william's cute little face.

thursday morning will and i went to katelyn's place for a craft; we made silhouettes of our kids to display as art. i sat in front, looking at each of the children, entertaining them so katelyn could get the right angle for each photo. after that, she did the hard work of changing, shrinking each one, getting it just right for printing. we then cut them out using a razor, traced them onto the paper we wanted and framed 'em. that's it. short and simple.

i love william's, he looks little, yet so grown up. this was a fast and easy project, one that i was happy to start and finish in a day.

temporary sewing room

after unpacking the important boxes for the last couple weeks i just recently made time to put together a sewing area for myself. it's very temporary so the "box" desk is what i used because i had so many sitting around. it gets the job done right?

here is the before.


here it is after. nothing fancy as you can tell, just the necessities.

i put an old thrift store basket to use holding my fabrics.

and carved out a few shelves to store my knitting accessories, decorating books and picture frames not currently in use.

nothing to do with decor

or anything i made, but i'm posting it because i really like it.

i found a cool song last week while looking through itunes. since downloading it i've played it more than a dozen times. because i'm unpacking boxes and won't have anything creative to make for a while i'm sharing this song with you. you'll be surprised by the female singing. i think she sounds pretty good.

tell me what you think, have you heard it before?
