I love Mushrooms!



K and Company has this new line out called Berry Sweet and it features Mushrooms, Sock Monkeys, Owls, Whales and Fruit. I'd say it's my favorite line ever! Thank you Kelly for ordering it for the store!
Some time in the next few days I'm going to decide what days in April I can teach a Mai Tei Baby carrier class. It'll have to be during the day though . With Ava still waking 2-3 times a night I'm beat by dinner time and just cannot teach a class in the evening. I already work Saturdays and Sunday's I'd like to spend with my family so that only leaves weekdays for now.

Sick to My Stomach


I think Emily's hat is lost:( it's from this place on Etsy. It was about a week ago I last saw it and weird enough, we also lost a bottle of hers the same day. Even weirder is I never told Jon about the bottle (I didn't want to get beat...he he he. Actually just not worth telling him) and two days ago he asked if I lost a bottle! I said yes we (i say we because Emily had a part in it when she fell asleep and let go of the bottle!) did, why? he said he has been passing a bottle on his way home from work every day for a week! It was next to some construction at the four-way by Washington Square. So yesterday he brought the bottle home. Kind of gross... But anyway, I'm so upset over the hat. It was a favorite and looked so cute on Emily. I'll have to buy another one if it doesn't surface soon. It could very well be in our house though. I've found some of Emily's stuff in the weirdest places! That girl can hide an item like no one else!
If anyone spots this hat on another kid in our area.....I expect you to rip it off their head and scream THIEF! Or ask them if they found it....

Diapers and Wipes





I'm so excited! I have new stuff for the store on Tuesday. They're diaper and wipe holders (for me they hold 1 Emily diaper, 1 Ava Diaper, wipes and a fold up changing pad). They can also hold a change of clothes for a small baby or for whatever you want! My sister's sister-in-law sent me a similar diaper/wipe holder for Ava's birth and I loved it so much I decided I should make some too! The labels are ones I've had forever and don't really like...except I like them on these. They are too long for other items but this is just right.
I'm also super super excited because Jon and i bought a new camera today! It's the Canon Rebel XTI. We wanted the Canon 30d but the PX doesn't sell it and we had Gift Certificates for AAFES so it had to be bought there. Anyway, we discovered on the way home from the PX that it doesn't come with a memory card so we'll be going back tomorrow....

Swatch Portraits



Me and Corinnea had a fun day today making these swatch portraits. The idea came from here and you can see what other people have done here. I'm really happy with how they turned out! Corinnea is supposed to put the pictures she took of these on the store BLOG (now she has to do it!)

Nothing to blog about

I'm sick and not motivated at all so I looked through old folders on my computer for something to blog about. I made these slippers for my nephew Jevin. I think it was about 2001? I'm not sure but they are really cute in person they even had anti-skid material on the bottom (I wish I had scanned these in color). I think this is a Butterick pattern.

New Apron

My new apron for work. This looks kind of boring but I can wear it with any color and it won't clash:) We finally got in that new apron I talked about in a previous post so I'll have to make that one too.

How far will you go?

We had photos done with Uka out at Robinson Barracks Sunday. When we made our appointment a week ago, she told me we were the only ones who had responded to the Spring Time Photo special advertised in the First Choice Magazine. The special was $25 for the sitting fee and 3 prints. Who can beat that? Well, maybe someone can (I really don't know, I haven't researched it) but it's Uka taking photos! She's so good and she loves kids and you have sitting options (the window sill is always my favorite). She told me people complain that Robinson Barracks is too far! From what? From Patch it's 15-20 minutes with no traffic! But, Uka said, people will go to Mannheim or Ramstien for sneakers or a better choice of DVDs or whatever but they won't drive to RB for photos? Huh? The PX has a photographer right now doing photos (a concessionaire) but they are generic. They're...not Uka. They're blah.
Did you notice how shiny Uka made my hair with the lighting???:)

just because it's funny..

How funny is this? Be kind though, it was the 70's and 80's. Some hairstyles were actually "in"...sort of!
My parents brought this for me when they were here last month.
I hadn't seen it in years..
I need to finish it (I'll post a picture when I do finish it) and I think some of these are in the wrong spot.
Where's the picture with my missing eyebrow?
I think it was grade 5...

And here's something crafty! More baby tees for the store.

Yesterday's post



I have a french dog named Fifi.

When she goes number one I call it oui oui

I forgot to post yesterday. I said I would try posting for 30 days straight and I've already missed a day! It was probably because I had nothing to post. So since I have nothing to post for yesterday I decided to show a picture of Emily and Ava's room. It's my most favorite room to take a nap in.

Mini Quilts

I love mini quilts! I was first introduced to them by my first boss at the Goose, 4 years ago (can't believe I've been there that long!) and it was love at first site. Two of the miniatures hanging on my clothes line were made by this manager and the other 3 were made by me. I think I should quit the store just so I can enter the mini contest we're having....

On anther note...look at what my crafty coworkers are making! This is a collaboration between Corinnea and Kelly and I just love em!
