Auction and Extras...

So I got most of my stuff for the school auction made (can you tell we are the anchors?). Lots of key fobs, some future anchor onsies, (they need future still :) ) some coffee sleeves (they still need buttons). Another birthday sleeve, and new sleeves for kelly and I! :) We've misplaced ours... she asked for a new one and I needed an excuse to make myself another one.
I have 1 of my 4 chair cushions done, The rest are cut out and ready to pin. Hopefully I can show you them in a few weeks all finished and attached to their chairs!

PS. I couldn't load pictures last night and it's still being annoying tonight. I added buttons to all the sleeves. Kelly's and mine need larger buttons but all I could find were some little ones, so they will work for now. I have the rest of the cushions pinned too... we'll see how long it takes to reach that goal. Auction stuff has priority. Last night we hung out with some of our small group friends, and today we had UofL tickets and "family" dinner with some good friends. It was a great way to finish/start our week.

Valentine Catch Up!

I am a slacker :) sorry, a busy slacker. I have been somewhat productive, but between both jobs I haven't had time to craft and blog... so crafting it has been.
These are my valentine candy cane lolly-pops, (made using this tutorial) They broke prior to eating. Oh, well. They were cute for awhile.
This is similar to my sisters valentines with a U of L theme. It was for Britton's Aunt Debbie- we are housesitting for them again and I am so thankful!
These are my standard go to kid valentines- I made them for our class. Butterflies made with hearts and a stick of Big Red gum. They work and are fun!
This is Britton's valentine- it's link from Zelda. I am working on a larger Mario one, (which has been the big project lately.) Sorry this is such a bad picture, my camera battery died for awhile. These are my amazing valentine flowers! I love my husband, he did great this year. I felt like my gift was a little puny, we'll have to work on that. He picked out these flowers and had them assembled, he wanted to get close to my wedding flowers. They were beautiful!
He also got me a Nike + to go with the little ipod. It's a sensor that goes in your shoes and connects to a receiver in my iPod The sensor tracks your run, then sends the data to your iPod. It was on my list and I am hopeing it helps me get more active again.

I don't own the fancy Nike shoes that go with it, so I used a tutorial to make a pocket for my sensor that goes on my shoe laces. It looks a little bulky but it will work fine, and I love that I had fabric that matches my shoes :) I just finished it, so I'll let you know how it works :).

We went to a great pizza place for our valentines dinner. :) You can eat in a car. We ate in the trunk! :) It was fun and the pizza was great!

Happy Valentine's Day!!

I can finally post my sister's valentines. :) I made one key fob for Christmas, so this was just refining what I had learned. Kelly's matches her Birthday clutch and Kristy's is made with duvet scraps. I figured I'd stick with things I thought they'd love. I needed a keychain too, so happy groundhog's day to me. Mine is a fabric Britton bought me on clearance early in the fall. I hadn't used it yet and I really like it.

Their cards are variations on the square/ zig-zag cards I've made, but with hearts. I think they're cute. Happy Valentine's Day!
