1.) For Valentines Day this year, I made Jayce a little detective kit. (Did you recognize him above? He's in disguise, but showing his ID, so you know that it's really him.) I also made one for his sidekick, Chris. :) I'm having to sit on my hands to not write a tutorial for the detective kit. Oh Lemon Tree Creations, I'm having such a hard time quitting you! :)
Either way, I'll write a little more about their kits in my Valentine's Day post. Is is sad that it's been 2 weeks now and that it's not up yet? I'm a little behind. Actually I just realized that there are only 10 posts for all of February, and I usually try to write at least 3 times per week, so I've definitely been tired. But we'll get there.
2.) Unfortunately little Hannah is to blame for my lack of free time, and that's okay. It's the same old story, her teeth are hurting and she can't sleep. Her nighttime sleep is suffering and her naps are short, so that is that. Last night I looked at her on the monitor, she had lost her little elephant that she likes to snuggle/chew, so she had pulled down the side of the bumper and was chewing on the edge of it. Poor thing.
3.) Now that the weather is getting warmer I've been thinking about our summer and taking the kids outside. Hannah isn't crawling quite yet, and I doubt she'll be walking by summer, so I'd really like to get a good big quilt that I can lay out on the grass outside to play with her. We have a few larger quilts that are family heirlooms, and a little delicate, so I'm not comfortable with laying them out on the grass and dirt in the backyard.
I found an amazing quilt shop a few weeks ago that I keep telling Chris about, Linen and Thread, and I am itching to get my hands on this large blue and beige chevron quilt. The woman who makes the quilts has a grandson with Type 1 diabetes, so she donates 100% of the profits from her quilts to juvenile diabetes research. Isn't that cool? Soooo, basically I'd make a donation to Juvenile Diabetes Research and get a beautiful handmade quilt. I'm in. The quilts are 25% off for the month of February with a promo code, so my big plan was to put a bunch of stuff in my Etsy shop this month and try to get some extra cash rolling in. Unfortunately teething got in the way a bit and I haven't had the free time that I thought I would. But maybe she'll have another sale in the next few months and I can get one for that comfortable warm season. :)
And that is that for now! My sweetie is back up and I'm off to her rescue. I'll just publish a short list for now or my blog may lie dormant all week.
