I went through the MomPack fillers I have received over the past few weeks and made MomPacks. If you are interested, Mompacks is a group set up for moms who are business owners to send there promotional material (ei, business cards, etc.) to each other. In turn they are made into packs and given out at any and all events you can think of. I send them out with my orders and give them away at homeschool meetings. Its great for the mom who is receiving it because there are always coupons and samples and little treats.
Then I sewed a dog bed for Franklin. He had taken to sneaking up in the couch at night, which is not allowed. The bed is very big, but so is he. I think he likes it because he hasn't been on the couch sense. The girls thought I had made it for them. Ava was so cute, she crawled up on it and laid her head down like she was going to sleep.
I finished painting the base and window trims for the bathroom and Rob nailed them up. We are 98% done with the bathroom, just a few minor touch ups and shelves to add to the walls for storage. I am so happy with this bathroom. It is the first time I have ever been able to design a bathroom, and after what we had before, to me its beautiful. I have some before and after pics below. Please remember that the before pics are from a 106 year old bathroom.
New bathroom, with the tub we refinished.
I also finished painting the wall downstairs that we had to go through to change out the plumbing. Rob patched the Sheetrock and I painted it and put the baby pics back up with one addition, Miss Ava Rose. I am on the hunt for a matching picture frame, it really sticks out. I didn't keep baby books, so this is the one thing that I do, when each one is 9-11 months they get a formal picture taken and we add it to our wall of fame. If I ever get frustrated I just sit in front of it and remind myself what I was placed here to do and I can see how sweet and precious they started out as ;-) hehehe there still sweet and precious, most of the time!
This is turning out to be one long post, sorry about that. On to the important stuff. The winners of the contest are........EVERYONE! Let me know if you have Boys or girls and how many and I will put a package together based on that. You can contact me here! Have a great Monday!
