Well, I'm getting ready to go out with some girlfriends tonight. All the girls I went to high school with and the last time we were all together was when I found out I was pregnant with Nathan. The time before that, the last time we were all together was highschool.
OH, your girlfriends. I always think about them and cherish them, and now I'm really going to miss them!! Even though we didn't get together often, I knew they were close.
I am taking a disposable camera, no wait maybe I'll take it and the digital, so I can blog about our night!
Off to have one last blast with my GIRLFRIENDS!

Hot Fun in the Summer Time!
What a flipping major score!!! We got this Bonsai Blast for $29.95!!! They go for $129.00 at Wal-mart!!! Yes yes you can be jealous. I did try it out...and I failed misseribly..this is a toy for little ones for sure... Jacob loves it and Nathan's getting used to it too!
We are having a moving/yard sale tomorrow to get rid of some furniture and such. I am also destashing my beads....*gasp* I know.. breathe breathe. I have no clue where we are going to live, but I'm sure it will be smaller that what we have. haha. I am excited! And scared too LOL

As far as making things...I started on the cars pillow case but haven't finished it. I'm just to busy with the kiddo's. But looking back I'll be glad I had this time with my nieces and nephew when I'm up in New Hampshire.

Anybody wanna buy a house?? Kentucky is a cheap place to live!! :)

It's been awhile since I've posted things I've made!! I've been busy with 5 kids, but I finally got back to the sewing machine and finished up the Elvis Coin purse and the Turtle coin Purse. These are on my Esty Shop, Click on the pictures and they will go to that item in my Etsy
The fabric above is some that I bought at a cute little quilt shop in the Highlands. Fun to browse through there!

This (above) is some fabric that Tamelyn sent me with some knitting information :):):) Yes Tamelyn, I'm having fun with the knitting info and have ONE to come later!

This fabric (above) and pile of zippers is from Heather. We went in together on a lot of 100 zippers on ebay... what fun!

Sorry to keep anyone reading in suspense!

We have opened the letter.......
We are talking it over.......
We just have to decide if we want to do it or not......

If we do, I'll still be able to stay home with the boys and I'll have to work my patootie off and get my Stampin' Up going up there!! I still want to CREATE!! I keep thinking of the store I saw that said "Crafters Wanted" and I'd love to see what I could offer!!

I just have to say my friend Tamelyn is AWESOME!!!!! She sent me some goodies I've been looking for forever!!!! Tamelyn, they boys thank you too for all the goodies you sent them!! The Planet cards are too friggin' cool!! Jacob and I will enjoy those this summer! I already have one side of the "project" done! I don't wanna tell anyone what I'm doing just yet because I want to unveil the little bugger when it's done!! tee hee!!! Thanks!

Finally, here are some pictures from Brent's fight over the weekend. :) He rocks! The referee was Matt Hughes (for any of you UFC fans, you know who he is.)

Funny how one little envelope can hold so much of the unknown in your future!! Brent finally got a letter from Deka...this will help us decided if YES we want to go or NO, we don't want to go. And as luck would have it, because I always seem to get the BAD luck, Brent is OUT OF FRIGGIN' TOWN!!!!!! I dare not open the letter! I want to so bad, but this is for him! I'll wait until he calls tonight and then tells me to open it!! (I Hope).

In other new... Brent had another fight over the weekend in the Caged Inferno II. I'll have to get some pictures from the fight. Brent did a good job and came out victorious! I was very happy and it took me about 2 fights after that for my nerves to calm down. We went out eat with some of the guys Brent trains with and it turned out to be a fun night. This is the only picture I have at the moment. This was the face off between Brent and his opponent. Brent's the tall one on the right. The other guy didn't look that much shorter when they were fighting. I think he was crouching down like a boxer in the picture or something. Anyway...GOOD TIMES!! haha

I started on an Elvis coin purse today..... the tension on my sewing machine is goofing off today and I can't seem to straighten it out. Maybe tomorrow I'll try again. I've already ripped it out twice... I was getting mad, so I put it away.
Today has flown by for some reason. I did get to stop by the Forget-Me-Not quilt shop today and I picked up a couple nice fat quarters. Who know's what they'll be, but they were cute!
Pictures later. I'm to tired to hunt down the camera, and boy it's hot! I just don't wanna move from the cooool basement.

