My new water bottle

When my MIL came for a visit she had a glass water bottle with her.  I asked her about it and she said she has had it for about six months and reuses it.  As some friends know, I love drinking out of glasses, not plastic cups, so this is a good fit.  Well, today my sweet husband picked one up for me.  My mom ended up buying some also.  She now takes her sleek water bottle to Curves.  We enjoy the idea of not adding more plastic water bottles to the landfills.  Another reason my mom and I like this water bottle is the styling of it.  We both love the long cylinder look.

Everyone has one minute

I don't normally recommend books, but this one is good!  This book is more about how to handle people than anything.  This includes husbands and children!  It is a quick read and well worth it.  Everyone should read this book.

Archie and a bag

Do you ever feel badly when you spend time on the computer, thinking to yourself, "I should be doing something more productive."  (If you didn't know, my dad is a huge multi-tasker, and it has rubbed off!)
Well, I have some laundry going and bread rising, so I can now sit down and write.  

Upon finding Archie, my boy came to me and said, "Mom, you really need to sew Archie's arms."  I even posted about how I intended to fix them.  Well, he persisted throughout that day and I finally agreed to sew them that very night.  I also finished the sleeping bag for him.  My girl also sewed a pillow and pillow case for him.  Now my boy is in heaven!  He already took him camping in the front room.

Also, I used the Hobby Lobby fabric to make myself a bag for church.  This was so needed!  If it wasn't I wouldn't have made it because I struggle making anything for myself.  I love having this bag though!

My husband recently had a birthday.  He is in a new office and I thought it would be fun to get him things for his desk.  All of the things seemed ordinary as I was picking them out and then I saw this guy.  
He should add a little personality to the desk!

Handmade things

This is the doll I made for my daughter.  I made her a doll a long time ago and she loved it so much that I decided it was worth spending some time on another.  I am so happy she turned out like I wanted her to!  Her name is Emmeline. 

A pointy kitty made for my boy.
and another doll for my baby.  I made her first and then altered the pattern for Emmeline.
