Before I begin, I want to extend a ginormous thank you to Amy of Whisperwood Cottage and Jickie Torres of Cottages & Bungalows for selecting my craft closet as one of the 12 finalists! I was honestly shocked, and don’t really think it will win (not being negative here people, just honest!) , but I am honored to be among such fabulous projects. If you haven’t seem them yet head over to check out the top 12!
Yesterday Emmy and I took a “Mommy & Me” baking class offered by the local rec. department. We had a blast creating different dishes. We were able to take much of it home, and Daddy was lucky enough to choose from leftover pizza, leftover spaghetti, or Emmy’s own baked mac n cheese, or Emmy’s own taco pie for dinner! She was so proud of herself, and when I told her I was going to let her cook for me all the time, she was all for it! 🙂 We even made these healthy muffins (we add chocolate chips) later in the day, too! We make those muffins all the time now because they are healthy and the kids DEVOUR them. They even choose them for dessert over cookies and ice cream sometimes!!! You should try some! Super easy to make.
We ended the day doing a new yoga dvd with our neighbor and her daughter as well, while Sawyer tried to quietly play with his loud monster truck around us…
Anyhow, I should stop boring you and get to a project.
My mom taught me how to sew when I was pregnant with Sawyer…. and I became addicted. I loved it. I sewed all the time when I wasn’t at work. I sewed on the weekends. I sewed in my sleep. I was eating, breathing, living sewing! Then when the second baby came along, she was not a great sleeper, and I had to be careful of sound… but I needed a hobby so I picked up a paintbrush. And the rest, as they say, is history.
Now my kids are older (at the old ages of 5 and 6) and every once in a while I am inspired to sew. So I sew. I just made this heart pillow cover by combining my hobbies- I painted and I sewed it! 🙂
Hop over to The DIY Club to see how I did it!
