Super Hero Cape

Here are the pictures I promised of the cape I made for our daughter for Christmas. Sorry that the pictures are not completely clear but it was quite hard snapping pictures of my little princess chasing after the dog while "flying" in her cape! She makes me laugh everyday! Enjoy!

As most of you have seen I have not posted in a bit. After all the commotion of Christmas (we celebrated 7 times our family is so big) I was not able to come up with anything to write about for a few days. I was so lazy I even went on The Cutest Blog on the Block to get my New Years Layout. I know, I'm bad! I did however, make a New Year layout for my personal blog so you are more than welcome to go check that cute one out. For this blog you will have to settle for a premade layout but I promise to post a tutorial later today and more in the next coming days!

Daddy Away Book

Hey all! I know I made this awhile ago but I wanted to share this photo book that I made for Chris when he came back from Iraq. I thought this would be a great idea for all you military wives to make for your hubby's homecoming. Enjoy!

Yummy Sugar Cookies

Chris had his last football game today with the 5 year old football team that he coaches. Since it was his last game I decided to bake some cookies for the team, so here they are!

Dishtowel Twirly Skirt

This is so cute that I must blog about this today so I am now doing two postings in one day! Woo Hoo! I know I am saying that a lot lately. I am a very cheery person this time of year since Christmas is my favorite holday which reminds me I need to post some Christmas crafts. I'm getting off track.

So I am posting about this adorable blog I Like the Way You Do (fill in the blank). Yes that is the real name of her blog which I love. She has an adorable dishtowel twirly skirt tutorial that I am so excited to try.

I think this is the cutest thing I have ever seen and it can cost you less that 5 dollars! That is always a great thing in my book. I cannot wait to try this out and neither should you! Head on over to Shelly's Blog and check out her Dishtowel Twirly Skirt Tutorial and all the other adorabl things that she does! Enjoy!

Pottery Barn Felt Pillows

Hello ladies! Sorry it has been a few days since I posted anything but the little muchkin has been sick so it has been a little hectic over here. However, while she was laying on the couch I was able to address all 90 of my Christmas cards and I am mailing them tomorrow! Woo Hoo! Sorry mom for rubbing it in your face.

While on this home hiatus I found an awesome new blog called Cupkateer. She does things from crafts to cupcakes (hence the name) and I love everything she does. I wanted to showcase an awesome project that she did based off of the Pottery Barn Felt Pillows. I was so excited about this because this is what my mother-in-law and I do.  We rummage through the Pottery Barn catalog and tag the pages we like. We then go out and find a similar version of what we want and create our own for a fraction of the price. (Check out my Halloween Candle Decor post which we did just that).

Here is the Pottery Barn pillows that sell for 39 dollars

Here is the Cupkateer Version that costs 5 dollars to make

As you can see they are super adorable and cost way less to make! I love this idea and I am going to run out tomorrow and get the supplies to make my own! So if you want you own version of Pottery Barn Felt Pillows for a price normal people can afford that head on over to Cupkateer. I know I will everyday to see the cute projects she comes up with! Enjoy!
