A beach somewhere

Thats where I want to be right now. It's snowing here again.. It's not too cold but still I am sick of the snow , rain and ice. . I miss laying out by the pool basking in the warmth of the sun. I just want to me warm again is that too much to ask.
I guess I need to get out of the house for shopping therapy. ya I think that might help my mood.
Maybe I will by a bikini turn up the heat and make a virgin strawberry daiquiri.

Or may be I will brake out the summer fun apron Val made me and all the fun summer napkins and cup cake toppers and make something tropical. Then nobody has to get grossed out by seeing me in a bikini

So whats your weather like today.

PS. I will post the trifle recipe later today!!

So yummy!!!

Ok This Trifle I made Yesterday Rocked!!! It was so easy and way too yummy.
I read many Trifle recipes and got the jest at how to make one and then just made this up I was kinda worried how it would taste but the end result was amazeing naughtiness on my tongue.
I was quite proud of my self considering that I so don't rock at baking yet.. But I am going to get there just watch me..
So my question of the day is how good of a baker are you? If you are a good one are you going to tell me your secret?

Ps stay tuned I have 4 tutorials coming up soon..
1. how to put a ruffle on to little girls jeans
2. tissue holder.
3. Tea wallet ( for you Val)
4. easy cloth napkins..

Just another Manic Monday!!

You all can thank me later when you are trying to sleep to night and this song is stuck in your head. You all know you love me.
Today has been so crazy everyone misbehaving and a clingy baby.
Dale had to rush off to school so I had o make diner early and Blahh blahh Blahh.
In spite of my day I was able to get this purse done.
It's a smaller version of the one in my last post. I am not sure if I love it or not I think it is too small and I did not use the square rings . I also used a button closure instead of the magnet snap. I do think I like that.
So if you have not already guessed I am going to make another one just slightly larger and use D rings.
I also have 2 other designs running around in my head and hope to make patterns fr he tonight.
I would love to hear what you think any ideas you may have to make this design better. What you may like or what yo don't like.

Here it is my first purse creation!!

This is my first purse creation I made up the pattern and think it turned out nicely It's kinda on the big side but thats OK I scaled the pattern down and the next on I will make will be smaller.

In this picture you can see how really large it is!! It will make a mom's bag you could put a small child in this bad boy. I am also sporting my new coat I got at Old Navy for it's the perfect go any wear coat it Wool so it's super warm.I used square rings to attached the strap I just love how it looks.

Here is the inside it's not a good pic but you can kinda see the pocket wich I love its a nice big u shaped double pocket. I used a magnet snap as the closure. I am still debating if I like it or not.

So what do you all think?

I hope to show you the smaller version tomorrow and the new pattern I came up with.

Random Randomness

How cool is this ? When I was putting lotion on to day this is how it squiggled out of the tube ..

Yep it's a fun little heart. I think somebody I love must have been thinking of me.

Ok I know this is hard to see and you are saying what is this? Well its not a crumb on my counter. It's a little tiny kidney stone fragment. I am praying it is what has been causing all my yucky issues of late. But I am not going to let my breath out just yet. I am still waiting to do some test and get some results back. The funny thing is when I stated having issues the first thing they did was test for kidney stones and the test came back negative but that was ten days before I past the stone.

This afternoon Dale and I went out to eat at Red Robins and he ordered the yummiest Blueberry pomegranate limeade. I think it would be fun and easy to recreate.

Stay tuned tomorrow I am going Show you the fun creation I made.. It turned out better than I thought it would. Hopefully tomorrow I can get some more sewing done.
Oh and maybe I will so you all the New coat I bought at old Navy It so cool and was so cheep.
Ok I better go to bed now.. Thats all my randomness for the day..

Because I am coo like that!!

Garrett was on his way to school and I asked him why he had 2 hoodies and a track jacket on and he said because it's freezing out there. I said if it's so cold out why don't you put your coat on he said Because I am cool like that.. I said if you don't ware a coat you aren't going to be cool like that you are going to be cold like that. He just rolled his eyes and said Mom that was lame like that.. Don't you love little 10 year old boys who are going on 19. LOL

Sneak peak!!!

Don't you just love when tons of ideas start swarming in your head and you cant sleep at night?
Well this happens to me alot with scrap booking and apron designs. Well now I have had these new designs floating in my head for a whole new thing. So I pulled out wrapping paper and went to work drawing a pattern of what was floating in my head. This was hard for me because I am not and artist. So after getting all the kinks worked out in the pattern i finally get to sew my great design together. I can hardly wait to get to the sewing part as soon as baby M takes her nap. It should truly be a great success or a big ole flop. I let you know soon which it is.
Wish me luck!!!

Egg yoga

Ben asked me to please take is egg yoga out of his egg because he doesn't like egg yoga.

Tea any one?

