Halloween Baking with CVS

I’m a lucky duck (is that what I should be for Halloween??)! I recently received a great goodie box from my friends at CVS!

CVS-Cupcakes-Main-ImFeelinCrafty

And included in my goodie box was the fixin’s for these fun cupcakes!! Raise the Dead Cupcakes!

CVS-Cupcakes-Box-ImFeelinCrafty

Did Halloween sneak up on you this year? It did in this house! So getting these great supplies from CVS was perfect! We decided to first try the Raise the Dead cupcakes!

CVS-Cupcakes-Baking-ImFeelinCrafty

We even stirred the batter with the fun spatula! We used the packaged cupcake liners. We did add smashed Oreos (not included in the decorating kit, but easily available at CVS) for the graveyard dirt! Crafty, huh!?

CVS-Cupcakes-EatenCupcake-ImFeelinCrafty

They were so yummy that not only did the kiddo eat them, the dog snuck in the kitchen and ate 4!! She is in the doghouse for sure!

A Superhero Dog Cape

And not just any Superhero….

DogCape-Main-ImFeelinCrafty

Wonder Woman! Yes, as you know, I have a thing for the woman with the invisible plane!

DogCape-4-ImFeelinCrafty

This is actually a Christmas present that I never showed you. On my son’s Christmas List, there is a space to fill out for Santa to bring something to a friend. Last year the kiddo asked Santa to bring our dog, Miss Gilbert, a Wonder Woman cape. And that he did. Santa is good like that with handmade gifts.

DogCape-3-ImFeelinCrafty

So, I’ve studied the cape and I’ll tell you what I can about hoe he made it. It looks as though he downloaded a WW logo from online, like this one maybe. And then cut it out of felt. The yellow pieces are sewn onto the black and then black was sewn onto the red cape fabric.

DogCape-5-ImFeelinCrafty

We do have our own Elf on the Shelf, so I can only figure that he’s the one that measured Miss G for Santa and his helpers. They probably took measurements down her back and around her tummy. The cape goes about half way around her body or so. Then the strap that goes around her tummy and neck are both secured by Velcro.

DogCape-Walking-ImFeelinCrafty

I can’t find the pattern he used. (He must have kept it in case there are more requests for this year.) If your interested in the pattern let me know and I can probably recreate it. Actually I’m going to pretty soon, because she needs one for the rain!

DogCape-Back-ImFeelinCrafty

The little lady seems to not mind it too much. Or at all actually. As long as she can sniff everything on our walks, she doesn’t seem to care what she’s wearing! I’m thinking she needs a rain coat one, too!

I do love how Santa really keeps to the list that the kiddo at our house writes. And I know it’s special to the kiddo to open the handmade presents that he has requested!

Happy Easter!

I hope everyone had a happy Easter! We did! A nice relaxing day and some Easter egg hunting!

Easter-1-ImFeelinCrafty

At the last minute we decided to join some friends at their church and I realized the kiddo didn’t really have anything to wear… So what does any crafty mom do? I sewed up some pants, made a bow tie and did some shopping!

Easter-Pow-ImFeelinCrafty

I have been meaning to make the kiddo another pair of Surfer Slacks. I was sewing something else and as I was ironing my eye struck the seersucker on my shelf. So I put two and two together and out came a seersucker surfer slack!

Easter-PantsCloseup-ImFeelinCrafty

I think I mentioned before, but the knit elastic waist is a huge hit with the kiddo! I love that you can dress them up or dress them down.

Easter-Pants-ImFeelinCrafty

Then I needed a spring sweater. Um… Has anyone been shopping for a spring sweater for boys lately? I went to 5 stores. Nothing. Absolutely Nothing. So I switched gears when I saw this little jacket at Old Navy. Totally ended up hitting the spot!

Easter-End-ImFeelinCrafty

So I finished the pants, the kiddo went to bed and I knew a bow tie would tie it all together… So, a quick little sew and some hot glue… And you have a bow tie! I’ll make a quick tutorial to show ASAP!

Easter-Closeup-ImFeelinCrafty

He loved it! Having everyone he saw tell him how handsome he looked helped! He didn’t take it off all day!

