TGIF...

It is Friday, right!? I am never certain of the day! My mom and I are taking Owen to have his first professional portraits done today. Up until now I've done his pictures myself. In the garage or outside. But I decided I wanted to have some done in a studio. It should be an adventure!

Below is my latest completed project. It's a T-shirt for my best friend's daughter. Her birthday was the 8th and her party is tomorrow. Should be a little quieter than Owen's birthday party! She doesn't have any siblings or cousins!
I think Morgan took the camera to work today so I can't take a better picture of it right now. But the dark fabric is a chocolate brown with teal blue flowers and the middle is a cream with small leaves. The eyes are brown buttons and the beak is stitched in orange.

Here is my latest toy. We used one at the Donna Downey class I took and it was amazing! It punched through 8 sheets of cardstock like butter! And it sets eyelets and snaps the same way. I tried out the eyelet setter yesterday and it just smooshed it flat. No hammering! The only thing I dislike about it a bit is how wide the handles are. I have smaller hands so it's just a bit wide for a comfortable grasp. But I'll manage!
And this is a little album I made for Owen's birthday party. I took 1 picture from each month of his first year and put on the right side. On the left side I put pattern paper and a little journaling. I will post the finished album another day.
The base of the page are some coupons I got in the mail from Target. The backs were all solid colors and then the coupon was on the front. I just covered the coupon part with the picture and paper.And the 2P's challenge for today:

TWO Things About Me.

Two Names I Go by: Well, it's hard to get a nickname from Heather. But Morgan calls me Honey and my sister calls me Sissy.

Things I Want Very Badly At The Moment: Well, I need a bath so I'll put that and I'm a bit obsessed about getting a new DSLR camera.
Two pets I have: I only have 1 pet and he's more than enough. And I'm sure Maggie would say he's the size of TWO!
Two things I did last night: Worked at the mortgage office and worked on Ella's t-shirt
Two things I ate today: a banana and a little debbie snack cake (yes, I know it's only 9:30am!)
