It's once again a Monday. I usually love Mondays (generally the days I bake and get ready for my week), but today it is just plain HOT! Did I mention that it is HOT today. Really, Jon came in this morning and said it was supposed to be 112 degrees! I do not want to see our next PG&E bill! So, as the heat has arrived, I don't want to bake as to heat up the house. So, I am attempting to do my "Weekend Recovery" this morning while Ethan naps so that I can tackle my list of upcoming projects this afternoon. I am very excited about my upcoming projects, including Ethan's birthday party stuff and VBS stuff. I will post pictures of all projects as soon as I can.
Oh yes, I did want to mention that someone just ordered a tag blanket from me. I am so excited! My first sell!. It was never really my intention to sell the stuff I made, but if I can make a few extra dollars to pay for my hobbies. . . then I'm all for it!
I did want to post something fun this morning, though. This is a giraffe rattle that I made Ethan before we left for vacation. The pattern is from Lotta Jansdotter's baby book, Simple Sewing for Baby using fabric from Amy Butler. Ethan absolutely loves carrying it around the house! Hopefully I will get the motivation to make cookies for Jon's lunch. I found an awesome cookie recipe that I am just so excited to make!
