Now that I’m officially retired. I’m obsessed with something other than blogging. Well, it still includes blogging. I’ve been stalking all sorts of blogs about sewing, crafting and home decorating. I have to tell you, much like Lisa at One Hip Mom, I’ve been stalking Vanessa for a very, very long time.

I want to be Vanessa. She sews. She crafts. She decorates. She has her own etsy shop with tutorials.She has some really cute red shoes and she rocks a pair of jeans. I want to be Vanessa when I grow up. Did I mention that? First someone really needs to show me how to use a sewing machine. Anyone? Lisa, would you come over for a couple of hours and a cup of coffee today? I know you’re like 16 hours away but really, I need you.

Anyway, Vanessa is hosting a February giveaway. Just click the picture up there. Check out out the giveaway featuring another Brandy who happens to spell her name is a very odd way 😉 I love the little girl dresses and bobby pins. So cute. I might have to come out of retirement so I can afford all this shopping. Nah… Ray will just have to work even harder.
