Mondays Mondays

Mondays are always dull and seem to never end. I wish I had pictures to show you; however, my camera is, for the third time) getting fixed by Best Buy! It's so annoying! Anyways, today I took cinnamon rolls into work and made a few people very happy! This is want you HAVE to try with leftover cinnamon rolls:

1. Put it in the microwave for about 20 seconds.

2. Top with ice cream! Almond Mocha Fudge is to die for!

Books Books Books

So when I said I had A LOT of books in the garage... I meant A LOT... Take a look. The line of books in the front acted as a barrier for my puppies. They sit in the garage with my while I sort through this mess!

I've been practicing sewing with Brother (I named my sewing machine Brother). We've been making a lot of pillow cases! My real brother, Michael, used to have a comforter with a houndstooth black and white print. I always thought it was so ugly, but he loved it. A little bit ago a saw Paula Prass' Houndstooth material and bought a bolt of it so I could make Michael something. I made him pillowcases! haha :] Simple, yet unique, I know he will be excited for them. I'm also making my boyfriend a pillow case out of this fabric. He chose it! How cute is he?

I've been practicing sewing a lot because soon MyFabFabrics is going to sell handmade goods such as bags and blankets. My roommate has agreed to help with the sewing. He's a sewing master and I'm a beginner. At first I will probably end up cutting and pinning while he sews... but we'll see.

Between 2 jobs, the fabrics, the books, and the puppies... I'm short on time. Boyfriend has the morning off so we're going to watch Grey's Anatomy for a little bit! yay!

Catch up Post

I know I've been delayed (story of my life...) Please check out the Fabric deals today here! I had a great week. Steven, my boyfriend, had a couple extra days off work. It was nice to spend some extra time with him. We hosted a puppy play date, went to Disneyland, ate at my favorite restaurant, Spoon House, and carved pumpkins! Steven used to have a book business. He sold used books on Amazon and was seeing some decent cash flow. He's showing me how to work the book system and our garage is full of books! I mean... hundreds, possibly thousands, of books! I need to get ahead with cash before this holiday season!

And by the way....
