Little Sapling Toys

In one of my many online mommy groups Little Sapling Toys's wooden teethers were recommended and I think they are SO stinkin' cute. I'm so excited about them I'm blogging about them before even having tried them out, haha! Our Junebug is being baptised soon and I've asked his godmother (-to-be) to give him one of their wooden teethers because I love them. The have such a huge variety, too. You've got to check them out!

I love, love, love the remnant bin at JoAnn's. I never go there with out digging through the bins! You can score some seriously awesome fabric for cheap, and if you make a lot of little projects it's perfect. When I was there on Friday I picked up some NFL fleece for just a couple bucks and I got enough to make 2-3 scarves! Hellooooo Christmas presents! Totally going to pick up some more and have that on hand for easy gifts for next year =)

By Request: Tooth Fairy Pillow

So I've been seeing about 3,139,723,186 different projects on Pinterest that I want to try. But of course every time I go to my board to pick a project I get overwhelmed and quit, haha. Then a good friend asked if I had any plans to start making tooth fairy pillows. Well, indeed it was a project on my infinitely long to do list! So it seemed like as good of a place to start as any other.

So, this afternoon I got the little Junebug down for a nap after a hearty lunch (first time having a quesadilla, his little tummy is full!) I decided to see what I could whip up! After browsing Pinterest some more and sketching out exactly what I wanted, I got to work!

Using fabric scraps made this project both quick but economical as well ;) I'm looking forward to being able to knock these out a few at a time and have them as a regular listing in my shop!

Baptismal Outfit

Today my mom and I shopped for Junebug's baptismal outfit. After two stores we headed to JoAnns, which is probably where we should have just started in the first place! After just a minute we found the PERFECT pattern from Burda. It was a new brand for me, and it pleased me to see it was from Germany =) Ah, nostalgia...

Anyways here's what I got:

I won't be making the shirt or the bow tie and I'll be altering the pants a bit (no cuff, a bit longer and maybe wider). I got some lovely linen, which I'm thinking is going to look fantastic! I can't WAIT to see how this turns out!

Plum Pickin'!

A lot of you are probably familiar with the daily deal websites that are available. I've posted about quite a few, in fact. Many of them are geared towards moms and babies and what not. This one..... all. about. crafting. ohhhh yeaaaaah.

They post one deal a day at 7am (MST). It's early, but man is it worth it! You can sign up to receive their notifications, but you still better be quick because things sell out fast!!

Look what I most recently purchased:

oh.em.gee. I cannot WAIT  to add them to my next sewing project! Yay for branding =)

And I have to say their customer service is pretty freaking awesome too! One item they posted, they had said (on their facebook) "teachers are going to love this!" Well, as a teacher I was pretty excited, but also bummed, because I knew that typically things are sold out by the time I get home from school. They responded right away and said to email them when I got home from work. They saved me one and I was able to snag a personalized stamp that I now use in my classroom every. single. day. YES! Love them!
