' Sisters, What!

Mommy and Me Striped and Floral Shirts | January Sewing Challenge

Matching shirts are fun for mama and girl, but hard to find. So why not just make them! They can be easy and quick to make. 
 I really love sewing for my kiddos. There are so many fun and cute things to make for them. Like these dinosaur sweat shirts or these soft play cube toys or this Alphabet matching game, I could go on (see more HERE). But I decided I needed to do a little more sewing for myself, so I made a personal goal in January to sew something for me every month (you can see past things I've made for me HERE).

Edible Chocolate Play Dirt and Mini Plastic Trucks

For hours of fun, this edible dirt doesn't have any added sugar and is a great inside activity for cold winter day inside activities or really hot summer day indoor activities.

I was going through old pictures and came across the kids playing with edible chocolate play dirt. They loved it so much and played with it and their mini plastic trucks for a long time. I even stored it in the fridge for them to play with during the month that I made it.

The best part is that it's looks like dirt but all of the ingredients are edible and there is no sugar added. Honestly though, the kids didn't want to eat it, but just loved having a place for their mini plastic tractors and mini plastic dinosaurs.

Sometimes I'm really great at getting things done months in advanced and other times I wait until the last minute. Things that really matter, like Valentines day, I can get done way in advanced 😉. Actually, it's mostly been the past few years that I've been on top of things, and mostly because my two oldest understand and constantly ask me about doing Valentines. Last year they picked out Airplanes and Bubbles

I don't typically bother with Valentines day decor, mostly because I'm still trying to get over Christmas still. But as my kids have gotten older, they really love to celebrate each holiday and it's fun to put out some decoration for them.

Well, I saw on Kailo Chic's blog her faux wood love letters and loved the simplicity of them and decided they looked easy enough to make myself. And sure enough, they were super easy! I did do a couple things different than hers though, I painted the outside of the letters white and I used a heart filled with succulents for the 'O'.

Camping is Intense DIY Camping Shirt

Are you a camper? we used to camp all the time...before we had kids that is. Then camping got a little more intense for us 😉 and we have gone less often. But even though we don't go as much, when my husband or I use the word "intense" in any way, one of us is bound to say some joke about camping and tents.

 It's been a while since I've crocheted anything. Like this chunky scarf and winter headband might be the last thing I've made. Or the last thing I can remember. But I've been needing some more headbands since I wear them while running during the winter.
