I had a Ball Making this Fancy Holiday Hostess Apron
for My Partner!
I Used Gorgeous Christmas Red Velvet paired with Festive Holiday Plaid!
I Really want to make One, just like this for Myself!!
I won't say Who My Partner is because She has Not Received
Her Holiday Package yet.
I included a Festive Holiday Bracelet in the package,that She can Wear with Her Apron.

My Birthday Poem

This was Written Especially for Me on My Birthday, by My DD!!!

These are the Colors of the Rainbow
And Everyone of them Shows Right through.

I am going to Start with Red
So Here I go,

Red is the color for when I Blush Everytime You say You Love Me,

Orange is the Color for when I need You and You are There for Me,

Yellow is the color for Everytime You do Something

You are Brighter than The World Can See,

Green is the color for Your Personality which I Think can't get Any Better,

Blue is the Color of My Eyes You have Given Me,

And Last, Purple is the color of Your Rain of Beauty and Shimmer.

And that is Why I Love You!

***I can't Express what this Did to My Heart!
To know that I am Truly Loved, Unconditionally
& How Very Blessed I am to Have such an
Amazing Child!!

Ode To A Hot Glue Gun!

I wish that I could hold you tight
The way you hold my stuff
Your warm embrace feels oh so right
Securing all my fluff
And when you burn my fingertips
I'll bite my tongue and smile
Because the beauty we create
Will make it all worthwhile

Crazy for Cupcakes! Apron Swap

I have been out of the Swapping scene for quite awhile but really missed all the Fun!!

So, I decided to Create & Host the Crazy for Cupcakes Apron Swap on Swap-bot!!

It was a Very Small swap group, which was fine with me since I was just
getting back in the swing of things.

Two of My Very Dear Cyber Friends joined (Shawnee & Deb)
along with a couple of other
Great Ladies!!

As it turned out Shawnee was the person I was to send to!
It's always Fun making New Swap Buddies but, it is also
a Lot of Fun swapping with Great Friends!!

I purchased a Vintage 1967 Simplicity
Smock Apron Pattern
& decided to try it out in this Swap.

The Pattern was a Lot of Fun to make!
And because it was So Easy to make I got to put
a Little extra into the details:)

Here is the Finished Apron & the Goodies I sent along with it!
