DIY Turkey Placemats

I had been thinking about making these placemats ever since I made the carrot ones for Easter.  I had been thinking about just how cute they would look at the children’s table.  I had been gathering the supplies and had even cut all of the pieces needed. But, I had not sat down at the sewing machine and actually made them until this morning.  I was not going to let Thanksgiving come and go and not make these placemats!  My closet is full of half finished projects. Really great ideas just lying (laying?) there is bags needing to be finished.  I refused to let this be the fate of these turkeys!

They are super simple and so cute!

Something New for Playhouse Door

This week is dedicated to the transformation of the outside of the playhouse!!!  This weekend, she got a new paint job (with the help of my sweet family!)  You can see the before and after pics of the paint here.  I love the way the colors turned out.

A sort of inspiration room!

The front door was the first place to start!
