painting on pillows!

Hope everyone had a blessed easter!! We had a great one celebrating Jesus!!! I have been busy with redoing some furniture. I have done two end tables and I love how they have turned out. I am hoping to tackle a bench this week! Not a lot of sewing happend this week. What I have done has been combined with painting. I love to paint and wish I was better at it!! Here are a few and a ruffled fun one!

sewing projects

Craft day! I want way more of these! Some friends came over with crafts and we played, the kids was something that needs to happen more for me, its a great way to get more ideas, try new things and just socialize!! Ha ha Jess, I got you in the picture!!

A new pillow that I tried! I found this one from Its called a sprocket pillow.  I have to keep practicing...this one was tricky for me but SEW cute!!

the back! I am very into dick and Jane right now....later I will show you why.

Tulip onesies. I have made a few of these too, and a few orders for them! Gotta love a little extra cash to feed my sewing addiction!!

burp cloth and bib set!

I am working on pillows for my sister, this is one she gets to decide if she wants.  I learned how to sew this flower from I think I sewed 8-10 of these before I liked it. She makes it look so easy!! Turned out pretty cute though! So, there you have it, some more stuff I am monkeying around with.  Hope you all had a great spring break!! Its finally starting to warm up (a little) in Michigan!

antique redo!

My sweet dad and I went antiquing this past saturday and it was so fun. I dont often do that without the kids so I got to dig and really look at all the treasures. Plus time with my dad is priceless, we had a great day. One of the treasures I picked up were these pictures!

All I did was sand the frame, paint it in a soft white and sand the edges again for a cleaner antique look! I love them and love the look! It only cost me 12.00!! Love that!!!
