See I said I would be back.. Not to sure if any one even reads but hey whatever... I can't believe Christmas is Next week here I am Sitting saying ooo WOW 9 days till xmas not think just next week is Christmas.. I'm kinda losing it OK
Recycle Reuse REDUCE or is is Reduce Reuse Recycle hahaha That's what I call this lil pouch it is made out of a old pair of jeans of Ethan's and the Zipper is also from the SAME pair of Jeans.. IN the top left corner you will see on of my son's drawings. ( HE is 4 turning 5 in January) Well my son doesn't draw much to nothing usually colors and that's about it or scribbles. NOT one for drawing any way not like his mommy. SO when he drew me this pic I had no choice i Loved it and thought it would be adorable on a lil pouch so Off i went hehehe This pouch is extra small it is more like a coin pouch and that is just what my son uses it for I even added his name to it.. HE LOVED IT...

MY kids absolutely love it when I come out of my sewing room with something for them.. MY daughter who is 2 going on 16 thinks all bags I make are for her lol..

Any one who has lil Girls and lil girls who love barbies probley have NAKED Barbie's. Well in my house that's all we HAD. Barbies and Naked ones.. I looked in a couple stores to see if i could possibly just find clothes for these things but of course either they don't have any or there sold out or I'm looking in the wrong places. SO I Decided to make some I down sized on patterns i had drew out others and Finally got some workable clothes that actually dress the barbies and not leave them naked or barely clothed like many of them barbie clothes out there. NEVER IN MY LIFE did I think I would care on the way a barbie was dressed until i had my daughter. Some of them clothes are really kinda how do I say it Skanky. To the right is a pic of two dresses I made For her barbies right now and to the left I shirt ( my first try) and she is also wearing a lovely old fashioned long skirt hahaha

I have made two more and hope to make a dozen or so more for the lil girls I know and for my own daughter.

These look way better on the dolls them selves But sense there put away and My daughter is awake I'm not able to steal one of her barbie to take photos lol.. I made these a lil different I was going for a strapless but the tops kept falling down so I had to put some straps:)


To make:

Materials needed
Embroidery Thread
Left over fabric Shreds or Polyester fluff

Step 1: Cute TWO Tree Shapes out of GREEN FELT ( or any color you would like)
Step 2: Take one piece and Embroider what ever you would like on it to decorate your Tree.
Step 3: Once finished Decorating Get your other piece of tree and stitch around both To make like a lil pillow, Leave open the bottom to stuff.
Step 4: Stuff them I used fabric shreds that where next to me sense i Was to lazy to go get my stuffing. Make sure you don't over stuff or under stuff.
Step 5: Sew the bottom shut.
Step 6: Make a lil loop through the top of the tree to make a lil thing to hang it with :)
It is simple if you ever made anything with felt it should be straight forward.. If any one needs more detailed instructions just send me a comment and I could add photos of the process
Well Thats about it for today I need to get busy cleaning sence christmas is NEXT week hahaha

MY OOOO my 10 more days and the man in the red suit will be coming..20 days and my lil man will be turning the big 5years old.. The kids are soooo Excited for Christmas. I am to I have got all my shopping done and not having any more worries lol.. That is till after Christmas and then I will have to get on the roll for Ethan's Birthday!!!SO i have been busy being bored lol. Well not really ON thursday we ended up going to an xmas party and left the kids behind at the inlaws it was alot of fun to get away for a evening just me and sheldon. Don't get to do that much so it was nice. I have been busy crafting and trying out different things I have photos of some and some I still need to snap... But I will share what I have. I have much to share I have made atleast one thing everyother day.

So I made this Lil Boxy Bag From a tutorial I found on net From Three Bears.. ITS really cute I did change the pattern around and made the bag bigger with a linning in it. I made it for my self lol It took me three trys to get it the way I wanted but the idea is from the tut. I love it and came in handy when we went over night to town I made it big enough to fit my make up, Brush, Comb Purfume bottle and underarm and I seriously could have fit more. I would make some more n but I am now out of zippers lol.. I hate doing zippers but actually got these ones in nice. there is one lil mistake but I won't say what I did sence you can't really see it in the photo.. I really like it And would suggest for any one looking for a lil zipper pouch to try oout that tut. ITs sooo simple a beginner sewer could make it..

