Shag for a friend.

I did this for a very special friend of mine. It is eventually going to be a pillow. The white stitching is actually glow in the dark. She loves Shag's art work so I thought I would give her a pillow. I almost scrapped it but with the hubby's encouragement, I kept going.

Tattoo swappy goodness

So, I joined the tattoo swap on Craftster (one of my favorite places on Earth! If you haven't checked it out, you should. www.craftster.org) Here are the goodies that I made amyracinrose. I really hope she likes them. I had so much fun making everything.

First, an iron on shirt-pretty simple and really doesn't need an explanation.

Second, a Sublime Stitching tattoo pin up pillow. I need to take a better picture, but there is some beading on there and it says "cutie" in the heart. She loves "candy" colors so I did them in pinks and blues.
This last one is of resin coasters. The images are fabric and they are resined over. I was a little worried about how dark they turned out but I really like them. I'm thinking I might make a set for myself.

My Guy...

Nothing you can say can tear me away from my guy. That's right, my main man! The man of the hour. He's the bee's knees, the cat's meow. My hubby!

Most people know him as OMP (old man Pedersen) but under that grouchy exterior lies a heart of gold. I love being silly with him. He keeps me grounded. I think he's a pretty good guy that I plan on having in my life for a VERY long time!

My puppies are my life. They are my children. Lola is the smallest and she is the mom. Kato is the dad and he's the big one. Jujube is their baby. They bring me countless hours of love and entertainment.

Here they are at the beach, having fun digging and walking in the sun.

And doing what they do best. Lounging around.....

Totebags! Totebags! Totebags!

For some reason, I am always doing totebags and for some reason, I always ending up cussing half way through. Here are a few of my favorites.

Crafty Goodness

I'm not sure why I love her so much. She reminds me of the vintage women bud vases. I did her for a swap that I am in. I think I may have to make on for myself.

So how long is that?

Client: How long is the program?
me: 48 weeks
Client: So how long is 48 weeks
me: Why don't you tell me how long you think 48 weeks is
Client: ummm, I don't know....48?
me: Wow! Yep, exactly. The program is 48 weeks.

This is what I have to deal with. Now, don't get me wrong. I love my job(s). I love working in social services but really dude? C'mon, Seriously?
