look before you leap

well spank my fanny. i can't believe all of the nice words and encouragement i've gotten in the last 24 hours. i have the BEST friends and family. thank you all for your support. for being a fan (this still makes me feel a little funny). it means the world to me. really.

i sound like gene hackman in america's sweethearts (is that the name? the one with jlove?). my dear, sweet mama was worried so she made me and sam some delicious coq au vin. mmmmm.



i had my first real sale yesterday. it made my day. it will be a shower gift for a sweet baby girl. i was given free reign (isn't that amazingly nice) and here is the finished product! i did the entire thing today.



what do you think? i was really happy with how it turned out. the tint is off because it's TEN and i'm a crazy lady.



sam got his first shooting medal today. look how proud he is! it makes me happy to see. i love him.

That dress is the prettiest thing I've ever seen you make. It is so lovely, and even more impressive than most things I see in stores or in any of the closets of the babies I know. I wish all my babes weren't little boys or else I'd try to get all the mamas to buy those dresses! I'll send a picture of it to everyone I know who has a girl, though. I wish you'd set this up before Xmas and I definitely would have bought Aria one! Next holiday for sure. :)

I love you and am so proud of you, your persistence, bravery, and immediate success!

The dress is soooo cute! Do you ever sew for a profit.? I would be a great customer. :).
