Show us your life today was favorite books...
I read a lot so It was a very hard to pick just a few.
First off when I was younger I was obsessed with,
The BabySitters Club
and Sweet Valley HighWhen the bookfair would come to school it was like Christmas. I would beg and plead and throw myself on the ground and declare that I would just DIE if I didn't get the books that I wanted! Needless to say when we cleaned out my storage unit of childhood memories there was a ton of boxes of nothing but books!
Now my favorites include,
Any and everything Nora Roberts
Any and everything James Patterson.. with a emphasis on the Women't Murder Club series
Jen Lanchaster--she is flipping hilarous
Twilight series.. I am guilty of loving them-don't judge
Cecilia Ahren- P.S. I Love you & Rosie Dunn
Francine Rivers Redeaming love--AMAZING!!
Allison Winn Scotch--Time of my Life
Next up I had our sewing class last night.. I think I have caught the sewing bug.
I am very thankful for JLO's friend Jamia. Starting off she was like well... how far along are you ladies? She then looked down at Jenni's machine--still the the Styrofoam that it came packaged in and laughed.. So, we started from the beginning!
After threading the bobbin (if i spelled it wrong-sorry) and then treading the needle we started with something simple. Burp Cloths.
This is Jenni McCarthy's sewing kit.. with NADA in it!
We then had to cut out our fabric.. i couldn't help but laugh out loud at how clueless JWOW and I were. She actually had to give us some instruction on how to measure & cute the fabric properly. Jenni from the block was getting a little over whelmed.
My finished product...
Here is what Jamia made...
You can buy stuff from her.. one of these days.. I am going to be a stay at home mom and make cute stuff like this..
Then after he studied my burp cloth he said.. when will you be good enough to sell these?
Today OA&L and I spent our lunch hour at Hobby Lobby. We both walked around with this star-crazed look on out face with glassy eyes. We both got it in to our heads that we might as well just call each other Martha 1 and Martha 2 cause we are THAT good of sewers now. We also developed the visions of grandure and decided we could make all these elaborate projects... So after walking around the aisles trying to decide what all we were going to make, we finally figured that we might as well make the same project since we could combine forces and make the decisions together! We decided to make taggies.. we heard they were easy, and hey we are martha one and martha two so anything is possible with us sewing machines..
30 bucks later we have a project, only problem?
We have all types of fabric with no tools to make it!
