Some weekend projects

Something for the shop...I think

2 pillows made, one or two to go...

A friend, who is also a teacher ordered a clipboard. I think it turned out cute. She might be the envy of all the other teachers on the playground...

Sprucing up my Porch

Not too long from now I am hosting a church-wide bridal shower at my house. It is a little scary to think about having 50 or so women over here, yet it is motivating me to do some much needed stuff. My porch looks a bit sad right now, so I bought this pretty outdoor fabric to make some pillows for my bench. I haven't decided if I will paint the bench or not- probably depends on the time frame, but I love this fabric. I got it today. I will for sure post the before and afters of the porch.

Also had to get this yummy Amy Butler print in order to earn the free shipping on my order. Ha! Maybe a new skirt for me...

Also, look for this polka dot tie onesie being listed in the shop soon. I am trying to get busy on shop stuff too.

Welcome to the shop Blog

I decided that I needed to create a etsy shop blog. I work better with compartmentalizing my life. I am not very good at self-promoting my stuff, however I want my etsy shop to succeed. Also, I didn't want to bore the relatives with all my crafts when they really just probably want to see the kids. But I know there are so many crafty blogs out there that I wanted in on the action. You can decide which blog you want to read...or both! I am going to highlight my "projects" on this blog. Some will be posted in my shop and some won't because they will be for me or a gift, or perhaps garage sale material. You never know how things will turn out sometimes. My goal in black and white- spotlight at least two crafts a week. Hope you will come and check them out.

For my first post: I made another memory can for a friend's baby. Her room colors were black, white, and pink. I really like the way it came out. Just love girlie things!!
