IKEA to the rescue

We just got an IKEA in Cinncinati this summer, YAY!
Anyway, I went shopping with some friends a few months ago and found these cute hanging baskets which are perfect for my girls hair ribbons (which were found floating all over the house since I used to just stuff them into a drawer). I paid $8.oo for the whole thing and now the ribbons are organized and even a little decorative. I love IKEA!

One Talented Lady

In RS we are making and filling diaper bags for a local charity and so I took the pattern to my mother when we visited ~since I am clueless when it comes to sewing and she is an amazing seamstress, I'm serious, we have enjoyed many quilts, pj's, dresses, crib bumpers, etc. made by my mother's hands.Needless to say, I showed her the pattern and within a few hours she had whipped one up. Then I told her I wanted to adjust some things and make one for myself and viola... it was done and look how cute it is.It is great to have such talent in the family. Thanks mom!
