I Spy...

a fun little game that will make a great stocking stuffer! I have sewn up these bags and put about 25 items inside. Filled it with rice and you have your own I Spy game.... I gave one to the boys the other night and it is a hit! They LOVE it. Let me know if you want one. I plan on selling them for $8. If you want a custom one....geared towards a certain sport etc...Let me know and I will get you a price. I have a wide variety of fabrics and can work with you to get what you want!

The Good and the Bad

The Good...

Had a great time with three of the kiddos and the husband at the local pumpkin patch on Friday!

The Bad....

Grace had a major blowout that resulted in us leaving early!

The Good...

I am enjoying sewing again. I have all these ideas that I would love to craft and sell.

The Bad...

I don't know where to start (other than etsy)

The Good...

I will have lots of time to work on the crafts and perfecting them!

The Bad....

It is official that the company I had been sewing for is going to close up shop...leaving me with no extra income :o(

That is all right though! I will just have to be creative and it was the best decision for the family! I am thankful for the two years that I have been able to do work for them.

I look forward to what God has in store for me and our family as we move onto this next chapter!

On to my craft ideas!
I had gotten a catalog that had some Quiet Time toys..

The look easy enough to make.
Already made one of them and will debut it on the blog tomorrow.
The boys love the one I already made!

I scream, You Scream

Grace gets your Ice Cream
The first picture is blurry but you get the idea. When the ice cream comes out she comes running.
has to make sure it doesn't escape!
Just like a little birdie!

has been walking for a week a now.

likes to carry things around like a puppy dog!

loves to play with this doll because it says MAMA! but if you touch the hands it cries and so does she! Unfortunately she usually ends up touching the hands.

I have been having a hard time finding a Christmas Gift for Peyton.
He is at a hard age to shop for.
After a conversation with my mom this afternoon, she told me about Alphie.
I had Alphie growing up and LOVED him.
I found the new one on Amazon.
Minor problem, they wanted $34 for him (that was on sale)
Luckily for me I use Swag bucks.
I had just redeemed $10 in Gift Certificates for Amazon from them.
To sweeten the deal, with any Playskool purchase of $30 or more you got a Buzz Lightyear potato head!
I just got Peyton his Christmas gift and stocking gift for $26 after taxes! and free shipping!

this is the alphie from the 80's

Now I just have to figure out what to put in Casey's stocking
and what to get my hubby and then I am done!

Casey's First Day of School

Casey was quite nervous when we got to his class. He asked if I could stay with him! I chose not to :o) He will have two teachers this year. His actual teacher is on maternity leave until next month. He is having a great time and learning lots.
