Waiting on Baby Kylie

Glen's Sister is expecting her first child,
Kylie was due on the 14th of this month,
But she is still not here....
Here are a few of the things I've made her
 Burper and Onesie
 My Fav!: Minky blanket
 A Toy BackPack
(I still think it needs something)
 This is a flexable cup with handle
Made for when you are rinsing the child's hair out
So the water doesn't go in the face
 and I put some travel nessisitys in it
 Finished up an order of San Marcos Subway Signs this week
And I FINALLY got my Router the right part it was missing,
and was able to finish up my friend's birthday gifts,
 (though their birthday was in the Spring).

What I've been up to this summer

So I made this dress not to long ago,
my SIL loved it,
(geez thats a goofy face I'm making!)
 So I made her and another SIL this one for their birthdays
(One is extremely late, and the other is extremely early!)
since its what I do,
(which is obsess over something new that I can do)
I, of course, had to make another for The Jo
 I helped my friend Ashley make this cool holder for her ribbon.
It is one 10' section of plastic gutter, cut into 3' sections
I love it and will be doing it in my own laundry room
 I've been pretty busy this summer making Subway signs
here is a new one: Dallas
(Making a Fort Worth one now)
 Of course we have been messing around,
Here is Joise modeling,
its her favorite thing to do when we are in a store
 Spending time with our cousins!
They are finally back in Texas from living in Italy
 They are the cutest!
Josie and Ike love spending time with them
 We celebrated Jo's Birthday
 Went to her first Recital
 She's getting so big!
 Went to see the Space Shuttle!
 Spent a lot of time Cheering on Ike on the Hutto AllStar Team
 and had our first sleepover!
Its been a busy summer so far

Diaper Wreath

Here is the Diaper Wreath I made for my SIL's Ba-BEE shower
Its larger than the ones I've made before
I used a wire frame instead of the Styrofoam form I used on the other ones
 The theme for the shower is Bee
We are having Bar-BEE-Q!
Cute! Huh?
And here are my adorable nephews!
I'm so happy that they are back in Texas for good!
They truely are the cutest 2 year olds ever!

Couple's Subway Signs

Miss Tavia (friend of Miss Ashley) and her hubby,
asked me to make a few signs for a large wall in their house
 They wanted them to be all about the places they have special feelings about:
Fredricksburg, San Marcos, and Austin
 The signs are 5'x2' and made from MDF
The middle one is actually a metallic gold, and maroon
 Fredricksburg: where they got married
 San Marcos: They meet while attending SWT
Austin: They live in ATX now

Aira's Wooden Letter Name

I had a really weird thing happen to me a couple of weeks ago
I was listening to the radio, 
and the DJs were discussing the most popular names of 2012 or 2011
and they were discussing the how the name Aira was on the list.
Apparently, its the name of a character in a popular show I don't watch,
but I thought the name was interesting,
Later that day, 
I had an email question wanting to know if I would make a wooden name for her expected daughter, 
and the name..... AIRA
Coincidence? I think NOT
 The mother wanted something simple, 
with flowers pasted on the letters
 I love how they came out!
And I especially love the ribbon
it was a real find, being all the colors I used on the letters

Birth Announcement Painting

This cute little canvas is a birth announcement to hang in a little one's room
I made a goof up on it,
 can you find it?
(I'm taking this with me this weekend to the Georgetown Poppy Festival)
I don't know any Addisons, 
I just made this announcement up

Subway Art For Sale

Here are my mock up Subway art paintings that I'm taking with me this weekend
I'm going to put them up for sale on Sunday, 
but Saturday they are to inspire people to buy a custom one from me
 This one has everything to do with Austin
 This is one having everything to do with Texas A&M, 
I made sure that every word on there is not word mark trademarked,
cuz I want to sell it
And this one, 
I can't sell, but it is to inspire a gift for maybe a newly married couple
(Glen and I didn't have a fabulous wedding at the beach in Cozumel, but I just tried to imagine what my wedding would have been if I would have been blessed enough to have one.)

Birth Announcement Pillows

Taking this with me this weekend as mock ups
They are Birth Announcement Pillows
 They are just supposed to be decorative, 
maybe something to place on a shelve, 
or in a rocking chair
The kids love them,
 and can't wait till after show, 
to place them in their rooms 
(like they need anything else in those stuffed rooms!)

A Boy's Boy order

This is another order for Miss Ashley.
She told me that the father is the ultimate hunter.
And with a name like Colt, 
I can tell he is going to follow in his dad's footsteps
 I loved this ribbon, form a previous order,
and appliqued the onesie
"This Runt Was Born To Hunt"
Knowing absolutely nothing about hunting,
 except that I see this symbol on the back of hunter's vehicles,
I attached the dear
I think its pretty cute

Dirty Dancing Onesie

So, I love this onesie!
Who doesn't love Dirty Dancing?!
 I goofed up on the last E, but I'll fix that today
Hoping to sell it at show this weekend
if not, I have an In-Law who has called dibbs

Felt Hand Mazes

These were a bit of an experiment
I mean for these to be for toddlers, 
or small kiddos
They are Mazes, 
there is a small bead inside, 
and you are supposed to push the bead around with your fingers
 I made a heart, and a fish
They have a little thing to attach to a key chain, 
or ... IDK!
I just thought the idea was cute, 
and was hoping to sell a few at the show this weekend

Ballerina Girl Shirt

Josie has her first birthday party just for her this morning!
It's for a cute little girl from her dance class
So in keeping with my new obsession,
I appliqued a cute little ballerina onto a shirt for Sophia
 I bought a cute little tutu skirt to match the theme,
 but now I think I should have bought the hot pink one
Oh well, it came out cute enough!

Princess Onesies

This week I tried something new,
Appliques with multiple fabrics,
(I've always shied away from these because I thought they looked like a lot of work, 
but in reality they are quite fun)
And like any new thing that I like to do,
I become obsessed with it!
 I bought these princess designs about a month ago, 
and I'm glad I've finally used them!
 Belle: Tale As Old As Time
 Ariel: Go on and Kiss the Girl
 Cinderella: A dream is a wish your heart makes
 Snow White: Mirror, Mirror, On the Wall
 Rupunzel: Rupunzel, Rupunzel, let down your hair
 And Finally, Aurora: I walked with you once upon a dream
I'm taking them with me to show next weekend,
The Georgetown Poppy Festival
Hopefully I will sell all of them!
Ashley and I are pairing them with some cute tutu bags made to match
