Confetti Eggs

Colorful confetti eggs.
I had bought confetti eggs for my kids before. And boy did they have fun cracking them on each other's head. I decided to make my own for them and collected 3 1/2 dozen eggs. Phew! Took a few months to get that amount.

Before & After...Abstract Dress

I cleaned out my closet over the weekend. Some spring cleaning in the winter. Why not, right?! Had piles for keeping, donation, and maybe keeping. So the maybe keeping pile turned into a project pile.

I decided to recycle some of the clothing pieces I had in the maybe keeping pile. The rest I placed in the donation pile. I wore this dress about 3 years ago...yes, 3 years ago.

Sister Sister

I've been in full sewing mode...oh yeah! Loving it! A friend of mine asked if I could sew some aprons for her daughters. One as a birthday gift and the other as a Christmas gift. Of course I could do that! She requested full aprons and gave me color preferences for each and the rest was left up to me to decide...yikes!

Soccer Season Over...

Sunday was the last game of the season for our soccer team Barcelona. We lost our last game but ended the season well. Even though we didn't make it to the finals. Oh well. There's always next season. So I'm left with a few bruises...

Not too bad!
New girls, new coach, new uniforms...overall, it was a great season! Great job Barcelona Ladies! Until next season...can't wait!

National Tie One On Day 2013

It's that time of year again! Thanksgiving is a day away. You know what that means??? Aprons!!! Yeah, it's National Tie One On Day! This year I only did two aprons. But of course, they went to two very special people.

I'm back into sewing and was looking forward to doing this again. Unfortunately, I didn't get around to doing it last year and I wasn't going to let it happen again this year. So with that being said, here are the apron beauties:

New Venture...

Dia de los Muertos apron. My first apron sold on Facebook!
Busy, busy busy...and more busy! I've taken the leap for...wait for it...wait for it...selling aprons on Etsy. It's been something I've been thinking about doing, but wasn't sure if I should or not. So I said, what the heck! Why not?!

Happy Teen Birthday Anyssa!

My very good friends daughter, Anyssa, hit the big "T" or "13"...yup, the Teens! It was a Candyland Theme. So you can imagine, it was candy galore at the party! I decided to make her a fun birthday apron, but keeping very fab & hip for a teen!

Went with a flowy mini apron, which could be used just for fun or for some fun in the kitchen! Some of the ballon prints say Happy Birthday on them. So it was perfect! Hope she liked it! 
Happy Birthday Anyssa!

False Sea Onion Update

Happy Couple!!!

So a few months ago, I blogged about a False Sea Onion. Of which I own two that surprisingly are still alive. Noticing that their stems were getting taller, I thought the roots might be needing some growing room.

Before & After...Angels T-Shirt

It's baseball season once again! Haven't been able to make it to an Angels ball game yet, but it's being planned...soon! So I had bought this Angels t-shirt at a thrift shop (love thrift shops). Obviously big for me but couldn't pass up not getting it. For $ have it!

Before & After...Cinco de Mayo!

I've had this bandanna that I bought at the Dollar Store about a year ago. Thought it would make a perfect apron sometime. Well, now is the time!

Juana Briones

My daughter is in Fourth grade and had to work on a Biography project. The project consisted of making a poster board with facts of the person. Then, each student had to dress up as their chosen person and do a 45 second speech in first person. It was called a Live Museum. Very cool!

San Francisco 49ers T-Shirt Mat

Ahh, such a great feeling blogging once again! I've missed it tremendously. Still getting back into the groove of things. So with that being said, I started a project a few months back and FINALLY finished it. Many hours, days, nights, weekends, and so and so forth...but it was so worth it!

Welcome Lynda!

Meet Lynda, my new sewing dress form.

Now that I'm back into sewing mode...I'm pacing myself again on sewing aprons. Joy! I've been wanting to buy a sewing dress form and FINALLY found one and got a great deal too! Thanks to Craigslist!!! 

So I have named her Lynda. After the friendly lady that sold me the mannequin. Seeing what the actual apron looks like on someone else is going to be a lot easier. Not that I mind modeling my aprons but for picture purposes, Lynda is going to come in handy! Enjoy the aprons Lynda!!!

Welcome Back BROTHER!

Welcome Back!

It's been such a long, long, long time since I've blogged! I mean really, really long time! I haven't sewn in months since I had my broken sewing machine collecting dust in the corner. I've missed sewing aprons amongst other stuff.

False Sea Onion Plant

So what is a False Sea Onion Plant? Well, it's a plant that looks like an onion but it really isn't an onion...huh??? Yeah, that was my reaction to this mysterious plant. A special friend of mine owns this unique plant and couldn't figure out what kind it was. After inspecting it and questioning why it looks like an onion but it doesn't smell like one, that made me want to google the plant. And here's a brief explanation of what I found on this mysterious plant:
