The Dress

Soooo... these aren't professional snazzy shoot kind of pictures like I was hoping for. But they are snap shots my mama took, and they are all I have. Here's how the easter dress turned out:

And here are some details taken during the construction preocess:

In my plans and in my mind there was going to be a fancy photo shoot of me frolic-ing about in my custom frock enjoying spring time and easter. It was going to be a great glorius and grand reveal. But picutres never really happened... and then i got distracted by other things and I have been under the weather for a while, and i figure, I should at some point pu up some pics even if it wasn't the shining moment I planned it to be.

So here is the not-shiny reveal of the dress that I made, and loved, and spilled Jello on, but am still very proud of even if there aren't fancy pictures.

So, what?

So I've not posted for several weeks.
So, what?
What are you going to do about it? Unfriend me? Stop following my blog?
(okay, actually, some of you did that.)
Look, I'm not dead, and I'm not giving up on the blog... I just have been working on... a big project recently. One that is not quite blog ready.
When it is, you'll be the first to know.
I promise.
And the dress? I finished it. I wore it. I loved it. I never took pictures of it.
I spilled strawberry jello down the front of it.
I don't know how to photoshop strawberry jello off a dress yet.
Also, anyone want to buy me photoshop?

I made a really pretty cake the other day.
It looked amazing.
It promised to be delicious with all it's choclate-y, coconut, and almond-ness.
And it looked pretty. Really Pretty.
I was so proud.
It tasted beige. It tasted REALLY beige.
I was so disappointed.
Also Mother's Day is coming up.
And my life has gone into handmade creative explosion mode over the past year... so why wouldn't I make something lovely for my mom?
Only I can't think of one lovely handmade thing I should make???
Any ideas?
I have... creative block?

So you see? You see how It's been a month of creative fails for me?
So aren't you glad to know you aren't the only one that has those?
And so, what if it has been?
So, what? April? You hear me? Creative fail month? You are over.
So it's May now.
Meaning things May or May not happen.
heh heh. (I'm terribly witty)
