Monday and getting back into the swing of things...

Happy Monday!!!

I have lots of little bits and bobs to share with you today.

First up are the fabrics for Kat's bed. Thank you for all your suggestions! I went to a quilting store while I was in Midland, The Quilting Patch, and they had exactly the type fabrics that I had in mind. Now to get the bedding to look exactly how I see it in my mind too...LOL!

I will share more as I go through the sewing process (which probably won't start in earnest until Ben leaves at the end of August.)
I have also been playing with some of the weekly sketches and the new kit of the month promotion kit from Unity Stamp co, Stylin Stars. When you sign up for the kit of the month this month, you will get this gorgeous stars kit completely free. It's a fantastic deal!!!

This card is based upon this week's Mojo Monday sketch (I altered the basic layout with the strips just a tiny bit and changed it from 3 strips to 2) MOJO #96.
Supplies Used:
*Unity Stamp Co. Stylin Stars
*MM paper collection and ribbon
*Marvy Uchida Circle punches
*large black brads

This second card is based upon this week's CPS Sketch (#125.)
*Unity Stamp Co. Stylin Stars
*Unity Stamp Co. Feb kom (sentiment)
*Heather Bailey Autumn Leaves paper (yellow)
*MME papers
*Fiskars border punch
*Marvy Uchida circle punches
*corner rounder
*eyelet ribbon trim
Today was the official first day of high school football practice for Jacob. Ben and he went and got his pads Friday. It sounds like it went well although he is concerned about his lack of skills so I think that we will all be drilling with him for a while. Jacob has never played any sort of football before so this is all new to all of us. I guess that I need to work on my throwing skills.