In my last post I said Something about something sheldon was making and well HE has finished to of his Deer They to me are awsome i love them he don't think m uch of them calls them ugly. LOL YOu be the judge I think THEy would look wonderfull in are yard this summer in the flower bed and garden. A couple sundays ago are family went out to look for logs to make them and I think It was a great idea of ocurse there where a few complications like alot of snow lost dog and crying kids but we got all the parts and sheldon got them 2gether. We where planning on makingone each for family memebers as gifts butwe ended up buying stuff instead and well sheldon has only finished the two and with it getting so crazy around here not sure if he will get a chance to finish the last two. THe pic of them IS in the basement in sheldons storage/tool room so the photo isn't the greatest.
SO two things down lol THERE IS MORE!!!!!!!

SO on another note with christmas On its way, Come xmas cards and every year I buy and forget to give or forget to buy so this year I Never bought but wanted to give and when I looked to buy I couldn't find any I liked lol SAD I Know I think I was looking in the wrong places. SOoooo I decided to make my own out of my own Drawings, and scrapbook paper. Im not sure if I have ever mentioned it but I draw alot It is My talent I guess you could say I love to draw.. I seriously was drawing when I was only 1 lol .. So here is some snaps of cards I made this year all art work is copy written to me I have hand drawn all the photos on the cards and came up with them lol




So each one of these cards will be topping are gifts and given away.. I think they turned out pretty good.

SoI got to Run I have to clean and take photos of the other stuff I have done for the holiday s and so so so simple Xmas ornament so till next time

Happy Crafting

Well I have been Sick with a cold and well My life is just simply busy and stressfull. Raising a 4 year old (almost 5 year old) and a 2 year old can seriously knock me on my butt sometimes. I love my kids but gosh I seriously clean and scrubb the house down turn around and BAMMM the house is turned upside down again lol. LIfe of being a mom. I love my kids but hey HOW DO YOU GET THEM TO LISTEN?? There is a question I need to get answered How do you get a 2 year old who thinks she is 16 to listen? How do you get a almost 5 year old to stop talking back?

(my beutifull Orchid my Hubby Got me------->)

HAHA who knows if any of you have suggestions please tell!!!! THe other day Kiera my lovely 2 1/2 year old was sitting at the table coloring away well I Was doing the dishes. Well not sure how this came up but anyway. She dropped a crayon and said " for F!@# sakes" I couldn't belive it. I Just told her it was a bad word and not to say it. Thank god she hasn't said it again. It is time for this mommy to really start watching her mouth when these lil ears are around.. I have but some days things sneak out.. lol
So I have been busy in away I have started making bags again and have really liked the out come I messed around with my old pattern and came up with these PIctured above.. I have made three so far and have hand Embroidered them myself and I will say my hands are sore its been along time sence i did any embroidering. When I was little I did try to cross stitch or whatever they call it but was to impatient. The one on the bottom was the first one I did. THere is no Interfacing in it and the hadles are to short so out came purse number 2.. Then three.. Number three I made for my Daughter " Princess Kiera" It is by far my Favorite out of the three and im going to try to make a couple more with writing on them. I want to make one for my littlests sister Sienna For christmas. THis one " kieras" is put away she will be getting it for xmas aswell.

BUt any way I hear the kids making a mess. My upstairs probley now looks like a tornado went through So till next time.. Here's some random pics O f what I have been doing

Happy Crafting

Reji and Roxy.... Bored

Man alive it is still snowing. We seriously got a foot of snow and it is still coming down. The kids are absolutly in there glory haha May be getting the snow mobile out tomorrow. There is enough snw now. So yesterday we ended up putting up the tree im sure we are the first ppl in the world to have are tree up this early but hey " it looks alot like christmas outside" So with the tree up the house was clean I made some Friends for Benny..

Meet Reji

I made him last night I just had to try to make another teddy. I really think I need to come up with a special name for these bears, like I did for the "notty dolly's" I may or I may not im not to sure yet, But i really do think they need there own name. They are still in the process of getting the kinks worked out like, With Reji I decided the legs where to long so I cut them to see if they would look better Shorter, and they did SO meeet ROXY ( the first female). Roxy is Black Fun Fur so it is hard to take photos of her. This one was the only one i could get that she doesn't just look like a pile of furshe was fun to make but a bit of a mess. If you ever worked with Fun fur you would understand the mess it makes when cutting. She has shorter legs than Benny and I think I may have got the pattern down so maybe i can make one Im completly happy with now I messed up a lil on Roxy's nose, the red should be down farther. Eyes maybe a lil higher BUt I will do that next time I may make another Or may try something else.

