Stuff that makes Snails happy

Snails- that's me.

1. This man is so good to me.

The other night I told him that I didn't have time to make dinner, so he would have to make something. He had everything ready when I got home from work- grilled chicken, grilled veggies, cous cous. He even made banana bread... he forgot to put the sugar in... but it's the deed that counts!!

Ok, enough mush.

2. This flower that I made.

You can find the tutorial here.

3. Ric Rac. Where have you been all my life, ric rac?? I just used it for the first time last night. It adds charm and cuteness to anything.

I can't show you this entire picture because it is a gift for someone and I haven't given it to them yet. But this is a sneak peek, and I will show it off later. I LOVE how it turned out.

4. Rounded, pleated pockets. I'm not really sure if I did this right, but I think it is really cute.

Plus, I added ric rac so it makes it 10x cuter.

The pleat makes the pocket a little puffy.

5. Birds on people's shoulders while driving.

Sorry it's a little fuzzy and hard to see. The light literally changed to green as I took this from my car.

Isn't she afraid she'll get pooped on??

6. Twenty-five.

What's so special about the number 25, you ask?
That's the number of violin students I have this year. Twenty-five! That's very good for Snails. And very good for our bank account.

7. My little Sammy is purring on my lap and is making it very hard to type this. No, not a sandwich, my cat Sammy.

What are you happy about today?

**I have no idea why the text all of a sudden went all huge on me. This does not make Snails happy.

As much as I love you, I fear your snails post will become a little repetitive.
