The Things Kids Do.....

So one day I am on the phone and walk into the bathroom and this is what I see...So I say, "Hey I gotta let you go. I got two kids and a dog in the tub together!" Who would've thought!
Luckily the others were busy creating with lego.

Beware the Girl With Big Guns!

Combat Kim wearing all of Jordan's new army outfit! Too cute...I mean SAVAGE!

Bridge Building for Science

These were made with KNEX bridge kits we borrowed. I let them design their own, but they had to test for strength.

Last week the temps stayed below freezing so the kids had a blast.

My ETSY shop

Well, I did it! I set up an etsy shop--curretnly nothing for sale, but if you want to pass the word on, the way to get there is www.brandijanecreations.etsy.com . The shop is named Brandi Jane Creations because that was somewhat original and my FIL's nickname for me since age 16! I really had a hard tiome thinking up something, so that's just goi9ng to be it. I have stuff to sew, so check the store for listings. The first items will be tote bags, aprons and possibly some baby items. I also take custom requests based on items that I sell in shop. (ex: you see a crochet needle case but want it in black and green instead of orange, just ask)
Let's see what happens!

Something New....

Here is an apron I designed and made for my niece who turned 3 a few days ago. I think it turned out quite lovely! It has velcro in the back instead of ties so it will be easier for a preschooler to deal with. She got a kitchen from Santa, by the way.

Been thinking of sewing and selling my wares online. Baby items, purses, table runners, tote bags, aprons, etc. I think I may be good enough to earn a small amount of cash, but really have zero desire to runa full fledged home business. Just want to enjoy my love of sewing by sharing it with people and finding a way to cover my expenses. So above is my new sewing machine and I love her!
I already ordered some preliminary fabric to make some items to post for sale. Then I will have to set up an etsy store and invest in some simple business cards and maybe start a separate blog for the sewing products. We'll see what happens!
