And these Alphabet flash cards
see pin hereAnd then I decided to make some number flash cards for Kadie. In school, they're learning to count to twenty, so what better way to work on them with her? I made them using my My Memories Suite program. Perfect!
They've been having a lot of fun with them, and it's perfect for taking to church as a quiet activity.
Now I just need to make some of these color flash cards for Gavin.

The closet felt like a good beginner. Here is a shot of how it looked before. Things always get shoved on the top shelf, the kids always throw their shoes and coats on the floor, and the vacuum always falls over from the "shoving of the shoes".And here she is after! Oh, organization, how I love thee.
I picked up some hangers from Ikea that were on sale. 99 cents for a 5-pack!! Sweet, right?! I love that I now have nice, uniform hangers in this closet.
The hubs built me a shelf for shoes, so the kids are no longer allowed to throw their shoes in there. They have to place them on the shelf. We'll see if it lasts.The vacuum has a perfect little nook now. It's no longer able to fall over! And the hose has a hook for it to hang on, off of the floor.
I picked up a couple canvas baskets at Walmart for $7 a piece (they were a little cheaper at the store then they are on line. Plus they had brown there and not online). Now there's no room to shove things on the top shelf. The one on the left holds all the vacuum accessories. Before they were in a mesh bag next to the vacuum.
I want to find a stencil to stencil the inside of the closet. I've been seeing that a lot around the web lately, and I love it! There's no reason your closets shouldn't look pretty as well as the rest of the house!

...and for my family. Chloe's bumper and ruffled bed skirt have been done for a while, just need to finish that pesky quilt!!There's been some custom furniture building going on by the hubs. A GORGEOUS table for my bedroom......and some custom built-ins for my craft room. Just need to be patched and painted.
There has been a lot of organizing going on, since that is my resolution every new year. I bought a new set of drawers for my office that we turned into filing cabinets, so I've been working like crazy to get all our files organized for upcoming taxes, and just for the future of our sanity.And what's organizing without some pretty organizing accessories. Right?They just make it some much more fun.
I've spent lots of time munching on these feet...
...and just yesterday, we welcomed these new feet into the world. (My newest niece)
So, as you can see, I'm still here.
And there's so much to share.

It opens up to little sections for organizing her supplies.It's nice to have places for the kids to keep their coloring supplies so they're not stuffed in my closets. Plus, if they want to color, we send them to their desks so it's not all over my kitchen counter or table while I'm trying to cook. Bonus!!
I'll have more to share soon enough!! Lots of projects, lots of project ideas!! So until then...

She has a tutorial on there for the Retro Duffel Bag, which I had to make (although I used store bought webbing, and next time I think I'll make my own like she did. I like the looks of it a whole lot better!)
And I put together a tag to go with it. Hopefully they enjoy the gift. Apparently (according to my sister) they love building forts, so hopefully this will make it a little easier for them.
What did you get for Christmas??
