Is She For Real??

Is She For Real?

Am I the only one who struggles with the vision of the Proverbs 31 Woman?
I sat down this morning and Googled,
(as you get to know me you will realize how much I Heart Google!!),
Images of what she might look like...Here are some of the pictures:

    


As I looked through pages of images, I noticed she does not have a face.  I guess that is purposeful as we all strive to meet some of her attributes.

OK, I know it is a poem!  But, do you know it even references EXERCISE!! 

UGH!!!!

I have finally found a study I am so excited to do:



I am sooo excited to start this study I can hardly contain myself!!
How Does she do it?
Does he help at all?
Did she ever sleep?
Is she for real????

I am hoping to post some of our findings and discoveries at this study progresses.  Feel free to follow along.  We will get started next week!
You have already done this study??  I would HEART feedback!

Such Fun!!

Sew & Sew Pinterest Style


Sharing A Little Sew & Sew


OK, so I have has these fabrics in hopes of making E something for the 4th of July...
Well, here is sat for 2 months!!
I FINALLY  got around to making her a Twirl Sundress!  

LURVE IT!!


Well, it looks a little plain and I know just what it needs...

First it needed Little E and then it needed a Chunky, Red Letter "E"!!!

Perfect and it will even look good as a top when she is a little older!!


Pinterest Project...

So I have been seeing this project all over Pinterest for the Maxi Dress Tutorial
Looked SUPER easy...so I picked up this fabric...


I love turquoise!!  It's so YUMMY!!!

So I followed all instructions and came out with this...(which I do not like)


I had to shorten because a 5'1" girl with curves looks ridiculous in something that is so long!
It left so much fabric around the waist that it didn't seem to fit right.

**I did make the belt and I love it!!  I will for sure put it to good use!**

OK, so I pondered over the dress a little and decided to make some changes to see if I could save it...
I took out a tank and used it as a guide to slim the fabric down and then remove the funky looking sleeves.  I also curved the neck line so it wasn't a big "V".

Here is the result:


I will actually wear this now.

All in all, I salvaged a Pinterest Fail into a Pinterest Perfect (for me anyway).
It will even make a cute through on to go to the beach or the pool!!

So, Wednesday was a Sew-Sew day as well as I fed my OCD for the day!!

Such Fun!!

I Have OCD!!!

HELP!!!  I HAVE OCD
Obsessive CRAFTING Disorder!!

While I was cooking (Yes, I can multitask!) dinner the other day, I was looking around the kitchen and came across these...


"What can I do with them?" I was thinking...
(I have failed to mention I cannot throw away glass and I have now become a Glass Hoarder of sorts)

Then I came across these on the counter as well...


A bowl of different colored glass stones.
Little E has been playing and sorting them for the past 2 weeks.

Then I thought of this marvelous tool...


The Hot Glue Gun!!!
I could really use one in pink!

The next thing you know I am gluing stones around the outside of this baby food jar, all while cooking dinner.
My son came in and saw the finished product and asked where is came from.


Proudly I answered, "I just made it!"
He paused for a minute and then said, "Do you have some sort of crafting problem that makes you not able to go a day without starting or making a project?"
Out of the mouths of babes the truth always spills...

So, I thought about his question and I must agree. I have a Crafting Disorder!!

My name is Lynn and I have OCD!!
Obsessive Crafting Disorder!

But this is something I hope to never take a pill for as I Heart Crafting!!

I know this project is a little lame as it's just a little tea-lite holder for our bathroom, but the main point is sharing that you are not alone in your disorder!  So live free and CRAFT, but remember to share your work as you never know who else out there may be wanting to learn how to do something new!! 

CRAFT ON!!

Such Fun!!

Muffin Tin Monday!!

It's Muffin Tin Monday!!
Huh?!
What is Muffin Tin Monday You Ask??


It is a Fab - U - Lous way to introduce your little one to all types of new foods!
I totally wish I had done this with my first child, who is now the PICKIEST eater on the planet.

In the tray today I have Boar's Head Honey Ham, sliced American Cheese, Applesauce, Edamame, Matchstick Carrots & Pistachios.  What a great variety of flavors and textures, if I do say so myself! 

But....will she eat it??


She dove right in!  I was so excited to see her eagerness!!

Was it successful???

Carrots not so much this time, but she devoured everything else!  She really enjoys working at her food because she ended up asking for more Edamame and Pistachios!! (can't say I blame her-YUMMY!)

This is not a new concept as I have seen many versions on other BLOGS and especially Pinterest!
I have also seen it called Tin Tuesday/Thursday and also A Baby Buffet!
It was fun for me to come up with what to put in it and am excited to plan for next week!

What? You do this too?  Please share some of your Tray Favorites so I can try with Little E!!

Thanks Pinterest for the Inspiration!!

Such Fun!!