Easter-3-ImFeelinCrafty

After the egg hunts, I asked if he wanted to take off his jacket and he said no. Then he did, but I found it on the floor and not in his closet where he was supposed to put it. He didn’t put it away, because he wanted to wear it to do our late afternoon dog walk!

Easter-Duo-ImFeelinCrafty

We had fun getting dressed up and enjoying the sun on our lovely Easter Sunday! Hope you did too!

Mr Peabody and Sherman Opens Today!!

Are you excited to see it? I was!!

1382953548_mr-peabody-sherman-2014-wallpaperRecently I was contacted and offered tickets to go see an advanced screening of the new movie Mr. Peabody and Sherman! Of course I said yes, because if you follow me on IG, you know that the kiddo and I love going to see movies! And this time we took Dad along!

MrPeabody-MaxMovie-ImFeelinCrafty

MrPeabody-MaxMovieDad-ImFeelinCrafty

We braved the end of 5 o’clock traffic to head north for a 50 minute, 10 mile drive to the theatre! Only to get there and see the LONG line! I got in line. The end of the line… Then I read my instructions that said to check in with someone and my husband saw this lady… And yep, the lady was the right person to talk to and the line wasn’t for us, ‘cuase we were with ‘The Press.’ How fun!

MrPeabody-Press-ImFeelinCrafty

What I didn’t know was that Mr. Peabody was a cartoon from back in the day! Did you know that? Well, now I do! But when we went, I didn’t know how smart this dog is or what crazy adventures he’d go on!

Mr_peabody_and_sherman_xlg

The movie synopsis is this:

Mr. Peabody, the most accomplished dog in the world, and his mischievous boy Sherman, use their time machine – the WABAC – to go on the most outrageous adventures known to man or dog. But when Sherman takes the WABAC out for a joyride to impress his friend Penny, they accidentally rip a hole in the universe, wreaking havoc on the most important events in world history.  Before they forever alter the past, present and future, Mr. Peabody must come to their rescue, ultimately facing the most daunting challenge of any era:  figuring out how to be a parent. Together, the time traveling trio will make their  mark on history.

peabody-an-sherman-collage

They go so many places! Some seem to be a bit more fun that others, because they are always getting into some sort of mischief!!

MrPeabody-Pass-ImFeelincrafty copy

And it’s in 3D! My husband thinks it’s the best 3D movie he’s seen! And I agree, the 3D was perfect!! The effects were just so much fun! The kiddo didn’t want to take off his glasses the whole way home!

We really enjoyed our family night out at the movies! The movie is a kids movie, yes, but Mom and Dad had quite a few laughs! There were so many jokes about these historic events that the kiddo didn’t really get, but they got a laugh out of the parents! And just so many funny and silly things that got some good laughs from the kiddo!

peabody-sherman-banner

And be sure to check out their website for cute downloads and games and videos and paper dolls! There’s a set of Find the Difference picture games. Max LOVES those games right now!

If you could venture back in time with Mr. Peabody and Sherman in the WABAC, where would you go? Wherever it is, you should start by heading to the theatre to check this awesome father, dog, son adventure!

Happy New Year!

I hope yall all had a wonderful New Years Eve! We have a tradition of always going to Tacoma’s zoo and seeing the zoolights, so that’s what we did! Do you have a favorite NYE tradition???

2013Favorites-ImFeelinCrafty

I thought I’d welcome in 2014 with a look back at my favorite projects from 2013! I’ve been reading a lot of other blogs and it seems like I’m not the only one that gets into a mood thinking that I didn’t create too much… But once you sit and look at your whole blog from the past year, I’m reminded that I made A LOT! Yeah!

And my favorites are….

The crazy colorful outfit the kiddo and I made in January for the Project Run and Play Sew Along.

The I Love You Jacket I made for the kiddo in February.

The Super Hero Cape t-shirt tutorial (you’ll see a superhero theme throughout this year!) I made for the kiddo and Go To Sew in March!

One of my all time favorite projects was the Fox Skirt in April (for my friend April’s daughter!).

The wonky star quilt I made, with the help of my Nurture Circle, in May.

The low volume, ‘Lone Star’ pillowcase I made for a swap partner in June.

The little overalls I designed for a friend’s son adoption in July.

I really loved how this needle book turned out that I made for another swap in August.

