UPCYCLED PILLOWS

This has been the shortest week known to man!! Have you ever felt like time was just slipping through your fingers? I tell you, this week has gone by in the blink of an eye. I've gotten nothing in the way of housework or home stuff done this week but work has gotten 150% of me....I guess I can say that??

Anyhow, this week starts my official start of the Christmas. I hate the idea of Christmas shopping in December so I start at the VERY latest, October. Since October is right around the corner (OMG) there's no time better than the present for getting a jump on Christmas....

HANDMADE PRESENTS - BOOKMARKS

HAPPY FRIDAY EVERYONE!!

Well another week is over and the weekend is here...I am so thankful!! This week was particularly stressful. Steve's got my cold and later on in the week, Theo got it too. There is nothing worse than a 6 year old with a head cold. Not to mention a hubby with a head cold. Love the change of seasons.....grrrrrrr.

Anyhow, this past week (Even though it was stressful) has been a great one for my little blog. I've seen more pageviews this week than ever before. Which makes me very hopeful that people actually read my stuff! Thank you, I really do appreciate it.

So, what will I talk about this week? What craftiness will I share with you?? Well, I've mentioned in my Versatile, Aww Yeah post that I love to make things for people. So, that being RE-said, I thought I would share with you my most recent craft love.....Felt Bookmarks.

WEEK OF "FIRSTS" - MY MAKE & GIVE EXPERIENCES

Holy moly has it been hectic these past few weeks!! School started last Thursday for my Mr. Tooters. He's now officially in P3 (aka Grade 3)

As I mentioned in my last post, I absolutely love "giving". Why right now I am in the process of "giving" my severe chest infection to my loving hubby!! Seriously though, there's nothing quite like giving, is there?

Theo has been asking for a Super Mario backpack all summer. We had agreed that he would be allowed to chose what he wanted this year. We spent hours going through website after website looking for his idea of the perfect Mario bag.....with no real luck. Finally, after what seemed like an eternity of searching, we found one. Then my jaw hit the floor......£50!!!!!!!! Now, let me just say that I love my child more than anything in the world and his happiness is my main concern but SERIOUSLY 50 bucks on a school bag????? Come on!! He's only in grade 3! Of course, after we had told him no, this was the "only bag he wanted" etc etc.....his little heart was set on it.

I set out to find a compromise.......
