And Thanks again for taking the time to stop by and read my little blog ;)

Pictures from Easter

Here are some more nikon moments from Easter :)



I have more pictures but early this morning it seems my computer wants to have a mind of its own...or it could just be operator error..lol..Anyway ..these are pictures of the "littlest" in my family..Little Miss Caroline and My little cutie Robert!! I am close to all the kids - but I am super close to these two..My sister Jennifer and I were with our little sis Heather in the delivery room when these two were born and from day one we've had a close bond with both of them :)

WOW!!!!!!

I would say this was a bit eye opening...I was right I blog for myself ( meaning I am the only one who reads it..) Oh well maybe at a different point I will have the give away. Not sure what to do..Been thinking seriously of opening a etsy store. I have been collecting for a longtime now laces, ribbons and vintage ephemera..so I have been thinking about this for a while now. But with working now I am not sure what kind of time I can put into it. I am still tossing it around, who knows maybe I am just over thinking it!! I do have a tendency to do that lol.

I have been putting my creative juices in working order..The same place I got the lace I also got a ton of colors in satin material and I have been a lollipop flower making freak..lol..I have also made two Christmas gifts for my sisters..I made them junk journals ..I made them a smaller one that they can keep with them in their purses or bags to keep track of daily events and stuff.  They have turned out so cute!! I just love that whole concept of the junk journals. I also got a whole tub of fabric squares that were cut for a quilt. There are so many unique blocks of fabric..since I am not a quilter I have not really thought of what I may use it for. I was thinking of maybe quilted / fabric covers for junk journals ..I will have to play with it and see what I come up with. And of course I have been working on my jewelry!! I always work on that trying different things.

I think my next big project will be my craft/studio..The room seemed so big when I moved here..but everything was tossed in this particular room as a catch all for the things I did not know what to do with. I have many things I am not sure what to do with because they are things I would use all the time. And I just do not have the room to store it. There is always that Idea of putting it in the attic, but then every time I would need something I would have to go up there. And I would have everything back in the room because I would be using it so much it would just be easier to do have it downstairs instead of in the attic!!! I have some ideas floating around in my head as to how I want it to look I just have to see if it will actually work for me...

Oh well I have to say goodbye now its time for me to get ready to start my work day :)

Just Curious.....

I was just curious to know if any of my scrappy friends ever read this blog...I am not one to make vids for YouTube so every once in a blue moon I do post here..But, I am thinking no one other than myself actually reads my blog...lol..Anyway this weekend I hit the boat load of lace..Omg!!! $10.00 for a 32 gallon tub filled to the rim with lace of all kinds..I was thinking of maybe having a give away..giving a yard of each one I have..What do you think?? At least now I will see if anyone actually reads this :) I think tomorrow I will post some pictures of what I have...til tell me what ya think anyone who is reading ;)