The Flash costume in September! I didn’t blog about it until October, but technically I made it in September….

And the Hulk Costume in October!

The kiddo and I really loved our melted bead necklaces we made in November.

And last but not least, I loved our Jack and Jill pj’s I made in December!

What was your favorite project that you made last year??? Or do you have a favorite that I made? I’d love to hear about it!!

An Unplanned Blogging Break, kinda

I don’t know if you’ve noticed or not, but I haven’t been blogging on my usual schedule lately. Have you noticed? I’m kinda curious!

Vacations-Main-ImFeelinCrafty

I’ve seen a few other bloggers take an August break from blogging and I thought to myself, that’s a good idea, but then didn’t plan on it. But my family and I have gotten bitten by the end of summer travel bug and I haven’t been able to keep up with my blogging like I usually do because we’ve been off having a fantastic August!

I don’t usually share too much about my life outside of crafting and sewing on this blog, but since I’ve been a bit sporadic this month, I thought I’d show you what I’ve been up too!

Vacations-PenrosePt-ImFeelinCrafty

The first weekend of this month, we headed ended up with a random camp spot at this place that we probably would never have picked out for ourselves, but we had a good time! It was down on the Hood Canal, a bit south and west of Seattle. Max’s first tent camping experience! No that he’s new to camping! Oh, no, he’s been going since he was about 6 months. We usually have a little trailer where we camp. And I found a MASSIVE amount of sand dollars! I’ve never found a full sand dollar on the west coast. We also love our happy face rock!

Vacations-MtRainier-ImFeelinCrafty

Then we went to Bellingham, a nice getaway, but nothing spectacular. And then came the most fun weekend… Mt Rainier and Mt St Helens! Not long ago the kiddo had compared something to Mt Rainier and I realized that he had never been there! So we went! And the little kiddo climbed almost 1000 feet up Mt Rainier! It was awesome! I’ve wanted to see a marmot for YEARS and now I can say I saw one!

Vacations-MtStHelens-ImFeelinCrafty

We stayed in a teepee! How cool is that? I’d seen it last year and knew we had to check it out. It just happened to be right between the two mountains. So the next day we headed to Mt St Helens. I thought it would be a little drive in, look around and drive back. Um…. It was that, but so much more than that. I was shocked at how cool it was. We went in through the blast side and the force of nature, 20 years later, is still magnificent! That white stuff in the lake… is trees. Thousands of trees uprooted from the blast! And we found a million frogs! Some still tadpoles. A fantastic science lesson for the kiddo!

Vacations-East-ImFeelinCrafty

We had such a great time that we came home on Monday night, figured out a road trip for the next weekend, and headed out again on Saturday. This time we headed east, to Eastern Washington. Again. Amazing! It’s so amazing how Seattle is this lush green place that you think of when you think of the Pacific Northwest. But the state changes dramatically as you drive over the Cascades Mountains! We headed east, visited friends, went fossil hunting and did some more camping! I was just in awe of the changing landscape the whole time! And back home on Tuesday night!

Vacations-last-ImFeelinCrafty

Soooo…. See why I haven’t been crafting and sewing too much this month? I hope you don’t mind! We did collect all sorts of things for crafting though. I just might have a sand dollar craft coming up…. And we collected a lot of driftwood down by the teepee for Driftwood Monsters and then we’re going to do a little crafting with our fossils too! Fun things coming up!

In short, I didn’t take a full on break, but I’ve been busy having a blast with the family and the blog hasn’t been top priority! Summer is winding down and I’ll be back full force in September with fun things!

Did you do much traveling this summer?

Let’s Talk About Teeth, Baby… Clean Teeth! And a Giveaway!

Let’s talk about you and me… (hearing the 90’s beat? Sorry, I don’t know where that came from….) Anyway….

ToothCare-Main-ImFeelinCrafty

I was recently contacted by GreenRubino, the PR folks for Washington Dental Service, asking me if I’d like to write a post about kids dental health. I have to admit, the timing was spot on! We’d just been camping with friends and had a pretty long conversation about our kids dental hygiene! I mean, how often do you talk about that while camping? Then I get home and got this email. Kinda odd, right? The timing was just too perfect to say no!

