I should really be in bed but I had to do a quick post. I took a trip to okadaya today my absolute favorite fabric store in Japan. And I spent way to much money on incredibly cute fabric. But what he dosen’t know can’t hurt him right? They have really cute pul here which is neat because im about to make a bunch of cloth diapers for my boys. Heres the PUL I bought: Well more specifically training pants for my oldest and diapers for Alex. I was really happy to have Mary along with me today she taught me how to read the kanji on the content label of the fabric (I can now tell if something is cotton linen poly or a blend!)
A Taggie Blanket for him as well:
And a Little diaper and wipee case to keep my purse neat:
I bought the little matchbook notepad from a very talented etsy seller see her shop here http://www.etsy.com/shop.php?user_id=5241847 They are the perfect accessory to my crayon rolls and I really love them. I mean what good are the crayons if you don’t have anything with you to draw on.
This morning this was the view from my backyard…
My sister posted new pictures of her jewelry on flickr…she is so talented so much more arttastic than I am haha. She really has a unique sense of style and in a good way not in the how do I say you have horrible taste without making you feel bad sort of way 🙂
I love her stuff http://www.etsy.com/shop.php?user_id=5110635
Ok I need to go to bed before I pass out face first into my keyboard.
I just wish I had a little girl and not 2 little boys.
So my day was set in stone after this find Im still bubbly from my score! But on top of that I went to our toy store (which just about never carries anything worthwhile) My freind had told me she had gotten a great deal on a couple of toys the other day and my sons birthday is comming up.
Now I have been wanting to get my son a play kitchen for some time now but my husband is a stubborn ox and refused to get this for our son over and over again. But much to my delight today there was a play kitchen for sale in our local toy store and not only did they have one in stock but this happened to be the day that my husband decided to cave into my pleas! What a wonderful wonderful day!
After this attempt and my 2 year olds test drive of it. I decided I could improve upon the design and that a certain piece of dinosaur fabric that I had lying around was destined to become my second attempt and that my friends 3 year old who loves dinosaurs should get to enjoy this one.
Now I think I have an idea for the perfect crayon roll and this one will be going to my sons birthday twin Lucy just as soon as I decide which fabric should be transformed.
