Table Runners... For Sale!!

I made these table runners last year for my sisters wedding with a Michael Miller Damask print.  They are cotton and measure approximately 13"x83" Since I have no need for 16 adorable table runners :) I have decided to sell them.  I will be selling them individually for $10+shipping or $125+shipping for all 16. (That's a $35 savings for anyone like me who doesn't want to do the math!) I am also willing to sell them in different quanties at a discounted price.  My mom just wants them out of her house! :)

Headband Fun

Despite our best intentions, my sister Shelly and I have only been able to craft a few things while I am here visiting, our kids are fire and ice right now with there being about a 30 second time limit before someone is screaming or crying if they are in the same room.  We think (and hope!) they really do like each other, they just don't want to live together!  Anyway with that said, here's our attempt at crafting... these cute braided headbands are popping up all over the net so here's one of our versions. 

Coffee Cozy Preview

Here's one of the new prints I scored while at Craft Warehouse on my trip home. Lovin' this combo! Now I just have a cross country move and about 200 buttons to sew on before this round of cozies is done! Wish me luck!

I know this is my "crafty blog" but I just couldn't help myself.  I've spent the last adjusting to the new time zone, reconnecting with old friends, and finally tending to sick kids- so needless to say there hasn't been a ton of crafting going on.  On a side note... does this happen to anyone else?! You go to visit somewhere or go on vacation and end up spending a good part of it being sick!? This has happened the last couple times we've come home! Yuck!

But getting back on track... I was just looking at pictures on my MIL's computer and came across this picture.  This is the first time I've seen it and despite the grainy quality, and the fact that I'm not lookin' my greatest I love this picture.  It may be because I have so few of me with both of my kids, especially as infants... the hubby's not much of a picture taker and that whole first 6 months is still a blur!

This is ME, I love being a mom, I'm busier than I've ever been, but in a different sort of way.  I laugh everyday and love *almost* every minute.  I've still got lots of room for improvement, but I can say I am most definitely doing my best.  I love these guys! 

And one more for good measure :)

It's Cozy Time!

Coffee Cozy time that is!  I've got 100+ cozies in the making as we speak, I had to take a short blogging break for my sanity. And I'm SO excited about the new batch.  Since we are home visiting our families I headed out to Craft Warehouse (LOVE this store!) with my mom.  It's designer after designer after designer of cute fabrics! I spent a ridiculous amount of money and I'm already scheming about how to get back for more! One confession I have to make... I really need to branch out from the browns! I really tried to get a variety of fabrics and think I did an ok job, but I still have a huge stack of browns!

So if you haven't gone over to my ETSY shop, go check them out... if everything goes as planned (Micah/Hallie- listen up! That means you're in a really good mood and take a great nap tomorrow!) I'll be adding some more cozies soon soon soon!  And since I spent a ridiculous amount of money- I think I feel a sale coming on, I need to recoup that money fast! (There I go again trying to justify the habbit!) 

So enjoy some eyecandy!!
