So much going on!

Wow, it is crazy how fast time goes :)  Well lets see I have been able to craft a bit since September but not a ton.  Once we moved my craftroom to the garage it has not left me a lot of chances to get out there because it is detached so it is COLD!  I did bring my sewing machine and Cricut inside to my small desk area in the kitchen.  Yes, I said sewing machine.  I bought it many many years ago and just started using it a couple of months ago.  I am addicted.  I am LOVING creating with it.  I thought I would just do a dump post of some sewing/crafting/anything projects I have done over the last few months :)

I made some simple skirts for the girls, they wore leggings underneath.  I also used some leftover fabric and made a table runner.

I made a double layered Christmas skirt and then used my Cricut to cut out a Christmas tree.  I think my favorite part of this was that the girls LOVED them and my Mady was so proud to tell her teacher that her mom made her outfit for her.  So very sweet.

Teacher gifts:
I am working on some easy teacher gifts this year.  My DD's helped put them together (although I am sure I did most of it :)).  I ordered some little containers from 31 Gifts and put in hot chocolate, disposable cups, marshmallows, candy canes, candy and some chocolate spoons I made.  I love that the girls are old enough to help!  The girls also helped make Rudolph water bottles for their class party.

The boys are doing well but not willing to let me sew them much.  Ryan did let me sew a Thanksgiving patterned pocked on a tshirt of his but that was about it :)

Thanks for stopping by.  Happy crafting!
