So, here's my senior getting ready to go on her very last Homecoming Dance ever! Boo Hoo!! This is a tough year.

Both of her little brothers (and lil'sis who's at a slumber party)

Recent Projects

Hi all!!
I know I haven't had much time to blog but I've been squeezing some time in to create. Here's a peak at my projects.
These were super fun to make. I used Genuine German Lametta and vintage Mercury glass beads and ornaments.
Then I got hooked on these sweeties. I didn't think I'd like making these very much because the directions say "do not measure your circles" Ugh!! I'm a perfectionist control freak, no measuring or cutting on the lines!
But I think they turned out wonderfully. The kids thought it was super neat to watch me make them too. Only one of the fabrics actually smelled bad when I was melting the edges. The kids didn't like that much.
So, that's it for today. I've got a giveaway post planned for tomorrow. Here's hoping I'll get it done.
Let see, tomorrow we have SAT's, homecoming, a drill team parade, and a AAA little league game. At least we don't have soccer tomorrow! LOL
