Time Flies...

I can't believe it's been over a month since I posted anything. Several things have been a contributor to my absence. First I'll blame the Twilight books. I am now finished with all of them, and kinda sad that I am. I really really enjoyed them. Second I've been workind outside in the yard and garden alot trying to get everything planted and trimmed. A lot of work but nothing picture worthy yet. I just finished a couple of projects I thought I'd share.....

I put down laminate wood floors in my craft room, and I love them so far. They were fairly easily to install once I got them started. My cat loves them more than I do, and I have no idea why. He is always sprawled out on it. Avery pefers to be pampered with his pillow and rug.

Speaking of animals, last night I babysitted my Mom's pomeranian, Bella (she was named before I started reading Twilight). I sat down to paint and she hopped onto my lap and the next thing I knew she was laying on the table on top of all my stuff. She thought that's where she belonged.



Actually I don't blame her, since my cat still thinks she's an oversized rat and tends to stalk her whenever she comes over.

On to a couple of projects. I've been playing around with my Cricut vinyl cutter and with embossing my own metal tiles. I combined the two for a house warming gift for my cousin.


I've been working on some picture frames to sell at my shows in the fall, and these are the first two I've finished. I painted the letting on them and then lightly sanded it to look worn. I'm having a long of fun making these....

I just adore your frames and signs! I can't wait to check out your ETSY shop. I am so inspired by all you ETSY'ers that I am starting one too.
