Got Booties?

So the other weekend we headed to Minnesota to visit my parents.   While visiting my mom was telling about a cute baby shoe pattern that she found online so we decided to each make a pair.  She found a pattern on Stardust Shoe blog for cloth shoes.  So we doug through my mom's many containers of fabric and made these two shoes from scraps she had saved.  These shoes were so fun and easy to make that we ended up making four pairs of little girl booties and three pairs of little boy booties all from scraps.  I am excited to give them as baby gifts!

Got Ink?

Maybe I should say got ink on something other than paper?  While at a city meeting last night, Eric let Toodles play with his pen in hopes of keeping her entertained and quite.  It worked for a bit until mom noticed that Toodles was doing art work on every piece of clothing she was wearing (her jeans, fleece, and onesie) and then took the pen away.  The good news is that my mom taught me a very dandy trick - when it comes to taking ink out of anything, rubbing alcohol is a must.  With a couple of cotton balls and Q-Tips and five minutes later all of Toodles art work was gone.
