"Happy Birthday to ME!"

I'm on the left on the birthday stool! I still HAVE that stool!
I am opening a record entitled " Paper Doll"...
"I'm gonna buy a paper doll that I can call my own....
a doll that I can carry everywhere".....AAHHHH!!!!


And to break into song again.......

"It's my birthday and I'll CRAFT if I want to .......CRAFT if I want to......
CRAFT if
I want to...... You would craft too if".........
The wind was blowing and the snow was swirling
and it was TOO cold to get out and go anywhere
and you wanted to stay in and have some FUN
.......and not do housework or any work at all
........and be QUEEN for the
day
and eat delightful goodies and definitely eat dessert first
and maybe even skip
the green veggies altogether.......etc etc etc!
heeheehee!

My hubby says we may brave the slippery roads to go out to eat later
and I do LOVE Papas
and Beer and it is VERY close to our house.
So a Margarita may be waiting for me later....
and hot chips and bean dip and enchiladas with green lime sauce.....
OH MY!
That would be worth getting out on slippery roads!
Wonder if they deliver!

So what have I been working on?

A mouse family.......of course!

Every home needs a mouse family!



There are holiday mice in Florida.....
And colorful mice in NC!
They are so much fun to make! I used a pattern from this lovely site!


Even followed the tuturial....
at "Pimp Stitch" .....
for the most part!
Great for small snippets of fabric and all kinds of trim
could be used.






My husband even plugged in the movie "Babe"
for my inspiration!


Lots of little mice in that movie!





So this is MY FUN day! Wish you could ALL JOIN ME!
We would sing AND eat cake and maybe dance a jig!
Never too old to dance a jig!
Enjoy your day........I know I will!
