Domestic Me

Sorry its been awhile since I've posted... I have had a serious case of writers block. Well, thats not completely true, its more like I have just been feeling very lazy lately. Also I keep forgetting to upload the new pics I have and everyone knows blogs are soo much better with pictures:)

Everyone at work always teases me about being a "Domestic Goddess." Mostly because I am the one who will stay up all night making Olive Penguins for appetizers when other people bring Albertson's cookies to the potluck.
Or I can't wait for my break so I can try the latest Martha Stewart Crafts
Or that people can tell me any stain and I can tell them how to launder it. Seriously, try me on this one!
Or that my dream date is re-doing the yard and redecorating the bedroom.

Anyways, the one thing I don't do is sew. For some reason I just don't. I cook, I bake, I absolutely love to clean, I knit, scrapbook, organize, decorate... but the extent of my sewing consists of replacing a button if it falls off. I just never got that into it. My mom taught me to sew when I was little but there was just never really a need for it... until now!

This year about 595 people I know are having babies. Jerad's sister is even having twins! So I have been googling all things baby. This inspired me to run out and buy a sewing machine. Here are some of my weekend projects:

Ahhhh I am so excited!!!! I went out and bought all sorts of adorable pink fabrics. The bib, and burpcloths, are both from the Homemade by Jill blog. The shoes are Stardust Shoes, and you can find the glove animals on Martha Stewart and the kitty on Wee Wonderfuls.

I know maybe this is a little ambitious but I am hoping to have all of this done over the weekend. After this the next few weekend are going to be so packed I wont have any time. Wish me luck and hopefully I'll have pictures by Sunday!
