Things I love to eat, but feel guilty when I do (I rarely eat these anymore, unfortunately)

Chip'which- Lays Ruffles, Miracle Whip, softest whitest bread you can find

Tuna sandwich- Tuna, Miracle whip (mixed together), then slightly crushed Cheetos on white bread.  This is so good!!

Cake soup- Carrot cake with a wonderful (sour) cream cheese frosting, broken up in a bowl with whole milk... or if no one is watching cream.

Now my family enjoys....

My mother enjoys tortilla chips with margerine for dipping.
She also loves to make pan toast with a fried egg in it (eggy in a basket), then put canned mushrooms and plain yellow mustard on it. She loses me at the canned mushrooms.

My husband has taken to making scrambled eggs with the little bits of tortilla chips left over at the bottom of the bag added in just before the eggs set.

He also enjoys putting Tapitio (a hot sauce) in his cream of wheat.

I love this room, I love the color of blue you picked, but most of all, I LOVE the organization. You should be proud and possibly think of contracting out!
6  CLOTHING / Clothing for Curvaceous Craftsters: Completed Projects / Re: True Pinafore Skirt Dress on: July 21, 2008 11:13:43 AM
Thank you everybody for the nice comments. I wore the outfit to my cousin's rehearsal, and many people complimented me on it (she's also on craftster, so she told people I had made the skirt).       

I super love this outfit, other women at the dinner wore similar patterned dresses (black/white, mod patterns) so I felt awesomely trendy and pretty, something I rarely feel when around super skinny people.

I had a birthday last week, and I decided it was time to stop being afraid to try and sew my own clothes instead of just quilts and what not. I've been seeing all the pretty (and easy) pinafore skirts around lately. I dug out some fabric I had, and started with stopthefacade's tutorial (http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v374/ongir/Skirt.jpg)

and one with better lighting...

Things I changed:
1. Did not add straps.
2. Because I did not add straps, I made a sandwich of two pieces of cotton and interfacing on the waist part to help it stand up. After fiddling around with it, I believe I will go ahead and pin in on the blouse I'm wearing underneath.
3. I doubled my fabric for the skirt part, but made the 'hems' 2 inches apart, so it has the shorter skirt on top.
4. I didn't hem it at all. Hems intimidate / bore me, so instead I just used the fabric so the bottom hem would be the selvage edges of the fabric.
5. After having a hell of a time, I realized that 4 layers of cotton, interfacing all gathered together really goes easier when you use a quilting foot. I could have cut an hour off of the skirt had I realized that at the beginning.

I think I shall wear this outfit Friday to a rehearsal dinner for a wedding I'm in on Saturday.

I really like your work.  Don't feel too bad about the delay, my mother is still working on my birth announcement... I'll be 26 in July.

10  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Valentine's Day / LoveBOT conquers all (Box and Valentines...picture heavy) on: February 14, 2008 12:23:17 AM
OK, so I just started an internship Tuesday, and I was told that they have a Mandatory Valentines Exchange Wink.  We are doing little cards, and everyone must make their own box to receive their cards, if you don't, you get a plastic sack with your name written on it with a sharpie.

So tonight my husband and I worked on some robot lovin'.

My Valentines Box: LoveBOT

Isn't he cute? He's made out of a Ziploc bag box, some silver tissue paper, and some stickers/paper out of a wedding scrap pad I got on super sale at Target Tuesday evening.

Here are some close ups:

Left side, with my name

Right side, with his personal motto

Back side, showing creases!

Backside, like a Cabbage Patch, has his name on his butt.

Here he's opening up his compartment.  I based most of his design off of Bender from "Futurama," hence the swinging door (also, this way I can get my Valentines out!), antenna, and "bad boy attitude."

With my box completed, I need to work on what to give to my co-workers.  Last year I had found these awesome free Valentines you can print out from blissfully bitter. So cute! However, my printer sucks, so I cut out some cardstock, and drew them myself. 

Too cute, if I say so myself.

Here's the army on my couch.  They are stapled to little bags filled with Snickers, Sweettarts, et cetera

Happy Valentine's Day!
