i'd like to introduce you to.....

Saint Clare of Assisi the patron saint of Embroiderers and Television (she is also the patron saint of eye disease, but it's not as glamorous).

say a prayer to Saint Clare for your crafting flare!



I wish it looked like this outside

(cool how the cloud is shaped like a heart ...I swear I didn't alter it)
but it doesn't. It's going to rain all weekend :( no sun for it so much to ask for some sunshine?

Tonight I have to bake cake and cupcakes for the castle graduation order due Saturday afternoon. Fun times!

Craft Box

This weekend while thrifting I found a large metal "port-a-file" style box for $5 at the Goodwill. It's one of the largest ones I've ever I bought it. The only problem it was that horrible shade of industrial office tan.

So a quick stop to the michael' can of robins egg blue spray paint and a brown paint pen.....and vĂ³la cute craft box. Now all of my embroidery supplies are contained (and it matches the color of my walls)!

after a stressful week last week....working on this cake (4 tiered monster cake for my company's 25th birthday party)

it was nice to relax this weekend.

saturday morning, after sending dave off to his final, i went to my favorite haunts....michael's and the goodwill store. i was hunting for crafting supplies...mainly embroidery supplies....and vintage sheets and fun thrifted stuff to re purpose. there were so many treasures at goodwill....but i restrained myself to a vintage pillowcase (which will most likely end up in a quilt) and large metal file box...which i will paint and use for craft supplies.

i started embroidering on tea towel this weekend...something i haven't done since i was a kid. the embroidery pattern is from

go here if you are interested...jenny hart is a great embroidery artist. she makes awesome modern patterns....and based out of austin. i am using her "crazy kitchen" pattern.

here is my progress

tonight i have to complete one of two cakes i have this weekend.
