God Bless America

I always think about my daddy so much on Memorial Day because he was a true blue American....he fought in World War II and loved his country...Thanks to all of our men and women in all branches of service...Okay got a finished project to share today. Josh had a beautiful wicker settee that we could not find a cushion set for. So Selina and I went to the fabric store and purchased some Waverly fabric on sale and I cut a pattern out of paper and here is my finished product. I had fun doing this for my first attempt, made lots of mistakes but the kids were still very, very pleased with it..Well tomorrow is work day and this weekend is Jamie's wedding. We are off to Pigeon Forge on Thursday..Have a great week everyone...

Well I said I would not....

But I did....I said I was not going to get into anything else and I went and did it..Josh gave me a very nice gift card to my LSS for Mother's Day so when given the opportunity to try new things I need to do it right???? I took my first DIGITAL SCRAPBOOKING CLASS...oh man I loved it...Brenda was awesome and so patient..I can't wait till my next class...I am going to share my first page and as I look at it I can see mistakes but I was pretty pleased with the actual way it turned out. I have had such a busy week I haven't had time to play this week but hopefully this weekend. I have been sewing up a storm all week and will share when I finish my project...Have a great holiday weekend everyone and be safe!!

Tear Bears--Rabbits or any other animals!!!!!!

Well finally I stopped and photographed some of my latest projects to share. My newest "addiction" is tear bears/rabbits or any other animal that I have a pattern for!! LOL..Ms. Brenda's layout of the month @ my LSS was "tear rabbits". I have since rumaged through my hugh folder of "stuff" and found some bear patterns that are probably 3-5 yrs old. One thing I have learned is that the handmade paper comes in many textures and some are easier to work with than others. I prefer the thicker texture as it seems to fluff alot better. Anyway I made a couple of pics of a layout I did to share. Hopefully I will do alittle bit better blogging. I must admit I have another new addition FACEBOOK....boy I love it as I have found so many of my old friends on it so that's where I've been (hangs head in guilt......) Have a good Tuesday everyone!!

Bad Blogger Again

Hi Everyone....well I have been a bad blogger again..haven't made any pictures of my projects and I've actually been doing alot of work outside. I painted decks all last weekend and took off Monday and finished....I'm soooooo glad that it is done. I'm hoping to get some projects done tomorrow as it is "national scrapbooking day". There is an online crop that I hope to be involved in on the Fiskateers website. They will have lots of prizes and challenges. As you will notice we have a new twitter fiskadeals that we are able to post on our blogs. This will tell of the latest sighting of fiskars "deals" on products and where to find products....This should be a huge "enabler" just what I need!!! Hope to post some pics tomorrow as I had a class in "TEAR Rabbits" and I have a "Tear Bear" pattern I want to try!! Till later....
