The Power of Positive Thinking - An Experiment

I want something. I want it really bad. For so many really good reasons. And I've been struggling. Because it would be such an unlikely and miraculous thing for it to happen. So I'm afraid to want it. I want to cower in "oh well, who cares" land, where, should this thing not happen, I won't be let down.

But I do believe in the power of positive thinking. So I'm trying to be brave and think positively and pour all the positive energy I have into the work I am doing to try and make the "Thing" happen.

I thought maybe you'd help me?

These pictures sort of summarize the dream for me. I'd tell you all about it, I'm not trying to be cryptic, but they probably explain themselves and I just don't yet have it in me to take my positive thinking to pen...or...whatever these words are made out of...pixels I guess.

Anyway, gaze on them, will ya? And think some positive thoughts for me.

Much positive thinking and coming true of dreams to you and yours!

More Stuff I Made

So I continue to have no time on my hands. It's New Years Day and my boys are all outside playing in the big fat snowflakes that are falling down....and I really want to join them. But I also wanted to wish all of you who may still read this a very Happy New Year and post a few other things I made, because, frankly, nobody around here is much impressed!

OK, totally kidding. I didn't make that one. But thrifted it! For THREE DOLLARS! I know, right! 

 But I did sew this robe (sorry no time to edit and rotate). Using my first ever bought pattern. I'm so proud. And the little guy loves it. And it was good timing because Joann's McCalls patterns went on sale for $.99. I bought 8 and my receipt said I saved $129 - sweet.

And then there was this ball. With that Alexander Henry fabric I love, and some bee-inspired fabric that was on sale at Joanns too. I had big plans to make a big version of this ball, but could not BELIEVE the amount of stuffing just this little guy took! I scrapped the big ball idea. Oh, and a great note I found on my search for fabric ball tutorials...cut the fabric on the bias and you don't end up with pumpkiny shaped balls. 

And that's all I got for now. I'm gonna make some placemat aprons (courtesy of this tutorial over at MADE) for my best friends little girl whom I've decided will be the recipient of all things girly that I just cannot resist making. 

Much love to you and yours and best wishes for the new year!!
