Bubble Chandelier

I just adore the look of these "new" Bubble Chandeliers! They're all over the internet and HGTV programs!
MEA - Sausalito Residence eclectic dining room
I'm saving this idea for my "Dream House"!
After doing some internet surfing I was able to find both pricey and less pricey options.
Premiere Luminaire had similar styles that ranged from $380-$3,400. Other sites had them up to $12,000!!!
Then I found this great DIY link!
Definitely drool worthy!!!

Welcome Simon!

One of my colleagues was blessed with a new addition to their family this past Christmas Eve!
I decided to do some internet searching to see if there was a pattern out there to make another bag similar to the leopard bag I made and lo and behold I found one on Little Lizard King. The pattern was similar to the one I whipped up on my own, but hers only had the one handle and I really like that so I used it on this bag. I also chose to line this one with HeatnBond Vinyl to make it leak proof! I bought several rolls of this when it was on clearance at JoAnn's a while back. Now I've got the perfect use for it! I see many more bags in my future!
The applique patterns for the burp and bib are from Planet Applique.
The Elephant is holding a minky style blanket that I embroidered with his name and date of birth.

Bus Driver T-Shirt

Isn't this a funny saying? I couldn't resist making this for my sister who starts her debut as a school bus driver today!

Leopard Bag

I thought it was time to post something besides embroidery projects! But don't worry they'll be back tomorrow! :)
I made this little bag out of two fat quarters and some ribbon. Nothing fancy, just a little gift bag to fill with goodies. The hardest part was the box pleat corners and if you've made them you know they are super simple! Of course I could always add a monogram or something before I give the gift. ;)
