Storage solutions

I have spent a lot of time looking for a sewing box and I just couldn’t find one…. So I headed to the local hardware store and found this tool box and I have to say it works great! This was the only one they had a Lowe’s and one of the latches was a little bent. I asked if they could give me a discount and sure enough I got this $60 toolbox for $20. Goes to show it never hurts to ask. 

I have added magnet strips to the side to hold my needles, the tread fits perfectly in the drawers. It is a little heavy but worth having all the stuff neat and organized

A fun get away

 Such a great time out fishing with my husband last weekend. It was so nice to get away for a while and this giant fish made my day. I gave her a kiss and sent her back to a happy life.

Not goodbye just see you later

The Lord took my daddy home yesterday morning. After a hard fight with brain cancer that was stealing his mind he had a stroke Friday afternoon that took his voice and use of his right side. I am so happy he is now home and back with my mother. It was a long hard road but I am so glad I got to spend this time with him. Not goodbye just see you later Daddy.

Pancake contest

My brother is having a pancake contest tomorrow.... well I don't do pancakes but I do cakes. It looks a little burned in the photo but in real life it's so cute. I made my favorite rum cake and poured rum syrup between the layers then I made a sauce from sugar and rum and colored it to look like maple syrup.

Police Car

This was a cute card that Sue made I just had to give it a try too. You can find the pattern here. I really enjoyed making this one. It also came with the SVG cut file but I can’t get it to work with sure cuts a lot 2,  so I just cut it by hand. When I do it again I will use white paper for the car, our police cars are white and sheriff cars are black.

On a roll

I am really on a roll, 2 projects and it’s only the 1st week of January!!!! This project also came from SVGCUTS.COM. Ok right up front they do give you a video you can watch and walks you through these projects…. And boy did I need it! I wish they were on paper so I could go back and work at my own pace. This book was a bit harder for me; ok A LOT harder for me. I am not sure I will try this one again anytime soon.  There are 5 projects in this file so I am sure I will find one I love in it too.  Customer Service at was amazing! I had lost part of a file after I downloaded it I emailed them and they opened the file up again for me and told me if I ever needed it again just let them know they would be happy to open it for me anytime. Now that is great for someone like me who has computer issues on a regular basis. Let me know if you have tried their files and what you think.

1st Project of 2012

 My first paper craft of 2012 and I hope I will have more time to craft this year!!!I bought this SVG (December Gifts) from HERE and I really love it. It was not hard but it was very time consuming. I will make this one again for sure. I wish I would of used prettier paper, I just grabbed a handful I had on my desk to give it a try. I hate to use my best paper for 1st time projects.
