Busy Busy Busy

Wow it’s been a crazy busy week. Monday involved two house showings, unfortunately no offers, tuesday, met with the financial manager peeps. Wednesday, spent the day with my good friend and her kids. Stink and her BFF Samster played while Livy-love crawled all over the place! I can’t believe she is almost walking and can say a few words! She is such a big girl already! Stink had a BLAST with Samster. She just adores him. While there I walked Carrie through a romper like this one

However, it didn’t turn out so well as my retarded self pinned the romper bottoms on sideways 😦 so we wound up making it a skirt instead. Then I helped her fix the yoke on what is going to be an adorable shirt/pants outfit for Livy-love!
It felt GREAT to be able to teach her some tips and tricks, even if it didn’t turn out perfect. We’ve decided to make this a weekly thing!
At some point this week I plan on attempting a pleated skirt for Stink, but we’ll have to see. I still have to finish up a Newsboy Hat for Michelle and this weekend is Easter o LOTS of family time!

Dress and Success!

I’m not quite done with my first order yet (I am still working on the ruffle shorts.) It’s harder to get a ton done without the assistance of my Mother-in-law. She was so great at watching Stink for me while I worked. I do however have access to my Serger while at home. This is good and bad. Some days it likes me…. some days not so much…. Anyways, even though I’m not completely done with the order Bella’s mom came and picked up what I had already completed. As soon as they got home Bella couldn’t wait to try on her “Fancy Nancy” dress I made her. Her mom reports that she refuses to take it off! GO ME! Here is the “Fancy Bella” in her “Fancy Nancy” dress:

 if you want to know how to make this dress refer to this post where I made Stink one without straps in Tinkerbell.

Fancy Bella!

My First Official “Order”

So several of my friends have noticed the clothes I made for Stink. Two of them loved them so much that they have asked me to make their daughters several outfits each!!! I am so excited about this new opportunity. I am even going to make a little cash out of it too. It doesn’t get much better than getting paid to do something you enjoy. I’m headed up to my in-laws this weekend so that hubby can get the house ready to put on the market. My wonderful mother-in-law is going to watch Stink for me while I sew up a few of the outfits. I think in all there are 6 dresses, 8 pairs of shorts, and 6 shirts. I’m going to be a busy momma for the next few weeks.

I took both moms to Joanne’s Fabrics the other day and helped them to pick out fabric. Both of them got so much for so little due to the massive sales that Joanne’s is having. I can’t wait to get started. I’ll try to remember to take pics as I go.

Here is the first one:

Feast your eyes on all that FABulous FABric! These momma's made out like bandit at Joanne's

She Has No Fear

Me and Stinkerbell

They other day I took Stinkerbell to meet up with the playgroup at a Petting Farm/Zoo. This was the first time I took her without the stroller. I thought she might be scared of the animals since they are bigger than her and well could kill her with one kick. Boy was I wrong! She ran right up to them and tried to grab them. Of course I stopped her and told her “gentle.” I think I was more scared than she was. She loved being able to touch the animals. She giggled and shrieked every time one of them let her touch them. One even nuzzled her head, which she about fell over from excitement and the nuzzling. The only other issue we had for the day was her attempt to eat poop. No worries though. She was deterred and her hand immediately wash! GAG GAG GAG!.

Also while we were there we encountered yet another foul barnyard fowl. As you recall our first incident involved a rooster. Apparently this rooster and duck are long-lost buddies who recently reunited and discussed how they are going to attempt to take over the world by eating the feet of all bipeds. I kid you not this duck had less fear than stinkerbell! By the way it does NOT feel good to have your feet pecked and nipped at by evil fowl.
