So, I've been mia lately because I have NO LIFE other than sewing, work, sewing, Oahu....what's that? Oahu? Yes! I'm heading there soon! But for kicks, here's the Halloween madness I was part of.......Marilyn, Lady GaGa and Jem. Oh yes, JEM. And I can't figure out why the photo sucks. omg the green outfit on Fergie right now? Sweetness.

It will bring you to the call in page and you can also help out by donating.
There was a protest against the flu shots at the capitol the other day but after a paycheck screw up I didn't have all the extra cash hanging around to waste half a tank of gas to drive there and protest myself. I just hope something changes, but I doubt it. It's bullshit.
This week is the week of action for the REAL Act, which is for comprehensive sex education. What that means is that teens should get all the correct information on their bodies, sex and sexuality so that they are able to make good decisions on their own. Many schools do only abstinence only and we all know how well that works! Heck, even Texas (I know, TX?) says it doesn't work! So this is our week to let everyone know what teens in schools need. More information can be found here http://www.plannedparenthood.org/key-issues/fighting-real-sex-ed-25939.htm
I'll be out today in my hot pink tshirt with silver sparkle SEX ED protecting our future on the front. Oh, and I'll be at the fabric shop getting MORE hot pink and pale pink satin for more Jem costumes. I think I'm making Pizzazz today too, w00t.

Your hair looks fantastic today! You must have a new stylist because it's got some more body than prior shows and there's a hint that a curling iron was used. Anyho- broadcast in HD would you!?!

I ordered this pattern off of etsy yesterday to whip up some cute Libby inspired dresses to go with some sew on gems and vintage cotton lace. I think Amy Butler prints will work out best, or some other vintage sheets I've got laying around. Maybe I'll get to them after the 4 Jem dresses, Queen of Hearts, Tron, two wedding dresses and the Red Riding Hood costume....who needs sleep? Not me.

Today I'm working on a couple of Jem costumes that sold in my etsy shop. Should be an easy task as I sized up the pattern I made up for it last night. What I'm finding hard is finding time to create items for the holiday sales I'm doing in November and December. I also have no interest in making anything that I've made in the past other than fascinators. And hair flowers alone will not pay for that holiday I'd rather forget and not bother with at all. Sigh. I'm a downer today, hopefully that will change with more coffee and a shower.

So, I've been rehauling my make up bag, buying organic EVERYTHING at the grocery store and basically going a little batty.
I hope to be up and running sewing wise again soon........

So a while back I wrote an email letter to Dritz about the hook and eye packages they sell. At one point when you purchased a package of nickel hooks and eyes you were able to use the whole package because there were even numbers of eyes to hooks. Not so much anymore, andI've been to 4 JoAnn's to see if maybe it was just my closest store or what. Now each package you buy, unless you purchase white ones, you are screwed out of half the eyes. Instead, you get flat eyes that are USELESS really to me and I'm sure other dressmakers who use them to finish off a zipper closure in back. I wrote a letter asking if I could send all the useless flat ones back in exchange for the curved eyes. I don't think they understood, or got my sarcasm that I really wanted to send back over 100 flat eyes for the other. Either that or no one really reads the comments or questions that someone sends them and they are just being aholes about it.
Also today I baked what might be the worst looking cupcakes in the world. This was after I overcooked lentils for a salad (hot squishy mess now) AND effed up my bangs to be some weird shade of pink instead of HOT pink on the tips. Now, it looks like Barbie hair when you tried to color her hair when you were little with Crayola markers. The cupcakes overflowed out of their cups and all over the pans and have dents in them and I'm going to do my best tomorrow to fill them in with frosting so no one notices. And, AND freakin fattie cat is being a total jerk and not eating his food because the antibiotics is in it. Nice. My night had better be good.
Project Runway was ok last night, I'm not into pregnancy or designing for it really. Not really sad to see 'chicken thigh egg boy' go away, maybe he should contact Bjork? I do like her, but I think she's got the 'conceptualism' he's into. I have no clue who's going to win at this point, but am seriously thinking of trying out the next time around. Because the world needs ONE MORE vintage inspired designer, right? Right.

I'm now watching another recorded Martha re-run and will again give my plea.
Dear Martha, I hope your new season is in HD. It would make that $10 salad so much better. Well, not really. But it would make watching your show so much better. Hugs, Jill
I don't have anything else to post on sewing today, or kittens, or cupcakes.......wait I do! I had a great cupcake from The Bread Basket Bakery in Saratoga last night. http://www.saratogabreadbasket.com/
It was fabulous- dark chocolate filled with black cherry goo and topped with super yum kinda cream cheesy frosting and had cinnamon somewhere in there and a chocolate 'S' for Saratoga. It was fantastic, I wish I had a photo. Much better than other cupcakes I've had in town, and I'm inspired to put cherry goodness in the cupcakes I'm baking tomorrow for a little girl birthday party.

And of course super sweet tattoos that my friend does because I love her to death, and cupcakes...and kittens....and feminist views that I feel the world just needs to know and be pissed off about as well. Fabulous.
