I Finished Something!

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , on March 11 by jmommy08

Oh my goodness! I finished something last night! I finally got my planner done. It came out really nice, but I lost a 1/4″ somewhere, so I couldn’t add a nice edge around it. But it’s still pretty.

I consider it a prototype if you will.  I am planning on making more and putting them in my shop.  Maybe not calendars persay (since it’s March), journals, maybe.

Of course, it doesn’t fit in my purse. Oh well.

Don’t forget!  Green week is next week.  And after green week I’m going to start a photography challenge.  It’s the ABCs of your hometown.  I am hoping to get some people involved with this.  I am putting together a photography book for Baby J with the ABCs of her hometown, so I thought everyone could join in with me.  Let me know if your interested!

I think that term is straight out of the eighties. Oh well. The bummer of the day is that we won’t be able to do the 3 Day this year. Bummer! I can’t bring Baby J with me and since we’ll still be breastfeeding, I can’t leave her for three days. So my sister and I, and possibly our mother, will definitely be doing it next year. Which means we have a whole year to fundraise – we should definitely be able to do it.

I have pictures of some recent quilt squares on my cell phone (because I forgot to take pictures of them before I went to work and I mailed them out from work). I have to figure out the SD card and get all of the pictures off my cell phone and onto the computer.

Other than that, most of my crafting has been planning at this point. I am very much in the mood for spring and desperately want to make a spring quilt, but I keep telling myself I have to finish Baby J’s quilt first.  It kills me that I am only planning – but financially and time-wise I just have not had the means.  Okay, I’ll admit my entire life at the moment revolves around my five month old, but that’s allowable – they grow up WAY too fast!

Anyways, I found this tutorial while tootling around and I just LOVE it! I have some great ideas in my head that incorporate the basics of this tutorial and some freezer paper stencils. Of course, I have never put a zipper in in my life, but you have to start somewhere.

I came up with a great idea to make a calendar for myself this year and I have all of the pieces ready to go, but I haven’t sewn them together. It is my goal to do that tonight, unless my mother decides to come down this weekend. That will change my goal.

Well, off to work! Thanks for all the comments about Baby J and the site! Let me tell you, I actually have a “site idol” if you will…someday I would love for my blog to be like this.

Since photography is an art, I’m going to be hosting my own green week – inspired by the above mentioned blog – but I thought it would be more appropriate to host it the week of St. Patty’s Day.  So tune in then to see some green.  If you would like to join me in celebrating St. Patty’s Day through photography, let me know and I will link to you throughout the week too!
