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 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:
