Playing Catch Up...

I realize its been awhile since I posted on the blog so I will give you a quick run down....

We have been getting crafty around here!  Todd and I decided that the floor next to our bed was no longer working out to keep stuff on so we built (well he built, I painted) some new bedside tables.

Our garden has definitely not been as good as last year, we planted it later this year and with the super hot weather a lot of stuff didn't make it.  After mowing today, I discovered that our cucumbers are doing quite well!  I didn't notice earlier because the vines are pretty thick, but oh man did I find them today!

Lastly, I am in the process of getting an Etsy shop up and going.  I finally made myself a little sewing area down in the basement which has been working out pretty well.  I have made a couple things for family members and today I had my first paying customer!  Once I have more clothing items made and my shop up and going I will blog more about my sewing and crafting endeavors there!

This was a dress for my niece Memphis.

These were dresses for the daughters of a teacher I work with! SOO CUTE!
