Pre school nap mats by Lala

MissLayton and MissHadley were in need of nap mats for their first pre-school experience.

Ann Marie looked on Etsy and wow! Pricey to say the least, so of course she texted me and asked if I could make them.  Lala would love too!

Ann Marie picked up all the supplies and dropped them off at my house.


This is how I measure.  Don't you?

We inserted a minky covered little pillow for their tiny little heads.  I then turned everything inside out and started by sewing across the top and the sides to make one big cover for the quad folded insert.

I then sewed a velcro strip to the bottom opening and voila.   She can easily slip the cover off and throw it in the washer.


Now the fun part!  Practice nap time at my house.  MissLayton especially loved them.  MissHadley was not to sure, but gave it a try.  




 And even MissRaylyn joined in the fun and I think Lala will be making another one in the near future for her too.  


Success! Pre-school report card from week two said they both acutally fell asleep on them for a nap!

A peek at what has been keeping me busy

I have been a bit distracted lately.  Our master bathroom is undergoing a major remodel.  Gutted and now the renovations have started.  I wanted to go for a glamorous, vintage New Orleans look. 
We started with a herringbone, Carrera marble floor.... swooon.  The grout did dry a bit lighter, but I wanted the pattern to really pop, so went with a dark grey.

Peek of new furniture style sinks and super shiny chrome faucets.  Love the cross bar handles!
I will share more when this project is complete.  Hopefully, soon.

First Day 2014

MissHadley and MissLayton are giving Mom a few hours a couple days week to have some of her "own" time.  She told me her first day alone was mostly spent in meetings.  

They have started a two day a week preschool at a church near by their home.

They look ready to me and enjoyed their new lunchboxes.  Monogrammed of course.




I am sure they were of course the most precious not even two year olds in the room!

Blueberry Raspberry Lemon Cobbler

I just may try this one again.  Very, very easy and yum in my tum!
You see my portion control below, tiny ramikins.  Not the hubby, I came back in the kitchen and half the cobbler was gone!



Pinterest inspired.

One box lemon cake
1 can blueberry pie filling
1 bag frozen raspberries
one stick butter melted
chopped pecans

In a 9 x 13 pan
Layer fruit and stir together
(next time I would add pecans to this layer as not to brown during baking)
top with dry cake mix
sprinkle with melted butter
Bake 350 degree oven for 25-30 minutes until golden
