tip of the week..

Tip of the week....

If you sponge starts to smell...get it damp and pop it in the microwave on a paper towel for 1 minute. Kills all that yucky bacteria.

For those of you without Facebook...

Never leave a 2 year old alone with a red Sharpie. I left him alone playing a computer game online to go snuggle back in bed with Tim. We were talking life, when Jackie boy came bouncing in like aint nothin happen. I stroll out to get more coffee and WHAM! It looked like a murder scene. RED everywhere. And it just kept getting worse. When I opened my laptop, there it was... all over my screen! Oh, hell no! "Tim! This is why I never come back to bed with you and leave him alone! It's all your fault for tempting me with warm snuggles!" So Timmy got down to binez with some goo gone and LOTS of elbow grease. When that wasn't working we tried rubbing alcohol. And that cleaned most of it all up. Except a little on my new very old sewing machine. I love you, alcohol. In all your forms. Rubbing and drinking.

I may have found my nitch!

I am creative. I know I am. My mom makes magic with glass. My sister and cousins are beautiful artists. My Grandma use to make stain glass windows as a career. It's in my blood! But I have never found my 'creative nitch'. I am good at kids crafts and playing pretend. I guess I have a creative imagination. I am great at storty telling and have always always done well in my creative writing classes and poetry. I have tried Photography and I am so so at it. I have tried knitting and crocheting and again, ok. I have no fashion sense and no decorating style. BUT maybe I can sew??
Dianne just gave me a VERY old sewing machine and I worked all night trying to figure out how to thread the thread and sew my first stiches. I had a blast! Sounds weird, but it was a rush! I spent 2 hours playing on it and I didn't want to get off! I can't wait till the kids go to bed tonight so I can play some more!! Here is what I made by just fooling around. I was quite proud! I didn't measure anything or cut straight,and the threading is all uneven, but it still came out cute, I think! And Jack will not leave the house without his Lamby's hat!

Wickedly Hot!

Here are some pictures from the night we went to see Wicked. I loved my dress! Too bad you can see my pink bra :( I didn't take the camera with me, and we were running late, so these are really rushed.
