Many moons ago (now it seems) we celebrated my sister and bro-in-law to be's birthday. My camera sucked at the time. I was really excited to buy this Canon point and shoot. The pictures were so awful and kind of repetitive, so I used Pixlr-O-Matic to edit them and make them more interesting. I have been sooo busy that I haven't had much time to upload or post anything. I spent some time colllaging them together. I'm quite excited.
P.S. I don't have access to cool fonts on the computer I'm using, but I realized with my portable GIMP, I can copy the image from a font website and then remove the text and apply as a layer. This has been a huge life saver.
I had seen this picture on Etsy of a tie on a onesie. I knew this was something I had to try. I drew a tie on paper and placed it accordingly. It had been some time since I embroidered anything, I figured this was a good time to whip something up again. Luckily I had this piece of scrap fabric and matching floss. It took about an episode of Korra (Avatar, must see show) to complete using a backstitch. I then placed on onesie, topstitched then zigzag stitched. I was really happy at how quickly the onesie came together.
I had made booties before. I believe they were kimono; being girl shoes, they were easier to me as fastenings on girls shoes are kind of decorative. I approximated the size (hopefully they'll fit) and used an old pattern I traced off the computer a while back. The fabric is like cargo pants fabric ( I know, I don't know what it's called). I wanted a thicker feel for the shoes. I had doubled the fabric and this made it quick thick. Also, the smaller the project and thicker fabric, it's harder to manage. Buuuut, I did get it done. And I was quite excited about it.

I received this cool email from "The Daily Digi" and it had this free download from Paula Kesselring. It originally had this kiss that I covered with this journaling tag from Promise from Shabby Princess (it's like my favorite kit ever, I think I have like of their kits and nothing else).
I don't know when it was that I "woke up" and not to say that
I was really ever insecure. But one day I just realized that as long
I try to be the person I want to be and try to be good, things fall into place.I have my body issues, sure. But when I try to fill myself with other good things,weight and crooked teeth have less room
and impact on ME. Try to be the best you inside and out. That is beauty.
