In Process…

Why is it that when you are crazy busy with stuff, more tends to roll into your lap???

In addition to this, and these and all the things I am trying to do for my job at church to prepare for Christmas I have this (that I just plain want off my sewing table)


and this (for a baby shower on Saturday)


and this (for the creative team I am on)


that I need (and want) to get done asap! Not to mention that Christmas (and my little chick’s birthday) is coming sooner than I think and I’ve got a ton of gifts to make before then!

Talk about crunch time!

So, this year I saw these in Pottery Barn Kids: (cute, but we don’t have that kind of cash to put into our holiday decorating!)

Read this post and thought I can do this! So off to Hobby Lobby and Michael’s!

So hopefully in the next few weeks I will show you what

this (for roughly $13.00)

and this (for roughly $24)

turned into. Or else I just show you the trash can where I threw them. Martha Stewart I am not! Nor am I Grace Violet. Let’s hope mine turn out half as cute as hers!
