Happy Birthday to Me!

10 Apr

Then (a wee version of me)

 

Now (the full-sized version)

Last year I turned 30. That was hard for me. I was depressed for months and I never could put my finger on why that was. Something about being 30 I guess.

Tomorrow I am turning 31 and I couldn’t care less about how old I am going to be. Yes, I will no longer be 30, but ratherĀ  “in my thirties” and I’m fine with that. In fact, I’m SO fine with it, that I’m telling all of you how old I am AND I’m celebrating! For my birthday, Lizze and I decided that anything in our Etsy shop will ship for just 31 cents. Anything. Anywhere at all in the U.S. From a small coffee cozy, all the way up to a huge quilt. That sounds like a great idea to me!

The kids and I are going to hang out and it will be just like any other day except that I’ll get really awesome handmade cards with stick figures drawn on them that say “I love you mommy” – the absolute best gift I could receive. I have 3 little girls and they are going to attempt to bake me a birthday cakeĀ  (ssssssh!!! It’s supposed to be a surprise!).

Celebrate my birthday with me. Stop by the shop tomorrow, April 10th, and anything that your little heart desires will ship anywhere in the United States for 31 cents! Here’s a link to take you there: http://thewanderingstars.etsy.com

I’m looking forward to sharing my birthday with everyone. I hope you stop by and say hi!

Time to go shopping!

20 Sep

I whipped up these 3 market bags last night. I’m so happy with them, these fabrics are my favorite! I purchased the fabrics from ConnectingThreads.com and they are a part of the Canning Day collection. For anyone not familiar with this website, I would love to recommend it. Their fabrics are of superior quality without a quilt shop price tag. Not only that, but all of their fabrics are made right here in the USA (with the exception of batik’s, of course).

This one is called Plentiful Peaches

Plentiful Peaches in Aqua (and my lovely Pug, Bijou)

Cherries and Apricots

These turned out very nice. It makes me look forward to the weekly shopping trip when I know I get to take these beauties with me.

As with my other market bags they are $20 and available now in our etsy shop. I can make these in any prints you have in mind. Just let me know what you’d like.

Hope it’s been a wonderful, relaxing weekend. Happy Sunday!

America the Beautiful

5 Jul

I’m writing this hoping that the day after the 4th of July finds everyone well. The 4th can be a crazy day (and night). We had a fantastic Independence Day. The kids and I went to a great BBQ that had ALL the works. I’m not kidding. The spread was amazing. I just started Atkins though, so I couldn’t eat most of what was served. It all looked really delicious. Getting old and fat sucks.

The fireworks we had would have put nearly any other show to shame. These people spend thousands of money on fireworks. It was insane. The kids loved it and you could hear cheering and clapping from literally blocks away.

I know I’m a day late, but Happy 234th Birthday to the United States of America! Land of the free, home of the brave! America, F*** Yeah!
