Hello World....

When I started this new blog in the fall, I had these amazing intentions of keeping up with it all.  Unfortunately I had a major run of bad luck.....and things got put off.  Well, I am back now and ready to start anew.  I have been trying to heal, and found that crafting has been my therapy.  While I haven't been scrapbookng as much as usual, I have been dabbling in some fun home decor projects.  Here's my favorite so far...


Project Liked up at Finger Prints on the Fridge


I have seen these adorable book page wreaths all over the web, and thought I can do that.  So away I went, only I used some antique sheet music.  I purchased a large plastic shopping bag full last summer at a garage sale for $2.00!!!!  I knew that it would come in handy sooner or later ;) The rosettes are made from rolled scraps of scrapbook paper from Prima, and glued on.  I just love how it turned out, I will share to completed entry once I get the painting done. 

The other project that I have started on is Becky Higgins Project Life.  I have learned the hard way recently with the loss of my dad, that even those Little things are important.  So I wanted to document them so I couldn't forget.  So far I am loving it....I never thought that taking a photo everyday could be so hard sometimes....but I am loving the challenge.  "O" started basketball for school and what a great way to remember those learning moments, and your first team!


While searching on Facebook, I also found this fun Totally Tubular challenge.  You had to make anything that you could come up with out of a plastic bottle....mine is the hair clip.  If you get a chance stop over to the Wescott page and vote:



Here's what I have been up to lately....I will see you soon :)

I recently came out of my creative rut to participate in a fun challenge.  Wescott tools offered a Totally Tubular challenge...and I just couldn't pass this up.  It was to create anything that you could out of a plastic tube.  I got right to work, and even convinced my daughter to model.........And my project is one of the finalists.... (yea!!!)



Mine is the hairbow on the right.  If you are on Facebook, please place your vote for me HERE!  Voting closes on February 2nd.  Thanks for your support, and share with your friends :)

Have a great night!
