Daughtry Sanford and a Skully

That's all I got.

I've been dealing with back pain.  Lumbar xrays were taken today so hopefully that will shed some light.

I changed the blog last week.  I found this funky design I love even though she doesn't look a thing like me.

I love it. 

I hope you lovely ladies are enjoying life!!!

Day 347 Finished Painting

Day 344 2 more card designs

Awareness tote in progess

So I started on this yesterday.  I had just finished doing the embroidery on the outside pocket here.

Still waiting on handles LOL
Got some more time last night so the bag portion is finished.  I attached the special item tag and that "zippy pouch"  Ladies this thing gave me grief.  It's not as tidy on the inside as I would like it to be but it's a freebie so maybe the purchaser won't complain.  I hate hate putting zippers.  I think I may add a wallet to this package and a key fob.  Depends on how I feel later.  My leg is killing me because I overdid it yesterday

three customs

Day 343 Banners

I'm still working with theme #1 Here are banners. I also worked on a couple of different buttons.

Day 342 Working on some cards / logos

I started on these last night and worked on them WAY too late last night! I've got a few other ideas in mind.

Flowers and Awareness items

I made another Awareness Cover.  100% of the funds go to San Diego ~ Susan G. Komen for the Cure® charity.  I'll be adding simple totes too because I have a really cool "Courage, Love & Hope" Awareness ribbon to embroider but the covers are way too small to put it on.  I'm excited about this.  If they sell well I will also update on our $$ progress on my blog regularly so people can see it's no scam LOL

Added some flowers to Treatsforyoursweets.etsy.com

And embroidered a few more items.

Oh I also re-did the pink custom headband and shipped. That international shipping ain't no joke. I'm pleased with the outcome this time around.  I'm getting better at this embroidery business.

Futball and the Year 2000

Day 341 Diva & I

Diva decided she was Superdawg and tried to fly onto the bed. As you see this did not end so well for her eye and about gave me a heart attack! She is fine though. Actually this morning she was acting like her normal self again. Of course there is a lot of dye in this picture but she has bruising around her eye and an abrasion on her cornea.

After the vet's office we spent the rest of the evening cuddled together watching, "When the Levee's Broke" 1-2 & 3-4 and, "If God is Willing and Da Creek Don't Rise"

I have a gazillion sewing projects in the works. However our air conditioner at the apartment broke sometime Friday night. They are going to fix it hopefully by WEDNESDAY. It is hot! Too hot to sew. :)

This week I am giving the kids store a remake.  It looks so pathetic from complete neglect.  Retaking pics and all that mess.

Today - I've been really tired so not much done

Eric brought me this tee today and I LOVE it! I've decided to give someone the opportunity to choose the style and size!

This was a custom order that I did today...the pic is terrible but the skirt is way cute. I put pink stripes down both sides and made it bubble slightly and the NY is all glittery! its awesome!

I love this dress! I made it today to...

...and the very first thing I made today was a laptop bag for Sterling out of a pair of old jeans and a tee :)
