A Puppy Fit For A Princess?

Boog loves to wear little girlie heels and carry a purse, but when I asked what she wanted to be for Halloween, she said she wanted me to make her a puppy costume. Since I had just crocheted up a lady bug costume for her sister, I had a pretty good idea of how to alter that into a puppy, so I told her I would try. The following pictures are what I came up with.

This is a picture from behind, of both girls modeling their costumes!

Lookie, lookie!

I am really NOT full of myself, but I am soooooooooooooo in love with my latest creation, that I just have to share it! I think it is sooooo, so cute! I think I will celebrate with another cup of chai!

Whaddaya think?

This is the unfinished product! It is intended for this model, but she got bored with me putting it on and taking it off, so I had to use my other model for the result pics!
TaDa! Lady Bug!

It will have a shirt underneath, but it was just too warm today and I don't have the air on, so she went sans undershirt!

Taylor Swift has a song out and some of the lyrics go like this...

She wears short skirts, I wear t-shirts.

She's cheer captain and I'm on the bleachers.

Boog and Meeeeema were having a conversation just a minute ago, or so Meeeeema thought. Boog was just singing the song and Meeeeema thought Boog was talking about her, so here goes.

Boog, "You weah high hewls, I weah t-tiwrts!"

Meeeeema, "No, I weah pip pops!"

Do you ever feel like you are searching for something, but don't know quite with something is? I am spinning my wheels today! I feel out of sorts! I guess maybe it is just because the kids went back to school yesterday and I don't really know what to do without them.




don't tell them I said that!

For this brief moment of clarity, I believe I might need some chai! ;)

Working With A New Medium

Last week, a FB friend approached me about crocheting something with jute twine. I thought it might be pretty hard to do, but I told her I would try it anyway. I am usually up for a challenge and it was definitely something I would never have thought of on my own, so I told her I would TRY.

After finding what I needed, I got right to work. At first, the jute twine was making my fingers rather raw. I guess my hands, sort of, toughened up, because after a few times of working with it, I wasn't bothered so much by it.

I made a set of bowls. I was pretty proud of them, but the twine I got from one store was a slightly different color than the twine from the other store, so I have a little color variation. I was not exactly crazy about that, but when the friend looked at the pics I posted on FB, she said it was good to have options. That made me feel better about it! She used to be an art teacher, so she knows her stuff! ;)

Anyway, you wanna see some pics, right?!

Happy viewing! ha!

See the lighter color of the outside bowl?

I tried my hand at some stars too! Yep, she suggested that too!

Momma B

Momma B...has a headache! trying to kill the headache with a 20oz bottle of Pepsi! getting ready for a craft show this weekend!

MommaB...wonders why her husband is working tonight, since that makes everything crazier!

MommaB...has been yelling at the kids a lot today, even though it is not their fault she is insane!

MommaB...thinks maybe it is their fault, a little bit anyway, that she is insane!

MommaB...thinks it is not polite to blame "the children" for her shortcomings!

MommaB...can not help but blame them!

MommaB...might really be losing it here!

MommaB...has been arguing with herself a LOT tonight!

MommaB...hopes you all are having a wonderful evening and an even better weekend!

This is MommaB, signing off!

Little Green Men Have Arrived

Little green men have arrived and they are all over my house! Ok, so maybe it is just one little green man and he is sitting on my printer, but who's counting! ;)

Bring on Fall and Halloween! I loooove it all! The kids will dress up as something fun and we will hopefully enjoy a night of walking the town, with all of the other kids in town!

One Of The Cutest Things I Have Ever Seen!

Two Girls

Two little girls asked for a flower, on an evening walk through town, like they always did. The mommy told the girls that there were no flowers, only weeds. The two little girls did not mind being given a simple weed, instead of a flower. They proudly held them over the course of the walk and even took them into the house, when they got home.

The next morning...

One little girl got out of the shower and had her clothes in one hand and her FABulous find from the night before in the other hand. The little girl proclaimed that she had a "pitty, pitty powa." The other little girl looked up at her momma and said, "mommy, where's my weed?!"

Now, you may not see any reason to like the story, but Meeeema, the 2 1/2 year old, thought she had all of the world in that one "pitty powa" and Boog, the 4 year old, could only see a weed, but she still treasured it enough to wonder what had come of hers. Life may seem to hand you weeds, but you should still treasure them, because they are still yours and were picked especially for you!

A Wife For My Monsta!

This is Monsta Miss Myrtle! She is the wife of Monsta Man Manny! She is adorable, or is she? Well, you know what I mean! I am really enjoying making little Halloween creatures. Of course, with my society induced ADHD, I have changed gears again! I am going to make up a scarf, or possibly a hat and scarf set, but after I finish that, I will probably start on some new play food, or some Halloween buckets! My sister and I have a sale this month, so I have to get the ball rolling!!!

I hope you are all doing well! I hope you had a great weekend!
