Still here....

Honestly, I have been avoiding my computer for the last few weeks. I have been sick and have been going straight to bed with Colin....so not like me. Anyway, I went to bed early tonight and got up to finish my sister's birthday gift. I decided to make her something and hopefully she will like it. I tried to pick fabrics that were different but I'm not sure how I feel about it. I switched the lining and the outside at the last minute. Hopefully she likes it, if not, I'll make her a new one.

So the little time that I have been online, I have been blog hoping. There are so many neat things available that I really feel like I learn something new everyday. Like this post. I ran out and bought this lipstick right away. I followed the directions and sure enough it works...I love it!

Or how cool is this website?

Check it out here. I can guarantee that everyone will be getting handmade gifts this holiday season and this website has given me a ton of crafty ideas and short cuts. I love that!

What do you think of this?

I am planning on making this with straps and in brown for Matt's Christmas Party. I love the idea of making something that will actually fit me and my unique proportions. It's a complete bonus that this is freaking Matt out and he's worried that I won't be able to make it work. Yee of little faith! And besides, I have two back up dresses that I could wear if it doesn't work and the material only set me back $18. Sweet.

Okay, I am going to check the message boards to see what I have been missing. Check ya later!

Hey!
I saw you checked out my blog. Sorry you are feeling under the weather. I am from a suburb of Reading. I saw you teach at Bonnie's! I own a scrapbook retreat house in the Hamburg area and she actually came to my open house. And then I saw under places on your blog that you have Scrap Room Kit Club. I am also on that board.
I've had several groups from York come to my retreat house!
