I'm doing the "Instagram" thing now, as well as the "Viddy" thingy.
This could get interesting.

Let's Get Physical

My new BFF arrived yesterday via Fed Ex and was assembled late last night. I'm fixin' to finish up my Earl Grey and give her a spin. Before I became a full time craftwife, my 4:30 am mornings began with a 60 minute cardio workout in Santa Ana, on my way to the office. Things sure have changed for me since leaving the OC. The smell of the Pacific, & a salty marine layer have been replaced by an interesting banquet of roses & jasmine, with just a hint of dog crap. The melody of seagulls and waves has been rendered to doves cooing in unison with sirens blaring.  Did I mention that I miss home?   I also miss those pre dawn workouts and the heavenly endorphins a good workout delivers, but the thought of getting into the car, driving, parking, and finding my way to a gym, if not en route to work, is not appealing. Well, the gym has now come to me. No more chunky monkey!!!! Happy Wednesday, all.

Circo De Los Muertos

Wednesday, April 25, 2012

AHA!!!!!! experienced an "AHA!" moment late yesterday. We've all seen the shabby chic fabric rosettes everywhere these days from simple embellishments to hair accessories and even as jewelry. I've admired them from afar but believed that they were too time consuming to create. While sewing yesterday evening, I reached over to grab a scrap of fabric which I had intended to throw out.
Mr. stepped into the room and began sharing about an incident which occurred earlier during his work day. As I listened, I unwittingly fiddled and twirled the scrap of fabric around. I looked down and to my amazement I held the cutest fabric rosette between my fingers. Yay! now has a new lovely to incorporate into her work. I found this tutorial on youtube which demonstrates how to create another super cute version of the ever so prevalent shabby chic rosette. 
 Get your craft on and give it a try for yourselves! ♥

Sailor Jerry Apron

This was one of the easiest and fastest aprons
I've ever made to date.  
I got the idea from the following blog:

I purchased this men's shirt at my favorite thrift store for $1.50. 
 Pink tags were half price that day.
 Okay, I'm the Lazy Blogger, remember?
To make a long story short, I'll just share lots of pictures.
Ta Da!!!!!

Bag Redo

So I came across a handmade bag that I had never used before.  I'm not sure where I got the bag from and for the record, did not design or create it. I gave it the once over twice and thought to myself that there is always room for improvement and a makeover was just the thing this thing was screaming for.

So Far. So Good.

Not too shabby for a fabric remnant that was less than half a yard and an old tattered table cloth.  
This is coming along nicely.
