Making a list... and checking it twice

I have approximately 10 to do lists going right now. I can mark this one off though. I made this sweet little baby blanket for Chance's cousin Chase and his wife Jessi, who are expecting a baby in February.

It was simple by design, but I am very happy with how it turned out. I think I googled "minky blankets" and looked at a few ideas then took my scissors to the fabric. I used my table top as the pattern... it looked like the right size. After cutting out my two coordinating fabrics, I sewed right sides together. Then after pressing again, I sewed up the turning hole, then zig zaged a border around the edge.

I hope they like it, I think they will. It really is a perfect present, very easy to adapt to a nursery theme or such...

oh my goodness

Here is what you must do:
1. go to the store
2. purchase seasonal cinnamon flavored cool whip
3. make coffee
4. put giant scoop of aforementioned (still frozen) cool whip in coffee
5. accomplish great feats

(what's that in the background you ask? Oh those would be some freaking adorable invitations I am crafting up. Did you know that 2 books of stamps cost over $17... shesh)

In progress...

My bathroom started out four years ago as a shabby chic black, white, and pink number... If you have been reading my ramblings for long, you might recall I made my very own shower curtain and started the update to something more retro/modern? Its my own mix, I'll give it that. Now after a very invasive update to my bathroom, I am painting my vanity to add to the shabbyretromodern theme...

We will see how this works out. Also stay tuned to see how my $63 flooring update goes. Also, word to the wise, when your dad tells you to wipe off a paint can really well and use a hammer to reseal it, you should listen to him. In four years when you need some more light pink paint and you open up said can of paint to find it half solid with chunks of rust from the uncleaned lid, it can be rather disheartening.

Not ready

There is Christmas stuff at Target already... whaaaattt? I am not ready. I can't believe how fast this year has gone by.

If however you are in the mood to Christmas shop, you should save all of your dollars and come to the Indie Craft Fair that is happening the first weekend of December. I don't know all the details yet, but when I do... I will fill you in... I need to get back to crafting mania and stock up, I'm way behind Target!
