Warning... You still have time

Yes we still have time to make Valentine's!
So much cheaper (these days anyway) and who wouldn't love a handmade card?
These are from 1938 ,
 I saved them from the dumpster last year!
 Does that make me a hoarder..Wait!
Don't answer that yet?
Yes I save things... cards, candy boxes, photos... even stuff that wasn't mine.
 What is the oldest thing you have saved?

Happy Thursday!

I am experimenting with my new tablet -it doesn't like blogger?
Gee I  have so may technical issues... how about you?

Mixed Media Bag

I was so surprised to see that my #1 granddaughter is really using the cute little canvas bag I made her awhile ago!

I bought these cute little  purse like bags at hobby lobby on sale of course,
 I added a iron on, stamped a image on The O,

I was using stash from my store so a combination of glimermist and  clearsnap sprays.
Simple and easy ... let it dry!

Have a great day!

I am still sorting my stash and finding lots of things to play with!
See you soon!

Maybe Feb 1 is the start of 2015

Happy New Year?

So I am off to a bad start...
So much for all those things I am going to do in January...
The year ended with a big bang...  A new grandson well born around Thanksgiving!  So we spent Christmas with them!

I spent New Years eve in the hospital with my Dad , he is having Chemo for stage IV Lung Cancer and need a little transfusion because his blood was low. That kinda changed my mind on donating blood , My Daughter works at Lifesouth and is always in need of donors. So I plan to Pay it Forward in 2015 after flu season is over.  

As for goals , not going to make any promises , My blog will be mostly personal and some art I do this year. I am finally done with the "business" part of crafting. Maybe I will enjoy it more now. So leave me a comment to see if I still show up anywhere in 2015,

Happy New Year!
