Miss Nicole Creates!


I did it! I just listed my very first item on my new Etsy shop, Miss Nicole Creates! I've named it The Diana Bag, since my sister Diana was the inspiration for it. I had just finished making this...

....and she says, "I love it! Now can you make a Dsi XL case? Maybe in leopard print?" Sadly, I didn't get around to shopping for some cute leopard print fabric, but I did get this done today.

The Diana Bag

Pretty cute, huh? And it is my very first shop listing. Thanks Diana! Love you!

Adventures in Organization

Good morning blogland! I've recently been perusing through all the awesome blogs out there written by other busy stay at home moms, trying to find tips and tricks on keeping my house clean and in order. I have found some great ideas and have been trying to put them in play in my own home. Well, guess what I found out? It's hard. Well, at least it's hard for my lazy, procrastinating, wishes someone else would just come and do it for me, easily distracted self. I have spent the last 2 weeks cleaning and organizing each room in the house, but if you were to look at it right now you would never know it. The kids' playroom gets trashed within minutes of getting it straightened, the toys leak into the living room, and I start finding socks and shoes in strange places. AAAARRRRGGGG!!!! (think Charlie Brown). On the plus side, I think I've gotten my kitchen and laundry room under control and keeping up with 6 bodies worth of laundry has gotten a little easier. And I got this done!

Abby's Easter dress, or maybe her birthday dress, I haven't decided yet. Isn't it cute?!

The Baking Mom has a new name! I decided that name was just a little too specific, why should I limit myself with a label? So now I can basically blog about whatever I feel like. I've got a few projects that I've recently finished and will hopefully have the pictures ready to post soon. And of course Valentine's Day is coming up and I'm sure I'll be baking up some sweet treats to share!
