Travel Jewelry Roll



Tomorrow is my mother-in-law's birthday. I was wondering what I should make her, but I've been sooo busy all week so ofcourse, I waited until the last minute! She's getting married in June and going to Las Vegas for her honeymoon so I figured she could use a cute jewelry roll!

I dug into my "It's a Hoot" fabric by Momo again. I wish I had bought more, I just love this line. I made three zipper pockets inside so she can fit necklaces, earrings, even make up brushes!! I love it :) I have no idea if I sewed the zippers on the proper way. I just did what seemed practical. But hey, it works!




I can't believe tomorrow is the first day of April already. Time really flies after you have kids. Loving every moment of it but wishing AJ could stay this little forever!!



This was last year... *tear* Don't grow up, monkey!! Is it sad that I cry when I think about him leaving me for college? Is it so wrong that I want him to live with me until he's 40?!! I guess I have to let go one day, but for now... I can kiss him and hold him as much as I want!
