Car Roll-up

I told you these roll-ups are easy and can be used for several different things...this morning I surprised myself and made this car one in just about an hour.  I've got pictures for the tutorial and will post them along with all my other ones from the past week, but my filthy kitchen is calling and since 2 kiddos are sleeping I've got to make the best use of my time!
I did have a little helper through the entire process :)

Pictures and Projects

I've got a handful of projects that I want to show you and even a couple of tutorials too.  I just haven't been good about uploading/downloading the pics from my camera.  So, for now I'll just tell you...
A couple of tutu shirts
A tutu skirt/apron
More crayon and marker rolls
A couple of bags
A super quick and easy baby blanket
and lastly, a couple of pillows.
I promise the pictures and tutorials will be here soon!

Crayon Roll-up


Last night I threw together this crayon roll-up...and am pretty happy with it :)  It turned out to be a quick and simple project...I managed to cut it, pin it, sew it in about an hour...maybe less, I had some interruptions...imagine that!  It holds 16 crayons.  I've got plans to make marker roll-ups too! And, while I'm at it, I think I'll make Alexander one for his colored pencils.  Imagine the organization, color, and fun these will bring :)  Then, we can store all the art (yes, you can make roll-ups for numerous other things as well) roll-ups in this nifty little bag I made yesterday (I even lined it!).

Recap of last week

Not quite sure why I never made the time to post pictures last week...I took several!
First up is John Paul...look at how proud my fiercely independent little dude is of his star:
His independence can be seen here in that he insists on brushing his teeth all by himself (yes, a good thing, but it's also why getting dressed is saved for last ...usually) and that messy face...that's marker, from his hands, because he insists on holding the marker way down on the marker tip and he thinks his hands are a perfectly good canvas to showcase his artistic skills.

My other artist.  He's graduated to teacher :) If he's not playing Legos, pouring over his Lego Star Wars Dictionary then he can be found drawing Star Wars pictures.
Just 13 months old and already such a helper.  She loves to hand me each piece of silverware.  It sure does make the chore of cleaning out the dishwasher more enjoyable.

Light sabers aren't only for boys!


There's something about this cup!  The vanilla cappuccino extra hot skim milk tasted incredible, but then I rinsed the cup out and have been drinking water out of it.  I have been drinking so much more water this way. I think I better get another coffee this week. :)

I did some sewing with Mom this weekend.  Just for fun we made this cute little skirt.   

Last week's crafts

Two out of the three crafts I did last week got the reject vote from the judge in my home.  I like 2 of the 3 and am playing with the one I don't care for to make it something that I do like.  Here are pics of the 3 crafts and I'll let you be the judge.
 Ribbon Ring

 Fabric Coasters (the mod podge on them in this picture is still drying)

 Twine-wrapped frame

Go ahead, leave honest comments, I can take it, I promise :)
