I punched lots of circles from 6 different patterns, in 3 different sizes to make up the border across the top. Then I hand-stitched something on almost all of them using Honeydew twine from The Twinery. Close up of the stitching:
I also hand-stitched the little "flags" onto each photo using the twine:
The title is done with raw chipboard letters from Basic Grey. She named her Hello Kitty "Kai Lan" after the TV Show, "Ni Hao, Kai Lan!" because they both are done with similar animation, so she thought they went together =)
Thanks for stopping by!

I figured 3 months is more than enough time to get my, ah-hem, booty in gear and be in good enough shape to pull it off - as long as I start right away. So what happens? The next day I get sick. Now two weeks have come and gone and I finally feel I can breathe well enough to start running today. I must say, I did better than I expected, but I have a lot of work to do before our big race. I'm really hoping this helps me learn to love to run, because that is something I've always wished I was able to do.
So wish us luck, I have 10 weeks of training left and I survived Day 1!

Once it was time to think of a name, I stressed a little. I'm the girl that took up until it was time to leave the hospital to name my daughter. I don't eat beef or pork, and I'll still take 30 minutes to decide which chicken dish I'll eat at a restaurant. I needed something that was obviously me, but I could use for any aspect of my life. Then it hit me. EVERY time I give me name, I have to correct the person I give it to, can't get more personal than that! So now here you are, "Jennie with an I-E."
I hope you enjoy my ramblings and photos and visit often!
(yes, Jennie - like Jenny, but with an I-E)
