Working and working...

This week just flew by. I've been making new zippys for the shop...and working on a new item that should make it's debut next week. :)

I still have not finished my nephew's quilt...uggghhh. Need to get that done. I have a million works in progress that are eating at me, but I WILL get them finished......someday....soon, hopefully. Liam has been feeling under the weather, so I've been doing a lot of holding and rocking and singing and not much of anything else.

Looks like today he's feeling a lot better, so I'm thinking this is going to be a very productive weekend. Yay!!! :)

Burger cupcakes?!

Seriously, when I saw these on Bakerella my jaw just dropped. She never ceases to amaze me with her creations. She's my baking idol. No doubt. Anyway, I tried these out a few days ago, and they were actually pretty good. Nowhere near as pretty as her, but okay for lil' 'ol me. Here's the post in case anyone wants to try these. Happy Saturday, guys. :)

New Pouches in the Shop!

I finally got around to making some new zippy pouches with some of my fave fabrics! I could look at these lovelies all day. :) And a new item is up....embroidered pouches!

This one I made for Jace so he can put his pencils or map colors in. I'm thinking of making these for Jace and Cy's school teachers as a beginning of the year gift. Isn't that such a cute idea?! I'm also making one for myself but smaller to fit my ipod touch. ;) Anyway...gotta go finish a quilt for my new nephew. Peace.

FMF and LB&OM Raffle!

Tragedy struck a close friend and her family this year. Her husband was diagnosed with brain cancer, and is fighting for his life. He has been the sole provider for their family of 5, and so needless to say, things are tight now. Cindy has been doing a great job holding it down and keeping things together, but as a friend I wanted to help her out with something. So yesterday, I'm racking my brain..thinking about what I can do to help her raise a lil money..and it hit me. I can raffle off some of my most treasured and loved fabric...sigh. ((Yes, I def. love this girl.))

I was thinking of listing it on ebay, but then I had the thought of not only doing something to help my friend, but giving the chance to a FMF or HR lover to win these lovelies without paying an arm & a leg. So...I'm holding 2 raffles, one for a FQ of the Flea Market Fancy fabrics shown and one for the Lightning Bugs fabrics shown. Tickets are $5. Let me know what raffle ticket you're buying, FMF or LB or BOTH. You can send paypal to I'll let this run through Monday midnight CT. and I'll post the winners on Tuesday. Good Luck!!!

MIA for like ever!!

Oh wow!! March was my last post?? Crazy. So, where have I been? What's been going on? Well...craziness has been going on. In April, my grandmother passed away. She was 97 years old and tough as bricks. She'll be greatly missed. In May, I had surgery. I'm slowly getting better, but it def. knocked me hard. In June, my lil' sister had her first baby. Yay! and Hurricane Alex came through...But now finally, things are starting to settle down somewhat. Things have happened that have opened my eyes and given me a whole new perspective on life. I liked the idea of living simply before, but now I know it's the only way to go...for us, anyway. I've been working on decluttering our home and our lives. It feels good. :)

Anyway, I'll be posting info about a raffle I'm doing for a close friend later today. It involves yummy fabrics. Heather Ross Lightning Bugs and Flea Market Fancy to be exact. I also have a bajillion ideas for new shop items. One in particular is perfect for back to school, but more on that later. So...stay tuned. :)
