Big Boy Belt

I saw this belt tutorial several months ago and I finally made Jake a belt. I let him pick out the belt material and he loves wearing it.

I Spy Bags

I made the boys some I Spy Bags as stocking stuffers this year. These measure 6 X 6 and I used buttons that the boys picked out at Joanns as the filler items. I told them I was making them a special present and they seemed excited about it. I took pictures of the items and I'm going to print them and attach them to the bag.

Reading Nook

Our little reading nook in the gameroom is coming along. Dan and I made some more flat wall book holders found here. After Dan assembled them last night, I couldn't wait to finish them so I was painting outside by lantern light. I'll be doing one more coat of paint today. I was too excited to wait for them to dry that I had Dan hang them late last night.

Kitchen Curtain

For nine months I had a piece of Amy Butler fabric hanging over my kitchen sink just waiting for me to make it into a curtain. Today I finally did it.

Flat Wall Bookholder

I have been eyeing some bookholders at a certain store for awhile but I just couldn't bring myself to pay the going price for them. I found this tutorial Flat Wall Bookholder of the exact bookholder that I wanted and talked Dan into helping me build it. I'm so happy with how it turned out and the materials only cost us around $6 because we had nails and paint. We are making a few more for the reading nook in our gameroom.
