Shawnee's Secret Santa

I am a young creative minded mother of boy/girl twins. When we decided to start a family, twins were never in the mix. They have proven to be a blessing and joy and it is a wonder to watch them grow and take in the world around them. I currently work outside the home full-time and find that working along with raising an active (read= exhausting)little family of 6 (can't forget the doggies)can be a bit of a challenge. I decided to purchase a sewing machine to give my creative side a much needed boost. Over the past 6 months I have been teaching myself to sew through my own trial and error and reading of blogs and books. It seems that I have a knack for this sewing thing as I have taken to it like a fish to water. I look forward to sharing with you a little on my life and crafting projects as things take shape!

Homeward Bound

Another great giveaway has been put together. It is for a free apron from Vicky's-My Mom Would Be Proud's Etsy Shop.
When you get a chance take a look around at the shop. She has some very cute fabrics. My personal favorite is the Rock Around the Clock. 

So I am once again home bound. My daughter decided to practice her Linda Blair moves yesterday and thus we had a stay home. The day was spent relatively uneventful. We had no more puking incidents and we thought we were home free. About half an hour after putting daughter to bed we her her plaintive cries. She had thrown up in her bed which required a full stripping and washing of her bed and pajamas and a 3rd bath for the day. We made a little bed for her next to ours and she slept soundly enough. Too soundly because the girl snores  like a trucker! In any case it required that I once again stay home from work.

An added benefit to this is that I have been able to get a jump on my Swap partners apron. I
 received my fabric in the mail on Tuesday. I spent yesterday washing, pressing, and cutting out the pattern during nap time.   This is part of the Sassy/Flirty Apron Swap . It is a Valentines day swap and I decided to go with something fun and unexpected. I saw this fabric and fell in
 love with it. It's even better looking in person. I can't wait to sew this baby together and see the finished product. I really hope that my partner will like it.

One of the great things about this swap is the little gifts they keep giving away. I was so excited to learn that I had been a winner of one of these giveaways. I won some lovely heart shaped cookie cutters. I've been trying to expand my cookie cutter stash as I have wanted to get more into cookie baking now that the twins are getting older and enjoy doing things like this. So these will be welcomed gifts!
