what I've been up to lately...

Lots and lots of sewing and this is only a portion of what I have been sewing. Some I have already given away at baby showers and others I have listed on etsy.
Please go check out my etsy shop HERE and tell me what you think!! Thanks - I need all the opinions I can get. I want to make sure it looks ok from a customers view.

More homemade

I found this wonderful website with great ideas to save money by making things yourself. Living Easy. Lisa writes about Recession Buster Tips & Recipes to stretch your $$. This I am all about!!! I really like her ideas and recipes - easy to follow and fun!
I wanted to start with the croutons. Sounded easy enough. It started with this wonderful loaf of sourdough bread from Panera that my parents gave us. What a blessing! Thanks mom & dad!
This is how they looked after taking them out of the oven. Sorry the picture is blurry - having trouble with my camera lately.
It made more than enough for us as you can see in this picture - again sorry for the bad picture.
I made another batch since I had so much bread... but alas they got stale before we used them all. Have you made anything homemade lately?? Check out this site and tell me what you think.

Oh how time flies...

As you can tell we have been missing from the internet world for a while! Going to the zoo, the park, Deanna Rose petting zoo, toddler swimming, weddings, baby showers, boutique to sell some of my crafty stuff (pictures to come soon), the dog park, camping in the backyard(hubby's idea- but fun!!), going to the recording studio with my dad, getting baptised with my hubby(hoping to get pictures soon!), sewing, gardening (getting lots of cucumbers but no tomatoes yet), visiting with my sister and niece and nephew, fixing stuff around the house, checking out lots of library books, visiting with old and new friends, adding dirt to our flower bed and yard (thanks Rebecca and Mat!), cleaning the house and lots of cooking! Since it's summer we have slacked on the home school. I figure I will give him a break and start up in September. But lately little honey has been asking me what everything starts with. He is very curious about his letters! YEAH! I don't know if it is the weather or what, but lately I have had no gumption to get on the computer at all! Not even to scope out deals! Which is sad :( Hoping I will keep up better. I need some encouragement so please leave me comments!!!
