I do have talent....


There is never a lack of babble in our cave and as you know nothing is off limits. Ever. I dole out bits and pieces of our sometime all too humorous real world with any who wish dare to pass through. Fh and I were preparing for bed the other night and I was expounding about how I wish I could come up with something creative like her to sell when I was hit with a bolt of lighting! Shazam I think I've got it. Anyway, I didn't really think fh was tuned into what I was flapping my jaws about, but he was all ears. Fascinated.

We were discussing (I initiated---he was listening) my hair brained brainstorm ingenious idea which included me and a sewing machine. Stop laughing! I do have talent. Well, in my think trap I do.

Fh: "Um, honey, only one problem." "You don't know how to sew"! Oh, bother.

Me: Not one to ever let that impede me. "Yeah, yeah I know, but really how hard could it be"?! "Besides I've already inquired about taking a sewing class'.

Fh: "Really"?

Me: "Well, of course"! I have.

Fh: "Um, sweetie, did it occur to you that you don't possess a sewing machine"?

Me: "Yeah, but I did a little research and I can purchase one from Costco for a mere $150.00". Problem solved. Now I can put my plan in motion.

Fh: "How much will it cost to make these "award-winning" aprons"? (I want to make sexy hot designer aprons like in the picture) "What kind of cost are involved"? "And how many can you make a day'? Key for fh. How much???.....

Me: Great, he wants a business plan. "I don't know, maybe I could
bribe pay some unsuspecting soul to make them"! I'm already thinking I could set up some type of assembly line working 24/7 and maybe outsourcing too!

Fh: 'Laughing, and maybe you could make the girls clothing too".

Me: Ok, now that was just mean. "I think that may be a long shot"!

Fh: Yeah, they'll loathe you when they hit junior high and want you to finance the latest trends in clothing and you respond "I can make that for you"!

Me: Laughing. I remember the outfits my mom made for my sisters and I when we were growing up. Matching too!

Fh: Maybe you could make my suits. *snorting*

Me: Eyes rolling, and snickering...... Funny man.....

Note: After speaking to my mom tonight she reminded me that I do in fact own a sewing machine. I inherited my grandmother's when she passed! I'd completely forgotten that I had it. Must dig it out of the vault tomorrow. Running to check out his site....

I think it's a great idea! I start things and then get bored in the middle. Richard's always ready to come up with new business ideas for me. Right now, he's focused on the boys' lemonade stand on the golf course when we move into the new house. They're going to make millions, you know!!lol. I'll buy the first apron!

Sexy, fashionable aprons? I say go for it! Now I need a vision like that... Gotta get my wheels turning! I was thinking recently of getting some material and making an outfit for Sophia. I've even got the sewing machine. It's been about 8 years since I made a lil outfit for Paige (shorts and top w/butterflies - SHE picked out the material) and it was fun. Of course it cost more than if I'd just bought the outfit...

Let me know if you need a business partner! ;)

Too cute!!! Yeah, hubby is always thinking things up for me. I am just too darn lazy I guess!

Doris & Dan said...

Those are really cute! I hope your plan works out and you do not end up sewing your fingers together.

Keep smilin!

Mark & Michelle said...

Good luck - take pictures!

Sexy, fashion forward aprons, if they looked that good I'd never make it to the kitchen,*wink*
Sign me up for one, anything to get out of cooking. snort.

That is funny. Good picture. I hope you can get it figured out. Probably what you really need to do is find someone already doing it and then partner up with them to market for them.

You are too funny.
I can't wait to see the first one!
I am not crafty. :( Can't make anything. I would love to be able to make hairbows for the girls nd things like that. I love homemade gifts. I usually have the idea and then go make some lucky seller that does have the crafty ability on ebay $$$.

Isabella's Mommy & Daddy said...

Can't wait...
HUGS GIRLY!!!!

I had good intentions today regarding checking out my new adventure. BUT, I had a full day with the girls. Everything else takes second fiddle..

Salome's Mom said...

I thought that was a dress for a little girl. Which is also a great idea since you have the prettiest models in the world but never mind. I think it is a wonderful idea and you should go for it. You will become the Martha Stweart of aprons!

Jeff and Valerie said...

Love the idea? Can you make some in a man's cut too? Baba here tends to do the most cooking around our house!

Kimber said...

So funny...I decided the other day that I want to learn to sew too! I want to take classes with you...we'd laugh a lot! you are too funny!
