A Different Creating Project


Wow, feels like forever since I posted!! Not by choice, mind you.....lol. I had 2, yes count them, 2 computers crash on me within a month!!! The first to go was my desktop. That one was old, so it really wasn't too much of a surprise, just irritating. Then, I had a laptop, that my hubby was letting me use and it up and died:(. I kind of blame my hubby on that one, as he made me download Quicken Books onto the laptop and a week after that, it was dead. Needless to say, I was NOT a happy camper...lol. But my BIL came to my rescue and gave me a key to their house so I could go in while they were at work and check my email.

Anyway, onto something more fun. My sister and I have started a new little adventure. We are making "Mother and Daughter" along with "Daddy and Me" matching aprons to sale. I pick out the fabric combo. and purchase it and she takes the time to sew them. We then send them to a consignment store for sale. The first set we sent, sold within the first 5 days the store was open!!!

The apron that sold was a "shabby chic" look with pastels. Come to find out, the HUSBAND of the lady that bought them wears it to BBQ/cook. I would give ANYTHING to see a picture of that one.....lol.

This apron set is my favorite so far. The picture does not do the set justice at all:(. It is a rich yellow golden color and reminds me of Fall. I wanted to find material that could be warn anytime, but had that "fall feel" to it. Hopefully I succeeded and it will fly off the hanger in the store:).

Tammy it hasn't been forever !

Wow some changes there, the new blog look is awesome, I adore the colours you have chosen.

And what about those aprons. I'm with you, I think seeing the man wearing one at the BBQ would be a sight! Best of luck with it. People like different, unique and individual so you might be onto something there.
