Hi you have landed yourself at my blog, Mechelle Hyatt. I am a stay at home mom to three great kids, a wife to one great husband, I am a junk store fan and I love to sew. I didn't learn to sew at my grandmas knees! My husband bought me a sewing machine for my b-day one year. It sat in my closet for almost 3 years before I had the time & nerve to drag it out. It took me a long time to just figure out how to thread the needle, and when the bobbin ran out I simply put the sewing machine away for a few months until my neighbor showed me how to fix that problem..I had no idea they made some already done for you :) So after that I taught myself to sew through a lot of trial and errors and tears! I found that one can not have too many seam rippers!!!
You can find my handsewn item here on my blog at the top of the page, and also my crafty re-makes of things discarded. I also sell on etsy as well. My etsy name is: pinkdaisys.
So I hope you will enjoy reading my blog as I talk about my daily life, and all the great things I find and share with you. I love hearing your comments, so be sure to leave one before you leave. Thanks for stopping by.
Need Help Fast.. Twelve Days of Christmas Ideas!!!
OK So I really need some help from all you creative people out there! A few years ago a very Dear friend of mine, lost her daughter to Cystis Fibrois, she was 7 years old, and her name was Tess. Tess and her family LOVED to Ding Dong Ditch people and every Christmas their family would choose a family to Ding Dong Ditch.. the year she passed away they choose us. I have to tell you they are Good at it.. I had NO idea who it was and I even ran into her and her kids at krogers while they were buying stuff to leave on my porch! Can you say "too much hair color?" Geez.. anywho... It was a lot of fun and we finally figured it out the last night. My kids would wait and try to catch them, but we never did.. like I said they are good!!!
So we have adopted this idea in honor of Tess and in honor her family as well. Really you should try it, it will make your whole holiday, I promise!
So my dilema? I need some ideas on what to leave.. I had it all stored on my old computer which died.. and I am trying to remember.. I need help with the following days:
3 french hens, 4 Calling birds, 7 swans a swimming, 9 ??? (can't remember that one) 10 lords a leaping, 11 pipers piping and 12 drummers drumming.. So I need a lot of help.. but to give you an example.. I am doing things like Pears and a small tree for day 1 and Turtle candy and Dove Chocolate for day 2, A jar of pineapple rings for day 5.. So you see where I am going.. Just a fun thing they can either play with or eat.. So come on.. Help me out here.. I promise to post it all here and why don't you join me.. I'm sure you know of someone who could use some Holiday cheer and excitement.. I promise it will be the best gift you give yourself this year! Thank you! Oh, and don't forget to scroll down and enter my give away.. it ends Wednesday night! Mechelle
