Baby Legs/Legwarmers

So I was in the Crafty mood today. I finally was able to do some sewing that I miss so much. Heres what I made today:

I found knee highs on sale at Target for 2 bucks and Sam has been begging for a pair of "arm warmers"

First I cut the foot off

Then Sectioned the foot

Then trimmed the mid section so it would be nice and tight, you can leave it big for grown up though. (this will be the cuff)

Turn the middle part inside out and sew the edge

When done sewing fold it inside itself so it looks like so

Your going to place the long part of the sock inside the new cuff

Then flip it upside down like so

Then sew all 3 edges together

Flip the cuff like so and you now have a finished product!

I made a pair for Sam and a Pair for Lilah ( they don't get till Christmas!)

I made Lemmon Buddies with my Chex mix today. White Chocolate and Lemon flavored buddies to be exact. and YUMMO I will have to make these again~

  • Melt 1 and 1/4 cup of White Chocolate chips with 1/4 cup butter and 3tbsp lemon juice.
  • Pour melted mixture on 9 cups of rice chex in a bag
  • Shake vigerously for up to 5 min.. (not so fun)
  • sprinkle with powdered sugar and shake a bit more
  • let cool and enjoy!

Lookie what I got today!

So I signed up for this amazing thing called "MY GET TOGETHER" I think it may be run by General Mills but Im not sure. Anyhow, you sign up and get take surveys for awesome products and parties. I got selected to do the Chex mix one and I am more than happy with what came in the box! I got a box of Chex of course and a great mixing bowl and spoon, a cool bag and what was the most suprising was a VISA gift card for $10 to buy the rest of the ingredients! HOW COOL. Oh and some coupons too! Leave a comment if you want one. Its for $2 off two boxes. So basically a dollar off each box. haha. Or comment if you want to know how you can sign up for this awesome program!

(dont mind the photo I took it with my droid)

This blog has been a mess. It started off as a way of documenting my struggles with infertility, then my pregnancy journey. then a homechool journey and then my attemps to photograph homescooling, and then campaings for products I recieved. And now I just dont know what it is. Its my ramblings I suppose. It is a blog about nothing and everything. I will post photos and some campaigns and whatever else I happen to be in love with doing in my life. Lets see what comes next. God is good and His mercies are New every morning~! So tomorrow we shall see what those mercies bring.
