Sick Days Are the Best Days

Hope is home sick today. It's actually been wonderful, because while I work, she reads me books. I love that. Her voice is the cutest, and she reads at an incredible level, so hearing giant words coming from a munchkin is adorable. Here is a little of what I've been up to:

Ornaments! You already knew about the first batch of owls, but now they are complete! I'll be shopping for a small Christmas tree (sheesh, so early) today to hold all of my little friends. I've also been working on my next batch. Penguins!

As you can see, I have more hats and poms to make. They look so funny without them. Hee hee... giant heads...

And this is what I've been doing in my spare time (HA!). I've been cutting the sleeves off of my old sweaters and stitching the tops to turn them into legwarmers. These are super cute with dresses, and very functional. I love having toasty warm legs! :) Happy Thursday! <3 Katie P.S. My sweet friend Erin has opened up an Etsy shop. Please stop by and take look at all of her photos. :)


  1. owls & penguins look sweet!
    i adore their scarf & hats. (:

    have a nice day!

  2. Oh, those penguins are now officially the cutest thing I've seen!! Will you be selling them on your etsy?

  3. Youre going to do wonderfully at the show - the penguins are adorable, Im partial to the narwhals myself, and the owls with their scarves just hoot happy holidays! Ive been thinking of cutting of the sleeves from an old sweater to make into arm warmers actually, make a hole for a thumb and winter nights typing get cozier. Also caught a video on turning a sweater into a bolero, really simple.
    Cant wait to hear how well you made out with your treasures!

  4. You all are so encouraging!!! I appreciate the comments so much- I wish I could give every one of you a hug. xo

  5. Lovelovelove our new feathered friends!

  6. the owls and the penguins are way TOO cute!! love love love them :) I can not wait to own some of your cuties <3

  7. i love your penguins and owls :-) xx

  8. I had to go find a little tree for a craft fair I am doing to!! I ended up buying three little ones at Borders of all places, because I couldn't find them anywhere else. I think they might be too small for your ornaments, but if you get desperate, that is an unlikely place to look :)

  9. I have to say that's a great idea for old sweaters. Too bad I don't have any!

    And now I want a tree full of owls. So cute!

  10. OH MY GOSH OH MY GOSH!!!!!!!!
    owls AND penguins!!!!!!!!!
    My two current favourites!!!!
    And they are both incredibly adorable!!! Is there a pattern you have used or could share so I can adore my brand new Christmas tree with those adorable sweeties?
    I love them so!

  11. Those penguins are way too cute!

  12. the penguins with the hats are my favorite! you're now forcing me to buy a tree just to put these on it!
