Sunday morning

I am bracing myself for a very ambitious week ahead. Not only is my baby turning one!! we also have her doctor’s visit schedule (how I DISLIKE those darned shots!).




We are celebrating her first birthday on Sunday. That gives me 5 mornings to sew lavender sachets

from these bargains I scored last week at Ikea:

I will use this organic lavender that I purchased on Amazon for $15.99 per pound. And since I have the Amazon Prime membership (best $79 I spent last year) I got them delivered in 2 days with no shipping cost. Love love love it!


I also have to finish a 0 – 12 months banner of Stella. Kinda dreading this one… Mostly because I never figured out how to take really nice monthly pics of her. The time, especially those first 4 to 5 months, flew by and here I am trying to match photos to months…

The next thing on my to-do list is a matching outfit for both girls from this fabric I purchased at Joann’s 2 weeks ago when they had their huge sale of red tag fabrics. I just love how it’s not typically girly but that simple pink paper sailboat is just so sweet.

Meanwhile I finally would like to finish re-purposing this red t-shirt that my big girl like so much but it’s too tall for into a dress adding this denim with the cute little crap embroidery.


Of course, there is a lot of grocery shopping for the food on the list and by the way, I haven’t even thought about THE CAKE! What I have is a bunch of decorations partly from Seda’s birthday party last week and party new stuff.

I just hope that everyone stays healthy and the baby naps her long morning naps so that I can finish these projects and ENJOY them too! I’ll let you know.

So long,



Gotta get started. Shutterfly here I come!
