What on your work desk Wednesday

Hi Everyone, I actually Like Wednesdays now, I’ve been making some cards the past couple day, and I clean up my desk area last night it was very you can see I never painted

them words yet maybe today, so I took a picture of my messy floor. and my storage area.. The wood floor is yucky about 2 months ago after and animal accident I ripped up the carpet

was going to sand the floor and re stain it, well we haven't done it yet and after a couple weeks I put everything back in there because we couldn't walk in the front room!  so I'm hoping

that will be a later fall or winter project..And thank you for the nice comments last week on my craft area.. I truly love this. Its great seeing other’s work area’s

The Sugar Bowl

Hi Everyone, hope your Friday was good, Mine was but it cost me money.. Youngest Daughters 18th Birthday is Monday And she wanted the Ipod touch and since we didn't throw her a graduation

Party and its her 18th I said I wanted to get her the 32 gig.. well my other daughter came over and saw it, and said gee you didn't spend that on me..LOL so guilt hit me so I bought her a 100 school book she needed so now she's

so for the card I made for the sugar bowl challenge is two cards in one, for the challenge and my daughters birthday card.. boy and did I have a time with this one too, my mojo left me and I got a card all made for the challenge and went to look at the site again, and realized  I got the color part of the challenge wrong forgot all about that part so I made it all over again.

so here the sketch/with pink and brown


And My Card

It was a crazy and happy day!!

Hi everyone, no card for me today again, I feel crafty but I'm a bit lazy, then with my neck and wrist problem makes it hard to do stuff

lately I'm going 85% of the day with my neck and wrist feel like they are on fire ,throbbing wrist and finger tips feel tingly, its getting me upset more now

I want them to fix this!! I got a Myelogram Tuesday that is suppose to show more go in next Thursday for the results .. well anyway.. I wanted to tell you a little

about my day, earlier this week I got an email and a letter in the mail about one of my favorite scrapbook store, she's closing her store. 

can you believe it she wants to I left the house around 920am store opens at 10 this is a special sale

well I'm thinking I know people will be there but it shouldn't be that bad its the first day. well I was

ladies where lined up around the building. my first thought was forget it, but I drove out of the way to go here, I'm stopping and waiting.

well only so many people can fit in the store so one left one went in actually the wait wasn't really all that bad..

I bought some stuff and want to go back for more, if anything is left.. the ladies that made it in first got the best deal they bought the displays racks, for pretty cheap

I wanted something for paper, but they where already sold..So after about 2hrs of waiting ,shopping and waiting in line I left for my real designation My Moms house.

Today is my Mom’s 85th Birthday.I made her a card using a hanglar image and bought her a gift, funny thing though she took my card and said she was hiding it from my 

see on mothers day I made her a card using a magnolia, she just loved it. well later that day I

guess my dad decided it was stupid cause it didn't have a mouth or nose, so he drew one on..LOL boy mom was mad…lol

well we had a very nice visit and I came home with a few things of hers , that I thought was special and has a lot of memories

Scrapbooking has been around when our mothers where young, my husbands mom had scrapbooks with journaling in them like today. its just amazing to see

things the same growing up just a bit different.   this is my moms scrapbook  I just wanted to show the book and a couple pic’s

thanks for visiting, hopefully this week I can make something
