wooden signs!

my latest projects have been signs.
this one i made for my mom for thanksgiving.my sister, lisa, taught me how to make these by
using mod podge to stick the paper to wood.
its pretty easy and i think they look really cute!
this one is made with bead board, ribbon, wire and beads. i strung the beads on the wire and bent them into letters. it took a while but i like the finished product!

YAY!!!! I've Finally Finished!!

With such a busy schedule its hard to find any leisure time! but after about a month of working on it, a couple of minutes at a time, i've finally finished another sewing project!!
A reverseable bag. I love it and feel very accomplished at the moment!!


I created the pattern one day while I was babysitting and thought it was cool.

new cellular device!

Who can say no to a cute & curious little girl when she wants to talk on your cell phone? apparently not me. the innocent look is quite decieving! So, thanks to my adorable neice (who broke my phone that i have kept in good condition for like 4 years) i got a really cute new phone!!

Love to sew!




So i wanted a dress form to design & sew clothes on but my impatience got the best of me and i also didnt want to pay $100. so i looked around on the internet and found ideas for making your own! i wrapped myself in duct tape then cut it off and stuffed it creating a perfectly fitted dress form for under $15!
my first creation off of this form.






second creation, i need to do something with the top but i dont know what.


Im planning to take fashion design classes next semester. hopefully i will be able to make useful and satifactory pieces of clothing when i have a more professional knowledge about the subject!

The First Post!

Well, college is better than high school! but i have to write essays for like every class, which isnt pleasant in my mind! im taking english, math, computers, college success (required?) and a class called teaching the exceptional learner. The teaching class is my favorite so far! i guess i like things that i can see an imediate practical use for like teaching or making things. next semester i will take more interesting classes i hope!
