End Of The Year Apron '10

The year has come to an end...and to complete my last apron for the year, I decided to make this one extra special. I was inspired by reading the last clothing transformation from New Dress A Day by Marissa. For 365 days with $365 dollars to spend in a year, she bought $1 garments every day and transformed them into a completely new outfit. Amazing! I've been reading her blog for the past 9 months and when I read her last clothing transformation, I thought I do the same but with an apron...

Yellow There!

This Christmas has been an "Apron Season" in my household. This Yellow There! beauty was a gift for my moms' really good friend. My mom asked me if I could make, Rosy, an apron for Christmas in her favorite color: YELLOW. So off I went and managed to sew one more apron for holidays...

Toy Soldiers

I received my Holiday Apron from the apron swap hosted by Sue at Country Pleasures. This apron came from Shawnee from Shawnee's Tangled Tales. Such a beautiful apron! It came with tuck-ins but didn't get a chance to take a picture of them, but it was a snowflake ornament, mints, peppermint shower gel, and 2 chocolate spoon dips. Awe, so yummy!

10 Days Of Christmas

'Tis the season...and aprons are on my "gift giving" list for this year. And with that said, Adriana, asked me for "10" aprons to gift to her friends AND she would pay me for them! I was like "WOW"! Of course!!! I either sew aprons for myself or give them away, but this time I was actually getting compensated for "10" aprons...I was extremely excited.

The time has come for her to move on but she will be working within the school district. My kids are so sad that she's leaving.

Sweet Serendipity Cakes

Awhile back, a friend of mine took some baking classes and found out she loved baking. One word to describe her cakes...AMAZING! She started up a Facebook Fan Page called Sweet Serendipity Cakes. Check out her colorful cakes and cupcakes.

Sugar and Spice

A good friend of mine that I've known since are kids started school together is having a birthday this week. She found out about the National Tie One On aprons I made for Thanksgiving and told me that she wanted one. Well, since I had already chosen the three apron receivers, I thought I make her one as a birthday gift.

Oh my!!! I received my Holiday apron yesterday from my fellow swap partner, Margaret. Love it? Uh, yeah! Such cute Reindeer with Christmas trees and snowflakes all around. And two knitted pot holders were added as tuck-ins:
