I'm not much for allowing my kids to get into whatever fads are popular at the moment.  But this time I've mellowed and my kids are now part of the Silly Bandz craze.  You know, the shaped rubber bands that kids have lined up to their elbows, schools have banned (of course it's now summer vacation!), and kids love to trade.  The kids of course are not brand specific - they look for all kinds, glow-in-the dark, glitter, princess, baseball, whatever.

So yesterday, at the grocery store, of all places, I found the Phillies logo ones.

Pretty cool - my favorite is the Liberty Bell.  I like the fact that it's state specific.  So now, though I won't wear them except to take them off the floor and hold for a child, I'm obsessed with finding other state specific ones.  Not necessarily sports specific but something along the line of the Liberty Bell, something my kids can learn about.  Hey if, anyone can help me out, and keep in mind I have 4 kids who all collect them, even the 2 1/2, going on 12, collects them, leave me a comment!Pin It

Time flies

Time flies when you're certainly busy.  Good busy, so not really complaining.  I can't believe though that I last posted almost a month ago.

So what have I been up to since?

One big project was a Christening dress for the daughter of friends of ours who surprised me and asked me to make them one.  I was extremely flattered and wanted to make sure it was as adorable as the little girl.  So I used Carla C (the Scientific Seamstress! - we have a lot in common, LOL!) Precious Dress and used the white eyelet material I used for my girls' Easter dresses.

Then I found a free tutorial for a Baby bonnet that I used to make the matching bonnet
Had to borrow my youngest's baby doll to model the bonnet.

The Chritening took place in Maine on Father's Day - June 20th, so I had it mailed out the first week of June to them.  I can't wait for the pictures of the Christening!Pin It

Quick Post!

So, I've taken another break - had a craft show to work on and a few more customs, all of which I'll try and post about in the next few blogs.  But in the meantime, I'm entering a few contests and need to promote them, LOL!  Hey, why not, you don't win anything unless you play, just like the elusive powerball or megamillions jackpots.

This one is for the Rayovac Powers Your Summer Promotion.  Come check it out!
