Custom Outfits

January 12, 2008

I wanted the boys to look extra cute at Disney World, and since I can NOT sew, I set off to find others who could help me! This is what we ended up with…

My dear friend Tamara made us several things, but sadly, I only have a picture of one set. The boys wore these to Epcot – the fabric was perfect since it had children’s faces from all the different countries of the world. Tamara’s work is fabulous, and she is working on getting her store up! She makes awesome aprons for both adults and children as well as fabric goody bags and crayon totes.

These overalls were hand painted with a Little Einsteins theme by Kathy of Bedknobs-n-Broomsticks. They were a huge hit at the character meal we ate at that featured The Little Einsteins!

This next shirt was made by the fabulously talented and super sweet Lyssa of Sweet Bling-A-Doo Boutique. Lyssa does beautiful applique work, specializing in Disney stuff! She made several shirts for us, but this is the only good picture I have of one of the boys wearing one:

Lyssa also made both boys this shirt to wear to Disney’s Animal Kingdom:

And one like this for my almost two year old that was personalized with his name:

These adorable outfits were made by a seller on ebay who is no longer selling:

Altered Clipboard

This was a fun project for me to do! I altered a mini clipboard to use when getting autographs at Disney World. We got so many compliments on this!

Custom Shirts

Shirts I designed for us to wear at Disney World:

Another shirt:

And here is a picture of the boys in their shirts:

I designed these shirts and then had them printed by Zazzle. They did a fantastic job! The quality is excellent, and the turn around time was super fast. I also ordered photo stamps and coffee mugs from them and was very pleased with everything.

Going To Disney!

January 12, 2008

We surprised the boys with a trip to Disney World over the Christmas break! I wanted to do something creative to tell them about it, so I decided to make an altered board book that Jacob would open on Christmas day.

I designed all the pages on my computer – some of them I designed myself, and others were from Glenda Ketchum’s “The Most Wonderful Place On Earth – Mouse Scraps” digital scrapbooking kit. I used a blank board book from When I was done attaching the pages to the book, I applied a thin coat of mod podge to seal and protect.

The book was a hit, and the look of excitement on Jacob’s face as he read it was priceless!

Altered CD Ornaments

January 12, 2008

Here are a few altered CD ornaments I made:




These were really easy and fun to make! I used mini CDs (3 inches) so I think they would make super cute gift tags, too! I created the design on my computer, printed, adhered to the CDs and then applied a thin layer of mod podge to seal, protect, and give it a glossy finish.

Here are pictures of other ornament designs I created:

Teacher Gift

January 12, 2008

This is an altered clip board that I made as part of the Christmas gift we gave to Jacob’s teacher:

Back side:

This was super easy to make! Materials I used were a regular sized clip board, Amy Butler papers, coordinating ribbon, spray adhesive, mod podge, and 3-D flower stickers. First I sanded both the front and back of the clipboard so the pages would stick better. I printed the teacher’s name onto one of the papers with my laser printer, then covered the clipboard in the Amy Butler papers and ribbon for accents. I applied a thin coat of mod podge to seal and protect and let dry. As a finishing touch, I embellished the clip with 3-D flower stickers and tied coordinating ribbon to it, and wah-la, all done! I think it turned out super cute, and Jacob’s teacher LOVED it!
