I am getting to post my small crafting and completed project. YIPEE for me 🙂 As you can see I am still not quite got the hang of getting the photos inserted correctly so please bear with me . It’s been a while since I posted photos and had to really think about what I did to get them off my computer .Silly things were not where I thought they were. The camera software had me confused……..but then again lately that don’t take much..lol
So the inspiration for these flowers are thanks to Lynn at Gardenpinks she posted her calendars with paper flowers she made and I had been wanting to give them a whirl. Since time is limited for crafting I wanted something I could do in stages, you know work on it then leave it if needed and pick up later where I left off this was a great project for that. I was also inspired to use up my scraps from my good friends too Both had posted about using what you have Lynn’s recent and Leslie at message in a fold a while back So armed with the ideas I set to work first I found some strips of 12 inch long paper and just trimmed them up so I had 2 for each flower, got out the edge punches and got to work. had a break here That accomplished I used my Martha Stewart scoring board and scored so I could do the folding ,creased each real well with the bone folder. had another break this one lasting til bedtime was all settled. I was able to punch out 4 circles and added sticky strip ( atg didnt work well) placed my folded strips onto them and added the old jewelry piece and the button.I also sprayed the big flower with Stampin ups vanilla shimmer spray and on the small one inked the edges with a sponge dauber and chocolate chip classic ink. They are pretty I think ,Don’t know what I’ll use them for but it never hurts to have some embellishments on hand 🙂
WE are getting along better here got some more snow about 5 or 6 inches I think and will having blowing and drifting tonight. Ariel is finally better and was able to return to school today which made us both happy 🙂 Levi had his appointment yesterday and does have to have the tubes put in his ears they just wont drain and it is effecting the hearing so they think this is the best option fo him the day is not scheduled yet but very soon. His birthday is the 23 rd so we want it to be after that.
So far the 2 kiddies that didn’t get the flu arent showing any signs so I am hopeful it has passed them by but wont hold my breath 🙂
Brian is finishing the business part of the taxes up as I type so all we need to do is get his W-2 from driving the Bus on the 20th and he will have them all finished. I get to go to the laundry mat tomorrow and wash up the full hampers of clothes but will bring them home to dry them I havent been to one in years as we have been blessed with a washer and dryer for quite some time now. Gotta go now Morning just comes way too early for me around here( I need a really good sleep in day ) so as I close I will post a couple more pictures.
Here is a look at my small sleep space LOL Yup Levi is in pink jammies as I am having a hard time finding any blanket sleepers his size I guess with all the cold weather people are snatching them right up. any way this is the correct angle of my bed looking from foot to top. Guess which side is mine??? *bing bing bing* you guessed correct !! My space is in the middle of those two 🙂 Sierra is kinda wrapped around my shoulders and I am on my side facing Levi while he has his little head up under my chin and Brian gets what I think is a large space on the other side 🙂 and if Savannah was not locked in the bathroom she would be at the top of my pillow opposite Sierra Kinda like my personal cat hat ( can’t shake that cat off for nothing she will sneak back when I fall asleep.) thought you might think this funny Since I do. Hope you are all well and keeping healthy and warm. Hope to be able tp post more as I am getting a better routine going around here and carving out some ME time.
Love and hugs to you all,
