YES! You are the right page! I just have a new name! :) After realizing that I do more than just scrapbooking, I've decided to change the name and will be changing the look.. I'd do a whole new blog but I'd hate to have to start all over.
Here you will find scrapbooking ideas. There's a ton of older posts that used the Cricut, but lately I haven't been using it much and well, my sewing machine is gaining more miles by the day.

Poodle Skirt!

Been playing around with the sewing  machine again. 
Actually.. this was by request of Sarah.  Each year in February, her class (well, the elementary) goes to the Surf Ballroom  and tours the Museum.   The Surf was the location of the last performances by Buddy Holly, Richie Valens and the Big Bopper.  On January 3, 1959, they were on the Winter Dance Party Tour and their plane crashed just five miles out of our town of Clear Lake, IA while they were en route to Moorhead, MN.   There is more on the story via Wikipedia. 

Anyways, Sarah wanted a poodle skirt last year when they went, just that we didn't have the money for one at the time.  She asked again this year and after doing all those quilts, you'd think I'd be sick of my sewing machine, but I did have some fabric left and figured that I'd google a pattern and try to make one.   I was talking with a friend about them, and asked her on if she'd think they would sell on the "FB Garage sale sites" in our area.  With the Family Sock Hop being about 2 weeks away, along with the Winter Dance Party Celebration, she gave me a big thumbs up and said I better get sewing incase there's a huge demand for them. 

The Hot pink one is for Sarah and boy was she VERY HAPPY when she got home and I had her try it on!  The smile on her face was priceless.

This pink one is what I put up on our garage sales sites... and it was only up for an hour when some asked for one in Red and little bit larger.  I'm sending Tom to JoAnn Fabrics tomorrow to pick up some fabric (and it's 50% off this week!) and more elastic... and a big cardboard box so that I can use it to make a few different sized patterns.
