I have a light tan skirt that is A line that I have in my sewing pile to make into a pencil skirt-but now I'm definitely getting lace and
Now I'm a person that carries everything that's happened to me, my past, with me into my future. But I refuse to let it make me bitter. I still completely believe in love, and I'm open to anything that will happen to me. ~Nicole Kidman
The first LP I ever bought, way back in 1981. I remember getting the bus to town, going into Woolworths and handing over my hard earned money. I got home and placed my pride and joy on my very cheap and tacky Fidelity HF42 Portable Record Player. I may have only been eleven but in my eyes I became a man that day. I must climb into my parents attic and see if I still have it, Coz the newer CD version just doesn't sound the same. but I'm probably biased. Where did the Years go?
No inviting the turmoil into my life anymore. I don't need a project. I have enough on my plate trying to make a better life. I'm happy to help you make yours better if you want the help, but if you need to drown in the misery then so be it. Time to save my energy for those that want, and ASK, for the help I'm so eager to provide.
This right here is why I won't even make an effort to make friends anymore. Yeah, I have no friends. Yeah, it sucks. I wish I did. But im not going to put a buncha effort into a friendship and get my hopes up to have them just walk away like everyone else in my life. It's not worth it. Not when I'm the only one who ever makes an effort. So ill just remain lonely and friendless.
I love this skirt, I have one I paid a lot of money for and it is worth every penny, but now I can make my own!!!
wow this is me. yes... dear I'm trying so hard to be everything everyone needs me to be and I'm drowning. I don't have someone who loves me and anchors me. I don't have that mutual friend in my life... I don't have you. James has shown me how much he depends on his wife and gosh do I need that person. but not just anyone. you. you make me invincible when I'm weak. I love you and I'm drowning without you.
Okay...now I need to make up my own sushi tattoo. I'm addicted to sushi, and getting tattooed - how have I not thought of this?? Dragon Roll anyone?
I'll have to see if I can pencil that into my schedule....um looks like I'm free now until always so lets go
Snow and Snowflakes
I started taking my pregnancy pictures in my favorite (non maternity) yellow shirt. I wore the shirt in Paris and have some great memories of walking around in my shirt and scarf. And now I have some great memories of trying to fit into that shirt at 39 weeks pregnant. Ha! My daughter just turned 18 months so I decided to bust out the shirt and start getting yearly pictures of her in the shirt. I really wish I would have started on her first birthday but we’ll take an 18 month start and plan on getting pictures every birthday for now on.
This is a story that I have never told. I gotta get this off my chest to let it go. I need to take back the light inside you stole. You're a criminal. And you steal like you're a pro. All the pain and the truth. I wear like a battle wound. So ashamed, so confused. I was broken and bruised. Now I'm a warrior. Now I've got thicker skin. I'm a warrior I'm stronger than I've ever been. And my armor is made of steel you can't get in I'm a warrior And you can never hurt me again ~Demi Lovato - Warrior
There's no disputing that I'm a talker. I have an opinion about everything. But when I stop talking and I'm observing what you do, you better believe my brain is on overdrive to memorize everything you just said. People who know me well usually think when I'm not talking that I'm mad. Sometimes that's true, but you'll always know if I'm mad. Many other times I'm just letting information sink in, especially when it comes to careers, money and family memories.
Since I have been living yarn starved in Africa, I have amassed a large amount of itchy acrylic yarn (my nemisis) that I cannot have touching my skin in any way. But we like to party and this is a good way to bust into some itchy stash. I´m gonna go for it
In three minutes, this man sums a lesson that I've spent my entire life trying to learn, and to be honest, I'm still not there yet, but, this is definitely worth watching. "Ultimately knowing the truth sets you free."

since I was little, I have gotten watches for my birthday and/or Christmas. I have lost a few but now i'm trying to start a collection (I

10 Things That Have Made All the Difference in marriage. This is definitely something I'm going to remember and some things I am going to start doing now! Love it!
I have my own recipe but this is to remind me that I can make it
Spiral jewelry in a conch piercing. Too cute. The bar I have now is super annoying. Definitely getting this.
And SSMBB was about a guy who joined the foreign legion and who - in the part we haven’t seen - returned looking a LOT worse for wear. Maybe homeless, definitely psychologically damaged. My theory is that they left this out from the short film, in order to make it into a feature film, i.e. Samarkand. :) I hope so, I really want to know what happened.
This is it!! THE dress I'm wearing in Syd's wedding!!! Kate Hudson looks better than I do, but whatever... I don't have a personal trainer or a slew of assistants to make me look like that!!

This is $20 at Target, but I'm pretty sure that I can make something very similar in just a few hours using supplies I already have.
crafts and projects to try
I know this is a little silly, but I'm really getting into using glass jars as food storage, containers for leftovers, and to take my work food/beverages in. They're so eco friendly. Lazy Lasagna | Big Red Kitchen - a regular gathering of distinguished guests
This is a good idea, but I hope I never have that many beads in my "pounds to go" jar!
I have a daughter now, and one of my greatest fears is getting her through those tumultuous, insecure, awkward middle and high school years with her sense of confidence intact. I would love to protect her from every mean girl, every unkind word, and every sting of rejection possible. However, I recognize not only the impossibility of that, but also the lack of wisdom in doing so.
Introduction to Sewing Basics. I have a sewing machine and ton of cute fabric but I'm afraid to ruin it while I'm learning. Ughhh
Sewing Like Mad: This is an adorable skirt. Would love to try it out. Totally in love with this... I'm thinking tan, mint, and coral? just a thought....
sewing idea: bed storage. Pretty sure the original intended use is for kids... but I'm thinking I'd LOVE this for my ipad, glasses, books, cell phone, jewelry I forgot to take off before climbing into bed. I MUST make this.
I've been getting a lot of questions on how I do my eyebrows do here is a tutorial that I posted a few weeks back. Keep in mind that this is for a very artificial brow look! I change it up, but when I'm going for a more defined look this is what I do: 1.) I start by underlining my brows with MAC Fluidline in Dipdown which is a gel liner, but you can use a brow pencil for this step too! 2.) Next I shade lower half with a medium brown brow powder then fill in the rest with a lighter brown shad...

Lace Knickers - indian clay, white, or black...i would have put this is my GOD NO folder...but i think under a skirt that could be really cute
