Both of these aprons are my own creations...the top apron I've named the Nanny Apron after my Grandmother Lonnie whom I love dearly...
The 1/2 apron, I haven't decided yet...any suggestions would be greatly appreciated, I could even do a give-away to the person with the best name :) Wouldn't that be fun! It's a surprise though...so join in a play along, you might just be a winner!
Happy crafting ladies...get busy... the Holidays are upon us!

Yes, I made some pretty purchases on Sat...but they were also wise purchases...I will be posting some new creations soon, just to show you how well I did on my shopping adventure!
Here's a little hint of what I found at the Funky Junk Sisters...(snap shot swiped from my best gf and awesome photographer Tres Birds Photography) Stay tuned...and I promise to have photos of awesome creativeness...

Blew me away...completely. Had no ideal this would ever come up again. I discussed it with him intently, tried to talk him out of it, not wanting him to suffer anymore than he already has. It didn't work, his mind was made up and he wanted to enroll. So...that's what happened...
Best decision ever...he's having a great time, he's grown up a lot, matured and is really enjoying the new found freedom of teenager land. Thank you God for your direction and encouragement...you always lead us in the right direction. The only problem is if we decide to go our own way...
Here are some pictures of our handsome son

My girl, my sweet little girl is not much of a speller yet, but she got her point across :) She was very sorry for her temper-tantrum...and we all forgave her, of course! I had to kiss her all over and squeeze her tight for that sweet little note! Lord, I'm not ready for her to grow up...can you please keep her little forever?

On another note, with the "J" crew all back in school this year, I found a little free time. Yes, my dear ladies I had some crafty business to attend to. I found this Alexander Henry Sew Now, Sew Wow fabric over the summer, and it was love at first sight! I had to have it. Finally decided today was the day to create something with it. I whipped up this cute little sewing machine cover in about an hour...very easy...it normally would only take maybe 30 min. but I was up & down, up & down...you know how it is, always have a zillion things going at once. I used this little tutorial on CraftBlog.com.ua. What can I get myself into now?

Oh how fun it is to share the ooohs, awwwes, and giggles. I will remember these days forever...thank you Jesus for my little girl who's not so little anymore. Bless her as she continues to grow up into a beautiful young lady. Thank you for all the fun and joy she has brought into our lives...

....O.k...now that that's out of the way this bag I made for my cousin Jody. The patchwork purse is a really fun to make. Looking back on it now, I'm seeing it's time to do a little upgrading. I'm sure Jody definitely needs a new purse :) The purse itself, well, it needs some help, too. I'm gonna give it a little pizazz (did I spell that right?) The second bag I made for my Nan. I used Amy Butler fabric, of course who doesn't love Amy Butler fabric, and a round mesh place mat for the bottom. I threw together my own pattern, and in the end I think it turned out very cute and Nan really liked it. Here they are in all their glory.... and first timer mistakes :)

They even baked me a cake...(of course "J" 15 did most of the baking)
"J" 11 thought it would make Fabulous Mom feel even more Fabulous to think she was 25 again!
Big Daddy took me to Borders to get me this...it's been on the list for a while now :) I love it!
Lastly...the Proudfoots totally Rock! My new Marble board...we've played marbles every night since you gave it to me! Love you guys...

Final outcome...so what's the verdict? Wow, is all I can say! I'm so excited :) I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it! What do you think? There's still fabric in the center of the room that needs to be folded and put away, papers to be shredded, and books to be shelved, but I'm so happy with the end result, it's everything I wanted and more! Here it is....
