Project Craziness

I would LOVE it if I could spend more time sewing and less time cleaning, doing laundry, cooking and potty training. (Nothing gets done when I sew!) The only time I seem to squeeze it in is when Ava is sleeping or someone is having a baby that I "need" to make something for. Luckily for me, Dustin's Grandma entered us into the Hillsboro Craft fair in September, so that will be my new excuse to sew. Each time I see her, she asks if I'm starting to build up a good collection of things for it and each time I give her a smile and a little panicked giggle and promise to have a ton of stuff! So the answer is obviously no. Each time I make something I think of someone it'd be perfect for. It's just so fun, but I guess I better get crackin if I'm going to make any money.

Here's a couple blurry phone camera pics of things I've made lately. I won't be selling these, but making some very similar for the show.

I will also be trying my hand at some boys tops and possibly some pants. Pretty excited about that. I don't want to leave all those cute little guys out!

So here's to hoping I accomplish what I'm supposed to!

I'm going to need a lot of sewing nights between now and then Maria!

5 years!

(Warning, this blog may be sappy).

It's been five wonderful years (tomorrow 7/8) with this tall guy and I am still so very in love.

He is such an awesome dad. Ava LOVES him and will only let him put her to bed. We are so blessed to have him in our lives!
There are a lot of reasons I love this guy...
to name a few:
-He puts up with his girls rather nicely. :)
-He's a blast to hangout with.
-He's hilarious (just get to know him and you'll see)
-He is the spiritual leader in our home and leaves me with no doubts as to where his heart truly lies (with God).

I could go on and on about how much of a handy man he is, how incredibly hard he works to provide for our family and what a stud athlete he still is even though he thinks he's "lost" it, but I better end with him giving me this adorable kiddo. She's like him in SOOOOO many ways and I love it.

Thanks for the last 5 years Dustin! I am so blessed to have met you and lucky you married me, I love you!
