Treat Yourself!

Treat yourself to this movie!

And so it begins!

You know I am not even a little embarrassed to show you these pictures as this is my office/store/sewing room taken apart!!

Before I can have order I have to have disorder!!!

Now maybe you can understand why I did not rush to put my new sewing room together. This is a huge job!


Here you go…

My big mess that I will turn into my OCD organizational Heaven!

Boxes full of fabrics....

More boxes....

Did I ever show you my pink phone? Yes it works!!

OK, yes it will take some time, but stick with me, will ya’!!

I Won!!!!!

I WON!!!!!!
And I mean I won the Mother load!!
I won a blog makeover from the famous, yes famous Madame Samm!!
You all know this amazing lady, she has not one but two blogs.


On Christmas Day I took a little break from all the festivities and hopped over to my computer to take a peek at a few blogs. I am a follower of both of Madame Samm's blogs. I noticed on Sew I Quilt she was giving a Christmas gift to one of her lucky followers. I could not type my comment fast enough. In fact I was number one!!

Now after a while I thought, oh nuts, not number one, it rarely wins.

BUT when I went to bed that night I could not get it off my mind. I wanted some, any, a little piece of her genius on my blog.

My dear family let me sleep in the following morning (11 AM) BTW I was up at 5 AM today!!

When I awoke they said a lady named Samm called.

"What, why didn't you wake me up? You have no idea who that is!!!!”

I ran to my computer and there it was in full Technicolor was my new graphic!!

There was my smiling face and pretty pink bow! Bling and all!

Within one minute of looking the phone rang and it was Samm.
Now mind you we've only know each other from a few emails but this design was ME!!!

What Samm knew about me, WITHOUT me telling her...

I like vintage
And decorate in blue
That was it!!

And look at what I received!

Interesting facts about my design...
My girl was from a 1949 margarine ad
The font was the style used in the late 40's early 50's
The background design was reminiscent of the type of wallpaper used.
My name Jane is scanned blue gingham fabric, very popular in that time as was polka dots.

Luck is not my middle name, that is until now!

I am so very grateful for my new look. She is an artist. There is no doubt in my mind that Samm has a sixth sense.
Please do yourself a favor and visit her blogs. You will find her kindness shines through.

From the bottom of my heart I thank you Samm for all you hard work and your creative genius.
It will be a joy to post on my blog!

Out with the old and in with new new!!!

What a great way to start the Holidays and a wonderful way to bring in 2011.
Our rooms are done!!
Well, minus the plantation shutters for the windows!!
Well, minus any new furniture!
YET, a queen size sofa couch is in the works.
Oh and for my room, for now I am going to use old tables, shelves, desks, and my husband’s old dental cabinet.
Anything I can get my hands on for my room!!
And you know what?
I am so happy because it is


Someday, slowly I will replace old with new but for now, I am on cloud nine.

A retrospect in pictures….

And I cannot forget all my new beautiful, wonderful light!!!!!

What a wonderful adventure thank you for joining me in the process!!

A few new things.....

Here are the first new fun PINK items I bought for my new sewing room. I am sure many of you know Ayumi from the Pink Penguin. She is so adorable and makes the most wonderful things. Her work is amazing and her fabrics are so cute and whimsical.
She is so kind, I just send an email and ask for what I would like and presto it is here.

I ordered a PINK fabric basket and a PINK pincushion.
Look at how cute!!

Ayumi and sent me this darling pot holder which will never touch a pot!!

Take a look how cute she is…
Even her card has penguins from a hole punch on it!!

Stop by and visit her blog.
She is not only very talented but she is as cute as a button!!
Thank you Ayumi, you know I love them!

Hmmm, I used cute and darling a lot in this post but she is both of those things!!!

Happy Birthday Sweetie…..

Today is your golden birthday; 15 on the 15th. I will always call you my miracle baby, for after waiting eleven years for a baby God gave us a wonderful Christmas gift,


I will never forget that you were born during the TV show Family Matters, the episode when she was Cinderella and Stephon Erkel was going to ask her to get married. Some how I missed that part!!

Remember how we had to see Shrek 9 times in the theater. Once it was just you and me and they waited to start the movie until we got our snacks.

Favorite TV Shows…

Arthur, thank Heavens because I loved that show too!

Later Full House, if Joey did one more impersonation of Bullwinkle the moose…

And you can still catch us watching a good old rerun of Sabrina the Teenage Witch.

Favorite Toys...

My Little Pony

Polly Pockets

and we would collect all the different McDonald Happy Meals toys that we could find. You would play with them when ever we were at your sister’s sports games. Which was often!!! Mulan was your favorite.

Now that I am watching you play sports, I get lost driving because you are not there to help me, I have to go get my own concession stand food, I never know the score and I just plain miss your company. But that is how life should be; you are growing up to be such a wonderful young lady who makes me so proud. I love you so much!
Happy Birthday sweetie! xoxoxxo

PS Do not even talk about the driving thing with me!!!!!

The pink birdie smells of lavender and it is now in my PJ drawer. The darling reindeer is hanging on my sewing room tree. Thank you so much for such a thoughtful gifts and for thinking of me! I love them so!!
