Lucky You...

If you head on over to Camilla's site "Simplify" you could be a lucky winner of a very cute camera strap!


OK you may think it looks funny but i want it. How great would it be to tote your kiddos around the neighborhood in this thing...?

I have a new blog...!

I've been in this crafty mood for about 2 years now and i think it's time i bring it all out in the open and share it with you. So i started a new blog to do just that, her name is

I have my corsage tees on there but will be adding some other new stuff soon. So stay tuned!

I've been crafting....

I followed this tutorial here at hopestudios to make my tees. They were so easy to do, anyone with a needle and thread can do it. If you make any let me know.
When i do my next one i'll make alittle tutorial with a few tips and secrets that i found to make it easier.
And all you need to make this is 2 tees the same color, oldnavy had there basic tee on sale for $3 on the weekend so i stocked up. But targets or walmarts tees would work.

The purple one has been through the wash and dryer (thanks to Brett, who i can't be mad at because i think it looks cuter and it still fits!) But the most important thing is it's still together. I wasn't sure how well the flowers would stay on.

And these girls over here from enchantresses 3 made their own tutorial to make the above tee found at jcrew. I'm going to try the heart tutorial next. I have a vneck tee waiting to have something sewn on it.

This would also be cute! I'm definitely going to be experimenting with all my plain shirts now.

I don't know about you but i'm so into ruffles these days i think i'm going to try to make one of these, the cardi would be so cute. I found this tutorial here to help me.

Happy shirt making!

Grandma's in town!!!!

YAY, we love when Grandma comes to town. I've kept her busy helping me paint my laundry room, Peyton's room and organizing my house. Pictures to come of the finished products!


Peyton loves to cuddle Grandma.

Peyton started his first day of preschool and LOVES it. And this is the before picture of my hair.

And this is the after pic. It seems so short but i love it.

This little turkey got into my favorite pancake powder and dumped it everywhere. (Dad you will have to bring me down another box, i'm down to 1 box.)

Oh ya and the fruit snacks...

A bath was in order after the pancake fiasco.

But who could get mad at this face???? Good thing your cute Brody!

We have been keeping very busy these days playing with friends, swimming, getting our house organized and getting ready for pre-school to start next week. The weather has been SUPER HOT but that doesn't stop us. My kids still ask to play out in the back yard everyday...crazy kids. We have sure had a great summer and don't want it to end. Time flys when your having FUN!!!

This story is proof my kids are growing up....

One morning i came home from a run to find Peyton and Brody making toast all by themselves. They got out the bread, the toaster and the butter (which was way back in the fridge).
Peyton yells to me as i walk in the door "mom we're in here just making toast by are selveses" (apparently this is a word)
I say " where is daddy"
Peyton replys "upstairs, sleeping"
Go figure. They could have burnt the house down and Brett would of had no clue.
I come into the kitchen and they sure did make toast all by themselves, and they buttered it too.
AT least i know they won't starve if i'm not around.

Beautiful job Brody!
It was the biggest hunk of butter, this picture doesn't show how thick it was.
Peyton was sure proud of himself.

I can't believe he is off to pre-school soon. He is growing up so FAST and is so ready to go learn and make new friends.
