and week 5 is in!

Terri was the busiest one this week. She made not one but two pairs of PJ's.
I love PJ's what do I love more than PJ's?     PJ DAY!!
yes they are the best days ever!
won't Terri be just a stylin' on her next PJ day!
Truthfully though Terri said she never stays in her jammies all day. I guess they don't have PJ days in Florida.  She doesn't know what she is missing. Does she? It almost seems like a waste to wear such pretty PJ's only at night, nobody gets to see them.
Terri next time you come home, you should have a PJ day with mom and your sisters. You won't regret it they are the best!

Dana made something this week. YEP, she sure did. She needed a card, so she came over and we made one together. This is the first card she ever made. I think she did great.
I'm not sure if she caught the card making bug or not. She was a little overwhelmed choosing and matching the paper (that is the hardest part), and she was only looking in the scrap pile.

Mom got busy and finished up this crochet doily. And how pretty it is.
This is not the only thing mom made this week. She hosted our family craft day this week. It was a good time. She didn't have a plan, but after little brain storming we came up with a Valentine Card.
Marci and Nik have made this project as theirs for this week. And they should because we worked hard.
I am hosting the next family craft day on Wednesday the 10th. If your in the area stop on in. It will be a good time.

I just finished (like a hour ago) up this cookie sheet memo board.
I saw this in Pinterest and pinned it more than a year ago. I was going to make a couple for teacher gifts. I even purchased the cookie sheets, but never got around to it.  It was fun and so easy to make!

Can you guess what we will be making craft day?

Vik was also busy this week, she is trying to "destash" her stash of books, threads and other things she is hoarding. I think she had three PJ days this week. LOL
In between "destashing" she managed to crochet this beautiful doily
those are the best colors
She had it listed in her Etsy Shop and it already sold! Bummer I was waiting for it to go on clearance.
So, if she post something and you like it, you best get it. Because the next time you look it will be gone!

           HUGS to you all!

Week #4 only 48 left

This as been a very fractured week for me to say the least. I didn't think I'd finish any project. But I did! Cut it right down to the wire.
I finally finished up this scarf I started about a month ago.
Doesn't Curt look so happy to be modeling it for me? Believe it or not the boys flipped for the privilege he even did his happy dance when he won. Then he didn't smile for the camera...go figure.

Levi has been busy too making rubber band bracelets.
He has asked me to tell you if anybody wants one just let him know your favorite color and he will make you one.

Marci made this super cute valentine wall sampler.
She is going to make one for each holiday. Easter is next. Can't wait to see it.

Nikki finished the hat she started last week. Good job Nikki
She has the cutest models, don't you think.

Terri has made herself a tote. She is really whipping them out. Each one is as good as the last.
I knew it was for her because of the yellow T's very very nice.

Vikki has finished the table topper we posted in week #2
she has it listed in her Esty shop.     
Vikki has added a clearance section in her Etsy shop as well. Marking some of older item down more than 10%.
So if you have had your eye on one, hop on over and buy it before it's gone.

Good Job everybody! I am looking forward to next weeks projects!

Week #3 projects are in

What do you do with your scrapbook paper scraps? Mine are just tossed in a boxes. I never use anything from the box I only add more to it. It is getting a little out of hand, I can't seem to throw anything little piece away.
This weeks project was to try to organize them. I will admit I was a little overwhelmed, I didn't know where to start. Instead of organizing, I challenged myself to make cards using only scraps. I ended up making a total of 8 card all of them different. 
But only going to post 5 of them.

Nikki is happy to say she finally finished a knitted throw she has been working on forever. I'm not sure how long forever is, but, from the looks of the blanket it was a long time!

Little Avery looks pretty pleased with her mom's project this week, doesn't she.

Okay Vik started this doily on Monday and had finished and sold by Thursday. Wow is all I can say.
It takes me 5 days for come up with 8 cards!

If you like her work you can see more and buy them here in her Esty Shop she also sells threads of all colors. Go ahead and check it out.

