Proud Aunty

So proud of my little neice, here's one of her shots on the website Got Game gear.
She's looking very tough and sporty here on the left, but really she's a total SWEETIE! You can't see her gorgeous long hair in this pic. I think there's more shots. They refresh everytime you bring up the site.

Country Living Project: Ghost Mirror

No one is more suprised than me to say that I have loved these past 2 issues of Country living!
Seriously, they've been really good.
I especially fell in love with this Ghost mirror the minute I saw it. And said I have to try it.
I will show my photos soon. They provide the pattern and instructions on their website.
You can use MDF or Foam core, I obviously chose the foam core. I didn't have an exacto knife, so I used a razor type tool. I can tell you that the key here is to have a SUPER SHARP Cutting tool. I know that seems obvious. But I thought my razor was sharp. So in the end, I still loved this project, BUT my edges are not very smooth. I'm still figuring out what I can do, such as put ribbon all around the outside edges to cover it up.
But still a very fun and cool project!!! Just remember, get a new super sharp exacto before you start!!!

A girl named Rose....

Here she is, the doll I promised oh so long ago to my little girl. I'm embarassed to say how long it took for me to do. Let's just say 'forever', you get the idea. She named her Rose. And I'm so happy to have finished her. I loved the whole process and I could make a million of these, if I didn't have to do anything else like go to work, laundry, life...etc etc.
(you can click on the photo for a close up...... uhhhmm I should have dusted maybe!!!)

Rose originally had a bright pink scarf but when I showed it to Lil J...she stood quiet and looked disappointed. So I asked 'what's wrong?' And she told me she didn't love the bright pink scarf and so I immediately said 'no problem, off it goes!!!' Because if she doesn't love it, what's the point, right? Sometimes I forget that almost- 5 yr olds have their own very strong opinions! Especially about fashion! So we opted on the polka dots to match her little sock/boots!

I have more close ups, but blogger is being buggy the past few days. So I'll try to add them another day.

Flashback in time

This is one of my favorite photos of me and my oldest sister. (I'm on the right) Believe it or not, I think this was in a mall. Can you imagine, they would never do that these days. I was soooooo afraid of that little cub, I didn't want him touching me at all. Look at those paws!!! So cute, right! well I can say that now.

Sunday ............Amsterdam

I clipped this image from today's Star Ledger because I loved it! Especially that pink bicycle! It talks about how riding a bike is the cheapest form of transit while visiting Amsterdam.

Hey S -Day!

That's what my little girl calls Saturday and Sunday's .....the S days, so cute!!!
Went to Yoga this morning and I feel great! I've committed to 2 days a week(meaning paid for). I know that doesn't sound like much, but for someone who's not big on exercise of any kind, its a good beginning.
I have too many unfinished crafty projects lying around that are bugging me!!! like this
appliqued pillow case for little J...... so far from being done....
or these letters I cut out of fabric to make a(different) pillow with 'HOME' sewn onto.....

I am almost finished with some Valentine's Day suprise gifts for special someone's. I can only give a partial peek or it will totally give it away. They are tea towels that I've embroidered onto.......

Enjoy your S -Days my friends!!!!!
