Cofessions of a Craft-aholic!

I found a blog I am SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO excited about that might end up being bad for me. It is called Dollarstorecrafts.com I AM ADDICTED and I just barely found it last night. I haven't made anything yet because I JUST found it and a Dollar store is 40 minutes from here. Maybe I can head out to one tomorrow or next week. I am so excited to try some of these super easy and fun ( not to mention affordable and freaking cute ) ideas. Poor Cody...our house is never gonna be clean again! haha

Speaking of crafting, I have pictures to share

Here are the presents I made for Colin's first birthday

Pants I made from an old baby blanket that hardly ever got used. This way it is nice and soft and I bought it SO long ago it basically cost nothing to make!



Guitar shirt! I got this template from a blog I found called Trey and Lucy. If you put that into Google I am SURE it will pop up. She has other cute things on her blog and shocker, she's mormon. I have found that 80 percent of the craft blogs I found are by Mormon stay at home moms. It makes me laugh.



I got this template from Trey and Lucy as well...


This I didn't get form anyone. It was all me. I wanted to make this a tie shirt but it had the pocket so my brain thought about Tuxedos and how they have the fabric in the pocket. I ended up not putting the tie on it because the fabric I used was not something I could iron on. I like the way it came out though.




I made a Buzz Lightyear blanket for Tyler and




A Buzz cape! He loves them.

Then I went to Walmart and bought some bandana's on sale and made this dress for Madison




So this dress probably cost me like 3 bucks to make. AWESOME
