Geo Board

I recently decided that every birthday in our home should include a homemade gift.  Our little girl's birthday is coming up in December and this geo board will be included in the presents!  I simply cut a 6x6 piece of scrap plywood and modge podged fabric to it, used a glue gun on the ribbon, and pushed/hammered in clear push pins.  Hair bands will create all kinds of shapes and fun!  I used all things I already had bringing in the cost for this project to $0!

Herbs & Spices & Baby Jars, Oh My

For some time now I've longed to have all my spices and herbs in the same type of containers.  I even had a gorgeous milk glass set that I loved, but alas it only had about a dozen bottles to the set and most of the labels were spices that I don't keep on hand.  Along came baby food jars (and a convenient though odd space between my stove and the kitchen cabinets perfect for my "spice cart").
I simply wrote out the labels on construction paper and Mod Podged them onto the lids.  Voila!

I just want to give a shout out to the decade in which I was born.

Bandana Bag

My husband has a huge collection of bandanas that he's acquired over the years and he let me peruse them for use in my new bag. I used the butt of two pairs of jeans for plenty of inside storage space. I love it.

I'm currently working on sewing a cloth diaper with the instructions from this book. I'm not sure if I'm brave enough to use it as a diaper, but they make the best burp cloths.

Birthday Fun

Ok, so the cat's out of the bag for those of you who know when my husband's birthday actually was; you now know how non-recent my posts can be, BUT for the rest of you, we can go on pretending this blog is an up to date report of my favorite things. We recently (eh hem, relative term here) celebrated Jake's birthday along with two of his good friends who also share birthdays around the same time, and significant ones at that (35 is very significant b/c you can run for president). We had a good ole potluck, some marshmellows by the fire and the yummy cake pictured here. I'm excited to see what God is going to do in the next 30 years!

Wet Times

Although potty training is not necessarily one of my favorite things, this picture is. Maybe his pre-reading mind will receive some kind of osmosis from his reading material.

First Pattern

I recently completed my first knitting project following a pattern; a toddler cardigan. I'm pretty pleased with how it turned it out and thankful to my model for so graciously donning a girl's sweater for 30 seconds.
