Flip-Flop Re-Do

I may have wanted to re-make my flip-flops but not because the dog ate them.

Oh well, I get to re-do them because the dog ate them.  Good thing she only at the part I was planning on cutting off.

Here is the Pinterest site I got it from.

I have to say that I love the flower!  I want to make more to put on my purse. :0)

Cinnamon Twist

I had some extra monkey bread dough and saw this on Pinterest and thought I'd give it a try. 

I should have just done cinnamon rolls like I wanted too.  It was doughy and too crunchy on the top.  And not many things are too crunchy for me. :0)

Dora Dress

I just love this pattern.  I have made it before here.  We had been in the fabric isle of Wal-Mart when my 2 year-old saw this material and I just couldn't say no.

The ties on the neck and here at the bottom of the pants are one of my favorites.  I'm making another Dora one for my niece that also loves Dora.  :0)

New Pleasure

 My parents gave me a new iron for my birthday.  My favorite part...
This little point here.  So very nice!!!!

Survivor Bracelets

This is another Conference craft.  We have a friend that showed us how to make these and I have looked everywhere for the cording and buckles.  I ended up ordering the buckles on-line and we found the cording at a local store.  Fun huh!  My husband made a new watch band with his and a key chain too.

Yep. Another One

I know that I have made a ton of these but I want it just right.  And really, it's like a purse, I have to change it with my mood. :0)  So here is my other ones I made, but I needed one that didn't have any cuts or unfinished edges.
I like these corners much better than just the tabs.  This way I can get to all the buttons without having to remove my Kindle.

I also didn't like that the pen would rub on my Kindle so I moved the pocket to the outside, behind the Kindle.  I like having the notebook and pen for when I see another book I'd like to get and that way I can write it down to remember.  My memory is so bad.
Laugh if you want but I have made another one too.  This one was a but bulky to be in the pocket I have for it in my purse so I just made an envelope case that I can slid my Kindle in and then it doesn't make my purse so heavy. :0)  I told you, I like to change. :0)

Home-made Hand Soap

This one is a winner.  I had a hard time getting it to thicken.  I ended up adding another little 4oz bar of soap and it still is runny.  But!  It works great!  I love it and just have to remember to be careful when I push the pump. :0)  I will be making this one again and never buying hand soap again.  I will try a different soap though.

Dishwasher Soap

I have to say that this is a fail.  When I was adding up the cost, it was to much for my budget.  It has also gone hard.  I have to use the knife to break it up just to use it.  We have also had to buy more Lemi-Shine to add with it.  I was excited because it had Lemi-Shine in it.  We still have to add some to each wash to get rid of the hard water stains.  Too bad. :0(

Floss Eggs

This was an idea that I saw on Pinterest. :0)  I knew I had to make them for my decorations for Easter.  So for Conference, I got all the stuff together, my sisters and made a mess.

I wish I would have taken a picture of us making them.  They really did make quite the mess but it was so much fun and worth it!  I think I might make a wreathe with these next year.

Happy Birthday to Me

My new purse!!!  I know that you know that I LOVE purses.  I have decided that I like making them as much as I like buying them.  Only now I just buy material. :0)

So I have this book.  I wanted to do this pattern forever and decided that it was what I wanted to do with my birthday money from my in-laws.  So I dragged my husband to the fabric store, made him stay with me for an hour while I looked for the perfect material and came home with this wonderful stuff!
I love the pockets!  I have one for my phone on the side, my keys, my Kindle! and for my other things that I just have to have in my purse.  I did change up the pattern just a bit.  I added an inside pocket with a zipper and I shortened the strap by 6".

I have decided that I need one for each season.  I told my husband when I was done making this one that I was excited to make another one.  He couldn't understand why I would want to make another one when I just finished making this one.  I told him I needed one for each season.  This is my spring one.  I already have colors that I want to do a fall one and winter one in. :0)

Door Handle

So if you remember, I made one of these for my friend that wanted one.  I really wanted one for my girls room so I made one for that.  I don't know if it makes it quieter when I shut the door.  I was hoping it would make it easier for my 2 year-old to get out of the room on her own and it hasn't done that either.  Oh well.  It was a good idea.
