bear with me…

…as I try and make it through the next few weeks.
I’m going to make my mom attempt to make this fabric:

into a version of this dress:
(I don’t remember where I found this image, sorry! if you do, let me know)
It’s going to be Sadie’s flower girl dress for my sister’s wedding. Only with a dark teal fabric for the waist. (Joanna, do you like it?) I also want to make Charlotte a dress, so here’s hoping there’s enough material left to do something simple for her.
Also on my to do list:
*hem my bridesmaid dress
*go shopping for lingerie to embarrass Joanna with party stuff
*throw Sadie’s birthday party (which has it’s very own large to do list)
*get my sister and her soon to be hubby a thoughtful, awesome gift. (ok, it’ll probably be a gift card. that way, THEY can do the thinking…see how lazy smart I am?)
*finish the planning/shopping/setting up for my sister’s bridal shower
*throw said shower
*revel in glory of shower not going down in flames
*help with Joanna and Cody’s wedding
*write a memorable and awesome wedding toast
*go to Joanna and Cody’s wedding, dance booty off at reception. (assuming kidlets will let me)
*attempt a 12 hour drive to Utah with two kidlets
*attempt said trip in an RV with the rest of my family….for 6 days. (ok, we will be renting a car once we get there, but still)
*attempt to keep my sanity somewhat intact.
So, posting may be spotty in the coming weeks, because as you can see, August is a BUSY month for us. I can’t wait though!

Also, I’ve had some emails saying people have been using my tutorials. SAH-weet! Can I just say that gives me a big ol’ cheesy grin every time I get one of those emails? I just wanted to remind ya’ll that I have a flickr group, and if you want to upload pictures of your projects there, well, that’d be just nifty.

There’s a linky button on the right side bar, or if you’re lazy like me…here ya go.
