Weekly Wrap-Up: Nov 3, 2013

Welcome to our weekly wrap-up!  This is for the first week of November.

This week we continued what we worked on last week:

Reading Katy No Pocket, working on sight words, writing her name and family member’s names.  She is pretty much obsessed with sight words and writing names. Shes finds sight words in every. single. book she reads, or we read together.

Lexie did a great job!  She did this while I was making their lunches…
She is obsessed with writing!

Rainy day fun- bubbles!


this week Max started coloring with crayons.  He mostly just wanted to eat them ….


Lexie’s bears were riding on the “bus”- that’s daddy bear, middle size mama bear,
and little Lexie bear hopped on next.

This week we made our blessings tree.  It looks a little bare, because J.Tom was out of town when we made it, so his hands weren’t up.  We managed to get one handprint of Max’s, but it wasn’t on yet either.  Lexie decided Max would be thankful (if he could tell us …) for: his lovey, dog dog, dada, Lexie, Mama, and  bubbles.  In that order.

We started our conversation about Thanksgiving, but will dive in more the week before thanksgiving.  We are only have 2 BFIAR books to complete, and then we will start working on Five in A Row, after Christmas.  We will spend December mostly doing Advent and learning about Jesus, like we did last year.  Then in January we will being Five in a Row, and I cannot wait!

This week I finished a peasant top that is now offered in my etsy shop.  Lexie LOVES this blouse; she thinks it is just so pretty, and had to wear it to violin Friday.  I can’t wait to make her some solid white ones to go under dresses and jumpers for the winter.  I will soon have the ruffle pants in the shop as well! 



I hope everyone had a great week!

Many of you have seen my Etsy shop button on the side of the blog, and have favorited my shop! Thank you so much! If there is anything you would like to see, let me know. In the coming weeks I hope to get custom key fobs up, and a few dresses and nightgowns I am working on. With Christmas coming in a couple of months, I thought it would be an excellent time to show off what I have coming to my store. Custom gifts could be a great stocking stuffer for the holidays, from personalised photo keyrings to custom nightgowns and dresses. These items could make the perfect gift for your loved ones. I cannot wait! I hope to get the (tester) night gowns done in time for Christmas, so I can offer a made to order listing!

I am now offering these super fun dishtowels in the shop:

I really enjoy stitching out these fun towels! They can also be made to say ” …. a little bit of sweet tea/hot cocoa/hot tea/chocolate … “

These will make perfect Christmas gifts and stocking stuffers! Click on the link below to see the listing on etsy:

Prissy Pot Tots Shop- Upcoming Giveaway!

Hi everyone!  I’m not sure if I have mentioned it or not, but I’ve been rather busy in my sewing corner- and now introducing my embroidery/applique/monogramming corner!  I finally ordered the embroidery machine I have been wanting for so long.

I now have an Etsy shop set up and a Facebook page.  I offer handmade dresses, tops, and now super cute, personalized toddler backpacks!  Everything I make and sell can be personalized with applique, initial monogramming, or name embroidery; I also offer monogramming on items you already have.  For instance, if you would like a TShirt, bag, jacket, etc personalized I can do that for you!

I am making a cute drawstring backpack for my mom now, for her to use in her classroom on fieldtrips.  I will post pics when it is complete.  We are piecing together baby Max’s bedding now, and I plan on monogramming his name in the center of the bumper pad, and the accessories (like his lovey, pillows, etc).

I am so excited, not just to have the machine, but to offer services to friends and others who would like professionalization of different things.  Anyway, here is the link to the shop on Etsy:

and here is the link to my facebook page:

After I reach 200 “likes” on Facebook, I am giving away a drawstring toddler backpack of the winner’s choice!  It will be either a girly print, or boy print and can include an appliqued name up to 6 letters, (or 3 letter monogram) and an applique image.  
After the giveaway is complete and the winner is announced, I will send you the options available for your personalized bag!  =)
