Towels, etc. Video

Here's the video that I promised.  It took me three tries on yesterday and two on today, but I finally got it!!!

Hope you enjoy.  Let me know if you have any questions and just want to make a comment.

Thanks for stopping...bye!!

Boxes and Towels

I decided to make some boxes for two of the mini albums I had made previously. Also, am making some candy tubes from the toilet paper rolls for the grands.  Will show all of these in a video (along with the finished towels), since I think they will be easier to see.

Thanks for stopping...bye.

Birthday Cards

Good morning all!!  Just finished a birthday card for my son.

I know it looks a little busy, but it is all of his favorite things after all.

Also, I forgot to share with you a card I made for my brother-in-law.

Hope you enjoyed.

Thanks for stopping...bye!

Happy Thanksgiving!!

Happy Thanksgiving everyone.  I hope your day is filled with love with family and friends.  These are our most precious possessions, and we should never lose sight of this.

I finished two sets of towels yesterday, and now I only have one set left to embroider.

I also finished a paper bag album for my sister's birthday (but forgot to get pictures).  Maybe she'll let me get some pics for the post.

I did complete a Match Book Paper Bag album, which I videoed.

Hope the rest of your day is filled with peace, love, and joy.  Enjoy your time spent with family and friends.

Thanks for stopping...bye.

Busy, Busy, Busy

Sorry, have been unable to post for a while.  Trying to finish up some bath towels (3 sets of 4 each) for my "bestest" friend. Almost done.

Had a little time in the garden the other day and took some pictures.  Haven't done that in a while yet either.  So, I thought I would share my other love with you.

One of my three-season azalaes.  The other ones are not in bloom and are just not having it.

Love my chiminea.  Fired it up this weekend for the first time this "winter" and enjoyed the fire with a glass of Moscato.  You can see my other orange tree (on left), kumquats in middle, and lemon tree on right.

These mums have come back beautifully every year for the past three years.  They are called "Helen" - my mom and mother-in-law's name.  I remember them each year with these mums.

Close up of the kumquats and lemon tree.  Have a very nice produce this year.  As you can see there are many more yet to come.

Close up of my lemon thyme.  Love the smell and taste of this plant.

This is the center fountain of the yard (have a small little girl fountain on the patio).  The water sound is sooooo soothing.

This is the other orange tree at the back of the yard.  As you can see, she's produce a good load this year.  Must be because of the gardenia plant that is planted to her right.

Close up of one of the rosemary plants in the yard.

My peppermint on the patio.

Oregano, rosemar, lamb's ear, and lemon grass by the pear tree.

Of course, my granddog, Trinia, just had to get in on the fun.

Just playing around.

Now, she's serious.

But, isn't she a beauty!?
 Hope you enjoyed your visit.

Thanks for stopping...bye!!

New Cards

Been really busy for the past few weeks; been working on embroidering some bath towels for a great friend.  But, here are a few of the cards I have made for my November birthdays (the ones that didn't get away before I had a chance to photograph them).  Also made a couple of mini albums and will try to get them videoed some time today.





Hope you enjoyed.

Thanks for stopping...bye.
