Doodle book for Daddy

The daddy in our family doesn’t golf or fish, he doesn’t ride bikes or wear a tie so we have had a hard time with homemade gifts in the past. But the Daddy in this house is a major doodler and Asher is a huge fan of art and they will sit together on the weekend and draw pictures for each other. So this year for father’s day we decided to make daddy a personalized sketchbook.
This was a easy one to do in an afternoon. I took off the covers, put a couple layers of Gesso on them and then let Ash paint to his heart's content. Once that was dry we used sharpie paint makers to finish it off. Then I put the covers back on. Easy peasy. Just for fun I also took a digital flipbook.

Happy fathers day

New Shoes

I recently found a cool pair of shoes at old navy marked down to just $1.99. Sadly they were to small for Ash but for that price I had to get them anyway. Turns out they were the perfect size for Cam but I still wanted something similar for my kiddo.

I bought another pair of shoes from Target and used a Pentel Gel Roller to doodled all over them.

I’m thinking about coloring them in with my Inktense pencils but that might be over doing it. I might just save that for the next pair.

A little bit of Noodlehead

One of my friends recently adopted a baby boy. I knew that I wanted to make one of noodlehead’s divided baskets and I was especially excited because it gave me an excuse to use some fabric from the Architextures line. I fell in love with this fabric at QuiltCon a few months back. I was thrilled to see a line that is definitely boy and not babyish at all. The bricks aren’t part of the Architextures fabric line but I felt that it fit the style and theme really well.

This was my first time with the divided basket pattern and I’m really glad I picked this one up. I’ve always been interested in the geometry and construction of my products and this one was not a disappointment.

I also whipped together one of her diaper pouches cause they are great to throw in your purse or at your husband when he takes the baby.
