Sew Suite for you....

I hesitate on purchasing this set. But, with a little twisting of my arm, I bit the bullet and got it! And I have been having fun with this one. Super cute. I'm hoping that I can use it later on some of Aubrie's scrapbook pages. Oh, wait....who am I trying to kid. Actual scrapbook pages - ya right.

I made this card recently at a couple of workshops that I've done. I think everyone has like it!

Don't be afraid to cut your wide striped grosgrain ribbon in half. You'll be glad you did. It'll fray - that's okay - it's a great look.

Also - I recieved this:

from Kelli over at How cool is that! I'm feeling like a super stamper now!

When you receive this award you are to:

1) thank the person who gave this award to me and link it back to their blog

2) share 8 things about myself
  • I love all things crafty - in all mediums. Fabric, painting, clay, stamping, paper - you name it.
  • I drink a small pot of coffee EVERYDAY. I have a 4 cup coffee maker - and I anticipate my coffee every morning. With cream and sugar. I recently switch over to Truvia instead of sugar. I was okay with it, but really missed my sugar taste. It's just not the same.
  • I love snow. Oh, wait - maybe you already know that about me. Well, in case you didn't - now you know.
  • I prefer a good grilled steak over chicken anyday. I'm a red meat kinda gal.
  • I enjoy a good beer with my hubby while we make supper together and have our daily catch ups (as long as the kids are cooperative).
  • My fave movie of all time: Steele Magnolias. It might be a tear jerker, but after you watch it a hundred times, you begin to appreciate the humor and don't even think about crying. My fave line from the movie: "I smiled at the son-of-a-bitch before I could help myself" --Ouisa
  • I enjoy being outside - gardening, and sometimes just soaking up the sun. We plant a fair size garden every year. This year we'll hope for a little more time to actually enjoy the garden goodies. I also like to plant lots of flowers!
  • I'm a professional procrastinator! If you need any pointers on procrastinating, let me know.....I work best under pressure!

3) pass this award to 8 other individuals that I have recently discovered

4) leave a comment so that they can pass along the recognition!

Thanks Kelli for the award!
