I have been busy

Well I haven't stepped near the computer much let alone have time to post to my blog. I have a long term sub job right now. Plus I am taking a few classes every week to get me closer to being an education technician 2. I also have done my first fall craft sale. I am in the process of finding more I can go to. My craft room looks like a tornado hit it. Thank god for Wayne helping out around the house or that would too.

I hope everyone will be enjoying the holiday season.

I'm back

Well I am back. I have been back for a little while. I was just so busy in real life it has taken me a while to post anything.
I have to say it was the most fun I have ever had. I met the most amazing wonderful ladies ever! I didn't get much done. Infact I only got 2 pages done the entire week. I spent so much time talking, and laughing that not much scrapping was done by me. I don't mind I had much more fun just chilling with the girls. It was so reenergizing for me. I needed it so much.

Hopefully I will get the energy to post the 2 pages I did get done. But for now I will just say Hi.

I'm going away

I haven't been around much lately. Waynes son got married a couple weeks ago. I also have been getting ready for a crop week that I am going to. I have been helping a friend get ready for it. I wish I didn't have to work tomorrow. I would already be there. I am going to be with some old friends. Along with meetine some cyber friends for the first time. I am so excited.

Wayne was so helpfull. He made the coffee bars, 2 apple pies, molasses cookies. He even mixed the dry bisciut ingredients. He cooked and picked the chicken too. These are some of the goodies I am bringing.

My sister had a lwansale last weekend. She let me bring my stuff there and she sold some for me while I was helping my friend. She sold 29$ for me. It didn't cost a thing to bring it I was on my way through there anyway.

I hope to have lots of projects done to show off here after the crop.

Etsy wanna be and my creations

I have been busy the last few days researching a place called Etsy. A lot of people probably already know of it. For those that don't it's a place to sell handmade items. I think i want to take the plunge and do it. I had always wanted to do E Bay but never tried. Etsy looks so much easier to understand.

So here are a few more things I have made

A pair of earrings I made

A bracelet

A knit washcloth or dishcloth

Cell phone charms

I made several ribbon necklaces. This one sold at the last craft fair.

busy week

First is a picture from last Saturday. My nephews first birthday. He had a Dale Earndhart cake. Hence the black and red frosting colors...LOL

Then there is my Borthday boy. His party was last Sunday. He is now officially a teen.....

The boys got to meet their great grandmother for the first time. She lives out of state. She is 87. She has so much energy. I hope I am as good as her when I get to her age. She is helping Nathan pick Blackberries.

Here is a Halloween card I made a while ago. I got the faces from Mooseberry Graphics. He has some cute stuff there.

Finally here is one of the scarves I knitted. Well I cheated a little. I used my knifty knitter to do it.

Some crafty stuff and a beautiful rainbow

Well I haven't been on the computer much lately. It seems when I do i end up being on here for hours. I have been trying to spend more time in the real world lately...hahahaha.

Here is a card I made. I love that stamp of the statue of liberty. I found it a while ago at my Mardens for .99.

A beautiful picture of a perfect rainbow near my house a week ago. I was so close I couldn't get a good picture of it all but it was a perfect arc. It was double but that doesn't show too well in the photo.

An 8x8 layout of myself.

Also a couple soaps I made. I made the shaped soaps first. I stole my chocolate molds for my soap making. Then I put them in the bigger molds and pour the clear scented soap over them.

Excited about movies

I am so excited. I just saw the movies they are having at the drive in this week. Last year we went a lot. This year we haven't had the chance yet. I am so not going to pass up this opportunity. The drive in is like $6 for me and the boys are free. They also show 2 movies for that price. Can't pass that up. We load up with snacks and drinks from home. The boys and I just love it. They are showing......WALL E

The chronicles of Narnia Prince Caspien.

I've been is a knit scarf

Well I haven't been near the computer for days. I was getting ready for the craft fair. I just remembered I forgot to take a picture of my table. I did get some at home the night I had my test set up. Maybe I will post them sometime. I made a few more cards and some gift card holders. I had a great time. I made 49$ after table cost so that is pretty good. It wasn't too far from home. I was also lucky to have a couple friends at this one too. So I got to chat all day. I am so good at that. I can't wait until the next one. i love creating things. I have posted a picture of a scarf I knitted a few days ago. I have to get ready for the fall craft sales.

A hot day...Here's something altered

Well it was a hot day here. I only had a 4 hour work day. It was 90° here and there was no air conditioning. Thank goodness for fans. I can't believe I used to work 11 hour days in a resteraunt in the 101° kitchen with no breaks. I really don't miss those days.

Here are some altered plastic juice cans. I turned them into pencil holders.

Layouts I have made

Well I thought I would post every day. I missed one. OOPS! Oh well. I have been deep in my scrap room creating. I am getting ready for a craft sale this Saturday. I just love doing them. I have all kinds of new ideas for things to make.

So, here are some pages I have done. They are a little old...but it is what I have found on the computer.

This first one is baby Me. I hand stitched the flowers on. I used the cricut to cut a flower out. Punched holes in it. Used it as a template to punch the holes on the paper to stitch in.

My oldest when he was a todler. The first time I used stickles. It is on the eggs. I was hooked.

My youngest when he was a baby. I used the cricut to cut the cat, letters and heart.

Also My youngest asleep in his squash baby food. I used a friends shillouette to cut the title.

Both my boys when they were little.
