icecream for dinner

Do you sometimes have icecream for dinner? I sure do - sometimes several times a week!
One reason I don't wanna grow up! ;)
Normally, I'm a support local business goer, but I do love Cold Stone. Strawberry blonde is my favorite there! Second place would be chocolate with Reese's.
Last night I think I waited in line for 15 to 20 mins to get icecream - not lying!! Geez Thursday nights must be big icecream nights! But it was worth it.
Do you have a Cold Stone near you? What's your favorite combo?

Homeward Bound Betty Paper Doll

For sometime now I've loved this etsy shop; Illustrated Ink! I saw this paper doll mermaid on there and really needed to have it! Paper dolls are right there with friendship bracelets when it comes to childhood nostalgia! Though my paper dolls weren't half naked mermaids with tattoos, but now they are!!
So I cut out all the pieces, used a small piece of card board, and a thumb tack to punch little holes into the pieces. I used the little brads that were provided and put all the pieces together!
Tada! I like it so much!

bff bracelets

Yesterday, I purchased 3 friendship bracelets from Justine and her sister! 3 heart friendship bracelets for the 3 of us Farley kids (I understand I'm not a kid, but forever I will be referenced as a Farley kid to my family and friends). I cannot wait to get them in the mail then give em to my siblings!
Last night, I got a bit nostalgic and made a friendship bracelet, just for fun! I have a mess of embroidery floss, so I quickly picked colors and made one! I used my bobbin thingie to hold the bracelet! Worked out well!
The one I made was short, perfect for a tiny wrist!
You should go over to Justine's blog and get a heart bracelet!
Oh and Monday I will be having a giveaway so get excited! :)
Have a wonderful weekend!

Double Trouble

Hey! Did you know right now at Starbucks, if you buy a drink in the morning, after 2pm your drink is only $2 bucks! Pretty good deal if you ask me!
They call in the Treat Receipt, and the Starbucks guy kept saying "Treat Receipt! Treat Receipt!" And Mickey was freaking out! You can't say t-r-e-a-t without him losing his mind! And guess who didn't have a treat! Thanks Starbucks guy! ;)
So the treat-less Mickey had to settle on a carmel light frappuccino with two extra shots - just kidding! Though he did lick the crap out of the lid - gross, but cute!
So go get your coffee and then have $2 coffee in the afternoon. :)

WIP - MyPaperCrane Quilt part 2


What do you think of my WIP!? I decided to use polka dot fabric in between the square rows, so it wouldn't take away from Heidi's wonderful fabrics and characters! What fabric should I use as a border? Any ideas? I was thinking I'm going to crochet a border too!

Holy Moly!

I killed it in 4th grade making friendship bracelets, or so I thought! Look at this awesome heart friendship bracelet! I NEED one! :) I think that it just the cutest! I have a love of friendship bracelets ps. Go over to Here We Go (her sister makes them ps), who is consequently being featured on Freckled Nest! Go check out both!

I had an incredible burst of energy last night! I guess I was tired of being sick! I sewed together all the MyPaperCrane fabric squares, I finished my fancy pillow cases (finally), and finished the border on the Optimus Primary Color Blanket! I was pretty stoked and now I can't wait for another productive night! Fingers crossed ;)
So I thought while I was showing you my fancy bedroom pillows, I'd show you some books I've started! Sudoku to keep me thinking, Charlotte's Story and Paradise for Sale are books on Florida, I still haven't finished Dead in the Family - Yikes! It's just not as good as the past Sookie books and maybe I'm Vampered out! Handmade Home and The Gentle Art of Domesticity are two WONDERFUL craft books - I highly recommend them!

More bedroom fun - That's what she said! by KatieKutthroat - This will NEVER get old to me! It's from The Office ps and I probably say it 5 times a day - at work, home, sometimes I want to put it in the comments of your blogs! This maybe immature, but I can't help it! I have to do it! - That's what she said!!! See haha!
Ok and lastly, I finished the border on the Optimus Primary Color Blanket! I used this book; Crocheted Borders, I did not make a fancy border, but soon I hope you have one to show you all!

Sweet Darlin'

A few of you have asked me what yarn I used and more specifically what colors I used on my Mother's Day Blanket. My friend Molly's sister in-law is having a baby and I think these colors would be perfect for a new baby girl blanket!
I only use I Love This Yarn yarn, it's so soft! I've tried other yarns, but I can't do it! Sounds silly huh? I'm pretty sure I crochet incorrectly (my grandmother told me) if I crocheted correctly maybe I could use other yarns, but the way I do it the yarns rub my fingers. I Love This Yarn doesn't leave marks because the yarn is soft - that's why I use it!
Here are the colors I used: Hot Rose, Sungold, Antique White, and Coffee. Now you could just trade the Hot Rose out with a green or blue for a baby boy blanket. Or don't you generic gender colors at all, go with orange, orange is my favorite! I used about 3 rolls of each color for the blanket I made my mom. Email me if you have any questions! ;)

Thank you ALL so much for your very kind get well words! :)
I'm feeling MUCH better today! Thank goodness!

I'm siiiiick

I had a bad cold that turned into a sinus infection. I've never had one before and it's pretty awful! I miss checking all your blogs and blogging myself. I haven't been able to sew or crochet, but one afternoon I did watch Grey Gardens. My sister wanted to see it right when it came out and then Amber and Scott said it was amazing. It was indeed amazing - amazing that it's a true story!! Now I will warn you this is not a movie to watch when you are sick and can't leave the house, because after watching it you'll want to go out and do SOMETHING, anything, everything!! I watched the documentary first from the 70's and then the HBO movie Grey Gardens with Drew Berrymore. That's the way to do it; documentary then movie!
I hope you all are doing wonderful!!
I've been drinking tons of fluids, taking lots of medicines, and sleeping - fingers crossed I get better soon! Carly, your surprise in the mail make my weekend! Thank you so much! Lauren, I'll put both Grey Gardens in the mail for you tomorrow - you're gonna love it!
I'll be back to feeling better soon!

Ikea fabric

I have this love/hate relationship with Ikea. Walking through Ikea makes me crazy! But I'll make that crazy walk to get some awesome Ikea fabrics! I purchased this fabric here from Ikea. More Ikea fabric love.
I knew what I wanted to do with it right away - cut it all up into little plushies!
I cut around the fox and picked out some Anna Marie Horner Flannel fabric I had for the backside of the plushie. I embroidered Rachel's name right on the fox, then sewed up around the fox, leaving an opening to stuff it! Tada! Quick and Cute!
This fabric had foxes, squirrels, and bunnies on it! Danny, the squirrels will be for you! I made the this sly little fox for my little cousin Rachel, whose last name is Fox. I love finding fox stuff for my cousins! More foxy stuff here and here.
Can't wait to give it to her! And I can't wait to make a few more!

I'm so glad everyone liked the Candy Sushi! If you make some send me the photos to post! I can't wait to see what you can up with! Oh and Hello! to the sweetest Starbucks gal who loved the candy sushi yesterday at the Starbucks drive thru! :) she's going to make them for her boyfriend's birthday! Pretty cute! Have a wonderful Wednesday everyone!
