Getting Crafty Again

In a week or so, I will be going to a baby shower for a friend who's having a baby girl in December. I was going to make a wet bag, but she isn't sure if she's going to cloth diaper or not, and even though it would still be useful, I wanted to do something more fun! I picked up some great fabric and fleece at Joanne's during a HUGE sale, and here is what I made:

Shopping Cart/High Chair cover:

The ruffle - this was my first time making a ruffle since I've only made covers for boys so far, it was fairly easy and I'm really pleased with the result!

And the cover reversed (yes, they are reversible!!)

Temporary Hiatus

Excuse the absence and lame posts from me over the past week or so. We moved yesterday, and are still in the process of moving. We are about 1/2way into our new apartment, but do not have internet set up yet and that isn't really on the top of the list for today. Dax is loving the apartment, there is a long hallway that he cruises up and down with a crazed look on his face and giggles the entire time. Nighttime and naps are a different story, he doesn't know the place at all, so he wakes up, even more frequently, screaming himself scared. When I go get him from his crib, he's sitting up, and looks petrified, I hate seeing him so scared. Hopefully this adjustment phase won't last forever.

Jail Break!

Meet Dax, my adorable almost 11 month old son.


See Dax Land where Dax plays.


See Dax get too smart for his own good and climb onto his car in an attempt to escape the confines of Dax Land.

F is for Football

College football to be precise! Fall is my husband's most favorite season, mainly because it means the start of college football again. To say he loves watching college game day, following his favorite team, and participating in college pick'ems with his buddies is an understatement. Lately, he and Dax have been playing lots and lots of football together. Dax is learning how to tackle and catch, he even has conquered spiking a ball. Just watch...

Second Attempt at Crafting

and the results came out much better!! The zipper was a lot easier to sew this time and I was extremely pleased with the results!


Dax has been romping around everywhere these days. He and Derek have been enjoying playing football together, and we have even taught him to do the touchdown sign when we say touchdown!

My Attempt at Craftiness

I made a wetbag for dirty diapers, or wet clothes, or really anything wet! The zipper gave me more problems than I care to remember, and my first bag is going in the trash, it really can't be salvaged. I'm pretty pleased with this, although I'm not so sure it's good enough to give as a gift.
