Wordless Wednesday - When hide and seek goes all wrong

Thursday, November 12, 2009

Ahhh I am so excited

I had ordered these cuts of fabric on the 6th and I just couldn't wait for them to arrive.  Scheduled delivery was today the 12th.  I kept checking the FedEx status like a crazy person for the entire day.  Of course they decided to deliver when I went to pick up Christopher.  At least that is what the updated status said.  The trip to and from the school takes me less than 5 minutes in the truck.  Come on now Mr FedEx.
The status said delivered to the front door.  WHAT!  Well nothing was there.  It must be a new delivery person because the regular guy knows me.  So instead of calling up the company I ordered from to have them take care of things I did it myself and filed the claim.
I was so crushed.  I wanted my fabric.  Then a few hours later my doorbell rang.  There is a guy standing out front with my package.  I could have hugged him.  So here they are.  My lovelies!  The picture of the 3 pieces is one of an earlier order.  I cannot wait to create!
And just check out the "TIMELESS TREASURES  TOSSED FAIRY PRINCESSES YELLOW".  Yes that's the print with the princesses including a little princess of color tossed in there.  I didn't even know what I was going to make with it but when I saw it I knew I had to get it.

Trouble with the Princess and her beautiful custom lollipop goodies

Pink Custom Lollipop Earrings & Matching Clippies

made by the lovely Gail of Guurrrl Designs

Big Chris likes to joke about Alyssa's temper but it's really not funny. I have really tried to teach my kids to control themselves especially when they are having playtime with other kids.

You all know Alyssa's has a bit of an attitude. She doesn't take any mess. Well yesterday, daddy took her to a friend's house at a birthday party. She usually goes to play with her little friend about once every 2 weeks.

The little girl just turned 2 and is going through the "mine" stage. The last time she went to play with her Alyssa left her house crying because the little girl would grab every toy and say mine, mine, mine.

Well apparently Alyssa had had enough and you see her in her pretty custom candy lollipop earrings and clippies above? Well her little friend grabbed it and pulled it out her hair. Well no one touches her lovely treats and Alyssa bit her. She loves her big girl candy wear so much.

That was when Chris grabbed her. Party was over and it was time to come home.

Some Treats for your Sweets & SexyGirl Handmade items

Most of these items have already been sold with the exception of a few. Some of them were part of my giveaways. If there is something that you see and would like me to make for you please contact me to make sure the fabric is still available.

I decided to post a few of my store items in one place and refer people here from my Etsy stores. It's easier to view them on one screen rather than having to click through umpteen pages. Also some of these were custom made and not sold online.

Thanks, Enjoy!

Keeping busy and stuff

I have been so occupied with everything else that I have been unable to update my blog as often as I would like but I am really going to try to make a super hard effort.  I know I said that before
Weeks ago I joined the 365 Day Challenge.  I had been toying with the idea for a short while before I actually decided to give it a go.  Just visiting the site daily got me motivated.  Part of me was afraid I would start and fail.  I hate to fail but I pushed my fears aside.
Here is the information ABOUT THE CHALLENGE:

Guurrrl is challenging herself as well as others to create something new every day for the next 365 days. Please use whatever creative talents you have whether it is cooking, sewing, felting, sculpting, photography, scrap-booking, writing, painting, sketching, beading .....the sky is the limit!

I continue to be amazed at what we are all capable of.  SO much talent is around us. 
Here are the current participants:
OnlyOllie has recently decided to open her own Etsy shop offering an assortment of homemade bread that will be made the same day and shipped to you via Priority.  I cannot wait until she decides to offer her Rosemary and Olive Oil bread!  I envy her baking & cooking abilities.  I no longer take time to cook and seeing her baking creations only made me feel both worthless and hungry at the same time :-)
Penelope Anne, designer and owner of CandyStickLane Boutique & TheJumpOff, a recycled clothing shop, practically does everything, knitting, sewing, drawing, you name it!
Gail, designer and owner of Guurrrl Designs does wonders with polymer clay.  She also crochets, sews, makes jewelry,  oh yes and recently made candied apples :-)
And myself, Atasha, the crafty mama, designer and owner of Treatsforyoursweets and the newly opened Sexygirl.  I am a disorganized mess.  I laugh at myself sometimes because I am unable to just stick with one thing.  I have so many half done projects it's a shame.  Most nights when it's time for me to work on something, I spend 10 minutes and upwards looking for stuff.  We won't talk about the room where I throw my purchased fabric or the boxes of containers of fabric in the garage.  It's awful.  I think I should start gathering my receipts and things of that nature right now because they are thrown in bags all over the place.  And you know the sad thing?  I actually have a filing cabinet for this.  It's in the garage.  Fine place for it to be.  I need some direction.
Anyway, I am a bit pleased with my accomplishments for the past month or so.  I have stuck with it but a year is such a long time.  I wonder if I can make it :-)
