A Quickee

I have been a busy little bee!

First, two friends of mine (Tim and Ellen) got hitched. My boyfriend and I had the honor of creating their wedding video. While doing so, I caught wedding fever and now my beloved boyfriend is terrified.

Second, I prepared Thanksgiving Dinner for my family for the first time and it turned out great!

Third, we had our closest friends over and did it all over again. It turned out great. I am exhausted.

 

Eating dinner number two...

Ellen (my newlywed friend) is a big fan of the necklace I made in my first project post. I wanted to make something special to wear to her rehearsal dinner to make her smile. I didn’t have a lot of time, so I consulted Grosgrain for some ideas. Grosgrain is a craft blog by Kathleen Francis. Sadly, I do not know her personally but I still think she rocks the Casbah.

Kathleen has been refurbishing sweaters this month. One in particular tickled my fancy.

I took a sad little yellow sweater and put it through a miraculous transformation. It has become one of my favorite pieces of all time and I love it very much.

Total look plus a peak at my kitten Brooklynn!

Ellen loved it. Hopefully soon I will be able to post the two of us doing a project together. She has great taste and I would love to create something with her!

That being said, stay inspired my friends! Check back soon for Stage 1 of my computer bag project!

    I have to say, wasn’t a big fan of the sweater on the hanger, then I saw the picture of it on you, and I LOVED it!! – You make everything look great! 🙂
