Disney outfit pics

Thursday, November 29th, 2007

Here’s the latest Disney outfits I was working on. I might add black rick-rack to the hem of these pants to give them a more finished look. Plus, rick-rack is a Disney-boutique staple, lol.

I shared the shirt of this one but here it is with the matching pants. I did an applique for the Mickey […]

carried away

Wednesday, November 28th, 2007

The park was kind of a bust. There was not a single bench anywhere near the play area so I had to sit on undeven logs. The wind is pretty fierce here today which freaks Daisy out because of all the flying things. To top it off, there was mass tree trimming complete with chain […]

the fog has cleared

Wednesday, November 28th, 2007

Man, I didn’t realize how exhausted I was until this morning when I awoke with a clear head. The events of last night, mundane as they were, seem very surreal as if they didn’t happen. I know everything we did, but apparently I was rather out of it. I did get to bed early and […]

run down

Tuesday, November 27th, 2007

I must be running some really mild virus. I’m slightly stuffy, my ears, neck and shoulders are achy, and I have zero energy. It’s laundry day so the no energy thing is kind of a problem. I finished Tabitha’s snowflake outfit a few days ago and love how it turned out. I’ll take pics tomorrow […]

Tabitha is at my inlaws’ helping my MIL put out all her Christmas decorations and Daisy and Chris are both napping so it’s like I’m all alone Right now I’m finishing up Tabitha’s skirt. It’s done except for sewing the waist band and then inserting the elastic. I don’t really want to run […]

long day

Friday, November 23rd, 2007

I was one of the crazies up at 4:30 this morning to go shopping LOL But I went just to Gymboree to pick up gingerbread PJs for the girls for Christmas Eve. I was back home in my bed by 5:17am. Unfortunately when I wake and then go back to sleep in the morning I […]

Now that’s how you do Thanksgiving

Thursday, November 22nd, 2007

Today we had the three F’s- Food, Family, and Fun. Good times today. The kids had the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade on the tv, I baked two pies (pecan and pumpkin), Chris and I set out appetizers of crackers, dip, cheese, and deviled eggs, and we all spent a nice morning just being together. Around […]

never did find the penguin

Wednesday, November 21st, 2007

We decided to head to the mall this morning and do lessons in the afternoon. My sole reason for going was so Daisy could play in the play area since that’s something she enjoys these days. Tabitha asked me if we could buy the Webkinz penguin of lil’ penguin. I told her we could look […]

when rock meets hillbilly

Wednesday, November 21st, 2007

Last night I was among a sea of regtangle glasses, greased hair, and shirts with the sleeves ripped off. That’s right, it was time for a Social Distortion concert! I had been looking forward to this since July, when I bought the tickets. Since that time I’ve been to two concerts (Crowded House and Hannah […]

nothing going on

Saturday, November 17th, 2007

Not the most exciting day here in the Anc Fam. We went to the mall this morning since a temporary Disney outlet opened yesterday. I actually found something, which is kind of rare. They had a Sleeping Beauty dress that will fit an American Girl doll so I bought it on the sly for Tabitha […]

back at the sewing machine

Friday, November 16th, 2007

I really need to get moving on sewing but haven’t felt like doing anything. Last weekend I started a jeans project but then both Daisy and I had a cold and I just didn’t feel like working on it. Sadly, Tabitha caught our cold and she was down for the count today, but the bright […]

out with the old, already

Friday, November 16th, 2007

2007 needs to go away. I’m tired of all the bad stuff and need it to be a new year. This year we’ve had financial problems, parenting problems, car problems, house problems, and I’ve had personal problems. Usually the good stuff outweighs the inevitable bad stuff that happens in life. But this year feels like […]

I love LA

Tuesday, November 13th, 2007

You know what I love about living in LA? I can buy tickets to a yellow carpet reshowing of The Wizard of Oz featuring a Q&A with the 7 remaining munchkins. The email also let me know about the upcoming “Munchkin Star Ceremony” on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
This is why Angelenos have […]

Halloween pictures

Sunday, November 11th, 2007

I put up the pictures from all our Halloween related activities last month. The tulle skirts the girls are wearing were sewn by me, Daisy’s shirt was bought since I found a perfect match, and I did the spider web on Tabitha’s shirt with sparkle puffy paint and white crystals with a red crystal in […]

going on a box hunt

Saturday, November 10th, 2007

The morning was fine with a crispness in the air. While Chris and Tabitha were at tennis, Daisy and I both decided we wanted to go somewhere today. But where? was the question. Once Chris and Tabi were home we hopped in the car and I took us all to Krispy Kreme as that seemed […]

Visual and Performing Arts

Friday, November 9th, 2007

We started Tabitha’s art program two weeks ago. The program is designed to be used one day a month (a lesson takes a few hours), but lesson one was only a preview and didn’t really sate her appetite for art. So Tuesday we did lesson two which was all about Vincent van Gogh. One of […]

never caught up

Monday, November 5th, 2007

When last I left you, fearless reader, my car had been given a grim diagnosis but was thankfully expected to fully recover. It spent a week in ICU at the mechanic’s and was returned to me yesterday not only purring like the proverbial kitten, but sparkling due to the wash the mechanic took it to. […]
