I just have to share how much I LOVE my Blackberry! Those that call them "Crackberry's" are NOT kidding! It makes my addiction to Twitter and Facebook a breeze (They say the first step to recovery is admitting you have a problem!)!! I can TWEET anytime anywhere...haa haa! Ohhhhh the important things in life ;) When I take my runs in the a.m., my Blackberry is my MP3 player! I could NEVER make it without my tunes!

And yes, you are seeing that right...there is lovely make-up in the crease! NICE You'd think I could take better care of my baby ;)

The sometimes 'forgotten child'...

I feel like I get so busy with the other the 2 kids that I sometimes don't give enough attention to my super sweet 17 year old! He is such a GREAT kid! I could brag and brag and brag about him. I won't bore you to tears ;) He is the most mechanically minded person I know! He has good grades, a great job that he loves and works harder than most men I know! Any "honey-do's" that I need done around the house...this kid does them! He babysits Brayden! Just a wonderful man! I'm sure going to miss him when he leaves the house!

Brayden and most of the other little neighborhood boys think he is VERY COOL!

He HAD to redo his pickup and repaint it! Always a job in progress with him! You can see that he has constant projects going on! What can I's what he loves :)

I love you Mr. Jordan...more than you will ever know!

Sushi and Japanese Beer! LOVE!

For those of you that know know how much I love good sushi and Japanese beer! Tonight is the night to sneak away from the kids and treat myself to one of my first loves in life!! YUM!
Nothing is better than a great California roll. Always a great choice anywhere we go!

Another FAV is shrimp tempura! This one is fried tempura...which I like but I'd rather have it cold! Hubby loves them like this!

And my very favorite beer to wash it all down...Sapporo! A great Japanese beer! I've been known to drink way too many of these ;) May tonight too! LOL!

The HAPPIEST weekend to you all!

Fabric teaser... I'm working on something super HOT for the moms out there :)
I'm using my FAV new colors for the fabrics! I reallllly want to do
my sewing room in these colors! They are so fun and springy! I can
already see Paul's face when I tell
Ok, ok...the fabric...

Isn't it fun? Can't wait to get my project done!
Happy weekend!

Mother's Day Gifts

I got an order for some pincushions for Moms Day! Just thought I would share. This is the "Low Cal" version of my original cupcake pincushion. I love how this one turned out! Another super sweet strawberry too! These are so fun to make!

Now a weekend of sewing clothes for a super cute baby boy ;)

New Starbucks addiction!!

So I've heard all this buzz over the Green Tea Fraps at Starbucks and had to try one!
OMG....yum! I'm a big fan of green tea anyway so in a blended form was heaven to me! These DO have to be somewhat healthy right? Maybe if I got them without the whip? LOL! One thing for me to be thankful for is that Starbucks is all the way on the other side of town! It's not real convenient for me to get one! Thunder thighs would be knocking on my door and my pocket book would be hurting!

And you MUST go get one of these!!! For those of you that know me...I'm a major cup ADDICT! I love cool cups! Weird I know! Sad thing is it's rubbed off on Peyton! We love our cups! Anyway, they just started selling these insulated cups! Yes, that is a REAL cup and straw!!! LOVE LOVE LOVE these Starbucks! Thank you for feeding into a double addiction of mine ;)

The DS Demon...

My little guy is a Nintendo DS (and Wii) demon! Maybe I should be calling the game systems 'demon'. We usually have to fight him tooth and nail to get him outside! He LOVES his games!

He's pretty much mastered all Mario games! Will be so happy when a new one comes out!! We've had to move on to other games such as Poke'mon and he really likes Kirby.

Check out the orange fingers and face! CUTE huh? The DS stays filthy no matter how many times we clean it! He's also a junk food junkie ;)

The orange culprit....CHEESE PUFFS!

No matter how much the game systems make me CRAZY....I love you for who you are little one!

Snack day...

YESSSS, another "Brayden school post"...well kind of ;)
He had to take snacks to school today so we worked on
an extra special treat for him to take! YUMMY mini cake
ball cupcakes! He was the biggest the
bowl that is ;)

Chili's Day

Bray's class won a free lunch at Chili's restaurant! They got to ride the school bus (of course the highlight of their trip!). Look how tiny he looks getting off of it! Makes a mommy sad! They were so well behaved and really enjoyed their cheese pizza and Sprite! Way to go Pre-Kers on your win and a big WAY TO GO Mrs. Magnus and Mrs. Jenkins for teaching these kids how to be so respectful and kind :)

Pet week...

Brayden's class had PET WEEK last week. He wanted to bring Elvis to
school to show his teachers and classmates! Elvis was super sweet
to the kids but REALLY wanted me to hold him and take him!
All of those kids made him very nervous! Can't you see the fear on
his face?

Cutest little watch dog...

Every day when I sew, this sweet little baby sits on my feet under my chair! Elvis is such a momma's boy and keeps constant tabs on where I'm at! Please know that when I send a custom made set out to you that it has been highly protected by the sweet Mr. Elvis ;)

Modkid Patterns

Lookie what came in the mail for me today! WOOHOO! I've been very unpatiently waiting for these to get here! I can't wait to sew something up!
Look HERE to see Patty's blog and find a list of places to buy yours!

Time consuming patchwork...

This is what I have been working on all day! For those of you that don't do it, patchwork is soooo time consuming! It takes so much time to cut all of these pieces out and then place them all just so to make the design look right. Not to mention, sewing all of them down. It's taken me most of the day just to get this one leg done on this custom. I sure hope my customers appreciate all the time and hard work that goes into a pair of these jeans :) I KNOW they do!!

The Pampered Life...

So, it's been at least 3 weeks since I've had a nail appointment! Now there are a couple that are determined to come OFF! They are constantly pulling my hair, getting caught in threads! WHY can't I find the time to go get these awful things filled? My customs and my kids keep me away from doing anything for The kids are worth it ;)

Welcome to the life of a pampered overworked seamstress/stay at home mom!!! Isn't my 'quick fix' just the cutest?!! Don't be jealous!
