Thanks for stopping by friends. I hope your enjoying your weekend. We have wind and an overcast  so that means no painting for me today. Ive been trying to keep very busy while in the house. I'm on the HCG diet and its been difficult to keep food off my mind. I figure the best thing for me is to keep my hands as busy as possible. So here is what Ive been up to.

 Coffee filter roses

 Something old made new again

Will I'm back to the work bench for now
See ya soon

Hi Friends

Sorry about the dry spell but its been very busy around here. We had our grandson Christopher stay with us for a few day…OMG…what a joy!! It was our first time to have him stay over night. He is almost two years old and super cute!! We did every thing we  could cram into four days. Playing in the sand…riding in the red wagon…fishing…coloring…patty cake….baking cookies with Popo…singing…playing air guitar…peek a boo….hide and seek….and a little shopping. OOooo I mustn’t forget we watch his fav movie at least 6 times….Nemo. Love that fish. Here are a few pictures of our time together. I hope you enjoy.

Burrrrrrrlap And The Blues

Hi Friends,

I hope you have been  staying warm and cozy on this chilly day.
I've clean out the last two closets in the house and played my fare share of farmvill.
I was thinking about getting my jewelery stuff out and creating something marvelous
but I'm more in the mood to just watch tv and sip on something warm.
My sweet friend at Simple Daisy has been crafting with burlap today and I thought I would show off my burlap lamp shade. Burrrrrrlap seems to be appropriate for the weather. LoL ok ...
I'm not a very good comedian.

Let me start with my sweet little blue side table. I finished it a few days ago and really wanted to share it with you but I have a warning for you fellow artisans.
When you have a project on hold for a long period of time, put your peaces and parts some where safe.
Somewhere that you wont forget where you put them!

 I asked my sweet hubby....
Me: Sweetie have you seen the cup with the hard ware for my side table any where?
DH: No
Me: Darn...I cant find it and I'm finely finished and I want to take pictures for my blog
DH: Where do you think they might be?
Me: I had them in the garage last
DH: Have you looked everywhere?
Me: Wellllll  HONEY...if I looked everywhere I would have found them ... I guess..
DH: I'm just trying to help.

Anyway here is the side table with out hard ware and my burlap lamp shade.

Sorry I don't have any beautiful sunshiny pictures to share with my friends in the Midwest.....
its 20 degrees here and very windy...
Toooo cold for a Texas girl
