I don't have to tell most of you how incredibly inspiring Miss Soulemama is but I thought her blog could use a little traffic help so I thought I should give it a little mention. I was especially giddy this morning after reading this post about their dining table set up with having everyone in the family claim their very own napkin ring. I've actually been muttering ""GENIUS" to myself all morning. We do cloth napkins too but I get icked out about accidentally mixing them up and cross contaminating gribblies with each other. Kind of like backwash. You know I love them all to bits but ... gross.
Another bit of inspiration from the Oprah of the crafty mommy blogging world is to embroider over an Edie original sketch then make a pillow case. We were so needing more pillows on our couch. Craig and I fight over the sad little two that came with the darn thing on movie nights. Craig then starts crying and says "when are you going to make some pillows?". So I made pillows. The back of the pillows are envelope style if you can imagine with three sweet little wood buttons with really pretty floral cotton fabric. Maybe I should get off my lazy tush and take a picture already.
I used up all the last bits of last year's Yard and Yardage sale fabric scores (just in time too. Next one is next month!) so I'm hoping Craig will be pleased with my frugally sustainable resourcefulness. There's now a pillow for a rainy spring day and one for a sunny summer morning. And Edie says when we have guests come over we can just flip them over so they can check out the buttons!
