My Creations

Here's what I could get done before my piece of crap Sewing Genie jammed up.

Let me know what you think!

Sew cool!!!!

Hiya folks.

Well, I took a sick day off of work today. *cough cough* Okay, so I'm not really sick. But the bosses are on vacation and I figured it's better to take a sick day on a slow day than a busy one. So I'm home. Oh yeah, I also got a flat tire yesterday, so I'm stranded at home. I was kind of hoping I'd get to go shopping, but this way I'll force myself to do some crafts.

So I had an epiphany last night about my whole card-making shebang. I really wanted to do something different. Not that I wasn't happy with the more traditional cards I was making, but I really wanted to do something cool. So this morning I was on a mission. I pulled out the ole Sewing Genie from storage and went to town.

Here's my first creation:

I think I like the direction that this is going in. I'm going to try to bust out a whole bunch today to get the hang of it. It's been a while since I sewed anything! I'll post some more photos as I create more cards.

I've also been on a mission to work on my website. I completed a good amount last night and hope I can get some done today as well. I guess I'll see how deep I get into my card-making,

Well, I'm wasting precious craft time, so back to the sewing machine. Um, maybe I should shower first. Geez, I was so excited I didn't even change out of my pajamas! Anyway, talk to you guys later!

Pat, I'd like to solve the puzzle!

Alright, you can scold me. It’s been a really long time. It’s just been so busy at work lately that blogging hasn’t been as easy. I’ve been trying to be a better employee and actually do a good job on my work. But I think I’m just getting more work instead.

Haven’t been up to much in my social life, other than board games. Rob and I are undefeated Cranium and Taboo champions and we are hoping to soon take over Scattegories. Our Taboo championship is being challenged this Friday when Jenna and Kevin come over. They have a pretty good connection, so to be honest, I’m a little nervous. But Rob is the ultimate clue giver, so I hope I have nothing to worry about.

Speaking of games, I have decided that one day I will be on Wheel of Fortune. During the whole Kevin Jennings era, Rob and I got back into watching Jeopardy, and since it’s followed by Wheel, we just kinda fell into that. I always thought Wheel was the worst game, but regardless of that, I freaking rock at it! I can guess most puzzles with less than 20% of the letters up there. I think I freak Rob out. He’s always yelling at me, “You have to go on this show!!!” I’d feel like a tool, but nowadays people win over 20K on that least! I think it’s because I am an only child, and growing up I just did a lot of word puzzles and things. You should see how fast I can do a word search!

Along with being on Wheel of Fortune, I decided that my other lifelong dream is to be a greeting card designer. Not like Hallmark or anything, but like those adorable notecards you find at the Papery or Blue Tulip or other fine stationery stores. I can totally do that. So I’ve been spending my extra time, and extra money, putting together blank notecards. I should take some photos and post them. I have a big shipment coming in from Chatterbox today.

Alright, I got in a good amount of blog-time. Back to work for me. Later gators!!
