Punk Rock Headband!

I finished 2 headbands for the girls! I liked them so much I might make some to add to my Etsy store! I realized AFTER I made them I need to add fabric in between the layers so that the darker one doesn't show through, but I'm ok with it for now. What do you think??? I would LOVE feedback!

I got my Valentine matchbox last night, and just love it! It is so stinkin' cute!

Hubby and I are going out tonight (YIPEE!) without KIDS! Have a great night! I know we will! :)

Yummy Fabric!!!

I am so excited! I picked up the books I had on hold at the library, and I cannot wait to sit on the sofa with a hot cup of coffee drooling over all the pages! It is sooo cold and snowy out today!

I sent the girls out because they were going stir crazy with no school this week, and it took me 10 minutes just to bundle them all up! The poor things looked the the little boy in The Christmas Story!

I went to a fabric store that I always forget is right by my house, and found out they are going out of business. :( But I got a GREAT deal and LOTS of yummy fabric! 45% off!!!!!

I got my Cupcake swap yesterday, and just LOVED everything!

I am working on headbands for the girls and LOVE LOVE LOVE the way they are turning out! I will share pics when they are done.

I hope you have a GREAT weekend!

Still snowing

Ugh, I am sooooo tired of winter!!! Mia's school called tonight, and there will be NO school tomorrow either. Three days off now. And to top it off, I took Mia to the docs (It was so bad out, I left TWO HOURS early!) and she has a double ear infection. The poor thing. And Ella just can't shake her fever. So I guess it's good there is no school. I took some pics this am of all the snow and ice. We had a HUGE branch fall in the middle of our driveway, and you should have seen me outside trying to move it, lol. Needless to say, it stayed where it was until Brian came home. The girls had a laugh from it!

I found some fabric from a project that I never finished (Imagine that. Me not finish something, lol. I must have 100 projects that I have started but never finished)and made another pincushion. I LOVE how it turned out, I just wish you could see the cool skulls on it.

So I finished this Christmas ornament I have had in my head for a while now, and I think I will be making alot more of these. It's not the best, but I can totally see the potential. I am thinking my next one will be an Easter theme.

I took some pics from around the house, and realized how sparse my living room is, lol. I need MORE PINK! HE HE! Hubby will be sooo happy!

Ok, I think I'm off to bed now. Have a good night!

Sick, sick, sick!

Ugh! All 3 of us girls are sick! Mia stayed home from school yesterday with an ear ache, she has a cold, I think I have a sinus infection, and poor Ella has a dozy! She has a cold AND threw up all day yesterday! The poor thing did not eat ANYTHING yesterday! She did wake up this am with a HUGE appetite, so I think it was a 24 hour thing. I woke up to no school for Mia and lots and lots of snow!

I am almost done with my cat for the handmade swap, all I have left to do is add the face and a dress. I know I said I would not make another one, but I think my mom would REALLY like one. She LOVES cats and country stuff, (not my thing) so I think I might try a cat in a cranberry and blue. I have until her B-day in April.

Lots of swap stuff to share;

My Tiny Whimsy jar I sent:

And this is what I got! I just love everything!

My Valentine Matchbox that I am sending:

The "Favorite Color Whimsy Jar" that I recieved (I am honesty HOOKED on whimsy jars! They are so much fun!):

Did you see the ADORABLE little matchbox she sent?? I just LOVE it!

I made a really cute felt bird to send with the cat I am making. I am going to use the pattern to make a few birds for around my house. And of course they will be pink. Hubby is soooo understanding that everything in the house is pink and girly! He never complains! I will have to take some pics and share some time.

So I started to make this felt cupcake, but I really don't like the way it turned out. I think it's just too big. I will try it again making it smaller next time. The girls have already claimed it, so I guess I have to finish it, lol!

I listed my felt cookies on Ebay yesterday, they are not selling on Etsy. :(
I would love some feedback on them.

I made cupcakes for the girls last night, and grandma came over to stay with the girls while we were getting our taxes done, so I sent some home for them to eat. She called back saying I have to make grandpa a whole batch he liked them so much, lol!

I think that's all I have to share for today. Not sure what I am going to get into today. It's only 10 am and the girls are at each other's throats, lol. I hope the fighting gets better!
Have a great day!

Favorite Pics

Not much going on, I really haven't been in the mood to craft, I think I lost my mojo, lol. I did finish up my "Tiny valentine Whimsy swap":

I thought I would share some of my fav. pics of 2008:

I have to work all weekend, but hopefully I'll have time to work on my cat for the handmade swap.
Have a great weekend!

Ella's 5th Birthday

Today is Ella's 5th b-day. Sniff sniff. :( She had a great time at her party, and I am thankful that I don't have to see Chuck E. Cheese's until next year!!! Two of her friends came to the party and they all had so much fun!
I sent cookies in for her preschool class today, and we are giving her the B-day presents tonight.

I started my cat for the handmade swap I am in and it is harder than I thought. I had to redo the leg and arm already, and have no idea how I am going to attach the head to the body. Sigh. I wish sewing came easy for me. I think it will turn out cute, but this will be the last time I make it, lol!

If you look at my last post, I am making the cat on the cover of "Sew Pretty Homestyle" book.

I finished all the goodies for the "Favorite Color Whimsy Swap" I am in, I just need to add something to the outside of the jar and send it off.

I'm really not in the mood to do any crafting today, so I think I will take a break and lay around on the sofa today. My mom called and told me they moved House from Tuesday to today! I am sooo excited! I haven't been able to see any of this season's house because I work on Tuesday nights. :(

Have a Good Monday!
