What have I been up to? Where have I gone? (And more importantly that ISN"T ... Nolan... is it?!
Well, I've been working hard on some things for the Love Without Boundaries Art Auction that will be going live later in April. YOU TOO can donate items for this auction by April 1st. Go to LWB wesite to find out more. AND ALSO check out the art auction starting April 22th through 27th to place a bid on some wonderful items that truly will impact the life of a child now and for eternity. The proceeds from this auction provide life saving heart surgeries for orphaned children which not only repairs their little sweet hearts for this life but also makes them more eligible for adoption ... hopefully into a Christian home that will give them the keys to the next eternal life. (Doesn't that just give you goosebumps?!) Oh yes ... and well, yes that IS Nolan in the photo. Times are tough in our household of boys and the little bugger happily became my fit model. (Hilariously he immediately squatted down to check out the openness of the skirt bottom and got QUITE a chuckle thinking that mom had forgotten to do up his pants ... he quickly ran off thinking he had something up on mom.)
So ... because I have fallen in love with these twirly skirts (and they would look ridiculously NOT cute on me and I'm the only girl under this roof) I've sewn up a couple for some twirly girls somewhere. One is a 2T size and another is a fuller-more ruffly version (for max twirl) that is a 4T size.) Nolan humored me for a brief second (obviously he did not stand too still for very long as all of these shots are a little blurry.) The material has little ladybugs and hearts on one fabric, a gorgeous rich red on another and a black fabric with Kanji (the Chinese characters that are used in the modern Japanese logographic writing system) on another. Oh yes and a sassy stripe too. Let me know what you think as I'm not getting too much positive feedback from my boys. (I'm sure it's mostly out of fear that I'll ask them to model next!) Hopefully I'll get some better photos for the auction along with what else I have been sewing up. And of course I will be posting about this again here. Thanks for humoring me. It was really fun to work on these! Next on my sewing table however better be a Scooby Doo blanket and pillowcase in a more boy like fashion for one of my Scooby Doo fans. (Forgive me for putting you through this Nolan) Here is the More Ruffled 4T style sans model:
I'm a freelance graphic designer and an artist ... but my current professional title is M.O.M. I am blessed daily by being a wife to an incredible man and a mom to three wonderful boys. I love to sew and would love to create something special for you.
