I also got the clip board calendar done for my youngest daughter and the pictures printed off for my mom's photo box and my oldest daughters clip board calendar. They are fantastic gift idea's, next year I have made a list of things I want to make everyone... :)

Postponed once again - TOOO much going on

So I once again changed my mind and decided to WAIT on my sewing projects because I just have to much going on and don't want to stop in the middle fo a project! This weekend I'll drive 5 hours to pick up my two sons, then Sat. we're putting up the tree, making ornaments and stockings - then a pizza contest and a game of Easy Money :P Sunday we're backing cookies and buckeyes and lots of goodies - then a movie - the another 5 hours to take the boys back!

Setting Up Space

I have the whole dinning room set up for my sewing/craft area! Sewing machine (that my handy dandy boyfriend got running smoothly) set up, along with my material, patterns and tools. Ready to get down to business...I also saw a few cute little things I can make for quick gifts from a friend that she made - I'm a bad copy cat~!