Benny.. And my new machine

Well I was bored and its snowing I mean Blizzarding, and well I cleaned up my kitchen, did all the dishes. Vacumned, and I thought about what I could make its been so long sence I made a stuffy and I really wanted to start up again I miss them and the purses/Totes. I miss making them I made so many before I got tierd of them lmao. So to get the kids quiet I went and got the tree from in storage put it up. ( never decorated gotta wait for daddy to come home to do that ( I know its kinda early we usually wait till after the 20th)) and I needed something else to do, well we waited. Kiera fell asleep (she isn't feeling that well got a lovely cold)and ethan was watching a show so i desided to try out my newly but used machine i got in August. It was Sheldons grandma's ol machine that she used for all her boys when they where lil. Meaning she used it to mend Sheldon's dads pants.. :) Isn't it a beutie and it works great. Well I didn't know if it even worked that good till today hahahaha and well it works better than my lil min ultra kenmore thats made so much. So I started cuting a new pattern making it up as I went along and well Along came Benny.. ~TO the LEfT and to ThE RiGhT~ NOw aint he sweet. And he is full of mistakes. Well I was getting him together I Sewwed him all up and forgot to put in the ears hahaha So I had to rip apart the whole head and Put them in. Then I forgot to leave and opening to turn him right side out so I just made a slit in his back.. Poor guy.. :( But of course I mended him all up once he was Stuffed. So im thinking we may need a lil gal for Benny to be with I think He is kinda lonely sence most my stuffies are long gone and he is all alone. I may also make him some shorts maybe a shirt. Ethan was thinking he needs a snow hat and Mits and boots lol SO he could play out side. BUt any way I need to run TTYL

So I may have got a lil carried away with these Flowers.... Above There is A whole pile of Flowers I forgot to count lmao I made more last nightand kept adding today So instead of making them in to a ball I stuck a stem on them and desided to have a bouque of fresh cut paper flowers.. ( don't you think this would make a beutifull center piece? May have to start makeing some for my some day wedding lmao)

I also made the vase holding the flowers with matching paper from some of the Flowers. There is no real color code to the flowers I kinda just used a lil of every kind of scrapbook paper I hade. I was at first going to make just a plain white and blue flowers but got tierd of folding the white and blue paper lmao. ( and to think this paper was bought so I could try so different ideas for my some day wedding invites (me and hubby well I should say my B/F have been together for 6 years and ingaged for 5 lmao)) So thats why I say some day wedding. I guess I have wedding on the head, alot of ppl i know are getting married planning weddings etc .... SO no wonder i have it on the brain... Aaa some day but seriously I don't even know where to start planning for something like that and hell don't even know what i would wan't for my wedding. Like where to have it etc... NO CLUE hahaha SO two kids later s till no wedding.. I think its time for are purposal hahaha.. Maybe a bigger diamond lmao.
Any way to the right or above is some left over flowers i made I stuck them in a Vase aint they pretty im so proud of these flowers lol THANK YOU folding trees for this great tut... I iwll say any one can do it it does take awile but the out come is worth it.. I will say though this is not something for lil kids to do maybe teenagers. THERE we go when I want my Kusudama flower Center pieces ill get my sisters to help lol...THey have been recruted....

WOW I actually came Back....

So Flowers flowers and more flowers I ran into this blog yesterday Folding Trees It has so really cool oragami art including the flower above called a Kusudama. I will be adding this blog to my list of favorite blogs sence i lost most of the ones i use to read im in between finding them again and finding new ones aswell. There is so many Talented ppl out there.
To the write you will see the two halfs for the Kusudama Ball. The flowers are quiet amazing but they do take some time. To make a ball you need 12 flowers. To make one flower you need to make 5 pedals lol. SO it took me awile to get to this point to the right. I Was so afraid to glue them together thinking iwas going to distroy all my hard work :( I couldn't get a good picture of the ball together so I will try later and Post it on here. I have some PaperTopiary's that I have made aswell and will add more photos of them later to the left is a sneak peak. MY computer is getting all stupid. ( fingures crossed that I will get high speed soon) Anyway I will try to get back on later to post the rest of the lovely Paper crafts I have done. BUt for now I need to get my butt in gear go get some laundry done Hide the candy my daughter keeps bring to me and start Trying to get this house in order sence yesterday I played with paper all day..

~ Happy Crafting ~


Ps. For the Kusudama Flowers I used Martha stewart Scrapbook paper and Glued them together with hot glue. Aswell as the PaperTopiary's that you will see more photos of later.

PSS. when playing with hot glue watch you fingures

Well I woke up this morning to really a nice site. Living in Northern Canada we have to enjoy this lovely snow I guess, even though it is cold here for the most part. It wasn't warm today by no means and it is calling for snow and more snow for the next couple days. That is not good for me because tomorrow I plan on leaving the kiddos with my MIL and and going to town to a party-lite show and to also close my show that I had. Hubby called about an hour ago to tell me the roads aren't that great so, I hope that by tomorrow they will be because I really need this lil break. So I hope the roads get good fast. But any way I took My camera out this morning and took some pictures of the frost on the trees it was really pretty not as nice as we have had this year. I should have took pics about a week ago they were really nice then.

