The aftermath from Craft Fair Number 1!


This is my craft room currently. Scary, isn't it?! My first craft fair was a success. I made about 126 dollars that day (which covers the table I bought and both craft fairs' fees), but I learned soooo much! I learned that you shouldn't put your prices out or else people will just walk by. I learned that no one wants to touch your display so everything must be more visible. I also learned that I really need more sizes maybe even up to 3T-5T. I learned that my whales are adorable and that I should have something to hand out to all the kids. I also learned that if you talk up your stuff enough people will buy it! lol. My favorite thing I learned is that I'm actually quite good at handing back change. I've never worked retail so that was a major shocker!

So I have another craft fair on the 20th plus a custom order for two cute little baby sets I made. You get an appliqued onesie, a pair of pants, two bibs and three burp cloths.

I ordered the cutest sign and stickers on Vistaprint! They all coordinate with whales. The small stickers will be handed out to the kids who walk by and the bigger stickers will go on my bags or boxes. I thought it makes it look more professional with "labels" like that. Soooo excited to receive them.

I'm going to be posting some of my cute stuff as soon as I get good pictures. Our cable is out for 5 days so I'll have lots of time to sew.

Hello, November!

First and foremost, I want to apologize for my lack in posting for the 31 Days. I'll be honest, I just didn't feel like posting. Life here was pretty gosh darn wonderful and I feel like I got more out of October than the entire year. A few snippets of last month:
- Todd and I celebrated our 2nd wedding anniversary. He worked extremely late that night, so we didn't do anything that day. We spent his day off bowling, eating delicious burgers, walking the Rio Grande and then having ice cream. Lovely lovely day.
- I lost 15lbs since August. Go me! I slipped up with the Halloween candy, but other than that, I'm trying to not gain weight again.
- All three of my soldiers are coming home! My mail stop date came and I was unable to send one of my soldiers their birthday presents. I will be donating the shirts I got him to a local charity that helps school kids get new clothes.
- I have been keeping our casa as clean as possible.
- I have been working on craft fair items. My first craft fair will be Saturday and I'm so nervous!


I took a break from the internet to an extent. I still checked out Facebook (I got a smartphone which meant I could see FB whenever I wanted) and another forum I frequent. Other than that I stopped reading blogs. I love the home decor and crafting blogs I follow. I think the people who run the blogs are incredibly talented and make wonderful things. I just get jealous... and when I get that way, I shop. I found myself thrift shopping every day to find good deals. I found myself buying stuff just to buy it. It's so wasteful. Then I realized that there's something more important than just buying "stuff". I want a house. I want a house to do beautiful things to. Not an apartment! So I stopped reading blogs to curb the temptation. In fact, I feel so much more happy. We've been sending emails and making phone calls to get prepared to buy a house. We're so excited and that thrill makes buying random bits and bobs less exciting.

So life here in changing and I hope to finish up some projects laying around the apartment. I can't wait to post some pictures of my craft fair set up and I hope to make a lot of Christmas gifts this year! I apologize to those who were looking for more content during the 31 Days. I'm going to try posting more often, I promise!

Etsy has been updated!

Last month I took down my Etsy shop because I had someone inform me that my mini whales were falling apart. Tragic! So I updated my shop with all the bib and burp cloth sets I made. I'm currently signed up for two craft fairs and a possible 3rd. EEP!

So here's a link to my shop:
Flipping Adorable

Isn't this robot fabric positively adorable?! I want clothing made from it if I could find it again! They have a fleece version and I'm pretty sure I'll be making pajama pants from it!

If you haven't noticed, I've linked up my cookie cutter shelf to a bunch of blogs. I'm extremely proud of it and sad that I haven't done anything spectacular lately. I've been cleaning the kitchen cabinets and bleaching the counters and sink. Yeah, I'm living on the edge!

Ugly shelf turned cookie making organizer.

Remember this shelf mentioned in my weekend review?



This is its new purpose!






I was originally going to make a ribbon holder, but then a bag of cookie cutters fell on my head when I opened a cabinet. Annoying, right? I had two gallon bags filled with cookie cutters and more in the "baking gear" drawer. This season I plan on sending food packs for Christmas instead of actual presents because we're poor saving for a house. I decided to come up with a way to hold all my cookie making gear and Boom! My great idea was born. The best part was this entire project cost me about 40 cents. Yes, I said 40 cents! Now, it was actually 5 bucks for the picture frame hangers but they're each 20 cents and I know for sure I'll be using them for other projects I have in mind.



