Thanks to all of you who have faithfully stayed with me on my first year's journey. I appreciate each and every one of you, whether you are a "follower," "subscriber," or just "happened" up on my little piece of the web-o-sphere.
I have some awesome blog posts planned for 2010. Including one about my awesome Christmas present from the hubby (a Canon 20D DSLR camera), some sweet crafts that I've made (more memory boards, iPod/iPhone carrier, coasters, etc...), the upcoming renovation of our main bathroom, renovation/decoration of my craft room, and planning our daughter's summer trip back to New York City for more modeling and acting auditions. (Speaking of which...she was put on "hold" for a restaurant commercial on Christmas Eve. This means that she hasn't been cast yet, but that the casting director really liked her during her audition and is very interested in her. Keep your fingers crossed!) Plus many more interesting ideas and crafts.
I hope you all had a very Merry Christmas (or other Holiday that you celebrate) and that you have a Happy New Year!

My home desktop computer is still screwed up. We thought the hubby had fixed it, but no siree! So…I have to use my laptop. The laptop would be great, BUT it runs really slow AND I have NO patience! Oh well…at least I have a computer! I have an awesome Christmas present from the hubby to blog about, plus some sweet gifts from my bff’s, but until we get the desktop up and running, I won’t be able to post pics. Please stick with me. The computer has to come back around soon! If not, I’m going to have to break down and buy a new one. Either way…I’ll have a new computer!!! If I don’t get a chance to get back on here before Christmas, please have a Merry one!!!

I thought I’d post a couple pics of bows I’ve made using my favorite little tool:
This one is on my PB knock off wreath:
Then there’s the one at the top of my Christmas tree:
And then there’s the one on my friend’s memory board. (which she LOVED!) This one was made with regular satin ribbon, no wire.
I have the regular size Bowdabra and the Mini Bowdabra. I used the Mini to make the bow on the memory board and the regular size to make the other two bows. (Hubby bought these for me for Christmas last year! I’ll tell you about this year’s gift in another post…it’s AWESOME!!!)
Of course, I’m made other bows using these two lovely inventions. I just haven’t taken pics of them. I’ll try to post a tute on using it sometime.
If you want to pick one up for yourself, check out http://www.bowdabra.com/. It’s definitely worth the mulah!
Have a great night!

The chairs aren't completely done, but I just couldn't wait to use them.
I've been pretty busy on a few other projects. I'll post those in the next few days. Stay tuned!
