Works For Me Wednesday- Flower Frog Pen Holder

Instead of using my vintage flower frog for floral arrangements. I use it to hold pens, pencils and paint brushes.

There are other things you could do with it too. For example you could put foam on the inside and stick suckers in it.
Ebay would be a great place to find these.

Hobby Hump Day- Travel Pouch

We leave for Florida on Thursday. I made this little pouch in which to put my wallet, maybe a lip gloss, and other essentials from my purse. That way I can take it from backpack, to beach bag. It has a strap so I can wear it on my wrist or hook in on a stroller.

Of course, I love cherries!

Now its your turn to play.

This is My House

We had Nathan’s conference this morning. His teacher showed us a packet of pictures that he drew about himself. This is his portrayal of our house…

Great. Our house isn’t that messy and chaotic!

Busy Weekend

I made these for my sister. She’s a senior and its her final homecoming!

This is a headband I made for her. Yes, we were fortunate enough to go to a high school with orange and brown as its colors!

She’s a rockstar volleyball player, so I made her this bag with her number on it.Here’s a closeup of the applique.

A really good friend of mine has been doing some graphic design work for me, so I can get my etsy store up and running.

To thank her, I made these. (Hopefully she doesn’t read this before she gets them!)

Here’s a closeup of the square.Heres a closeup of the little pouch. Its fully lined with green fabric. Here is her website.

Things I Love Thursday-Blood Orange Martinis

I admit there are few adult beverages that I don’t love, but this one is pretty new to me and its delicious.
1oz of Blood Orange Juice ( I buy the soda from Trader Joes. I like fizz. I’ve also seen it at World Market.)
1oz of Triple Sec
1oz of vodka ( I use plain, but orange flavored would be good too!)
squeeze of lime
Shake it up with ice and pour into a chilled martini glass. Garnish with lime twist.

Works for Me Wednesday-Eating at a Wedding

As you know we’re going to a wedding next weekend.
My tip today is all about your water glass and bread plate. When you sit down at a table of 8 or 10, sometimes our “miss manners” escape us and we forget which plate and water glass are ours.
Here’s a way to remember make a “b” with your left hand and a “d” with your right hand. “B” stands for bread, so its on the left and “d” stands for drink, so its on your right.
You’ll thank me later when you don’t accidentally drink “sweaty dancer guy’s” water.
