Todays sewing project was diaper bags. It seems like I have purchased a million diaper bags over the years and a ton of them were terrible. I decided to see if I could make the worlds best diaper bag and I think I am pretty happy with this one. It has a ton of pockets and places to hide bottles and baby stuff. check it out at
on the home front the hubby is out of town fishing which leaves me even more time to sew. Watch out!
No really life is great and busy, I can;t complain. My family is healthy and happy.
Have a great weekend,

What trouble have I been getting into lately? A ton I am sure. Actually if I haven't been doing school work, cleaning, the house, or doing all my Mommy duties I have been sewing still. I have made 2 sales on etsy so far. I made a purse for myself last weekend and the last few days I have been working on stuff for bday, baby shower, and just because gifts. So here are a few of my favorites
So these are the newest things I have been working on.
Other than sewing and school life has been busy with baseball. The kids are doing great. Garrett's team has lost once and Cody's has lost twice. Cody has been pitching which is awesome to watch.
We have been working on getting Pj ready for school next year. He has been to the doctor and we have filled out all of the papers. He goes for an assessment next week for class placement.
Today is Shawn's bday and we are taking him out to dinner and then a walk around Bass pro shop.
Well I will check in again soon,

Well I have been at it again. Sewing that is! Shawn and I have been thinking of ways for me to help out the family, be a stay at home mom, and finish school all at once. I decided that since ceramics is very hard to do in my garage and really pricey I would sew. I have sewn almost all of my life. My mom used to sew everything for us and it was actually part of her major in college. I took home economics in junior high so I know the basics. What I didn't know is that I am pretty good at looking at something and recreating it without a pattern. I have been looking online, at Target, and other places and putting my favorite ideas together to make new items. So far I have purses, diaper bags, nursing covers (for breastfeeding), camera strap covers, and coffee cup sleeves. I am  hoping that some of the items start selling so I know what to keep sewing and what was a flop. I think today I am going to make a messenger bag and later this week I am going to make a black corduroy purse with cherries on it.
What else has been going on? I started back to school so I am gone Monday and Thursday at night. I am almost half way done with my credentials. Yay! I feel like it is taking forever but at least I am going somewhere.
We went on our annual Easter vacation with the boys. We had a great time for the most part. I had a cold from Friday on so I was a little bummer but the kids swam, played all kinds of games, and played the weekend away. The kids were in the pool for our fun little earthquake so they didn't know what was going on. Here is a pic of easter morning, please excuse Garrett I can't get him to take a normal pic for the life of me.
Well I am off to get to real life,

Spring break baby!!!
So how does a Mom on spring break spend her time? Sewing, that's how.
I purchased a new sewing machine and went to work.I love to sew so I thought that maybe I could make some stuff to sell. So here is what I created this week.

What do ya think?
I posted them on a popular craft site that people sell things on to see how they do. Check them out at 
Have a very Happy Easter everyone and remember why we celebrate, it's not all about eggs and candy.
