Glass Slipper

Elizabeth's in her princess stage right now... as many of your toddler children are.  Almost EVERYDAY she will go to her room and change her clothes into multiple costumes (we have an armoire full of dresses).

One of her favorite dvd's is the Cinderella dvd (Side note: Have you guys noticed that old school Disney movies are pretty scary?).  It's the only one I let her watch from her our Disney collection.  Yes, I have a Disney collection.  Another story for another day. :)  Anyway.. yesterday she decided to make herself a pair of glass slippers.  She kept asking me for some tape and I didn't know what she was doing until I saw her feet...

At first she made it open toed..


Then she decided to close it off because that's how Cinderella wears it.

Here she is in her barbie costume and glass slippers. :)
Even though the kids drive me crazy sometimes.. they really do make my day by the hilarious things they do!

Pink Dress

Here is one of the many projects I'm always working on.  It was actually very fast!  I used a pattern that I bought years ago but never got around to.  Here is the finished dress... my first completed clothes project. :)  There's supposed to  be ribbon around the waist and flounce but I got lazy...

Elizabeth's dress!

Crazy looking Elizabeth posing

She turned and said, "Take a picture of the back!"

Practicing her ballet

Twirling to show the fullness of the skirt

She's starting to look chubby..
Next project is Auggie's shirts.. hm.. we'll see if I can get that done before Joshua and Sammy's birthday party next weekend... so many crafts, so little time!

Long time no blog

So I haven't blogged in ages.. mainly because of the craziness of life!  But now I'm back and wanting to make friends. :)  Will you be my friend?

Projects I'm working on and will blog about soon:
1) Toddler dress for Elizabeth
2) 90-min shirt for Auggie
3) Looking for a pattern for me.. :)

I'm almost finished with Elizabeth's dress, but I can't find my iron! Just shows how often I actually iron. :)
