ok- so- here i am- to celebrate my mama! it's her birthday today and i just wanted to share with you some of my favorite pictures of her and my pops. (they were the team that made me ya' know...) :) i called her early in the morning with cutie to sing a duet of the birthday song- we were the first callers of the day and with our incredible singing voices (ahem!) i'm sure we made her morning! :)
i love the first pic of my mama (born juana colombia novoa-alvarado)- the way she's just lounging around and the expression on her face is just so perfect casual cool. hehehhe. :) the 2nd picture is of my mama and pops - hehehe- i think he looks a like such a a little boy in this pic. :) both pictures were taken on their honeymoon. which made my mama a tender 19 years old. :)
these pics are also gorgeous of my parents i think! i actually have these on our wall- soon to be in our new craft room! :) my mama and pops dressed as primitaive cave people... scary!!! i love my moms eyes in this pic! the 2nd pic was them looking superb of course near christmas time. :) i want to find a silver tree just like that for christmas! :) so to my mama, i want to wish a fabulous, spectacular happy birthday and 100 more to come! :) i love you, i love you, i love you! :)
and well- here we are back in bloggy world and and out of the dizzying world of love i have for my mama- ehhehe. :)
(hard at work for diddly!)
ok- so i did not just completely ditch my dress- but here i am- (pics were taken this morning- so do excuse my jammies and my mess of hair.) so i draped and made a pattern for the skirt... which was a big mistake- cos duh! after i made my pattern- i remembered i couldn't use this pattern for this dress- as the print has a stripe border at the end- and i should've gone with the skirt that i had originally already sewn for the mock- up! aRrrrgh! there was obviously a reason why i had draped it the way i originally did for the mock-up! i should learn to trust my first instincts! it would've saved me a lot of time! now i have to make another mock-up as i think i tossed the original one out- cos i had the clever idea of making a different skirt... argh... mhrgehvenri!
to end this post- i will leave you with my mommy frolicking in the snow. :) happy birthday- i love you!!! xoxoxo
