Thrown a Curve Ball…

Posted by on Apr 28, 2009 in Delight In Everyday Life | 7 comments

Yes­ter­day cer­tainly was one of those kinda days. Mother Nature is some­thing you don’t want to mess with and yes­ter­day she really hit Ft. Worth with severe thun­der­storms packed full of light­en­ing… my daugh­ter Terri’s super adorable apart­ment is now declared unlivable. Star-Telegram arti­cle My thoughts and prayers go out to the two fire­fight­ers that were injured. I hope they are doing okay and I thank them for their efforts. I will be away for a few days try­ing to help Terri sal­vage sen­ti­men­tal items. And just so you know...

Weekend Run Down…

I hope you all had a won­der­ful week­end. I had lots of fun yes­ter­day chat­ting with every­one dur­ing Cocoa Daisy’s Spring Crop. That mes­sage board was hop­ping. I also started get­ting the projects ready for my sum­mer work­shop. Lots of red, white and blue hap­pen­ing in my scrap­room right now. Today Alan and I worked really hard get­ting my “Vin­tage Sam­pler” work­shop ready to debut for National Scrap­book Day on Sat­ur­day, May 2nd. This is a free work­shop. If you are inter­ested you can sign up for it here. I have the sup­ply...

I love great mail days…

I received some great pat­terned papers the other day. I love the Lit­tle Guy line by Melissa Frances. I think it is going to work per­fectly for my upcom­ing sum­mer work­shop. And the French Twist White and Cream Pearls are fabulous! If you have never ordered from Scrap-Diner you are miss­ing out on some great cus­tomer ser­vice. Sher­ine always gets her orders out fast and her ship­ping is excel­lent. Plus she always includes a lit­tle sweet thank you...

Happy Birthday Sweet Pea…

Happy Birthday Sweet Pea…

We are cel­e­brat­ing a big birth­day today. Terri turns 21 years old. I first saw this altered cup­cake box on Ranjini’s blog many many months ago. She found the cup­cake box at Tues­day Morn­ing. I imme­di­ately ran to ours to see if they had some and I got lucky. They had two left which I imme­di­ately grabbed as I knew I would be using them as money hold­ers for Terri’s 21st and Ansley’s Sweet 16 next year. The box is quite plain but has such poten­tial for alter­ing. The can­dle is held on by a mag­net although I attached mine to the top...

I’ve been working on…

a lit­tle some­thing for National Scrap­book Day and thought I would share a sneak peek. It is a lit­tle vin­tage ephemera sam­pler and will be offered as a free online work­shop project May 2nd, for all who wish to make it. Here is the list of sup­plies needed to recre­ate the sam­pler exactly as I cre­ated mine. But remem­ber as with all my work­shop projects you can recre­ate the project with items you already have on hand. 1 — 6” Square frame with approx­i­mately 3.5” square open­ing (Found mine in the $1 sec­tion at Tar­get) 6 — Maya...

Fun little game…

Fun little game…

So I just fin­ished my 90th project for my book. This means I only have 10 more projects left to fin­ish. I thought it would be fun to give a Maya Road RAK to the per­son that comes clos­est to the date (with­out going over) of when I will com­plete my 100th book project. All you have to do is leave a com­ment with the date and the per­son clos­est will win the RAK.… if two peo­ple guess the same date Ans­ley will pick the lucky win­ner. Oh just so you know my final dead­line is May 5th. So don’t guess after this date. We are to the half way...
