Jam Face

What is this gunk?


Toast with a LOT of butter.

Because Isabel was only interested in the raspberry jam once she tasted that part of it!

A Clutch For Momma This Time

And another "I love unbleached cotton" post. I have a feeling that there'll be an abundance of those coming, just so you know.

I bought my very own computer (fine, netbook) recently. And I had to make a clutch/case for it because I'm wild like that. And there was this adorable tutorial for a ruffled laptop sleeve....


Second time working with a zipper. It's really not too bad. And working with what I have on hand (and because the line at the fabric store was RI-DI-CU-LOUS!), I used 2 layers of fleece fabric instead of fusible fleece.

To prevent frou-frou overload, the fun print is on the inside.


My stuff fits inside perfectly. And can you say, PINK?!!!

ASUS Netbook, External hard-drive, laptop sleeve

I think you can pretty much bet your bottom dollar that when I finally get a new place, it'll be uber girly!

Diapering Tales

I have a new love affair...Unbleached cotton from IKEA. At $2.99/yd, it's cheap, and I love the "natural-ness" of it.

The bag that I've been using as a diaper bag right now has absolutely no compartmentalization. So my diapers have sort of been swimming around, picking up random bits of crumbs and dirt. Say it with me....EWWWW!

I've been meaning to make a diaper clutch for awhile, but haven't found a (free) tutorial that I liked. Until I perused One Pretty Thing and found this one from Noodlehead

Photobucket Photobucket


Now my bag is nicely organized! (at least, it'll be like that at the beginning of the day)


And almost everything is PINK. Double yay!

Meet My Brother

No, not the human one, this one:


Woot! My new sewing machine! So happy that I have one again! Although I have to admit that I broke a needle just hours into its maiden voyage. Ah well...I never said I was a good sewer.

Artsy Fartsy

Isabel's daycare recently hosted an art show featuring work from the kids...


This is Isabel's masterpiece...


And then after that, there was lunch provided. She was so excited to have me there to sit on a little chair next to her.


I am so glad that I made the effort to go for this because almost all the kids had a parent there. And I hate to think of her sitting alone without anyone by her side.


And just because it's so rare for me to have a picture WITH Isabel, since I'm usually the one behind the camera, here's another one from later that same day...don't we both look so different from the picture above?!!

What happens when we don't take her out for a walk...

She's on her doll stroller, with her baby and her sippy
