We had six seniors, from our ward at church, graduating this year. We went to a graduation party for all six of them. So I made these cute little notebooks. The notebooks had a built in elastic to keep them close (the black band on each one). I embellished with their names using scrapbooking supplies. I tried to make each one kind of fit their personalities.
Shalysse was our babysitter. So, the boy’s each wrote her a note and drew a picture on the inside cover. They were so excited to give it to her and talked to her for at least 10 minutes at the party. She was so sweet to sit and listen to them. We’ll miss her. :)
I loved how Morgan’s turned out. Originally, it didn’t have the button flower, but it seemed like it was missing something. After I added that one, I wanted to put a flower on all of the girl’s notebooks, but I ran out of time. Aren’t these so cute?

So I was going through old pictures and found these that I took of the nursery, one year ago. A year later, I still love it. Although, I think I might have painted the walls a different color. (The pink was Aaron’s request.) I made just about everything in the room, except the furniture and the bedding.
Proof that Aaron painted the room :)
You can’t really see in the picture, but the tree has green leaves, white flowers, and a little yellow bird. And yes, this is me the day we had the baby and no, that is not a basketball under my shirt…
So, I thought I’d share some past projects (mainly so I can delete pictures from my camera). This was the “grand prize” for our church chili cook-off back in March. I bought the apron for $1 at Michael's. Then, I appliquéd felt chili peppers. The text is just black acrylic paint stamped (yes, stamped) with rubber stamps. I was so proud that I wanted to make one for myself, but I hoped that maybe I might win it…unfortunately not. I guess I will have to make one for myself. Maybe a cute one to protect me from baby goo.

So, while perusing the streets of Ebay, I took a trip down memory lane. I began looking at vintage sheets (they make great/cheap fabric). I stumbled upon this beauty and knew it had to be mine. I had the exact same sheets as a kid. I love it! I immediately bid on it (with only 15 minutes remaining) and won. An impulse purchase, I know, but for less than $3 (with shipping) it can’t be beat! I think I’ll make a quilt for the kids (or myself). I can’t wait for my treasure to arrive…(the pic is from Ebay).
Care Bear sheets (Love these!!!)
E.T. sheets (Wouldn’t this make a cute skirt?)
Cabbage Patch Kids sheets (very tempted on this one, too cute!)
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (Not our picture but we currently have one of the sheets from this set. I think it once belonged to Aaron or else we got it at a garage sale.)
Aren’t they so cool?! Being a child of the 80’s/90’s, I loved seeing these old characters. If I had the money, I’d buy every set, turn them into quilts to share with my kids and someday grandkids. I would just love to have one of these, cuddled up with my child, and say “when I was a kid….” Does that make me old?
