No, I didn't forget


Here are some quick pictures of the reversible bandanna overalls. I know I still need to do the "proper" pictures, but I've been a little busy with life. So I at least finally went through my pictures and grabbed out a variety of pictures of the outfit. The pictures of the yellow side are the more recent ones -- I added the eyelet trim to the bottom and stitched it all together so the hem is not loose any more.

Happy Belated Executive Assistant's Day

At my hubby's work there is the most fantabulous "executive assistant" (cumbersome title, isn't it?) She has spent hours of time making things work that just don't look like they're gonna work. Long story short: she went to bat for me to let me use an airline credit to visit my sister this weekend.
I was planning to make something for her for EA Day last week, but I didn't get it done... then I had to do more and all that (I can never just stop at one thing, LOL).
Her favorite color is purple, so I made a gift basket with a purple theme -- oil diffuser thingy, lotion, body spray, hanatizer, ribbon wrapped pens, chocolate drizzled caramel popcorn, chocolate covered peanut-butter pretzels, english toffee, and pretty flip flops. I had a lot of fun doing it :)

Proud Mama

I know it has been a long time, but I've been a little caught up in life :)
I have learned something new and I'm slightly addicted >giggle< I made stencils from photos and created a completely unique shirt for myself. It was quite a bit of work, but it turned out really cool, I think.

Now I really want a cool new toy. It is a little bit like a Cricut, but it connects to your computer so it can cut any shape, not just the expensive cartridge ones. Of course it's not cheap, but I'm gonna keep my eyes open and maybe someday I'll be able to find a good enough deal and scrape together enough change at the same time, LOL.

In the mean time, I'm just spending hours with an exacto knife :P

Who needs a Fairy Godmother?!

Daisy has just finished a fairy tale unit at school so today they got to dress up as their favorite fairy tale character. Of course I thought of this idea after midnight last night. It isn't quite finished. I have some pretty cream colored lacy trim and such for the ball gown side. The jumper is reversible -- servant Cinderella on one side and ballgown Cinderella on the other! Daisy got to slip into the bathroom halfway through the day and flip her jumper inside out and come back all fancy :) She loves it!!!

Loving this one!!!



I am loving this new set I made for Butterfly! A tie-dress, appliqueed tee, ruffle pants, headband, and bow socks. I would love to find some little flip flops and rag tie those too... There are so many ways to wear this set! In fact, she got it dirty yesterday but this morning when she got dressed she grabbed it out of the hamper and wouldnt' wear anything else, LOL!
I hope to make the same set for the other two girls too. They're thoroughly jealous.
The other night when I was first working on it, DH was heading to bed. I asked if he wanted to see what I was working on, and he politely said that yes, of course he would. The jumper was most of the way done at that point. He LOVES it too! Being rather extensive, this set would probably be offered for $50 to $60.
