Crumpets & Strumpets


So have you ever asked yourself, Why did this girl name her blog Strumpet's Crumpets?
Well, my sister and I talk about opening a tea shop or just a cute shop with awesome stuff, and the name I came up with was Strumpet's Crumpets. Now Lauren didn't love it, because the definition of a strumpet is lady of the night or too much make up wearing harlot. :) Plus no one ever knows what a strumpet is - READ PEOPLE!!! In highschool my literature teacher, Dr. Wright, was this super southern, super gay, super expressive man. And whenever he would read strumpet he would elongate the word and raise his voice. Same with harlot and words in the same genre. He cracked me up! I went to Catholic school and this is what stuck with me. So I love the word strumpet, but say it Struuuumpet, like Dr. Wright! My aunt Jackie loves the name ps, this is why I love her so much!
So Strumpet's Crumpets got it's name :) I'm not a strumpet, but I do wear alot of makeup :)
At the grocery store I found crumpets (never actually saw a crumpet before) - tada!
Also....
I'm finished cutting all the triangles for my sister's quilt - now I need to pick an order for them to go in!
I had a very wonderful weekend!
Mickey got a bath (finally) tonight.
so sleepy...night :)
It was a good Monday - unusual!

Don't Forget

Last year's Maggle's Day present! My siblings and I call our mom Mags. Her name is Maggie, and she's super cute and super small, to keep the cute going we call her Mags. So I embroidered her a Mags Sacred Heart. Also have a Mags & Daddy tattoo :)


I found this for new moms on etsy! Beckaboo made it! I just thought it was too cute!



Cute charm bracelet and staying with the Hearts Mom theme! Go to the
TheMischiefMakers on etsy!


Lauren's graduation quilt is still going - not sewn yet!
There's alot of cutting involved. Mickey comes and sits right on my lap when I'm trying to draw!
He's sometimes a pest - good thing he's cute!
5 down 8 to go! Slowly but surely :)

Spring Clean!

I can make a mess, and I hate cleaning up! But this weekend I took a lil time and spring cleaned!!! The worst was all my art supplies and fabric. Now I can actually use this desk! Very exciting!

This embroidery thread is in use, so it's ok if it's messy! I need a better system for all this thread! Plus Mickey runs off with it sometimes and I find it all throughout the house. Tricky pup!

Here's a little mermaid from Red Velvet Art that I embroidered! 
I picked brown for the hair, because lil Mags (mom) has pretty dark hair! Plus light hair would have looked washed out. I kinda wanted to make it green :) maybe next time!
She's still in progress, so stand by!


Happy Monday :)

Here are a lot of pictures! Pretty things I thought I'd share!
I went to Anthropologie yesterday looking for Mother's Day gifts and graduation gifts for lil Lo!
This would like perfect for pei wei take out!!!

I want to make this!!!!


For the boos - molly and adam :)
They love owls, because they saw an owl of the first date - they're married now.



Oh my lil Robbie! Some smurf icecream!


I would like to wear this white lacey (grease lightning) dress for a wedding dress!
And the lucky brides maids can duke it out for the pink and yellow ones :)
I really do love them! I think it's fitting!

You know in cartoons when the characters eye is huge behind the magnifine glass, well lookie here! :) I now want a magnifine glass or two!!!
Oh these are life vest for dogs, they were in this WAY over priced dog store!
It cracked me up seeing all these poor dogs dressed up in tutus and glittery stuff - the owners looked just as ridiculous, so there you go! But where else can you find a doggie life vest! Mickey can safely go boating now ;)


And B for beckaroo!
Oh there's more pictures on my flickr!

7 random things about ME

I saw this on CreateLoves blog, who found it on  OrangeYouLucky! I thought it was cute and interesting!

 

1.Getting letters in the mail makes me so stoked!

  2. I love plucking my eyebrows – Also love drawing them back on

      3.I try to use my brain in decision making, but my heart ALWAYS wins 

4 .        4. I preach more than I practice – example: I eat crap most of the time, I never exercise, etc. you get the idea!

5.     I’m extremely impulsive

6.     6.Never thought I’d be a crazy dog person, but my lil Mickey is just so sweet! He is overflowing with puppy personality.  If he is any indication of how I’ll raise children – I’ll have super happy, playful, chubby, spoil kiddos

    7.I love my family with all my heart (very obvious)  they make me the most happy, and all that happiness gets spread to the gang at work and all my friends – it’s infectious ;)

 

Speaking of my family, I’m spending the evening with my lil cousin Robbie. He is the most rough n tumble 5 year old , but  also loves to sew! He cracks me up!  Have a wonderful weekend! Your turn! In the comments tell me 7 random things about you!


Just me not practicing what I preach, drinking way too much sugar and caffeine!

Distractions

So my sister, Lauren, is graduating from FSU in May with super duper honor awards! I'm not completely sure the wording for it, but she got all A's in all 4 years of college! All A's! I'm so so proud of her! So I decided I wanted to do something special - make her a quilt she can keep forever! Now if history plays out she'll get this when she's out of grad school - jk ;) kinda. The one lil squirt, lil E, is the only kiddo who received a totally completed quilt for his 4th bday last year. So Lauren and Kris (married in Oct 08, wedding quilt almost complete) keep your fingers cross for completion sometime this year!
Here's the quilt I'm making for Lo!I started cutting the triangles for the grad quilt and got alil distracted every time!
Yesterday was blissfulness and sleepy. Today was a lil mermaid I want to embroidered! It's tough! lol Then The Office was a new episode tonight!Then there lil Mickey who wants to play lambs!
So many lambs on sale after Easter! Heaven to lil Mickester!
I can sew over the weekend - unless it's beautiful outside, or the lake is perfect, or my family comes over, dunnys to be purchased, spring cleaning even ........ see it's difficult ;)

Here you go!

Had time to sew over the weekend! 

And at Easter!

We played Quiddler (most fun game ever!) and I got this hand! 

Ok so my dad is the BEST!

My dad asked me to come see his workshop on Sunday. When I’m in there he’s going on and on about these books we read and how the main character keeps everything (packrat) important to him. When I was younger my parents let me express myself by painting my walls, gluing the walls, tiling things, etc.  So in bettering the d├ęcor in the house they took down this banister in my old room, decorated to the T with paint. I was probably 10 when I did this! My dad couldn’t throw it out. He put it in his workshop as a doorframe! It is just sweet and special that he cares! When I saw it I almost cried! He is the BEST, did I mention that? J

look at those skills lol yikes
iphone messed up this picture lol


This Easter was the year of the Maxi dress.
 Two too short sisters wear too long dresses!



New dunnys coming next month!!!! Super stoked about that, but really annoyed they are raising the price :(

I tried to make breakfast for everyone, but forgot to set the timer - wampwamp!
That just means Starbucks breakfast yay!
I did do a lot of cooking last night and nothing burn or did anything weird, so that's exciting for me, and for all you that have to eat it!
