'Welcome to June' Projects

I won those vinyl letters from a blog, you may have heard of it, The DIY Showoff? Anyway, I wanted to make this little dormer a reading nook.

I want to make a foam cushion - is it just me or is that stuff outrageously expensive? - and some pillows, but for now, an old quilt will suffice.
I made the curtain, can you tell? I hate making curtains.
I hope this area will get lots of use, especially with Elizabeth's reading skills taking off and a growing family.

I'm mostly thankful that the large smear of bird poop on the window didn't show up on the pictures.
I made this re-usable lunch sack for Bryce. He usually takes his lunch in a plastic grocery sack, but since I've been using re-usable grocery bags, we have no sacks to be found.
He may have also been slightly embarrassed since the last sack he took was an over sized Disney Store bag....The moral of this story is going green requires a lot more work than leaving a large imprint on our natural resources.I made these tags for my mom. It seems that when you go to some one's house and try to be nice and cook something while that someone is either sleeping or napping because they just had a baby, multiple white substances in glass containers can get confusing.

Now there are no excuses for her not coming back to visit....and to cook while she's here.

Have a great weekend.



  1. You might want to keep an eye out for used couch cushions for that window seat. I hope your mom does cook for you when she comes LOL.

  2. I save my 50% off coupons at Joann's for pillow forms! also, any cheap pillows at Walmart, target, etc are easy to recover.but, the quilt is cute anyway!
