Oh Yes! The Others :)

18 Aug

So here’s to all the other things I got done this week that didn’t make it on my – oh this is so cool I have to talk about it on my blog! – posts 🙂

 

I’ve been making my sisters runners for her wedding, she wanted simple white runners! (Ignore all the wrinkles – it needs to be ironed!)

 

For my first time ever doing table runners – I’m pretty darn proud of my sewing 🙂 I had to show it off! It’s making me even thing I should make some placements and table runners for an every day dinner table! (I see more fabric shopping in my future haha)

I got two new burp cloths done! Hip Hip Hooray! It’s been a while since I’ve made these suckers and I actually missed it. Here’s to make about 50 more before October 😉

 

I thought this bug fabric was too cool – I also think I had an obsession with yellow that day..

 

An almost finished taggie! I plan on finishing this off tomorrow 🙂

And another scarf to add to my collection 🙂 This is already posted on Etsy for sale so if you want it – snatch it up while you get a chance! I don’t know if I’ll have another one like this until after October.

P.S. Doesn’t that make you think of Halloween candy? If only I had added an orange stripe section haha!

 

Hooray for getting things done this week! I didn’t realize how much I really got done until now 🙂 Here’s to another week of accomplishments!
Thanks for stopping by.

 

Love Always,

Daily Life: Packing for a child!

8 Aug

For the past couple of trips I’ve taken – I’ve only had to pack for a day trip.. this time it’s an overnight stay with one looong day at a hotel with a pool – which equals 1-toy & pool stuff bag, 1-snacks, cups, easy meals, bottles, diapers, pool diapers, wipes, blanky, pacifier, child size utensils, bibs, table mats, napkins, .. did I forget anything? probably, and then I shoved all of our clothes together in another bag. Holy cow. Three bags and my purse.

One thing I’m doing differently this time is I’m not bringing the pack ‘n’ play. I’m letting a family member borrow it and I got a room with two beds. One for E and one for me. Every time we stay in a hotel E ends up sleeping with us. She HATES the pack ‘n’ play. She’s never liked it and she’s never slept in it without a major fight. Last time it was just me and her in the bed and I put a bunch of pillows around her. This time I’m letting her sleep in her own bed with a million pillows around her. Luckily she’s not a roller – she just squirms around but if she feels the barrier she’ll squirm back in the middle so I’m not worried about her being in her own bed at all.

I guess the shocking part of it all is exactly how much stuff you need to pack when you take a child with you. I can’t imagine packing for more than a week.. might as well just pack her whole room at that point 😉

I’m just glad it’s already done!!

Now back to crocheting 😛

Love Always,
