It’s My Birthday!!

Jun 9, 2014 | Other | 8 comments

Hi All!!

I’m super excited because today is my BIRTHDAY!! YAY I’m 23!!- so about halfway to becoming the crazy cat lady I am destined to be!

I also wanted to say sorry for my entire lack of posting last week! Things have just been really crazy busy, with friends, working and lots of sewing!

One of the things keeping me busy was my birthday dinner at the Grandparents!

Which of course means steak and lots of wine!


And of course cake! and don’t be mislead by the candles, I am indeed turning 23 not 8 lol.

 Sisters picture!

nomnomnomnomnom – this is the lightest and most delicious cake ever- aren’t grandma’s the best!

So besides eating my weight in cake, I have also been sewing up a storm, although not very much for myself. Mostly top secret projects for Bev– and I also whipped out another Islander Jacket for my grandma, who after seeing mine, promptly said “I want it!”. I only have the buttonholes left so it is pretty much finished:

You can see the similarity to mine lol- jacket twinsies!

I also have a number of posts planned coming up:

Like the mystery behind the blue leather in this sneak peak from forever ago:

The tutorial I promised on this necklace I wore for MMMay14:

An interesting way to use these fabric makers:

A hair dyeing tutorial on my new hair look! sneak peak!

And finally a new bathing suit- that I’m aiming to have finished for a my birthday party being thrown this Friday! which I will say nothing about other than.. sheer… white.. and chevron.. that is all 🙂

Lastly, but perhaps most importantly I would like to say a HUGE THANK YOU to everyone reading this!

This year has been so overwhelming for me, I have to say that at the start of being 22 I felt really lost, fresh out of school, no job, didn’t know where I was going next. Then I started this blog in October for something to do, to keep track of all my creative endeavors and hopefully join the lovely sewing community, I didn’t really think it would go anywhere or that anyone would really read or follow, and now I have over 100 followers!!?! OMFG!?

Blogging gave me so much motivation and inspiration- I pushed myself even further with my sewing when I took Beverly’s course this March, and again with my mom this May– and now, not only am I doing what I love and being creative, I have a job in it!! I feel like things are finally coming together, and as such an inspiring and lovely online community I really have to give my thanks out to everyone that makes this community so great- so thank you, for really turning my year around and making 22 one of the best years I can remember!

Now on to 23, which I have a feeling will be even better!

    I'm probably not your target audience-quite an age gap here!- but I do enjoy reading of your adventures and your pleasant family life.
    Keep up the good work, and Happy BD to you too.

    • EmeraldErin

      Aww thanks so much!! I don't think that I have a specific target audience, more just anyone who likes sewing, food and creative stuff- so thanks for reading! 🙂
