WARNING - Crafting while Tired and Pregnant Could Lead to...

Crafting while tired and Pregnant could lead to some items like this...

I thought I was so brilliant and nerdy to come up with this...

I showed the Nuclear Physist onesie to Hubby and asked him, "Where do you think this is going?"  Meaning...what do you think will be on the back?...what's the punchline?  Hubby's response..."To someone who can't spell?"

That should be P-H-Y-S-I-C-I-S-T, as in physicist....someone who studies physics.

Ooops...good thing I had another white onesie.  I promise I took physics in college and got A's.  Meanwhile...bonus points to anyone who can guess the joke that this onesie was supposed to be.

And I've done freezer paper stenciling quite a few times...but not enough apparently because for some reason I thought it would be a good idea to water down the paint just a little before applying the paint.  Note to self...don't water down paint for freezer paper stenciling.  At least I messed up the first one which was an easy design to cut out for a second try...

And finally...I don't know if this one is better or worse.  I made this cute bulletin board for Firecracker with some of the left over fabric from her quilt.  I'd been admiring it all afternoon and didn't realize there was anything wrong with it until Hubby came home and I proudly showed it off to him.  Then he gave me this horrified/puzzled/did-I-miss-something look.

Apparently I don't know which way letters are written.  So far Firecracker hasn't noticed...I guess letter formation is still a creative process in First Grade...

...and at least the "a" spends most of it's time covered up.

But please be sure to notice the super cute buttons, that I did manage to properly glue on with hot glue to cover the sloppy corners made with left over bias tape.  You can buy your own cute white buttons (or buttons of just about any color) from my sister Katie at From the Red Kitchen.

Please show my sponsors some love...

  2. How funny about the mistakes. We all have done it. Cute projects! I like the idea of taking the quilt fabric to make the board to match the room.

  8. I love your onesies! I'm a total crafty nerd scientist, so I think the chromosomes are just awesome! I know that tired-crafting feeling though, my sister and I had some of that last weekend when we had to rip out a very basic project three times.

  10. Thanks for the laughs! I hate it when I do things like that. I noticed how nicely your letters are formed, though. I am not that patient with an x-acto knife!

  11. I love the physicist! Made me laugh when I saw it, if you only knew how many home work assignments I got from my tutoring students with it spelled like that :)

  16. I love your onesies, very unique. Funny story! I once misspelled "Association" on the Honor Students Association banner at a college fair! Talk about embarrassing!

  17. Well I didn't notice it was spelled wrong :) I do math, not english :) So fun to only have half of your functioning brain when pregnant :)
