I know, I know, my daughter is so stinking cute! Farbenmix patterns really suit her personality and Vida is no exception. the cuffs are marabo sewn on to elastic to make a removable cuff and the leggins are a pair of witch tights from walmart that I cut the bottom off and serged a lettuce edge around the bottom. The bows have a marabo and skull center with tiny crystals of the skulls eyes. now I need to start thinking about her Christmas outfit.

These were fun to make. I had the images printed at Walgreens and then cut them with a 1 inch circle punch. I used a sticker maker and made them stickers and glued magnets on the back. Then I coated it with an epoxy resin and le it cure. I want to use them to make bows and key chains but these will be extras to go on Hope's snap cap choker and I will also use these at frigde magnets.

My Husband was off today and was totally bored so we looked around the we for ideas and this is what we came up with. This old House has a really cool tute on how to make a water bottle rocket. I think the total cost today about 23 bucks and I had to sacrifice 2 2liter bottles of my diet Dr Pepper. Everyone in the apartment complex came out to watch and it shot up 40-60 feet in the air. The tutorial has you using a foot pump but we uses my husbands portable air compressor. Well here are the pics!

I am so glad that daddy was able to make it home in time to meet the kids getting off the bus. I just wish he could have been there in the morning when I cried like a baby, could have used some serious comfort!

I am sorry that I did not take step by step pitures of this but I was just trying it out and not sure what I was doing at first so this was kind of an expirment that really worked out well! I hope you get the idea here.
1. first check the wiring and make sure it is safe, this one was but you can get rewiring kits if not. I had my husband to do this.
2. drill holes in the base of each cup where you want the beads to go. I drilled 4 in each cup and 4 in the top cup. I also had my husband to do this, power tools scare me! I think you can see where he drilled here.
5. have someone who knows how to mess with electricity to hang your new chandelier and put in your energy saving light bulbs and there you go! A chandelier fit for a little princess!

I have been so sick since Valentines Day with pneumonia so the house is a mess and I am so behind on sewing but I was able to look at some new stuff to make (like I needed more).
Heather Bailey has some seriously cute patterns. I have just ordered the Happy Stacker and the fresh picked pincushions. I typically do not order patterns that are not instant download, I like instant gratification when it comes to patterns. I like it filed neatly away in my computer, but I just couldn't resist, I mean how cute are these! You can purchase the patterns Here" but I have been told it is not for the faint of heart.

This is the layered tulle twirl skirt from Dainty Designs that I purchased from YCMT . It went together fairly easy till I got to the gathering. Next time I will gather the 3 layers separately instead of together. I also added a ruffle to the peekaboo layer instead of the binding like the pattern called for.
