A little bit of this

Last night we had a bonfire in our back yard and I decided I wanted some s'mores. Now usually I am the person who piles all of the s'more supplies in my arms and gets outside as fast as I can before I drop anything. This time I decided to be smart.

(sorry for the blurriness, it is dark in my kitchen at night)

I took a cookie sheet and threw all of my supplies on there and carried them outside. I even had a free hand to grab my water to take with. Now this may seem like common sense to everyone but it was a revolation to me! I'm planning on making a decorative backyard/s'mores tray in the future once I finish all of my other in progress projects have time. 

This is a project I have been working on. (Dark photo due to dark garage).

I can't wait to see how it turns out. I'll be working on it this weekend!

And just because they are cute, here are my babies!

Baby Gift

And I'm back! Sorry for being away so long but it has been a busy time since I've been back from vacation. I want to show you something I did for my sister in law's baby shower this weekend.

I am doing some custom vinyl art for her nursery as her gift but it wasn't going to be done in time for her shower so I wanted to make her something else for her to open. I decided to do a basket of burpees (fancy burp rags). Mostly I did this because when I had my son, I didn't like many of the designs for burp rags that were available in stores. I chose some flannel fabric with the colors of her nursery and sewed her a set.

This is what I ended up with. The fabric is sewn on to white cloth diapers down the center. I really loved all the baby fabric options that I used for this. I may make my son something out of them. The giraffe print was my favorite so I decided to make her a little stuffed animal as well to go along with it.

The other side of the giraffe has the blue fabric that I used with a little ribbon that I had on hand. I had never sewn a stuffed animal before and it was quite an interesting process but it turned out cute!

Sets of these burp rags will be available on my Etsy shop (get their by clicking the link on my sidebar) by the end of this week with boy and girl options.

Stay tuned for some home decor projects this week!
