Skirt week

It is skirt week at the blog Crafterhours. I added this skirt I recently made hoping to win something.. Wish me luck!

I made this pencil skirt for a semi-formal dinner party that I'm going to. In the front it has all the normal 'pencil skirt' seams...but in the back I added a bustle.

I will be back to our regular program soon…

I know I have been MIA for way too long. I have been involved in the Music Man that my Church Stake is doing. I have been at rehearsal almost every night, and when I have spare time I am spending it with the kids. The play performance is March 17th – 19th. Once this is over I promise to post a tutorial I have been working on! Talk to you soon.

New Valentine Tradition!!

I have decided to make a new tradition for my family this Valentines! It’s something fun for the kids, and so they fell involved in this somewhat adult holiday!
I found these cute mailboxes at the dollar section of Target. We brought them home..and my 4 year old helped decorate them! I do have to say it’s extremely hard to decorate these for a boy..trying to make them not girly looking was challenging-but it turned out ok!
My goal is to do the ‘14 days of Valentines’. I plan to put little notes, snacks, treats and even little dollar toys etc in each persons mailbox. I don’t want this to be expensive, but fun for the kids! Each day they will have something new in the mailbox and hopefully a tradition they will enjoy!!
One side has our initial so we can remember which mailbox is ours!
and a close up Smile

SO….. I need to run to the store to pick up little things to go inside these mini mailboxes… Any ideas are more than welcome…………… Hope you are all ready for Valentines since TOMORROW is February 1st!!!
Can you believe it?
I know I can’t… but in all honesty I am excited Jan. is over because I am counting down to summer and it can’t get here soon enough!

UPDATE: I just entered so go check out all the fun Valentines craft ideas!!
