Reflecting on Reflections

One year ago today, I met the drummer for The Cure that I had had a crush on at the age of 14.  The meeting happened, and for a couple of minutes I was in Heaven.  Great memories I'll keep with me until my end of days.  Thank you JC!

Monday, Monday...

After I sent the Niece her cupcake bra (for her Cabbage Patch), I got a call from her requesting the glittery bottoms.  The bottoms were super easy to make.  I got a pair of denim baby shorts at the thrift store and covered them with blue glitter.  The glue I used (regular Elmer's glue) made the shorts a bit stiff and didn't really hold the glitter well.  I found that a coat of crystal white glitter fabric glue made an excellent sealant without adding additional stiffness.  The completed shorts are being sent off this week just in time for the Niece's 5th Birthday!  

I never overlook an opportunity to be crafty,  so I added a little flair to the inside of her birthday card with a pug cut out.

Homie Halloween

During my middle school years, some of my classmates were collecting little, plastic figurines called "Homies".  The figurines were only a couple inches tall, came in both male and female and were dressed in the fashions made popular by movies like Mi Vida Loca.  So here it is, my best attempt at having a Homie Halloween 2012.
