Changes plus Macgyver…

If you’ve been following me on Facebook…then you might have seen some of the changes I’ve made recently to Jacks & Kate. You might have noticed my new logo…I adore it! This blog is getting an update as well. Stay tuned for that!

 

You’ve probably been seeing a lot of new items…

Truth is…I needed a change.  If I was to continue sewing…I had to do something different. I just couldn’t sit down one more time and make the same thing 20 times over and over. For the first time in a really long time…I’m actually excited about sewing. I hope you’ll continue to hang around and see where this new journey takes Jacks & Kate.

Now…for something completely unrelated… Savannah…aka Macgyver rigged my filing cabinet again this morning. Her retaliation on me…for making her give a toy back to her sister. Hopefully…she skipped the explosives.

 

This is Thriller…

I don’t know about you…but as a busy Mom of 3, I’m always looking for those extra time savers to get me through the day. So…when I stumbled across this “Thriller” cheat sheet on Pinterest…I immediately thought…”This is the best pin ever!!!” No..wait…”Pin now…read later!!”…or was it..”THIS IS GENIUS!!!!” 

What’s perfect about this…is it’s portability.  No more saying…”Damn! I wish there were a way to bring Thriller with me!” You never have to leave home without your moves again. It’s small enough to put in your pocket…your wallet…clip it to a lanyard for instant accessibility. I could be at the ball field cheering Jacks on…chasing Savannah and Annie around…planning a crockpot meal in my head…AND I can still Thriller. Sings: Time Saver!!  The best part is…once you start the sequence….all the other parents join in…they know exactly what count to pick up their move…because…that’s how it’s done in the movies.

The only thing that could possibly top this… would be a companion…”Time of my life” card…circa Dirty Dancing. Yep. I could totally do that lift…but…could my husband do that little Johnny jack knife move off the stage? He could probably get air…especially if he was wearing his Dad shorts.

Thriller…it’s not just for the Phillipino inmates any longer.
