...a day in the life of Mel...

Mel's dad boought a camera...
Mel isn't sure she likes the camera...(It def doesn't take whats there...color wise)
Soo...when her Mom asked her if it takes any good pictures Mel honestly
stated that...It's not a Canon...but it'll do... :P
(After not having one for like a yr and having
to run and borrow one everytime I wanted to take a pic of something
I'll def take what I can get:P)

So valentines day eh....
How did you spend your day...
I spent my morning babysitting my awesome Abby...
The afternoon at school...Art was a rat race, but fun fun:D
We started our valentines project :)
The kids were psyched :)
I'm glad :)
I aim 2 please :D
Here's an example of one...
I spent the rest of my afternoon doing something that I have wanted to do the past three years and never took the time... Meet Watermelon Express :D
(Is it weird that I named a rug :D???) lol

It's not done....yet...Tomorrow :D
Need 2 cut of the access and finish of the raw edges...
I love how it turned out... My shoulders don't cause I sewed till after nine:D
They don't understand my... perseverance...my ambition... LOL...It's a tuff life...
It should've been one of those shadow and sun rugs...
But I'm not one for following rules...(that much)...I like doing my own thing...:D
So when no one was looking...I mixed all my pieces together :D...
I believe my Mom wanted to bop me over the head with a frying pan...
Alas she's to nice for that:P
Next time Mom....next time :P

...N just because

A valentines day card I made for one of my best friends
She thinks I don't have a mean bone in my body...(She's wrong but don't tell her I said that)
She's awesome...
She'd have to be to put up with me:P lol


Oh...and another project...A weekend project...
A new addition to my room :D

The cushion was UGLY
I reupholstered it...
I LOVE it!!!!
The wood is a dark dark red...
One of the leg pieces was cracked...I glued it...
So ignore the tape:D It'll be gone in a few days:P


Anyway I was invited to a V-day party...
SO I guess I better runnn:)
MUAH :D

Seh sei beautiful!

you have to have a couple different shades of one color and then theres a certain way you sew them together to form this pattern. I have it lying around here somewhere, I should find it:)
