Today was back to work for me. Being off for a week is so nice, but it is so hard to get back into the groove. I missed Andrew and Abigail so much!! Only 2 weeks and 4 days to the next break!!

My Little Turkeys!

I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving! We had a great day of eating and spending time with family. Before we left for my parents I took some pictures of my little turkeys!

We started off inside…She hated the rocking chair!

We headed outside and the fun began! Abigail is not looking at me in almost every picture. She was way too interested in the leaves.

Eating them was the best part!

Maternity Shirt= New Chair Cover

seat cover

Since this past pregnancy was my last, unless God feels differently, I had a lot of maternity clothes that I was happy to let go. The last bag was sitting in the garage and I spotted a pretty color. The exact color that was planning on using in my office/craft space. For the longest time we have been using a dining room chair at the computer. We had old dining room chairs in the garage waiting on me to find fabric.

The color instantly made me think about office craft space. Bing Bing Bing! Everyone was sleeping (MIRACLE!), so I quickly covered the chair.

Here is the shirt and the gross seat cover!

I cut the front off the shirt and used the back to cover. The fabric was very stretchy, so it was easy to wrap around.

I stapled my way around…

Cut the extra fabric and that was it!

Repurposed Can

Can

Have you ever been really intimated by a crafting project? Well I have always been intimidated by covering something with fabric. I see all the cute boxes and crates that have been covered with fabric. I finally did it and I wish I wouldn’t have been so intimidated. It was so easy!!!

The supplies are below. I had everything on hand, so this was free for me.  First I spray painted the can white, so the color would not show through.

I then brushed Mod Podge on small sections at a time. I pressed the fabric all the way around.

I placed a generous amount on the seam.

I didn't take a picture of the inside, but I glued it also.

DSC02232-1(rev 1)

I LOVE it!! I think I will do this with every empty container!!

I hope you are stuffing yourself with turkey!
