Few Projects

Finished up a few projects this week... whew that felt good to get those done.
A Big Sis shirt for Maddie
Owl onesie for Baby Brother
A tractor t shirt for a friend

My assistant
She loves helping sew & wants me to take a picture
of her and anything & everything she can find.
Here she's showing off a little jacket of which I
added an inital applique for a friend's
baby shower.

Also made this little ladybug onesie for the shower.
Got a cute lil lady bug sun bonnet too match
Thinking I need to add some antennas to the ladybug.
Not sure if I think it without any

Finished Maddie's big sister shirt for her to
where to the hospital to meet her new brother.
Also got her some big sister coloring pages
a card with a big sis medal sticker.
Anyone have any ideas or thoughts about introducing her to her little brother ?

Hope everyone has a great Holiday weekend!

For Sale:
This repurposed pair of Vintage owls
painted a bright orange
I was going to use them in babys nursery but changed my mind.
They are now for sale in my Etsy shop. Check out the listing here
Super cute gift for the owl collector
or would be cute in a playroom or childs room.
I'll have to show you pictures of what I ended up using instead.

Also for sale is this teal damask phone case
I bought it off of Etsy awhile ago and hardly used it.
And now I have a new phone and it doesn't fit.
It has a pocket on the front perfect for credit cards or your license.
Email me if you are interested.
Asking $5
Just realized I didn't get the measurements.
 I will add them to this post later :( sorry

Build a bear

Stuffing her bear

Daddy helping give her bear a bath

We decided to take Miss Maddie to Build a Bear this past weekend
as a reward for going #2 in the potty for several weeks
and for doing a much better job listening to Mommy & Daddy.
Just when we thought we had her pretty much potty trained.
She started having trouble with someone going #2 in
her big girl panties out of the blue. Just at home, she was fine
at school and at a restaurant.
And she knows how to do it, that's what made me mad. 
 I think most of it was she just didn't want to stop playing or
whatever she was doing.

Pouring water on his head by accident

Not happy

Still not happy

His daddy came to the rescue.
