On a roll!

I finished my Witch & Owl Halloween embroidery - woowhoo! 
It's for a swap with this lovely lady!
I'm so excited to send it on to her! She made me my awesome Mini Mickey!
I would like to name this little witch, Amelia, from the Sookie Stackhouse Series! Read it!!
For all you OWL loving gals!
I think the petticoat is the best part! I'm going to embroider a little lamb with the same French knots, look at me using embroidery lingo! I bought that Embroidery Effects book by Sumblime Stitching and now I'm learning, it's a French knot, but "those lil knots".
Just a little picture of my super cute Mickey boo! This is his sad face, because I can't embroider and pet him at the same time - whomp whomp whomp!

Puppy love

I'm a big slacker when it comes to doing the projects from the Red Velvet Art classes!
But last night I made the Embroidered Text Pillow project! I'm going to give it as a bday gift!
The photos are from my iPhone, I forgot my camera at work.
Ok so two of the projects down, like five that I haven't started, so guess what I'll be doing this weekend! I need to get crafting, because there are 7 family/friend bdays in October! Crazy huh? But I'm really looking forward to all of them and HALLOWEEN! What are you all looking forward to?

Thank you soooooo much Karla! I love it! It is amazingly cute! She created the pattern and everything! Go to her etsy and take a peek! All the Halloweenies are so precious!
But Mickey does NOT! lol He wanted to eat the mini Mickey! Of course didn't let him!

A yellow rose tattoo for Nanny

Today is my Nanny's birthday! 
I am in the process of making her an embroidered yellow rose tattoo!
Here's the story behind it: I was 18, it was Christmas day, I told my whole family I had got my first tattoos, and they all freaked and were pissy at me for the rest of the day! But not my Nanny! Why because she's the sweetest person I know! She told everyone she use to want a yellow rose tattoo, which shocked everyone! If she really did or didn't isn't important, because she make everyone calm down and made the day much better for me!

I just love her so much! I wish I could take her to get a real one :) maybe next year!
Don't worry, Nanny doesn't go online, my uncle bought her a computer, but she gave it back lol Oh Nanny - so posting this won't ruin the surprise!

RVA Embroidery Hoop Mini Album

The Red Velvet Art Classes started yesterday! I made the first project, an embroidery hoop mini album for my sister, Lauren! She recently moved to Nashville, which is 12 hours driving, from Tampa, and I miss her soooooo much! Plus her birthday is in October, but I'm of course sending this to her early! I used some of the buttons Carly gave me, they were perfect!
I'm not huge into scrap booking, like at all, so I didn't decorate the inside very much! But why would I need to, look how pretty Lo is! 
I used a bunch of different materials to make this little hoop album, what a mess :)

Things I <3

Dunnys, Munnys, Heros & Heartbreakers oh my! I do love vinyl toys, even if I'm 26!
This shirt from Kidrobot is way too cute!

I love this heart spoon from OAK in Boston! Next visit to Kris I need to go take a peek at this place!

I maybe too short for a skirt like this, but a girl can dream right! I love it!
Look a Mickey pup! I always see this cupcake book! Do you cupcake gals have it? Is it any good?
This is my FAVORITE! My sister teases me for loving animal print, but I do, I love it!! In small amounts of course, or a whole room lime green with leopard print carpet! Either way!
