I love a cute tote!

Jonathan Adler recently put out the cutest new line of tote bags- I am especially coveting the yellow one.
Fun and practical...cheery with enough room for all your stuff.

Pennant banners

Memorial day weekend was so hot, we spent most of our time outside, and the boys spent most of their time in the baby pool.  My mom was in town, so I made quick use of having an extra pair of hands around.  I worked on a cute project- brightly colored pennant banners for the boys rooms.  This was about as easy as it gets.  I simply made a triangle template out of construction paper and used it as a guide to cut out my fabric triangles, then secured them together at the edges with a small "x", using cooking twine.  To personalize each one, I loosely drew letters on construction paper, cut them out, and glued them on the center flag.  Instant room upgrade!
