Dear Santa

At first Boo said that Santa could just bring her whatever he wanted….until I explained that she might just get new socks and underwear.  She decided to write a letter…….complete with SKU number.

All she wants is American Doll #PF-1221….and if by chance Santa can’t find it by SKU number, she drew a picture of her.  I’m thankful for the SKU….I mean Boo’s drawing is great, but they aren’t exactly twinsies: [Read more…]

“With malice towards none, with charity for all…..”

Maybe the elf isn’t so bad…..

A few more photos….and I’m thinking I may need to retire him….I don’t want to be associated with Elf on the Shelf my whole life.

The really sad part? I’m hoping Boo doesn’t remember about the Elf this year!

Maybe I’ll do one more installment…..any special requests?

No Sew Thanksgiving Turkey Shirt (with Template Download)

Last night:

Boo: I REALLY need a turkey shirt to wear tomorrow.
Me: Is it a matter of life and death?
Boo: Yes.

How to make a NO SEW turkey shirt (free applique download) via lilblueboo.com #thanksgiving

 

So guess what we made late last night? Yep. A turkey shirt.  I uploaded my template in case you are in the same predicament for Thanksgiving Day!  All I did was take scrap fabric and apply Heat & Bond (fusible web) to the back. Then I cut out all my shapes and ironed them to the shirt. No sewing!

 

 

The finished shirt:
