Sticky Window Art The other night I saw these two great activities while Blog hopping (Time For Play and Mom Tried It) and my brain kind of mashed them both together and we ended up with this sticky window activity (sorry to put 'mashed' and 'brain' in the same sentence but it's an accurate description, trust me).I was pretty sure Bubble would be into it but I didnt anticipate how much. She was still playing with it for almost an hour after I'd lost interest and wandered away, and made me promise about a thousand times (I wish I was exaggerating!) before she went to bed that I wouldn't take it down. I think I'll leave it up until the sticky is gone because there are countless possibilities with this activity. * clear contact* scissors* sticky tape* a window* anything you like to decorate with(we used coloured matchsticks, bottle tops and pattypans) Cut a large square of clear contact and tape it to your window with the sticky side out.
Sleeves, Necklines, Collars, and Dress Types I’ve recently ventured into drafting patterns starting from my basic bodice and skirt sloper. The fit issues are minimal, since the sloper is made skin tight. Design ease is added as you go along.

I used double sided tape to stick the 12×12 sheets together then just cut off the remaining amount of paper before I attached it to the inside of the frame. I have seen these all over lately and decided to make a few. I have seen them used for grocery lists, caledars, or just for a Honey do list I added some ribbon and rosettes just to spice them up a little bit.
No-Sew Fleece Octopus Tutorial - While She Naps I picked up this craft booklet, circa 1966, a few months ago at a church rummage sale and got inspired to update one of its projects. The yarn octopus has long been a classic toy to make for children, and I've transformed it into an even easier, and perhaps more cuddly, no-sew fleece octopus! According to my 8-year-old, her fleece octopus is "the cutest thing ever." You'll need:
princess Just like we did when Princess Diana was married, millions of people will be watching Prince William marry (soon-to-be Princess) Kate. I want to take this time to introduce Princess Iris. We just call her Iris, but she thinks she's a princess. Check out pink collar with rhinestones! We adopted her one year and two months ago from a Golden Retriever rescue organization. Easy and fun DIY Aren't we always looking for a creative way to work on shapes and letters? I know I am! A little while ago I made my daughter this activity box and she fell in love with it. So I made one for her friend who is also working on letters and shapes these days. It turned out rather darling and I thought I would share it with you! It is super easy to make and a great gift idea as well.
Sock Monkey Gosh… I am supposed to sew some thing for the Earth Month this April, but I can’t wait to sew these sock monkeys. My hands simply took over my head and see what I did after a few days and nights of sewing…. a house full of sock monkeys!!!! Do you love them? I have seen a lot of sock monkey photos hanging around friends’ photo albums in many photo sharing websites, so envy. These sock monkeys are so cute and so adorable that I would want to hug one, I bet my kids would love to have them to accompany too when mommy is busy with works. Therefore, I went out to shop for some socks thinking that may be 4 to 5 pairs should be enough, I ended up with 20 pairs of colorful socks, simply can’t resist for not buying ;-).
