OMG!! If only I could sew!!!

This woman just amazes me!! Now only does she make the cutest clothes out of the clothing her daughter outgrows, stains or otherwise just can no longer wear, but she puts together the CUTEST little outfits that she AMAZINGLY gets her daughter to model!! Each and every outfit is modeled by her cute little girl1!! Just amazing!!!

Recap: She can sew, coordinate outfits, get the daughter to wear them, get her to pose for pics, AND she's a great photographer!!! And that's just from ONE post!!!

I just LOVE, LOVE these ideas. I am going to have to find a place to stash a box of damaged/outgrown clothes just so I can attempt some of these ideas. Of course someone is going to have to teach me how to sEW!!!! please!?

Weigh In #6

OK so after a not so great weekend, I thought I had actually gained 2 pounds-according to my scale at home. However according to the scale at work I had lost 3 pounds! Could it be I was just totally off last week when I weighed at home?? Or is the work scale finally catching up with my home scale?? Who knows-its all getting a bit confusing to keep up with!!! All in all at work I have lost 13 pounds. According to my scale at home I have lost 15 pounds-not that big of a difference between the two. Still not were I want to be two months into this program.

I still need to add in a daily workout-which has been delayed by a mysterious injury to my knee. Apparently I was playing soccer in my sleep one night and sprained my knee. I mean how else can one go to bed one night with no injuries and wake up the next morning with a sprained knee!! Went to the doctor to have it checked after 9 days of pain and some swelling. Called on day 8 to make the appointment. Woke up the day of the appointment with very little pain and no swelling. That is one AWESOME doctor to be able to heal an injury with just an appointment-I hadn't even seen him yet!! So he says its just strained/sprained and should heal in a few days to two weeks tops. We shall see!!!

I am still sticking to the Atkins diet-although I have been straying a bit, which could be why the weight loss and slowed a bit. Gotta get on track and stay on track if I want to get the baby weight off before summer!!!

Weigh in #5

Well per the scale at work I lost 1 pound-at home I lost 2. Guess that's not too bad considering I ate tons of gummy bears this weekend and some cereal. I am trying to stick to Atkins as it seems to get the weight off faster. I have stayed with low fat meats and cheeses and tried to incorporate more salads. I haven't felt hungry at all but just can't resist those gummy bears-especially when I am giving them to my 2 year old as a reward for potty training. I did the Wii Active once last week-kinda week there in the exercise department-really need to work on that!!!

So far today I have done well-even with a sleepless weekend and a stressful Monday. Hopefully I can stop by Kroger on the way home and pick up some CarbPops. Walmart doesn't have them-so I have to make a special trip to Kroger-and they sure are expensive!!!! But I just have to have a chocolate treat at night!!!

The crafting front is on hold right now until I get a bit more sleep-my 5 month old seems to have an ear infection. Will get him to the dr tomorrow. He hasn't slept well all weekend. Sunday night he was up every hour-screaming for 30-45 minutes before he would finally fall asleep. Then he would wake up after about 20 minutes and start all over. He took his bottles just fine but wouldn't nurse. Looks like another round of antibiotics for him.

Finally-initials-after two years

I bought these initials for baby girl's wall two years ago. I finally got them out this weekend to cover them with fabric to match her bow organizer-and realized the "M" is actually a "W". I should still be able to make it work-but I cannot believe I didn't notice this when I bought it. Anywho-I covered the "P" with the same fabric I did her bow organizer and the other two initials in complementary colors. I then heat embossed flowers and an owl on the the solid colors. Not sure I like them-might go back and cut out some of the flowers from the patterned fabric and modge podge them on the solid letters.
