I made a hoodie!

Next...I need to find some girly t-shirts, so I can make each of my daughters one! Sienna requested one with a rainbow. Hope I can find a t-shirt with a rainbow on it:) If not, I guess I could paint one! I'm off to the thrift store tomorrow!

I donated. Will you?
You can also help by purchasing something from this Etsy shop. All proceeds go directly to building fresh water wells in Liberia.

Caramel your Microwave!

I just had to share this recipe. It is for super yummy caramel corn made in your microwave. It is so easy to make...and clean-up is easy too!

This caramel corn would make a great gift. Also, it's a great way to use up your paper grocery bags!

Have you heard of this?

We have been doing it for about a month now...and it's kind of fun.
It helps you think out of the box for meals, at least one day a week!

Also, don't for get to vote for your favorite in So You Think You're Crafty!

Oh yeah...and the Joy's Hope Scarf Along starts today!!!

I just added a new painted shirt set to my other etsy shop. This one spells out JOY.
I am going to use them for my Christmas cards this year.
Today I wanted to get some pictures of the shirts on my models.
Unfortunately, I picked the absolute worst time of day to take pictures...too bright...too many shadows...etc...etc.
But, I was determined to work with them!
With the help of some Pioneer Woman Photoshop Actions, I think that they aren't too bad:)
Which one should I use for my Christmas cards???



I think that I like # 4 the best...but not too sure...hmmmm...what do you think?
(P.s. I'm also planning on using part of the lyrics for "Joy to the World" somehow in my cards.)
What do you do for your holiday cards? Do you make them?

How Fun is This?

Joy's Hope is having a scarf along! It starts Monday! She's calling out those who are afraid of their sewing machine...which is definitely me! I hope that I can get more comfortable sewing on mine! I would love to be able to sew clothes for my kids...I think that is my ultimate goal.
Oh, and she says that
"by Thanksgiving,
you will have made eight
handmade gifts for under $20,
learned a beautiful new skill
and conquered a ridiculous fear."
Wow! So much fun!
Check it out!
