For real? Has it been that long? I think the last part of summer just wiped me out! Swim lessons, swimming, beach trips, soccer and more...and now school! :) Well I guess it's all good because it forces me to get up early...although I still end up going to bed way late...lol. Anyways, I hope all is well with all of you! I am more than thrilled you are loving LANNE's goodies in the shoppe! She truly rules and is so talented. :) Also so glad you all are rockin' your blogs with the shabby blog packs! All I can say is WOW and TY for emailing me all your links to your sweet lookin' blogs! :) Awesome! Okay so get ready for a LONG post here with loads of pics...but first I have to show you the kiddies' first day of school pics....I think Josh was too excited to look at the camera for me and smile..Oh well! :)
Okay so my mom brought over a ton of vintage patterns! And after looking high and lo for cute patterns, I love these. :) Especially if my mom and I can think of some different and cute ways to trim these. :) But I love the vintage style of these patterns! And Chayce asked me to make her this little pony!
So I had to race over to Beth's new shoppe and just drool at all her fabrics! :) I picked several 1/4's to make the pony, several yards of HB's new line and Sandi's Gingerblossom corduroy! :) Chayce is going to get a few new outfits from these. :) I have to say too that ALL this fabric is VERY HIGH QUALITY! Seriously though, this is awesome fabric! What do ya think? I love it ALL! And when you see it online, of course it's amazing! BUT...when you see it in person...you become overwhelmed so badly because you just want all of it to sew, sew, sew projects...So I had to shut my sewing creative brain off just to figure out what to get first! :) Anyways, I can't wait for all the projects us girls will be doing again this fall/winter. :) FUN STUFF!!!! And then I have to take Chayce over there to pick out one of the new HB lines to make her quilt, pillows, bedding out of. :) I think they are all so pretty and when I'm done, we can paint Chayce's walls like soft lime green or something...I'm letting her pick all this out! :) Oh and isn't that apron too cute too? I think Beth has patterns for that and more. I know if you live near Sacramento area, you should drive over to her shoppe...she's going to have RADICAL classes...I mean she got me to quilt..I never quilted! LOL Amazing! But something you all will have to check out sometime. :)
Finally, it was SO MUCH FUN to be apart of this fabulous book again this year. :) I loved working with Katie and Tracy at Scrapbooks, Etc. :) And it was a blast doing the cover scrap layout for it too! :) I just wanted to humbly toot this out! :) It's awesome and loaded with fabulous tutorials on how to digi scrap!
So there's the long post! :) LOL I better get some other stuff finished and get one little guy ready for soccer. :) Hope you all are doing fabulous as usual!
