Good Morning!

Our Thanksgiving week in Sacramento has come to an end, but we had a great time visiting family and now we're home with piles of laundry and lots of cleaning and decorating for Christmas to do. On Black Friday my Mom, daughter and I ventured out to Beverly's Fabric and Crafts. It wasn't crowded at all. We knew we were crazy if we went to JoAnn's or the Mall. We just wanted to get out of the house. After cooking and just being indoors all day on Thursday we were glad to just look around and be inspired. I did buy a few things ...



Just what need, another craft book. I have bought so many craft books and magazines lately. What a shame, I should be busy making stuff instead of reading about it!

Okay, must go for now, I have lots to do before work tomorrow! I also need to change my blog wallpaper. Have a nice Sunday or what's left of it.

Happy Thanksgiving

Just another quick post before I head off to bed. I better get some rest because I'm sure my Mom will put me to work tomorrow. We are up here in Sacramento visiting my family. I'm looking forward to seeing everyone tomorrow.

Here's a photo of the mini quilt I sent to my cousin of her parents on their wedding day. She recieved it yesterday in the mail and was so excited when she called me, because she had just visited her Dad's gravesite. So this absolutely made her day! I had also printed a quote to sew on the quilt, but I messed up on the spelling and decided it didn't need one.

Goodnight and Happy Thanksgiving!

Have a great day and thank you for stopping by.

I'm still here!

Just a quick little post as to what I've been up to. With the holidays upon us, I'm back to making cards. Here are a few I made this morning, ready to send to my Mom, my Aunt Lucy and a computer generated card for my cousin Chris. I used Hallmark Card Studio, which I hardly ever, ever use, but I thought I'd give it a try again since I'm making cards. I much prefer to making my own with papers, embellishments, etc. I'll be making a few Christmas cards with photos on them for my family. I love old family photos.

Yes, that's me and my brothers on Thanksgiving Day (when we were little, of course). I think my Mom will get a kick out of this photo card. I'm so looking forward to spending time with my family on Thanksgiving. Should be really fun!

Here is some mail goodies I received recently . . . .

I ordered this adorable tumbler and bowl set a few weeks ago. I'm finally getting around to posting about it. The design is from Inside a Black Apple. My set came from Delight.com, they also have some other artists' bowls and tumblers. Very cool!

and on ebay I bought this fun potholder vintage transfer set by Aunt Martha, which I'm anxious to make very soon! Arn't they cute?

Okay, enough of my chit-chat. Have a great weekend and hope to post before the end of the week.

Halloween treat bags

Good morning! A quick craft share with mini treat bags. Very simple to put together, I'm looking forward to making these because I love...
