Sunday Funday

Lots of fun things to share with you guys. I've been working my booty off getting a few projects done. I'm not ready to share all of them yet, I'll update soon with some sneak peeks :) Here are a few things I have completed though :)

I made my good friend Kristie her very own treasure box. I'm hoping all my friends will eventually have one of my boxes in their craft room :) Here is a small peek into what it looks like :)

Thought I would also share what I have been organizing this weekend. All the Valentine's Day swap cards. I'm still waiting on 4 more peoples cards. Hoping to have them out by Tuesday (if the cards get here tomorrow). I will send out an e-mail when they get sent out so you guys can keep a look-out :)

I finally finished the apron from Style School. I didn't realize how long it would take me, I wanted to add so many little details. I'm still having trouble getting the blue Mark-B-Gone off around the embroidered letters. I've tried soap and water but it keeps coming back, any suggestions?

Ain't it pretty???

Close-up of some of the buttons, used different colored threads for each button, details details :)

Here is a sneak peek of the Love Day gift I'm making for the hubs :) Only showing a tiny bit because he tends to look here sometimes.

Also, today is VERY special day for us Louisianians (hehe). Saints went to the Superbowl. AND... THEY WON!! 31-17!!! I am beyond happy, crying my eyes out actually!! This wasn't just a win for the Saints, but for the city of New Orleans as well!!! YAY SAINTS!! WHO DAT?!?!?! First time ever they have won the Superbowl!! I am so proud!!!

Here's some of our yummy Super bowl snacks..
Yummy salsa and chips from Mi Mexico

Buffalo Wild Wings in all different yummy sauces

Secret family recipe of BBQ baked beans, I tell you now these are the most amazing beans...EVER!!

Hope you guys have had an amazing weekend.

What did you do and what do you think of my projects??

  3. Cute! Your apron turned out very cute.

  4. that apron is so cute...i want one. i need to look through my stash and get to working

  5. This was my first time watching the super bowl.

    Up until last year, I didnt even know HOW to play football. I had someone watch it with me and explain it to me haha.

    When I knew who was playing, I was torn between Peyton and the Colts or Drew and the Saints.

    Ultimately, I went for the Saints because they were the underdogs and have never won.

    Throughout the whole game I was "YES WOOOO!" and "NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO"! Hahaha I was sooo excited when they won. I wasnt going to cry that is until I saw Drew Brees cradling his baby boy and accepting the MVP award.

    It was a GREAT game.
    I am due to visit Arkansas in the summer and my friend said that if I wanted, he'd drive me the 8 hour to New Orleans to see it for the first time and be in the home of the Saints (which are now my new favorite team!) I am even gonna get a Fleur De Lis tattoo haha


  6. love all that hand stitching, absolutely awesome.

  7. WHO DAT? WHO DAT? WHO DAT SAID THEY GONN BEAT DEM SAINTS?!? Not only was it our first win, but our first time in the superbowl ever! sweet feeling...I cried too. A great thing for the morale of our state...I love being from Louisiana!
    Liz and I spent the night, after the game, two stepping to zydeco music and getting crunk to all of the saints remixes of rap songs from Louisiana artists :]

    I love you and geaux saints! :]

Our state LOVES our Saints and it truely shows!! I cried when Porter made that awesome interception followed by a totally EXCITING TOUCHDOWN!!! I tried to call you back but the networks were busy...everyone was calling everyone -since the game was tech over.(I had my game on pause for about 10 mins) It is just AMAZING how everyone feels today.. Randy & Diana called me after the game to come over for a glass of Champaign!
