Projects for the weekend

I don't know if anyone has actually read this blog, but regardless, it's a good way for me to keep track of my craft projects. It also is nice to look back and see that I actually do get through some of the projects on my ever growing list, albeit very slowly. We have a very busy weekend planned in our household but I'm hoping to get a chance to get the sewing machine out. I really want to get a chance to try and make a crayon cozy, i'm sure you've seen this kind of thing out there on lots of blogs for a little while. I'm also going to attempt to make an indoor dog bed, kind of like a padded mat. I then intend to train my dog to stay on the mat inside, as she has been made to stay in the laundry or outside since for the past 18 months, since our first little one was born. My final project for this weekend is to decorate one of my baby singlets. I've got a cute design in mind and hope that it translates well in reality.

Hope to post some pictures on Monday of my weekend creations. If anyone is reading this, hope you have a fantastic weekend!

Cupcake Flags

A couple of years ago I made some cute cupcakes for my cousin's Communion. I wanted to decorate them in some way to mark the occasion but I couldn't come up with anything at the time. Then I came up with the idea of making cupcake flags. I've been working on some more recently and they will be on my madeit store in the next few days. I've also got a few designs for the singlets sitting on my table, hope to get onto those at some stage on this long weekend. We're also planning to empty our spare bedroom and paint it and then move both of our girls in there. Lots of work to do!

Goodies for Sale

I have finally uploaded some items onto my madeit store I've got three French Memo Boards and one singlet. My model decided to vomit on the other singlet I had created, so looks like she gets to keep that one, no complaints though. Once I got through the first listing, the rest were easy. Now, I need to get going on some more projects and then get them listed. I've got more singlets, a couple of t-shirts and some indoor dog beds to get started on. I need to do some housework tonight and then I'll get started on some of those projects. Can't wait.

Ok, because I am technically challenged i've (i) scheduled my next post to appear later instead of publish now; and (ii) not managed to put any pictures in my next post and am going to put them in here. I apologies if the formatting is strange, i'm still getting used to using a blog.
