Hmmm... What Can I Make Today!

So I go through these phases of feeling crafty every once in awhile, so I thought I would share some of the projects I've been working on.

First off I made Lyida a chair! I've been wanting to get one for her for the longest time now since she sit's in every small chair she can find at any of her friends houses. She loves having one just her size and I knew she would love to have one of her own. But as I started my search for one I was quickly disappointed by how expensive they are, even ones at consignment stores (which looked kind of dirty as well). So as I was boucing sweet emree to sleep on my new yoga ball I saw an empty costco size diaper box just lying on the floor and I thought to myself.... "Self?" "Yes" "You should totally make your own little chair out of that diaper box!" "That is a great idea McCall!"

So that's how it started...

As you can see it may not last that very long, we will see how long the cardboard and glue can hold out. But I started by putting the cut diaper box on top of another box, using tape to hold it together. Then to stable out the sides I used some old books that we won't be reading for awhile at least... We had an old pillow that I could use for the cushion and some pink and green fabric I had laying around.

So.... with the use of some scotch tape, a glue gun, and some yarn, Lydia finally has her chair!
It makes me so happy to see her sitting in it, which she does quite often and I love how it literally cost me nothing, by just using things I had around the house and a little creative juice.

I'm a little proud of it if you can't already tell...so just wanted to share what I've been up to lately along with taking care of two sweet and sometimes crazy emotional girls. :)

Oh... JD wanted me to post this to see if anyone could guess what it is. So can anyone guess?

Here is the finished project!

The second project that i have been working on I got from Pinterest.. It's just scrapbook paper and some cloth in a painted over frame and each day you can write on the glass with a dry erase marker what you love about your spouse, then wipe it off and write something else. I would have written something on it for the photo but we don't have a black dry erase marker quite yet.

Funny Sunday

It's been awhile since I posted on Funny Sunday, but I thought this was pretty funny... and cute.

If you didn't think that was funny maybe this will be:

I opened up my computer and much to my surprise I found that it had been used as a coloring book by some toddler who will be unnamed at this time.

Happy 3rd Anniversary

The 26th of December was our 3rd Anniversary, so we decided to shnaz up and go out on the town. First we went to Havana Rumba, which has a great atmosphere with a live Cuban band, and we might have stood up and danced our little hearts out if Emree wasn't being such a punk. (Yes we took Emree with us, but we did leave Lydia behind. Don't worry, we are going to see Fiddler on the Roof in a couple months without the two, there's just not a lot of events going on the day after Christmas)
Next we stopped in at Sweet n Swirly, a frozen yogurt gig that offered 100's of topping choices.

McCall's blood glucose reached well over 500mg/dL with this tasty heart attack.
My brain actually is overdosing on sugar right about now, I was in a state of stupor for well over 3 hours.
We headed off to the alley where we had a competitive game of bowling. No one lost their tempers and all was blissful...
We came home and watched a movie from Red Box called Sarah's Key that was a depressing movie about the Holocaust. We were so depressed after the movie that we decided to call it quits for the evening.
Love you my one and only sweat pea! Happy 3rd Anniversary!
