Are you a Momprenuer? I was "accused" of being one the other day...I kinda like the title! I look at the title as a badge of honour. The badge of success and learning from failures to gain more experience. Have you ever heard that experience is what you get when you fail? My momprenuer status is going to stick! Maybe I'll get a tshirt made...I do alot of things and my retreat business has been my most successfull and the one that I am most proud of. I started to do it for others, with no profit at all, now I only charge enough to cover costs and I still am doing it for the ladies who come out, the ladies, who just like me deserve a break, deserve some time to do their own thing!

Are you a momprenuer, sure you manage a family, a home, a job and in some cases a hubby or lack thereof...but yes we are all momprenuers! Wear your badge proudly, i will wear mine for sure!

Cheers have a great weekend everyone!

to buy a new "toy" or not!

Well, I have been humming and hawing for weeks now, maybe even months...should I buy a long arm machine or not. A friend bought one and loves it. I could really use it for much more than just my quilts. I could start a mini business up.

The pro's and con's are endless. The cost is, well....expensive but the results are totally worth it.

Would you ? If you could buy the latest and greatest gadget for your craft would you?

I would also love a cricut (a little more manageable I know), but I am waiting!

Tell me what you think.

are you competitive? Maybe a little...?

I enjoy viewing other peoples scrapbook pages, their quilts, i love it inspires me, I never thought of entering anything into any type of competition until yesterday!

I entered a quilt I made a friends baby boy into a online quilt competition, now all my friends have been voting along and emailing that they voted and each email gets me more and more excited...not that I'll win, but that my friends all love the quilt so much.

I am knee deep in the Wizard of OZ fabrics right now. I decided a month or so ago that I would enter Fons & Porters competition and their theme is "oz". So I went through my stash, found some fabrics i bought during a trip to Las Vegas and the Christmas Goose Quilt Shop (love it there ladies) and brought home to these fabulous morsels are slowing going into my first "big competition". My dear sweet husband drew the design of the quilt (man he is good, if only i could get him to quilt?) and I've been slushing through the fabric to get the pieces just right and put together to reflect what he drew.

Have you ever entered a Quilt? It sure is nerve racking...perfection perfection, and then an opps...but what fun, it's kinda nice having a deadline, knowing it will be done, not just another UFO (unfinished object) scrapbooking has been on the wayside in the meantime, but hopefully next weekend I will get to play with friends at a crop!

Until later my sweetie peeps!

Is anybody out there

Ever think you're all alone, well take off the ipod and listen to all the sounds around you as you quilt/scrapbook. I usually put my headphones back on quickly, cause there is gonna be a kid in my house screaming sooner or later. The good news is, my hubby is so great to me, if I need "craft" time, I shut my door and he deals with the herd!

Sweet as pie! Someday, I'm gonna get that man to quilt. He's already trying to design stuff for me to make, so what's another step? Oh goodness, does that mean I'd have to share my stash with him, or does it mean he'll have his own for me to steal from?

Hope your week is going well!

My coughing, hacking, sore throat is almost fully repaired! yeah!
