Hello Kitty Burp Cloths

I embroidered Charlotte's name on large washcloths and used Hello Kitty flannel for the backing.  I sewed it together with pink bias tape.

Hubby's 15th Anniversary Gift

Today is very special for my husband and I.  It's not just Valentine's Day.  Fifteen years ago we had our first date!  I made this canvas for him to take to work to hang in his office.

My first attempt at hair bows!

Here are my girls with all their Valentine loot!  I made them matching bows!  Hopefully I will get better with time.

Picnic Basket

I made this basket to go with my Summer decorations.  The explosion basket is a tutorial from and the flowers are the daisy quilling set from cuttlebug.  The ants and lady bugs are table cloth weights I found at Hobby Lobby.  I plan to fill it with pics of my girls this Summer!

Kayla's Eiffel Tower

I saw make something like this (but so much better).  The tower is just the unfinished wood from Michael's, painted black and covered with Teresa Collins paper.  I also used her stickers and the swirl is from cricut cart french manor.  The words were just a trinket I had.

Thing 2 Cupcake Holder

I made this with my SCAL and Silhouette.  There is a free font called grinched.  I downloaded it to make all of my shower stuff.  Just so you know, put the blue cotton candy on for the "hair" at the last minute.  The dab of icing to hold it on will melt it.  I didn't get a good pic before this happened.

Baby Shower Invitation

I made these with SCAL on my Silhouette from a coloring page found online.  I used d'vine swirls on the cuttlebug.  As you can see it says "it's a boy".  Our first adoptive Mother changed her mind.  I believe things happen for a reason.  While our family was upset at our loss, we are so lucky to have ended up with baby Charlotte.  She is absolutely perfect.

My little lady bug!

Etsy has all these super cute little crochet "critter" patterns!  I bought a few so here is the first one I made.  There will be many more to come!  How stinkin' cute is my little lady bug?  The pic is a little dark, I took it with my phone.

Crochet hat for super bowl

I crocheted this little hat for her to "girl" up her little boy football outfit.  Flower is from canvas corp.

My First Tutu!

So here is my first attempt at a tutu.  I also sewed the flower bow.  My beautiful girl Charlotte is a wonderful model, don't you think?  Her room is being decorated (pics to come when finished) in Dr. Seuss so I made the tutu to match those colors!

Our Little Blessing

We adopted a little girl!  Her name is Charlotte Alyse.  She was born on Jan 15th.  Our family is so blessed to be able to call this precious little girl our daughter. 

New Addition

It's been awhile since I've posted.  Things have been a little busy around here!  We got a new puppy!  Meet Phoebe:
She is a Cavachon.  We just love her!  She is a handful like most puppies are but she has fit in well with our crazy group!
