Pacifier Clips!!

Did I ever tell you how much I absolutely love pacifier clips? Its great to not have to worry about the baby dropping her binky on the floor and when I need it its always attached to her.
My son has gotten into the habit of stealing the baby's binkys right out of her mouth and then running off with them. I would bet that I have about 20 binkys floating around my house right now but when I need one I can never find any because my little boy likes to hide them.
I have found them in kitchen drawers and cabinets, under my bed, in the trash can, inside toy trucks and anywhere else an almost two year old can reach. He hides them EVERYWHERE! Its really frustrating when you have a tired screaming baby and you can't find a binky. So I have been keeping her binkys clipped to her for most of the day just to keep her big brother from taking off with them.

These were really easy to make and would have only taken me 10 minutes to make but I have kids so it really took me an hour. It has been a little over a month since I've used my sewing machine and it felt good to sit down and sew something, even if it was only for an hour.

I will make a tutorial for these clips and a few others when I get more time. Thanks for reading!

Painting the Kitchen

When we moved into our new house all of the walls were painted the same color. The first room we decided to paint was the in the kitchen. I didn't really want to paint the whole room so we painted an accent wall. 




It still needs more work but it's really nice to add some color to our house.

Big Changes!

The past few months have been crazy for my family. We have added a new member to our little clan. Her name is Alice and she is just adorable! Charlie is just starting to learn body parts and he loves to poke her eyes and say "eye!" I am afraid to leave him in a room alone with her because she may lose an one. Other than poking at her all the time he seems to get along with her very well. He spends a lot of time giving her kisses and patting her stomach while he says "baby".

Another big change for our family is a new house! After 4 1/2 years of marriage my husband and I finally own a house. We have lots of work to do on it but we love having a place that belongs to us.

When we moved into our house, the baby was just two weeks old and adjusting to having two children has taken most of my time. Because things have been so crazy, I haven't really had time to work on any new projects but I will try to get things moving along as soon as I can. In the meantime, here are some other tutorials I've found online that I can't wait to try.
