Kitty Cat Apron(s)

I made this Kitty apron for our friend Debbie. Hubby and I found the fabric and thought it was adorable, so I snapped it right up.

I was plugging away on the apron and realized, as I was putting the pockets on, that I had cut the pattern upside down! OOOPS! Rather than waste perfectly good materials, I decided to finish the apron and just make another for Debbie. So We got this material and I made the apron below. The positive side is I learned that I can make this style apron-from pinning and cutting fabric to completely done- in about  3 hours. I was impressed and pleased!  Also, that Debbie liked this one more because she LOVES colors on dark materials. Win, win. :)

Halloweenie Cards

Happy Day After Halloween! Or, today is Dia de los Muertos, if you prefer. :) Hope you are not too hopped up on sugar!

I made these cards randomly over the past couple weeks, and just forgot to ever upload them as they were made or before Halloween. Both were 5 minute cards while I was sitting at the table bored and just playing with my supplies (my craft cart is really paying off to be able to just play with stuff again), and then all of sudden I had cute cards. The orange one came about because I was testing how to make a circular card and then I thought "This would make a cute pumpkin", so I made it into one. The other one happened because I was looking at the Washi tape I had just bought on clearance and just threw it on a card and found it was the perfect fit to throw in the stamp. I love when things work out so well.
