Crayon Holster Sash


I saw this very cool crayon holder online and just had to give it a try!  Well it was easier than I expected even though I made my own bias tape.  Josh sure loves it and now Cammie wants one (except in girl colors).

Kindergarten Thanksgiving Feast





Ahh the wonder and magic of the holiday season has begun!  Joshua had a wonderful time earning feathers for his indian hat, decorating his shirt and making his bead necklace.  His indian name Quiet Storm was well chosen by Ms. Amy and the class. I miss the days when Cammie was this age but my big girl is growing up.  3rd grade got to eat lunch in their room and decorate firetruck cookies.  Being room mom for Joshua this year I missed her party but she had a blast!!!

My Etsy Shop is Open!!!

    It's finally here!  I've posted a few items on my Etsy shop www.cammielalmb.etsy.com .  Just click on the blue Etsy button to the right of this post to go directly to my shop.  Here are a few of the things available.  Tissue holders, iPod or Camera holders and Crayon Holders. 





Etsy is a website that supports people who wish to sell handmade or vintage items.  Rather than make your own website up from scratch you can pay etsy a small fee and they offer a very easy format to list and sell your items. I love the fact that it only allows handmade or vintage.  As an etsy shopper I can tell you that you definitely won't find things they offer in department stores. Handmade and vintage things hold a special  charm for me and seem to have a little extra something when giftgiving.  Give the site a chance this shopping season and see what you can find.

My all time favorite blog has to be Skip to my Lou!!!  This is her post today and I had to share it.  Please visit  www.skiptomylou.org  for everything crafting, sewing, cooking, gift giving, and well everything.

How to make a Pilgrim Bonnet out of paper


I am thinking these would be cute at the kids table for Thanksgiving! It could be a simple craft before eating or just have them ready made sitting at each place. I'll have to make the hat for boys later!

Spencer Auto Repair Now Selling Cammielamb Goodies

    My incredibly sweet brother in-law Tommy Spencer has some of my products available in the lobby of his business Spencer Auto Repair at 5403 Pleasant View Memphis, Tennessee 38134 (901)383-2681
    Yes, he is a very respectable and talented mechanic.  The kind of man that I, as a woman, would never worry about taking advantage of my limited/non-existent knowledge of all things mechanical.  The Memphis Zoo even employs him to work on all the trams and the train you can ride in the farm area.  Check him out at http://www.spencerautorepair.com/ or on facebook. 
    Please visit him for an oil change, tire rotation or anything your vehicle may need.  You could even shop a little of my Cammielamb line.

Cloth Diapers

     I've been dealing with my little man's night time wetting and feeling a little forlorn.  Not because he wets, I know he can't help it.  We limit night time liquids and wake him up to potty before we go to bed.  But the disposable pull ups really aren't doing the job.  He and his bed are still soaked 2-3 nights a week.  When he was a baby I was so excited to use cloth diapers.  Not the ones my mother used with pins and plastic diaper covers.  Revolutionary stay dry and look good wearing them pocket diapers.  Fuzzi Bunz http://www.fuzzibunz.com/ and Mommy's Touch http://www.mommystouch.com/ were my favorites.  They were so easy!  I really don't think people understand what they would gain (not to mention save $$$) by using them.  Now I need to find a cloth pull along the same idea for him at night.  I would never run out since you wash them in your machine and dry in dryer.  You just put them in a wet bag made from the same leak proof material as the outside of the diaper.  When full just push the whole bag inside out into the washing machine never touching a dirty diaper.

Noah's Arc Parade



Today was the 40th annual Noah's Arc Parade at my children's school.  Each child was asked to dress up as their favorite animal for the event.  Joshua chose the skunk.  Ok, mommy may have asked him to be a skunk since I thought I could whip up a costume fairly easily and thankfully he was in FULL agreement.  My handsome little Pepe Le Pugh made an adorable skunk, minus the smell.

Craft Fair First



     Wow, my first craft fair was more fun than I could have expected.  While I only sold about 10 items, the learning experience was priceless.  Bartlett Hills Baptist is full of unbelievably kind and "on the ball!" volunteers including my doctor Mark Reed and his lovely wife Linda who started and ran the event.  A big thank you to my friend Kim Bomprezzi who introduced me to the church and craft fairs.  She was gracious enough to walk me through the how to's and kept checking on my progress.  Thanks also to my good friend Stacy Biggs for designing and printing my business cards and price tags.  She's the kind of person that inspires you to be better, try harder and see the good in others... a true friend!
  
   I couldn't have done this with out my family!  My mother was there every step of the way by encouraging me to sew.  Then she helped me set up and kept me company all day Friday.  Best of all she met me Saturday to help and after Cammie and Josh got bored, she took them to the park, McDonald's and Baskin Robbins.  Yep, she's the best mom, role model and grandmother all rolled up in one. 
  
   My kids were impressed with mommy and enjoyed demonstrating the Crayon Rolls for all to see.  That means, of course, that they each took one for themselves.  Just one of the perks of being my assistants for a short while.  They drew pictures of the owls to display and carried some of the owls around to show them off while checking out all the other goodies the craft fair had to offer.

Tuesday, October 5, 2010

Wow!  This is the beginning of what will hopefully be an exciting and fun blog for all crafters.  I love to be a very active part of my children's lives as well as learn fresh ideas on how to decorate, cook, sew and raise little ones.   Expect a true blog shortly...once I figure out the technical kinks. 

You can find me at my first craft fair Fri. 10/15 and Sat 10/16 at Bartlett Hills Baptist Church where I'll be selling lots of cute things for kids and adults that I've sewn.  Hope to see you there.
