Boring blogging/ SEW....What's up!

Ok so I really want to blog but I always feel like I have to have pictures on all of my posts, well looks like Im going to have a really Boring blog for a while because my camera is busted;( so sad because I have all this stuff to take pictures of and NO camera. First off, I found as my friend Megan would say "a jem" of a sewing machine at the DI and amazingly it is fully functional and all parts are metal! YAY! I have been waiting for this moment for a long time, most of you are thinking "why didn't you just buy a new one?" well for those of you who know about sewing machines, know how expensive a good machine can cost and most of you who know me, know that I am borderline CHEAP, and broke (but that's a whole different story) haha. So you can imagine how thrilled I was when I found out this machine was in great working condition and only $20. I would love to say I have sewn a million things with it already but the truth is I find that the only time I have to sit down and sew is when the kids are naping, NICE! I love the kids clothes at GAP, but find their clothing to be rediculously OVER priced, So I frequent the store (with phone camera ready) and snap pics of my favorite pieces, examine the fabric and identify the pattern and before you know it Im home sewing a replica for usually under $8, this is where I wish i had my camera so you could see for yourself, Maybe I'll just take all my pieces over to my cousins or have one of my friends snap some photos of them. Can't wait to share my creations with you!

The "Megan" you are referring to in your post... is that ME?!

Oh, and I'm SO down for Gingerbread houses. It's funny, when we went to lunch last week to talk about Gingerbread Houses, there wasn't one word from either of us spoken about them. I guess we were too preoccupied with Duvet Covers, Comforters, and Bed Skirts. :) So fun! Please contact me ASAP about these houses we are to build so we can talk "deets". Loves!
