ashlan said...

I love you and your ideas. I didn't even have to compile my NYR you just took care of it. Thanks! Second I can't believe how much you get done with a new born, you are amazing!

Hayley Neil said...

Holy crap Tara! Thanks! Post those pictures of your girlies asap!

Melissa said...

Congrats on your baby! She's SO cute and I love the name! not that you ever answer my questions, BUT I figured I'd try.......where did you get her blanket? The zebra/bright pink one? I want it for my up-coming baby!!!! I NEED it! If you made it, can you make me one?....and I really do want to come to your house sometime to buy stuff before my baby comes in March!(if you'll let me) ...I'll wait till your life settles down though.

Jennie B. said...

HFS! That's quite the list! Thanks!

Letti said...

Wow thank you for taking the time to find all of these. I can't wait to take a look at all of them

The Robisons said...

Holy Smokes Tara. How did you have time to find all of these? I swear you just had a baby. ;) Thanks though. I love you for it!

Joslyn said...

My comment was pretty much going to be identical to the "Robisons"......Didn't you just have a baby???? Wow! You're super woman! Thanks for all the tutorials! :) It will keep me occupied for days!

Jed and Sabrina said...

wowzers!!! I can't believe you compiled that much info into one place, and one post, how do you find the time?!!!
Are you gonna keep up your craft night, not any time soon of course! I would love to come.
What sweet girlies you have, how fun!

Zach and Katie Hillstead said...

i can't even believe you have that many links! where do you find all of this! this will keep me busy...i am excited i have lots of extra fabric to use on some of these ideas!

I love her name Tara, that is just so beautiful! But, how did you type all of that and take care of not only a new baby, but a toddler and yourself? You are the coolest person I know!!

The Thueson's said...

Oh I wish I had the time to find them all! I copied a bunch of lists together into one. It took me like 20 minutes. Not bad at all!

Buckland Family said...

Are you kidding me? Who has that much time to compile all of those and post them? You are super woman!

*LAYLA and AUSTIN* said...

I just have to agree with the comment from Melissa...I love the zebra/bright pink blanket. I want one for ME and maybe a baby if I ever have one and it is a girl. Where or where did you get it? I bet you made it huh? I want one! Also, when should I come tomorrow? Text me in the morning/afternoon and let me know when the best time would be! I will be home around 4 so sometime around or after 6 would probably be best for me (if I am making something that is..). Missy might come with me if that is okay! Talk to you tomorrow! Hope you are getting some sleep right now and not up till the wee hours like me!

Jenny said...

WOW! Thank you for putting this together. I made the fabric flowers you posted awhile back and it was lots of fun!

Anonymous said...

Thanks for the shout out! Congrats on your new daughter! :)

The McGraths said...

I'm dying about how crafty you are! This list is the best thing If ever stumbled upon while blog hopping. I'm not creepy I promise. Just crafty and just needed to thank you for this list. I'm sure it will keep me busy for years!

Lori said...

thank you for the link! wow, this is quite a list! :^)

fabric labels said...

Thanks for the effort. I will put this into good use. Best wishes to you and your family.

I have just discovered the Marie Claire Idees baby diaper cover and I think it is wonderful. I would like to make one for my granddaughter but I am unable to access the instructions. It continually states that there is an error. I can get the pattern. Would you still have the instructions available and possibly send them to me. I would be so appreciative.Thank you
