My machine died....

I have no clue what is wrong with my sewing machine.... The top thread is getting caught underneath where the bobbin holder is... I just don't get it! So, creating new items is on hiatus right now... I do have an eye pillow in the works, but that'll have to wait.

Show Some Love for Polka Dots

So I now have TWO items on my etsy website! Whoo hoo!

I just listed my second item, Polka Dot Love Muscle Relief Wheat Bag....

I figured it was a good fabric to go with since Valentine's Day is coming up. I do have it in two scents, Eucalyptus and Lavender and will be listing the Lavender one either tomorrow or Thursday. (Trying to spread the listings out rather then all in one day!)

I also finished another Chocolate Tiffany wheat bag with peppermint oil inside it. That will be listed in the next few days as well.

I'm trying for a goal of 4-5 items in my etsy shop by Valentine's Day, which means I just have to make at least one more bag and list the other three items and I reached my goal.....

I know it SOUNDS easy, but with my work schedule it's hard because I only live at home from Monday night thru Friday it leaves little time to actually craft.

I'm also looking into other scents, so I have more options just in case people want custom orders! I'm trying to find either Mandarin, Sweet Orange, or Tangerine.... So if you have any ideas on where to get these essential oils I would be most grateful :)

First Sale!

I was quite happy when i logged onto Etsy yesterday afternoon and saw my Chocolate Tiffany Wheat Bag sold! I do now have another item up for sale, I call it the Sherbert Paisley Muscle Relief Wheat Bag. ( I was advised by a fellow etsian to add Muscle Relief to my title to draw borwsers in....see?  I do listen!)

I am working on some more with the other fabrics I have (posted down below). 
I am all for Custom Orders, s if you have specific color scheme and/or 'flavor' (essential oil smell...) please let me know by contacting me on etsy and I will make a special listing just for you!

Sorry, I have no photos to post.... but imagine my smiley face with curly hair and pj's on!

Ahh sweet smell of Relief

Good afternoon Everyone,
I FINALLY posted my first ever item on my Etsy shop,

I'm quite excited for a couple reasons, but one being that I accomplished a goal to list one item by Feb 1st!

So feel free to check out my shop and all and any advice/critiques are welcomed!

I call it the Chocolate Tiffany wheat bag. It is a wheat-filled bag with eucalyptus oil in it, and you can heat it up in the microwave for a nice warm treat for those stiff aches & pains you might have. The eucalyptus oil is great for any colds, flus, or sinus problems you might have since eucalyptus ia natural decongestant!

Thanks for looking and I'll be psoting more items as soon as I can make them!

It Ain't A Secret Anymore!

SO, My best girl-friend, Ms. R I will call her, is getting married next month and we are throwing her a bachelorette party on Jan 26th in Seattle.

It will be a Victoria's Secret themed one with Tiffany & Co. colors (her wedding colors)... and vic's secret because, well...she'll be getting a lot of lingerie :)

So! I'm in charge of food and drinks, and this will be held inside a swanky Seattle hotel suite...

I need some ideas for food and drinks that could work with the theme... which is kinda hard to think of because I don't really know of any lingerie-related appetizers!
Any recipes/links/etc is much appreciated my fellow etsians and bloggers!

I'm looking for easy cocktails, finger-food if possible, foods that are light since we will be leaving to go clubbing and to bars later on...

So I broke down and bought some fabric at Joann's today because as soon as I walk by them I get all of these great ideas!

So here are some sneak peeks of what I bought today, enjoy!
I bought some muslin, grey linene, some valentine's prints, the blue print and the circle print (don't they look like olives for a martini? very james bond-ish)
*Keep checking back to see what the fabric turns into....shhh!* :)

Swirls, dots, and Gladiators

So, I must admit something...
... I'm addicted to the new American Gladiators, just like I was with the original show. Stealth is from Bellevue, WA which I'm all about locals! yay!

So I'm attempting to post a couple pics on my apron I'm making...
I'm not sure on what to call it yet, but am open to any ideas!!

It is somewhat of a black and white floral/swirl design for the main fabric and black and white polka dots for the straps and pockets.

I will keep posting more photos of it as I go along! Feel free to critique and comment!

ahhh brides, Brides, and Seahawks!

Today I was at the Seattle Wedding Show ( and have never seen so many brides and their mom's in one place..!
I work at a Chapel and have a booth there, and will be there tomorrow as well (Come say Hi if you're in Seattle, Bastyr University Chapel booth!)

I can't believe I missed the Seahawks WIN tonight in the playoffs!!! SAD! Luckily, one of the vendors had a TV and had the game on!! :)

I'm staying in Seattle for the weekend, so I don't have any updates on my aprons right now.
Keep checking back though!

I'm thinking of 'naming' them with people names.... not sure yet,but I think it's a cute idea instead of "Paisley apron" or "Black and white striped Apron"...what do YOU think?

Thanks for reading me!!

I can hardly move....

Oh my goodness....
I tried kickboxing for the first time EVER last night, and I must say I AM BEAT! I don't think I have ever been this sore before. I went to a group class with Rayford's (my boyfriend) sister, Melissa, last night and her boss Denise. It was only an hour, and it went by super quick. But I am definitley going back! Tuesdays and Thursdays....

Apron update:
I am almost finished with my first apron! I have taken a few pictures as I have been sewing and pinning it, but not sure on how to post them on here......
Be sure to check my etsy shop in February!!! ♥
