Chore Chart

I started this chore chart ages ago, but finally finished it up tonight. It's not a traditional chore chart, it's really the things that my kiddo needs to do from getting home from school to bedtime - I get so tired of telling her constantly, but now she can just refer to the chart to remind herself what needs to be done. I used the Chore Chart cartridge for the days of the week and all but one of the icons along the top - the backpack came from Locker Talk. The "to do" is from Alphalicious. I bought an inexpensive poster-size frame at IKEA, just turning over the insert it came with to the white side for the background. I used 1/8 inch crepe tape (found at Office Depot by the white boards) to make the lines. My favorite feature is that you can write on it with dry erase markers to check off each task as it's completed, so no messing with stickers or figuring out some other way to mark each task off.

White Baby Dress with Diaper Cover

This set was made for a scrapbooky friend I don't see very often...but she didn't come to our crop, so by the time I see her again it will be too small for her baby! Oh, well. The diaper cover pattern is from Red Heart, the dress is my design.

Baby dress and headband

This dress was an experiment, almost totally made up - I used a pattern for the yoke, but the rest was my design. I think it turned out pretty good! My sister-in-law loves the pink/brown combination, so this will be for my niece. :)

I've gone a little crazy lately making headbands, but they're so quick and fun to make! I'm hoping to get some posted on Etsy soon, but in the meantime I've had people contacting me on Facebook about buying them so I haven't had time to make any others. These are two I made for someone in California. I especially love how the pink one turned out and will definitely be making another one like it!

Baby Cthulu

This is probably too obscure for most, but my hubby and brother-in-law are fans of HP Lovecraft and the Cthulhu--it's been a recurring theme between the two of them for years in gift-giving. So when I found this pattern, I knew I had to make one for BIL's first baby, due in August. We found out today it's a girl, just in time for me to add the girly touches of pink wings and a bow. :)

Latest Creations

I made an Etsy store ages ago, and recently have decided that maybe I ought to use it. So these are my first two projects, baby girl sweater and headband sets. I'm not quite ready to put them in my store, but hopefully soon! I'm hoping to just make enough to fund my crafting habit. ;)
