Today we went to a party for one of my daughters preschool classmates....she had a baking themed party. What Fun. My daughter loved putting on a apron and helping with baking. I guess I need to get out the sewing machine and make her a cute apron. I have loads of apron patterns. I like to bake but have been reluctant to have her help because it always seems like I am in a hurry and it takes so much longer with her but now that she is almost 5 she can do so many things better than she used to. I also bought a couple of new Japanese craft books. I will post some pictures of projects I am loving right now.
I gave the birthday girl one of my tutu skirts and a little box with a clothespin doll kit in it. All the kids (and moms) loved it. Maybe I will make up a couple of kits to sell in my store. I wish I had taken a picture before giving it away. I need to get more in the blogger mode and take more photos as I do things so I can post them. I have a hard time getting around to taking pictures of things I want to sell so just taking pictures to post here is going to take some training of the old brain.

Yahoo !!

Today I sold one of my car organizers......I have been hoping to do that since I listed them a couple of months ago. I love ours. My daughter loves having access to crayons, snacks, paper, books etc while in her car seat and I like not having to clean up the mess. It is perfect for her to reach forward and take stuff out. She loves to write me little notes while in the car and to draw pictures of things. It has been something we have liked since I made them and I hope the person who bought one from me likes it just as much. !!! This is step one in moving away from the I Spy business and into the other products !!! Hurray Yahoo ETC ETC.

New Stuff

I have some new stuff in my shop. A plush robot with and I Spy Belly. I have a smaller one I need to put up. Some new lunch bags and I am working on some new I Spy party favors. I am thinking that I would like to work on other favor choices and kind of do a birthday party shower favor kind of thing.
I am also hoping that lunch bags will take off. They are so cute and there are not a lot of washable cloth lunch bags out there for kids. My daughter loves hers and all the ones I have sold have been positively received. Lots of good feedback !!!
I am going to make I spy bags through this year but then I am going to cut back and start some other stuff. Working more on the Lunch bags and Clothing plus some other ideas I have floating around.
Sometimes it is like I have so many ideas in my head I just can't figure out what I want to do and stick to it.
