..great googly moogly..

I thought going 4 days without blogging was bad. And now here's it's been what, 9? I'm slacking. This past week has been really.. eventful :) We're talking cars breaking down 2 hours from home, new mattress shopping and delivery,3 birthdays (2 birthday dinners, 1 birthday cake to be made), and a meeting with the vice principal at the high school I substitute at, because some boys in my room got in trouble last week, and I had to give them the details of it all. Even as an adult, it's no fun getting called to the principal's office, lol! :)

So, some pictures to go with my update.. Well, this kid turned 20 last week.

Even at 20 I can call him a kid. He's my little brother. I can't believe it's been 20 years since the day I watched him come in to the world. Him and mom came over and I made him dinner. He wanted lasagna. I would have made him just about anything he asked for, only because he never asks for anything. He's a great kid with a great heart, and it makes me feel good to know that even though he's a 20 year old guy, he would never pass up an opportunity to hug my neck or tell me he loves me. Happy Birthday Bubba :)

And, before I get all weepy, let's move on to some aprons. Remember the embroidered Coffee Apron I made for the Hot Drinks Swap?? Well, at the time I couldn't say who it was for. Secret Swap :) Well, it was for a lovely girl named Bley, from Bibliosophy Books. She is super talented, and I was so excited to send the apron to her. Well, I signed up for another apron swap. It's the Sassy Apron Swap, themed around holiday cookies. Well, I got my apron in the mail the other day, and guess who it was from? Yip, Bley!! Check it out..

And look at the other great goodies she sent me. Don't you just love the gingerbread man fabric?!

Thanks so much Bley, I love my apron, and I can't wait to wear it while I do my Christmas baking! :D

And for the same swap, this is the apron I made for my partner. She wanted frilly with snowflakes.. I hope she likes it :)

Ok, so, life is still full speed ahead. I have a feeling that won't change until after Christmas. But that's ok :) But I promise I'll try not to let 9 more days go by without updating. I mean, I need it just to remind myself what is going on! :)

Peace, love and koala fuzz y'all!


  1. OMG I love that frilly apron!!! Too cute!

  2. Wicked cute apronness! I love the one that you made! So adorable! I understand about the sibling sister is 21, she'll be 22 in March and I still actually call her "Kid!" LOL! She's kind enough to tolerate it! LOL!

  3. wow..those are super cute aprons!! I'm so jealous, because I can't use my sewing machine. LOL I hope your week settles down some.

  4. Awesome aprons! You are so talented! Love your frilly one!

  5. Gosh, those are cute aprons. When I was little, my mom had this 50's apron with big cabbage roses on it. It was so big on me, it fell to my feet and I'd play princess with it. Tell your little bro happy birthday!! It's nice that you guys are so close.

  6. Oh how beautiful! I love me some girly aprons!
