Boy you can tell things have been a tiny bit busy around here.. because I'm finding it hard to find time to sit down and do blog posts:( Sorry kids. I'll be back in the swing of things soon. We are getting excited because family has started to arrive for moms big birthday celebration next weekend. I have a large family and we are spread out across the US, so this has been over a year in the works. For everyone to get time off from work, arrange flights ect.. has been a no small endeavor. There will be close to 60 of us .. kids, grand kids and great grand kids home at one time. Yippee! We are all just so happy that mom is home and doing so well. I was there visiting today and I just can believe how she has improved, and how much better she feels now that she is off all the pain meds she was on. Praise the Lord! Again.. thank you all for all your thoughts, kind words and prayers. Seems like you have all be through it with me:) Whatever is happening in my life.. automatically seems to run over into my writings here. It's where I share :) Thanks for listening.
Okay.. time to "share" something creative. This is one of my Tattered Angels projects for Sept.
You can see my projects and LOTS of others the DT has created with Prima and Tattered Angels products together here on the Tattered Angels Blog.
I created this piece as a gift for my sister and brother-in-laws 50th wedding anniversary. I used a piece of the Prima “Sew Cute” papers along with Tattered Angels Paints and sprays.
I accented alot with “Twinkle Toes” Glam I also used Sassy Silver Glaze and Cotton Candy Chalkboard.
With the combo of this beautiful paper, and TA paints I wanted to keep the embellishments to a minimum to show them off …and also keep the focus on the photo.
I painted a larger piece of thin wood to mount and frame this layout when I was finished. I plan to give it to them next weekend when they are back for the celebration. Hope they like it.
Well, I officially got my slippers out today! Do you know what that means? (yeh.. my feet are cold, right). That means ... summer is going away... and fall is approaching. I never have shoes on. I'm barefoot any chance I get. But... my tooties were COLD this morning. I am not ready to say goodbye to summer, although I do like fall. (just not what comes after that) brrrr Summer just seemed to fly by for me this year. One thing I do not like about cold fall nights.. is my beautiful plants freezing. I enjoy them so much. Just as the weather cools a bit from the extreme heat, the plants start looking so nice..then FREEZE. poo! I will enjoy them for what time there is left... then just look forward to the beautiful colors of the turning trees.
Monday is the Crafty Secrets DT challenge day, so I need to get busy and finish my projects tonight. (with my slippers on:) Be sure to stop by on Monday, I'll have links to all the girls beautiful creations.
** Also, while Sandy is away in France( poor thing..haha), I did a blog post for her on the Heartwarming Vintage Blog. I posted a number of great Halloween projects the DT has created. Pop over and take a look HERE.
Enjoy your weekend!
