So they kinda had their own little hatchery going... and so a present is born!
Check out this adorable hat I made today from the Japanese pattern magazine Female Autumn 2005. I love hats and hate that they are not very popular to wear around here... I've decided I'm going to wear them anyways... they are just to cute of an accessory to be ignored!
I tried making a hat today from a Vogue pattern that turned out hideous! I followed the directions to a T!!! But it was still so off! It looked crazy!
And here, I made a hat from a magazine with no English directions that turned out perfect...

There will be 15 teams there today. We will probably be there until around 4. Wrestlers like to make their meets an "event" anytime they can.... usually lasting half a day.... but with so many
teams its an all day thing today.
Just last week Brian told me I didn't "care" about him.... yet here I am, up at 5:30, with a really
horrible cold (that kept me outta work last night, no one wants to see a snotty, sneezing bellydancer!) me and his step dad, the Bald Man, getting ready to drive an hour,
with all the food I cooked yesterday for us (rotisserie chicken salad, salt potatoes, fresh bread, brownies) set all day and watch middle schoolers beat the crap outta each other.... (okay I admit I like to watch the matches!!)
And I don't "care" about him.......... what a bratty teenager moment that was!
It took me back to when I was a bratty teenager, telling my mom she didn't love me because she wouldn't let me have my way on this or that. Poor mom...

Spring 2008 is just around the corner for fashion designers. I'm thinking this make-up look to the left is what I need for New Years though!!!
The outfit to the right is from Versace RTW Spring 2008. Normally I don't do shorts. I find them pretty boring but I am liking these alot. I think I can find a pattern to make a close copy...
I'm also in love with this take on a wrap top and wondering how I could modify one of my many wrap top patterns to get this look.
Most of Versace's RTW Spring 2008 line was hot! Check it out on style.com.

And on top of that... my poor poodle babies got 'fixed' yesterday. Be'Be' is fine, you'd never know she had surgery.... but 2 Pac is terrible!!! Whining and crying.... he's breaking my heart.
I took him back to Dr. Sarah today, who said he's fine, he's just 'working it'....
but he's a BABY!!!! More important... he's MY baby!!

Ok! I didn't mean to start this costume. I meant to finish my Fire costume first but...I needed to make a 'muslin' for my holiday skirt though... and I thought I would make it out of this beautiful stretch velvet fabric I got from Gail K's back in the summer... and so a costume is born!!!! Just check out the color combos on this. I'm styling it after a Sahar costume.

Last night was long!!!! and it did get alittle wild... there were times I felt like I needed to duck and cover when the people in the picture on the left started doing their debka dance.... I was afraid I was gonna get kicked! Then later the poor hookah boy told me he DID get kicked! Ouch! It was a very fun night!! I think everyone that came in had a blast! Sam took so many pictures, Tony was up drumming and making people get up to dance.... which wasn't hard to do last night! There were so many people up dancing ALL night. I am SO tired from all the dancing I did Fri and Sat..... and kinda sore honestly.
