If you are reading this right now please pause for a moment and send a prayer up for my Dad. Friday he went to work and fell into the bay, about 6 feet. He broke his pelvic bone in 2 places. Usually with a pelvic brake you must have rehab and it is very painful. My prayer to God is that he will be mended so quickly that it will astonish the doctors and no rehab will be required.
When I talked to him last he was joking that my stepmother, Arlene, got to have the summer off because she is a teacher and he was jealous, so he found a way to have the summer off as well. I told him no such luck, we had already prayed for him and are believing he will go home fully recovered by the middle of next week.
If God hears the smallest of prayers, just imagine what a multitude of prayers can do. Thank you so much for taking the time to pray for my Dad. BTW his name is Mike.

I have been so neglectful of the blog. Things have been a little hectic but I am going to the crop a latte tonight at Strawberry Fields, so I plan to get a few things created. I am taking them home to photograph and upload. So check back in the next few days to see.

Little Dress Class!!

I took this little dress to Strawberry Fields Scrapbook Shop and we had such an overwhelming response and questions about if we were going to have a class that we have put one together for you. I had to change a couple of the trims to what is in stock but the overall feel is still the same. It will be on May 26th @ 6:30pm down at Strawberry Fields. The cost for this little gem will be only $10. Give Pam a call at 239-540-2875 to reserve your spot.

I also wanted to say thank you to everyone who signed up for the mini book class. We have filled every seat.

Graphic 45

While I was over at Strawberry Fields hanging with Pam yesterday, I pulled down a few of my LOs that I had done with the Graphic 45. I love the vintage feel to these papers and Pam sells them the cheapest in town. At the bottom is a necklace I made for the manikin, I just thought she looked so naked and needed something to dress her up. I covered scrabble tiles with G45 paper and used UTEE and my drill. TFL.

Happy Birthday To Me!!

Well today is the day, I am now 28. I anticipate a great day. I woke up to my wonderful husband planting a smacker on me and telling me Happy Birthday as he ran out the door. He left me a Birthday message on my mirror. We write each other with a dry erase marker on the mirror, just to let the other know that we are thinking of them. It's cleaner then lipstick. LOL
Later I am going to have lunch with my Mom (heart my MOM) and then head down to Strawberry Fields to hang with Pam this afternoon. Tonight we will head for Church and then home to snuggle up and watch the other half of American Idol.
This weekend we are all going to go out as a family, so the celebration will continue. LOL I did say I was having a birthday week.

Treasure Box.

I made this little treasure box last night. It is just a cigar purse that I picked up at Micheal's for cheap and some wallet size photos that I had left over from another project. TFL

Birthday Week!

I can't believe I forgot to post that today was the official start to my Birthday Week. On Wednesday, May 13th, I will be 28 years old (GASP!) already. Time seems to fly. Seems like I was just 16. The older I get, the faster time goes by.
Look at this cool cake. I want one! LOL

MOJO!!!! Where are you?

Mojo, oh mojo, oh where have you gone? I have been in such a slump the past couple of weeks, nothing is surfacing, no sparks in the brain, my creative juices are all dried up. Not to worry this happens every so often and when it finally returns I am better then ever. I just wish it would hurry up and be over.BTW I am super excited about the upcoming class, the seats are filling.

Upcoming Class

Here is a sneak peek of an exciting class at Strawberry Fields. In this class I will teach you to create a worn leather look with plain old chipboard. Other techniques will be distressing, embossing, and clustering. If you like the look of the class but can not attend, we can ship you a kit. Just give Pam a call at 239-540-2875 and she will set aside a class kit just for you.
