Believe me, it is much more of a jungle now! I made over 150 zucchini muffins yesterday and took them downtown and donated them to our church's inner city Tuesday night dinner and a service program for the local residents. We also donated lots of cucs, tomatoes, jalapenos and some cherry tomatoes for residents to take home. It certainly makes the hard work worth the effort when we are able to help feed hungry people.
I wanted to share two pics of things I made at CHA, they were two of my favorite projects. The first is a darling little T-shirt I made for the grandbabies (they will have to take turns wearing it) ~
Isn't it super cute? The products are offered by SEI, and you can customize your tshirt or other fabric item by using various fabric iron ons. I started with the green monster body and then added the giant eye, the arms, legs, shoes, mouth, tongue, and the band aid. Love this fun new product line. They also have ADORABLE coordinating patterned paper and items that would be great for birthday parties. Love it!
Next, I went to the Silhouette booth over the course of the show (several day project) and made this fab apron for my daughter ~
Isn't it awesome? I cut the saying and scroll out of velvet iron on fabric, and the hot pink butterfly was cut from matte iron on material. The last day we added iron on crystals, using a template already cut out to speed things up. I loved the eaase of use with the Silhouette, I currently have a Klick N Kut and it is a giant patootie pain to use. I have never taken the time to learn how to use it, so really it is my own fault. The software is just pretty extensive and I just haven't taken time to play with it as I should. I love the fact that it and the Silhouette use fonts on your computer, no card purchase required. I may just get a Silhouette though since it seems so much more user friendly to use. It is also a loooooot smaller than the giant klunky Klick N Kut too! :)
Well, I am off to go can some salsa. We used up the 60+ jars we canned last summer (gone before the first of the year, YIKES!). I hope to can quite a bit of salsa this summer too, but we will have to see. I have learned that there are only so many hours in the day....... ;) I have made boatloads of fresh salsa, which disappeared in no time.
Wishing you a joyful and creative week ~ Pam
