Cards & Stuff

Wow, January is going fast! It reminds me that spring is right around the corner! Think Spring- Think Spring! LOL! I am looking forward to planning and planting my little herb garden. Just waiting for my new seed catalogs.
February 14th, Valentines Day is also my 6th year anniversary working with Close To My Heart (selling stamping and scrapbooking supplies) It has been something I love doing and I am looking forward to holding some new workshops this year. Just for fun I have posted some of the cards from workshops I have done over the years.

My son bought a new printer/scanner so I have been learning how to use it we are having fun!

Creative Fun!

I love being creative, here is a picture of a punchneedle project I did last year, think of it as a mini rug! You punch into what is called weavers cloth from the pattern printed side of the fabric (backside) with a special needle called a punchneedle you use different sized needles that punch with 2,3 or 4 strands of thread. This is so cool because it is like coloring inside the lines with thread, your project is finished really fast! I have made and given away many of these little projects, this is the only one I kept for myself. If you have any questions about it or would like to learn how to do this, I would be more than happy to teach you just leave a comment or e-mail me. It is really EASY!

Welcome to 'My Happy Space'

Hello Everyone! Here are some pictures of my work room as I call it my "Happy Space." I sat down the other day to figure out how much I spent in the last year making my space"happy" and I spent a whoppin $35.00 Whoo hooo! Not including the shelves on the wall, a gallon of white paint and my Volkswagon that was put together in the room (that was a gift from my hubby.) The paper rack I bulit out of metal cubes. The rest of the stuff came from yard sales, gifts from friends, Goodwill, Salvation Army or treasure finding on the side of the road, (trash day) my personal favorite (much to my husbands dismay!) I have yet to share this room with my Texas friends, and I am glad to have a place to share it with everyone.

Happy New Year

Happy New Year! Wow 2009 is here, I can not believe it! I pray we have a fantastic year to come, we will have a lot of changes this year; my mom will be moving here to our little city, Brandon will be 17, Marshal will be 16 (yes 2 teenage drivers!) I do not look forward to that. More painting will go on in the house and maybe some work on the bathroom downstairs.
I would love to finish 4 quilts(Christmas gifts for next year) in 2009 and at least 8 punchneedle projects (also gifts). But we all know how it is; real life gets away from us and before you know it, it will be 2010! I pray all of you will have a wonderful year this year and make sure you have a lot fun too!
