The Big Reveal

Okay, so not so big but it is finished finally. The other day I mentioned a craft I was working on from scrap fabric for my kiddos playroom. I have been wanting to try a rag-a-muffin garland for some time and finally got my act together and finished one. I love it and it adds a bit of fun and color to the playroom. I included lots of fabrics and threw in some cute trinkets and hung pictures and a hand painting Jack did at school. I love it and I love how it hangs from the big clothespins. I think a big Wall Words would be cute right above it saying something about playing or brothers or something. A little closer to finishing the playroom.

A little T block for our last name and our sweet boys.

An overview of the garland...I swear our walls are a pretty color...picture looks terrible.

Little Sammy and a front loader.

A little wooden airplane.

I told you he crafts.

Today was a great day. I got these.....



I can't wait to wear them with everything...jeans tucked in...short, denim skirt...cute, spring dresses....big, bulky sweaters. I love my new Frye Boots....thank you sweet hubby of mine.


When you get diaper rash in our house you get to hang out like this....

Poor Sammy, I hope your hiney heals quickly.

Poor little sweetie...give you a hint! At Childrens Hospital..they told me to put a thin layer of desin..then a thin layer of medicated baby powder..then a final layer of CRISCO! Yes, crisco...you will never be able to cook with it again!

Poor little bum! As for the ragamuffin garland, I love how it looks. Makes me want to try to make one myself! You asked about potty training on my blog...not yet! Nina is not very interested and we don't want to push it and make it worse. Think we'll try to buy a little potty just to intrigue her. But no real progress yet! :)
