Fussy Pants

So this is my night. Kids were driving me crazy, wouldn't settle down for bedtime. Beck is fussy--and I don't know why, and Kizzy is being blatantly disobedient only when I'm holding or nursing Beck because she knows I won't do anything about it.

So when I finished feeding him, I laid him down--and Kizzy ran. Then I threatened the kids with no Halloween and it went something like:

"You girls are going to be so sad when all of your friends are out trick or treating, getting candy and you guys are at home because you wouldn't go to bed"

They ran--seriously--ran and leaped into their beds and haven't made a peep since.

Man I wish I had a good threat like that for every night.

So this is my reward--nothing like Blue Bunny Chocolate Bunny Tracks while balancing a newborn and attempting to blog.

p.s. I'll probably be neglecting this blog until after Christmas because I'm loaded with Photo editing to do. I'll be around every once in a while to come up for air

So many fabrics

Ok, I know there are a crapload of seamstresses out there. I'm currently trying to find fabric that involves the colors red, pink or green. Here are a few of what I have found:

I'm trying to make curtain sort of things that cover the pantry in my kitchen. So my questions are:

1. What online fabric stores do you recommend? Or local (Mesa, AZ) if you have any

2. Have you seen any fabrics in this color combo that you like? Send me the link.

I have GOT to make a decision. And unfortunately some of the fabrics I want, happen to be the fabrics everyone else wants, so they are out of stock. So my luck.

72 Degrees

What do you do when you live in Arizona and you wake up in the morning and your thermostat in the house registers 72 degrees? Well you do this of course:

You get on a hoodie and beanie and ask for Hot Chocolate. At one point she also had on a scarf.

Pumpkins I can do

In Arizona it's usually pointless to carve a pumpkin because it's so hot, it gets all moldy and rotten in about 2 days. But check these out---these I can do. I'm not even that crafty, and I think I can do these. They spray painted them and then scratched off the paint. Or they used painters tape and then spray painted them. I think I'm going to try it. Everyone save their 50% off coupons for Michaels and give them to me. We can make a day of it.

This is where I found them:

Pumpkin Stuff

I found that link by going to this LINK.

That's Right . . . I said it

Celebrities are annoying. I just watched this video--and I'm so annoyed. Why do people have celebrities do things like this? Really???? why would anyone think---I wasn't going to vote, but now I will because I watched a video online where Leonardo DiCaprio and some other random celebrities talked to me about it.


And you can tell which way they all lean by what they say the issues are.


Really? Really? Why would I listen to someone who plays pretend for a living? I'm sure they are so understanding of the economic crisis caused by idiots who lent money to people who couldn't afford things they shouldn't have bought.

So if you want to be annoyed watch it----or don't

Sub-question: Who is the target market? We have Rainman, dude from Titanic, Monica from Friends and Kevin Bacon from Footloose. Really? Are they talking to my generation--because I'm pretty sure that a) we are registered to vote b) anyone younger than us really doesn't know who these people are.

So what do you all have to say??? Open invitation---bring it on.

Dear Teachers

Um, no secret that I'm a MAC lover.

How freakin' cool is this?

You can take field trips to the MAC store. My girls would love one.

P.S. I was reading in Reader's Digest--and the article was "10 things your computer guy wish you knew". One of the 10 things was---Buy a MAC, so then you will see less of me.

I'm just sayin . .

My Sweet

I've slowly been getting to the decorating part of my house. I have these glass containers I use for Holidays or entertaining, and instead of putting them in a cupboard, I decided to put them up on top of my cupboards and put stuff in them. So when I need them, I just empty them out and use them. My kitchen is white walls with white cupboards, so I am putting punches of color here and there. I just finished two of these pictured, the green gum and the pink and white candy sticks. So I thought I'd take a picture. I have other candy I need to put in a bigger jar, but I haven't done it. When I'm done I'll post it. And I'm going to count it as my OPAM (One project a month---via Tara Whitney). So I'll feel like I accomplished something. I love the way they look.
