Now that Christmas has happened, I can share some more things I have made! Here are the bracelets I made for my sister's baby.

Things are pretty quiet around this blog because I am making things people can't see. But these are okay. The first was for my friend's little girl for her birthday. I liked it a lot so I made a matching one for McKenna for Christmas. I am pretty sure McKenna won't be checking out the blog before then :)

This is something I made months and months ago but only just got around to printing and laminating.
This is much like my menu planner. This is a cleaning book. I start off with my daily cleaning tasks, as well as a blank page for a daily list. My daily list had some things to do for Christmas, so I had to hide that from you.
Then I have a page for each month of the year with a list of specific cleaning items to do that month.
Then I have several pages of my deep cleaning lists
I end with some of my commonly used cleaning recipes and tips
I love it! I use my wet-erase marker to cross things off and write notes...I feel so organized.

Something we do more than anything else around here is remodel stuff. I thought it might be of interest to some of you crafters out there, so here is my first remodeling post. We just finished this last Saturday.
My friend Laura and I painted it in about two hours.
I was trying to decide between beadboard (wainscotting) or just doing moldings and painting the wall white. My husband, of course, said, let's do both! So this is both up close.
We changed the cabinet hardware. We also changed the faucet. We got a new toilet. We also did new tile. Nate hated the old tile and insisted we remove it (by we I mean "he"). It was a big job, but we do like the new tile much better.
We also put up a new light fixture, which you can't really see in the picture very well.
Oil rubbed bronze towel rack, toilet paper holder, hand towel holder, hinges, and yes, the knob on the toilet is also oil rubbed bronze (as is the light fixture and the new hardware.

I found a tutorial to make these shelves here: http://littlenannygoat.blogspot.com/2010/03/make-your-own-floating-shelf-one-of-my.html
So fabulous. That is a great blog. So I informed my husband of this great tutorial and informed him he would be making it for me :) I painted, he hung.
Here it is with some leaves on it. It is a great shelf for warming up the room. This picture was taken a month ago, so I have more to show you soon :)

The final item I made for pattern testing for Izzy & Ivy was this messenger bag. I made this for Brayden's piano bag. He picked out the material.
I think one of the best thing about making your own bags is that you get to design your pockets. I made pockets for pencils, a pocket to fit the piano books, and a pocket to hold his notebook. Fabulous. He loves it and tells everyone about it :)
