Crafting time has been cut to nil and lesson planning time has increased exponentially.
No time for more than this right now.
Garage sale scheduled for Saturday to make some money to spend at crafty stores to replace the crap I'm selling. Hubby is thrilled. :)

I've had these cookies from Skip to my Lou on my Favorites list for several months and finally got around to making them. I used Betty Crocker's French Vanilla Cake Mix and added milk chocolate chips to them. They're pretty good! Easy, peasy, lemon squeezy.
Hubby and I have already had a few... each. :) We're supposed to take them to a friend's for dinner tonight; I hope they last!

iPod Nano Pouch
I'm also pleased to note that my chair covers are being admired at school and a colleague asked me to make her some. Yay for handmade!

I added a cute owl iron-on transfer that I bought at JoAnn's a while back. I love that store. I love all craft stores. I love to make stuff!
Ahem. I got a little carried away, sorry. :)

I also had originally used a really thick, heavy interfacing. I replaced that with a medium weight that works a lot better.
I added a snap, too. I'm really sick of the whole project and am VERY glad I can cross it off my list! Hopefully that won't stop me from using it. :)
Let's revisit the original list and see how I'm doing!
•use cute brown fabric to make a skirt
•turn plaid dress into skirt
•chair cover for classroom with owl print flannel (DONE)
•finish my large size Starling bag
•punch needle owl kit
•messenger bag (DONE)
•recycle an old pair of jeans into an apron (DONE)
Three down, four to go!Well, not really...
I added a few new projects to the list. :)
- Make a fabric basket for my teammates to hold back-to-school goodies.
- Make a fabric cover for my planner/to do list for the school year.
That's not so bad, although I do need to make three baskets. Still, I'm going to use Pink Penguin's tutorial and they are really small.
