This is my Creations Blog for my Embroidery, Sewing Creations, Projects and Photography Adventures... Picked up Sewing in 2011, mostly embroidery for the first year, then got into garment sewing, and then making all sorts of other custom projects...I Sew, do Photo Shop, Design all sorts of things from t-shirts to flags to spare tire covers. All for Hubby and Me. (and lots of stuff for the office, too!) I hope you enjoy what you see, and it sparks some creativity or inspiration in YOU... :-)
April Birthday Celebration
Okay, this is a follow-up to my post: Movie Star for a Month. This month it was My Birthday, too. at the time of the previous post, I didn't have the cake yet, so here is the Magnificent cake from Brittany....
I had been so busy that it was the day before the party and I realized I didn't have a party dress... Oh My... So I had already purchased this great fabric a linen blend $3/yd on the JA 50% off clearance days, and of course washed and ready to go, as is all my fabric when I get it home... I like to be ready... I had a dress pattern picked out that I wanted to make with it, so I set out to go for it. No pix as I went, so all I have is a done picture the following day in my office. McCall's M6115 pattern.
So, i am including some photos from the party. I embroider tags with Happy Birthday and their name on it and put it on the beanie birthday bears.
Here's the set up before the pot-luck lunch food comes... I try to make it festive, but we don't over power the room, just this little section. It is Pot-Luck, and we put more dollars into the food than into decorating the WHOLE kitchen :-)
The teams have to rotate in since part of the team is a call center, and need to cover the phones....
Then we had the return of the Angry Birds Toss Game that I created - Post here. It made it's debut at our holiday party in 2012. One of my colleagues calls me the CFO: Chief Fun-times Officer.... LOL...
Here are the two celebrants Marlene and Tom Playing... The door that is there is the door to my office :-)
