Projects!

I have been quite a busy bee lately with several projects going on! It has been very therapeutic and fun!

The first project was "Operation Office Relocation" and "Operation Playroom". We moved our office into the "front room" which was basically empty so that we could make the old office a playroom. So far we are loving the new spaces and we are so glad we did it! We still have some decorating and such to do but it is a big task and will take some time. Pics coming soon!

The next project is "Operation Learn to Sew" where I have decided to sew fun burp cloths for new babies! I stole the idea from a friend (Thanks Chelsea!). It is a great first sewing project because it's pretty easy and, lets face it, it doesn't need to be perfect- its for spit up! :) They are nothing too fancy either. Thanks to my sewing partner in crime, Jenny, I have finished a few and it was so fun! I am now looking forward to making many more....if only I had more time! Unfortunatly, Alex does not enjoy watching Mommy sew. Bummer.

Another stolen project idea (Thanks Christy!) is the bag tag. I am having so much fun making these for new babies too! They are pretty easy to make after gathering all the materials. I loved mine and so I thought others might want one too!

My last endeavor is tutoring. I never thought I would be doing this but it came to me, so I felt like it might be a good thing to try. Turns out, I really am enjoying it. I am tutoring one little girl, once a week, for one hour in the evening. Its a nice SMALL job. The pay is good and there isn't too much prep. Travis is enjoying his time with Alex too! Good for all!
