The mess!

What a Beautiful Mess I'm in!!

This is one small portion of my studio.....the rest is equally cluttered!

I just glanced up from my sewing and realized that I even LOVE the way the mess looks! I love all of the fun colors, and fabrics that I am so luck to work with.

...and speaking of BEAUTIFUL....

"Hello, Lover!"

My new shoes are FABULOUS!
I have, unfortunately, developed a slight shoe obsession...
much to LEGO Hair Man's dismay.
Last week we celebrated my Grandparents 100th birthdays.
They aren't around anymore.
To celebrate, we had a big dinner with all of the things Grandma used to cook.
Of course, none of it was as good as hers.
I was assigned to make THIS......
Grandma loved it! I think that I am one of the only ones at the party to eat my serving though.
It is Lime Jello,
with Cottage Cheese,
Crushed Pineapple,
Celery (really!),
and Walnuts.

It has an interesting flavour, but it really did remind me of Grandma.

I was asked to make the banner for our Church's girls camp.
The theme was Mark 5: 36.

I love working with fabric in different ways.
....lastly, a blurry self portrait with my Macy bug.
Her eyes amaze me!

drooling over your clutter! Wish I had clutter that looked like that. . .mine is mundane. Love the toes! oh, and the shoes too! What a cutie girl you have there:)

That really is a beautiful mess! Love your banner, too.

My sister's mother-in-law used to make that very Jello "salad" and she wasn't even LDS! She was British.

I should send you a picture of my mess, it's similar to yours but a bit more sparkly.

That jello is one of my favorites! However, I've never had it with the celery and walnuts. I might just have to try that.

Nice shoes!

What great eyes. You have to do a piece of art using her as your inspiration.

Your shoes are stunning! You were rigjht about it looking good with jeans...

I love the banner, it's amazing. Is it made from all fabric?

Those are definitely "Come & get me, Lego-boy!" shoes. Nice pedicure.

The eyes are glorious! Just pools of do you not gaze at them all day?

Platforms are all the rage right now. And you can certainly pull them off my friend. Cute picture. Don't know about the jello though.

Now that most of the kids are gone...well there are two that lay claim to a few rooms although I never see them. I'm thinkin Hubbie and I might try this! Seemed like a great idea for you too!
Check out her site further cute ideas.
