Summer Projects

My first post!  Whooo hooo!  I think I've rewritten the post about 10 times, but at least it's getting done, right?  So, Naptime Craftime...that's what I do!  I have two lovely, little ones that I spend most of the day chasing around, and when naptime comes around it's MY time.  Don't get me wrong - I love playing with my children, but I need something to do during the day that doesn't involve picking up toys or doing laundry!  On this blog I hope to keep track of all my projects and therefore, hold myself accountable for the ones that aren't quite finished!  Here are a few I've worked on this summer:

Chalkboard Refrigerator - just four coats of chalkboard paint and I have a great way to keep Ella busy while I cook.

T-shirt dresses - I started with onesies but Ella has out grown them :( so I moved onto t-shirts.  They are so easy to make, I think they are all she'll wear this fall.

Crayon roll

And my biggest undertaking so far...

a huge, old dresser I got for $5.  My vision is that it will hold our tv, dvds etc and be painted some kind of yellow...maybe turning some drawers into shelves.  Right now, it is torn apart (thanks for the help Margaret!) and primed.  My incentive to finish soon = parking in the garage again.

  Thanks for checking out my blog and stay tuned for more projects!
