Who wants a Monster hoodie?

I got a good deal on hoodies this week -- so I'm making monster hoodies! If you want one, (just $10 -- MUCH less than they'll be listed on etsy), then post a comment! (There's nothing posted yet, we just opened the store today!)

One name will be drawn from comments to receive a FREE monster hoodie.

AND, if your birthday is approaching.... well, let me know -- I can make you a birthday present!

more Christmas

Here's some Christmas crafts that didn't get done until mid-January, and I haven't gotten around to posting until now.....

Patchwork couches

Okay, so I found these squint couches, and knew that I had my new couch. Our couches were gifts a bit over a year ago, and are wonderfully comfortable. But the child wear and tear has really taken it's toll. It's time for a new cover.

Chester okayed a patchwork couch on a more muted scale. The fabric will be in earth-tones, and only the sitting-on cushions will be patchwork. All the rest will be solid.

The fabric came from Wally World. They undercharged me (yes, I called and offered to make it right), so I got 24 yards of heavy twill for $25. Thanks God for providing that one!

Haircutting cape

So Zanna has recently taken up haircutting. I promised her a pair of thinning shears for her birthday, but didn't order them in a timely manner. So a few days before the party, I had this idea -- an ugly-tie haircutting cape! It was a blast to make, and turned out pretty okay. It has a velcro closure, and a collar and a tie. The tie makes it heavy. I guess that's the price you pay for stylin'.

Ugly Tie Bag v2.0

(Those are the inside pockets).
I think it turned out pretty nice.
Not good enough to sell, most likely, but pretty nice nonetheless.

Don't know yet who it'll be for.

Micah loves snow

Micah begged and begged to shovel after this last snow. Here he is, in the afternoon. In the morning he shoveled the entire driveway. When he was done with the walk too, I gave him a sucker. He felt so great to be rewarded for playing outside in the snow!

Monster Hoodie Fun

Made Amos a monster hoodie for his birthday. He thought it was "awesome". Yay!
