Knee Knickers!

So, I've been busy and haven't really had time to sew. I have, however, had time to watch Lost and play Wii. I guess you see where my priorities are. Anyway, I make these baby leg warmers I call Knee Knickers, but I haven't made any lately.

Isn't Blue adorable? I call this the "Look Ma, no hands!" photo.

I sell them at a consignment store in the big city (not the tiny city where we live in our tiny crackle berry bush) and have been getting lots of calls from the owner saying my supply is dwindling rapidly thanks to the freezing temps, and I need to stock up. So today I am sewing. And sewing. And sewing. And tomorrow I'll be sewing too. I just ordered my labels and will pick them up in an hour. Which reminds me, anyone into digital scrapbooking? I'm not, per say, but it does come in handy when you want to make customized greeting cards...


Or even recipes!

I use the semi-free website Scrapblog for mine, or if you live in the Alphareta, Georgia area you could use my awesome photographer. She does a much better job. But on the cheap, you can use a lot of Scrapblog's templates for free, or buy some inexpensive credits. It's free to export your pages as a jpeg files and they look great just as long as you aren't printing them bigger than a 5x7.
Anywho, Mr. CB is home due to the construction workers at his job puncturing the main gas line! It's going to be the rest of they day before it is repaired. They had to evacuate everyone due to the explosion risk! Since he works on campus at the bookstore, if it blows up school will have to be delayed! I'm not really ready to start the semester yet, but I'm don't want a big crater to engulf the buildings either. UPDATE: Aparently it's not as bad as it seemed. They just opened up the building again. Back to work he goes.
Ok everyone, I need your help! (Way too many exclamation points in this post, I know) We are doing a monster theme for Blues birthday. Nice cute monsters like Grover or Broby from Yo Gabba Gabba. Any help would be appreciated.
Well, it's off to the store than back to the sewing machine. See ya!
