The Crafty Fun Continues!

This is just part of the cow I made...the rest of it looked pretty bad so this is all I'm going to show even though it's not done.  I bet you can't tell how many light bulbs are above my head. ha ha ha.

I found another DIY idea on Pinterest, this one was for decorating boring pens...I think mission accomplished...though, it was supposed to be a flower print and now it looks like girly army print. ha.

I made these Mickey earrings for my mom for mother's day since she LOVES everything Disney!  They were super easy and I can't wait to make more!
I added this to Instagram but I'm so proud of it, I wanted to put it on my blog too!  I actually found this pendant on Etsy but it was already sold out.  I decided, you know what?  I can totally make that!  So I did!
So maybe this looks a little odd but I made this from a baby outfit I saw at the store yesterday.  The picture is below...I decided it would make a really cute charm!

Getting My Craft On

I wish I was more talented with the things I'm interested in creating...I guess I just need more practice.  They'll pass for usable or art but still need a little refining to adequately brag about or sell...which is what I truly and honestly wish I could do!!!!!
These are burp rags made with the new sewing machine Jordan and I got from his grandma whom just passed away.  I'm soo thankful we were the luck recipients.  

I've wanted a sewing machine for a while now and it's a purchase I probably wouldn't have made until much later in life.  My sister is having a baby in a couple months so I took it upon myself to make her some burp rags.  I think they turned out pretty cute...just these three took 5 hours!  

They're made with Minky and felt-super soft!!!!  I tried my best to make them all the same size...alas, they came out 3 different sizes.  I blame the Minky.  It's a little...uh...fickle.

This is my Polymer Clay ninja.  I watched a YouTube tutorial and wanted to make one.  The clay is pretty inexpensive and the craft time and effort is very minimal.  I'm proud of him...though my sister said he looked like a bear. :)

This is a Cinnamon Roll pancake I made for general conference breakfast a couple weeks ago.  I'd never made them before and just saw a recipe on Facebook.  They turned out to be delicious and I made them again today per Jordan's request. :)

This is a Spring wreath I made for my sister in law.  I'm proud of it!  I wish more people wanted a wreath made for their house.  I'd gladly spend a couple hours crafting another one. :)

I've Been Reading My Old Posts...

How did ANYONE seriously read anything I wrote?!  It's almost ALWAYS depressing.  It's all, "poor me, I'm single".  Only in hindsight do I see how dumb I sound.  For that, I am truly sorry!  All that has changed since I've been married and teaching 2nd grade.  I don't even know that single sad sister any more!  Honest. She is someone I'm not nor ever want to be again.

On that note, I am the happiest I've ever been in my whole entire life!!!  I may struggle with work almost daily, I may not feel 100% every day, but I am so so happy because of my wonderful husband who always supports me and lifts me up on tough days!  Here's to my better half...yes, I'm getting sappy. :)

We have a new family...So we have a new blog

Since my "C'est la Vie" blog is mainly about me being single, I decided I would make a new blog to talk about married life.  Think is below...Wedding pictures will start it out and maybe some newly married couple stories... :)
