My Mom decides her gift!

My Mom calls me up the other day and say " I want a tote bag it has to be neutral color and small and have at least 3 velcro closures on it. " I said ok , but can you please help me out with the color? She says " oh it doesn't matter just nothing to wild and how much are they?" I said Mom you don't have to pay me. Then she gets all upset and says yes I do- so I said I will make you one for Mother's Day. Well, she agrees with that and off I go to fabric store. Now I leave over 3000 miles away from dear old Mom so I am clueless what to buy. So I played it safe and got this very sweet fabric and made this tote. One thing I know I can count on with my Mom is her brutal honesty. If she doen't like it she will tell me!!! Wish me luck!!!

Mother's Day Gifts

I think this week I need start looking for a Mother's Day gift. She is 75 years old and lives in sunny Southern California. I am going to start looking at Etsy shops and post my findings here on my blog. I have always had trouble finding just the right thing because she lives in a very small home and really is not into THINGS!!! But I will give it a go!

Mommy what do you want for Mother's Day?

You are so wonderful- what would you like for Mother's Day?
We took this picture while at the Wild Animal Park in San Diego. Such a wonderful place for these gentle creatures.

Got to have it!!!

This purse turned out so pretty - I might just keep it for myself. But then again I say that alot and I am still carrying the same purse I made myself out of scraps last fall. But this summer I just "got to have"one of my own beautiful handbags!!!

Pink girl camouflage messenger bag

After much trial and error I was able to finish this bag today. It is not a difficult bag to make but I was constantly being interupted by other things and people. Although I normally can multi task laundry, dishes, taking dog out and sewing, today was just not my day to keep my thoughts focused. But I did finish it and wanted to add it to my shop. Thanks Mom for the fabric!!!!

Can't get into the crafty mood

Today with all the news about the shootings at Virginia Tech. I think I will just enjoy the sunny day and reflect on the balancing act of living life here in the U.S.

What its the 13th!!!

OH dear!!! who cares?? not me!!!

Wild baby wild!!!

Is this not the wildest fabric- I made a large catch all clutch for my etsy shop, because I thought as a purse or tote it would be just "to intense"!!! But one thing I have learned since I started selling is that alot of women like that "wild look" so we will see.!!!!!

My family are zoo junkies. We have been to so many zoo's. We love animals- so I am sure there will be more pic's to come on this blog!

My camera is crap!!!

Well, all things came to a halt yesterday when my camera died!!! Yes, only two years old and othr $200.00!!! I was thinking my husband would have a fit.. but he was very good about it and we actually went out and purchased another one last night. We went the cheaper version since hey it could break in two years or two months. All is well now so I have no more excuses not to get back to the machine and sew sew sew!!!

Here is a pic of my little Ginger girl keeping me company while I sew!!!
