Its Monday

Howdy crafters,

Lastnight I was looking through some old photos of my Grandparents and came across this picture. This was taken on their wedding day back in the 40's. I LOVE this picture. My grandparents looked so happy and so in Love. I decided I wanted to frame it but wanted something vintage to put the picture in. I found the back ground paper and thought it would be perfect. Then I came across some OLD buttons that grandmother had, flowers and ribbon and decided to make a tag. I have to admit this framed picture of grandma and grandpa is one of my favorite things. Who knew that 3.00 in products could make such a wonderful frame...

Thanks for looking at my project today. Hope you have a super day!

Being Thankful

Hi every one!

What a better day than today to be filled with happiness! After all its a day of rest after an oh so ever busy week! I am very thankful to have God, family and friends not to mention a job....Even though sometimes we seem to take things for granted sometimes you need to stop and be thankful for the things we have and the special relationships we have built. With that being said I woke up thinking about a very good friend whom is going through a nasty divorce. She has been the back bone of her husbands military career for 25 years. She put her wants and needs above anyone elses. Now that he has retired, he's decided he wants someone different, something new. I feel so bad for her. I have watched her agonize over the what if's, what could have been... He left her, their 7 year old son for a 21 year old. Anyway she has been on my mind alot the past few months. I woke up this morning wanting to do something to make her smile if only for a minute. We spent a girl day not to long ago and she started telling me how she wanted to change her room and bathroom to a different color. Browns, blues, tourquoise colors. I decided to take this 18x20 canvas I had laying around and do something with it. I headed to M's and found the perfect deco paper to match her room, came home and this is what I came up with. She recently went with her family to the beach for the weekend and has a fantastic picture of her intire family. I think this would be a great place for that photo. I sure hope she likes it!

Take today and hug your family and tell them how much they mean to you..
Happy Crafting,
Hugs "T"

Hello fellow bloggers,
I must admit Mondays are always crazy! I left hom at 7:30 am and just getting home at 9:00 PM... We have a student in our office and I really dislike training students. It seems like you get ONE good one and 10 bad ones. {This one is just UGH} So, I decided a few weeks ago to continue my eduaction. So I enrolled in a couple courses. I also took a second job two days a week in a Orthopedic ER. I started last Fridat after I got off my real job. Lets just say I now only have ONE free day a week and man ole man am I'm pooped today! The alarm went off at 5:30 and it took all I could to get out of bed and get ready for work. My big plan this week is to study on my lunch hour, work on a few cards and Keep a good attitude and stay positive. After all who could complain with a GREAT Husband, kids, friends....Thank you Lord for all the blessings you've given to me!!!!!. Hope everyone has a super night!
Hugs, "T"

Happy Thursday

Howdy all,

So I recently got in touch with my long lost friend Susan. We went to school together. Anyway she went threw some old pictures and found this one of me (solid red) and our friend Linda. This was taken at Susan's sweet 16. I have to laugh when I look at this picture because our hair was something else. We used to spend forever blow drying it straight just to turn around and feather it. The styles are so funny to me. Susan says Beyounce didnt create the booty dance I did. Ha...Ha... Get a look at our facial exspressions.... To stinken funny! Oh those we the days. All we had to do is worry about our friends, school and our boyfriends. Oh yes, lets dont forget about the parties and what we were doing on a Friday night. Gotta love old memories. Thanks Susan for sharing this silly photo with me..... Love ya girl!
have a super night everyone!

Happy Labor day...

I am so excited I have a Monday off to do whatever I want and not feel quilty... I slept till 11:00 this morning. Oh goodness I must have been tired.... Late lastnight I relized I promised my friend Martina I would make her a baby quilt for her new baby Reagan. The problem is she doesnt want the same ole same. She wants something retro and fun just like she is....I decided to look at my material stash and started pulling out fun material. The I started cutting. The only problem is now that I have my top almost done (I am deciding if I want to put a small boarder on it) I need to find some fun material for the back. Decisions... decisions ... Here's my thinking..... Do I really want to go to a material shop today? I know I will be in there forever and a day and buy more material to place in my stash.. Yes, I do, No I dont.... HA. I think I will stay out of there for today.... At this rate Reagan may be a teenager before I get this thing finished....

It's funny , no matter what kind of craft we do its bascially the same. Weather its, card making, scrapbooking, quilting, ect.. we have to put on our thinking cap and think out of our box. I also think very few crafters love their personal work. We all find flaws in our own work. Why is it that we can never seem to be satisfied?! Anyway that is my thinking for

Hope you all have a blassed day...

Sunday evening

Hi everyone!
It's so hard to believe it's already Sunday. I am sooooo glad I dont have work tomorrow however Tuesday will be a busy day. Why is it that in a medical office people wait until the very last second to call and get script refills? Not to mention some pt's wait and insist on being seen the same day when they've been sick two weeks.... I dunno I just dont get it...

So yesterday I had a good time being creative with some Su punches and a Hostess set. Boy ole boy did I create one BIG MESS..... I have to admit it was enjoyable making my So here are a couple cards I played around with. Now go grab some stamps and have a blast.
Hugs, "T"
