Friday sneak peeks...

Here is a sneak peek of a few of EB's new designs! As you can see from above, the list is long! The creative juices are flowing at Rachel's house! Someone e-mailed me suggesting the whale, which is just precious with blue seersucker (which I haven't used much - seersucker is such a great summer fabric).

And this cute simple pig. I LOVE SIMPLE! Applique is very tedious so when I see 4 steps, I jump for joy. These simple appliques are wonderful b/c you can be very creative with fabric and use fabrics you might not normally use (like the diamond fabric for a giraffe).
And the giraffe... I think this giraffe might go wonderfully with some baby items found at Target, so check it out!
And lastly... we've been talking up potty training and underwear to G, and he has pooped in the potty a hand full of times. Yesterday I decided since we were home I'd try out the Diego undies. He was very excited as you can see, for about 20 minutes. I set the kitchen timer for 20 min and was taking him to pee every 20 min. After about 5 times and after he refused to put them back on, I let him run around naked. I knew he had to go and I KNEW he was smart enough to know he was supposed to go in the toilet. He stood right beside me and pee-d on the dining room rug. So back on with the diaper! Garrison is a very smart 2 1/2 yr old. He knows what CD's are and last night asked me for my cell phone so he could call granmommy. He learns everything from Browder and I know this child could be potty trained if he wanted to (and if I had the patience). So we'll keep working on it! I'm in no rush but would like it done by spring. We'll keep playing up Diego undies and try them again on a lazy day around the house! He is so cute...

I'm addicted to Beyonce's new CD (disk 1). It's only about 6 songs but I love them all! Disk 2 is her Sasha Fierce side and it's good too, but for some reason I'm enjoying the slower songs. I DID NOT have a Starbucks this morning, but somehow I've folded and put up 2 loads of clothes, unloaded the dishwasher, vacuumed the den, swept the kitchen, made the bed and cleaned up G's room (Browder's is too messy!), made a few dozen cookies and am now eating a grilled cheese I made. Multitasking! I've also appliqued 2 towels. All this in 2 1/2 hrs?
This afternoon I'm headed to a women's retreat at RTJ Opelika. I'll be back tomorrow after lunch!
