For the Love of my ROOMBA!

My wonderful parents got us the most luxurious, thoughtful, and generous present for Christmas this year.... a Roomba, and we love her.  Her name is Rosario,  Rosie for short.

(run Rosie run!!!)

Like one of the family, we looooove her.  Jojo CHEERS her on, rubs her, and even kisses her for appreciated work done.

one of us sees her as a riding toy... but Rosie got her revenge on him!

We all named our Roomba's the list is: Hilda, Amelia Badelia, Roberta, Sally, and Rosie the Roomba.

So I had the brilliant idea to tag them all, I mean you never know when we are all going to show up at the same place with our little buddies and we don't want any confusion.... right?  So I hope everyone enjoys their vinyl names for their new family members.  You can get yours HERE. ;)

another dry Christmas

for my friend Loree who has tooooo many pets.

I totally messed up and got paint all over above her name... so I added ribbon, and more ribbon.... then some random crocheted pieces I found at a yard sale. Very unique, just like Loree, hope she likes it!

inspired by Fancy Nancy

don't tell Jocie, but Santa will be introducing her to Fancy Nancy this year! I heard about these books from a mom at preschool that told me about her, and I've been enamored by this little girl ever since!

 I just can't decide if it's her fashion sense (reminds me of Wendy B a little) or her most excellent vocabulary I love more....

anywhoo, when I came up with the huge dinosaur pendant I wasn't sure where it's future would be, but I knew someone FABULOUS would get it!  So, for Jocie's preschool friend that introduced us to Ms. Fancy Nancy, happy birthday we hope you adore your new necklace Miss Cailin!

Christmas towels

nothing says Christmas like your name on a towel.... right?  I'm pretty happy with how these turned out... embroidery didn't work and too time consuming anyway... so I improvised.

what? you thought I would tell you how I did it?.... nope not just yet.

a lady needs some mystery.

ps.  dear family and friends, just because you SEE your name, doesn't mean there isn't someone on the other side of the family with the same name.  I guess what I'm sayin is don't get your hopes up.  I only have 30 towels to go around a lot of neked friends and family!
