Monthly Baby Stickers

I don't know what was going on about 9 months ago but I'm glad I wasn't drinking that water!  In the last month there are sooo many people having babies.  I made these as a gift, they are stickers that you put on their shirt and take the monthly photo.  This is just a couple of them, but there are 12 to get through the first year.  The concept was not an original of mine, I saw it over at my cousin Beth's blog.  To create mine I used my Sizzix Eclips for all of the pieces and ran them through the Xyron to make them a sticker.

Joe's birthday

To say Joe loves golf is an understatement.  Until recently the living room was a golf range.  We spent many nights early in our relationship at the driving range!  On nice days I'd hit balls too, but a lot of times I'd park myself at the bar and have a couple of drinks as he popped in and out.  I'm definately a fair weather golfer!!  If the heaters are on at the range it's to cold for me :)

If you haven't figured it out by now, this blog is mostly about my projects so here's another one!  I made a golf cake for Joe's birthday.  The cake was really good, it's a Betty Crocker recipe, layers of banana and chocolate cake with peanut butter frosting!  One of these days (see prior post on no time) I'll brush up on my photography skills!

So many ideas so little time

So many ideas, so little time is my theme lately.  I find more and more that I want to be doing something that I truly enjoy, scrapbooking, making cards, sewing (I think), baking etc.  It's not that I completely hate my job, I am very fortunate but at the same time my passion for it is gone. 

Sometime in the next few week's I'll post about the work on the patio we are doing.  We got new furniture, the shades are on order, I will be making pillows and curtains for the pergola and it will be stained.  All before the end of May!

In the mean time I came across this contest and thought that having new projects to buff up my sewing skills would be perfect!  I've sewed 1 thing so I need all the practice I can get...again, so many ideas, so little time!
