It was bound to happen...

I have these boxes, which reminds me of a song...


I love that song. But back to my boxes. I have these boxes of jewels and jems and resins and googlie eyed frogs and fun bits for my bows. I have 4 of these boxes and for almost 5 years, I haven't knocked one over yet... UNTIL TONIGHT!!



I was so close to sweep it up and chuck it all!! It was a headache to sort it all, but everything is back in its little box.

There's ribbons, and then...there's ribbons.

A funny thing happened on the way to the computer...

I sat for a second to check on Facebook and email, and the husband asks, "hey, toss me those ribbons next to your left elbow on the desk. I look down and see 2 ribbons, one pink, one grey. So I toss them over. Burst of laughter. Wrong ribbons. He meant his rack of ribbons for his Class A's (dress uniform). Oops. So there's ribbons, and then there's ribbons...

"I'm aDORKable"

When I decided to actually "blog", I asked a friend of mine, "what do I blog about?" Her reply... "blog about what inspires you." So that's what I've been doing. The exciting things. The frustrating things (work related, not kid related). I could whine on and on about the frustrating things, because there's always something to {wine} about!

So here's my lastest excitement... EMBROIDERY!! I'm having so much fun with my machine. If I had known how easy it was, I would have started when I bought it 8 months ago! The BEAST and I still have our battles to work out, but I hope she starts seeing things my way. I'm so in love that I'm even considering a name change to include expansion. (Probably not, but you never know!) I've got a pretty awesome stock of ribbon, but now it's time to stock shirts, onesies, thread, etc. Take a look at these two cuties that came off the machine yesterday...


Yes, I'm a DORK. Yes, embroidery excites me.

Laboring on Labor Day

My 7 year old said it best... "I thought Labor Day was the day you celebrate the work you do by not working." Just wait until you're a mom. Moms don't get days off. So I took the day off from bowmaking and did housework instead. Not a fun day...

Today's priority?? My workroom. It was a mess.

Here's the Before...


And some After!!


And now... I can THINK again! I should have showed you the carpets. I shampooed those too. It was pretty impressive. I hope you all had a great Labor Day Weekend!
