not SEW happy....

so i found out yesterday that sewing is hard.... i had wanted to make a skirt similar to one i already own...figured i could just trace the patter from the original sirt and whip it out in a few short hours.... that was not the case. i was getting so frustrated. i really want to learn though, so i think i am going to look into a sewing class...
happy sunday!
i'll be doing yardwork at my momma's for her birthday material gifts, just some good hard labor!

Sew happy!

i have got the sewing bug... i have all these thoughts and ideas and inspiration floating in my head and all i want to do is sew....the only draw back is i am not really good at it...i can do the basics but no much more.... gonna work on it and try to become good. I haven't been very inspired to scrapbook lately... i want to do other artsy things.... which is soooo unlike me....normallly all i want to do is scrapbook...there is always a bug yearning to create a page....

so for know,here is a site that i am totally inspired by RIGHT NOW! loving the colors, flowers and yummy photography!


and one more thing...i am working on learning reverse applique right now...if anyone knows how to do this well, or has some advice...i'd love it! email me @

This entertained me for a few minutes... enjoy!

Don't tell me your age; you probably would tell a falsehood anyway-
but your waiter may know!


This is pretty neat.
It takes less than a minute. Work this out as you read ..
Be sure you don't read the bottom until you've worked it out!
This is not one of those waste of time things, it's fun.

1. First of all, pick the number of times a week that you would like to go out to eat.
(more than once but less than 10)

2. Multiply this number by 2 (just to be bold)

3. Add 5

4. Multiply it by 50

5. If you have already had your birthday this year add 1757...
If you haven't, add 1756.

6. Now subtract the four digit year that you were born.
You should have a three digit number.

The first digit of this was your original number. (I.e., How many
times you want to go out to restaurants in a week.)

The next two numbers are

YOUR AGE ! ------ (Oh YES, it is!!!)
