I MADE PILLOWS! Like, real ones! Look!

They even have real backs so I can take the cover off and wash them (I think I will need to, considering I came home today to find Tazy comfortable on the couch). Also, I went to Curves for my second workout - go me.


My daddy loves me!

Well, I already knew that, but I know that he really loves me because he built us this awesome ottoman in less than 24-hours (not to mention also paid!). Isn't it beautiful!! It's perfect - it comfortably fits two people, and it moves great! Thanks dad!

I made these curtains for our laundry room to clear up some space. We don't have much in terms of a pantry, so I thought this would be a cute way to conceal our stuff. I'm not great at sewing, so I sealed all of the edges with the bonding stuff, split the curtains in the middle so we could get in the middle, cut little holes in the top to slide the shower curtain rings through, tied pretty red bows on them, then I was done! I think it turned out pretty good - considering I'm not the patient kind and I felt like I was ironing forever!

Thanks, mom.

So after seeing all of mom's cool pictures and posts, I've decided to start a "hobby" blog as well. It is true that others inspire, so if anything, I'll be able to share my creative stuff with someone. I like to knit, scrapbook, bead, and do anything pretty much crafty. I'm not a good painter, but I can paint a wall and use crackle finish, so I've got enough talent there. I also like to bake - I don't like to cook, but I really like making breads, pies, cookies, cakes - in other words, all the stuff that's bad for you, but so easy to love. See my Halloween mini-cakes. They're ghosts. :)
I've also determined that I really love anything shabby chic, although I doubt my husband feels the same, so I've toned our house down to a nice French countryside feel.
All in all, I just like being crafty and creating things, and I usually take a while to finish projects because I start it and work it half-way, then begin a new project. So maybe this blog will help me finish these projects - but we'll see. :)
