Drum roll please....

Photographic evidence that I have been crafty

Apron for a Christmas gift.

Finally finished Matea's quilt.

My $2 Dollar Tree Christmas card display.

Sprucing up the girls' room.

Planning a party. Bella's 6th birthday tea party. Bought this sweet little vintage table runner at a thrift store for $4 and then remembered I have a whole pile of vintage linens from my Grandmother.

Decorating the kitchen. Got a bright red basket for $.90 and a cute little tea pot for $.60 to go with my retro apple valance. I want some kind of vintage cutie (a gnome?) to go in the basket.

I still have many, many projects I want to work on but there's just not enough time in the day. And I spend way too much time watching tv but that's a whole other post.

The Beth Bag

Named for my friend Beth Clark.

Who isn't really "Clark" anymore but I don't seem to make the transition well from maiden to married name.

Beth who has lost 87 pounds.

Eighty-seven! An eight and then a seven. 80+7. Only thirteen pounds less than 100. I think she deserves a bag named after her, don't you?

Beth is fun and funny and amazingly inspirational. She's suddenly so confident and determined, everyone in our Bunco group was drawn to her story about her weight loss journey. I'm really in awe of her motivation and dedication.

*Don't mind the crappy pics, it's raining heavily and the sun is no where in sight. But I think this new bag design is so fabulous I couldn't wait for the sun to come back out to take pics.
