so i cut equal sized squares out of the front and back of the soaker. then i cut around the waistband, and cut that once to seperate it. i sewed up the squares into a pocket, then sewed the strap onto the sides. its not perfect by anymeans, and it lays a little funky, but my daughter is so thrilled with it. now she has a little purse, made from something we both loved.
i can be creative when i try!

its been super humid here. we have the AC on constantly. my son has decided he cant swim in the kiddie pool with his swimsuit on. he doesnt want to get it wet and ruin it!LMAO!! hes too funny. so yet another summer of naked children in the pool. Johanna just takes her clothes of randomly now, i dont think she likes the confinment of clothes.. my little free spirit!lol
still have massive amounts of zuccini invading. we did zucinni omelettes tonight for dinner. i think we're running out of options though, for what else we could make with the only vegetable we have growing this summer.

our neighbor gave us some plants the other day. so i have 6 spireah to plant, and 6 lilies to plant. but with the humidity, its not on my number one list! our zucchini crop has been outstanding. we have plenty to cook with and give away. ive made zucchini bread, we have baked, fried, and steamed it. Ive even shredded it into my turkey burgers. we 're trying to find as many things to do with it as we can!lol..i just wish our tomatoes would start producing. we have two full grown plants that have green tomatoes on them, that refuse to turn red. im not dure how long they can stay on the plant and not rot, so we might be trying fried green tomatoes if this continues. i did go to the farmers market on sunday, and brought home a dozen corn cob. i boiled em for 9 mins, cut the corn off the cob and froze them for the winter. i hope to get another doz soon so i can do this again. it helped us out alot this winter. we had corn atleast once a week, and i made an amazing corn chowder!yum!! My husband is excited about the pumpkin plant that planted itself. im one of those horrible people that let the pumpkins rot on the step after halloween. well, this year something good came out of it! the seeds planted themselves right next tothe step. the vine itself is getting pretty big, and has flowers on it. ill be anxious to see if it actually produces a pumpkin. it would be soo nice not to buy one this year!
well, off to get things done today. laundry in the wash, dishes in the sink, lots to do!

i support other wahms on my site, out of an appreciation for the hard handiwork that goes into their product. any product i talk about on this site is something i purchased, or is made by a friend. i want all wahms to get great business and stay open. if i link a product i love, and dont buy, it is to show off that wahms talent and hope it is recognized. i will never ask for a free product to review, because its in poor taste. i hope my readers do not blame me for the spamming bloggers poor judgement. one bad egg shouldnt ruin it for everyone else.

got some neat fluffy mail today. i got a amethyst/moonstone ankelet from Mystical healing Gems, shes on the Mainstreet congo with me. Darice is a very nice momma, and makes quaility jewerly. she uses all natural stones, and still manages to keep the price resonable! shes doing a second stocking this monday on Mainstreet.
then i also got a gorgeous hand sewn dress from E2designs. shes also on HC, DS and the alamode congo. i did a trade with her for the Peter Rabit dress she made with the hat that matches. . but i have to say, they all fit like a dream, and look too sweet on my daughter. its a very special dress, that i think johanna is going to wear to a tea party im planning with my mother. something about beatrix potter and tea party, go hand in hand..
here is E2 designs on Alamode:
i am waiting on candles from Bris Scentsations, and custom shirts and dresses from Lulubird Designs.

Not alot going on here. rain and thunder...so its dreary. i some how attached myself to the television today, for the Micheal Jackson Memorial. got me all misty eyed. i cant watch sad stuff anymore, it gets me all upset. the hardest part was watching his daughter speak. shes a beautiful little girl, who just said some simple sweet words. but coming from a child that has never been really seen in public, it was amazing. i wish the best for those kids. they have a huge family to support them, but they need to support eachother. its sad..i wanted to hug her..
enough sadness, maybe if the rain goes away i can smile! i pulled my first squash off our plants yesturday, so i hope this rain gives us somemore!!

Hidden Element has its grand opening tomarrow. i listed 3 aliens. theres alot of very cool wahms on the congo, and alot of very reputable wahms as well. its definatly worth checking out
i sold alot this weekend. custom slippers,toys,playfood..i was very busy crocheting and packing them all up to get mailed. the Post master is going to love me later today :) all i have left to make is one brobee doll, that i couldnt finnish this weekend, then i can work on that massive playfood order i have from a DS momma im trading with. this momma has goobs of talent in her. shes drawing me a family picture and some other pics for my kids rooms. im hoping when shes all done and i get to really look at everything in person, that i can drag her onto one of the many congos im on. i think she could do really well.

so, i got creative today. my daughter recieved this doll as a gift a month ago. i cant stand the doll, she had on a horrible outfit, and johanna wouldnt play with it. so i took the outfit off, and there was a slightly better one on it, which was sewn on. Johanna would play with it after that. she actually plays with the doll all the time now, and sleeps with it.. so i figured i should do something special for the doll, and to make me like it a little better.
so i made the shorts first, outa a gorgeous wool i have that i dont have enough to do anything else with. Johanna was in love, showed my husband as soon as he got home. then im looking at it, and it needs a shirt. i took the lazy route, and set up a thread on DS asking for spam from anyone that made doll shirts. well, i got alot of compliments on the longies but noone mentioned the shirt.. so i sat down and thought about it. after and hour of drawing up the pattern, then an hour and a half of testing on ugly fabric. i got it right. this top is amazing. it has a snap up back, so i dont have to go over that huge head. and it fits like a dream. now that i made the pattern im going to make a few more, and mess with it a little. im very happy with the end result. and the fact that i dont have to go out and buy the doll clothes. this doll is totally johannas personality, and when she wakes up tomarrow morning i know shes going to be in love!! now i just have to figure out what to do with that hair!
