Something for the babies

I was recently asked to create a shower gift for a friend.  My limitations were this, had to be girly!  This is what I came up with

I'm just in love with making those little fabric baskets.  So much fun to make and super cute.  If you want one of your own message me here or through my etsy shop here 

Loving this Michael Miller fabric line, Gypsy Paisley!

Bento Boxes and a great new shop

Ive been wanting to join the Bento revolution for awhile.  I follow several blogs that share bento creations and just love the fresh food they are offering their familys, and how cute they are displayed.  I was recently invited to a new shop and made a few purchases. Here is one

Im thinking my daughter is going to love this for valentines day.  Hoping it fits nicely in her valentine basket I made.

Here is another one we purschased and Im no sure if its for me or my daughter yet, lol.

Visit Joss & Main and check out what else they have.

Moving, ugh

Moving.  That word makes me tired.  Hearing it, saying it, listening to it causes fatigue.
We have been blessed more then most military families to be stabilized for a VERY long time.  So long in fact I almsot forget we are a military family sometimes. Besides the year long deployments, camo, and combat boots that are sprinkled around the house, I feel like we have joined the civilian world again.  Its amazing how much joy stabilization can bring.  Moving. The thought of moving brings us back to reality.  Its sobering. The end. Well, not so much this time.  I am actually excited for a new house, the loads of new opportunity that await us, and the joy of living with my husband again without 2 hour commutes.
Ive mentioned this before but I long for a breakfast bar.  One of the things this move brings me is a breakfast bar! Woohooo.  Seriously folks, its the little things.  Among other pieces of furniture we want to buy, I need barstools   I am up in the air about what style will be the most fun and functional with 4 kids.  Im thinking some without a back, and with a solid surface.  At the same time, I would also like to be able to make some cute and funky chair pads too.  Anyone have an opinion on what works for their family?

Here is one I have picked out so far.

Valentines Baskets

Ive been wanting to make some fabric baskets for some time and decided Valentines would be the perfect time.

Orders are already flowing in and I am so excited to see them all come together.  I have some very talented customers when it comes to putting fabric together.

Im hoping to publish the pattern for these soon.  If you would be interested in it, leave me a comment.  I could use the encouragement!

Thanks for stopping by
