Little Ballerina
Sweet Sketch 162-34

Isn't she just the sweetest Little Ballerina?  You can find her at Pattie's Creations.  Pattie's Creations is our sponsor this week at Sweet Sketch Wednesday.  I was so thrilled to have Pattie sponsor us.  Her images are just so delightful.  Be sure to stop by SSW and see the other images that our DT have created with.  You will just adore all of them.  But it doesn't end there so be sure to stop by Pattie's shop and see all the rest of her images! 

Here is little bit about Pattie Gomez: 
I am an Internet Technology Professional and an Artist. I always dreamed of being an artist, but I found out quickly that I needed another field to support my family so I pursued a Degree in Information Technology. I love to use Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator and Fireworks to enhance my work.
I created a character called Pattieboop and her cat named Allie. I have had so much fun coming up with different images so I also created a site to sell them. You can go to my store to find out more about Pattieboop & Allie. I know you will just love them when you see them.
Pattieboop is an 11 year old girl who is very opinionated. She was created by me, Pattie Gomez on September 7, 2009. Pattieboop is an average 11 year old and she loves dressing up. She is very petite in nature but stands tall because her mother always told her that “If you stand tall you will one day become someone important”. Pattieboop always remembers her mother’s words and makes sure she is noticed.
Pattieboop has a favorite pet named Allie. Allie is a slender black cat and loves playing and spending time with Pattieboop. Allie spends most of her days napping and her nights are spent getting in to mischief
Pattie also has a blog at:
 You will enjoy looking around  her blog!

Weaving Loom

How many crafters out there in blogville remember
learning to weave on a simple weaving loom like this and making hot pads? 

This was the craft hit of the week for my 7 year old grand daughter along with the Princess Cake that we made last week.  I was totally amazed at how quickly she learned.  I knew the weaving part would be easy for her but I assumed I would be finishing the egde on each of the hot pads.  No...after the first hot pad she had it down to a science even though she is a lefty.  She made 9 hot pads in all and plans to make more on her next sleepover at Grandma's.  Her little brother was totally occupied by an old train set that I pulled out of the attic. 

9 Hot pads in about four hours!!!!
Her summery little bandana is from Girl Scouts!

She also made a snowman out of play dough and
put together her little necklace from Joann's dollar bins. 
Love those dollar bin items!!!

Happy Fourth of July!
Enjoy your week!
