My SUV ran me over

So I park the car after going to a meeting tonite. Mind you my driveway is completely shoveled and although on an incline, the car parked fine. I put the e-brake on. Go inside. Put Jas to sleep. Gather up the trash for trash day tomorrow. Go drag the bag of trash outside. (so its been like 20 mins).
I turn around after putting the trash at the end of the drive and what to my wondering eyes see--- why yes, its a suburban barrelling down on me. I jump to the side and land in the snow. Barely escaping his 1/2 ton tow. Realizing the car is heading down to the house... i jump to my feet and race to pop the door open and hit the brake.
It didn't hit anything (thank you Lord). I pulled it to the curb thinking that didn't we just pay $1500 for a new E-brake job? There wasn't too much ice on my driveway as I had scraped pretty well. I just can't believe that an e-brake on the rear would not hold and keep my car from baralling towards me and the neighbors house.

Missing him

Just in a funk. Missing my hubby. Haven't heard from him in a while. Won't hear from him til after 11/21. I hate it when they go in the "box" and simulate what it is like in war.

It doesn't help that my daughter is too iritable . I need a break.

My booties

Okay I tried to make some booties. They don't fit Jasmine but they turned out great. I tried enlarging the pattern and making them in cloth- but it didn't work.

Here are the cloth bottom shoes and the Blue Suede Shoes.

I was tagged!

THE RULES:*** Link to your tagger and list these rules on your blog.*** Share 7 facts about yourself on your blog, some random, some weird.*** Tag 7 people at the end of your post by leaving their name as well as links to their blog.*** Let them know they have been tagged by leaving a comment on their blog.

1. I have died. Yup, I died when I was two. I had a very high fever and was being babysat by my MomMom (grandma). Apparently the fever spiked and she said I wasn't breathing. The ambulance came and I had not been breathing for a while. They shocked me. I came back to life and was hospitalized. I have scar tissue in my brain and heart (and prolly other organs) BUT I am here today! No, I can't recall seeing the afterlife or tunnel or GOD.

2. I have epilepsy, have had it since I was two. See #1 for why.

3. I eat a Little Debbie Swiss cake roll in layers. As I do with Candy Corn and those Nutter Butter bars.

4. I am allergic to eggs but love to eat them despite the allergy.

5. I chopped straight thru my thumb before. Had to be stitched on . DIdn't go through the bone though.

6. I have jumped off a balcony and lived- Just shattered my arms and had bones sticking out but I lived. I was playing tag at this house on a hill. The balcony/patio was safe. My cousin started counting down the time I was allowed on base. He also blocked the entrance/exit. So I jumped. I landed on my arms and rolled all the way 100 yards down this huge hill and slammed up against a tree. But I lived. If you saw the hill you would be shocked.

7. My hubby and I met online through the personals.

New Project in the works

So my baby needs new shoes. She is a porker and continues to grow. Her current Roobeez just aren't cutting it.

So instead of buying her a $30 pair of shoes to which she will grow like a weed out of ... I figure I sew right? Let me try to find a tutorial on baby shoes. So here is the tutorial I plan on working tonite while Jasmine sleeps.

Wish me luck!

Jasmine's newest accessory

So I bought this from another Cafemom Etsy-er. We shared a booth at the craft fair together. Her shop is called Bows for Baby

Doesn't Jasmine look fabulous in this new accessory? Jasmine doesn't have much hair so here is a great solution. First bows!


So in addition to the awesome craft fair! I had my first sale on Etsy. I sold a nap mat! I hope the person loves it and adds to my feedback quota. I hope this is the beginning of the sales fairy coming to visit my store!

On a frustrating note, my daughter is still very sick and coughing up a storm. I hope she gets better. We got snow today-- so I hope to go out and play in it :)

Craft Fair yesterday

So I did a craft fair yesterday and unvieled some of my new items. The fair was decently attended and I made a profit. Unfortunatly they had our booth right in front of the Santa Claus station- so the parents that would have made it to our booth got a bit destracted by having photos with Santa.

I just unvieled my new products:

Here is a diaper stacker. Very good for hiding diapers in the livingroom. I will be putting no slip feet on the bottom of them to make sure they don't slid off the shelf when you pull a diaper out. I made 5 of them intially with all different patterns. I am gonna sell them for $30. Let me know whatcha think!

My nap mats are lined with bamboo fabric and have an attached pillow. They convienently roll up and are being sold for $45.00/each. I have 4 to choose from:
