EASTER FUN!

First, there's the outfit for my little Kristen! Yes, I made it with two coordinating cotton Easter prints and a matching knit for the top. I embellished it with the help of my sizzix dies, wonder under and some fabric paint. I won't bore you with the select few things that I did wrong on the outfit but rather focus on it's cuteness factor! Kristen picked some pink glitter mary janes to match. She said she's going to wear them EVERYWHERE and somehow I think that might be true!

Next, there's dinner. Some of the kids disappeared and ate downstairs. Hmmmmm . . . maybe they just fed their food to Daisy?? Then the kids opened baskets from Grammy and Grampa while the guys hid the eggs this year!


This did seam to wear some of us out!
NOW THE REAL FUN! Let's hunt for eggs!! video
Some of us had so much fun, that we never even changed into pj's for bed!

I want to thank Paul & Cindy for hosting Easter at their home. We had a great time!

OOAK ST. PATRICK'S DAY ALTERED CLOTHING

















I JUST FINISHED THIS ONE OF A KIND ALTERED OUTFIT. CAN'T DECIDE IF I WANT TO LIST IT AT ETSY, E-BAY OR MAKE IT MY FIRST AUCTION AT MOMMY AUCTIONS. THE PANTS AND SHIRT ARE NEW, BUT WERE PREWASHED SO I REMOVED THE TAGS AND HAVE BEEN ALTERED/EMBELLISHED TO CREATE THIS GREAT OUTFIT. THE PANTS ARE A SIZE 4 WITH AN ADJUSTABLE WAIST AND THE SHIRT IS AN XS WHICH IS INTENDED FOR SIZE 4/5. THE BEST PART ABOUT IT IS IF IT DOESN'T SELL, KRISTEN COULD WEAR IT!
