My baby is gone

I want to cry Bubba Love went to sleep all by himself in his twin "big boy" bed. We will see if he stays in it all night.

Priss's Scotty Dog

I had made a small one of these for something else and Priss fell in love and insisted that it was hers and that if it wasn't that she wanted to know where hers was. So, being the "wonderful" mother that I am I immediately made her one and put it away for Christmas. I can't wait to see her face when she opens up the box to find her "larger" puppy. I must admit this is one of the perks to sewing: when you want something instead of running around town or searching the web for hours you simply make it yourself and most every time it turns out to be exactly what you wanted. I love it and hope that she does to!!!!!!!

Found Them

Bubba loves him some cake, he pitched the biggest fit I have ever seen when
I took it away from him.

Miss Priss posing with Papa and his cake.

She just had to get a finger in it

I love Bubba Love in this hat!!!

I have been having trouble with my picture downloader in that it hides my pictures from me when it takes them of my camera. I found these pics tonight and realized that I had not posted them. These are from the first weekend in Nov. when we went to Nixa for Clint's surprise b'day party. We had bonfires in the backyard and roasted hot dogs and marshmallows every night the kids loved it! I don't have many pictures but a few. I keep on waiting to get the pictures from Katie Day from our shoot. I think the pics are going to be awesome. Well, I hope everyone is well.

New Couch?

This is the only picture I could find of the couch before. I think you get the idea.
This is how it turned out. I LOVE IT!!!!!

Mike and I had been talking about doing something different with our living room furniture but since it is fairly new we did not want to replace it, just change the look of it. JoAnns had all their upholstery fabrics 50% off so I took the opportunity to get the fabric we had picked out and spent the afternoon sewing the new covers. We love how it turned out, it looks so different! Priss kept on trying to get in the pictures silly girl! For $80 we may have new cushions every 6 months or so haha! It is nice to know that if the kids do something crazy to them I can fix them!

Priss's New "Do"

Future model!?!?!?!?!?!?!

I finally decided to give Priss bangs, just a few, but the effect is great. I love them and her hair hasn't been in her eyes since. Good-bye sheep dog!!!!!!

Hallie Kates Blanket

My friend Betsy ask if I would make blankets for her children for gifts. She found HK's
fabric first so I made it today. When I pulled it out of the dryer Mike actually
immediately said "that's beautiful" which means a lot from him. Most of the time I get
something along the lines of "that's nice". I think he really liked it. I was pleased with it if only Betsy will be we will be ok.

Creations By Cricket

This is actually the reverse of the purse. I left the pockets out of the inside so it could be reversible it you wanted.

This large cosmetic bag is what I call the baby bag. It's perfect for 5 or so diapers and a pack of wipes. Then when there are no kids going along you just pull out this bag and you are ready. No more changing from one bag to another.

This bag is perfect for all the baby Tylenol and creams.

The smaller one is great for your lip sticks and glosses.

Here is my latest creation! I have made several now and each one seems to be my favorite I love how each person can pick there own fabrics to reflect there style. Then I customize the little bags however I feel inspired.
