Things just don’t go out the way you planned.

Yesterday was an extremely hard day. But by the end of the day it started getting a little better. Today I woke up determined to have a good day. Low and behold it worked.

Here is me at work, see how happy I am?
I have realized life doesn’t always go the way we would like it to. Things happen for a reason. I need to just pick myself up and move along. Easier said than done. But I’m trying to remind myself tomorrow is a new day and I can determine how it will go.

So I’m gonna put on my big girl panties and deal with it.




Things are not going good right now. I got a speeding ticket on my way to work.

I’m depressed about other things not working out in life.

I’ll be back when I have something positive to say. Trust me you will be thankful I’m stopping this post right here.

Edited to add:   I just got a raise at work!  The day is looking up!

Pink/Green Patchwork Pocket Purse

That was a lot of P’s!

I have been wanting to make myself a pink and green purse. I finally got around to doing it last night.

Sorry these pictures aren’t that cute but it was 1:10 in the morning. So I didn’t really care about making them cute.

And then the back.

I pretty much like it overall. If I made another one I think I would make the pocket match more. But it will work for me. 🙂

Have a good weekend!

I plan on spending lots of time in my sewing room this weekend so I might have things to show you! Yea!

Cherry Blossoms

Love me some cherry blossoms

I want to have another wedding so the theme can be cherry blossoms. But I think it might be a little early to renew our vowels.

I always am so sick of winter when January gets here. I’m ready for spring!

This weekend I made some cherry blossoms.

Handmade Cherry Blossoms

I collected some twigs out of my yard. Then I just cut 5 sided flowers out of tissue paper and hot glued them to the twigs. I finished them off with some glitter glue centers.

Hurry up Spring! I miss you!

Sleeping under the Stars

It is finally done! I had to buckle down before Christmas and get the bed painted. I love the way it has turned out.

My bedroom is finally done!  Yea!

Here is an owl collage I made using black and white paper. Very simple. Total cost was just the price of the frame. I had all the paper.

I found black and white damask wrapping paper at Hallmark and covered a stretch canvas. The wrapping paper is actually velvety on the black parts.

Ladybug likes to be the center of attention.


Another year…another sign im getting older.

Four eyes.

Recently I have been having problems focusing on things far away. Went to the optometrist and sure enough…I’m old.

So it’s 2008 now.

How on earth has it been 8 years since 2000 got here? Was anyone else expecting things to just quit working when the new year rolled over in 2000? I was a sophomore in high school that year and I was a little bummed when the lights stayed on lol. I was waiting for something exciting to happen.

Ok so a new year. A new me.

Things I want to work on in 2008

  • Get organized.
  • Get pregnant.
  • Finish all projects I start.
  • Finish projects that are already started.
  • Bust my fabric stash.
  • Cook more meals.
  • Be on time.
  • Be happy!

I think my list is very achievable, in that I am glad. I want 2009 to roll in with me overflowing with a feeling of accomplishment.

O and I also have one more “resolution.”

To post more on my blog.

So look out girls! Your going to get sick of me!
