I have been feeling very craftsy as of late and would like to share some of the things I've made with you!  Around a week ago I made a scrapbook of our Las Vegas trip from Nov 2010!  I love to scrapbook and I figured since the baby will be here sooner rather than later I should really start scrapbooking all the events that I've been neglecting!  I am also going to be making one for our cruise to the Bahamas from Sept 2010!  That will be started sometime here in the near future!  

Secondly I've been wanting to make a taggie blanket for the baby!  So Saturday night I had the house to myself except for the animals and I sewed away!  It's quite cute!  Its got wild animals on one side and then the other side is red and back checkered with paw prints!  I asked my hubby which one I should make and he suggested to do one side in the animal print and the other side in the paw prints!  So I did and I really like it!  I've made numerous taggie blankets before however I've never used my sewing machine so this was my first attempt with using the sewing machine and let me tell you its so much easier and much much faster!!! 

Whilst sewing on Saturday night I received an email from my friend MK about another sewing project that she found!  Since I was in such a crafty mood I decided to attempt that as well!!! I had a shirt that I've never worn because it just never fit right and I was able to make it into something that I really like!  So I'm quite proud of myself for using my sewing machine for two projects this weekend! 
The shirt is slightly hard to see due to its pale color!  I love the idea of "Re-Styling" your closet so I think I'm going to have to see what other ideas this crafty lady comes up with on her blog!  This is also the first outfit where someone who didn't know me asked if I was expecting so that makes me like this shirt all the more!  It's only take 28.5 weeks for someone to ask but they finally did!!! 

Hope everyone has a wonderful week!
