Hangin With My Girls

My photo
Welcome to my Blog!! I want to thank my inspiration - Gabriel, Gabriela and Alesandra...without them I would have nothing to crop! Additionally, I need to thank my BSF, Cie, as she has enabled me to buy my Big Bug "Lili Cie". Lili Cie doesn't get to chirp as much as I would like her to, but in 2009 this will change. My goal will be 100 Layouts and 200 cards. Thanks for visiting and come back soon! Be sure to sign my guestbook!

Kreativ Blogger Award...WOW!~!

So, just when I thought no one ever paid attention to me or my blog (I truly use it for random rambling and to show MOM my projects - same as when I was 5)...I get the nicest post from one of the most creative people I know!!!! Ted, thank you so very much for such a "SWEET" gesture. (He liked my Grande Altered Hershey Bars)

I feel like I just won the academy awards or something...LOL... I am aww struck...(and that doesn't happen every day!!!!!)...I'd like to thank.....(ok ok just a joke...I will get on with it here...)

So now, I think I am supposed to list seven (7) of my favorite things/people:

(I am supposed to keep this going, right???)

1 - God
2 - My family...all of them...I love them so much.
3 - My Friends, but especially my BFF & BSF
4 - Sunshine
5 - Spare time (it is so precious and I don't seem to get much of it - EVER)
6 - Paid time off work
7 - Margaritas...oh yeah, and chocolate. :)

And now I'm supposed to nominate seven (7) Kreativ Bloggers of my own (and I assume I can't nominate the one that nominated me...cause you know he'd be on here - he is quite the crafter!)

Here they are (in no particular order):

2 - Enfys - Going Buggy

First off, let me start by saying that I bought a sewing machine from my nieces MIL about 2 years ago and in the closet it has sat. I have NEVER sewn ANYTHING and had a heck of a time threading the machine when I finally did take it out a few days ago!
So...a kind soul sent me instructions on how to make jammies for my E a few weeks ago. I printed them out tonight and........well, I couldn't make heads or tails out of them. LOL...not really a direction follower here....so I tossed the instructions and below is what I came up with...(even used a fancy zig zag stitch on the bottom...lol...just don't turn it inside out as it is pretty ugly...) I found the CUTE material at J's on clearance and decided that I was going to tackle jammies for friends for their E's for Christmas...I think I was aiming too high tho - there is NO WAY I will get the number done that I want to get done. I will certainly try though!!!!!
