I started the plush butterfly yesterday after finding the pattern in my new Amy Butler “Little Stitches” Pattern book. I cut out another butterfly shape and appliqued it onto a lovie size piece of fabric, added some ribbon tags and backed it with super soft minky. I also added a stripe of minky to the butterfly middle. This set is so full of dimension and texture, I just LOVE it!

A couple weeks ago I read a blog (I for the life of me I cannot find it back!) that was oogling the Amy Butler “Little Stitches” Pattern Book (baby items). I already had $50 of rewards at Amazon.com so I looked it up and it looked scrumptious, along with “InStitches” (home decor patterns). It was perfect and they didn’t even cost me anything, (technically yes, but…) ! I have already started the placemats, finished the cloth napkins and am half way done with the apron. I cannot wait to start on the baby things. The caterpillar is to die for!!!

Here is a little bit about me:
I am a SAHM (that is a stay-at-home-mom) to a son. I am married to most amazing man (sorry ladies- I found him first!) We adopted our son from Korea about 10 months ago! He is 19 months old and he is truly a joy and probably one of the cutest kids in the world (right along with yours!). I tutor High School Math students (Before I became a SAHM I was a math teacher).
Watching movies- and than quoting them! Some of my favorite movies are: The Princess Bride, Mr and Mrs Smith, Ocean's 11, Pride and Prejudice
Talking on the phone- I love it... I know I am weird!
Hanging out with my girlfriends -Who doesn't love that?!?!

We are bringing Matthew’s Birthday Treat to School today!! He is super excited too. We made these for about $1 per person and he has 11 kids in his class. Included Sidewalk Chalk from Hobby Lobby and pencil, Play-doh (fake brand), sucker, and treat bags from the Dollar Store. I used my new paper punch for the tags with the kids names on them. I also took along these Gifts in a Jar for the teacher and her helper.
P.S. Using Live Writer again today, It auto posts to Twitter every time I publish something . (BONUS!!) I can also switch between my blog and my husbands with just one click. Oh, and you can pick if you want your picture inline, left wrapped, right text wrapped or center. (way easier than blogger)

I found Windows Live Writer LInk from Fabric Creations and decided to give it a try! It seems pretty easy. I can do way cooler things with pictures. Here is the link to the download for Windows.If you have a Mac check out her site for other programs. Live Writer takes all of your info from your blog like colors and such so there is not much editing to do! I think I am going to like this. When I hyperlink it allows for a check box to open links in a new window LOVE THAT!! That way visitors can click away but not lose where they came from. I experimented with the photos and you can add tilting, watermarks, and entire photo albums. Each picture here has a different outline. I will have to monkey around with it for a while but I think it could be quite fun!! ok, UPDATE:: just posted and had to quickly delete it. When I tilt the pictures on this black background it shows a white square behind it. I don’t know if it can be fixed, but I will try. Thanks Crafty Mamma!

At the church sale, I also got all of these random craft supplies for $2.00! I am sure they will go into my craft supply tote but someday I may really find a good use for them. The prices were too good to pass up!
From the craft show I got a stack of business cards, all with websites, a lot with etsy shops. I cannot wait to check out the local artist and maybe do some shop reviews/spotlight of the local etsians!
I went to the craft show with the intention of buying hairbows for Tressa, but when it came right down to it, I couldn't spent the $6-7 on a set so I passed and I will have another go at it myself. Tressa really needs some brown and black to match her winter clothes. Well, I had a wonderful morning, Grandpa took Matthew so I only have two kids at home. I already made Brownie Icecream Cake this morning to take to friends' house tonight sooo... Now, TO IRONING!!
