Some projects and crafts!!!! Yay!!!!

Soooo... it has been a while since I have posted with pictures and projects...  It was crazy that when I put my computer some where else I hardly did anything with it....  I didn't like that so I put it back in front of my couch and now I have been back in the blogging world where I belong... sooo anyway... I received my Mome Rath in the mail today!!!  Yay!!!  I won him in a drawing from Missie she is the writer for the blog... Crafting with Cat Hair!!!  She is great!!!  I love my little guy!!!

Isn't he sooo cute I have named him MoMo and now he is going to be my model for all things craft!!!! 

I am in the middle of a couple projects!!!  So... with out further adieu in his first modeling debut....   HERE IS MOMO THE MOME RATH!!!!!!!

Here he is sporting an awesome hanging quilt I am making for my daughter!!!!  The idea for this came from Sophie at Free Patterns from Sophie Junction!!!  It was an awesome Idea for a disappearing 9 patch!!!  I am thinking of doing this into a blanket...but I think instead of using the Care Bear fabric I will look at using Sew Cherry!!!  From Lori at Bee in my Bonnet!!!  I just LOVE this Sew Cherry... I think it is something that when she gets older she would still want to use because it wont look so childish...

Then... here is MoMo again modeling my cute granny squares for a baby blanket I am making for my friends niece... she asked if I would make it since she has had the yarn for over a year and still hasn't done anything with it... lol... I had to laugh and of course I said yes...

Here is the mother's day card I made for my husbands grandma... and I forgot to take a picture of the one I made for his mom...  it was a shape card... it was in the shape of a dolphin!

Then here is the surprise I got on Mother's Day!!!!  I have never ever gotten flowers before on mother's day... and my husband sent me some ... they were from proflowers and they are beautiful... they came like this all closed up....  and I got to slowly watch them open to this....



Aren't they beautiful!!!  I have watched them since mother's day!!!  that has been about a week and a half now... I have never had flowers that lasted that long!!!!  And here is where the petals will end up when they are finished wilting...

In this with all the flowers I have ever gotten.... I take the petals and I put them in here... it looks so cute!!  Those ribbons came with all the flowers too!!



And here is some extra cuteness!!

Some great news!!

Hey everyone... sorry that I really haven't been on... we have had a hectic past week here in my household... My husband just graduated from college with high honors.... and just a week before that he had an interview at Dow Chemical... and this week he was offered the job!!!  It is a career now for him.... and last Monday I started working again... only to quit on that Wednesday because my husband was hired and it doesn't require me to work at all!!!!!   And now I can follow my life long dream and that is to be a stay at home mom to my beautiful children!  I always said when I was younger how I just wanted to be a mom and stay at home and take care of my babies.... but I was always told that I would never be able to do that... well... soo... I tried to figure out what I wanted to do with my life then... I said Veterinarian, chef, nurse, doctor... and tons of others... I went to school and got my Criminal Justice degree... and then worked on my Psychology degree.... and I still didn't know what I wanted to do with them... I was just all over.

And now I get to have my true dream fulfilled... this is great!!!!!  I wish you all the best of luck... I will be posting sometime in the very near future because I am currently working on a blanket for one of my friend's niece...  And I also am making another pair of socks!!!!
