Fun in the Snow

For those of us that are covered in a blanket of snow, here's a great idea to do with small children.

Painting Snow

My kids loved it. You just need spray bottles, food coloring and water:) Water bottles and dish soap bottles work well too.





And a sneak peek at a work in progress...

A week in pictures...

Really has it all ready been a week?

Dealing with the freezing weather in Illinois with good soup.


















A little jewelry making.






















Lizzy got a new bag. I'll snap a picture of her using it soon, she has been really sick, and if it doesn't involve Popsicles, play dough or Dora she wants nothing to do with it:)




































Working on some new tote bags that will be in the shop soon
And the blog and I had a Birthday!!!

Been there (designed that) & A Swap!

Last night while at the fabric store, I found fabric that I designed. About 8 months ago I designed some fabric very close to the fabric below, but I trashed it because I didn't think it was good enough. Now it's no (insert your fav designer here) but still I ALWAYS sell myself short and feel that my work isn't good enough, well not no more lesson learned.


*So my next post will be the big 50. And in honor of that I'm hosting a Fat Quarter Swap! More info in the next post which will be sometime tonight, because I'm too excited to wait.
