Spring back to life!

I've finally found my way back to the keyboard! It's been forever and a day since I've set down typed anything. I have been so overwhelmed with life, I haven't thought much about creating and sharing anything until just recently.
At the beginning of the year, I made a committment to declutter my house and life. Yes, it's really a resolution, but I thought if I called it a committment it would mean more. So, I made a list and I'm slowly working through it. I will show off some updates soon. I am loving seeing each space clean up. I just need to stay on track and work a little more consistently ;)

Well, I did start getting creative again for Christmas. I know, it's almost St Patty's Day and I am just now sharing Christmas presents. I guess I've got to start somewhere.
I really like to make something for each of the grandchildren, we have seven. I always get toys on their list as well, but I want to make sure they have something they know I made. They love to lay on the floor and watch tv or play video games, so I decided to make them giant floor pillows. I made them out of a lot of my stash of fabrics, but made sure I individualized them.

This is Alaina's. She is seventeen months old. And her room is done in pink and brown. Her pillow was smaller than the rest since she is just little girl!
Her brother Coonor is 5,almost 6 and he is all about superheroes!
With of course some soft blue milky on the other side.
To make it really special, it has city scapes on the sides,
Just like his bedroom walls!
What a lucky boy!

Next is Johnnie, who is three and he loves cars.
And some bright red minky on the other side.
Then there's Charlie, six years old. He is his daddy's boy and daddy loves
The Denver Broncos. So with a little swatch of Broncos fabric, I made it orange and blue for the team.
And finally, George who is about to be eight, who loves camo.
I wish I had taken a picture of the other side, it was gator vinyl.
The oldest two are 13 and 16 and they got money and gift cards.
But, occasionally they steal their little brothers pillows.

This has been a long enough post, and it felt great to be back.
I will be back soon, I promise. I've got more pillows to share!

See you soon!
