A Weekend Getaway

by This is Carrie on January 21, 2009

We spent the MLK weekend in the country with some very fun people who absolutely spoiled us all rotten. We spent time birdwatching, hammock swinging, and egg gathering during what had to have been the most beautiful weekend in January…ever.

Making Stuff: Bum Covers

by This is Carrie on January 14, 2009

Not nearly as great as Francie Pants (which are AWESOME by the way), but we got a couple of active girls in this house who love to wear skirts so we need a large stack of bum covers. These were made from a thrift store t-shirt.

Making Stuff: Amigurumi Turtle

by This is Carrie on January 13, 2009

My first attempt and crochet amigurumi. I only had one small problem during the final head attachment.Doh!I thought it would be a nice little baby gift so I sacrificed one of Baby Brothers little toys so I could put a small rattle into it (and I reattached the head).

Cross it off the list

by This is Carrie on January 13, 2009
