Has it been almost a month since I have blogged, I guess I'm getting slow in my old age. Or maybe I've just been busy at the store and on etsy, that was just a maybe. ;)

We do have many new things up on the etsy site and we also have the Sweet Treats ready to be picked up at the store. These are packed full of wonderful Chrismas goodies. They are $18.95 and Judy if you don't want to know what is in them then don't look any further.

Well back to work.
Have a great day.

Still going with the Christmas Tree theme I've made a tree from stuff in out etsy site this is made from chenille color of your choice. I used the holly leaves and red posies to decorated it. The amount of chenille depends on the size of the cone you use, I used a 10 inch styrofoam cone which took about 12-15 yds. of chenille.

Oh Christmas Tree....Oh Christmas Tree....

Here's the Christmas Tree book from Maya Road that people have been waiting for me to do ever since they saw the sample come home from CHA. The class is Nov. 17th at the store please call for space. It is filling up fast.

This is one of my favorite books.

Thank you
Have a great weekend

Friday, November 06, 2009 guess I'm not a patient driver.

So I was driving home from work the other night, and it's dark so I really couldn't see. I'm driving in a 40mph zone doing about 38. That drives me crazy, the car about 3 cars ahead had to have some little old man with a hat in it. Me I wanted to use the center turn lane to pass him, he's making me crazy, I have places to be things to do I can't go 2 miles UNDER the speed limit. Because of HIM I hit every light, I'm cursing him the 4 miles I'm driving behind him, finally I'm getting ready to turn at a red light and who pulls in the turn lane ahead of me, that's right mister slow poke himself. Now I'm cursing at him, wait now I can see long hair it could be a her, because they seem to be waiting for an engraved invitation to turn. I mean come on there were some holes in the traffic that were big enough for the both of us to get thru. Now the car behind me is blowing it's horn. Finally we made it thru and the numskull turns down my street, come on I'm just not suppose to make it home I guess. Crap!!!! It was my teenage son the whole time coming home from school. Well I guess I don't have to worry about him driving wild and crazy. Hope he just does tick the wrong driver off. LOL!!!!!!

Hi Everyone.......

That's what I usually say when I enter the market place in Farm Town on Facebook, it seems I'm addicted to it, yes I have a sad, sad life. But while I was harvesting and plowing I did get myn ATC's done for an October class. The date has not yet been set. It is a Halloween Theme and we will be doing 8 cards dealing with canvas and transparencies.

Here are the bracelets I made this weekend for my nieces for Christmas.

have a great day

Wednesday, September 09, 2009

Well lookie, lookie.......

Cass has been playing, she's making bracelets with stuff from our etsy store in this bracelet you need approx. 24 pearls and 12 rasp. beads. We do not sell the chain and other jewelry supplies but I'm sure those can be found on etsy too. You can make them any color with the raspberry beads. Who knows you might even find them already made in the futer on the site.

Also look at the cute little spider made from the bump chenille at the etsy store.

Have a great day and check out the store.

I put out three tubs of past class kits at the store, these are those that were never picked up and yes we do have more that we need to get ready, but for those you must wait until I can get them ready. They do make wonderful Christmas gifts. Hey I know is only September but it will be here before you know it, get started when you can.

Well I'm going to enjoy the nice day now, have a great one!!!!

My, my how time flies......

Well I can't believe it's August already, and the heat of summer has finally hit us here in Michigan, it brought it's friend humitity too.

Lots to catch up on and yet it seems like I have done nothing. I went to CHA with Maya Road again ( I love working for them) I must say I was surprised how small CHA was, but I always have fun with the girls and David. I did get offered some teaching jobs while there, I have to look into them a little further, so I may be coming to a scrapbook store near you.

We had to put down our middle dog Rascal, he was the best dog ever, I've never had a dog that listened so well and didn't care what you did to him. He was just a big ole bunch of love, the family took it very hard.

My father-in-law gradutated from Metodist Theological School, we are very proud of him.

I do have class samples done, I know Cass is grasping her chest as she reads this, but it's true. I have the Vintage Zoo book done and Vintage page class done, I hope to get more done tomorrow.

Well I think I am going to go for now, lots more to do before bed.

Have a great day.

Lots going on.......

and yet nothing really to post about. Ok that's not true We are supper pleased to have a part-time new teacher at the store Carrie Rees, she is super talented and we've been wanting her to teach for a while, we just had to wait until she got out of school, and she gose back soon so you better get in on one of her classes soon. Her first class is an ATC class and they are really cool, I'll show you a sneak but you might have to go to her blog to see more.

Really cool, we are also going to start up almost like an ATC club/class. Carrie's class is 8/6/09 so write it down or sign up now, she'll show you some fun stuff to do with inks.

I have added more stuff to the Paper Tales Etsy site once again please if you are local please convo me what you want and you can pick it up and pay for it at the store so you don't need to pay shipping.

As some of you may know that CHA is right around the corner and that means new stuff so start saving those pennies and please let us know what you see that you like. The G45 papers are up on their site so if you want to make a list it helps us when ordering.

I will be attending again for Maya Road and playing with all the goodies, and sweating in the florida heat, and playing with all the goodies. MR has some really fun stuff coming out so yhou guys need to go blog hopping and see all the new stuff.

Well I should get ready to go upstairs, my neighbor is smoking more that just his pipe tonight and I'm getting the munchies.

I've been playing

And it is not with scrapbooking stuff, most of you by now should know that I love vintage stuff. And my favorite is ribbon and lace, I love the stuff, well I decided to start playing with it instead of just looking at it. Here is some of the flowers I have made with it, these are not done I plan on putting them on lace scraps, but I do have orders for them already, I haven't decided if I was quite ready for that but a store owner told me to get ready. Here are some pictures of them.

Well back to work, have a great day.
