not so hot

well the show was a bust!!! i did meet some groovy people and managed to crochet two scarves! it is just very upsetting when the show was all hyped up and then almost everyone there did little to nothing. granted these things can never be predicted but i think i will limit my craft/bizarre participation to handmade functions as much as possible. there happen to be a bunch of wholesale buyers there who could sell cheaply. which makes it difficult to sell quality handmade things at reasonable prices. i did get tons of compliments on my work but still no real sales. oh well enough ranting. !!! enjoy your day!!!!

Busy Busy! Getting ready for a show. Lots of sewing, I think I made 13 bags in 4 days!! What was I thinking stressing myself out a bit like that!! Well they all turned out very cool!! The kids all got fed and some of the laundry even was done!! So, I feel like I am batting a thousand!!

I am doing a church craft/bizzare that should be a bunch of fun!!!! I went to set up tonight and saw a few people that I have done other shows with and that was nice to see them and see how they were doing.
I plan on doing a shop update after this show tommorrow. So if you see something you like check the shop in the next couple of days.

my camera must be having issues!! i was trying to get a photo from halloween and just couldn't so i found another from the week, she is a princess ballerina!!! so cute!! the brothers were with their dad this year. the 10 year old did not trick or treat but the evil swat team guy (the 6 year old) had a blast!!!

halloween fun

My mom has a yearly a Halloween party for her now 15 grandchildren, so this year I decided to make her an apron for the party!! Do you love it?! I made one for myself too!! We all had a blast and the kids were loaded with sugar(go mom!) and of course she made a ton of yummy food!! So after I rolled away from her house I came home and made some treat bags for my kids and one for a swap(note to self go to postoffice!) I made the bags from some towels that I got from the dollar store and added some basic nylon handles!! Now we have bags ready to hold all the loot they are willing to trick or treat for!! I will help hold any almond joys they feel like they can't carry!! Have a fun halloween!!!!

crazy crazy

i was ill again and in the hospital for 4 days but all is well again!! lol!! i finally got to give Weston his bag and his mom liked it a bunch!! i also did a little school craft/bizarre thing that was fun but not very profitable. i met a couple of really nice ladies so the day was fun!!
be back with some crafty stuff soon!!

tote bag fun

today i made this groovy bag for a little guy in our music together class that my daughter and i take!! this was a bunch of fun to make!! i don't usually get to make things for boys to often!! i appliqued his name on it which i think turned out well and also confirmed my desire for an embroidery machine!! lots of twisting and turning with the machine!(lucky i didn't break a needle)

i will be bringing it to class tomorrow for him!! i'm sure both his mom and him will enjoy it!!!

i think i will make some more totes for boys!! i do have 9 nephews and my 2 boys that might like a bag for all their boy stuff!!(legos and cars along with the random stick and rock collections)LOL!!! boys are funny!

enjoy your day!!!

roll with it!

after complaining a bit about being closer to forty than thirty i spent most of monday in the ER. i now have to have my gulbladder removed. this will all happen on friday as in 2 days from now!! so i will really have a relaxed weekend before school starts and as long as i can sew/craft something i will stay some what sain. i am not one to just sit and wait, even at the ER i wasn't sitting still. enough ramble i will post soon!!

closer to forty than thirty

Well, You guessed it. It is my birthday!!! So far so good. My birthday's are for the most part are pretty calm. I guess it is because its the end of summer and everyone is getting ready for back to school and squeezing in that last vaction. In the past years I had one of my sisters get married on the 25th so the rehersal was my birthday and then another baptised her twins. My mom always has a way of making me feel good on my birthday!! If you know my mom you know what I mean!! (cup cake pan)

In the mail yesterday I recieved this goody, I was a runner up in a button counting contest that Liz from be present be here had. I love! it!!! The purse is perfect, I was looking for one that I could use just for me without all the toddler/kid stuff!!! the notebook is so pretty I am not sure what I will jot down in there.

I have also been busy organizing my sewing/dinning room and I think I have it at a good place now. My family can easily sit and eat dinner and I can create better in a less cluttered area.

have a great weekend!!!!

the cup cake

I made the giant cup cake the other day. I followed the recipe for double chocolate pound cak that came with the pan. (wilton recipe) I was sad to say that I was very disapointed with it. The cake itself looked yummy but it really wasn't chocolaty enough and a bit dry. I plan on trying it again but with a family pound cake recipe. I do think this needs a pound cake or other dense cake in order for the bottom to support the top. I did have fun making this and will post the next try soon. Happy Baking!!!!!

As you can see my daughter didn't care what the cake tasted like! She was just excited to have a giant cup cake!!!

Tuesday, August 14, 2007

Look at what my mom got me for my upcoming birthday!!!

This pan is made by Wilton but Sur la table sells it. I love cupcakes and will be making this later on this evening!! I can't wait!!

Bonus: It even has a recipe for chololate pound cake!! YUMMY!!!

Among all the billions of things I am trying to do before school starts!! I have been doing a bunch of clean house projects!! Must get done jobs and a few not so urgent ones!LOL!!
