Mother’s Day

Mother’s day is always a special day. I try to reflect on my kids, spend a little time on myself and most importantly make sure that I spend some time with my mother. This mother’s day was weird……I realized half way through brunch that my mother is going to be 80 in TWO years. This …

I made so many freakin’ mistake on this ruffle that I was really worried how it would turn out. Here’s a pic before I finished off the bottom. And here is it after felting just dryin’ on the couch.

Third purse….damn I’m good.

So here is the third purse I’ve made, I’m almost done purse number 4 but since Mother’s day is NEXT SUNDAY I don’t have time to piss around….this one I made up as I went along and I’m not all that happy with it, but it’s cute. Once I’m done all the purses I’m making …

Jessie the dog…..

Reposting because what I really wanted to do was show the before do and then the new do. Here’s the before And here’s the after….yah it’s short but it’s really cute! The bow lasted about 5 minutes this morning before Master of the Universe started pulling at it. But isn’t she beautiful!

Blah…

I really think that what I really think may be a non issue. I’m confronted by the fact that we live in an imperfect world almost daily. The kids don’t drive me crazy,well, not the ones at work, the ones at home just need better parents. It’s the adults. People are stupid. I guess if …

Second bag….and second son….

Okay, so I am addicted to these felted bags. They are so easy and fun. I think they are the perfect bag for the person who constantly has to be switching gears. I can put it down and come back to it and not worry about where I am or ripping stitches. Mother’s Day is …
