Pacifier Clips

I loved that when I was in the store the other day I saw these heart mitten clips on clearance. Gotta love clearance. Normal mitten/suspender clips are never this fun. I cut off the elastic that was attached and sewed up my own little something. Tack a little velcro on the end and you have a versatile binky clip.

Because We HAVE To Have Dresses Now

I LOVE this fabric. Talk about an easy sew! The two on the left are skirts for the Princess and the two on the right are dresses for Spunky...seeing as how Spunky is boycotting pants and skirts and shirts.

Simple Skirt

For those that know me, they know I love rules. Rules make my life easier. HOWEVER, I have one exception to this. Patterns. I loathe patterns. I would rather try and fail than cut and try to read a pattern. I think it stems from my nasty algebra teacher in Junior High. Anyways, I found this fabric a while ago on clearance while perusing a fabric store. The Princess has a sweater in the exact shade of blue. Fate...I think so! So a few measurements later, we have a new skirt.

Valentines for My Girls

I found these darling buckets at Roberts and got them for 50% off, BONUS! I have a super special friend who cuts vinyl. On the other side there are hearts and the word "LOVE".

Taggie Valentine for the Squishy Baby

Keep in mind, it was midnight when I made this, so don't look too close. She isn't quite old enough to get a Valentine like her sisters, so she gets something to snuggle. It really helps that she seems to be a tacticle baby. She has to feel everything.

Valentine's for Teachers

I am dabbling in Photoshop and I LOVE what I can do in that program. Today's assignment was to make a Valentine for my daughter's teachers. It turned out darker than I had wanted. On my computer the papers looked more burgandy, but I love it just the same. Anyone know how to calibrate a printer to match your screen?
