Still Recovering

There are not many times in my life that I have felt it was necessary to pull an all nighter. And looking back, none of those times was it at all necessary, or worth the pain of recovery. Oh well, that didn't stop me from doing it again, this time to make Easter dresses for my girls, and of course a matching tie for my boy. "They won't always allow me to dress them in matching clothes", "I still have a few more days to do our taxes", "I really want to feel like a walking zombie for the next few days", these are the excuses I gave my husband as he scolded me yesterday morning.



And of course with all the morning craziness and chocolate binging, there wasn't time for pictures till after church. Thus we have slightly disheveled girls, and the tie had been chocolate smeared and removed by then. Oh well, Sophia felt beautiful and this is the girl's first time being so matchy. Hopefully not their last. Both dresses are my own designs, and were made with a pair of recycled cotton pajama pants and bits of designer fabric. I like how they turned out. zzzzzzz Was it worth it? zzzzzzz

You are an artistic genius, especially when you're sleep-deprived.

Beautiful dresses! Oh... and I got scolded from my husband too for doing something similar. My nephew's birthday party and hosting Easter all in one weekend:) Why is it that we feel compelled to make something for everything? LOL!

totally dude! when you pull an all nighter - it's just proof that you are really LIVING - ya know? That you still have passion pumping through your veins. You have a heart and blood that helps you live and love and.... ok, I'll stop. But remember pulling all nighters in the old days? That was fun. But somehow - it didn't feel as miserable the next day. I hope you ate chocolate to your hearts content the next day and it made you feel better. And really, the dresses are not only adorable for your girls - they are a work of art. And you'll have them for years to come. Good job!!

So darling! I'm sure your girls felt like so pretty and loved. And I'm sure your little man was happy to have a handy hanky. You're so talented. I'm sure your kids appreciate that you use your talents to make their lives more magical. Wonderful, Star! Now get some rest.

Ha! I didn't mean "like so pretty". Hee, hee. I meant just "soooo pretty." I am, after all, a valley girl.

They're soooo beautiful!!!!! I absolutely love them.
I also get scolded by my husband for staying up late making stuff. And... it takes me a few days to recover. So, I've kind of made a new rule. My cutoff time is midnight. The problem is, no matter what time I stop I spend the next hour tossing and turning because I cannot shut off my mind.
I hope you can come Saturday!
