new things

I've decided that I need to start sewing again. I've always said that I don't have enough time. Well, I'm going to make time. I had so much fun entering all the contests over a Sew Mama Sew (I even won something), that it gave me a new determination to start sewing.

First up is a new outfit for Isaac. I embroidered it with my mom's machine that she is letting my borrow. It's hard to find good patterns for boys clothes. This one turned out so nice that I'll probably end up using it several times.

Next up is a skirt I made last weekend just in time to wear to church on Sunday. Patterns were on sale at the fabric store for $.99 and I already had the fabric. Pretty cheep skirt!

We went downtown last week to play in the children's fountain. The boys always have a good time.

And lastly, Isaac tried a Gerber puff for the first time. He was not at all impressed. I think we'll wait a few weeks and try again. (You'll notice my sewing mess in the background.)

And now for a few plugs. I do product testing and marketing for a company called Buzzagent. Recently they sent me a new bug repellent made by OFF that you clip onto your clothes. You don't have to spray it on your skin (yay for not having to put yucky stuff on your skin!!) It's a little fan that blows the bug repellent into the air. You're supposed to be protected for a 10 ft. radius around your body. We've tried it a few times and have found that it works great! I'm really excited to find something like this because I just hate spraying bug spray on the children. I have tons of coupons, so if you want to give it a try just let me know.

Also, I've been shopping a whole new way lately, thanks to a website called
I usually aim to save about 50% of my grocery bill and I've met that goal all but once. (That one time was only because I needed a few products that weren't on sale and I didn't have a coupon for.) She has a giveaway going on right now where you can win two booklets of coupons from Mambo Sprouts. Head on over the and check it out!
