New Projects!

This last week was so busy. I got home from Idaho Wednesday, and Bryce's family started coming into town Friday. We had his cousins, parents, brothers, and sis in-law all here over Memorial Day weekend. Friday I went to Sea World with cousins Michelle and Ben. We had a blast! Saturday we all went to the beach and I got fried. No worries, that burn is now a beautiful bronze tan. The rest of the weekend consisted of sand volleyball (taking full advantage of the court 2 feet from our patio) bbq's, and lots of quality time. Unfortunately I have no pictures of any of the above events, so maybe I'm lying. Anyway, Austin and Ashtyn are staying till Sunday, so Ashtyn, Dax and I have had lots of fun together while our hubbies are working. Which brings me to...Craft # uno. A while ago Minnie, at "Fat and Sassy" posted some pics of these "Temecula Skirts" she's been making. She teaches sewing classes at Domestic Bliss, and this was a class she was teaching. Well bummer for me, because I've been eyeing these beauties (along with everything else she makes) yet can't attend the classes since I'm 5 hours away. So I told Ashtyn that when she came we needed to make our own. And here's how mine turned out....
Obsessed!
Craft # 2- The finished product of Baileys bedroom wall. We painted the wall, made the silhouettes, and that ginormous B that I'm in love with. It's about 2 feet tall!

Love you skirt - SO Cute - I wish I was skinnier so I could wear cute stuff like that.

The "B" turned out great! I have one just like it sitting in my craft room and have not had time to do anything with it - I saw it at Joanne's and had to get it (It's an awesome letter right!!!) so I love seeeing how your finished one turned out.
