Hello Everyone!

I thought I'd check in and say hi!  I have done lots of crafty things since I haven't been blogging.  I figured I'd share a little of what I've been doing and check in.

I'm currently working on creating a large craft room in our unfinished basement, and when that's done I may pick up blogging again as I will have lots more room to spread out and have room to film, photograph, etc.  No promises, but I may get back into posting when that finished in a couple months.

So way back for Easter I sewed my daughter a dress and used a machine to do some embroidery on a shirt for my son.  The dress came out SO cute!!!  My daughter was thrilled with it.

I have been volunteering at a rabbit shelter and made tons of things for a fundraiser they had in the spring.  I made signs, spray painted little trophies for prizes, and used my Yudu along with some iron on transfers to make some cute shirts.  Here's just a few photos.  I'm not going to share everything I made cuz it's a little repetitive. 

I decided to sew banners for my kids' birthdays so I don't have to keep making a new one each year.  Lots of work, but nice results.  Well... honestly I thought my daughter's came out nice.  My son's banner doesn't sit very flat on the bottom and I'm pretty irked about it, but it happens.

Here's an outfit I created for my daugher's doll.  It's one of the Our Generation dolls from Target.  She LOVES it and it was SO much more affordable than American Girl.   I LOVED making this outfit.  What a great way to use up fabric left from other projects, and so much faster than sewing "real" clothes since inside details are less important.

Anyways.  Just popping in.  I do still check blogs and Youtube when I can, but I'm not logged in a lot of the time for commenting and such.

So, I'm still doing projects for sure.  I'm really into my sewing lately.  
Right now I am working on a stamp index that is VERY time consuming but will allow me to open a binder to a page of something specific like birthday sentiments and see all the sentiments from various sets that I have.  I have also been stamping the sets on their own pages in alphabetical order, just like I store them so I can browse that way as well. 

Have a wonderful, and very crafty day!