I actually got to use power tools for this project! I was so excited to finally bust out my jigsaw. I needed a sander, a drill with a drill bit that was the size of my dowel pieces, my jigsaw, eye protection and mouth cover.








I used my dumpster dived shelf, a long dowel I had laying around, paint from a failed project and some spare scrapbook paper. The only thing I bought was the picture frame hangers. I first pried off the decorative edging on the bottom. Then, I decided to drill out my holes for my dowels on top. I wrapped the drill bit with some masking tape so I wouldn't drill through the top of the shelf.









After that I sanded down the shelf. Not a lot actually because the paint I used had primer/paint combo. After I sanded and wiped down, I measured out my dowel pieces then used my jigsaw to cut them. You could also buy dowels in the wood crafts section that are all uniform. I just used the piece of sandpaper from the sander to sand off the rough edges.








After that, I used the handle of a paintbrush to dip into the wood glue, then into the hole. I then dipped the dowel in the wood glue, then put into the holes.









Finally, I wiped down the excess glue and let it dry for a bit. I then painted with Valspar primer/paint combo in Ultra White eggshell finish. It's good, but you need very thin coats and allow to dry between coats. I couldn't get the bottom shelf to become fully white, so I added scrapbook paper. I don't know how I cut it out to fit so well, but I totally did and mod-podged it on. Go me!



So in the end, all of this:








Went to this:







I got the little green organizers months ago at Dollar Tree. They were a 3pk for a dollar. They're perfect for the mini cookie cutters and all the sprinkles and colored sugar I had. If I ever get more cookie cutters, I'm going to string a ribbon under the bottom to thread them on. I have the idea in my head, but I think I'm good on cookie cutters. Unless I find ROBOT COOKIE CUTTERS!

Did you know I love these cups?

If you don't have these:





You're most likely wasting money. Back when I actually had a job, I had the task of making lunches for both Todd and I. Being that I prefer to sleep in until the last possible moment, lunch-making was a real pain in my butt. I had to make it more streamline, so I started buying a crapload of single serve items. Single serve yogurt, single serve fruit cups, single serve peanut butter... you get the idea. While picking up more lunch stuff, I came across these little Gladware cups at Target, on sale. I bought a few packs of them thinking they'd be handy to have around the house.

They saved. my. life.

They also saved my bank account! Sugar free fruit cups were about 3 dollars for 4 cups. That's 75 cents a serving. With the investment of these cups, I could buy a big jar of fruit for 2 dollars and portion it out to 5 cups coming to 40 cents a cup! Oh, and yogurt? Buy a 32oz. tub of yogurt (8 1/2c. servings in one tub) for 2 bucks and it becomes 25 cents a serving! You can even jazz them up by adding some canned or frozen fruit to the cup before adding the yogurt. Yum!

Some more pros to these: Portion control. Each holds a 1/2 cup. They're dishwasher safe and cheap enough so if Todd leaves them in the car for a month (it's happened) I won't cry if I throw away without opening.

You can take this:

And turn them into this:


Use a little piece of masking tape to label the top. If you're counting calories, you can add the count as well:





Pop them in the fridge! I use Dollar Tree plastic storage containers in my fridge. We keep the sandwich fixings and junk food in the produce drawers and the fresh veggies, fruits and snacks on the shelf. Makes healthy snacking a lot easier when you can see it!


What else can these little cups be used for? Here's a list!
- Dips such as hummus, salsa, ranch
- Homemade baby food (you can freeze them in the container as well!)
- Jello and pudding. One box can make up to 4 servings
- Peanut butter for dipping
- Applesauce
- Cooked rice
- Veggies such as peas, chopped carrots, corn
- Nuts and seeds
- Dry cereal for toddler snacking
- Trail mix
- Fresh/canned/frozen fruit and berries
- Soften up some ice cream and portion out into cups. Put lid on and freeze. Makes wonderful portion control ice cream. (have you seen that the Ben and Jerry ones are sometimes over a dollar each?! Ridiculous)

And some non-food related news: You can find these in the baby section at Dollar Tree.


