I have been officially Crowned!


Mary Ann from "Follow your Bliss" sent me an awesome package! My paper crown was so cool. The paper she used really made it pop! My tea cup and saucer were perfect pastel! She even sent me an apron, in a paisley print. She sent me three buttons,which were so well done. I found her blog and "Follow Your Bliss" has become one of my reminders when I get a little weary trying to be a Wife and Mom and Sister and Daughter. Those are the most important things in my life and I am needed less and less in the "Mommy" department. Having a 17 and 13 year old daughter is a first for me...LOL That is what we tell the girls, "We've only been parents to you all!" LOL, they are good girls. It is a big change that I knew was coming,but has been harder dealing with.

Starbucks, glitter and wannabe Putz

It is a beautiful day here In South Georgia. I decided to make a mess on my porch rather than add to the clutter on my kitchen table, my bedroom and the ironing board in the laundry room. I have projects and disasters in each location.

I have a question, "Is it possible to have chills and Hot Flashes at the same time?"

My answer is yes, I get chills when I think of a neat idea or make something new, all the while having a hot flash with all the extra ingredients, dizzy, sweaty......UGH!!!!!!!!!!!

Kara totally spoiled me. She made me a journal and Atc and soap. My daughters snached the earrings she made them before I could get a picture of them. She is very talented!

I finally went to Michaels and saw Martha Stewart's new craft line.
Wow, very neat. I bought some spools of bakers string and a marker and some tags.
I am doing a June COLOUR Swap, we each chose a color, and my partner loves pink just like ME! Cheeky from Create a Connection is hosting. I am passing all the pink on......

The little wooden frame is for my next project. I am going to fill it with miniature treasures......

My Mom got me this syrup jar and pillow case while thrifing. Fun Fun!

I made a discovery while working on my "Vintage Button Swap" cards due June 23rd. I was drinking my Favorite Diet Caffeine Free Coke and added Sugar Free Vanilla......
syrup... yum yum. This is the first card. I really like simple lines and so much of what I see has 3 or 4 mediums used. This may be a little plain. I am gonna stare at it for awhile.

One Across....What you drink out of?

I am mailing my Cupcake swap package today. It has been a fun challenge. My mind is a little frazzled, because I have had some flops! I tried a cupcake out of felt that looked more like a cake. You know one of those cakes cooked at high altitude and then someone opens the oven door..........which is about the time you discover you missed putting in one ingredient.....Really bad!!!!!!! Flat cake vs. Cupcake. Oh well back to crafting.......................
