I made this matching set for my old co-worker/friend who is due with a little girl around Thanksgiving.  We are throwing her a little shower today with some co-workers and it will be fun to see all my old friends!DSC_0217-1

The gown was ordered and I appliqued her name onto it.  I found this fabulous fabric at Hobby Lobby, so bright and cheerful!!  I made her a matching bib with the pattern that my aunt mailed me when I was pregnant with my son 9 years ago!  It’s a great pattern and perfect size for babies!!  And homemade is WAY better then store bought!  I also purchased the little knit hat and put her name on it too!  Perfect for hospital pictures!DSC_0221-1

Making this tag blanket was super easy.  Just use a 12″ x 12″ piece of fabric and minky backing, along with various ribbons and stitch it together.  Babies love these things!DSC_0222-1 DSC_0224-1

made her this beautiful gown out of a onsie and fabric.  I saw a few patterns on Pinterest and kinda made up my own.  I didn’t take pictures, but maybe next time.  It has elastic on the bottom just like the regular gowns.  Matching bib with minky on the back and a personalize burp cloth for Miss Sophia!DSC_0226-1 I can’t wait to see her open it today, which is why I set the blog to publish later on so she won’t see it til she opens it at the shower!!!  Congrats Matt & Amanda!

Project 365, Day 15

I headed to JoAnn’s with Caden today to try and find some fabric for a few shirts I got orders for.  They are Valentine’s shirts and gonna be super cute!   I also still have to make a bag for a friend that she ordered so I had to get some interfacing for that.  Anyways, I made this super cute shirt! 

Brody had basketball so I ran him up there, started dinner, went back to grab him and we finished dinner.  I made super yummy dessert too! 

I saw this idea on Pinterest.  I just took small taco sized flour tortila shells, apple pie filling, sugar and cinnamon.  I rolled the apple pie filling into the shells and fried them on each side in the pan.  Then when they were out I put them in a mixture of sugar and cinnamon and they were done!  SO YUMMY!  Definitely a good recipe from Pinterest!
