Pretty much I'm a huge fan of Lil Blue Boo. Why? Because her ridiculously adorable patterns have given me a great excuse to upcycle my multitudes of unused/too big/ too small t-shirts into funky clothes for the kids.
Actual sewing/prep time is hard to calculate. I'm completely engrossed in the Olympics lately and my sewing is a little less focused because of it. Are you guys glued to this? I get so invested in all the stories of the athletes, and then I yell at the TV for them when it's their turn. I'm sure they can feel my support through the TV. I know what you're thinking. Of course they can.
Yes, I'm kind of a dork that way. This is why whenever I'm watching sports of any kind on TV and I start talking to the tube, Little Miss takes notice and starts shouting, "Go baby GO!" Can you tell that we watch just a *little* bit of football in our house, and maybe Mommy gets just a *teensy bit* involved in the games? I'm not apologizing for it. I'm just saying.
So there were a few things on the agenda for this weekend:
- Make something. Anything.
- Clean up and re-organize the crafty space.
The good news? Mr. Skooks has graciously agreed to build me some shelves to go over my sewing desk so that I can have my creative things a little more accessible and organized. I'll keep you updated on the progress . . .
P.S. Much love to whomever it was who first "Stumbled" my Recycled Paper Flower Gift Bow Tutorial. Because of you that post went kinda viral. And because of you I truly discovered how cool StumbleUpon actually is.
