Back to School!

It's been a crazy week. First week of school, sick kids ALREADY, just hectic. Here's my babies on their first day. Jace is in 2nd grade now and Cy in Pre-K....sigh. I swear they were just born yesterday.

On another note, I received tons of new yummy fabric and I've listed soo many new zipper pouches in the shop.

Oooh..and several different sets of earrings. I'm wearing some like these right now. Love. :)

I'm off to cross some more things off my to-do list....

Circles Quilt for Lexie

My nephew and 2 nieces that I hardly ever see. :(

I started this quilt after Alexa was born, but well....sometimes life happens and things fall by the did this little quilt. I decided to finish it up and send it out to her. She's a big girl now, but she can still use it as a play mat. :) Hoping to see them soon...maybe for the holidays. :)

Some More Banner Love!

I can't get enough of them...just can't, lol. They're just too cute. I had started these a couple weeks ago and finally got them finished and listed in the shop. I *heart* them so much! I've been feeling pretty crafty lately and have soo many ideas in my head. I'm already working on another new item that I can't wait to finish!! Just waiting on something coming from overseas. Good stuff.

I signed up for the 2nd round of {Urban} Home Goods Swap on flickr, and I'm having so much creating for my partner.

Now that I've purged so much of my scrap supplies, I'm finally scrapping again. I've been kicking it with the girls over at Noel Mignon's and joining in some challenges. Loving it.

Other than all that. Things have been pretty calm over here. Enjoying the laziness before our routine starts up again with my 2 big boys going to school. 2 down...3 to go.

Gift for my new nephew!

My nephew Moises was born on my birthday, June 14! How awesome is that! I'd hoped to have his quilt and other items before he was born but, well he decided to come a little earlier than expected. I've finally finished it, and his package is ready to go out to him. I made him a quilt, some burpcloths, and onesies. Hope he likes them! :)

New Item in the Shop!

Aren't these the cutest!! I already made one for myself for my business cards. Perfect for those quick trips to the store when you all you need is an id and money. Love them! They're up in the shop and ready to go to new homes. :)

I have been scrapping up a storm! The 2peas CHA social really helped me get out of my funk. Here's a few pages I've done. And I just got my Aug. SC kit, and I will be digging in this evening!! Yay!! Enjoy your weekend, guys! :)

Banner Love!!

Yes...I'm in love with all the cute lil' banners that we're seeing everywhere. I just had to make one to go into my itty bitty laundry room which I have finished decorating, I think. I do want to get a white cabinet instead of the wood one I have, though. So, here's before:

And here's after:

The cute laundry print is from Tasha from ALittleSweetness. I just adore all her items! I got the candle from Hobby Lobby, the shelf from Home Depot, and the frame, hangers, and storage crates from Target. All done. And it brings a little happiness into a space that makes me cringe. :)

I've been participating in the 2peas CHA social and I actually made these for a challenge, but they're just too cute, so I'll be posting them in the shop in a sec. I'm thinking of making some more of those totes in different color combos. Oooo, and some fabric albums with cute banners on the cover. Maybe later in the week. ;)
Well, that's all for now. Gotta go start dinner. Peace. :)