ToothCare-Package-ImFeelinCrafty

So then came the new toothbrush! Washington Dental Service sent the kiddo his very own Sonicare Kid’s Brush! I can’t tell you… I’ve never seen a kid more excited about a toothbrush! I wish I had had my camera, but this was one moment that I didn’t have it ready! He was stoked! It makes fun noises, it’s colorful and you can change the colors!

ToothCare-Brush3-ImFeelinCrafty

It’s summer and sometimes routines get off track, but brushing our teeth is something that always stays in the loop! Even when we’re camping! (hence our camping conversation!) Did you know that, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), tooth decay remains the most common chronic disease among children. The CDC recently reported that tooth decay affects more than one-fourth of U.S. children ages 2–5 and half of those ages 12–15. Yuck! I had no idea! Luckily, tooth decay and gum disease are nearly 100 percent preventable –even during summer vacations.

Dr. Ron Inge, Dental Director at Washington Dental Service, recommends the following tips for keeping our teeth sparklin’ clean this summer!

  • ·         Pack properly. Be sure to pack extra travel toothbrushes, toothpaste and floss in multiple bags or purses where you can get to them easily. In case you wake up in-transit or lose your luggage, you will still have a chance to keep your smile bright, white and clean.
  • ·         Protect your toothbrush. Toothbrush caps are great for protecting brush bristles from germs and damage from being packed in your bag. Once you arrive at your destination though it’s best to uncap it. Covering wet bristles can trap moisture and encourage bacteria growth.
  • ·         Bring disposable products. If you will be traveling in a place where you won’t have access to clean water or a sink, taking steps to clean your teeth are still important. Be sure to pack floss and look for products like disposable toothbrushes or tooth wipes, which don’t require paste or water. These can be a great resource in a long car-ride or a delayed flight at an airport.
  • ·         Watch what you eat. While on vacation, people tend to change their eating habits and indulge themselves. The increased exposure to sugar can affect your teeth. Try to limit the number of times your family enjoys sweets while away from home. Chew sugar-free gum sweetened with xylitol on long flights or car rides to help stimulate saliva production and rinse away food particles.
  • ·         Pack healthy snacks. Pack a cooler or a bag of snacks, but be selective. Choose tooth-friendly foods like carrots, celery and apples or healthy snacks like string cheese, yogurt, whole grain crackers or plain nuts. Pass on soda and sugary drinks and opt for water instead.
  • ·         Rinse with water. Even if all you have is water, rinsing well after eating or drinking can help rinse away sugars.

So let’s just talk about another reason I decided to elaborate on this subject. We go camping a lot during the summer and I always just throw our toothbrushes in the toiletry bag. Every time I look at the toothbrushes. I look at the bag. And I say to myself, I should probably put the brushes in their own bag. Then I throw them in the toiletry bag anyway and off we go.

ToothCare-BrushHolder2-ImFeelinCrafty

Right about the same time I heard from The Washington Dental Service, I saw The Train to Crazy’s tutorial for a perfect, quick and easy solution to traveling with a toothbrush! I made our travel case in about 5 minutes!

ToothCare-BrushHolder1-ImFeelinCrafty

And it’s perfect! It keeps our brushes separate and clean. And it’s soooo easy to wash!

ToothCare-Bracelet2-ImFeelinCrafty

And what’s an I’m Feelin’ Crafty post without a project?? Here’s a fun one that they shared with us! What do you do with your old toothbrushes? DId you know that you are supposed to change them every three months?

Mid-Oct_-Toothbrush-Tidbits_FULL

I usually keep ours for cleaning grout and little spots around the house. But that’s no fun, huh? Making bracelets sounds like much more fun! And it was! And I never would have thought of this!

Turn your Old Toothbrush Into a Fun Recycled Bracelet

Toothbrush Bracelet Info Graphic_11x17

You can download directions here.

We had a fun time making these! So first you have to remove the bristles….

ToothCare-Plyers-ImFeelinCrafty

It took us a little while to figure out the key to it. At first we were only getting about one bristle at a time and I knew we weren’t going to work on it for days at a time!

ToothCare-bristles-ImFeelinCrafty

So what I figured out was that you use the needle nose pliers, grab a bunch of bristles down low, and roll the pliers over. Then the whole batch comes out at once!

