A very happy mail day!

Yesterday was a yucky day. Paid the bills, extreme morning sickness (all day,) cranky little ones. But then the mail came, and my day was transformed!

I received a fabulous package from my amazing partner, Troublet! We're in this swap over on Craftster, and this is what she made for me. . . .

A bottlecap pincushion in my favorite colors and theme! Lovely. . . and much too pretty for pins.

Oh, and there's so much more. . . .

Coming up

Some early risers. . . .

I just planted these on Saturday! Now, if only I could remember what was planted in this row! Cabbage, I think. Or maybe canteloupe.

Time will tell.

I'm probably crazy for attempting this.

I very rarely sew clothing. Sure, I've sewn the occasional pair of pajama pants, or a skirt or two, but that's about it. I was traumatized back in high school -- when I attempted to make a pair of UNITS pants, and ended up with MC Hammer pants. Disastrous.

However, I guess I'm going to have step out of my comfort zone. . . .

My sweet Monkey 6 will be receiving her First Communion in May, and she needs a dress. She wants this dress. . . .

Bears. Beets. Battlestar Galactica.

It's no secret that I'm a huge fan of The Office. (Office nerd is probably more accurate.) I recently participated in an Office swap over on Craftster, and thoroughly enjoyed crafting for it!

But first, my package from my sweet partner, madmommymia. . . .

Inspired by Booze Cruise. . . and I'll be wearing this badge to my zumba class!

My very own official Schrute Farms apron! (The beet is a pocket.)
