I don't know which it is but I know I LOVE it! I was very inspired by the Sailor Jerry images and so I asked my wonderful artist friend Kristin to draw this up so I could stencil it on a shirt. Well she drew it up and I looked at it was too intimidated to cut it out for fear of messing it up.
Kristin has now been showing me up with her freezer paper stenciled creations that she went ahead and cut the stencil out for me. I painted it on using fabric paint and she touched it up since she has a much steadier hand than I! I love how the paint is thin in some spots letting the gray show through giving it a worn look. I love this so much I am afraid to wear it now!!!
Thank you Kristin for lending your artistic skills to this for me. Oh who am I kididng thank you Kristin for doing this for me!

I love Harry Potter. The books are one of my favorite series and ones that I could read over and over again. Well actually that I HAVE read over and over again. The magical world Harry and his friends live in is truly magical and has opened my imagination time and time again.
I got the idea for this pendant for a friends birthday and decided to also make one for a partner in a swap. I purchased dollhouse sized Harry books, poked a hole in them, sealed them and added a jump ring. Each person received a pendant made from their favorite book in the series. They both also got a pair of golden snitch earrings which I have seen around on peoples wists and Etsy.
Around 5:30 she is still complaining that her stomach hurts. I asked her to lay down and show me where on her tummy it hurt. She pointed to the right side. I asked if it hurt anywhere else and she said no. Uh Oh! I am still unsure of what to do. I don't want to sit in the ER for 6-8 hours on top of the ridiculous co-pay and be told it's nothing but what if it really is something??
I decided to call my dad who is a nurse for some advice. He tells me that if I am concerned enough to call him then I should take her in. Better safe than sorry and if it is something and it gets worse I am going to end up in the ER with her anyway. Better now than at 3AM.
On Tuesday Adia was doing well, she could walk around a bit, was taking in fluids, and eating a bit so we got sent home. I was glad to be out of the hospital but I know she enjoyed all the attention!
