Pink Dresses

I wanted to make some Valentine-esq dresses for the girls, and I wanted to do it using only stuff I already had. I used the same pattern for each dress. I don't love the pattern itself and won't ever use it again, but the dresses are cute. Above is Kaitlyn's.

With McKenna's, I had issues. I thought I was all out of pink material, so I used this green. I had the dress almost done and just really disliked the green--it was way too much green. So I scavenged through my stuff and found more pink. I then thought about how to add the pink and make it look better. I had to pick the bodice/skirt seam to add the pink in, and it took a long time, but it was worth it.

Now it looks like a cute princess dress instead of some mint nightmare. I forgot to take a picture of it done. So here are some pictures of the moving target.

Leggings Leggings Everywhere!

Here are my latest leggings.

I love these with the ruffle bottom. Kaitlyn loves them, too.

Coloring Books

This was a simple creation. I want the kids to be doing more church-related activities during church. So coloring is great, so long as they are coloring church pages. I just want their minds to be somewhat on the purpose of church :) 

I printed off a whole bunch of scripture story coloring pages and had them bound. I also laminated a title page and back page to help keep the coloring pages from getting smashed.

I printed most of mine from You have to look around--don't settle for what you initially find. You can get lots more if you look around. If you have certain stories you want, you can also Google it. So if you wanted a Daniel and the Lion's den coloring page, you Google "Daniel and the Lion's Den coloring page" and you would get some options!

This website: has most of what has been published on the Friend's website linked, so even if you can't find it through the Friend, you can find it through this site.

The kids have loved their coloring books! I like it because I tell them the story about what they are coloring if they can't tell me.

Scripture Bags for Kids

The kids got some scriptures for Christmas, so last month I made bags for them to carry them nicely in. Here they are.
