It's my party and I'll cry if I want to......

Well, today is my birthday!!  I feel like I just celebrated it last week.  I can't believe it's been a whole year already. 

Here I am.....lil ole me!!  Honestly how old do I look to you? 

I look 21 huh.....if only that were true, lol!

Is it me or what, but as I age I feel like I have no patience,  I get annoyed easily,  I get grumpy when I don't have my Sunday afternoon nap.  I forget everything - the Hubs says because my head is already full with too much information.  He's so sweet. 

  I just want to say that I am so thankful to be here and that I am able to share this day with my friends and family.  I'm thankful for the sweetest hubby in the whole wide world.  I tell him that he's lucky because I don't ask for much, even though he would gladly fulfill my every want.  This year for my birthday all I "want" are 5 things:

1.  A bicycle - yup I've been wanting a bike for a while!

2.  A darning foot for my sewing machine - I have quilts that I want to finish up with some fancy designs.

3.  Amazon gift card - $25 bucks should do it! I like to buy books for my kindle fire and since I'm a cheap-o queen I like to buy the books that are 99 cents.

4.  Since I have class tonight, I want to have a dinner date on Friday at our favorite Mexican restaurant.


5.  A crawfish boil with my friends and family this weekend. YUMMMMMM!

See....not too much right?

We'll see what happens!

Another gift......Tote/Baby bag

Welcome everyone....thanks for stopping by.  I want to also say hi to all my new readers glad you are here.  

Okay, here is a new tote/baby bag that I was working on.  I also made bibs and burpies but you've already seen what I can do so I won't show you them, LOL!  This gift set was for my niece.  One tote, two bibs and two burpies.  

Here are the fabrics that I used for the tote.
The pink and orange were used for the inside of the bag and the pockets.

Here is the finished product.  I just love this bag.  It's big enough for all the baby items that she will need to carry around.  A big pocket on the inside, two big pockets on the outside and a magnetic snap to close it up.

Sorry I didn't get enough pics or any of the inside.  I was in a hurry and was already walking out the door.  As you can see it was all ready to be given away.  We had to drive all the way to the other side of town.  Since Houston was hosting the NBA All-Star Game, it was a nightmare getting anywhere with all of the traffic, plus we're already dealing with construction everywhere...so you can just imagine.

We finally made it to the baby shower.  The tote and the bibs & burpies were a big hit.

Well, everyone have a fabulous week.

Handmade Valentine's Day Card

Whoa...next week is Valentine's Day! Really, didn't we just leave January. 
For me February is filled with lots of special days not only V-day but B-day's...which includes mine as well.  I won't go into much detail about my b-day, that will be for another ranting post about how I'm getting old, all the grey hair I have, the wrinkles that pop up out of nowhere, my grumpiness, my forgetfulness....okay I'm going off track here. 

This post is about a super duper easy handmade Valentine's Day card.  If you're a crafterista like myself you will definitely have everything that is needed in your stash of craft supplies.

Card stock
Letter Stamps/Ink
Scrap fabric
Sewing Machine

Honestly, look how easy it was to make.  I stamped what I wanted it to say.  I cut hearts out of the fabric.  Then sewed them on.  You could even hand stitch it.

I love my hubby and loving him "IS" the best feeling in the world!

Sorry peeps!!  This is the only V-Day project that I had to post.   I hope you like it!

Everyone have a fabulous day.

Early Spring means hard work...

Ole...Punxsutawney Phil says Spring is coming early!  Well I believe it.
Living in Houston,Texas the weather is very unpredictable.  We can go from the low 30s to almost 80 the next day.  Basically chilly to extremely hot and humid. Awesome! Right now it's raining, it's pouring and the old man is snoring.....(you know you started to sing this tune...lol!)  

Now is about the time that the Hubs and I start pulling weeds and mulching.  I wait to cut the trees till March.  Sometimes we get that 1 last hard freeze that kills everything and that sucks.

This coming weekend we'll be working in the back yard.  As you can see from the pic below we're going to be super busy and I foresee backaches, broken nails, splinters, thorns and lots of yucky bugs to swat away.

Look at all of this.....I promise you there is a sprinkler attached to a water hose and a row of moss rock that outlines the bed under there.
