I am very big into family, and I have a big family as well. 5 brothers and sisters (I'm the 5th of 6). 14 nieces and nephews (R Russell Patrick II joined us 10/13/13). 5 great-nephews & 6 great-nieces (Brooklyn Grace joined us 10/2/13). And no, with that many family members, I do not keep up with birthdays very well. Not well at ALL! Even with a master list on my fridge.
I'm also married. My husband and I got married here in San Antonio at the historic Sheraton Gunter Hotel downtown. And we are the proud parents of a 12 year old Alaskan Husky named Moo and three 1 year old kittens: Wicket, Willow, and Winter.
Like all Texas moms, I made my kid pose in the bluebonnets.
I've been tasked with creating a Fiesta Hat. Two actually. Which is awesome because I love arts & crafts! But I am a little nervous because I just don't know if mine will live up to the great and honored tradition of Fiesta Hats which is large and gaudy and awesome!
So here we start. Two hats.
Why yes, that IS my table cloth from Christmas. Thanks for noticing. I probably should have put it away already but I love it and don't feel like it gets enough attention.
And here we are with what happens when you let me loose in Michael's.
I could not get a picture without cats in it. That's Wicket on the left checking out the feathers. Winter's in the middle sniffing the yarn. And over there on the right is Willow's tail. She was already over it.
That receipt is ridiculous! That's why I included it in the picture. I did some serious damage.
And that's where I am right now. I have the ideas and am hoping that they come out as two separate and different hats. I'll keep you posted. I'm on a deadline. Wish me luck!
