....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....

I, the fabulous wife that I am, did however wake early in wee morning hours on Valentines Day...rouse my sweet adorable daughters to come and bake for their dashingly, dear, father who so unselfishly drove to work on Sat. morning. "Let's go bake Chocolate Cupcakes for Dad and surprise him when he gets home...we can get all dressed up, too..." "Yes, yes...they squealed to each other..." And so the morning began...

So tell me what'cha all think?... Before:
I don't think I really like the new shelf in the laundry area...it's too cute to be stuck upstairs where no one can see or appreciate it's cuteness. I think I may move it down stairs into my sewing/craft/office room. Don't you think? I LOVED the way it turned out...in fact I loved it so much that I took some $$$ that I earned (yes, I discussed this with Big Daddy P.S.) and I went and bought this...I need all 5 of you ladies that read this blog to give me your HONEST opinion! I'm going to paint my sewing room this color....

As we ( myself and the oldest "J") let's call him 15, drove to SVE this morning, we moaned and groaned over the new fallen snow. Oh how we were so sick of it...tired of it...enough already! Please bring us some sun, just a little, it's not like we're asking for a lot, right? Complain, complain, complain...blah, blah, blah....
