Our Homemade Christmas

Five more days until Christmas!!!! Tomorrow I’ll be sending out my Christmas cards + my sister’s package. About time, huh? But ya know, I think it’s not just us. So far we’ve only gotten two cards this year. It must be a crazy year for many! Today, while M and dad’s away, I managed to do this: I made the tag myself in Illustrator and saved it as always to use in my KNK but I don’t know what happened my KNK couldn’t recognize the SVG file and when I imported the image into my software the file got all

In Search of a Tent

Are you done Christmas shopping? I thought I was but Miss M wants one more thing from Santa besides boots… a tent! I didn’t think tents would be so eye catching but they are! After looking at a lot of them, does anybody know where I can find something like this IKEA canopy ($19). The IKEA tent isn’t available to purchase online. I have something in mind that I’d love to make for M and I need a white blank canopy. I’m not that good of a seamstress and I know I’d butcher the fabric, even though it seems simple,

Two Day Project

That totally stressed me out!! It should have taken somebody 30 minutes to do this but it’s my 2nd time sewing and with no pattern to go by… I eyeballed everything. So here it it… M’s apron: It’s far from satisfactory. It’s far from straight. It’s far from perfect threading but she loves it and that’s all that matters. I got 2000 hugs and kisses this morning and it made this apron perfect!! My first week at work. Everything went well. I even worked out Tue + Thurs! Spin class kicked my butt though, OUCH!!! M ended her first week

M & Mom Project

I’m just sitting here enjoying (slurping to be more exact) my lunch. I’ve been having these weird, weekly, cravings of chocolate shakes. I had a big brunch and the way my stomach is nowadays I can’t eat much anyhow. So my lunch is Wendy’s chocolate shake and a gigantic ice tea — prob. too big for me. I forgot that “big” in the fast food world is not 20 oz. Hubby said Wendy’s has the best shake in town (we live in a small college/military town so not a lot of choices) and he said it’s at least made out

Pain in the A**

I ate three pieces of cake the other night, left the pan to soak in the sink and this was what I found in the morning on the counter top. Really? I think this was just inappropriate for my hubby to leave. I mean I AM pregnant {::SMILES}. Hope your Saturday was nice. I had a few good laughs with the hubby — almost had a baby cause I was laughing so hard. I had some yummy dim sum and went to Archivers too. I found a few things but no new Prima flowers or Sassafrass stuff. I guess I’ll

Kid’s Crazy :p

Check out these pics… I wrote last Monday that on Sunday I took a long long nap and the hubby and M baked cupcakes. There are a few more shots but these are two of my favorite pictures of their activities. Look at that face!!!! I’ll be scrapping this set for sure… when I find the mojo for it. Just lost it. Last scrappy day was the crop in January. I don’t feel like doing much today. My lack of sleep is killing me. I am still awake. It’s 11 p.m. I’ll probably be up at 4 a.m. again… ahh…No
