Hello! Happy 2015! My first post of the new year. I am trying to get back into the swing of things. My oldest went back to school today so I had to get up early to make her breakfast and pack up her lunch. For the past 2 weeks my hubby was packing up his own breakfast and lunch for work since I was still sleeping. It was kind of comical the first couple days since he forgot to take this or that. He wasn't used to having to get his own things ready. Spoiled, right?! It was nice to sleep in for a few days and hang out in my pjs, not do my hair and not worry about pick ups or drop offs. So lovely! But it also makes me feel sluggy and lazy and I didn't do any crafting even though my hubby needed some thank you cards. Ha! I'm on vacation! My boys have another whole week off! It's a long break this school year.
I still have a couple projects from 2014 to share. I sewed up a couple of pillow cases for my daughter's class supervisor and her daughter. I wanted to try to personalize them with their names so I printed their names out and then traced them on to the super strong Heat Bond adhesive plus fabric.
HERE. These are 12x16 inch pillows and mostly decorative. I thought about making a ton of these pillows for the rest of my daughter's teachers! It would be nice to decorate the teachers' offices and use fabric related to the subject they teach.
I want to try some new crafts this year. Hopefully I can get my hands on some of the supplies because it can be expensive. I'll share when I can. My daughter also got some fun nail polish for Xmas and that just brought back lots of memories of when I used to do my own nails in high school and college. Nail art has totally evolved! So amazing some of the things people add or just paint onto nails these days.
Okay, that is it for today. Thanks so much for stopping by!