I don't like to use those for food... mostly because I can't get the lids off easily! Use these cups for:
- Craft organization
- Brush rinsing water cups for painting projects
- Kid friendly paint cups (cut a hole in the top big enough for a paintbrush. Fill with washable poster paint and put the lid back on. Give to kiddo to go to town! Do the same for the brush rinsing cup as well)
- Poke some holes in the bottom and use for seedlings. Put the cup lid underneath to catch a bit of the water
- If the lid is good and tight, poke numerous small holes in the top (could use a sharp thick needle or a nail). Use as a glitter shaker.
- Use as a jewelry holder for traveling. Put small post earrings or necklaces so they don't get lost in your bag.
- Office organization.

See? The possibilities are endless for such an inexpensive item.

I'm linking up to Infarrantly Creative's Great Ideas linky party.

How many projects do YOU have?


This, m'dears, is my craft room. Notice the air mattress in the lower left corner from when my sister stayed with us nearly two weeks ago. There's a pile of blankets needing wash next to it. See the pile of onesies on the craft table in need of applique. Oh, that pile o' crap next to the cutting table? Just some stuff that needs to be mailed out sitting on top of an IKEA cabinet that we can't hang in our bathroom. All that glorious fabric should be something by now... but it's not.

Oh, under the cutting table? That little table my dad made me in... gosh, 2004? I was going to paint it with Hindu gods or a mandala of sorts. Still plain. Those bags of fabric were meant to go to an animal rescue a YEAR ago.

My smoked lucite chairs Todd bought me. They're supposed to be for the computer desk... one is cleaned and covered. The other is still in need of work.

That ottoman I covered months ago is ugly and needs to be fixed. I used wire mesh for the seat but I want to use wood instead... still haven't taken care of it. That brown storage cube ottoman has been in need of a rip apart since I bought it nearly two years ago!

Ninja is a project all in himself, but that's not what I'm talking about. That dog bed (aka, the old top of the ottoman) needs to be covered. The futon needs a slipcover, but now I'm hoping to find a real couch instead. Don't tell Todd! :)


Let's not forget the kitchen table. Oh, see those candlesticks?! They're crazy! They're like twisted slinkies. Todd said they called to him at Thrift Town. I think Todd should live in a chrome and black house. :)

So as you can see, I have a lot of projects to do around the house. How is it that a person with a very part-time job and nothing else to do can amass such a large amount of projects. It's simple: procrastination. A lot of times it's because I simply don't know what to do. I don't know how I want to paint the kitchen table so I haven't. I don't know what fabric I want for the dog bed. What should I do on the onesies? See, these are problems I face.

Other times, however, it's just pure procrastination. I put it in the back of my mind and don't think about it anymore. Well no more of that! My goal is to tackle one project a week.

It's going to be hard. I need someone to keep my on track! I just think it's high time I start finishing things around here. One day I shall no longer be called "Nessa the Procrastinator". I'll be called "Nessa the Girl Who Finishes Her Projects In A Timely Manner".... or something a bit more catchy.

A little about Soldiers' Angels and my care packages!


If you couldn't tell by my previous post, I have three adopted soldiers. I adopted them through Soldiers' Angels. Soldiers' Angels is a non-profit organization that matches people to deployed soldiers who need support while away from their homes and family. You're obligated for a year to write a weekly letter and send a monthly package. You can ask any person who has served overseas and they will tell you that getting a care package from home was well needed!

Sign up was easy. You're asked to make a small donation (at least a dollar) to become verified. Once you are a verified angel, you can adopt up to 3 soldiers. Now, you get an address and you can write to your soldier about anything. Tell them about yourself, your hobbies, funny stories. At some point in the letter, give them words of encouragement. You may or may not hear back from your soldiers. I signed up in July and have just recently heard back from two of my three soldiers. Don't let this discourage you! Remember these men and women are busy and often away from the base for days at a time.

We all live hectic busy lives, so it may be hard to make a commitment to a weekly letter. Consider going in with a group of co-workers or your entire office to adopt one or two soldiers. Put a box out for people to drop off items and letters to be sent. Designate one or two people to do the shipping and collecting. Because Soldiers' Angels is a non-profit, your company may be able to write it off as a charitable donation (please see tax laws as I'm not exactly sure if this is true!). 

