My New Find

I went to buy some fabric this past week and one of the ladies there told me they had this book also if i wanted to get it turned me onto to this book and i just had to get it. What does that say about easily convinced i am of buying something? It contains tons of ideas for things to make with just a yard of fabric. It comes with the pattern for every idea in the book. I can't wait to get started!

Let's Talk Blinds

We moved into our house last April and still have not gotten any blinds installed at our house. We only have the temporary blinds and they look horrible. 100% of the reason we don't have blinds is because i really want plantation shutters. I have had my heart set on them but they cost a fortune so i've been dragging my feet on getting a quote. I finally got a quote on them the other day and i can do our house 4 times in faux wood plain blinds for the price of plantation shutters. This alone makes me want to go with plain but i still haven't made up my mind. It doesn't help that i am super indecisive either. The main reason i am hesitant is because i have one domed window and it would look ridiculous with square blinds in the window. Plantation shutters would be custom fit to the window so i wouldn't need to have drapes around that one window if i didn't want. Which of course, i don't. It couldn't be that easy could it?

New Look!

I hope you all like the new look! I changed all of my blogs to new backgrounds and headers. It is a lot easier than i would have thought and a lot more fun too!

Long Time No Talk!

I feel like i have been neglecting my personal blog because i have been so busy with my business one! I have been up to so much. After i started working on embroidery on my borrowed machine i was able to buy the software i needed to do much more. I have done a good bit of embroidered burp cloths and sewn a few things but just haven't had time to do everything i want. I have started doing hair bows which is also a lot of fun. I am lucky that so many people around me let me practice and buy the things i make!

I am still doing baking jobs but haven't put those on here because i didn't want to this to become a crossover business blog. I seem to have a job to do every weekend and many booked throughout the summer. It's been a fun and interesting ride so far. Hopefully i'll get a good bit better as i am able to practice more. There will be new classes coming up in the spring and my local cake decorating store. I'm really excited about this. I can't wait to expand my abilities!
