A few things I've been working on

I've working on some gift items. I'm having lots for fun checking out blogs and getting  some great ideas. I do wish I could remember where I saw the "pencil" idea. My grandson loved it so I guess I'll have a make some more, he is in Jr. High with lots for teachers.  I have 4 grandchildren. So I will have my work cut out for me.

I think the #2 adds such a nice &

supplies were very easy...who doesn't have "Rolos" & "Kisses"

I found these frame's at "Michaele's" several months ago and I'm just now getting around to using them.  I have seen them on several blogs finished out in many different ways. The "You & Me" would make a nice Father's Day gift. This would also make a great Christmas gift. You can cover & decorate in any style you like.

Stop by any time & leave a post!

Mother's Day

Just now getting around to updating my blog, been very busy,sent out several Mother's Day cards to some family & friends. Could not believe all the calls I received thanking me for the cards & telling me how much they enjoyed them. And being handmade was just the icing on the cake. My inspiration was taken from Jeanette Lynton May 3rd facebook post. If you are not on  you are really missing out. The Art Work is so beautful and so many great ideas.
