Hump Day

So I really got nothing to put in here so let me scan my brain and just blurt out what comes to mind....

I am really excited about this craft show we are going to be in!! I enjoy making crafts and sewing so on my mind I have this idea of a Dallas Cowboys Apron but not just an ordinary Apron I like to make designer aprons. So I am just grasping at ideas but I am thinking, "How can I make Dallas Cowboy Fabric look prissy?" I am thinking polka dots, lace, and was thinking a soft pink but who knows.

My Baby Boys (well they aren't babies anymore but they are to me) 12 yrs old and 9 yrs old are playing football!!! YEAH!!!!

Thinking about my Halloween Costume for 2009

Today I was sitting here and thinking What will our Halloween Costume be this year? Last year we were invited to a Big Halloween Bash given by the Lopez family in the town I live in. It's an Adults Only Halloween Party and they have music, games, and prizes. We attended last year for the first time and we had alot of fun. I Love Tim Burton he is our family favorite director...Edward Scissorhands, 1989's Batman, The Corpse Bride, and Coraline just to name a few. So picking out our costume was easy and had to get really creative. I recycled a Bridesmaid dress that I had sitting in my closet and painted our faces to resemble that of the characters in the movie. Everyone got a kick out of our Costumes and some didn't know what we were. We left early but was told that we would've won most scariest costume and dinner for two at Macaroni Grill ha!!! And the winners last year were a couple that went as Adam and Eve, those were two very creative costumes and funny!!! I wish I would've gotten a picture of them! So, I am biting my bottom lip and thinking what can I do for this year? ugh!!! I want something Unique and creative. hmmmm.....Stay tuned for October to see with what I come up with!! I know it's still a ways away but I need to prepare for it now or atleast have an idea!! If you have an idea share it PleaSE!!!!! :) Have a Happy Hump Day!!!

He did what?!

Well, my husband suprised me with a Brand new Singer sewing machine. OMG!!! I love it!! Oh wait a minute this means I have to give up my old faithful, break your back heavy sewing machine? :( Ok. So I will do it only because I think it's time to upgrade. I've had ol' faithful since I taught myself how to sew 9 years ago. I didn't want to invest in a new one cause I didn't know if I'd like it. So we are moving forward with the sewing projects and as soon as I think I've made lead way someone else orders an apron. ha!! It's all good. I enjoy sewing so it's not a problem for me.

My Roots

My Roots

Was looking for a pic in my files and found these pics, I had taken last year for Christmas. They made me laugh and had to share.

This is my Mom and Dad "My Roots" I love them to death. Very much Old Skool, God fearing, hard working, buena gente.

My Mom reminds me of a rose with thorns. Don't let her Beauty and 5ft petite frame mistake you she is feisty!

My Dad reminds me of an old antique car; he hasn't changed his hairstyle, style of clothing, style of shoes ever since I can remember. A 100% cotton collared shirt, a pair of jeans my Mom has to hem, and his flip flops.

Let me tell you my Dad HATES taking pictures but my Mom was adament on taking these pics (she gets in her mood) so here's a collage to them. Enjoy.

First take of the day, my Dad comes out of the shower sporting this OLD hairstyle, I guess he wore as a teenager. He use to tell me if you don't pass your grades I am going to show up to your school with this hairstyle. Thank God I never did fail. ha!! My Mom didn't even realize it until she saw me laughing hysterically. She tells him, "You better go fix your hair!" So he heads back to the Bathroom.......

Second take, comes out of the bathroom again. My Mom couldn't help it this time but laugh. I was tearing up with laughter. He sported a Waldo haircut that he does every now and then when he's in a good mood and wants to make us laugh. My Mom tells him ok hurry up and go brush your hair. My Dad heads back into the Bathroom......

Take Three; Chihuahas!! Open your eyes!!

Take four; Again?!

Take 5; Boy is he in trouble!! ha!!!

Snapped them!!! ha!! My Mom didn't want his flip flops to come out in the pic. I said to her why not? that is my Dad, a part of My Roots.

I wanted to dedicate today's blog to my Wonderful experience of being able to go see NKOTB in Concert in San Antonio, TX!! A band that when I was in 6th grade was totally in love with and had posters and bedding in my bedroom!! ha!! On my school folders I had written Angela Loves Joey, created dance routines to most of their music, hated every girl in their videos. I wore a side pony tail with my skirt and tights underneath with a Big Joey New Kids on the Block button on it. Bought every cassette they ever made and adored my Sam and Libby shoes. Oh, Man those were the good ol days. Fast Forward to today, I am a mother and in my 30's and I am called "Old Fashion" by my boys but at that concert I was a kid again and suddenly I was in fashion as I looked around me in that center to see that all these ladies were about my age and they came to see the same band. I couldn't help but think that most of these ladies are probably Moms now too, I think I even shed a tear that night. ha!! I got to experience it with my Best and grade school friends. It was definately a highlight of my life and something that I will never forget. Some people might say I'm crazy but who cares I am what I am and do as I please. We acted like 11 and 12 year olds again that night. Screamin and Hollering and singing to every song like we had never forgotten the lyrics and danced. So worth every minute of it!

Pillowcase dresses not only for little girls

After my niece saw some of the little pillowcase dresses I was making, she immediately wanted one and wanted it to look retro. So, we hit the fabric store and found some fabric and came back home and sewed away. Look at how it came out!! It's soooo darn cute!!! We also made a broach out of matching pink polka dot fabric. Let us prove to you that pillowcases are not only for little girls.

It's a punk baby boy! Diaper cake

Baby Halen Rocks!!! Ha!! Pic posted on 8-04-09

My good friend Brandy had her baby on Wed. July 29th of 2009. Halen Cocek weighed a whopping 9lbs. 1oz. So I will be going over to meet the little guy today. I wanted to make Brandy something special for her and her bundle of joy. So, I decided to buy her a package of diapers and well I found some cute punky shoes and baby hoodies at Spencers. I then bought me some matching ribbon and Abracadabra a Diaper cake was made. :) Well, atleast my version of a Diaper cake. I didn't use glue so everything was hard to stay still but I managed to make it work. I hope she likes it.
