Happy Birthday!

Sorry the picture is blurry (it was a last minute pic!) It was my older son's 14th birthday yesterday, so Markus (my 4 yr old) and I baked a cake and cupcakes for him. Markus decorated most of the cupcakes all by himself, and a lot of green icing was everywhere!

For the card, I embossed the Extreme Guitar image on top of one of the Extreme Elements stamps and then simply added some punched out stars, some popped up for dimension.

What is wrong with my blog???

I have no idea what has happened to my blog, I have tried to fix it, but nothing is working. I will have to get a computer genius (Jess!) to help me. is a dreary rainy day today and I have managed to spend the whole day sewing. I started out sewing the "custom" curtains/blinds for our boat. All of the windows are wierd shapes, so I had to make a pattern for each individual pain in the a**! It got boring after a couple of hours so I decided to try this Amy Butler pattern I bought the other day. I have never done a zipper before so this is my first turned out OK, not perfect but pretty good. Now I have yet another useless bag...But it was fun to make!

Pictures of the curtain/blinds to follow once they are installed!

Catching up on projects today...

This has been a work oin progress for a few weeks. Markus wanted a robe, so he picked out some material and I finally finished it today. It was all done except for the cuffs, and he has been wearing it, but I didn't want to get a picture until it was all finished!
