I am a stay at home grandma, retired from nursing. I love making all kinds of crafts of any kind. I have 2 grandaughters that live with me and my hubby of 35 years. I hope to share your love of crafting and that you find inspiration in the creations and stories that I post here.
Hi fella bloggers. Are you wearing your green today? I started my day with scrambled eggs with creamed spinach. It was soooooooooo good. Yes I'm Irish. I'm in the middle of taking a class (break time) at My Creative Classroom. I love that place. The class I'm taking is using my cricut. Yes I wiped off the dust and starred it down and whispered you will not get the best of me. I'm always so intimidated by it. Am I the only one? I love that thing now that I'm using her. And I'm only using scraps, which we all have plenty of. So that is how my day is going. I did manage to wash 2 loads of laundry so hubby wouldn't stop at my door and go Grrrr. But I must say, my DH went out on his own and bought me 2 cartridges that I needed for the class. I told him I could make due with what I had with my bottom lip hanging down to the floor. Don't say nothing, I'm sure you've all done it. Well gals break is over, time to go back to the classroom. Blessings, Carol
Hi friends, wow here I am, 2 days in a row. I just got finished the final touches for my niece's valentine book and wanted to share some pictures with you. I hope everyone out there is having a wonderful day. In Our neck of the woods we are all praying for all those tornado victims so hit so close to home. God was definitely watching over them that day, as it could have been so much worse. My heart goes out to them. Well here are my pictures of Sarah's book and like I had said previously , I only used two full sheets of paper and the rest was all scraps and things I already had on hand. It's amazing what you can do when you decide not to spend the money and don't. On New Years Day that was put on my bucket list to get better with the spending as I really and truly do not need the stuff I buy so freely.This book I made was designed by Kathy Orta, who is an amazing designer. She has a site called Paper Phenomenon . I think thats how she spells it. I love her site and yes I'm a pita babe. I hope you enjoy the pictures as much as I enjoyed making Sara's book. Blessings, Carol.
Hi ya all. Last time I was here I said I was gonna get my room cleaned and get rid of what I don't use, and use what I got. And I've been doing just that. I made a smash book for a friends daughter, and I made a cloth dress form and a card. All made from right you guessed it, scraps. I just completed a valentines day book for my niece, whose birthday was on valentines day, just a tad late, but all I used was 2 new sheets of paper and scraps. Sometimes I think if I never bought another piece of paper, I could get by on just my scraps. I took some pictures of what I made and when I figure out how to get them on here I will do just that. I also want to make a video of my scrapbook room. I call it Purgatory. It is my sanctuary. Well I figured out how to put the pictures here but I don't know how to rotate the last two pictures which is my dress form I made and the birthday card I made for my granddaughter who turned 7 on Feb 26th. As you know the computer is not my best friend. I really don't know all the ins and outs of it, but I'm learning. The first several pictures I posted was the smash book I made for a beautiful girl named Anna as you can tell I added her name to the book. I hope shes enjoying it just as much as I enjoyed making it. Well friends I will say goodby for now, but I will be back. Blessings, Carol
