My New Banner!

My smart friend who knows tons more about computers then I do made a new banner for me. I love it! Isn't it gorgeous? It's pink and it's cute stuff that I've made. So much fun...thanks Monica!

I also got a swap package in the mail a few days ago from Gigi. Oh my gosh, it was wrapped so stinkin cute that I didn't even want to open it! lol Fun, fun stuff... presentation sure counts for a lot. It was filled with all kinds of great things: bath fizzies that looked like ice cream cones with pink ice cream, adorable cupcake ribbon, a homemade notebook, notecards and a super cute altered matchbox full of pretty bulldog clips. Thanks so much Gigi!





So I've been sewing again lately. I think that's my new fav craft. I've made a couple of aprons that I need to photograph and post on here. I appliqued for the first time and that turned out kind of cute! Yesterday I went to Monica's house and showed her daughter how to make an apron. She did so good--it turned out adorable!! I was really impressed how well she did for her first time sewing an apron. Good job, Britni! I haven't scrapbooked, which was my first crafting passion, in such a long time. I don't want to stop documenting our lives but I'm just too consumed with other tcreative endeavors right now. Things tend to come and go in huge spurts for me so I'm assuming I'll eventually start scrapping again. It would be nice if I could find balance with all the things I like to do!

Cade's upstairs playing with Miss Rachael (his therapist) so I really should get off of here and finish cleaning. That way we can head out to the grocery store after lunch. As Cade would say...TTFN, ta ta for now! :)

Cuuuuute banner!!!
Sewing again? With fabric? Oh good lordy woman, are you trying to put the rest of us to shame?

My machine hasn't seen the light of day since last Halloween when I sewed a paper banner.

Tragic. Really.

Hi Kristin, loving the new banner (the old one was adorable too!). Love the swap parcels you got, they are as beautiful in presentation as they are in content!!!
