Minky Giraffe Pants

LOVE these little pants I made for baby B. Super simple, very similar way of making it as the Made tutorial. I added ruffles to the bottom for some kicky flash :)

Valentine Box

A little late is better than never, right?

I found this idea on Pinterest, and ran with it. Well, slowly guided my 4 year old who had her own ideas and vision of what to do with the supplies I gave her...

Connor's Blanket

We have SO many pregnant friends right now...I have a complete inventory of material ready for baby blankets, my go to baby gift :)  I love flannel on one side and minky on the other, it's been a favorite of ours here so that is what I make our friends!

A dump truck for a Construction company owning daddy!

So soft and cozy, makes me want to snuggle in :)

Froggy Cake Pops

My friend's little girl was turning 4, and she asked me to help her make Cake Pops for the party! It is a tedious task, so it's always more fun to make them with a friend :)
My friend had gotten all the supplies, so this was none of my creativity, I just showed up and supplied the labor :) We used the Wilton Markers and were sadly unimpressed with their sticking power on the chocolate.

I loved the "Rocker" Valentine's so much from I am Momma - Hear me Roar, that I had to create my own! We went to Papa's house and borrowed his guitar. They were so fun, but hard to decide on pictures afterwards!

D even drew a picture on the back of hers :)

Usually it is the girls that have too many pictures for me to pick from, this time it was H that had a ton of good pictures!

 I had a sick baby at home, so she missed her photo opportunity.

It's been too cold to go outside again, so I tried inside, this was my third time sitting down with her (which is part of the reason for lack of creativity in outfit) and out of three different "sessions" with B, this was the best we could get. I guess that's what happens with 1 year olds :)

Kids Art

To finish off the "art work" in the kids room, I wanted something fun to make fun of the fact that it is a brother and sister sharing a room.

I made a sign to hang over each kids bed, to show that it is their personal space!

I threw together the signs in Photoshop, uploaded them to Wal-mart and had them printed on canvas. Why Wal-mart? Because it is where I found the cheapest canvas :)

The picture doesn't show it very well, but each child is in a Junior Loft. As much as I would have loved normal bunk beds to make the room feel bigger, I had two concerns 1) they would fight over who got the top bunk, and 2) the ceiling is too low and they would hit themselves on the ceiling fan!

With two beds in there, I wanted additional space, so the junior lofts creates a play area underneath for them. I'm in the works on creating curtains so that they can have "forts" under their beds!
