"Up" Comes to Life

Remember my Halloween costume from last year?
I was the house from the movie UP. Looks like I'm not the only one who decided to make something from the movie. A local contractor meticulously built the real thing (with permission from Disney).
You can watch the story here. I have to go see it in person. Pin It

Baby Break

I just had a baby so I won't be posting as frequently for the next little while. Meet baby Ezra. He came a glorious 2 weeks early and weighed in at 7lbs 3oz.

But he is a scratcher, so I made him some baby mittens for his own protection.

I used one of Ryan's old shirts from my scrap pile, and utilized the sleeve which already had the bottom hemmed. I based the shape and size on some girly ones I had for my daughter, only they are too short for his hands so I made these ones longer. I figure he won't outgrow them in a week if I make them a little bigger too. They are a nice soft jersey-knit and I like that they don't have animals or footballs all over them. Pin It
