It's Raining Again...

I guess I'm goin to have to keep my cat from going outside because it's raining again and it's getting pretty old. I hate gloomy days! I'm working on my last dress and I'm really not wanting to do it! I think I'll stamp for alittle while, be back soon...

Sorry I've been gone...

Hi everyone, Sorry I've been gone but I've been pretty busy altering prom dresses for some girls. Actually 3 prom dresses and 1 bridesmaid dress. I've only got 1 prom dress to go! I worked on the worst one today and got it done. I love it when someone calls and says Oh it just needs a hem then you find out it's got 5 or 6 layers! Oh well, it's something I enjoy doing on the side and besides it gives me some junkin' money for this coming week-end! This is the week-end our ladies from church take our bus down to Nashville and spend the night and go to the flea market on Saturday! I found a great piece last year! the size of a coffe table maybe a bit bigger, it had 12 drawers that measure 12 x 14. It has 4 drawers down and 3 across. I'm thinking the guy cut it into 2 pieces because it looks like it and he told me last year he had another one at home that wan't finished yet. I'm hoping to find the rest of it this year! Can't wait to go! Hope all of you have a great week-end.

Happy Anniversary to me!

Today is our 30th Wedding Anniversary. I can't believe it's been 30 years. Time passes by pretty quick. We received a nice surprise from our parents and our kids. They got us a trip to Los Veges and the Grand Canyon! Yeah! How fun is that. I was kinda sweatin' it because I was hoping there was not going to be any big boats! I am not a fan of the water! So it was a very good surprise.... and to top the day of I got my goodies from Creative Express today too! OM gosh! I can't believe all the fun stuff I got from them to alter and the cheap prices!!!! I can't wait to start playing. I wish I didn't have to work tomorrow. But I promise next week I'll start in. You ladies are going to flip out when you see some of this stuff, makes me want to buy more...but I guess 3 big boxes was plenty!...but I did get FREE shipping! Hope everyone has a nice Easter.

Altered K-mart Notebooks

Ok, I told you I'ld post them when we got them done so here they are! I had a total of 14 so we went ahead and did all of them. We already know which one we want if there are any leftovers. :) I hope the teenage girls from church enjoy them. I thought they turned out rather nice. It took me awhile to figure out how to get around the silver plate on the front, but I think I did a pretty good job.
I think this is my favorite.
...or maybe this one...
or this one...
Here's a back view, We covered the front, back and the insides.
By the way I don't know what happened to Spring, but yesterday we got over 2" of rain and today it's in the 30's and it's snowing! Yicks! Thankfully the ground is to warm for it to stick.

Spring Is Here!

This is a card I made using the Cheep Talk stamp set, the Big Shot, largest Scallop Circle die, and Stampin' Ups! new Circle Cutter.
Our pear tree is budding out. Hope it doesn't freeze tonight.

View out my window. It was a wonderful day to be outside!

Small barn where our kids used to keep their 4-H steers. Just had to post this one, because it brings back some fun memories. Hope everyone is having a nice week-end. Well I gotta go clean of my table. I've got some ladies coming over tomorrow to alter some of the notebooks I got at K-mart for the girls at church. We are going to make them prayer journals and pass them out at our Ladies Fellowship meeting this month. Come back next week and check them out.
