Wow! This week has been unreal! I've been working late this week which gets me home around 7:30ish and I eat dinner while I craft. I've decided you can get the most amazing "distress stains" from hot sauce dropped onto Valentine tags! Must be something about the acid in the tomato that does it! Tonight I decided to blog while I eat so if you see anything on my teeth as I write this, let me know!
Anyway, my goal for this year is to go back in between other projects and write patterns for past projects I did last year. Did you catch that? I barely did! I cannot tell you how honored I am to receive scads, well scads may be a bit strong...how about...a lot... of emails requesting these tutorials...So, I'm trying to attempt this task. Is task a good word? This week, I have been busy writing/making the 10 Things I Love About You Heart Box....Actually for this one it's more like 15 things....Hope to have it done by Friday....Next up is what I'm calling Leisa's Wine Box, formerly known as The Traveling Wine Box. Then and yes, sit down for this one...I'm actually going to pull out the pattern that was written but needed a major reno...The Lynn's Lighthouse. Probably, the one project that I get at least five emails a day asking for. LOL! My pleasure I say! Now that that's in writing, I hope I actually can do it! LOL! It's going to be a busy year!
OK, can I vent for a second? Just a second and then you can get back to your fried chicken. Now you know it's going to be serious when I get out the Good Gravy On Biscuits Language! But, GOOD GRAVY ON GREEN BISCUITS GERTRUDE! Am I living in such a cave that I am the only one in this GREAT STATE of TEXAS that uses 3/16 eyelets? Really! How many stores do you need to go to to even find a single package....Yes, I looked in the leather and sewing depatments too! No, there's more....LOL! So, now the question is, WHY IN HELLATIONS can I just not buy a pack of 3/16 Bronze eyelets without having to... one, buy them online, two, buy them in a huge $14.99 JUMBO pack that just has 6 of the bronze colored ones in it! TELL ME! Bahahahaha!
Here's what I was lucky enough to purchase tonight...350 pieces even! Y'all I have about 6 of these 350 piece babies just to get the 6 bronze eyelets! LOL! And yes, I know I should be more organized and purchase a boatload of the 3/16 bronze rarities just to have them on hand! If you see them...Grab them!
Now that I've got that off my chest and dinner finished, I better get back to work....
Just wanted to jump on and say hello! Have an awesome night!