So on this cold day when the kiddo's are all cramped in the house and tired of mom telling them "maybe tomorrow we can go out side and play" I decided to try to make a table runner when everything was peace full and at rest. Of course after I cleaned up the kitchen sum what. I tried my skills with quilting myself a table runner. It never turned out the greatest and I still need to bind it. Also It is a lil to long and a lil to wide and well I'm not completely pleased with it at all. BUT this is my first ever finished (almost finished) quilting project. So NO matter what I guess I'm a lil proud of it. My grams is a amazing quilter and I would love to do some of the stuff she does, but I'm to lazy lol. I like to start a project and finish the project all in the same day. I have a couple projects im thinking of doing and just need to get to the fabric store or im going to be ordering onlin yet and then I have to wait for it :( So keep watching if any one is watching lol

Another Cat Bed..

Well I guess Breaking out the machine was a good thing. After I posted the last Entry early today I desided I needed to do another bed cuz I really didn't care for the last one sence I Was kinda just doing not meachuring and well just cutting and sewwing ... so I Made another a nd this one turned out way better than my last one I think. I bought a bed for my kitten when I first got him it is practically the exact same as these ones but smaller. So I used that (the bought One) for planning out these ones. I think this one looks way better and not sure if I will make any more because seriously three beds for one kitten should be enough excpecially when he has his own human size bed that is well Mine and hubbies lol.. as you probley can't tell in the photo is that the cat bed is on my bed and the cat is sleeping in his bed on my bed lmao. He wouldn't even wake up when I Was snapping the photos...

I' m thinking now I need to do a little shopping spreee some new fabric and thread.. MAYBE a new sewwing machine ... hmmmmmmmmmmm It's about time maybe I will give hubby that for a suggestion for V-day sence it is coming up!!!

I also Remebered a little teddy bear I made for my son a couple months ago when HE was feeling under the weather. So I guess I have brought out my sewwing machine here and there but just little things. The lil bear to the left was made out the free pattern you can find at Crafty Carnival by Missy . That women is so Talented I just love all her stuff. Im adding more and more links to m y faovrite blogs that I have book marked over a long period that I will be adding. I'm not completly happy the way the bear turned out I think I will have to try this one again. I have no clue where it is now Im sure some where in my sons room lmao. But any ways I now have to run and Finish up supper..

WOW.. Been lazy for tooo long

WOW.... So the last time I even Wrote on here was way back in may 2007. Life has been crazy hahahaha.. To tell you honestly I havent really made much Sewwing much or notta. Im sure not a single soul even reads this now any who but Im going to try to come back and start blogging once again.

Are christmas was Great the kids got completly spoiled of course, It was nice to be around family and gatherings but glad it is all over for another year. Seriously we were home at night but gone everyday.. Really wore us out in the end. I hope everyone else's Christmas was as fun and as eventfull as ares. We also had my son Ethan's 4th Birthday at the beginning of this month. 10 days a fter christmas lol as soon as things get settled we have a party hehe. I can't believe he is 4 allready.

I never really crafted a whole lot lately I started to knit once again and have made a scarf a hat and some baby doll hats for my daughter. (That hat I knitted for my daughter is to the left) I have been thinking of sewwing for along time and actullay bought the new Mc call's Quilting Magazine to try to get me in to the mood.

Back in November my hubby bought me a kitten for are 5year anniversary that was on November 17. When we were going to get him I did make some pillows to put in the lil carrier but I bought a bed.. Yeah I probley could have made one and thats what I told my self then but I was too lazy. So today well I was looking on different classified sites looking for another kitten to go along with my baby Blizzard I decided to try to make a kitty bed. Know all I have to do is talk hubby in to letting me get the kitten I found.
SO I FINALLY BROKE OUT THE SEWWING MACHINE lol ..... Im n ot completly happy with the bed the next one i make I will do alittle differnt so I don't have to have the tin thing I really just stuffed it wrong and left the wrong parts open hahahahaha.. SO in the bed is MY kitten Blizzard. THe next thing to make is some kitty toys lol even though we have some that are bought but homemade is way better .
Well if you just happen accidently pop on her and actually reading this please comment hahahaha. BUt Im going to start to update more and more know I promice I have no clue if I even posted about the dresses I made Last year for my daughter or did I stop updating by then Well any way Im in the midst of looking for a new pattern to make my daughter a new dress so I guess making sure I update this that will happen. Will my house stay as clean as it has been..; Probley not Im crafting again ...
