Craft Party @ familyoftwo place!

My friend, S is have a crafting party. Well it was not her intention to have a crafting party it sort of happen when we found out she won a Cricut on ebay.

In her excitement she explained the great deal she was able to get on the price and the additional cartridges. She has been tracking the location as it travels its way closer and closer to PA. Expected arrival Monday.

When she mention on her blog about making magnetic paper dolls for her niece. I thought great I want to do that also. And then I found out her sister was coming to her house on Monday Jan 19, 2009 which happens to be a day off for us I decided that I was coming over as well.

Then S was telling W about the Cricut and I discovered that she wanted to get one and has just been waiting for the right time to get it. So when S explain how I just invited myself over and everything is turning into a crafting party. W just smiled and said " Well I don't invite myself to people's houses I wait for an invite." Then she crossed her legs and waited. S then invited her, like she had a choice!

So the crafting party is on Jan 19, 2009 at S's new apartment. We all are bringing over all our scrapbook papers and great ideals. Drinks , Snacks , Pizza and a Salad and its a crafting party. S is the host and the guests will be A, S's sister, W, and Me. I am sure that since it is a week away we can probably add 2 more people to the list if that is okay with S. This also gives me enough time the think of some snack to make and bring over. I am so excited.

When she told me that someone used the Cricut to make appliques, how? She used Heat and Bond on the back of the fabric and left the paper backing on it and then use the Cricut to cut the shapes out of fabric! So I have 1 week to prep some fabric for appliques as well. They will be embellishments on my crazy quilt.

I have to make sure the camera is ready and with everyone permission I will post pictures!

Since J, S's husband has to work that day his only request is that the craft party should be over by the time he gets home from work.

S Sew Together Session  May 27, 28!
It's great when you are with friends of like mind who love the same things you do.  Well this weekend time to capitalize on that idea.
Time to Sew Together!!
I sent out the invites actually it was a series of text and phone calls and created a buzz for myself that is very uplifting!  I am so excited. 
The way I have envision this;  everyone will come over about 6 to 7 people and bring what ever project they are working on and sew in the same room together.  I just love this idea!   
JN is going to make a apron for her make up job.  She was asked to do the make for the  brothers who will be on screen at our Regional Convention!  I am so happy for her.   AA will be making curtains she is getting things ready  for her redecorating month. She said for us not to look for her in June because that is the time she set aside to redecorate her house and curtains are a big part of it.

The Sewing Machine were in place and supplies are available just waiting for the people to arrive. 

I am very happy to have ventured out of my comfort zone it was very empowering to accomplish this!

Some who are learning were happy and frustrated.  Lining the top of the dress can be a challenge but she conquered it!

Life in a Scheduling Room

It has been some time since I felt it necessary to say anything about my job.  However this is something that i need to address at this time.  My work associates range in ages and this diversity helps our department funtion in an ackward yet somewhat effective way.  One coworker who is very verbal about everything that goes wrong.  You know when she is not well because she is quiet and there are times when she is very focus on what she is doing and if that concentration is broken so is her silence.  For the most part this does not bother me except when she takes me out of my zone and then my work rhythm is interrupted.   I am sure i am guilty of doing the same to her i think everyone does.  Then there is next coworker a beautiful young lady that gives the impression of being younger than she actually is and so I have a tendency to feel like  need  to protect her.  That is something I had to stop doing it was not needed and i hope I did not offend her.  Her method working is not as pr…
