Crafts.. crafts and some more stuff

Sewing sort of fell off the map of creativity quickly so I am making a second attempt to revive my interest. Rachel Denbow is teaching a beginners class to sewing and I am all over it.

Class description: Home Ec is not just for teenagers anymore, it's for everyone, everywhere!! Leigh-Ann, Courtney and myself have created this online sewing class for beginners and those who want to develop and polish their sewing skills!
We've planned 3 Guides, 26 step-by-step Projects with at least 1 new Sewing Technique in each, 3 Live Chats and a tips post on How to Invent & Adapt projects of your own!

I am super excited and can’t wait to pull out that machine, again.

I did some work on my front porch and now I found the most perfect do it yourself chandelier project.

Found in Sunset magazine, my favorite parts of this project are the mason jars and thrifted baskets. This will look perfect hanging from our front porch. My gut is telling me to paint it white however. And to look for colored gems.

I am super excited to attend the LA Renegade craft fair. I am sort of waiting to fall in love with EVERYTHING!!! Plus I like being around like minded crafty people and I think that is what I will find. Inspiration all along the way.

Summer time is so full of new expierences and fun....

Misc.. random... thoughts...

Nothing Compares – Next song on my Karaoke list….

James and I start Baby Boogie tomorrow. I am not quite sure what to expect with this community class. Maybe he will learn some new dance moves, the sprinkler that he has picked up from his dad and the head bob that he has perfected since he was 8mths old is getting old.

Country music bums me out sometimes. I mean talk about rejection…. Over and over and over again. It can get to you.

Do I really want to listen to a song titled Hillbilly Bone? changing channel….

The kids want to go to Hometown Buffet tonight. I want to run… away…. from Hometown Buffet. I screwed myself by saying.. “anywhere we have coupons for” and they found that one. Being thrifty will ruin my digestive track for a few days.

What is my current obsession?
Answer: celebrity bs, especially Lindsay Lohan drama… I am addicted to that patch of crazy.

What is the first thing I am going to do tomorrow morning?
Answer: When baby James wakes up I will bring him into each of the kids bedrooms so he can wake them up with “good mownin sissy, good mownin bruda”. They love it! So do I.

What am I looking forward to the most this weekend?
Answer: Spending sometime planning out the re-do of the patio. Figuring out how to do it FREE!!

It’s gray outside but I feel sunny inside. It has me confused.