Last night after "knitting practice" (as Jacob calls it, it's my night out I go knitting with some girlfriends at a coffee shop), I went to Walmart to browse. I stumbled into the fabric section, ok ok I ZOOMED into the fabric section and just enjoyed looking at all the fabrics with out being rushed. Saw some fabric that I tried bidding on off of ebay and didn't win, and I didn't buy it at Walmart either. Guess the urge left me for that one. Then I stumbled across this....

Remember I told you we went and saw Cars at the drive in the other night?? Well I saw they had 3 different kinds of Cars fabric and I just had to have some. I thought, what could I make?! Then I thought, PILLOWCASES!! SO I got enough to make both boys pillow cases out of the fabric. I'm excited, Jacob didn't seem to excited. *frown* Maybe after I acutally make it, he'll see what I mean!!

Then I strolled over to the bargin bin and rooted through there and picked up these for remnants that were on sale!! The Elvis fabric is SO COOL, the striped fabric and yellow fabric will make great linings for coin purses, and the butterfly print.....well I just don't know yet what the future holds in store for it, but it was cheap and on sale and pretty, so I got it! I love bargin bins! I wish they had an empty one beside it so I could look at every one of them! I know I looked silly holding ones I didnt' want and I was sticking them everywhere just to get to Elvis at the bottom!! The bin came up to almost my waist and it was FULL of fabrics that were cut wrong or left over or whatever!
Here's a close up of the Elvis fabric!! it's going to make CUTE coin purses I think!! Unless I think of something else to do!!! who knows..maybe a mid size clutch or something!

Last Friday I made some coin purses!! These will eventually go on my Esty store which I hope to have up by the end of the week!! I plan on making more of these with different fabrics since my friend Heather and I went in on an ebay lot of 100 zippers!! woohoo!! Love me some zippers!

This fabric is a design by Suzy Toronto. I love her art work! Side one view.

Side two view
I did the cross stitch on this little Eeyore coin purse the week I was in the country with my SIL and all our children. The outside fabric was a gift from my friend Mamarox, and the inside fabric is pooh fabric I got on sale at Walmart in the sale bin! It's a great place to get small amounts of fabric for little projects like this!

The boys and I made sock puppets yesterday. I found an Oscar the Grouch sock which Jacob said was for him, and then a sock with a bunch of flowers on that was for me, but Nathan liked it too, so we share. I had a sock with dogs on it for Nate, but he was off playing after he colored his mouth in. I finished it off and I hope today to get a puppet show from the boys!! I'll have my video camera ready for sure!

Yet another purse!! This one will probably go on etsy once I get my "store" set up and get more stuff for the store!

This is a very special picture. This is my Uncle Edward, Jacob is named after him, Jacob Edward. It was so cute, Jacob kept calling him Mr. Edward. We don't get to see him that much because he lives in Florida. We always enjoy seeing him and our Aunt Janice (Who I didn't get to see this time :o( )

It's Summer, It's Kentucky, and It's HOT!!! I had to cut off some of my hair!! Here's the new do!! I love it! I can feel the breeze on my neck!! WOO What a feelin'!

Monday, June 05, 2006

This is the first purse I've ever made. It's much cooler to carry around than the wool one!! I was getting hot just carrying it around!!

I even put a pocket on the inside, My cell phone fits in there perfectly!
I cut out more fabric tonight to make another purse. Hopefully I'll have time this week to work on it, but I'm helping at VBS in the craft depot! Fun Fun!! I am enjoying it!

Hi there, I'm still here...any one still reading this, checking up on me?!?
Anyway.... I was out of town for a couple days. I took the boys down to the country where my parents have some land and a trailor about an hour out of the city. They had a good time with their cousins, and my uncle was in from Florida and we got to see him (the uncle my son is named after, very cool I think.)
Before we left town I had some things going on artsy/crafty wise. I hosted a magnet swap and finally got the last of the packages sent out today, so here are the pictures from the participants.
