My not so new serger and My sewing room progress!

Ebay is now my new best friend. It has been around forever and I have visited before long ago but on my quest to find a serger it popped into my head as the "place to go", and so I did and guess what. I got a serger! YES! and it only cost me $56 bucks, plus s & h. I am so excited! This pic is super sucky sorry it was a copy and paste but it is mine so I had to show her off some how. She is a Simplicity easy lock model SL370 and the seller says it runs perfect and has everything with it. YIPPY!

I also bid on and won a few other things, mostly lil girl clothes size 6x for my Bry but I also scored some iron on's and some super cute fabric.

Both of these fab fabrics are 2 yrds and the bomb. The green floral one is vintage and I Love It!

These two cute lil iron on's were a had to have at less than a buck each. The F is no ones initial in our house but I am sure I can figure out something to use it for, thought about adding ancy to it and making the word Fancy on a shirt or pair of jeans, what do you think?
These lil frogs were a must also because I have the matching fabric and gonna get busy making a cute outfit for my Bry when they arrive in the mail.

O Yeah I way scored and you should see the darling outfits I got also were at an awesome price with everthing I got I spent way less than a hundred dollar bill I will post pictures of the outfits later I am to excited about the "me" things I got right now especially my SERGER!

And now for my sewing room news. It is done being painted and tomorrow I am going to spend the day organizing and putting everything in its place and then onto the real fun. SEWING, CRAFTING and whatever else I may wanna do in there because after all it is MY room :)

My Sewing room is getting a face lift!

Okay this is my second go around at having my sons old room for my sewing/crafting room but this time it is gonna stay mine and since that is so it is getting a face lift with two of my favorite color combinations Aqua and Red. I will post pics as soon as I get the painting done and everything set back in place which may take awhile cause it is a super mess right now but the painting is almost done so maybe I will take a few pics before I have it lookin all fine. I'm so excited I cant wait to get creative in that space, need to get busy making Christmas gifts real soon or I am gonna be freakin at the last minute like I did last year and I dont want to do it this year.

Hugs, Kathy

Yep my grandbaby is a boy, we found out on Monday. We all had a feeling it was a boy so it was not a suprise. He ways a little over a half a pound and looks just like me, lol ok well maybe not but he looked like he wants to look like me. All is good with mama and baby and her due date is still April 12,2010, his name is going to be Bryce Derrick, she has had that name picked since the day she found out she was expecting so it stuck and nothing sounds good except that name.

I haven't decided what I want him to call me yet but I do spend time at night right before I fall asleep thinking about what he should call me, lol. So if any of you have grandkids I would love to know what your name is to them.

Name for my "some day" online shop and a question

Hi gals, well as some of you remember a while back I talked about doing etsy or artfire or something to sell some of my handmade goodies, well now that my sewing room is just about finished I am thinking in that direction again.
I have come up with a name that I like and sounds kinda cute but thought I would ask for your opinion. Drum roll.........Darling Doodlebug!
Catchy? Silly? Rediculas? Foolish? Cute? or trash it and start again? Feed back please.

Now for another huge question. How do you put pictures or a picture with your blog title? I see so many of your blogs with cute photos and doodles and such behind or to the side of your blog name and mine is just so plain and BORING! But I cannot seem to figure out how to do it. Please HELP!

Weekend is now coming to an end and hubby and I got lots of things completed this week but still have lots on our list, yes list, oh did I not mention that to you. Well the other night I decided we needed a "to do" list and boy did we make one, but it proved to be very helpful because we would go to our list chose something that we could accomplish and finish and we would do it and mark it off, marking it off alone felt so good helped us see that the list is doable and should have been made a long time ago. It will take us quite a while to finish it and I am sure we will be adding to it as we go along but atleast now we have a "plan" and can see light at the end of the tunnel just by marking one thing off at a time. Anywho, food for thought.

I will be waiting for your info on the blog pic and your comments on my shop name.
See ya Monday.

Got some stuff to share with pictures.

Hi all, as usual I have not stayed up with my blogging but, I have been reading a ton of blogs and have begin to follow a ton more that I have found and that are so awesome have added some of their buttons to my blog so stop by and check them out.

We have been very busy around here. Been doing alot of things that have been just sitting on the back burner in desperate need of our attention one being my sewing room. I am almost done with it actually should have it painted and completed by this weekend and I will post some pics of my completed getaway. lol

Have lots of pics to share, finally.
Really need to pull out my good camera but my blackberry has done its job.

Our youngest had a busy week right before Halloween, sock day, crazy hair day, crazy hat day and blue and white day which is always on Fridays to represent and support our football team, "GO WILDCATS".

Crazy Hair day......

Crazy Hat day.......

Blue n white day "GO WILDCATS"

I made her tutu n her mum for blue n white day which was also Homecoming, I also made my 11 yr old daughters mum but she got away before I could take a pic and she brought it home looking not quite like it did when it left so chalked that one up to "darn"

Bry and I also made some Halloween cookies on Halloween day, I know how dumb to make a ton of sugar cookies with homemade frosting right before going trick or treating, well it was fun and daddy and I loved them, ALOT. :)

I also made her Halloween costume that day, minus the wings, lol. Made the tutu and spray painted her hair PINK, it was cool outside and I knew she could'nt wear a jacket with those wings(which by the way I got slapped in the face with atleast a hundred times that night) so I found her Barbie sweatshirt and told her she could go as the Barbie fairy which worked perfectly since she had just watched a Barbie fairy movie. You go Mom! We met up with her oldest sister and her husband and loaded them all onto the back of our Ford and went trick or treating. I drove while dad did the door to door, she is a daddy's girl so it was not happening any other way.

Isnt she just the prettiest Barbie fairy you have ever layed eyes on, we think so.

Well I did it, I finally posted with pics, Yeah Me!

Hope all of you are doing great and enjoying fall as much as I am. I will post pics of my creative space in a couple of days, I am so excited.
