Rick Rack

I hit the jackpot with all the crafting supplies my mom-in-law had sitting around her house that she wasn’t using. Tons of fabric, ribbons, wreaths…

But what do I do with all this rick rack?


I made this shirt for my son for Christmas. Basically a crappy version of this adorable shirt from Brixton Lane. I’m going to make a cuter one for my baby girl as soon as I find some thing to put it on.


Why yes… That is a blob of hot glue you see on there. With a two month old I really don’t have the time or patience to hand sew it on. Besides,  it’s almost too small for him so it was a last ditch effort to get more use out of it.


What do you do with a million yards of rickrack?

Homemade Christmas

WOW… It’s been a long time since I’ve posted. I’ve been busy taking care of Ella and chasing Christopher around.  This year, because most of us are short on funds, we have decided that instead of the family gift exchange we’re going to make gifts. Let me just say… It is a blast! I love actually coming up with things to make for each different person rather than settling on something that I found in the store. This week I have been working on my sister’s gift and my brothers girlfriend’s. I decided on hair bands. I’m totally addicted to making these  fabric flowers they’re all over my house.

I had a old pair of shoes that we’re falling apart and added some flowers and it spruced them up for at least one more night of wear. I wore them to my husband’s company Christmas party.


The headbands I made…

I love them! Too cute…

While at the Christmas party this happened to my little boy at the sitters…


He got bit by their little dog.



Poor little guy. It hurts me to see it.
