Have I introduced you to my new best friend?

Sometimes, when I want to avoid doing all of the other things that I should be doing, I sit on my couch and spend some time with my new best friend - Pinterest.
Have you met?  She is one of those friends you can spend hours with and it seems like minutes.  So many good ideas.  So much good advice.  She knows all of the tricks for cleaning your oven with stuff found in your kitchen.  She has all of the good tips on how to get the best pictures of your kids.  I look forward to the time I can spend combing through all of her knowledge.
Ok. Let's get real.  Pinterest is this amazing site where you create virtual bulletin boards.  Instead of tacking things to them, you pin them.  I have boards for everything.  I have over 800 pins on 27 boards.  I can get to them from my smartphone when I am at Joann Fabrics and want to see what colors I need.  It is so addicting and it makes you feel like you have been crafty and all you have done is sat on the couch.

You need an invite to join.  I am happy to invite anyone who is interested.  But, be warned, you will waste a ton of time on this.  If you have an addictive personality, you may want to stay away.  Seriously, can you handle the cuteness!

Craft Show This Weekend

I will be at the Legacy Christian Craft show this week Saturday, November 5 from 9-3.  I will have a variety of items. None of my signature totes/diaper bags (those will be available for order), but some new things like scavenger hunt kits, eye spy pillows, face clutch purses, paci clips, and other new kids stuff from my new accessories line turtle dove. Swing by and check it out!


I know you are all expecting to see what costumes I made for my kids this year.  Well, I have to admit that I didn't make them anything.  They both opted for ready made costumes this year.  We already had Claire's in the dress up box.  She was a beautiful mermaid.

 Lilly requested the Cha Cha Dancer from the Chasing Fireflies catalog.  However, that costume was over $100!  I was going to make one until I found this at Gymboree for $11!  Who can beat it?  I did make both of their treat bags to match their costumes.

I did make a costume this year.  When Leah asked Jack what he wanted to be for Halloween he said a barn.  We were not sure how he could be a barn, but then he changed his mind to tractor.  Knowing how much he loves the John Deere store, we knew it had to be a green one.  Here is the result.  3 paper boxes, a couple of cup cozies, foam sheets and lots of tape and spray paint turned into one of the cutest tractors I've seen.  Maybe it is the farmer inside that makes it so cute.

 Rumor has it that Leah even let Jack have some candy last night!  Don't tell anyone.
