A Very Busy Week

This was such a busy and exciting week! Remember the carseat cover? You know, the one that I was going to have finished last weekend? I ran into so much trouble with it. I didn't take proper notes as to where some of the elastic was originally attached. So, I had to track down a friend who had the same seat and ask her to take photos of the specific piece of elastic so that I can finish. Needless to say, I will be finishing that (or at least working on it) tonight, even after getting up at 5:30 to go to my nieces dedication. Hopefully I can keep my eyes open for awhile.

While the car seat cover was on hold, I did manage to do a few other things. It was my sons 6th birthday recently and we had a bowling birthday party for him. Now, those of you who know me at all know that I go all out on birthday parties. The big, elaborate, handmade cake. The decorations, invitations, games, and party favors are all planned out. Not this year. Caden wanted it to be simple. Me. Simple. It was a challenge for me, but a much welcomed break. So, I made him the cake he wanted, invited the friends with a phone call as it was last minute, and managed to find cheap bowling party favors at walmart. wow. easy.

I also found some time to make some new curtains for the bathroom we are redecorating. Rather, decorating. We are renters. Not home owners. Renters. Much to our own dismay. I have refused to make this place home because we have dreams of buying our first home. Now that my husband has lost his job, I figure it just might be time to settle in and get comfortable for awhile until my photography business gets rolling full time.

I just made simple curtains with a ruffle sewn to the top, just near the bottom. I did so by cutting two strips that were double the width of the curtains long and simply hemming the edges over with a double fold and then gathering both sides of the strip. Then, I top stitched both sides of the ruffle down. Easy and very cheap.
