PANCAKES!Simon loves to help. Okay...with moving, I haven't been able to grocery shop for a few weeks. I usually put in some type of veggie or fruit in his pancakes to keep it extra healthy... zuchinni, blueberries, carrots, banana, apples... The only thing I had in my fridge was a half of a sweet potato! I know...I know... it could have been more delicious with one of those foods, but Simon didn't care!
This is the first night in his very own BIG BOY BED... yes, people... Simon is 4 years-old! Hey...it's better late than never, right?!
We finally moved to a bigger home with 3 bedrooms (I might add)! The season has come for us to move into a home where we can grow... and lil' Simon can have his own space and his very own room! We're so excited for him... and us!
After a few tickles and laughter to get him to relax...
we snuggled him up... said our prayers... and hope for an uninterrupted night sleep;)
We have many treasures we're bringing to our new home...
that fits little Simon's booty, a handmade lamp that my step-dad made for Simon when he was a baby,
a handmade quilt that my Mom made Dave (my hubby) when I was dating him.... it was only a month into our dating and she whipped up a quilt for his birthday... (she had a clue that this wasn't just dating... it was TRUE LOVE),
and another handmade quilt by my mama that she made for our bed (an absolute treasure that will be passed down from generation to generation).
As I pack up my belongings, I am reminded of all the memorable moments in my life, all the cherished family members, and the knick-knacks that actually have some significance in our heritage.
I am thankful for all of our loved-ones who paved the way for our lives to be as blessed as it is.
Every time I look around my home, I will see the goodness of God, the legacy of family, and the bright future that is ahead of us.
it caught my interest since I've only had 2 sales on Etsy..
I read it and it made me teary-eyed!
I am BEYOND thankful for every penny I make
through sewing, but...
it makes my lil' stay-at-home job that much sweeter
when I get a little encouragement
from a customer
who I don't even know.
Thank you, Katie...
you made my DAY!
(Wouldn't this make you smile)

sooooo....here goes.... First, you take some fun fabric of your choice. I chose this awesome 'Dick and Jane' 1940's fabric to go with the quilt on his bed. Cut fabric in the measurements of the couch pillow, adding about 3/4inch to each side.
Next, take the edges of THREE sides and iron 1/4inch down. This adds a little security to the seams once the pillow is made.
Next, place fabric sides together, right side to right side.
Pin the THREE sides together like this,
leaving one open side to slide the pillow into.
Next, sew sides together.
Reach inside your pillowcase and pull out the pretty side.
Slide your recycled pillow inside the pillowcase.
Then, take the open side and fold inward about 1/4inch
and Pin along the edge.
(so sorry I don't have a pic for this one)
Once pinned, sew along edge.
This will make the pillowcase fit securely around the pillow.
