So I made it to the craft store finally. Since our towns just closed I have to drive 100 miles to get my crafty items. I really stocked up. I love Hobby Lobby I went through every isle and it only took me 45 mins. Alex and his buddy followed behind me the entire time telling me how stupid Hobby Lobby is. I really wanted to beat them... I got some great stuff and made some, wanna see? Here I'll show you,

These are really fun to make. I love shrinky dinks. I have a lot of great ideas and I'm excited to get busy! I'm stocking up my store before I open it on, its such a great place!

Pile Up of Projects!

I wish my hands could work as fast as my imagination does. I keep coming up with all these great ideas, thank god for project note books. I just can't keep up, between work and more work, cleaning the house, and feeding my man. I will get these projects finished, I WILL. I can do it, I just have to take it day by day. There's what I have as of now,

I got this great hello kitty fleece at my local fabric warehouse, (if you didn't know I'm addicted to anything Hello Kitty) the only problem is in the midst of surging the outside my foot got really heavy and my old girl couldn't keep up. I broke every single thread, the surger is like a UFO to me and I have now clue on how to re thread the four needles. I must break out the book..... ooh.

My big sister, Becki is due in November so I bought this cute flannel for receiving blankets. Surgers are the perfect tool for this however mine is out of order, as of right now. Shes not sure whats shes having so I picked out some neutral fabric.

I really enjoy needle work, its like coloring with a needle and thread. Here's a cute twist on the normal Hello Kitty, Hell Kitty. Evil I know but I thought it would be really cute framed and hung in the perfect place...

My custom stamp finally arrived from, I love it! I feel very professional. I ordered some plain labels and I'll stamp them for each of my projects.

Fall is on its way and its my favorite time of the year. I just started working part- time at a great store, The Little Red Hen. It's a gift shop that specializes in primitive aged gifts. I'm a lover of Wizard of Oz so when I saw these in the shop I had to get them. I do believe I'll leave them up all year long.

It's been a horribly long day for myself so I'm going to enjoy a nice glass of wine and head to bed. Until next time, I must leave on a very happy note, my cute little kitty Cheech, loves to perch on everything! Here he is in this favorite place the bathroom sink...

Born to Ride...

Found this on someones blog and it put a smile on my face:)

This Labor day weekend was very exciting. We really didnt have too much planned, just some rest and relaxation. We headed down to Armour on sat. to meet up with alex's family and head to Wagner for the poker run. It's was a gorgeous ride, I always forget how freeing it is to be behind the handle bars. It's was long, 13 stops, and my butt did get sore however it was totally worth it. Alex was a very lucky man, out of the 206 registered, Alex held the best hand, winning 1st place, with 4 8's. It was really sweet he even recieved one of those huge checks! 1,000 dollars richer and hopefully we can repair some things with the house before winter comes. I'm so happy for him, he really deserved it!

Then on sunday we checked out Halloween. I didn't know what to expect I'm usually ok with scary movies, (as long as it doesn't envolve mountain people eating other people). I was told it was very scary and when the ticket man said, "oooh more brave souls", when collecting our ticket I thought what did I get myself into. Leaps and bounds from the first Halloween, Rob Zombie put hes sadistic twist on a cult classic and I give it 2 thumbs up! This is one for your collections!
