I'm including two videos from Christmas I forgot to post. Hailey learned this song at preschool.

Singing to Passing Costco Shoppers

video

In classic Hailey fashion she is singing at the top of her lungs to shoppers. She was singing loud the whole time on her own. I asked her to sing louder simply because I didn't think my small camera would pick up on her singing with all the other noise. Anyway, priceless.

 Project Finally Done
(I can't take all the credit on this one)

 Thanks to my sweet friend Heather I finally finished this apron after two years of having the pattern and fabric sit in my closet. It was so fun! Hailey and Kate are now fighting over it so it looks like I need to make another!

Gifts Under Ten Dollars


 Ok, so every year we exchange names with the Heiner family. This year we had a ten dollar limit. Let's just say I had no idea what to do. I've been itching to use my awesome sewing machine and my mom gave me an awesome idea! She made bags like these with her young women out of placemats!!! When my family came into town a couple weeks ago my mom and I went a little craft crazy. We found awesome placemats at the dollar store, ribbon, beads, buttons and tubing from Ace Hardware. My mom and I were up late pulling ribbon through tubes and running to Michael's for gross grain ribbon. When my mom left we had finished one bag and that was it! I was nervous to sew on my own but it became an addiction! I kept finding cute things to sew on the purses too! I hurried quick and was able to finish the rest in time for Christmas so I could give them to my sister-in-law and cute nieces.  
 So long story short it is possible for an amateur sewer to make a gift under ten bucks!







 I am a little obsessed with crocheting right now too. It was so fun making this beanie!!! My mom taught me how to crochet when I was little but I wanted to learn how to crochet a beanie. Thank you YOU TUBE. This is the link if you're interested in the flower or beanie
