A verse to ponder today...

The day is drawing near. The BIG day! Our birthday party for Jesus. Nothing is done. Good thing I work well under pressure:) HA, sure sounds good doesn't it?? Lucky for me there are some wonderful blogs out there with tons of wonderful ideas. Most of them are QUICK, CHEAP, and FUN to MAKE. So THERE Santa I'm going to get it done anyway...lol...funny how we (I) can psych ourselves(MYSELF) up isn't it? But, I am feeling somewhat energetic(till the coffee wears off ;)
If you are on my present list LEAVE now or at least act surprised on the BIG day! So far, I have some "wellness" kits to make. Double Chocolate Waffles, Chocolate Cobbler, and Chili mix to sift together. 2 aprons to put together, and.....OH YEAH, the reusable shopping bags to make and playdough and baby doll clothes for Emma. THIS is going to get good! Lucky for me there's recipes on ourbestbites and lollychops has amazing printouts!!  
AND NOW.....
In a never b4 tried... new thing I hope I learned today... EVENT!!!!

This adorable two piece ensemble was pieced together by ME...WHOHOO:) With no pattern I might add! Although a pattern would have been helpful. The top is too short:( and I HATE the ties on her top. However, as I am one of those "thrifty" people, we are waiting for "the right thing" to show itself(as in I find at a yard sale:) The outfit was repurposed from a juniors size skirt(size 11 I think?) and a denim placemat. The green tee was a gift, which works perfectly! The buttons I added are from the Kajilllion that I have laying around. This was the first thing that i "repurposed" that she could actually wear. I am still trying to translate measurements from body to material.....THIS may take awhile. LOL
I have a couple of other things done that I will try to get on soon!  I would love to hear what you think!
Kisses & Hisses from pitterpat and the sticky cat! hehe :)

  1. I hope you had a wonderful holiday and are getting off to a great start to the new year. I wanted to thank you for entering my Sew Mama Sew Giveaway. I know that that was a busy week for everyone trying to enter all of the contests and it was hard to actually take the time to get a good look at the blogs. So I would like to invite you back to one or both of my blogs to look around and see if one of them is a place that you would like to come back and visit again. If so, please consider putting me on your blog list so you will know when I post. My sewing blog is www.sewingwithtrudy.blogspot.com and my art blog is www.artisticcreationswithtrudy.blogspot.com I would also like to remind you that my 9 year old daughter has her own sewing blog. You can visit her at www.sewingsister.blogspot.com
    Thank you so much for your time, and I hope you have a beautiful day.

    God bless,



Have fun, but, please mind your manners:)
