Matchbox City

I have been working on this project for a LONG time. In our family it is know as a Matchbox City. I remember playing with one as a child. My mom made it for us. It is a car play mat specifically to use with Matchbox cars. They are small enough to fit inside the doors of the houses/buildings. I added an airport, an extra house, and an orchard because my piece of fabric was a little bit bigger than my mom's. I thought about labeling the buildings but then decided it would be more fun to pretend they are whatever you want them to be. I wish I had a tutorial for all of you, but I still barely have time to finish my projects while the girls are sleeping.
See how fun. Little houses for the cars.

doll diapers

I made a few doll diapers the other day. I used this tutorial, but I made mine with a little dart to give it a rounded shape in the bottom.

Father's Day 2011

I am alive and I have been doing a few things. I just haven't felt like blogging. Here are some pictures from our Father's Day celebration this year. I went with a mustache theme this year.

*The "because you mustache" gift was a pair of athletic shoes because dad "must dash".
