Tweet, Tweet

The snow has brought lots of cute birdies around!  Thought I'd share one.

Speaking of birdie's check out my twitter page here
Follow me, I haven't tweeted much just about giveaways that's about to change thou..

My Cutie fry

We had a quiet Valentine's day! Nothing special just spent time together.
We gave Maddie a Mermaid barbie & a Mr. Potato Head
she had more fun unwrapping than anything. We also got her a Nemo card which she loved.
She is all about Nemo. Or Mooooo as she calls it. We have to put it on almost everyday. Now she doesn't pay attention to it just wants it on in the background.

Pop Daisy

Here's a preview of my curtains/blind redo project.  I had faded little sage green fabric blinds from JcPenney they didn't go with my new bedspread. Instead of buying new curtains I figured I'd thrifty and cover my exhisting ones with some fun fabric. I love this fabric. It's called Pop Garden by Heather Bailey
So bright & cheery.
Anyway back to my project., apparently I had wishful thinking on this project. The blinds are so wide it's hard to sew in my machine. I ended up moving the sew machine to the floor and Tom pressed on the pedal while I fed the blind thru the machine. Before Tom saved me I was pushing on the pedal with my foot & knee while lying on the floor using both hands to feed the blind thru.
So far I have one blind done, one more to go...

Keepin Busy

Blizzard conditions gave me time to catch up on projects, and some reading.
I finished a couple pillows for the Etsy shop, I love the yellow & green together. I'd keep it for sure but it really doesn't match anything. The other fabric in the first picture is for my curtain redo project for our bedroom. I'll have to post picture of that project. I am so bad about starting 3 million different projects at the same time. And I worry myself to death about finishing them.
On a Photography note, I have been working on redoing my price list and I was contacted for 2 upcoming weddings. I am looking forward to spring & summer to get back into building my business.

Blizzard 2010 Part 2

Our co-pilot ~ Maddie Moviestar Henderson
Tired of snow pictures yet!
We had to take a ride to get out of the house, drifters were extremely bad. 
But Maddie had a ball in Daddy's big truck and squealed, hollered
Yay! when we hit a chuncks of snow & ice.

Let it Snow, Let it Snow, Let it Snow, NOT !!!!

This was taken out of our front door, wish I had taken a picture before Tom dug our cars out.
View of the side of house and our neighbors house
The orange rods are to help find our driveway.. lol  So glad we did that.

Not digging the snow, but did enjoy a quiet day. I did a little cleaning, tried to make Valentines with Maddie, baked cookies, made 2 pillows for my shop, organized a closet, got a little crazy with my new label maker,caught up on all of my laundry and snuggled with Maddie and watched Nemo for the 500th time!!
