If you didn't already know, I am such a fan of Martha Stewart Kids and Martha Stewart Baby magazines. Too bad they stopped making them, :( In one of their Dec. issues I saw some gingerbread men they turned around and made into Reindeer. Clever, very clever! I had to make some.
I refuse to go out. Yep, that’s right I refuse. Have you seen those lines? Have you seen those parking lots? No, thanks! I am staying right here… enjoying things here.
My boy has been asking for some things to go with his R. G. doll, (His name was supposed to be Archie, oh well, it's his doll). I went out and bought this cute fabric that I’ve had my eye on. I began making a quilted sleeping bag. Well, then the doll's arms ripped, both of them! He thought they could be fixed by the time he went to bed. No, no this is going to be surgery! I will have to unstitch his sides and then make new arms to sew in.
Oh, also Merry Christmas and happy eating from our Candy village.

This bag was made from a pattern in the, "Bend the Rules Sewing", book. I made it out of unlined corduroy (so soft) and a small dot print in cotton. I loved the results and had trouble giving it away. The friend I gave it to loves it though, and she is very deserving!

I asked my daughter what she wanted for Christmas. Why was I surprised when she asked for a sewing machine? I know who her mother is, (Ha, Ha). The pink one is from the Home Shopping Network. It has a good price point. I heart the Hello Kitty one. Although, it's price point is not as good. I think the pink one will win.

These are some of the pages made for my Grandparents 60th wedding anniversary. The white one is what I used for the dividers for each family. The blue one is the cover. These photos were corrected in Photoshop Elements! Thank you Deneigh! The simplicity of this reminded me of Deneigh's SB style.

We had a party for my girl this last weekend. We made some of the invitations out of sparkly pink cardstock and some out of white. I printed the info. in the christmas font. I love the christmas font. I can use it all year as long as I print in lowercase. All of the letters are capital for the font, but if you print an actual capital it has a snowflake attached.

This is a bookmark for all of you mothers and mothering women out there. Just print and enjoy! This is based off a talk given in a General Conference from the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. Credit goes to my sister for thinking of this idea.

This cake was put together quickly and my daughter loved it. It was such an easy cake design and since that is not my history with birthday cakes, I was pleased. A few years ago I made this Strawberry cake for her birthday. It did take a lot of time and effort to put together, but it was worth it! Another reason I loved the strawberry cake was because it was my own idea. The purse cake was a Martha Stewart idea.

This is one of my first fast projects. I tend to make things harder and more time consuming than need be and found myself loving that this only took a couple of hours to plan and whip together. I don't remember the book the pattern came out of. When I do I'll let you know.

This is a skirt I made for my daughter in the spring. I made it from the tutorial here...
Then I found another tutorial about making these Japanese flowers called Kanzashi and knew the skirt needed a clip to match it.
