It's been so long!

I sure seem to go missing a lot. :(

The last 7 months have been crazy. Quite the emotional roller coaster! My husband left October 2011 and he has not come home. There was a lot of tears, a lot of anger, and some cursing. It was crazy.

I had been a stay at home mom for 2 years so you can imagine my surprise when he announced I had to go back to work.

On the plus side I am back to crating. I haven't done too much sewing but I am trying. I got my serger finally! woo hoo! I have made 5 aprons and 1 zipper pouch! Oh yea also a shirt sort of.

I have made lots of jewelry. Rings, earrings, necklaces. I have been getting tons of new supplies! Such fun! I am getting ready to launch another new line also. I am going to start selling plugs! :)

So without further ado.. here are some pictures of fun things I have made lately.

A few aprons!

Some rad jewlry!
Lots more and everything is in Etsy right now! I hope to be back soon! <3

Since I make hair stuff I have lots of hair stuff. I do not have as much as you think BUT I do have a lot. I also get them as gifts from other friends who make stuff.

So here is my hair stuff holders!

See it's full! I had lots of stuff that I didn't have room to hang up. :( I left them in an ugly box! How upsetting is that.


All better!! :) I found these little wooden stars at Hobby Lobby last year. They were on sale 8 for $1.00! So I bought a bunch knowing that I would find something cool to do with them! So 3 stars, some scrap book paper, ribbon, d-rings, and mod podge and bam! Isn't it so much better? I love having all my stuff up and pretty!

Here is the update to my counters!

MMM.. Food

I started this program a few weeks ago called Bountiful Baskets. Its a great program. It is a food co-op! It is $15.00 for 2 baskets full of fresh fruit and veggies! So far I love it! Last week I got loads of great things including 9 zucchinis! YIKES! I am not the biggest fan of eating zucchini I really have to be in the mood. I decided to make break instead. I made 4 loafs! It is super yummy. The best part is that it freezes so well!

Here is the recipe I used and it was amazing!
Zucchini Bread (Makes 2 Loafs)
• 3 cups all-purpose flour
• 1 teaspoon salt
• 1 teaspoon baking soda
• 1 teaspoon baking powder
• 3 teaspoons ground cinnamon
• 3 eggs
• 1 cup vegetable oil
• 2 1/4 cups white sugar
• 3 teaspoons vanilla extract
• 2 cups grated zucchini
• 1 cup chopped walnuts
1. Grease and flour two 8 x 4 inch pans. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C).
2. Sift flour, salt, baking powder, soda, and cinnamon together in a bowl.
3. Beat eggs, oil, vanilla, and sugar together in a large bowl. Add sifted ingredients to the creamed mixture, and beat well. Stir in zucchini and nuts until well combined. Pour batter into prepared pans.
4. Bake for 40 to 60 minutes, or until tester inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool in pan on rack for 20 minutes. Remove bread from pan, and completely cool.

I have been making LOTS of hair flowers and bows to prepare for craft show season. So far I don;t have any shows booked though! What a bummer! I better get some shows booked!

Before I do though I really need to finish my headband and yo-yo displays! I will post some pictures because they will be so pretty!

Sorry for the boring post this time. I am too bust reading other peoples blogs and being jealous!

Finally new stuff!

Though I have listed lots of new earrings in my shop I haden't listed any new sewn stuff in forever! So I finally got some new stuff made! Even better is I have a work room again! It took about 9 hours and $100! Whatever it was worth it! I am in heaven!

Remember the room before?

This is the after! Well afters!

Awesome right! Oh it feels so good!!

Here are some new aprons that are all in my Etsy right now!

Also some new earrings!!

Here are my counters! I have beat my sewing goal for the year and I am only 2 away from my crafting goal! I have a big project that I will start soon.. and I am 1/2 done with Roberts anniversary gift! (Our anniversary was Sep 17!) I promised him he could have it before Christmas! I also plan on making one of those craft felt play mats!!

A few things...

I have been making flowers for craft season like crazy! I also have done some sewing.... but today I decided to share a few things I want! So in case any of you are rich and feel like sending me a gift.... here are some ideas!

A little camper! Can you imagine the awesome cuteness that could be the inside of that with a little DIY love!!

A Brother 1034D serger. That way I can make some awesome new clothes!

This Misfits jacket!

An overhead projector. I can't draw but I can trace good. Then I can paint stuff!

A 1957 Bel-Air! Sooo pretty!

A 1967 Chevy Chevelle SS!

A winning lottery ticket!

A lifetime supply of fabric!

Lifetime supply of ribbon!

I would also like a house that stays clean forever and a healthy and good meal ready and hot for me 3 times a day!

I am on a roll!

Look at me go! I am remembering to blog! Now I just need to get some more followers right? How does one do that?

I just wanted to share some more stuff! :)

So first I crafted 30 bars of this soap for my sisters bridal shower! It was fun to do but it was time consuming. So I am in fact counting all 30 as an item each on my crafting counting! I cheated kinda and used melt and pour soap but I added die and fragrance. Then I tied ribbon around each one and put it in a little box that I did not get pics of!

Then remember those pretty sewing room pictures I posted before? They are DEAD! My little sister moved in with us so I had to move my whole room from a bedroom where I had 4 walls and a closet to the family room where I have 1 wall no closet and a pool table. The hours I spend in there cleaning it up isn't helping! There just isn't any place to put stuff right now. I need to figure something out!

Yea that is CRAZY right? I am shoving things into my bedroom but it's just making my bedroom look like chaos and my new sewing room! Ahhhh! Someone help me please!

Also the sewing stuff I have done is awesome! Have no fear! :) Well except 1 thing that my embroidery machine TOTALLY ruined. I cried!
