i am addicted! i just can't help it. i want to sit all day long and make things. I want to sew baby shoes, i'm itching to piece together another quilt (it's been three years!), and i'm addicted to photoshop.
Luckily i've been able to release all of this pent up energy into worthwhile projects. I'm slowly making some waves on the baby shoe production. I sold $100 worth last week.
My quilt itch is sortof being mended. I'm using most of my days off to help Jeane finish her quilt. Last summer, while pregnant i started a little group. (mostly to invite those who needed extra space, like myself, to sew) Jeane's quilt has just been sitting there. It's been on my mind, mostly because she needed a buddy and at the time i couldn't do it. So, now, i have HER quilt at my house and am working on it for her. Don't worry, i didn't steal it!!! Promise! She is AMAZING. She is one of those ladies who has many many years of experience and advice to share. Her adventures are great fun to listen to and i've enjoyed getting to know her. The more i got to know her, the more i realized that physically she wasn't really in the position to finish this quilt by herself. I am now doing the quilt for her so that she too can enjoy the pleasures of a handmade quilt (because it is so yummy!).
I'm getting plans in order for lil H's birthday. it's a month away, and i would be lying if i said that i just started thinking about what i wanted to do. I want it to be simple and fun and because he sortof just sits there and stares at kids he's not too familiar with i figured the fewer little faces the better. Plus, i think that even though the 'FIRST BIRTHDAY' is a big deal, it's more of a deal to the crazy mom who wants everything to be perfect. yes i understand that I have the potential to be that crazy mom. however i'm not going to be. there will be cupcakes and few decorations (because those are my favorite part to make!) and of course the TANK. I've decided that I don't want to make the cupcakes... I can do it and that knowledge is enough. My postage stamp kitchen just can't take the beating of baking and decorating. Atleast i can't take the beating of the space i have to create in there... so i'm going to purchase simple cupcakes and then maybe decorate them... i dunno, we will see how i feel about a week out from the date.
I've been working on some ideas for business cards. I'm convinced i need a letterpress kit or an emosser. They look essential for all great crafting needs. But before i can make the cards i need to work on a name... So i am working on that at the moment. and i know that i can make them, especially since i have so few that are going out at a time.
