just more foolin' around

OK, so here's the thing...Last Mother's Day (when my dd lived in the big city), we went shopping at JoAnne's and I decided that I really, REALLY needed these zig markers for my prize.

So I got them and they sat in a box on my desk until last night when I decided that they needed to be used or dismissed from my craft room! But, since anyone who knows me will tell you that nothing EVER gets dismissed from the cardsister craft conspiracy without good reason, I had to find a way to keep them a lot more "at the ready", so to speak!
I came up with this idea when I almost threw out the tin can 'cause I couldn't think of anything to do with it. As always MME was the cake and thickers (white vinyl) were the icing!

I guess I should explain the "work-it" block: OK, here goes! That was a piece of wood that dh gave me for another project that didn't...ah...well...just didn't work out the way I had planned. I covered the block of wood with my favorite MME and BG White Chocolate chip letters. I USE it now for stamping on. My table is a little uneven and I have a hard time getting a good press, but this block is working out great! Thanks for stopping by!!

I am so blessed to have such talent surrounding me! This little rocking horse was made by my BIL-Rick for his new grandaughter. Too cute! And even though little Ava is still "tiny", she's gonna love this when she get's big enough to ride! I think Rick did a fantastic job and such a memory for he and Ava to share! Let me see...do I have anything I need made?

christmas card #2

This is Christmas card #2-I had hoped I had enough of the first ones to finish out my Christmas card list for 2009, but I was about seven short! I made these with the same idea, a window with a simple picture. I used glimmer mist, liquid applique, stickles and a spica clear pen which I bought from Yolanda at my favorite LSS-Memory Garden Scrapbook Shoppe! The border was made with Fiscars Treading Water punch. Well, I need to get busy-six more to make!

somethin' new

I bought this curtain rod at a local hardware store the other day to put curtains up in the spare bedroom. After I got it home, I had another idea. What do you think?
