My husband Troy graduated from Frederick Community College yesterday! I am still on cloud 9. I couldn't be prouder of him. This is his mother hugging him. She was so very proud. She said that she never thought she'd see the day. This was her child that she would drop off at the front door & he'd leave out the back door of the school. He never finished high school, but got his GED (good enough diploma, haha). He also went to drafting school & completed that, but has long dreamed of getting his college degree. Well, the day has finally come! He received his AA in General Studies & will be on his way to his BA in Construction Management starting this summer. After starting & quitting college for years, at 39 years old he did it! Way to go baby!
I will be back at Madewell Jeans in Tyson's Corner, VA this Thursday May 5th hand embroidering denim. It was so much fun last time. Come by if you are in the area & say hi & get some really cute jeans!
Erica of Erica Burns Designs & Shayne of Novelty Kitten, both DC Craft Mafia members, will be taking part in Denim After Dark with Madewell 1937. Madewell is hip collection of women's clothing from the same people that bring us J Crew. I will be at the Tyson's Corner Madewell store from 7-9PM & Shayne will be at the Annapolis store from 7-9PM. All of this takes place on Thursday, March 5th so come out & let us tag your initials on your jeans! Sweet!
The cold, snowy weather makes me want to knit! Maybe it is just me, but there is so comforting about sitting in my warm house watching the snow while I knit up something warm! Currently, I am working on a bunch of knitted projects to sell at Crafts & Kisses. Moira from Bookish Lady put this show on last year & it was awesome! She is doing it again in 2009 on February 8 from 11-7 at the Josephine Butler Parks Center, 2437 Fifteenth Street, NW Washington, DC.
I see my last post was back in September! That is just plan pitiful! I will try to do much much better. I have a lot to say. I suppose I should take the time to say it, here. Well, an update. The Redskins blew the rest of the season. They went 8-8. Didn't make the playoffs. They really blew it. The Super Bowl is next Sunday. I love football, so I am excited about it. Steelers vs. Cardinals. Who would have thought the Cardinals would have been in the Super Bowl this year? I think the Steelers are the better team, but you never know what may happen. Last year the Giants beat the undefeated Patriots. The one Redskins game I went to this year was vs. the Cardinals & we actually won! Well it is late. I have 6 hours of sleep if I go to bed now. So nighty night!
Erica Burns Designs is a run solely by me in Maryland. I create everything in my in home craft studio by hand, one at a time! I started making jewelry as a creative outlet several years ago. I have since branched out to accessories, clothing & housewares.
This is my blog about my crafty adventures & more often then not, my everyday life!
