My Latest Projects

I bought this at goodwill for 5 bucks.. it just needed a quick alteration... (Left side is baggy, Right is altered thanks to my serger)Throw pillow makeover 1
Throw pillow makeover 2
Wreath for more door. I sew clothes... so "crafting" is a new thing for me... Everyone thinks I am "crafty" but I am so not. Sewing requires a machine and crafts use glue. I bought my first glue gun to do Ruth's headbands and this wreath. Crafts are good for me because I can actually finish stuff like this... Sewing projects take me way longer and I get sick of them by the end of it.
I finally got paint for the frames that were the wrong color... I just need to hang these up and I will gradually put things in the frames... or not.. I don't feel like I have to but Eric thinks that's weird so I would be doing it to make him happy. I really want a frame that is big enough to frame Ruth's blessing dress. Someday. I have one more DIY project to show you for Ruth's room but I don't have a pic right now.

I made myself a moby wrap... it's good but it could be better if I could find the right fabrication... this one is stretchy but not enough... it needs more spandex in it. It's slim pickin's at my favorite fabric store at 101 Clement... but it's only $1 per yard so you can't beat that. Ruth's strawberry costume and throw pillow makeover #3 behind her.. (sorry you can't really see the pillow.. but Ruth is way more important)

Ruth's First Beach Trip

Yesterday I went to the Baker Beach below my apartment. I went with a few of my good friends. This was Ruth's first time ever going to the beach. It's crazy to think that we will live here long enough for her to run around and play in the sand at this beach.
Anyway, I originally made this swim suit for my niece Avery.. but Avery grew out of it.. and my sister Britney was cute enough to re-gift it back to me for Ruth. I also made my swim suit... which my post-prego body fits better in the upper half and worse in the lower half.. oh well.. work with what you've got right?

Ruth Etta's Blessing


Ruth's baby blessing day was a great day. Thank you to everyone who came, especially those who drove from Utah.

Mommy and Daddy love you pretty girl!

Ruth and her favorite Grandma Anderson.

Ruth with Grandma and Grandpa Ringer.

Ruth and friends. Pleasant surprise to see Samantha Dawn. Good thing Ruth didn't wear the same dress as Presley.. because that could have been embarrassing.

Thanks for coming Rach and Spence. Also, thanks for spoiling Ruth with cute outfits and helping with her blow outs.
Ruth loves Aunt Britney and her baby fetus cousin.

I don't have the best picture of her dress that I made her because I was in a hurry to get her ready and to church on time.. but thankfully Grandma Ringer took this one or I wouldn't have one at all. Thanks for the blanket Great Grandma Ringer!

I love you Baby Ruth. You are so sweet. You did great for your blessing. You were wide awake and you didn't even make a peep. And daddy didn't even have to use the MAM.
