Not much going on...

I have been really bad with taking pictures lately... Bella hates to get her picture taken... I just bring out the camera and she begins to cry.  It is kinda funny in a way but not funny enough that I want to take my camera out all the time.
Since I don't have any pictures of them I will share a funny story.  A week ago Sunday we were all home and were finishing up eating breakfast and we could smell that one of the kids had pooped.  So Jason said "Bella, did you poop?" and he looked in her diaper.  So Jack being the helpful boy he is said "Mommy, did you poop?" and pulled at the back of my pajama pants.  We just busted out laughing.

I wanted to post some pictures for Grandmom to see.  I always admired the talent my Grandmother had and still has.  I often wondered how I could not have inherited any of her talent but in the past couple of years I finally struck my creativity and now every time I sit behind the sewing machine or pick up my crochet hook I think of her.  I just wanted to share some of my recent projects with her:
matching hat and diaper cover (more for picture props) for a friend

A Hello Kitty bag for Bella (with an extra big pocket in the front to put her Hello Kitty doll)

Matching mother/daughter tote bags for a friend

a headband for myself (it is reversible)

And finally what I am most excited about.  I bought a book to make a purse and here is my first attempt!

I made a matching zip tote for it but I need to continue to work on putting a zipper in.  I did that without a pattern and it did not come out that great.
So all of this is what I do for my stress relief :)
