The Adventures In Sewing/Serging

Ok so we all know I am pretty darn crafty and let's just say Pintrest has inspired me over and over again.  The jury is out if Jerry things this is a good thing or a bad thing (leaning towards good).  So I have decided to continue my efforts into saving money and going green by making:

- Re-usuable Paper Non-Paper Towels
- Re-usuable Snack Bags
- Re-usuable Napkins

With that said I kept seeing You Tube videos on Serging and I decided to get one.  Now I am serging away.  I am in the learning process and I made a roll of Non-Paper towels but I learned some lessons.  I am sure as I keep going they will get better.  

Now I am trying to figure out the best way for me to make a sandwich/snack bag.  I am going to give these away as party favors at Annabelle's 1st birthday party with some gold fish in them.  

I will give you an update once I have this thing down pat.  But I mist say serging looks so much more professional then sewing and the machine trims the fabric as you go, Awesome!

I hope you all had a wonderful Valentine's Day!  Jerry got Annabelle and I a heart pandora charm that one side says Mother and the other side says Daughter and she got her very own bracelet.   I also got a tunnel of love charm.  Jerry is a very thoughtful and great gift giver!

Talk to you soon!

11 Months Old

So I'm a little late ok 9 days late, but hey better late then never.

Annabelle is 11 months old now and has 4 teeth and one ready to come through any day now.  Her hair is long enough to get in pigtails now and let me tell you she is so darn cute.  She is pulling herself up and walking while holding onto things, it won't be long before she is walking.

We finally baby proofed the kitchen and put all the locks on the cabinets because it was becoming impossible to get anything done because she would either open the cabinets or stand and yell from the other room because she wants to be with you.

She is starting to eat more finger foods and she tends to waste the baby food though she still loves her bottle.  Lord help us I hope she starts eating more so when she comes off the bottle it is easy.

I'm started to notice her playing with other kids now and it's so cute.  Here are some pictures from her 11 month mini shoot we did (taking these alone is pretty darn hard these days).

"Ummm excuse me, give me my book back."


Being a model is so hard!

Surprise Baby Shower

This is the quilt I made the Mom to be and the Mom!
Since before Christmas a couple friends and I had been planning a baby shower for a friend who was having a little girl. This was her second child but her first was a boy and we didn't know her then so we wanted to do something nice.

 Today was the day! It started kind of rocky because the Mom to be had the stomach bug the day before and she had txt me and said she couldn't come. I almost cried. So I had to tell her about the shower and asked if she felt ok if she could please come and no one would hug her so she wouldn't get anyone sick. So she was able to make it phewww....
All the food I made
I made the cake and the baby on top

All and all it turned out to be a great day!
