My first challenge with...



Card Patterns

I had some fun with this sketch! I have a few friends that have birthdays coming up so I took the opportunity!

Tools: Heat gun, eyelet punch, Pixie sewing machine, Cuttlebug w/ Swiss dots
Accessories: Organza ribbon, buttons, embroidery thread
Stamps: Crazy for cupcakes

I used the buttons because evidently I'm not a good sower...:(...tried to make my goof ups not sew bad...ha! Ha! Get it...not SEW bad.

Oh where...

oh where did my Pink Elephant go? Since I change my background, which was also an accident, I lost the Pink Elephant logo!

How ya'll doin?

This is my first night where I'm actually bored! I'm tired, but bored...Mark's asleep on the couch along with Jake...Mollie's on the floor, sleeping...not sure where Bryan is in the house...probably on the phone talking to his girlfriend...Clyde's asleep...think I should get a clue and go to sleep? Hope you all are doing good! I really need to do something creative! I just got a load of stuff from Stampin' Up! I should have used my time wisely and made a card...there are a few birthday's coming up soon! Maybe I could do a challenge too...it's been a long time.

Happy Birthday Kristen! And more updates...


I made this card for a cute little girl! Happy 4th Birthday? I asked her what she wanted for her birthday and she said,"A yellow fish!" So guess what she's getting from Auntie Bekki??? Well, hopefully I can find a yellow fish that goes in a very small fish tank. I think they got her a one gallon...
We've been going thru an additional change in our household...we now have a 14 yr. old, soon to be 15 yr. old boy! His name is Bryan...but sometimes we call him Eric, or David...I'm getting better. It's been quite an adjustment for us...he's very good, well mannered, smart and a hard worker! He's so much more mature than Clyde, it's hard to deal with in some ways and then not in others...he has a girlfriend (which is something we have never had to deal with before)...he wants to go hang out with his friends at the mall (again something we haven't had to deal with till now), he wants to go to Southwestern and not Pulaski High and he's trying to figure every which way he can to still go there (I can relate in that way, I walked a mile to and from school everyday because I didn't want to go to Somerset)! It's just totally different. I was thinking a 14 year old would be good for Clyde... they can play together, but he's in a totally different league! He doesn't watch TV, which is good, but a little weird, but he'll play Rock Band forever (which he totally Rocks at...he plays on expert and gets 90's!)! Please keep us in your prayers as we are walking on new ground here...eek! It also looks like Mark will be laid off for 3 months...I am praying that something will happen with that...he gets a better job...God knows the plans He has for us, plans to prosper us, not to harm us, plans for a hope and a future! -Jeremiah 29:11 Posted by Picasa

Hello...

I need to get my creative juices flowing...I feel like since my scrap class I haven't wanted to do anything. I'm going to look at some challenges and pick one or a couple. We'll see...I thank you all for your prayers and kind comments! I know that I am well taken care of, by my God!
He is Faithful! Amen?

I'm on facebook...

So sorry I have been neglecting my blog! I have facebook now and have been faithful on it...Here, I feel I only get lookers when I make something...there I can just chat...

Let's play catch up...my husband has been laid off going on 3 weeks starting next week, so that's been a distraction as well. My kid is now off from school...and I have had an addition the last couple of days. I am doing respite for a very well-mannered 16 year old! He's been a joy to have...maybe I should only take older teens from now on. :) We had a yard sale today and woopee... I hate to have a yard sale...going is alot more fun! The good thing was that I didn't have to put too much time in preparing for it. I hardly labeled anything and that made it sooo much easier. From now on, that will be how I do all my yard sales! Or maybe I should just go straight to Good Will like one of my friends suggested...

May you all be blessed...and I will be making a card soon!

2nd Scrap Class


My second scrap class and only one other person showed up...woohoo! We used a sewing machine, circle scissors, stamps, cuttle bug, water color pencils, aqua painters and a crop-a-dile.

No, Clyde doesn't have 5 eyes...I distorted his face, so you can't see it...since we are in the pre-adoptive stage it's probably ok to post pics now, but I am not sure.

I got a sketch from Scrapbooks etc. and ran with it...it was fun to do.

Eek, Screech, Yikes...

We were getting stuff out of our storage unit and found mice droppings everywhere... (Advice: only put your stuff in plastic tubs, not cardboard boxes! Clyde held this one box that contained our little friend up over his head, then dropped it sideways on the ground...there were all kinds of paper shredded and mouse poop, so I thought we might find a mouse...instead we found his predator. That thing slid over Clyde's foot and I ran the other way screaming at the top of my lungs!!! I was boot scootin' it! Clyde was laughing his head off at me and this is were it would have made a GREAT funniest home videos!
