It's a pillow, no its a sham, no IT'S A RICE the rescue

So for some time I have had "neck pain" more so muscle pain, from the way I hold the phone at work, at least this is what I think the pain is from. As a child I remember my mom always having a rice bag to heat up in the microwave for when we were in pain, instead of a hot soak that made you wet and didn't stay hot for very long we always used a rice bag, I decided to make one and I am going to share pictures of this with you. I haven't crafted in a while and hopefully this gets me back into the groove of things!

First I cut strips of this blue fabric and ruffled them. Then I pinned them to the pink fabric.

Then I sewed the ruffles on

I just really liked this picture

After I sewed on the ruffle i sew up the side filled the bag with rice sew up the end and now heat and enjoy!!!

Where have I been?!?!?!?!?!

I have been here, just have not made the time to blog/edit/take pictures. Last week I never made it out to Thrifty Thursdays shopping spree BUT I did yesterday and I did more then just thrift store shopping. at the thrift store I did buy more fabric only spent 15 dollars and got a lot of stuff (I will update this post or do another one with pictures this weekend) I also went to the mall and did some sale shopping I got my lover a pair of sneakers and I got myself a pair of flats, flip flops, and also a pair of wedged high sandals (that are so cute). Then I stopped into a store called Rainbow, it is closing and everything is super cute! I got I think it was 6 long sleeved thermal shirts, two very cute flirty dresses and three tank tops for a whooping $45.00! Tonight we are going to go see Suicidal Tendencies with a large group of friends! I am exciting!

My New Logo pt. 2

I finished Photoshopping my logo! I am very pleased with how it had turned out!

I love it what do you all you faithful followers think?

Below is a picture with my new logo on it. I do not have any current project pictures so I figured I would share a picture from my Hawaii trip back in March. Me and my love in front  of Bubba Gump Shrimp Co. a restaurant in Kona Hawaii.

The One and Only,

My Logo...

You know that thing, everyone puts it on their own pictures so that no one else can call your work theirs? I have one I have been using, i spent little time and just made it in Photoshop with only text though. I am not in love with it. I could have spent more time on it, make it look better, just didn't have make the time for it. I was doodling today (usually thank means i just write my name a bunch of different ways.) and I think I have designed what will be my new Logo that I put on all my pictures, once I Photoshop the lines to make it more crisp and probably Photoshop some color in there. Let me know what you guys think though this is what I came up with today.

*please note I cleaned up the image a LITTLE bit with paint but the computer I am currently on does not have Photoshop

The One and Only,

What others have been up too :)

So I have not made the time to take pictures of any of the things I have been doing crafty wise, (plus i have been organizing my craft room which is taking longer then I thought it would) so I figured I would show some projects other people have been doing.

So at Blog a la Cart she had recently made a really cool lamp. You can see how she made it here.

Over at Sew Selena she had made a purse from two skirts. You can visit her blog here.

At the Corner House, they had a circus themed birthday party that you can check out here. 

At Embracing Change she redid a piece of furniture and turned it into the picture below and you can see her blog here .

Everyone should check out these awesome blogs! I follow them all and so many others. These ones were chosen at random and I am thinking of picking random people I follow to blog about each Wednesday to show what other people have been up to recently.

And just a tiny update about yours truly! I went blond a few weeks ago BUT it was more blond and kinda really brassy orange so I had went back to my cousins, cousin so she could fix it!



My hair is now the color I had wanted it to be I am a Happy Happy Girl! :)