ToothCare-Boiling-ImFeelinCrafty

Then boil the brushes like the instructions say. The instructions also say to use the simple plain toothbrushes. It’s true! I had grand plans of using our super man brushes, etc… Nope! They were too stiff. We boiled and boiled and reboiled when Dad came home, cause he’s ‘stronger than Momma’ (according to the kiddo). Still they didn’t bend well. Then we found the cheapo brushes. Perfect! much easier and faster, just like the directions say! Imagine!

ToothCare-Bracelet-ImFeelinCrafty

They are actually quite fun!

And not only is doing these toothbrush activities fun, but it also makes them more important in the kiddos eyes! He’s so excited to have his new one, but he’s also making sure we take better care of the brushes and our teeth!

Vintage Quilt Looking!

I’d for the title to be shopping, but it’s just looking! As you know, we recently took our yearly trip to my home in Alabama and our family beach house.

beachhouse-ImFeelinCrafty

See that screened in porch?? That’s where I LOVE to sew and where I was telling you about in this post.

montgomery-ImFeelinCrafty

But we didn’t start off our visit at the beach. We started in Montgomery visiting my Dad and Stepmom. Where we had our yearly trip to the zoo and Max had his first bowling adventure with the funny shoes!

MontQuilts-ImFeelinCrafty

There was a day or two when the grandparents had to work, so the kiddo and I went and checked out some flea markets! The kiddo got lots of vintage books and I got to look at some great quilts! That blue hexi one was my favorite! I’m still in love with it and I still want it. I even negotiated the price a little, but they only came down from $175 to $150… It’s totally worth $150, but I didn’t have it to be spending on a quilt top this year! The other quilts were fantastic too. And, Ok, I couldn’t help but through in this AMAZING vintage dress too!

VintageHexis-ImFeelinCrafty

I didn’t get the hexi quilt, but I did find these hexi flowers that were way more in line with my budget, so I brought those home! And I’m pretty sure they are leftovers from the blue hexi quilt top!

moseT-ImFeelinCrafty

Also at this place I found these amazing paintings by the Southern Folk Artist Mose T that I love! We don’t have any of his painting in our little folk/outsider art collection and I wanted to add one of these. But like the quilt tops, they were slightly out of my price range for this trip and they didn’t’ come home with me… sad, but true…

beach-ImFeelinCrafty

Then the rest of trip looked more like this everyday!

beachquilts-ImFeelinCrafty

We did leave the beach one day and headed inland to do some shopping. We were supposed to be going to a fabric shop, but somehow we missed it and they closed before we could get there….. I guess that’s what happens when your the only girl shopping with 2 boys! Instead we found a few more antiquey flea markets and these were some of the quilts we found! These were more my price range, but I wasn’t in love like I am with the blue one up top.

beachplaying-ImFeelinCrafty

Then we finished all the trip like this again! Check out that amazing storm cloud! We watched it roll down the beach. We were going to wait it out, but it also brought wind and freaked out the little guy. As we were headed to the car we realized it was a HAIL cloud! Once we made it to the car, packed the car and got in, it was over! I’d never been hailed on at the beach!

I’ll have to keep ya posted on what I do with those vintage hexi flowers I found! Do you have any summer plans?

Thriftin’ on Thursday!

Ok, so I didn’t actually go thriftin’ today, but I thought I’d tell you about our adventures! Last weekend we were supposed to have our family pictures taken in Tacoma. So we headed out and then found out, on the way there (it’s about 45 minutes or so from here), that our photographer didn’t actually put us in his calendar. Even though he gave the date, etc… Anyway…. We ended up having a great time together after all!

photo4

As we were turning around we decided to check out the Antique Row in downtown Tacoma. Our first little find was the Graffiti Garage. We love some graffiti… I’ll admit it, we do like it! It’s probably not the best thing to teach our child, but hey! I love the colors with the pink and yellow one above. Unknown Artist…  It was pretty inspiring to me. My husband and I hatched a plan of me making a quilt and then he adds a stencil to it!

Thriftin-MandDs-I'mFeelin'Crafty

And the guys posing in front of more….

