Linking up with Mrs. Dunnit for WOYWW ...for me it's what's on your dining room table, the floor and the kitchen table...
Getting Trying to get ready for the craft Fun Day this weekend, the 17th.  This is a huge craft fair, at least I think it is, 252 vendors..
Saturday evening, when we return home from the craft fair.. I WILL be storing and setting up the downstairs apartment!!  No more trekking through the house with craft items....sheesh. If I can't use the back deck stairs, because of my hip, I'll just walk around and down the side yard.
My hip/knee/leg to the ankle, continues to swell on and off...I am thankful that I have been blessed to live in such a way that I stay home, therefore am comfortable during this process. (staying in p.j.'s all day, it's very uncomfortable and awkward wearing jeans with one hip swollen) 
 Don't know what I would have done if I had to of left the house daily for work.
Here's to all my new You Tube crafting friends and my old blogging friends that are experiencing crunch time getting ready for Craft Fairs.....
Deep Breaths....
Be Blessed!

WOYWW and BRRRRRrrrrrrr

Remember I am still working in our little breakfast nook area.  When I can manipulate the stairs on the outside deck, without fear of slipping, I'll be back in the craft apartment...

Spent ALL day yesterday trying to make paper flowers.  If you have an easy technique please do share.

I also played on and off with the dry embossing and the embossing powder with different water based inks.

Gotta get back to serious work today.  Good day for it. It's about 45 or so (7.5c) and will not be warming up much.

Congratulations to our First Time Voter!!

Linking up with Mrs. Dunnit !

Be Blessed..

Busy Family - Get Out and Vote!

It's going to be nasty, nasty, nasty out the next few days.  Wet and cold!  Glad I'm restricted to what I can do when the weather is like this.  I will be getting to the polls though!! And so should you.
The artsy/fartsy bug has infected my entire household..
18 year old crocheting a baby blanket..NO! not for her.
14 year old writing a play
16 year old trying out my embossing powder.

A book box, an oval box and a small plaque I altered.
I have had two quite large craft hauls this, so much fun!

If Jack Frost would go ahead and stop by briefly it would calm my anxieties about my gardens....

Be Blessed.

The Last Couple of Days

I have tried my hand at  heat embellishing...and dry embellishing with my new toy...not picitured.

Actually the black and blue purse looking thing is my new embellishing machine, looks just like a little purse.

I altered this yellow notepad...

It will soon be in the mail Marydon.

And made this wood plaque...

Be Blessed!
