Happy Birthday Sissy!

Hello my Lovelies!

I feel like I have abandoned you these last several weeks, my life has been turned upside down with work and if I had to remember to breathe I would have suffocated a long time ago!  Thank the good Lord that He automated the process for us!  So today, August 30th, 2012 is my sissy’s 26th birthday!!! I think the whole sibling rivalry thing is BS because even from childhood Erica and I have been each other’s biggest fans and proponents.

I like crafts! Big whoop, wanna fight about it?!

Hello My Lovelies!

No one could ever mistake me for an old Southern Belle, you can look at my picture and know that definition is far from the truth.  But I will admit that I like doing certain crafts… yes, I like crafts!  Big whoop, wanna fight about it?! ( Macie will laugh at this later)  I enjoy coloring and roaming around Michael’s, Hobby Lobby and Garden Ridge in search of my next project.  Growing up my mom always had my sister and I doing something artsy, from color or paint by number to latch hooking to eventually crocheting and cross stitching.  At any random time, my sister can be found crocheting a scarf or an afghan.  Me on the other hand, I never wanted to learn to crochet when my mom offered to teach me, cross stitching was my thing.  ( I have since asked my mom to teach me so that I can make baby blankets for friends)  I have made many cross stitching pieces and am currently working on one for my mom’s b’day.  However, it seems that I have chosen the largest piece I have tried to date and I am not completely sure I will get it done in a week and a half… HELP!!!

My mom and I love butterflies, so I chose this as part of her June 7th b’day present.

You will note that this piece is 11 x 11… I failed to read that part when I bought it, I was distracted by all the pretty colors

  

This is more than I bargained for!

After 2 hours of work

After an additional 1 1/2 hours… I will make it… barely!

There is a certain solace and peace that I find in doing crafts, the concentration and beauty that comes with every design.  After this… Tinkerbell!  Here’s to finding what calms your soul and brings you peace.

Blessings and Happiness

T. Nicole
