This Week's Project...

As mentioned previously, practically everyone around me of childbearing age is pregnant. Even the ones who have tried for years unsuccessfully, they, too, have found themselves with child. I believe I've said it before, but there must be something in the water around here! Please let me know if you are interested in getting pregnant fast and I can ship you some of our local water!

In fact, T Rex is getting a bit of a complex because most of the women he hangs around have "bebes" in their tummies. I am actually just waiting for him to point to a woman's belly at the grocery store and say "bebe" just to embarrass the poor woman. Hasn't happened yet but I'm just mentally preparing for the awkward moment.

I made the vow to try and do homemade gifts this year. Goodness, of course this is when all these ladies would decide to have babies! So, here's the latest in the string of baby gifts I've made.

Pants with matching bib (rear view of pants - matching buttons on back pocket and bib)

Closer views of bib - first one I've ever made - not too bad.

And no project day is complete without T Rex having his turn at a project of his own. It was time to make more cards to go with all these baby gifts. And he is in charge of cards. Instead of finger painting he did toe painting! He LOVED it!

Did you complete any projects this week?

Much to say...
I like matchy stuff!
Cute prego pics, still small.
T-Rex is looking so grown-up. I love his eyes, they are such a handsome contrast to his olive coloring.
I've always been jealous of kids elastic pants, unless your pregnant it just isn't too cute.
Also-Big Bang Theory is one of my faves too!

You will have to let us know if he put's you in that awkward position. LOL...

I love everything you make and the cards are really cute also.

So I must ask, do you find it cheaper to do homemade gifts verses buying something?

I like that they are more personal.

Such great gifts! I love the idea of making the Christmas cards. I may steal this idea for some of our more personal cards this year. I can always count on you for some good tips!

Oh and by the way - PLEASE send some of that water from your parts!
