As part of the decorations we decided we would hang onesies and burp cloths on clothes line around the room. Well, I decided they looked a little plain...
so I appliqued everyone of them with something. I had so much fun with this because I used my Cricut to cut out the fabric. It was awesome, fast and accurate. I ironed them on, sewed buttons on for eyes or deooration and they were done. I got 13 of them done in one afternoon.
Then I used my sewing machine and embroidered the burp cloths along the top and bottom. We wound up draping them over the backs of the chairs.
Well, enough baby shower for today... more tomorrow. Talk to you soon!

Here are pictures of the completed pillowcases, I went back through my shower pictures and I can't believe I didn't take any pictues of the food tables! Oh well maybe one of the other hostesses did. But, here are the completed ones after I finished sewing them up. So cute! We looked everywhere for cute and colorful pillowcases. There were none to be found around here. So for 1 1/8 yard of fabric for each one here's what we got.
Now for some tags.
Yes, I know, more baby tags. I'm almost finished with that baby book then I can move on to some other kind of tag!
Have a great day and I'll talk to you soon.

These napkins were the inspiration for the colors.
These are the fabrics I found to make the pillowcases to match our color scheme. I think I could become addicted to making pillow cases. They were very easy and turned out so cute! If I would have had more time I could have figured out a pattern myself but I found a great Simplicity pattern so I got it, why recreate the wheel? Right!? I made four pillowcases all together. I'll show you the completed ones tomorrow. So until then, have a great day and I'll talk to you soon.

I hope your weekend was great. The conference was every bit as good as we thought it would be. I had a ton of errands to take care of today so I didn't get to work on the Mojo Monday sketch until tonight. But, here it is. I don't know how I'll keep up once school starts again but I'm going to try:) Anyway, here is the actual sketch.
And here is my take on it.
I just had fun with the cute papers from the "Daydream" collection from Close to my heart. The sentiment was from the "Spring" set that came with the "Tickled pink" scrapbooking kit. The cute little bird is from Autumn Leaves "Mindy's Zoo" and I used my CTHM markers and ink pads. This sketch was really fun! Thanks for stopping by to look. I'll talk to you again soon.

Happy Friday. I hope you all had a great week. I've been busy working on projects can't wait to share them. Here are a couple of birthday cards I got completed this week.
These cute little cupcake stamps are from Stampendous and I used liquid glass (CTMH) on the frosting. Doesn't it look chocolaty!? (mmmm) The papers were from my scrap box.
I used more paper scraps on this one, the balloon stamp is from Fiskars and the sentiment from CTMH. Bling from dollar bins at Michael's.
I'm headed to the Beth Moore Conference this weekend. She is an awesome Christian speaker and the praise and worship is always super. Hope your weekend is wonderful and I'll talk to you soon!

During the school year it is my job to make sure every staff member's birthday is recognized. This year I am trying to get ahead of the game by making as many birthday cards during the summer break as I can. Here are couple that I was able to get completed this week. We have several male staff members at our school so I am always trying to come up with cards that are suitably "guyish". These two got my husband's seal of approval.
Talk to you soon!
