Lets Get Organized........With a Bowl full of lemons....

So The NEW Year is quickly approaching... which I'm still sitting here pondering how in the world did that happen.... Where did 2010 go. Recapping on the year and the NON progress that I had made on my organizing of the house, the sewing studio, our life, the clothes, I think you get the point.... I vowed to ring in the New Year with  a Clean Slate..

I love the Holidays, I think by far its my favorite time of year, but the Clean up also means purging out with the old in with the new. The New Year means fresh starts, Clean Slates, New Resolutions and just plain starting over, so when I came across one of my favorite blogs doing a Challenge.... I couldn't resist.

So if you get a moment head on over to ................................

And get Organized with us... Make sure you check out the Checklist before the 1st so that you can make sure that you are ready, and don't forget to snap those Horrible before pictures and the fabulous after photos, at then end there is also a giveaway that's right a giveaway... And I know I'm a sucker for Free stuff... So Lets get organized together and start 2011 off right.

Is it just me.... or is everyone.....

I'm sitting thinking that WOW its the 15th of December and holy cow where did the time go. Christmas is less than a week and a half away. I cant believe it I have so many sewing projects to finish, I have presents to wrap... I have shopping still to do, but through all the craziness and stress the family and I took a mental health family day and went to brunch with Santa. My babies are growing up before my eyes I cant believe its been 5 years since B was born. Here are a few pictures from our brunch with Santa for everyone to enjoy.

I think her face says it all.....
 Mommy and her little man
 Me and my Princess

 He is so handsome.
 Me and the hubby
 Showing Santa her earrings

 They got to wrap up there family day with there Great Grandma... We had a great day and I feel like it was a  great day to kick off the holiday season...

So what is your Christmas wish this year... Have you been a good girl or boy... Did you ask Santa for all your wishes... Did you think what do I want this year. I have been thinking for weeks what do I want for Christmas this year... So lets see I know that I could use allot of new fun things for the sewing studio to start I want..... The simplicity Bias Tape Maker I think by far that is my #1 wish this year.... 
Then hubby wants a flat screen TV so we can get rid of our entertainment center that I think is on its last leg.... so that leaves me to think what else would I really want maybe a new TV stand... or a corner tv stand , or maybe a fireplace TV stand.  There are so many possibilities out there for TV Stands, I think by far my favorite might have to be the fireplace TV stands as that is where I keep going back to. I have found a few that I truly love though I posted some pics so that you could see.

But I have to say this corner unit is cute. If you are in the market this holiday for a TV stand you can click on over to CSN stores and they are guaranteeing some of there site to get there for Christmas. So if you get a moment click on over. I think the other holiday wish item by far would have to be the Haan Steam mop, with 2 small kiddos This is a must have for any mom. I hope Santa has this underneath my tree this year.... HINT HINT....And did you know that I found it at best buy in RED... OMG I think I'm in love

So here is a sneak peak into my Christmas wish list... so what is your Christmas wish list this year... if you could have anything in the world what would it be this year... besides world peace and stop hunger and to make sure every little angel in the world has someone to tuck them in at night and all the little angels in heaven have someone to hold them tight. I wish everyone a very joyous holiday season and look forward to catching up with everyone soon.


WOW where did the time go.....

I was sitting her and realized I had about 5 minutes to catch everyone up on the last few weeks. I cant believe that its been a few weeks since I have had a chance to blog and talk with everyone. We have been so busy between C turning 3 which I have attached a few pictures from her party.


 Cant you believe that its been 3 years...  Well since her birthday we have also been dealing with this crazy sick bug that seemed to have plagued our house but we are all on the mend now Thank goodness for that.
  We also got to spend Thanksgiving with some wonderful friends and family which i have included so pictures.... We had a blast it was nice to be able to celebrate with each other and share with each other what we were thankful for. I feel so blessed to have some awesome friends and family in my life to help guide me in the direction.

I'm so thankful to have such wonderful people in my life,Wwell there is a quick catch up on what has been going on here in good ole Virginia. I hope everyone else had a great holiday.

Total Randomness ......

So as i sit here on this wonderful Sunday evening I find myself, relaxed and just plain excited about the upcoming Crazy busy week. I find myself reflecting on the past, present and future and anticipating what lies ahead..... Am I the only one that does that.... who knows.

 Today was a pretty productive day got the house cleaned, got to spend some quality time with kiddos, hubby had to work today, so he was missed. I have been sewing up a storm trying to get those last minute Christmas projects done, I got to also spend some time with some great friends. I'm looking forward to the upcoming Holiday, WOW who would have thought Thanksgiving would be here in just a little over a week. WOW, where did 2010 go, this week I find excitement not only in sewing those Christmas projects, but getting ready for baby girls 3rd birthday.

  The past 3 years have been not only rewarding, sad, happy, overwhelming, and fun but I have learned how to be a stronger person a better mother and wife and learned how to let things go and move on and away from things that I cant change. C - has taught me how to look at the world through her eyes and find strength, love, and kindness in the smallest of things. I cant believe that 3 years ago that we were preparing for her to come into this world, I look forward to celebrating her life this week as we approach her birhtday on the 21st. We are having her party on the 20th which I cant wait to share pictures, we are going all out this year to celebrate her life, her triumphs and accomplishments. God truly broke the mold when he created my red headed princess, and I thank him everyday for blessing me to be her mom.

Another reason I'm excited this week is because I have also been asked to do another review for CSN store, now everyone in the blog world knows who CSN is. I was fortunate enough to host a review a few months back and was blessed to finally get the espresso machine that had been on my long list of WANTS, they have over 200 + stores, that sell everything from barstool, home decor, bedding, kitchen, kids toys, anything that you could ever imagine of wanting or needing CSN offers. I look forward to my upcoming review and consider an early 30th birthday gift and Christmas present. I love working with CSN Stores and cant wait to share my review with you all.


3rd Giveaway of Christmas

I have the wonderful opportunity to not only get to host a fabulous giveaway this week benefits to Sandra over at Foot Loose and Fancy Free. She has the most adorable patterns for your pretty little princess, but I have also had the opportunity to review her wonderful Pillow Case pattern with the underlay.  Sandra has been wonderful to work and with and I hope that everyone gets a chance to check out her many stores on Etsy. If you don't have a sewing machine never fear she also sells her creations finished. I hope you enjoy working with Sandra as much as I have.

On to the review, I had to decide whether or not to do the stylish pillowcase dress or the standard one and I have to say as much as I love the standard pillowcase dress pattern I loved the couture look of the stylish one, so with my little diva I had to whip up and outfit for thanksgiving. We are having friends down for the holiday so I decided to make C's friend Bella a matching dress, they are going to look so cute on thanksgiving.

The pattern is very informative and detailed, not only are there many pictures to follow but Sandra breaks down each option and then has an example picture of each option so if you are visual person you can you can see what the finished project will look like. The versatility of theses wonderful dresses makes them a wonderful compliment in any season in the fall and winter months you can compliment the dress with Sandra's underslip pattern that can be worn by itself or partnered with the dress. I also whipped up Sandra's  "Sew Fun" Skirt. It looks adorable over the UnderSlip .
