Weekend Fails and Fun

When I lived in the States I had a fabulous job at a Flower Shop I made pretty good money and I worked crazy hours during holidays but I loved my job. It of course helped that I had great people that I worked with that I still talk to today. Thank you facebook.
The motto of the designer area was "We are messy but good"! We also had the Motto "if you can't glue it don't do it" but that is a whole other story. Anyway it has stuck with me till today. I am a total slob when it comes to being creative. How do you be neat and creative? Is it possible to make something awesome without being wrapped up in glue strings? Can it me done? Do you not find sequins and glitter in your underwear and bra at night when you take off your clothes? Are you weird?
I have so many things started that I can't finish because of one little thing.
The doily lamp:....Doilies are missing I have them coming from 3 different sources.
My shopper bags for Christmas and Birthday: I have everything ready for just waiting for the interfacing.... should be here any day now.
Halloween cookies....: just waiting for the dough to get cold enough. I tried it yesterday and it was so soft I went ballistic and started stabbing it. Yay for pregnancy hormones!!!
Washcloth everything but it looks like a mutant gotta start over.
2 wreathes.....: that are awesome but don't know what to do with them yet. That's ok I'll just leave them in the middle of the living room.

Finish my mom's coat that needs altered. All it needs is the buttons that I already bought and left lying around.
Lipgloss ingredients.......gotta pick a date to do that.

So I have little nests laying around that are driving my Husband nuts and making me feel guilty. I will make a list of when to start. I am great at making lists and then losing them.
When I die I will probably get lost going to Heaven......
As for the fun.

I had a Twilight Night at my house where we middle- aged hags  watched all three movies drank bloody Marys mine were virgin ate junk food and slobbered all over ourselves. 
And yes I fell asleep and had to get up and use the bathroom 15 times but still finished all three.

Room of Doom

Do you have a room in your house that is the junk room? The one room or in some really neat people's houses it might just be a drawer but it is the place that all your crap goes to die.
You don't know where to put it and you are too much of a hoarder to throw it away so you put it in the room of doom. Well in my House it was the craft/trash/sewing/basement.
I would clean up the kitchen and like a little rat I would drag my crap downstairs and just put it somewhere because hey as long as I can't see it it must not be a problem.
When we found out we were having another Baby we had to rethink our living situation and decided to put the office in the Basement. WHAT!!!! But then I don't know what to do with my hoarder room.

There was only one thing to do.......clean it.
Yeah so  I am the Empress of Procrastinate Kingdom so that was not the first thing on my list but luckily the nesting instinct kicked in and I got the energy to do it.
It looks so good now and it is ready to get the computers,printers, and all the other officy stuff down there. I will show you pictures of before and after but be strong and for goodness sakes keep your judgy opinions to your dang self or I will go through your drawers and make fun of your hoarderself.


Ok now that you are sick to your stomach....

It is not the coziest room in the house but that's ok with me as long as it is clean and I know where all my stuff is that I didn't throw away. I had to fight for some of that stuff to not get thrown away with the hazmat team. I mean seriously who throws away scraps of fabric? Or real leather gloves bought at the flea market that smells like my grandmother? ( who has been terrorizing heaven since 1987) Nobody that's who.
So now that it is ready to receive the upstairs furniture I will go out and buy a crib. Soon.....I promise.

Oh...and yes that is a New Moon poster hanging on the wall.

Berry Bows

The other night was awake again like I usually am since I have been pregnant and I found a really cute tutorial at Ruffles & Stuff. I decided to make them for Christmas Presents and today I felt like making them.
I used the same measurements that were shown on this fabulous blog I can show you what I did but if you are looking for a great tutorial then go here. Ruffles & Stuff. There now nobody can say I don't give credit where credit is due.
I cut a strip a long piece of felt and cut a small v in one side and slid the other side halfway through.

cut a little strip and glue it around the middle and voila you have a cute little bow.
Embellish it with beads,sequins or little fabric strawberries like I did. You can glue them on little clips that you cover in ribbon first or you can slide a bobby pin through it.
I will making quite a few of these with different fabric and beads.
