Another gift I wanted to keep for myself...bed sheets!

Wouldn't it be nice if we could have a "marriage shower"? You know, like a bridal or baby shower, but after you have been married for awhile?

I would definitely go for one, and if so, this is what I would want to receive.

Dark chocolate brown, 100% egyptian cotton sheets, embroidered with
1 Corinthians 13:4-8.

These were actually a wedding gift that I made for a friend, but I can dream that they are mine! (DISCLAIMER: The top sheet was put on this bed for the sole purpose of taking photographs...is that weird? It was folded just under the comforter so it hardly touched this bed. Didn't want anyone to think I give used wedding gifts!) So I had a little fun with our wedding rings and these sheets for some pics...can I tell you that rings are VERY hard to photograph?

Coupon tote!

As many of you know, in my spare time I like to COUPON. And for those of you who really know me, I have tried to talk you into becoming a couponer, too!

My sister has started couponing, and for her birthday I wanted to make her a coupon tote. Not just any tote, but an AWESOME coupon tote.

If it didn't have her name on it, I definitely would have kept it for myself.

It is a tote...

...open up the velcro side flaps...

...and you open it up to coupon pages! Coupon pages sewn with heavyweight sheet protectors and some cardstock

Pockets for scissors, calculator, elastic loops for pens...she is all set!

And best of all, it coordinates with her custom diaper bag. Not only is she a savvy shopper now, she is a fashionable shopper, too!

Camp chairs

I was asked to embroider on camp chairs for mother's and father's day gifts...and now I want to make one for everyone that I know!
