Happy 2016!

Hello!  Oh, it has been a while since I last posted.  December was busy with lots of Christmas activities and crafting.  Then we went on a vacation and I closed up my Etsy store for a couple weeks.  I have been trying to get back into crafting but feel like I need to recover from vacation!  The only thing I really love about traveling is not having to cook or wash dishes.  That was the best!

Here are some projects I didn't get a chance to blog about.

I made this fabric basket for our cousin's baby.  I was happy that the diapers fit so nicely in this basket!

Also made this little tutu.  I switched out the stuffed animal later since the bear belongs to one of our kids.  Just wanted to see the fit.  This was quick and easy to make.

Oh, I also won some cute prizes from Stacey Yacula Studio!  She designs some amazingly cute stuff!  She has a wide range of products for sale too and an Etsy store.

Also won this super cute penguin and was so excited to share it with my penguin loving daughter.  Did I ever share my finished tree skirt on my blog?  Got to use it for the first time this past Christmas. 

I made some simple calendars too for my Etsy store.  I think I only have this maneki neko one left.

I made a simple monkey one too.  I love the adorable little orange/tangerine.

Okay, I am working on something but it's taking me so much longer than I had originally thought and it's driving me a little crazy.  But I don't want to just toss it on the side and move on.  Ugh.  I've been crocheting a little more too ever since I made my daughter a scarf for the trip.  Crocheting is pretty relaxing and I only crochet when I'm waiting in the car for my kids so it takes me a while to finish.  I'm working on another scarf and not sure what I'm gonna do with it yet since it's not like I need one living in Hawaii. 

On a side note, it was cold on our trip and I wore gloves every day.  But it made me wonder about fingerless gloves!  My fingers were so cold and didn't really understand why anyone would want to expose their fingers! 

Thanks for stopping by!

Cute diaper basket and tutu! And cute prizes! Don't make me look at more cute stuff! Nice calendars too! Yeah, seems a lot colder this year compared to last year! I keep thinking we can donate our cold weather things but years like this, I'm glad I kept them!
