Stuff we’ve made

I wanted to do a post to showcase a few things Brett and I have made. We always like to be working on at least one project at a time and these were our latest creations.

I learned how to make this apron in my sewing class

I also made this ruffled scarf

matching mommy/daughter purse set

and I made this fun pillowcase

Brett made these cool owl rings

and he also made this awesome cell phone stand


We had a lot of fun making these things! We’re working on new projects now so I’ll have to do another post when we get those done. We are willing to make custom orders if anyone is interested. ;)

Christmas 2010

I know, I know…I am a little behind. I have been so excited with baby things that I still haven’t posted about Christmas. But I repent! Here is my Christmas 2010 post.


We had a jolly good time in St. Louis and Kansas City this past Christmas. We spent Christmas day at my house this year and New Year’s at Brett’s house. It was so fun to be with family. Here are a few highlights of the trip:

We were a little early, but we told both families that we were expecting over Christmas break. It was so fun to be able to tell them in person so we could share that sweet moment full of laughs, tears and hugs. We really love being with family and we can’t wait until we see them again!
