The Dang it Doll.....

I got a kick out of this....everyone needs to make this on those relatively bad days!
Here is the link The damn it doll So here are the instructions:
These make great little Damn It Dolls for stressful people!

They can be thrown, jabbed, stomped and even strangled till all the frustration leaves you.

Attach the little poem to go with it:

When you want to kick the desk or
throw the phone and shout.
Here's a little damnit doll
you cannot do without.
Just grasp it firmly by the legs,
and find a place to slam it.
And as you whack it's stuffing out,
yell, "damnit, damnit, damnit!"


You need to create a basic doll shape and cut it out of fabric, you can use any color fabric you want, but if you intend on adding facial features you will need to keep the fabric light.

Cut out 2 body shapes and sew around the edges.

Turn the doll the right side out and using a pen push out any edges in the hands and legs till it is all turned the right side out.Then using your toy filling stuff the doll from the leg's up remembering to keep it firm enough so you can write against it. Keep filling the doll till you reach the head, then using some glue or a few hand stitches close up the head.

Use your waterproof felt pens to draw on some facial features and glue on the hair along the head seam. You can add as much or as little detail as you want to your doll.

Basic Printable Pattern, you will need to re-size this pattern to suit your needs.
I'll make me one soon.....

Memories From the Attic July Card Kit

I can't tell you how excited I was to finally start working with Memories from the Attic Card Kits. I've typically been a scrap designer, so, being a card designer was a little out of the box for me! I was excited to finally get the kit and let me say it is a fabulous kit with Cosmo Cricket- Sunshine! I loved the little penguin stamps! There is enough paper and cardstock to make at least 8 cards! The great think about MFTA kits is that you can also use some of your own products to accent! To order the kit click Here
Here is the picture of the kit and a few cards that I made for it!

1ST Anual Mother Appreciation Day

This morning I woke up to the most thoughtful thing a mother could wake up too! The First Annual Mother Appreciation Day! I was given my usual breakfast, but this time- In bed! Well they couldn't use the coffee pot but they did make me tea.....but I believe that makes me happy! Here are some pics of the event..... I'll think I will scrapbook them later to just make me feel even more happy!Oh and by the way I made my own cup of Joe because this wakes me up....there was allot of kisses and hugs this morning from 2 beautiful, smart and inventive children. That right there just in itself makes me happy to be their, Mommie!
