A Look into Finals Week...

You are probably wondering where I've been. Or maybe not. I'd like to think so at least.
Well, I've been in the Pits of Hell, er, I mean in the midst of Finals Week. And, yes, it deserves capitalization because it has taken over my life.
I've been doing a lot of this:

Reading these:
(ok, technically I've already read them over the semester, but still... and these are only SOME of the books I had to read the past 12 weeks... SOME!)

As you can imagine, I've been TOTALLY missing this:
note: my refrain from using my beloved is monumental... takes some serious will power. I've almost caved, like, 8 times.
But I didn't.
That's the important thing.

I've grounded myself from this:
(and, happily, it's not as hard as I thought it would be)

I've been drinking WAAAAYYYY to much of this:

Mostly because I haven't been sleeping all that much in this:

And I'm almost ready to use the last of these:

Because on May 2nd I will be wearing this:
(and the matching robe of course)

And it will be AWESOME!
Maybe it will be SO awesome that I will completely forget about all the agony I've been through the past week... you know, kinda like childbirth...

A Plethora of Information

I have lots of things to share with everyone today. I have been slightly lacking in the take-pictures-of-everything-and-post-them-to-my-blog department.
My bad...
I got lots of superbly awesome fabric in the mail yesterday from Material Girl Shoppe and some others are Etsy finds: like that Heather Ross Dogs fabric in Blue.

My mom's beloved puppy Roxy is a wiener dog and I'm planning on fussy cutting all those cute little wiener dogs to make something super awesome for her...
I just don't know what yet.


My labels finally came!

So I put them on everything I had been waiting to do so before they were to be mailed out. I just love them so much. These are SUPER soft and have a slightly worn/vintage-y look to them. I grabbed them up from greenbeansnstrings on Etsy.

It's such a cool feeling to be able to attach these to things I've made with my own two hands.


I finished a crib/toddler quilt to send off (WAY ahead of schedule I might add= go me!)
Here's the back:
That's not really all of the updates that I had planned to share with everyone, but I have to get dinner started or we may never eat. And I'm hungry.
I will return tomorrow with new changes.
I promise.

Go be beautiful!

Busy Working, Lazy with Uploading Pictures :)

Here are some pretty little things I've been working on:

Aren't they so bright and fun to look at?

I'm just waiting on my labels to arrive so I can send these off to their new homes!

I will miss these little pretties placed here and there around my house to brighten the room. (Yes, I have been using them as decoration. Not really. Kinda.)

And these ruffly bibs are for my little cutiepie. I think I'm going to add some knee patches or something, it's a little too plain in the middle for my liking.
We'll see.
