Just Couldn't Wait to Brag

Okay, so I realize this will absolutely vaporize any and all coolness cred I may have amassed thus far in my entire life (and possibly negate any in the future too) but I'm too excited at the moment to care.

Plus you all love me and will tell me I'm awesome even if you're secretly thinking I'm a dork . . . right? Guys? Right?

Anyway. I have completed . . . Dun da da DUN!!!!!!! . . . Phase 1 of my Project for the Rest of My Life!!! Yay!!!!!!! Please note, I bought these babies (err . . . bibs . . . last time I checked you couldn't legally buy babies . . . ) on New Year's Day and finished the last stitch on the last one less than an hour ago. Go ahead, feel free to ooh and ahh. I'm pretty impressed with myself too. And I've watched every last episode of Phineas and Ferb available on Netflix. Oh, how I adore Netflix streaming!! (Does the P&F on the weekends cancel out the Wheel and Jeopardy during the week? Thereby making me the equivalent of . . . ummmmm . . . my actual age?)

Anyway. TA DA!!!!

For a little perspective . . . and don't you just love my hastily created photo shoot background consisting of a fluffy blanket thrown over our ugly hotel decor reject armchair?

Ready for the close ups!

You would not believe how long those tiny little flowers took. And don't even get me started on the butterflies!

This would be the one for which I ran out of floss and had to order more . . . obnoxious! Good thing this company sends more for free!!

Isn't he cute?! These two took about half the time of the first two. I'm thinking it was the lack of butterflies. They look great but the birds were MUCH simpler!

And the grand finale . . . like I said, this little guy hasn't even been finished for an hour. He might be my favorite.

I kind of don't want to give them away, but at the same time I could never keep them because all I can see are the little flaws that always pop up on projects like this. I suppose this gives them some sort of one of a kind charm or something. How much do you think I could get on Etsy?

On the other hand, I'm not sure I could ever feel good about selling things on a site that also sells things like this. (Warning: sometimes NSFW . . . a.k.a., Grandma and Grandpa - don't touch that link.)

Anyway . . . actually, that's pretty much all. Feel free to shower me with validations. Or mock my un-hip-ness. Whichever you feel like today. :-)

P. ost S. cript
This is why I love Weird Al. You know you're a star when a sold out stadium cheers for literally ANYTHING you do.


  1. They've got some awesome stuff that I would love to have, don't get me wrong. But did you look at the link? Great merciful CRAP . . .

  2. I did, but I say you can find crazy anywhere. So I still love etsy.

  3. okay, this is amazing! :) I love the hippo...