Avery went with Gma Marci to her card making class Friday, they didn't make cards this week instead they made these cute little valentine candy bags.

This reminds me I need to get busy and make Valentines for the boys school. I think I need about 20 or 25.  Glad I have a couple of weeks, it will take me that long to figure out what to make.

Last but not least Ashanti made a birthday day card for her friends 13th birthday.
What a great idea, I really like the inside verse.

That looks like that is it for the week.  You all did great

The girls have been busy! Just look and see

Check out the crafty projects for the week of Jan 10-16th

FYI: If you want to get a closer look at any of the projects just click on the picture

Nikki and Vikki both have sent me W.I.P. (work in progress)

This is Nik's when it is finished it will be a beautiful hat.

Here's Vik's W.I.P:
It looks like it is a tablecloth or shaw. Let me know if I'm wrong.
I do know whatever it is it will be beautiful.

Now we have Mom's. She transferred a quote on to a sweatshirt. This was a hard project for her, she hasn't been playing on her computer in a long while. So, she had to relearn everything. As you can see she remembered well..
Hang in there mom it will all come back to you!
good job

Terri has sewn a carry tote for her friend Pam (lucky Pam). I love the colors.
My favorite colors are purple and teal green (just sayin')

As you can see it is completely lined inside with side pockets and all.
does that side pocket have a zipper?
And pockets for pencils..or knitting needles or maybe crochet hooks I LOVE IT

My project this week:
I got out my photos and scrapbooked a few pages. I am so far behind I don't know where to begin.
I just picked out pictures from our last trip. Levi is a super big Packer Fan so as part of his birthday present, in September, we took a 4 day mini vacation to Green Bay WI.  To see the new Packers Hall of Fame, and tour Lambeau Field.

Thanks girls for all your hard work.
I know I am posting early.
If any other projects come in (Marci, Karen, Dana you have until midnight)
I will just up date this post.

Looking forward to next weeks projects!

This weeks projects are in!

Looks like a lot the crafty projects are finished for the week.

Vikki has completed this crochet doily runner.
It is 36"x16", took 4 balls of thread and over 40hrs of hooking.
that's a lot of hookn'

Now for Dana's.
While attending a baby shower today she had the opportunity to create this baby bib.
way to go Dana, and she didn't think she'd get a craft in this week.

I can't wait to see all the crafty things next week - Jan 10-16th.

NOTE: Speaking of next week, I am going to make one big post with all the projects together. I think it will be easier to see all the creativity together. But you can send(via group txt) pictures of your finished craft anytime throughout the week.

Keep on crafting

Two more projects finished!

I am so happy to say Marci and Nikki both have completed their craft projects for the week!
Way to go girls!!
Marci recently started making cards. I've been after her forever to play in paper with mom and I. She has joined Stampin' Up and even purchased herself a Big Shot die cutter. Yippee! She has made some very pretty cards including the one she has completed for this weeks crafty project..
check it out:
Nikki has knitted this pretty blue scarf. I love the pattern! I have recently taught myself to knit, so I know the hours she put into this.

and how about her model. Isn't she a cutie!

My project is finished!

My project for this week was to recover the stools in the craft/playroom.
I could have finished them sooner but as you all know, the end of November I had Carpal Tunnel surgery on my right hand. I still don't have my strength back in that hand, and I think I over used it stapling the fabric on the first stool. 'Cause when I woke up this morning I couldn't bend my fingers and my whole hand swelled up twice it's original size. No worries, it's back to normal now, I just need to remember not to rush the healing.
So anyways, Larry (bless his heart) finished stapling the fabric on the second chair.

Check them out:
The colors are much brighter than shown and match the room so well.
Levi said the room is a little "girlie" for his taste! LOL
I told him the brighter the better, and more bling is better still, his reply had me crack'n up...
he said if it gets any brighter and anymore glitter he would have to wear his sunglasses just to walk in.

Keep on craftin'
