Here Comes the Bridal Party

Found this lovelies on Ebay last week. AND all for $11.99. I love these super finds! They are such a beautiful bridal party.

Going bridesmaid dress shopping with the girls today. I'm thinking green - same or different styles for them. It doesn't really matter to me. Whatever makes them comfortable.

I'll let you know what we pick...

Plastic Bag Crochet

Plastic Bag Crochet
Originally uploaded by Reyney
Long before Etsy, and long before I made jewelry I would crochet everyday, every moment, every time I possibly could!

I used to make bags out of grocery bags. I was addicted to making them. I would probably make a new bag every two days. I gave most of them away, and sold a few on Etsy.

Now I only make them for people who request them. They usually wind up waiting 6 months...LOL My latest is for a teacher I work with. She is giving it to her 11 year old niece for her birthday.

It came out so sweet. The gray bags are Pathmark bags. The white is a mix - mostly from Michael's, AC Moore and Pathmark. The green is a Barnes and Noble bag. The pink is a random bag I saved, because I knew I would need it someday. Approximately 50 bags went into the making of this bag.

This beautiful bag will not decompose for the next 300 years!

Sharing with you!

Pretty Plushies - Everyone Squeeze in the Photo

So, what happens when I get sick? I make the most plushies I have ever made.

I still feel like crap. I still want to sleep all day. But, for some reason my plushie crafting has been at an all time high.

Here's a pic of all in my collection right now. Some are for sale. Some have already sold. Prices range from about $6 to $12.

I should get sick more often, not!

Home Sick

I am home sick today. Now, I know I am the first person who cannnot wait for holidays, days off, etc, but I'm feeling really guilty that I called out sick this morning! I don't get it....

Even though I was up all night, coughing, sneezing and trying to get that tickle out of my ears, I still feel the need to be at work. The last time I looked at the clock it was 3, and then my alarm went off at 6! Oh boy was my head spinning.

Not to mention the achy body, conjestion in my head, sore throat, cold sore forming on my lip, ewww, blah, blah, blah, I'm missing work! I hate to miss work!

I've missed 4 days in the past 5 years - and I can name each and every one! I was sick, I had to go to a museum, Bill's graduation and I broke my finger! And now this!

But I keep telling myself it's best that I don't spread these germs to my little kiddies, even though, I'm sure, one of them sneezed in my face last week, and well, here I am!
