I survived the first week of back to school. My 6th grader did well at junior high. I dropped him at the door & said have a good day, also known as, throwing him into the shark tank and wishing him luck. He made it out alive and actually is enjoying the changing of classes & his teachers. I expect the honeymoon to end by this Friday when the homework gets handed out!
My 3rd grader is doing well and is in Upper Elementary, that's the big kids side of the building! This is the year they start taking tests & the MEAP & all that fun stuff.
Oh gee, is it June yet! I'm still mourning the end of summer. It went to fast and I think it's my fault...... I had too much fun!
Well, reality is here and I best embrace it. I have 2 shows coming up, both of which I am helping organize and get crafters for. The first one is in three weeks..... the sound of that makes my queazy!
So instead of laying down until the queasiness subsides, I have started sewing my brains out in all my spare time. Which, if I manage it well and stop flipping the TV outside of my sweat shop, I could get a lot more done.
In pics, this is what I have been doing.....the past few weeks.
I found a vintage patterns and wood spools of thread at different antique shops over the summer!
Lots of x-large make - up bags! My friends daughter, Libby is using hers for her Pointe Shoes!
Pillowcases with Personality! I love making these. Great Christmas present idea!!!!
Medium Zip Pouches..... these are used as pencil pouches, coupon holder, wallet, reward cards, & personal items for girls in junior high (just sayin')!
40 double bows w/ rubberband! For my niece's cheerleading team in Dearborn! I taught myself how to make these, thanks to google & some tutorials! I made them all within a 24 hour period!
Commonground: a girls night with a God focus! CG girls are taking it from the pews to the pavement! This is a great conversation piece!
