When the school year began I told Yagel that Imma always comes back. This really helped hm to get used to his new preschool. It was his mantra. His teacher told me he would recite it often during the day…

Yesterday, we were driving home from school. This was our  conversation:

Yagel: Where’s Abba?

Me: At work.

Yagel: WHy?

Me: Cuz that’s his job.

Yagel: I want a job.

Me: Your job is to go to school. WHat’s Imma’s job?

Yagel: To always come back.

I am still scooping my melted heart up off the floor… I definitely have the best job, don’t you think?

time suck….

I have been sucked into the internet time-suck… I have so much to do, and all I do is sit and look at other people’s amazing handiwork…

last night my dad sat me down and insisted that I make myself mini-goals for each week, and that I send them to him… he is so right. I need to get back on track, and fast!

Since I have nothing crafty-sewing to show, I thought I’d show you some pics I took a while ago that I really like…

Flowers... don't know what they are called 🙂

reduce, reuse, recycle…

In the spirit of green, I repurposed an old sweater that didn’t fit right after being washed in the machine and spun too much…

forgot to take a pic of the before… but here’s the after

I did the border in a gingham, with raw edges, on purpose, just for that rusticy touch. The bottom is “sewn” using the same gingham fabric…

this pillow was done with a disappearing 9-patch that I learned from Blessed Roots.
And in the spirit of sewing, I made Ziv a rag-cube…

penny people – beautiful artwork
the polkadot spot – cute buntings
manic muffin – gorgeous pillows
that’s all for now!
MWAH!

I miss my camera. the one I have needs to be charged every day. And, I forget (Ziv is sucking my brain out through my boob 🙂 )…

I have been happily crafting along, made 5 bunnies and a scarf, and only took pictures of two bunnies… since everything was given away and I have no pics to show for it, does that mean it never happened? Too philosophical for me…

Here is Yagel’s bunny. He chose the colour and the fabric. It sleeps with him. With him and the other 17 million animals in his bed… it a regular menagerie…

Since I have nothing to show for my hard work, I’ll show you the work of others… at least someone is wise as well as creative… lol…

30 days is a talented one… she has tones of ideas and tons of links to other people’s great ideas… I have been reading for hours…

the long thread… another amazing blog… I can’t imagine what took me so long to find this one… she has a great list of 100 tutorials of 2008… that could take days to wade through…

And check out Jodie! So cute, so talented, amazing stuff!

And Blessed Roots: what a great way to display her kids’ artwork! I can’t wait for Yagel to draw something for me to hang…

And now, for the unsolicited pics of my two gorgeous kids… who played together yesterday, cracking each other up… and today, had a fight… if you can call it that (Ziv is only 10 months old), but she had a toy and Yagel grabbed it away from her and she cried…. the first of many, I know…

… like bunnies

I have been wracking my brain for a gift for my niece. She’s got a birthday next monday… I can’t believe she’ll be a year old already! She is the cutest little thing.

Parparim wrote a really great and easy to follow tutorial and totally inspired me.