If the commitment is too much, you can get involved in other ways! You can always make a one time purchase of a care package to be sent a soldier on the waiting list. Organize a supply drive or send a one time care package. You can also join the letter writing team or one of the many groups that work with this progam.

Now that I've told you about the program, you can click the link on the right side of my blog for more information! I just want to show you everything that can fit in a large flat rate box. Also, when you ship to a military address, it's two dollars off the large flat rate price.

So here's what my first soldier, who sent back his survey, is getting. That weird wrapped up thing in the upper right hand corner is laundry detergent that I wrapped with tape and plastic bags so it wouldn't leak on anything. A flying disc, a wood plane glider and an inflatable monkey (just some fun little toys). A package of drink mixes. 3 suckers. Box of envelopes. A notebook. Toothbrush. Deodorant (I bought twin packs and broke them up keeping the extra for Todd). A cooling bandanna. The two books (he likes Star Wars and Sci-Fi) were free as Todd doesn't want to read the series. My soldier asked for boxer shorts and some undershirts.

All packed in! The other packages will have the same stuff except the books, detergent, boxers and undershirts. Because I don't know what they need and I don't want to sent too much (space is limited in their barracks usually), I'll probably send some edibles or a magazine or two.

I hope someone reading this may decide on adopting a soldier or getting involved.

Oh this day, ten years ago.

I think it's easy to remember where we were when it happened. I was a junior in high school on my way to school. The radio cut into a song to say that a plane had hit the first tower of the World Trade Center. My first period class was U.S. History where our teacher brought out the tv and we watched the entire period. We watched as the second tower fell.

On this day I encourage you to do something for Patriot's Day. There are men and women in sweltering heat, far away from home and fighting for our freedom. I don't agree with the war but I will ALWAYS support the troops!

This kitchen table of mine...

This is our second free table. The first was a farm style table that we found by the dumpster at the apartment complex across the street. Todd actually carried over the table and I drove the chair we also snagged (it's in the back of the table).  Free is always a favorite price for me! Then our downstairs neighbors moved out and left this round table by the dumpster. Todd, once again, took our old table down and brought up the new round table. Isn't is just lovely? I mean that in a somewhat nice way.

This table has been a thorn in my side. First, we needed chairs. We had one, then we bought that green one at Goodwill for 10 bucks. When my sister and her boyfriend visited, we had two chairs, a computer chair and a folding chair. Oh yes, we're classy like that! Just yesterday we found those two oak chairs. They're sturdy and heavy and I reeeeeeally wish they had 4 of them and not just 2. They were 13 dollars each at Thrift Town, but with my 5 dollars off coupon it came to about 21 bucks. So the total cost of our table set is 31 dollars. Not. Too. Shabby!


But I'm an avid HGTV watcher and I cannot even fathom leaving this as-is. The free chair has a cushion, missing arms and needs a bit of hole patching. The green chair needs to be sanded down or stripped. The oak chairs are in the best condition but I dislike the stain... so that's more sanding!

This was my idea for the table top. White with gray stripes. In fact, I all ready bought the dark gray paint!
Then I imagined piling the center with tons of silver candlesticks and maybe a silver vase. You can find a ton of silver at thrift shops! This is a pic of my idea that I snagged from google images.

Silver is so sophisticated and classic but dramatic. I loved this idea!

But now I feel like it may be too "fancypants" for us. I mean, we have dog crates in the kitchen for crying out loud! I'm still so confused as to what I should do. I saw that someone painted their tabletop with chalkboard paint which is pretty freaking awesome, but it would make more sense if we had kids to appreciate it. As it is, we haven't sat at our table since Thanksgiving! I'm a sucker for cool tones like turquoise, green, violet but then with bright pops like yellow or orange. I always think I'm supposed to be fancy, but then I find myself drawn to kitsch like robots and 60s-70s decor items. *sigh*

So there's my problem: what should I do? I wanted to have it painted before my sister and her boyfriend visited, but it's not going to happen. The primer takes seven days to cure. I think for now I should leave it be and finish up our bedroom. That's going to be a fun before and after!

Oh Phoenix, you always disappoint.

Todd and I got back last week from a quick weekend trip to Phoenix. The original reason for going was to help transport a dog from Phoenix up to St. George, UT. Well, the transport fell through and we were left with tickets to see the Arizona Diamondbacks play the L.A. Dodgers. What to do? Make the hotel reservations and get packed!

