The older two kidlets had signs and pictures on their doors, but the baby did not. I've had these wooden initial letters sitting in my crafting room for what seemed like eternity and thought I should finally put a decoration on her bedroom door.
I made this tutorial up as I went and decided to turn it into a cute little how to for anyone else. I love, love, love how it came out. It's super fun and so easy to make. It will take you less than 30 minutes from beginning to end for one letter. But, you could do their entire name and be done in an afternoon and have a great wall decoration for a nursery or anyone's room.
Enjoy!! Hopefully that apron tutorial will get itself done this week. My sewing room is making me feel anxious and overwhelmed. There is just too much stuff, but I've gotten it down to the minimum I need. I think I need some more storage for it. Maybe I can go thrifting this weekend and find something amazing for a bookshelf.

I want to give it to her this weekend for her b-day and if I can manage it with only the serger I'll post a tutorial. I'm thinking my technique will be somewhat like a serge-a-quilt.

So while looking at other people's boards I discovered Sopapilla Cheesecake over at My Yellow Umbrella. Ms Em and I had to make it. I let Ms Em make the entire thing last night after dinner. It was delicious!! Unfortunately, I forgot to take a picture.
We did change up the recipe just a smidge.
2 (8oz) packages cream cheese (softened)
1 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
Cinnamon & sugar - I used 1/3 cup and sugar and 1 tbs of cinnamon.
Unrolled and spread 1 & 1/2 can crescent rolls on bottom of un-greased pan. Combine softened cream cheese, sugar, and vanilla. Spread mixture over crescent rolls. Unroll and spread remaining crescent rolls over mixture. Spread melted butter over the top and sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar. Bake at 350 degrees for 20-30 minutes.
And after we made it, I thought if it's a sopapilla cheesecake, then it needs honey too, so after it's sliced and on the plate, we add some honey to top it off.

My plan is to get my sewing room in order so I can sew some things for a couple of craft fairs with my mom and some Etsy things.
So here is the work in progress. This is my eBay/sewing/baby room all in one. As soon as I'm done I'll post new pics of my tricked out sewing room lol.
