Happy New Year!

Well it's 2008 and I can't believe how fast time has gone by. I want to start using this blog and hope that this new format is easier. So this is me checking everything out and seeing how it works.

Here's the birdie. She's all grown up. Can't believe that she is already 4. I have a cute picture of her on her computer. That always freaks me out to see that she is old enough for one of these!

"Sew" today is Memorial Day

First I want to show you a picture that Abby made the other day. Now keep in mind that she is 3 1/2 years old! She loves to draw stuff like this. I would like for her to do this on paper but she REALLY likes her DoodlePro™. We have gone through 7 of these in a 2 year period!

I guess today is as good a day as any to get sewing! I try to sew a little each day so I won't quit. I really enjoy doing this sewing thing! I think the reason I like it is because I can get a pattern and do something different each time. I was beading for a long time but I was doing the same thing over and over. I couldn't just go to the beading store and find a pattern to try so I kind of got burnt out...

This is a great little outfit that I just finished for Abby.
I love the blue and white cotton fabric I have on the top. The bottoms are a white eyelet cotton. Very elegant! This was supposed to be one of those "easy" patterns but it didn't turn out that way... oh well.

Some more sewing outfits for Miss Abby

Here is a Christmas dress...

So I started sewing...

It's been awhile since I last posted. Actually a year. My DH and I just had our 11 year anniversary!

I started sewing classes in August 06 and just LOVE it. I had a great teacher up until Feb when she moved away from us. It was a very sad time for all. The upside is that I have a lovely group of women who come to my house on Wednesday nights and we sew our hearts out. I just love this!!

I thought I would post some of the things that I have made since I started. I will try to keep this up as best as possible! Thanks for looking! Enjoy!

Here we go... This is the first dress I made for Miss Abby.

10 Years ago today....

Well today is the Big 10!! 10 years ago tonight I married my wonderful prince. We had a beautiful wedding with a dessert reception. It was a fairytale type wedding for sure!! My marriage seems to be also. I have a wonderful husband and a delightful daughter. I don’t know how I got so lucky, but I just did and I’m keeping them both!! Phil sent me these gorgeous flowers today for the big day. He knows I don’t always like getting flowers but luckily he doesn’t always listen to me...:)

My advice to anyone seeking a husband out there is this… OPEN YOUR EYES AND DON’T SETTLE FOR WHAT YOU THINK YOU ARE ONLY GOOD FOR. My husband is TOTALLY not the type that I thought I liked and wanted, by far!! You never know until you open your eyes and see what’s out there and don’t settle!!!

With that said… Thanks Buggy for 10 great years and here’s to many, many more!!! 143!!!

Anyone watch ONE TREE HILL??

I don’t know why but I love this show!! I guess one of the reasons is because they really don’t seem to be too bitchy to each other. I think I like that because it gives me some faith in teenagers. I know that they are into a lot of things, but some of them are grounded enough to say NO which is a good thing at the age they are portraying. I like the fact that Haylie can say that she’s a virgin with confidence and a smile. That is so AWESOME!! This must in some part remind me of what it was like when I was a kid growing up. I think my friends and I had a lot of the same things going on in our group that these friends do and that was what makes it closer to my heart. Now I am only on season one so I could change my mind after that. So at the moment, season one is the one that grabs me!! If you haven’t seen it, check it out!!

I'm REALLY clueless!!! Take 2

Ok so I was trying to say in my post that never made it on here is that I am CLUELESS for some strange reason when it comes to making this thing look good and not have posts disappear... I will sit at the desk forever looking like a fool drooling all over the place trying to figure this thing out. I know it's not rocket science, but WTF is wrong with me??? Brain, engage, please!!! Grrr!!!

Um, How do you get to sleep without Ambien???

So last night I decide that I am going to try to sleep without using my wonderful Ambien. I totally love this stuff because I can actually sleep!! I bought some Nite-trition™ Restful Sleep Supplement from Origins yesterday. I really wanted to try to go back to using Melatonin for sleeping. I used it years ago and it worked for me, but I couldn't always get my brand and had to stop using it. I also thought that spending $15 a bottle was a lot...Off course this bottle was $35, go figure. On the other hand the ambien is $40 a month. It all works out in the end I think. So I used it last night and think it would have worked great if only my brain would have shut the hell up!!! Oh and if when it finally did shut the hell up and I would go to sleep that I wouldn't have the totally paralyzing dreams that I have that totally freak me out and make me force myself awake...grrrr. Not good...nope, not good at all... I think I might have gotten some sleep, but nothing to brag about that's for sure!!
So I might try this again tonight. I don't know. I just want to be able to get off of Ambien so I can stop the binge eating and finally lose some of my fat that I gained when I was pregnant with miss Abigail.
Oh the things we will do to think we will look better...
