Lavender

I finally did it!  I now have a lavender garden.  I got a very large plant from Mom and we divided it into 24 plants.  I hope they do okay, I'll baby them.  I need to do a little more research to find out about taking care of them, but they don't need a lot of water.  For now I hope I can keep them alive.  The rest of my yard is more or less a xeriscape, I'm not much of a gardener, we have a well and I don't want to waste water.  Good excuse, huh?

Wish me luck!

Fun Stuff Friday

Friday's are my busy day.  In the morning I get all caught up on housework and then in the afternoon I volunteer at the Kennewick Senior Center for an afternoon of BUNCO.  There are some very cool people who play with us, we just started last fall and they love it!! Men and women play and we all have so much fun.  The people donate prizes and we all bring treats.  I have grown to love my group and it continues to grow.  If you're in the area come join us!!!

BUNCO Jewelry

It's still beautiful weather here, but it's hot enough that I would rather be inside crafting.  As I was sorting through all my 'stuff' I found some beads that look like dice.  I'm a big BUNCO fan and am always looking for something cool for my BUNCO Beauties.  I designed a necklace that, maybe, will be fun for all of my besties.  I've done some fancy beading in the past but it's something that I couldn't keep up with.  This project is really simple so I can get a lot of them done.


I think they're cute.

Take care, enjoy the day and be creative!

A Crafty Day

The weather is so nice although it's a bit too warm for me, they (whoever 'they' are) say it will get warmer before it cools off. The only problem is that the bugs and reptiles love it, ick.

I went to card club at Beckys last evening and we made some great cards! She always comes up with some cute cards. Check them out.


I needed to make something today.  After a search I found some great ideas at The Letter 4. The Crafters Survival Kit was so cute! So I borrowed the idea and ran with it.  Mine aren't as cutsie and girly as hers but I had fun and my daughters like them.


So I've created something today and I feel better. For me it's an accomplishment.

Have a wonderful day, be creative!

New Beginning

Good morning.

I hope it doesn't confuse anyone -- I did change the name of my blog.  I just wanted a change.  Thank you for understanding.

I just haven't been crafty this month!  And it's even National Craft Month!  Some friends are having a lunch today to celebrate my birthday.  It's wonderful!  The celebrations keep on going!  But I had to do something crafty to let this new group of friends know what I'm all about.  So I made the cute little mini milk carton and decorated 15 of them.


I think they are the cutest!!!

Have a great day!

Flowers

I've had so much fun!  I've been making flowers!  I found a some fabric flower tutorials from the Tip Junkie.  There are ten, but I was so excited I had to show what I have done.   You could find them here.


I've been doing a lot of sewing lately, since I've had to give up crocheting.  It really aggravates my carpal tunnel. Boo hoo. I really like to crochet.

I've also been doing a lot of paper crafts and I can't wait to show them off.

Happy krafting!

Cutesie stuff...

My sis and I are readying up for a bazaar, so I've been making things.  I have so much fun I hope others will like them, but that's okay, what doesn't sell I will give for valentines day.

I love to make boxes so that's what I did.


This is the first one I made, they can all be used as a bank when the candy is gone.



I had fun now I will go make more stuff!! What fun I'm having!!!

Retirement Gift

We recently threw a surprise retirement party for my dear sis.  We wanted a "memory album" for her, so I made a silly portfolio filled with file folders.  I think it turned out pretty cute.


This photo isn't very good but I made a video that I will post at the bottom of this entry.  As you can see I also made some 'letterhead' so people could write up stories, then file them away.  So cute!  She did like it.

I'm not so good at making videos but I hope you enjoy it.

Happy New Year

A new year is upon us.  I hope it is being good to everyone.  Our holiday's were the best, very quiet but plenty of blessings and gifts.  Let's hope this year is the best, after all things can only get better.


I've been so busy with a project, I can't wait to show you a "mini album" I've been working on.  It's so hard to keep a secret, but it'll be worth it.


Take care and go do something creative!
