What's New?!

This past weekend was a weekend of firsts for sure.

1)  I started and finished a sewing project by Judi Andersen (Vintage Banner)
2) I got new glasses
3) I started filming for ICE Resin Creative Team...getting ready for my first due dates.
4) I made rosettes using the sewing machine instead of a hot glue gun

...after years and years of living in fear of the sewing machine, I've been steadily conquering my demons.  I initially became fearful, after my instructor at Art Academy in SF scolded me for ruining my project.  Mind you they teach you how to sew on an industrial machine (yikes).  But with the support of my lovely friends, I'm loving it!  I even started and finished my second banner this afternoon (all by myself!),  just so I could have a cute banner for the Fall hanging on my mantel. Crazy huh!?!  Judi Andersen's kit was packed with all sorts of goodness.  If you've not yet taken any classes from her, you should, she typically teaches at Scrapbook Island.  I've taken one class and done the kit listed above, and they're just fabulous.

Ok, the glasses...yah, been having migraines, light sensitivity...a slew of lovely symptoms.  But got the glasses, they're really cute, but I'm struggling to get used to when I need them.  Of course I talked to my doctor, but this is still a different experience all together.  So, I cut off all my hair a few months ago, got glasses...maybe I should start to dye the hair too...and I'll have a new all together different look:P

Anywho, that's my day/weekend in a nut shell.  Hope you're having a fabulous day!


  1. You are too cute in your glasses! Love you! It was a big Weekend!

  2. Cute glasses! How cute Anton wrote on here. Well I didn't know you had a blog, I will have to read back some. So about sewing, I've been obsessed thinking about sewing. I don't have a working sewing machine but keep thinking of all these things I want to make! (baby sling, curtains, etc) so cool you made the banner! (jennifer C)

    1. Thanks Jen! You should totally get a sewing machine, I could see you making a whole line of fab organic material baby gear!!! And curtains are always a huge cost savings!

  3. Dear Lexi- Love your window banner. You've inspired me to whip one up for the indie door of my laundry room. The glasses ARE cute, and SOOO helpful. Aging brings insight and we can then lose the old stories that we made up about ourselves. Coloring hair? How about a deep purple!

    Love you, Marya

  4. Helllooooo Marya! I miss you!!!! Thank you so much for checking out the blog & for your note. I had so much fun making this banner, and I think I'll have to make one for every season now:P

    Regarding the glasses & hair. The glasses I was sent are the wrong Rx, which explains why they're not helping my headaches, lol. And the hair...I'm this close to doing something verrrry funky, color hold the phone. Lol. Would love to see you dear friend:)))
