I got some things done!

Last week I said that I was having craft hour from 9p-10p everyday.

Well I haven't done it everyday. But I've done it most days and I got a few things done!

I got two gifts completed.


I got BJ's apron done as a barter for the lovely anniversary cake he made me.


He wanted something real simple since he gets super messy when he bakes. And he wanted to be able to hang it up. No pockets either. So I took some canvas I had and did a long black binding strap so he could tie it in the front. I did black stitching for the trim and I screenprinted a dirty laundry cupcake.


He loved it!

I also reconstructed a t-shirt for a friend.


She wanted her boyfriend's old t-shirt reconstructed. I told her I'd do it for her birthday, which was in July. It took her forever to give it to me and it took me forever to make it. So she was totally surprised when I gave it to her this morning. She forgot all about it!

I'm working on a reconstructed t-shirt DIY tutorial. So look for it!

And... I made some chocolate covered pretzels for a work event today.

My husband said they look like they came out of a confectionary store! Hee-hee!!!

Now I MUST start on two aprons that I should of been done in July/August. And BonBon needs some fresh cupcake bath fizzies. I'm still waiting on my new packaging samples so I can decide on exactly what I want to do. Oh, well. They'll just be in the old packaging for now. I'll let you know when they hit the store.

Let's see what I get accomplished this week!

new MOO card packaging

I got my mini MOO cards last night and they came in some COOL new packaging!


The boxes are no longer plastic. It's like a treated heavy duty white paper with a smooth finish.

I just LOVE the color insides that match the labeling on the outside.


And LOOK! You get two little index tabs to keep your cards and others cards separate. SWEET!


Cool MOO! You rock!!!

#8 Project Runway (PRW)

Now they kick off Louise from PRW. She should of left instead of Ramon on episode #6. They gave her one more chance and now they decide to give her the boot?!? What ev.

I'm keeping the same fafarazzi.com team. Even though Christopher kinda messed up last week he's still my #1 pick! I have 25 points total points and I'm in 1740th place. If I have the top scoring team for tonight I'll win a custom tee created by a season 6 designer!

no work in progress

Hmmm... once again another week has gone by and I haven't created anything. My spare time has been spent working on fine tuning my dirty laundry business.

But I've come up with a MASTER PLAN for me to get some sewing done since I have a TON of apron orders I need to complete. So this is it:
Between 9p and 10p I HAVE to either cut some fabric, sew or press bath fizzies. I can't get online and do research, look at my Google Reader, Tweet, Facebook, Tumblr or anything else like that. And no matter how tired I am I can at least get my fabric and sit in front of the TV and cut away.

Let's see how that works for me!!!

In other news... I ordered some new scents for fall/winter cupcake bath fizzies. White tea ginger and lychee red tea. Ohhh! I'm also bringing back peppermint, ginger orange AND winter grapefruit. Also, I'm getting some new packaging for my cupcake bath fizzies! It's gonna be SO CUTE. Watch out 'cause the cupcake bath fizzies will be available on Etsy soon.

Holla!!!
