Why the name missbossypants, you ask? Well, it goes back to my roots.... my maiden name is Bos - a good old dutch name. I've been accused of being a little bit bossy in nature, and I'm not about to dispute the fact! I sometimes tell people my crafty "alter ego" is a tribute to my daughter, who is a lot like her mother in the bossy characteristic! Thanks for visiting missbossypants!

I'M A WEINER!!! um, er, I mean WINNER!!!

Remember the SewMamaSew Giveaway day in May? I sure do - and so does my blog! My hitcounter went THROUGH THE ROOF that day. It sure was fun visiting all the other 5 million blogs and entering their giveaways - it took me 3 days to get through them all!

Now, I'm not really the luckiest person around when it comes to giveaways. I won a crockpot once from our local health unit - that was pretty cool - but other than that, the winning just isn't in me (if only it was - I'd play the lottery!)
Well, time to buy a lottery ticket..... I WON SOMETHING!!! I am the lucky recipient of these gorgeous lovelies from Paloma at Three Kitchen Fairies.

A super-cute pincushion!!! This is not the exact one I got, but it's similar. Mine has a couple different fabrics, a red flower, and different buttons.

And .pdf embroidery patterns!!! These cupcakes are so cute! I've never done embroidery before, but, hey, it can't be that hard, right? (tee hee, like I need another hobby!) I can just imagine one of these cupcakes on the front of a cute little dress for my niece (who has an unofficial nickname of "cupcake" from all the Gymboree her mom dressed her in!!!)

Check out Paloma's goodies on her etsy shop here at Three Kitchen Fairies on Etsy

Thanks Paloma!!!! My daughter is so excited that I won a new pin cushion, she thinks I'll give her the old, ugly tomato one now. We'll see.... somehow I don't think a six year old should have any use for straight pins!

A little side note for all of you: Mac and I are off and away this weekend to his cousin's wedding. I'm "coming out" as a sewist this weekend - I'm planning on wearing a dress that I MADE - IN PUBLIC!!! Ok, I shouldn't be so worried - I've worn a few of my creations lately in public, just not at such an important event. It'll be fine - the seams won't rip and the garment won't fall off me on the dancefloor..... I hope.

Pics to come after the weekend!
