Let’s see if I can post in my little blog every day this week! I have the week off, it should be doable. I really want to gather more traffic here. I hope my sewing and crafting will inspire others. Inspire them for what? Well, that’s up to you, dear reader.
Today was a sewing adventure to say the least. I didn’t want to spend too much time in my studio. The kids are on break with me and I didn’t want to ignore them all day. We had a leisurely morning. Littlest K has declared any day she can possibly get away with it as PJ day. Middle K followed suit, in his cosy flannel bottoms I made him this weekend (that I still haven’t been able to capture a picture of him in). He’s all too willing to photobomb, but when it’s for real, forget it.
Someday I will post a shot of his jammies. Even if I have to take it in the dark while he’s sleeping.
Meanwhile, I finished the purse I was making for the Hubby’s grandmother. That’s four, count ’em four holiday gifts handmade.
Here is a sneak picture of it. I made it not only as a gift, but as a sample for a tote bag to add to my little Etsy shop. It took a lot longer than anticipated. And of course, I made a big booboo:
I contacted the company and hopefully they will send me a replacement label. The labels are crucial if I want to use their pattern for something I sell. Luckily I had an extra.
Then we finally got out of the house. Went to buy stamps. The boy got to try out the “stamp vending machine” and though it was the coolest thing. Then we went to our locally owned office supply store and all three of us just wandered around in complete awe for about 1/2 an hour. Yep, they are just as enamored with office supplies as I am. Good kids. They left with sketch pads, HB pencils, and soft erasers.
Then we decided to ruin supper…
…and walk around downtown a little bit. The weather started to get really windy and chilly, so we headed home. We may go back tomorrow to get cupcakes!
