Fabric Checkbook Covers



Well...I'm at it again. Teacher's Appreciation Week came around for My youngest son Jonathan's school. I wanted to make something for all of the teachers (not just his). Well, when I called to see how many teachers were on staff I was shocked to find out it was 42! So, since I still wanted to make something I had to do it on a much smaller scale. Then...the checkbook covers were born. Here's a photo of a few of them. The teachers really appreciated my hand made gifts.

Diaper Cakes!!

I have a friend who's hosting a baby shower and a niece who's expecting. I saw a tutorial on youtube on how to make diaper cakes as baby shower gifts ( yes, I look at alot of craft tutorials - it's an addiction of mine). I believe the site was creativebabyshowerideas.com. Both girls are expecting baby boys. Here is a photo of my first diaper cake. I think it is absolutely adorable!!! I can't wait for the next baby shower. Hope you like it enough to try one. They take about 60 diapers and trust me, there's no better gift for a new mom than diapers AND tney're really easy to make!