We weren't actually planning on staying in Phoenix so it was a mad scramble to find stuff to do there. We had went to Phoenix a few months after we were married to see the Minnesota Vikings play the Arizona Cardinals. The entire trip was terrible (including watching the worst game the Vikings played that entire season! Todd was disappointed as he's the Vikings fan) so we didn't really care much for the place as it is.

The biggest excitement in driving to Phoenix was Todd's car, Ned Flanders, was going to hit a milestone. About 40 miles into Arizona, Neddy hit 100,000 miles!

We actually pulled off at the nearest exit so we could get a picture. This 2003 Pontiac Grand Am will be around forever!!!

We got into Phoenix early Friday afternoon. We checked into our hotel (cannot say enough about Best Western MetroCenter Inn) and jumped into the pool for an hour. Todd and I are used to triple digit heat, but swimming sounded relaxing after the six hour drive. We then got ready and headed to Chase Field.

Todd has a life goal of seeing a MLB game in every pro stadium. This was his 7th and my 3rd.


After the game, we pretty much passed out. I woke up early on Saturday because I was so excited. I was finally going to see Mecca. I was going to IKEA.

I planned this part of our trip more than anything else. I had directions, I had lists of what I wanted and dreams of what to drool over. I. Was. READY!

That is, until we got there. It's amazing but I was sad that I couldn't find anything I really REALLY liked. Granted, we got 375 dollars' worth of stuff, but I was sad that I didn't come home with something super exciting. In fact, I was too busy looking around to get any pictures.

We drove back Sunday and decided to detour into Winslow, Arizona.

 Whenever we're on a road trip, we fight over whose iPods get plugged in. The rule is whoever drives gets to choose the music. Well, I'm much better driving the long distances on the freeways while Todd is great at driving around in cities. This means I got to drive the majority of the I-40. On my iPod, there's an Eagles song called Takin' It Easy. There's a part of the song that goes:
Standin' on the corner in Winslow Arizona
Such a fine sight to see!
It's a girl my lord in a flat bed Ford
Slowin' down to take a look at me...

I HAVE to sing this song every time we pass by Winslow. This time though, we got to actually stop!

There's a gift shop across from this corner that plays up their little claim to fame. Todd and I want to drive route 66, so we'll inevitably come through here again.

So that was our trip. We have very little pictures because we didn't too much except eat a lot of mexican food. Sounds weird but there's only NEW Mexican food here in Albuquerque and sometimes you need that Cali-Mex style food that can be found in Arizona.

Now that we're done with Arizona, we maintain that northern AZ is much better than southern AZ. It's a beautiful mix of forest and desert. Plus, the Grand Canyon is in northern AZ which means it wins hands down.

Now I leave you with the most adorable pictures of guard kitty. Everything is closed in Winslow on a Sunday, but the stores are still being protected!

A sad day in my life...

I don't get excited about magazines that much. I'll loiter at Borders or Hastings and read them for free. I rarely buy them.

Except one: ReadyMade magazine.


 I LOVE ReadyMade. My sister worked at this amazingly awesome home decor shop many years ago. They carried ReadyMade and she introduced me to it. I would pore over every issue (sent every other month) and dream of having a house so I could do every awesome thing I saw in it. From the above wall art turned stools or wooden hangers turned into a side table, I wanted to do it all! In fact, I entertained the idea of having my home featured in ReadyMade. They were DIY for our generation. They believed in turning old into new and I appreciated all that they did.

I always knew something was up when they moved from San Fran to Des Moines. They moved around the time my favorite magazine, Domino, had gone under and I worried they'd fall too. But RM persevered and we were lucky enough to see even more issues.

But with the economy being what it is, it was inevitable that the small magazine (which, surprisingly, could be found in Albuquerque at the bookstores, Target, Walmart AND Smith's) would be discontinued.

Well, it happened. ReadyMade announced that they will be ceasing production. My heart is heavy and saddened. I know most people would say, "Oh for crying out loud, it's a MAGAZINE!" but to me it was more than that. It was inspiration. It was motivation. It was a fresh set of eyes on ordinary items. It was a textbook in all things DIY and innovative.