I wanted to make some thing fun to go along with the polar bear apron so I made this fun tea wallet out of left over fabric It was super easy and took no time at all. It could also be used to put business cards or credit cards in.
When Shelly saw she asked for one. The girl loves herbal tea!

Apron dramas

Yes more aprons what can I say i am addicted. Well this pretty number that should have taken only 45 mins took me for ever to do.. Any thing and every thing kept going wrong. My thread kept breaking, my needle broke, I sewed the pocket upside down the box pleats were lopsided and the list goes on. I do have to say it is pretty but after all that drama I sent it off on it's way to it's new home and I was glad to see it gone.

I took and made this the same day and in 20 mins and it gave me no trouble at all. This is really not a good pic I think it turned out as cute as can be and i loved it because it gave me no headache. I was sort of sad to see this one go but felt better knowing that 2 new aprons are on there way to me..
So today I have some fun sewing in store I cant wait to get going on my new projects.
I just hope kids and life let me play.
So what are you all up to today?

Life is cruel !!!!!

So because of these health issues I have been having I have to give up chocolate , and a few other foods for a while then reintroduce them. Ok I have no problem giving up the other foods but Chocolate . I don't think I can do it.. I eat a lot of chocolate every day it's my drug of choice. So if I am a cranky pants for the next 3 weeks everyone knows why and is well informed. Lets just pray that Chocolate is not part of the problem the only thing is that I am afraid it is... The day after I ate 4 candy bars plus a half a box of truffles is when I started having symptoms... Crazy crazy crazy..
On a happy note Yesterday I got some smokin hot boots. I just love them they are so sexy and sassy and best of all I got them on clearance for $15.00 how sweet is that. I will take a pic and show them off tomarrow!!
I hope everyone is having a happy fun week end.

It's Friday!!

This has been a crazy long week for me the kids have only one to school once not including today, I have been sick and Blah Blah Blah.. So I am so grateful it is Friday a end to a crazy long week. I am also happy that it's Date Night!! I look forward every Friday to dating my hubby. We always go out and do something together even if it's picking things up at Walmart or walking around Target to see what new things have come in we are together every Friday with out kids. I know because we do this we have a strong marriage. When we first had kids we were only able to get out one or twice a month because we had to get a sitter but it was always worth the cost. Now we have built in baby sitters and it's so nice not to have to worry about that now it's just juggling everyone schedules.
So now that I have just rambled on and on about dating my hubby. My question is do you all make regular date nights? If you do what do you do?

It's a new day!!!

Thanks for all the get wells. I still feel like garbage but I can tell these new meds may be working cuz I fell less like garbage than I did yesterday. I cant stand being sick I hardly ever get sick but this has been off and on for 4 months. Thank heavens my kids are off school today again because of ice so I can just rest. I cant believe they let me sleep in until 10:am it was so nice.

Last night I did something I haven't done in a long time I papered scraped oh man did it feel good to play with all my pretty papers and glitter and glue.This is the fun little creation I came up with I think it is fun and sweet. This is one of my favorite pix of Dale and I so I just had to scrap it.

I promise I will have my Jean pants ruffle tutorial up soon I just have not been in the mood to sew since I got sick.

My Hubby is so sweet but naughty...

I have been sick all day I woke up and thought I was dying. Then I get all these phone calls the 1st one 5:50 am no seminary because the roads are to icy Then the school 5 mins later
it's closed as well then one from baby M's Dad saying she wasent coming. I was so relived. So I called to get a DR. appointment went to the Dr. then to Walmart to get my meds and then home to wait for some test results. I kinda just laid around the house the rest of the afternoon. Dale called on his way home and asked me if I wanted him to pick up dinner. I was so grateful.
Not only did he bring home dinner but he brought home this yummy naughty treat.
I sure hope tomarrow I feel better and that I get some answers to see whats going on with my body..

I need new boots...

So I was looking on line and I really fell in love with these sassy sexy boots.. Then I saw the small little price tag of only $1,800.00 Then I was not so much in love with them. So instead I thought I would give these practical low heeled boots a try. Just kidding!!!
Could you imagine me in these piratical not so sexy boots.


I don't like it.

Ok so the before and after pic that I showed with Robbie on his birthday. The real story is..
When we were dine singing happy birthday Ben who was clear across the table setting next to me leans over real quick and blows the candles out before Robbie could. We all then moaned BEEEN and he said What whats wrong . Like he did nothing wrong.

Now to my problem to day. Ok I know kids have to grow up I am just not liking that my girls are getting so old. Especially when my oldest and her BF are talking about the M word. I don't like it. It was ok when they were 14 years old and they said they would marry some day but now that it could be a reality It scares me. To think that I could be a mother In law so soon No thank you not ready for it.

I just wish some days I could stop time and make them be little for longer.
