ok finally! whew.... I have had another day of running around and shopping with my Auntie. I got a few more Christmas presents and got the girls a new home!
Too much information alert!!......................................
I have never been "fitted" before!! I was somewhat surprised to find out that I am not a D...I am not even a DD ..uh hem..... I am an E....yup an E 36 like oh.my.gosh. so I bought the girls 2 new homes for just under $200!!! the most I have ever spent on a bra before was like $20 and I really liked the fields $5 specials... totally all the wrong sizes and not giving me the support I need and I have had visions of me looking like my maternal grandmother with rocks in the end of VERY stretched out tube socks! the girls' new homes should ensure that they stay put for many a year to come. Actually the lady told me they are in pretty good shape considering I have nursed 4 babies totaling 56 months = over 4 years!!! oh.my.gosh. They are actually pretty too and not like the ones I used to laugh at and put my entire face in when I was a little girl in Kmart! yah these are actually pretty and make me stand taller. My Auntie said she was amazed at how much taller I stood in them and they made me look like I instantly lost 10 pounds! amazing what happens when the girls "sit" where they are supposed too! hahaha!
anyways we had a lot of fun together and got lots accomplished and both came home totally wiped out! ate some dinner and drank a glass of wine and are now relaxing!
so the following are some pictures of the purses that I have made. I have more than this, this is just a sample but I have more to do and the craft fair is Dec 3rd so I am starting to feel like I am running out of time!!! I really like how they turned out. I hope they are well liked. It is fun for me creating stuff and holding material and seeing what it will become. I really don't like patterns and love seeing something being finished!! something you know that doesn't happen around a house full of children.... hopefully you can get a good idea what they look like, it is dark so I had to take them under the brightest light I have.
PS ~ we have almost a foot of snow up here! it has been snowing for over 24 hours straight! the roads are slippery and we have had some white out conditions.....BUT.... I still prefer this over the rain the Coast is getting :)
