Check it out!

Editing to link up here .. lots of creativity and talent to be seen.. go check it out.

I've sewn three of these checkbook covers recently .  The first two had minor mistakes ,, but I think 3rd times a charm.   I used this tutorial here and it really is easy to follow I just get in a hurry and mess it up. I made all of them using scrap pieces of fabric and a bandanna for one of the ruffle accents. 

 #1 - cant see the mistakes but trust me they are there.  I did pleats instead of ruffling the blue part. 

#3 - much better.  Didnt get a pic of #2.
i did pleats instead of ruffling the black piece. 

And because i've been slacking lately with my blog here's one more picture for this post.. Melanie bought her a kit for making cupcakes recently and made these for a coworker of hers.  I think she did a great job.  I love the big swirls. 

This past weekend my sweet honey thought of me when he saw this coffee mug and bought it for me..  its so me!  ha ha

Shower & Tower

This past weekend we had a baby shower at my mother-in-laws house.  This baby will be the first great grandbaby.  Her name is Brenna Claire and due any day now.  This is the cupcake tower and cupcakes I made.  I won the cupcake toppers awhile back and couldnt wait to use them.  For some reason I cant get the picture any bigger.

Zippered bag and sophomore year

My baby is in 10th grade this year... growing up way too fast.  Such a handsome young man with a good "head" on his shoulders most of the time and for that I'm very grateful.  Praying for a very successful year for him. 

We went to the coast this weekend and visited with family.  While the guys were fishing I had a little fun in Hobby Lobby.  And let me just say the one in Biloxi is much bigger than the one near me.  I bought some fabric and made a little zippered bag to go in my purse.  The first one didnt look so hot but the second was much better, not perfect,, but better.   I made it using the tutorial found here.  Only thing different was my fabric size which made the bag a little bit bigger.  But the tutorial was fairly easy to follow and I've only done a zipper one other time.   The finished size is approx 5x9 in. and plenty big to hold my makeup. 
Hope everyone has a great week..
