Not Me Monday, Birthday Edition

Hi everyone and happy Not Me Monday.
Since my birthday is this week I thought we'd celebrate by discussing what I'm NOT asking for.

Anyone that knows me well, knows two things about me.
Number 1. I grew up saying I would NEVER become a nurse, and I am.
Number 2. That I said I would NEVER want to learn how to sew, and now I do!

For my birthday I have asked for the Brother 350 Sewing and Embroidery Machine...
wait, did you hear it??
The angels were singing!!!
Don't laugh, you know you heard it too. ;>

Now don't get me wrong, I am not about to leave my BFF JJill.
No, I don't intend on making all my own clothes.

Why do I want to sew you ask?

I want to make throw pillows and dust ruffles.
Oh yeah, that's me.
The one who's bedroom is in desperate need of some attention.
Since I can't find what I want, without paying the equivalent of a house payment for it, I will create it!

Yes, with the help of my new "Brother" and a few online tutorials I will become the master crafter.
And yes, said master crafter will share her creations with you.

I have even downloaded the owner's manual and I'm secretly reading up on it.
Go ahead and laugh, but I don't intend on wasting any time!

So, when asked if there's anything I've done that I said I wouldn't, I'll simply reply,
No, Not Me! :)

Happy Not Me Monday!

That sounds like me! :) Me? Be a housewife??? Never! I am going to be a working mom. So yes, I work. At home. But I consider myself a housewife and I love it! :)

I wish you luck in the sewing. I can't wait to see some of your future projects. And happy birthday!
