I'm thankful for my home,

I am thankful for fresh milk

I am thankful for two little girls

I am thankful for my Mom who made cookies with the girls

I'm thankful for green decorating sugar

I'm thankful for soap, to make the green disappear

I'm thankful for the fun involve in making these cookies and eating them

Cover that caos

S-L-O-W-L-Y making curtains to cover up my open shelve in the kitchen. With having a see in fridge (even when organized it can look messy) I NEED to cover up my storage shelve. The mess makes me frazzled. I had this fabric laying around and started taking measurements and finally found a bit a velcro (sticky on only one side) and got it up.

Crayon Roll Up anyone?

So I've heard about these and finally decided to make one. Here's mine.... I thought it turned out cute. I'm also making one for the girls, with reversed colours. I'm excited.

This is what it looks like, once rolled up and ready to go in my bag.

Plain wipes case.... no more

So I've been seeing these online and thought I'd give it a whirl.
I love them.
Now even after the kids are out of diapers, I can still have wipes in my bag for sticky fingers, and things can look fancy.

For a girl above

And for a boy

What do you think?

Put a flower in your hair

So I've been a little bit envious of all the pretty hair thingies, everybody and their cat has been wearing. And yes I wanted some too... well for the girls too of course.
So I found out how to make them.... YouTube.com and be used for good things :o)
I love this one, I had this one shirt in mind when I made it, that I want to wear it with.

Here they all are. I still need to attach my little loop to the back, so I can slide in the bobby pin.

And I want to make some more kind of like this one... you know all ribbons.

The girls really like them and can't wait for Sunday when they can wear them.

Pillows for my bed

I mad the little pillow with the flowers on a couple of months ago and thought is turned out rather well.
The satiny pillowcases I made last week.
They use to be a fitted sheet I got a the thrift store. My hubby didn't appreciate the silky as much as I did.... so I turned them into these pillowcases.
I've got to say I do love them, they are all nice and soft.

The quilt my sister in law Julia made for us for Christmas a few years ago.

Somewhere to hang those postcards

Here's the notice board I made for Arilyn, She has the alphabet attached to hers. The postcards are very important.. the girls get them from their Bedste -Grandma

Here's Rhiannon's, she's 3 so she got the numbers from 1-10

They are so very excited that I made these for them... now for some eye-hooks and a hook in the wall and we're ready to hang them.
