MY WEEKEND IN EXILE

I went home from work last Friday night and did not leave my house until I went to work on Monday morning. I had such a good weekend. I did laundry, some cleaning, some movie watching and some creating. I am enjoying my craft room ssssoooo much. I was not using it until Babygator came and painted it. Now I cannot stay out. So now lets play show and tell! *grins*

I am changing up my office some. I have taken down my Mindy Cow Memorial Pictures and am replacing them with M's. All sorts of M's.

I took a frame I found at a thrift store for $.50
frame first

Cleaned it up and printed an M on some paper and TA DA!

I made a pillow for Gingerbean to lay on while she is in the craft room with me. She will only stay in there if I am NOT sewing. She thinks that the sewing machine is going to eat me.

I wanted a new clock in my craft room so I altered an old one that I had. This is totally easy to do and really cheap if you ever want to do it.

And finally purses! These are bigger than my wristlet but smaller than an actual purse. This one is mine. This is where you can find the tutorial that I used. It is REALLY well written and totally easy to follow!

  5. I LOVE the fabric you picked out for Rach. She will love, Love, LOVE it.

    You should make some "re-useable" bags for grocery/walmart or where ever so you don't have to use plastic bags.

    And seriously, don't worry about me. I want to bitch about my job, but can't because a ton of people from work read my blog and are on my facebook. I'll give you a hint and you'll understand if you've watched the news. I work in Real Estate. See now you understand.

    Word Verification imicalin. Sounds like I'm a calling doesn't it?

  12. Mindy, I didn't know you were so talented! I LOVE your stuff! Great ideas! Thank you!

    I was a great swimmer, but never wanted to be on swim team in high school because a) they practiced before school and I wanted to sleep & b)my curly hair would be curly & fuzzy & it was the 70's & everyone wore their hair long & straight. (which meant I slept in huge pink curlers)...I never regretted not being on high school swim team. Plus, when I was a life guard, I HATED the responsibility...was always afraid someone might actually need to be rescued on my watch. It was so stressful. When my license lapsed, I didn't renew.

    And...I love weekends like that. I love Sundays like that.
    xo, Cheryl
