CiC Team Saturday – Chocolate! May 29, 2010

Good Morning World!  As you read this I’m probably already out of the house at my first ever soccer game.  My little girl is almost 4 years old and can finally start playing. Her daddy (Mr. BoutiqueKarma) is the volunteer coach for this mini team and their team color is Chocolate (we’ll be calling them the Chipits).

So in my daughter’s honor today’s CiC team Saturday theme is Chocolate (and everything that goes with it).

While you are at it, please check out these other CIC Team Saturday posts:

Wishful Wednesday – Part deux May 6, 2010

Can I do this? Can I really be this needy (read greedy) and let you all know that I really, really want this:

MODKID STELLA Sewing Pattern by Patty Young-Modern Handbag

All you ‘fans’ of mine who read this blog will probably realize that it links back to last week’s Wishful Wednesday’s Fabricshoppe who also sells fab patterns (who knew?). I really want to try my hand at this bag, it looks so cute and fun and will let me test out some new skills.  The pattern is actually by one of my favorite fabric designers Patty Young. The flora & fauna fabric just looks luscious on the bags. The one I’d love to make is the black/white version shown in this pic:

Of course this would mean, pattern, new fabric, etc… so hubby if you are reading this. Ahem… just ask Jody what I need.

Crafty Friday – a touch of the Irish part 1 March 12, 2010

I’m a huge fan of St. Patrick’s day and used to make sure to be at the parade every year. Even in bad weather, or cold conditions I’d be there. Since having wee ones I haven’t been back as often. I think the last time I was there, my husband and I were part of the parade and I had a wee one in my belly. Walking down the street, handing out candy was a difficult waddle let me tell you.

This year on parade day I’ll be throwing my little guy his 2nd birthday party – sadly I’ll be missing it again. I’ll be showing my colors over the next week and flaunting my Irish heritage with green clothing, accessories and constantly sporting my Mug Huggers and coffee sleeve in my St. Patrick themed fabric.

While surfing through hundreds of items for this edition I found so many items that I wanted to showcase. So I decided to split up this ‘Touch of the Irish’ edition into two parts. I’ll post some more on Montage Monday. Enjoy – I know I did!

Montage Monday – Valentine’s Blitz February 2, 2010

Do you love the feeling in the weeks before Valentines day? Do you love strolling through the shopping mall and seeing all the reds, pinks, word of love? It makes me happy, makes me feel all warm and fuzzy.

I also wonder why we need a holiday to show everyone our love of one another. Shouldn’t we show them every day? Give them special kisses and make sure they know? My daughter’s preschool is doing special Valentine’s day activities this week, they are making mailboxes out of tissue boxes and making valentines for one another. Next week they have their special Valentine’s day party.  This brings back memories of Valentine’s day in elementary & high school – it was always a very exciting day for certain girls and boys who received lots of valentines, but also made others feel horrible and left out.  It makes me sad to think of little sensitive souls feeling sad and unloved.

Today’s Montage Monday will be another exciting blitz of love, hearts and Valentines special items – for yourself or that someone special in your life:
