My sister sent me a couple of pics with baby Z’s stuff. They are a little fuzzy but you can get the idea.
Do you like that bed without a mattress? 🙂Hmmmm, does she need a changing pad cover or two? I might need to get on that!
She sent the canvas back home so I could put fabric on it instead of vinyl. I’ll mail it to her when I get it done. Now, we just need baby Z!
I have a “list” of weekend projects. Of course, I’m sitting at the computer right now, NOT doing them. Hopefully I will have some crafty goodness to share by this evening!

Another project almost marked off the list – T1/2’s bathroom. We made a little built in unit last summer when we had the tub installed and that was all we did to it. No baseboard, no trim, not paint, just MDF piled with crap. With T2’s help, we painted and trimmed the area a few days ago. I also whipped up a
little sign for above the toilet. The “almost” in the post happened when I turned around and realized we only have 1 of 3 door frame pieces up. Oh well, maybe next weekend because I report back to school tomorrow 😦
T2 painting 🙂
I used vinyl from Expressions Vinyl. They have some frosted vinyl that I used for the soap bubbles. They ship quickly and have a huge selection of vinyl and they are having a sale right now getting ready for the Silhouette Cameo so check them out!

As summer wraps up at the Tolen home, we have been getting in some last activities. T2 has been reading ALOT! She knows homework will be coming soon as a Freshy. She has also been helping the Mr. T get their bathroom finished (pics when finished.)
T3 & T4 decided to use some lego guys and make a Link from Zelda. This was done completely on their own and WOW! What talent from a 8 & 11 year old. The hair and hat are even removable, sculpted from clay and baked. They used my craft paint for the outfits and then I sprayed them with a clear sealer.
T1 has been busy with another photo shoot. The handsome young man will be a senior this year and T1 volunteered to take his pictures. This was her first sr. pic photo shoot and it turned out great. I’m only posting a few of the pics but there were SOOO many good ones to choose from.
I really want her to take some pics of the sibs before shool starts, but she made the varsity volleyball team yesterday and still has band camp of an evening so maybe on Saturday….

Remember this cute rag quilt I made for a beautiful baby? Well that baby is turning 1 and my cousin asked if I would make her a personalized onesie. I have done this before but was excited to use the silhouette to cut out the fabric. It worked quite well although I’m not sure it saves tons of time and I don’t like the fabric waste. My issue came when I began to sew it to the onesie. It was skipping stitches and not feeding properly, yet I pressed on. The onesie is OK, disappointed on my end. It should have arrived in the mail yesterday so I hope to hear from them soon and she promised pics of the birthday with her tutu on.
My wonderful mom came to visit yesterday and I was telling her about taking my machine for service. She convinced me to tear it apart myself and do it. So, the Mr. T and I worked on it last night. It sings to me now-what a difference. I’m thankful for the wisdom of my mama who saved me $65 and a week and a half without a sewing machine.

I picked up this table at Goodwill a few months back for $24. It was a solid piece with a little mold here and there and two functional drawers on rollers. I knew it would be perfect for the craft area so I bought it and it sat in my garage.
I love when a table has writing on it and this isn’t the last project I intend to do this to, but when I saw the post at It’s Just Me via Graphics Fairy and I knew this was the design. I painted the base with my leaf green spray paint (love me some leaf green!!!), sanded and painted this image from Graphics Fairy. I then put a darker stain over the top and two coats of poly. I debated about distressing and glazing, but in the end decided not to. I may go back later and work on the base some.
I LOVE THIS TABLE!
I have a drop leaf table that I want to redo for the basement and I want the #4 on it somehow. I did see a cute copy of the Cocao graphic at Graphics Fairy only using their name. That’s an option too. This could get addictive!
