Happy Valentine's Day

What a day! Our Valentine's Day started with Evie's first day in the Preschool Church class at church now that she turned 2 and she loved it! Mommy was a bit sad though that her little girl is growing up so fast!
Then after church a quick lunch at home and nap time for Evie and Mommy then dinner and a movie with my hubby while my sister and her roommate came to play with Evie. They watched some VeggieTales, had some dinner and did some painting - they even helped Evie to make her first paint masterpiece which will go in her room (I promise I am going to actually put some nails in the walls to hang pictures soon... really) They said she did really good with the brushes and would keep asking for more of whatever color she wanted - I think it turned out beautifully!
And Joni made one for us as well :) Sorry about pic quality I did it with a flash since it was dark out - the little silver squares are attached and there is a pretty dangle in the "orange" square.

Oooo, I better watch out! Two posts in two days?

what I've been up to

I am a bad blogger... I haven't posted in over a month and I still haven't finished my Pay It Forward gifts (sorry girls) but I am trying to make some minor amends by sharing a few projects that I have done recently. I seriously have not done very much sewing and have hardly been on the computer. The only reason I get to check my email or facebook is because we got new cell phones at the end of December that have internet capability (I love my Samsung Moment!). And I also have been busy keeping up with my daughter who turned 2 yesterday. We had a small party with family today for her with some all natural/raw treats for her since we don't give her sugar or dairy as a practice. I will post more on that in a different entry and include recipes and pictures. For now though I want to say I am sorry :) and I will try to be a better blogger. Oh yeah and I have started learning to knit for the second time... and I am over halfway done with a scarf that I intend to make a matching hat for and a matching set for Evie.

I did a refashion of a size XL Sherwin-Williams tshirt to a size 2T long sleeve so Evie and Daddy had mathcing shirts. She loved it! (even though her expression doesn't say it)

My first freezer stencil tshirt. I did a Colts tshirt for Evie for the Superbowl... I will say the lettering on the back was a pain to peel off since it was so close together. But it turned out pretty good. And you can't really see it from the pics but I used sparkly blue fabric paint so it was really girly :)

And I had gotten a cute 24 month onsie at a garage sale a couple summers ago and since we don't really do onsies anymore I decided it would be better as a shirt so tonight I hacked the bottom off and did a quick hem on the bottom. (I love quick - instant gratification projects like that).
