Shawnee's Secret Santa

I am a young creative minded mother of boy/girl twins. When we decided to start a family, twins were never in the mix. They have proven to be a blessing and joy and it is a wonder to watch them grow and take in the world around them. I currently work outside the home full-time and find that working along with raising an active (read= exhausting)little family of 6 (can't forget the doggies)can be a bit of a challenge. I decided to purchase a sewing machine to give my creative side a much needed boost. Over the past 6 months I have been teaching myself to sew through my own trial and error and reading of blogs and books. It seems that I have a knack for this sewing thing as I have taken to it like a fish to water. I look forward to sharing with you a little on my life and crafting projects as things take shape!

Drumroll please......

So as I have mentioned I entered into my first swap as noted by my lovely and prominent tag above. Well I am pleased to say that I finished and mailed out my package today! I can't wait until my partner opens it up. My only hope is that she loves it as much as I do. It's a little "out of the box" when it comes to a Valentine's Apron. The words evoke thoughts of pink, red, black, white. This blasts that out of teh park and that's partially why I love it. When I saw this fabric I had to have it. I tell you it was very hard giving this baby up. It just makes me happy and smile just looking at it. I really think I'll be ordering more of this fabric and making a repeat as I love it so much I feel it must be a part of my own collection.
(pay no attention to the awful model. She does no justice to the apron!)

  1. Hi Marlene! I got my apron and I love, love, love it!!! I can't stop staring at it. It's just so me! And the extras ... let's see, my favorite valentine's candy, lip gloss (love the minty taste), tissues (really needed those for my purse) and my cookie cutter. It was all so perfect! I've already posted my apron to my blog and, for your viewing pleasure, an episode of Love American Style, which happens to have been one of my favorite shows! You rocked this swap. Thank you so much. I am a very lucky lady indeed.