Then we headed to some shops! My son kept getting the good deals. Free bracelets (those that he’s holding in the picture above), discounted butterflies, a free stained glass picture…. He’s cute! What can I say?

Thriftin-Figures-I'mFeelin'Crafty

This one store had all these fairy tale figures from an old playground at one of Tacoma’s parks. They were sooooo cool! But so out of our price range. oh, well…. They were even inspiring and my husband and I were thinking of ways to make our own! MAybe a tutorial one day?? Who knows! (don’t hold your breath though!)

Thriftin-Group-I'mFeelin'Crafty

And here’s all of our loot! The stained glass piece is kinda cool. Especially for free. It does have a little broken part. but maybe we can fix it. Or it just becomes backyard art and we’re fine with the flaw.

Thriftin-Nativity-I'mFeelin'Crafty

The print of the nativity is pretty cool. The lady said it was from the early 1900’s. Who knows. I just liked it! If you know anything about it, please let me know.

Thriftin-books-I'mFeelin'Crafty

Some cool books that I can ‘t wait to read. The kid doesn’t seem so interested!

Thriftin-SuperHeros-I'mFeelin'Crafty

But the superhero’s on the other hand. They are a hit.

Thriftin-InvisibleGirl-I'mFeelin'Crafty

And check out Invisible Girl! Can you see her? Isn’t she cool!

Thriftin-Butterfly-I'mFeelin'Crafty

Then my son found these butterflies and HAD TO HAVE THEM. He wants to make a butterfly quilt. hmmm… A small one he said. So these are the ones he picked out.

Thriftin-Quilt-I'mFeelin'Crafty

Then the next shop we went into had this beautiful butterfly quilt! I figured, hey, let’s just buy a butterfly quilt… But alas, it needed a LOT of work and was out of my price range, so I left it there and came home with my son’s butterflies instead! But how funny.  Right after the kiddo comes up with the butterfly quilt idea, we find one!

We had a good day and found some fun stuff. We’re going back in June to actually have our pictures taken! I’ll keep posted on that.. ha!

Did you get out and about and do anything fun this past weekend? Or are you doing anything this weekend? It’s supposed to be beautiful here in Seattle! 80 degrees! YEA! For 2 days! YEA!

Happy Easter!

I hope everyone had a wonderful Easter with family and friends! I know we did!

EasterCake-I'mFeelin'Crafty

I had planned a bunch of crafty Easter posts, but that didn’t happen. At all. My poor crafty kid missed out on Easter crafts this year. Recovering from this surgery has taken much longer than I was expecting. I’m doing well and moving around, but my moving around is pretty slow going.

EasterEggs-I'mFeelin'Crafty

One of the Easter crafts I had planned was decorating super hero Easter eggs. But the planning fizzled and we ended up with the regular ‘ole dying technique. Then one day I came home and looky who I found in the Easter basket! Spider Man!

EggDecorating-I'mFeelin'Crafty

A couple of funnies from our day…

Garland-I'mFeelin'Crafty

I don’t know what possessed me to buy Peeps this year. I don’t know if I ever have, actually. I think I was curious to see if my son would like them. He found them in his Easter basket and his first response was, ‘Hey! We can make a garland out of these!’ I love the craftiness in this kid!

Melted-I'mFeelin'Crafty

The sun has been shining in Seattle. When the sun starts to shine and temps rise, the city breaks out into thinking it’s summer. Most of us forget that it won’t last for long and the rain will be back, but we enjoy it just the same. So needless to say that since we don’t see it so much, we forget what it does. As in keeping things warm. The chocolate bunny got put away ’til later… in the sun…. Oops!

Superwoman-I'mFeelin'Crafty

OK, obviously you know that super hero’s are a big thing at our house… Well, Look what the Easter bunny brought to Momma! We needed a little girl super power going on here and especially one that has her own invisible jet! I’ve ALWAYS wants an invisible jet. And now I have one! YES!!!! And so what if the box says it’s only for 1 to 4 year olds. hmph!

EggHunt-I'mFeelin'Crafty

Friends-I'mFeelin'Crafty

We had a lot of good times this weekend. And it ended with an another Easter egg hunt with our good friends (and their crafty mom.. check out the bunny bags she had them make), good food, sun and just enjoying our families! Hope you had the same kind of weekend!
