I Love JoAnn's!

I had a crazy idea this morning.
I went to JoAnn's to buy some more bow making materials
and came home with this!
The printed fabric was on sale 50% off!
So...the above fabric is what I chose to make a quilt for Ty.
The below fabric is what I chose to make a quilt for McKinley.
I know they don't exactly match but they do have similar colors.
I am excited to make them but I am getting WAY ahead of myself.
I am planning on them being for Christmas.
Way to get a head start right!!!

This is the rest of my purchase. 1/2 yard for hair bows
and 2 - 8 yard spools of organza!

My grand total......$53!
Not bad for 16 yards organza
and 20 1/2 yards of fabric!
I love you JoAnn's!!!

Broken Glasses

Check out these sweet, broken glasses.

I had stayed up too late on night and I was dozing on the couch in the morning.
Kinley comes down crying to tell me she did something bad.
I went up to her room to find these glasses.....broken.
I didn't say much about it cause she already felt bad and knew what she did was wrong.
PLUS......they were still under warranty!! Thanks for that!
So we got them saudered together and ordered both new frames and lenses FOR FREE!
Five days later Ty broke the other side of the glasses.
So Daddy took them to work and saudered that side together.
I know I can't complain. This is the first time they have been broken in 8 months. For being a 3/4 year old with glasses she has done a great job.
Needless to say. McKinley has new glasses and all is fine.

Cutest Kid!

I took the kids to the library a few days ago. I couldn't resist taking a picture of Ty. This kid is so cute! I love him to death! He got this backpack for Christmas, once it was weighed down with books it went clear down to his knees. So cute! And he thought he was so BIG! That's Kinley clear up ahead of him with her cute backpack on too.

Hair Bows!

Check out all my new creations/addictions! Seriously I think about making hair bows all the time! I have decided to sell them if anyone wants some just let me know. I'm charging $3 per bow, $6 per set. The pinwheel bobby pins are $1 per set. I'm not sure if I can get the materials for the last one. It may not be available.
