School is kicking my butt so far. The first day I spent 8 hours working on things. I'm not sure I can keep up that pace, but hopefully I'll manage. I sent David out for snacks for the 2nd day. I'm going to have to let my inner perfectionist beastie creature out about keeping a calendar and repress it for when I'm working on assignments. Let's just say that I cannot drive myself crazy trying to get all A's. I need some balance, right?
In other news, my sister and I have been sewing lots and lots and even shopping at fabric stores (with eight children in tow, please, don't ever let me do that again) and we finally got a few of these up on Etsy. They are pretty involved step-wise, but we are getting there. The end result is worth it, because they are so DANG cute! It's not often that I love the end result of one of my crafts (too picky/perfectionistic), but these turned out so cute. They are soft and cuddly and I wish I had them for when my kids were babies.
So far, both sea themes, but we have some more super cute ones coming next week hopefully! We sewed a butterfly set, but someone locally has dibs on them.
Ok, first up, Mr. Octopus. My mom was confused because you can't see all his legs, but some of them have to be in the back, right? Seeing all of them might be chaotic looking.

Then we have the fishes. Their spots are painted, which gives them a certain charm. I like the slightly surprised look on his face.The front:The back:
