For Sarah, the Diego lover
A T-Rex for Sam
I made one like this for both Jo and Anne
Sorry about the inconsistent labeling. My cursor was jumping all over the place! I don't know what's wrong but this site doesn't like me to post pictures and label them! Thanks for looking at all my sewing I have shared recently. I like that it looks like I am a prolific sewer when in reality, all this took me months to finish. I drive myself crazy with ideas and things I am dying to make, but I am slow! All your comments totally keep me going.

The best part of all was when he got up from his party, picked the pjs up, and with a sly grin, stole away to his room to put them right on! Now THAT is why I love to make stuff for the kids. Aggh this kid is CUTE! He was even sick that night, but he was so sweet, polite, happy and grateful for every single present.
Oh - and he is holding chocolate gold coins in his hands. This is what he was dying to have to fill his pot with. Thanks to Gram for going all the way out to Zurcher's to get them!!! He walked around all night proud as punch having them in his pot.
That was a good collaboration. I think Andrew and I need to work together more often.

Mmm... butter and marshmallows melting together.
Adding the Rice Krispies
Then I formed it into a "kiss" shape
I taped these together to make the little paper that comes out the top.
A kiss for my valentine!
I might take him to do something later too, if he's not too tired after his overnight scout camp last night.

I L-O-V-E 70's dress up. I don't know why, I just do.
Does it get more stylin' than this?
p.s. - I want to say thank you so much for all the positive comments on the outfit. Every one of them made my day. I wish there was a magic wand that could make me stop second-guessing myself so much!!

Ikea's "Find Your Design Style" Quiz - I was Country Balanced. Hmmm not sure about that, but it was fun. This takes a minute to load. Quiz is at the bottom of the page.
This blog totally makes me giggle. Thanks for finding it Tiffany.
And you can't possibly miss engrish.com. This one has me laughing this morning. And this. This and this. I am seriously in tears. #2 really gets me here. Ok the whole thing is hilarious. My cheeks are starting to hurt now. Seriously. I need to stop now. No more. I think mistranslation can be pretty funny in every language. English is just so different from these languages that it makes for some tough translation work I guess!
And in other notes... Chuck is finally back. How much do I love Chuck? I haven't watched the new one yet though. Because then I wouldn't have any to look forward to watching. So I have to wait until I get another one on my dvr. I like the delayed gratification.

Well... guess what?! Now I am adding these beauties to my jewelry collection!!!
I WON THEM! How exciting is that?! I can't believe I won - I entered the contest on the Mormon Mommy blogs just for fun by commenting, and lo and behold, I am the happy owner of beautiful new earrings. Second Sister's jewelry is exquisite and I wanted to share a few of her pieces here.
Pretty stuff. I love the names she gives them too, like Orchardist's Wife Bracelet, and Miss Havisham Bracelet.
It just goes to show you, it never hurts to enter a contest even if you don't really think you'll win!
