This picture of Jack has him in his full meet outfit:
This picture was taken in 2006.
Jack doesn't get as much attention from me as my other dolls do, but boy, when my kids and their friends play with my dolls, Jack is one of the first ones chosen.
So, since this is a swap, I'll show you what I received since it arrived before I shipped my box: On my Facebook fan page
Now, while I didn't get pictures of all of the cool little stuff I sent out, I did get pictures of the items I made.
Shortalls (I remembered why I hadn't used this pattern in 10 years, I really wanted overalls)
Football PJ pants upcycled from my husband's old PJ pants
In my other crafty endeavors since my last post, my mother and I paired up to make an Angry Birds themed party for my youngest son.
She made the king pig cake my son requested.
And the birds as cupcakes (the one at the bottom of the picture is green like the pig)
And I had the task of making and filling the piñata
I took it from this...
to this. He wanted a king pig with a mustache, even though it's only one or the other in the game. And this was one tough pig. We had to start off with a kids' baseball bat, and it still took a lot for this pig to fork over the plastic eggs and candy.
I wish the renovations were done on my house. They are for the most part, but there still needs a few things done before it's finished. My sliding glass door needs the trim and shoe molding put on, and the wall that it is on needs repaired from where they were working on the other side of it and cut through. And my living room needs painted.
I came close to a tempter tantrum yesterday since I have so much that I need to get done both in my house and in my sewing area, that it just infuriates me that I can't put my house back together until they get done. And well, they left early on Friday, and I haven't heard anything from them or my landlord since. **sigh**
