Needless to say, I've been crafting, just not blogging about it.

So, most of these pictures probably aren't the best quality because they are from my phone and usually at night when I finish my project.   Hopefully you'll still be able to see all that I have been doing!

These are barefoot sandals for little babies.  I was gonna try and get pictures of them on a baby foot tonight but the baby was a bit fussy so it didn't happen. :(

Mirror I originally bought for me to put in the house somewhere but it's going in my craft booth for people to see themselves in the hat their going to buy from me! :D

The scrapbook page I did for Scrapbooking Club

This hat goes with the sweater that is down below.

Busy Bee

I have been REALLY busy creating away lately.  I have crocheted a few hats and have been working on some wood projects as well.

This is an infant size ear flap hat that is pretty cute with that big over sized flower!

I found a hat similar to this on etsy that I thought was so cute so I had to try it out for myself.  I've also made a pink and black one with zebra print bows.  SO cute!  I should take a picture of it and post it too.

This was an owl hat I made for my friends baby by request.  I had only pinned the facial features on in this picture just for the effect so it looks a little wonky but it turned out great when it was finished and looks SO cute on her.

I found the idea for these cuties on pintrest but I had to do something a little different because I didn't like the  fact that they came apart and I wanted them to have a base, so this is what I came up with. What do ya think?

I like to do a little bargain hunting from time to time and I found this discarded Pampered Chef tool caddy that I had the perfect use for.  I ran it through the dishwasher and fancied it up with some scrapbook paper and her she is.  Holding a bunch of my sewing supplies.  Takes up WAY less room on my table, adds a little colors and a lot of organization!

And last but not least my Valentine door hanger.  I'm trying to put a craft group together for fun and to make a little money while my hubby is out of work.  I think this turned out pretty cute!
Hope you enjoy seeing what takes up lots of my time and keeps me sane!

The big reveal!! All I made for Christmas!!

So I'll start with the doll clothes that I made for Lacey.  She got an American Girl doll the day before Thanksgiving that she paid for all by herself.  So she wanted doll everything for Christmas!
Here is a fancy dress with shrug

and doesn't every doll need a zebra skin coat?

and pj pants that match the ones she got for Christmas.

I was called by a family friend about making some doll beds like the ones we did for the girls last year. I was instructed white beds, and green fabric for one and purple for the other.

Here is the green one, I LOVE the green that I found.

Complete with pillows and fitted sheet of course!

And here is the best purple I could find.  There is just not a lot of purple that is cute fabric out there but this I thought would do the trick.

After those were complete it was time to get started on the wood portion of my crafting. This project was made for my mother.  I have this thing about making grandmother gifts for her.  SO this is what she got this year. 

Needless to say I made her cry, again!!

I made a sign similar to this one, I didn't get a photo of the finished product but this gives you the idea.  This was the perfect gift for my brother and his girlfriend because he is TERRIBLE with birthdays so now he has no excuse!

This is similar to what I made for my dad for Christmas.  I didn't get a picture of his either but it's just like this only different lettering.

And last but not least I made these PJ pants for the girls this year.  They had to get a picture with their cups because they were SO excited Santa brought them all one.   So other that the bags I made for the nieces and nephews which I forgot to take pictures of too but as soon as I get them I'll make sure to post them! 

What did you make for someone this Christmas?

I've been crafting, really I have.

I have been REALLY busy with a lot of crafting but most of it is Christmas gifts so I'm not posting them just yet but here are a few things that aren't Christmas gifts that I can post.

Here is a toddler boy owl hat that I made, unfortunately I don't have a little model to wear it but it's definitely going to a good home.

This is a ladybug hat I designed at the request of my 7 year old.  I made it for her friend that was having her birthday.  I couldn't find a pattern for it so I made one up myself.

This is a project that I completed for my cousin.  She is giving this diaper bag to one of her friends.  Hope a couple months isn't too late!
It is large and has great dividers and pockets on the inside.  I would have LOVED this when I carried around a diaper bag but we are WAY past that.  I'm good just making them for people! There are a few things I would change from the original pattern now that I have made one but it's still good!  Well until I can post all my Christmas gifts.  I hope you get all your projects done before Christmas!

A few new things...

So I've seen these owl hats every where so I just had to try my hands out at one of these.  I found a free pattern on Pintrest.

This is the result of the 1st try.  I love it and think it's SO cute but I'm just not loving the ears on it.  So I did a little research on Etsy

And I found one with ears like this one, so this is my second attempt and I have to say I like it much better.  The first one went to my friend who should have her baby girl any day and the 2nd will be for my cousins little boy.  I think it looks like a boy owl don't you?  They are fairly easy and quick to make but they can cost anywhere from $25 to $40.  Wow!  Sure glad I can make them myself!!

you are talking too much />

So I didn't make my goal but here are a few things I've accomplished!!

So last year I went a little crazy buying a bunch of vinyl projects.  Well as I usually do I have great intentions but don't always get the things done I would like to.  Well I sat down to clean up my craft table the other day and instead of cleaning I ended up getting a few projects done that have been sitting on my table and that is the way I cleaned.  I got those things off my table!!

Love the green and pink on this.  I like that it's not your typical colors!

Here is a cute sign that I wanted for my garden.  Well now that it's all dead it's done but it is ready for next year!!

This is a fun double sided project which I love because you can get 2 things out of it which means less to store!

Very easy but cute project!

Then I did these cute coasters!  Not that we use coasters that often but just in case we want to we have them now!

Then there was this ugly clock I purchased at the thrift store last winter.  HH was questioning my judgement when I purchased it but it was like .50 or something and I had a vision.

I think it turned out pretty cool.  Now to just find a spot for it!

And last but not least, my latest project...

My BSU countdown.  For our church Super Saturday we were making a Days till Christmas countdown and I bought it.  Then I started thinking about how I didn't need one because I have my awesome advent calendar that I made a few years back.  As my girlfriend and I were standing in the coupon line at Walmart we saw this awesome BSU wrapping paper and an idea sprouted in my head.  Needless to say the wrapping paper came home with me and this is what I came up with!  My husband LOVES it and I've had LOTS of interest in it!!
So there is some of the fun I've been having in between Dr appts, counseling appts, volunteering at school, church callings and the kids being on break.  I hope to have a few other things before the month is over!  Hope you all have a Happy Thanksgiving spending time with family and friends!!

Plans change

I'm a little bummed because my goal was to post every day this month.  Unfortunately life gets busy.  When you have 4 kids there are lots of things that have to happen and get done and when you have 4 with ADHD and Anxiety there is even more to do.  With PSR and now counseling it is taking up lots of our after school time so of course the craft get put to the way side.  I promise I will get something up this week, I'm hoping it's my wreath but there are no promises!
