This is a new project that I have been working on. Sami has been wanting me to make her a badge for the longest time and she wanted her age on it. I actually love how they turned out (sorry that the second and third pictures are blurry). I'm thinking of making some for my class for the students to have. I have a few more that I am working on that have different "things" in the center of the circle on the badge. I'll be posting them as I get them finished.

I make personalized pillows out of felt. I was contacted by a lady who is having a foreign exchange student coming next week. She asked if I could do a red pillow with white lettering and if I could put a maple leaf at the end. I think it turned out nicely! I think it will make a nice souvenir for him to take back home.

Here is a picture of a tic tac toe game that I have made. I'm selling them for $5. I think they would be perfect for tic tac toe lovers of any age. Great for gifts, as well as for travelling.

Set includes a game board and 12 game pieces (6 each X’s and O’s). Game board is made from 7-mesh plastic canvas and chunky yarn. Game board is a 7” square. Game pieces are also made from 7-mesh plastic canvas and 4-ply yarn. Game pieces are 1 ¾” x 1 ¾”.

I am planning on making a few more of these sets in various colors to let the students in my class use.

Here is a LO that I did of a picture of Sami from last year. When I saw her like this, I had to run in and get the camera b/c I thought it was the cutest thing ever.

When Roger first saw this movie preview, he has wanted to go see it. I found this a little strange b/c it isn't his typical style of movie. I have had the book for ages, but never picked it up until this past weekend. I just finished it this morning and I must say that I loved it! We are planning on going to the movies tonight to see if (we have a coupon for buy one admission, get one free). I'm hoping the movie will do the book justice.

I officially start back to school on Friday. Next week, I'll be in the classroom getting everything prepared for when the kiddies start on September 8th. I'm actually looking forward to getting back into the classroom. I absolutely love the beginning of a new schoolyear and a new set of children to teach. It is such an exciting time! Something that is making this year much more exciting is that my daughter is starting school this year. She is so excited and already has her outfit picked out and her bookbag packed for the first day. =) She has been wanting to pack her lunch for the longest time, but I keep telling her that it is too early yet. It isn't hard to tell that she is excited to get started. =)

We finally were able to see the latest Harry Potter movie today. I have been looking forward to seeing this ever since it came out, but I'm sad to report that it wasn't the greatest. =( I guess I was just expecting a whole lot more! It just seemed boring compared to the rest. We did find out more about some of the characters though, so I guess it wasn't a complete loss afterall. I don't regret going to see it b/c I do love Harry Potter and look forward to the next installment. =)

We are up in Woodstock right now, visiting friends. Today, we went to Jellystone Park and had a blast! It was Samantha's first time on a water slide and she was so excited. She was too afraid to go on her own, so she went on my lap or on a friend's lap. We would take occasional breaks and hang out in the pool. We all had a lot of fun!!! When I get back home I'll post pictures of the outing. =)

Sami and I went to the movies this afternoon and saw G-Force in 3D. I know that it has gotten some bad reviews, but Sami loved it and I found it pretty funny! We give it 2 thumbs up!!!
Here is a picture of my crafty girl while up at my Mom's yesterday. I have been doing some craftiness using plastic canvas and she wanted to give it a try.

Things in the Craft Den have been very busy the past few weeks. I have not been working on making cards or scrapbooking, which I have been really missing lately. I have been doing more felt creations and coming up with new ideas. One of my older creations that has really been selling lots lately have been my felt cookies, with sprinkles on top. They have been selling to not only parents and daycares for play time, but also to teachers to incorporate into their teaching. Teachers are using them for teaching colors and for addition and subtration tools. Selling these to teachers got to to thinking and I have many ideas in the making and cannot wait to show you all. I will soon be a teacher myself so I will be making lots that I can use in the classroom. I hope that others will find that they will be useful too.
