Happy Birthday, Sis!

For one of my sister's birthday's (back in February) I made her a case for her new hobby. She has recently started to knit and crochet things. Since Christmas she's finished (that I know of), a scarf, a few pairs of baby booties/mittens, and at least one hat.

Rumor had it that she needed a case for her hooks and needles. So I made a giant pencil pouch for her to keep some stuff in. She's a professional tuba player so I lined the inside with some music fabric.

Happy Birthday!

Chalkboard Paint

I had no idea you could make your own chalkboard paint. I should try it with some of the leftover paints we have in our garage.

Here is a link from Martha Stewart for uses and, more interestingly, making your own!
