Problems Solved....

In an effort to cure myself of my funky-ness, I turned to my sewing machine.
If I make something totally adorable to put Georgia Kate in, I will feel better...
Logical, I know...
So, I made a dress and it is super cute.
But it was also super simple and didn't make me feel better.

 I made a couple of pillows for the chair in her room.
One turned out super cute.
The other got returned to the scrap pile because it is truly hideous... What was I thinking?
My funk was growing deeper...
So, I decided to make "Baby Legs."
A quick search from Google and I hit the jackpot.
But, I didn't have any knee high socks on hand...

Everyday Chaos had a cupcake purse tutorial that I had to try.

Now, to distract the kids while I create magic...
A tub of water, a shower curtain and a countless number of kitchen supplies later...
They were as happy as can be...


And, so was I...

Wow! That is awesome. The cupcake is preciosu and I LOVE the dress! So talented!

Thanks for your sweet comment on my blog. I think it is so cool that your little guy saus "I rock Mama!" Too cute! Ryder thinks he's Travis Barker when he plays the drums. I got his T-Shirt at Gymboree. They're having a sale now (which is the only time I shop there lol). They have an ENTIRE Rock Star line and it is all adorable. I got Lincoln a onsie that has drums on it and it says "Make Some Noise." You should check it out - you'll love it!!