So godspeed ReadyMade staff. I hope you all continue to look at everything with a creative mind. I hope that eventually you'll be able to bring back ReadyMade. I feel like it was the most underrated magazine ever.

Crafting for me... finally!

First and foremost: I love that etsy has a new posting set up. At first I thought it would be annoying but not so much! I love their new question asking who made it and what is it. It may not stop the resellers but hopefully it'll make flagging the resellers a bit easier.

Second of all, I haven't done much crafting for myself in quite some time! Todd and I have been saving as much as we can to buy a house next year. We don't want to re-sign our apartment lease. Because of this, we haven't been doing much spending and that includes avoiding the craft stores unless I have good coupons or I absolutely need something.

Anywho, I came across this super cute top on Craftster and realized I had everything for it! I've been wanting some new clothes but feel tremendous guilt for even going to Ross or Target's clearance section (although I got a free shirt using a $3 off coupon on a 3 dollar clearance shirt!). This top took me about 15 minutes. The longest part was pinning the slippery scarf to the stretchy jersey knit. That's why I'm wearing a belt with it to keep everyone from seeing the wonkiness. I found out my new sewing machine uses my old presser feet so I have a walking foot. For some reason though it speeds the fabric through so quickly that it looks super messy. So here's my super cute top!


I adore it! I haven't had a pink top in quite some time.

Busy busy busy...

I bought a crapload of fabric a few months ago and it's taken me forever to work through them! I took all the flannel and made them into bibs/burpcloths/washcloths. Here are a few of my favorites! I have them on my Etsy (Flipping Adorable).

I have been slacking on posting my craft projects. I have a feeling someone is copying some of my stuff, so I stopped posting. I just don't trust that, ya know? So now I won't post anything here or on my facebook page until it's up on my etsy if it's something I'm going to sell. Things I do or like I'll post quicker.





This is a bundle of burp cloths. :)



I'm supposed to be involved in a craft fair this upcoming Friday, but the woman didn't respond with the specifics. I'm working on a few new projects. I've been trying to make more "boy friendly" stuff. Drafting patterns is hard!

Part two of my packages!!!

So if you saw my previous post, you saw that I won a wonderful yeti giveaway from Alexz (Spooky Pooky Creations) and Amy (The Mad Crafter). Today I got my package from Alexz and I was thrilled! Awhile ago, she made me a yeti for my great niece and now I have my very own.




My entire winnings!



Thank you Amy and Alexz! I can't wait to get a shelf for the craft room so I can put everything up.

Sunday, April 10, 2011

I got half my goods!

A few months ago I won a wonderful giveaway from Alexz and Amy and I got my package from Amy! Inside was the sweetest yeti hat (which, honestly, I will buy more next winter as they actually fit my fat head!), a yeti plushie and a yeti mounted head. I plan on getting a small shelf for my craft room to hold all the yeti awesomeness!

Scrap Snake.

I saw a cute scrap snake on Craftster and figured I'd use up some of my scraps and make one too. I hate those damn tiny safety eyes. They're a bitch to get the backing onto the eye post. I think it's cute though. I think if I made a few more I'd do them a bit more squiggly or longer so they're not so stiff. Either way I like how it came out and thought it was sweet. I'm trying to work on more "boy friendly" stuffies. :)

Didn't get it, ooooh well.

I didn't get into the Austin Renegade Craft fair. I spent yesterday feeling sorry for myself and whimpering and wailing, "I'LL NEVER CRAFT AGAAAAAAAAAAAIN!"

Okay, not that dramatic but I felt like doing that. Today I woke up feeling a bit better. Yesterday someone left me lovely feedback on my etsy shop and the munchkin I nanny for adores her tutu/skirt. I left the tulle a bit long and even added some organza and she's so happy with it. She asked for another dress so I'm going to tackle a circle skirt as she loves spinning and wants it to float up. Things always get better.

I don't know if I'll try for any other Renegade show. I'm really someone who likes to go big or go home. Didn't work so well.

Today I worked on adding all the whales I made for my application to my etsy shop. I'm going to go to Lowe's to make us a new desk (which is completely random but hey! I need to do something a bit manly to feel better) and then I'm going to get back to crafting. I bought a showcase spot a few weeks ago and completely forgot about it! Whoops.

I leave you with citrus wedges I made. Are these not the cutest things ever? I was so proud of them!
