Happy Valentines!

Boy did my husband surprise me this year for Valentines. I have been talking about wanting a sewing machine forever. I wasn't sure if I would really have time or not so I tossed the idea in the air alot trying to decide and my husband finally made the decision for me.. and I'm glad he did! He gave me the weirdest deal tho, he said " I'll make you a deal, you buy the camera you have always wanted ( he secretly wanted it too ) and i'll buy you a sewing machine for Valentines." How can I say no to that!? Not to mention I wasn't even expecting it. So I now have a DSLR camera that I am freakin out about how bad I want summer here so I can go get some pictures ( I'm a wimp to the cold ) and a sewing machine that I have been sewing like crazy on! My first project was a camera strap cover for my.. sorry our  ( ;) Devin ) camera -->Then I made a little owl pillow for Elysa's room ( didn't turn out to great but it's alright ).

Then I made a cute skirt for Elysa. It looks so freakin cute on her! I tried to get some pictures of her but they didn't turn out the best cause of lighting so I will have to try during the day sometime.. sure wish it was summer! * Can you tell that I have alot of this fabric lol.
We are still working on the other house and have done ALOT to it. I am still priming everything ( I hate HATE prime painting, it's so time consuming and I just want to paint color so bad.) I finally got to painting the color in the Laundry room and it is now ready for flooring to go in. We bought hardwood flooring last week as well as vinyl tile for the bathrooms and laundry room and just need to set up the appointment for them to come put it in. We literally tore about the main bathroom it has nothing left in it. We even took out the old gross bathtub/shower. Can't wait to get the new one in! Next room will be Elysa's room and I really can't wait to get it painted so we can get to decorating. We decided it's about time for her to have a toddler bed and I have been searching for the right bedding everywhere and couldn't find anything that I liked. So I decided to try and make her a comforter for her because I saw the cutest fabric and was like "man if I were brave enough" and I decided i'd try. So here is her freakin cute comforter -->  
I am so excited now to get her room all dazzled up. I'm gonna go sewing crazy and make pillows, curtains, cute pictures.. aaaa.. I'm excited haha.
So that is what I have been up to among other things. :)
