Oui



Okay now I may be carrying the Paris theme of my craft space 

with empty yogurt glasses a bit to far. LOL

I have been meaning to try this oui brand of yogurt. Since

it was on sale at Marc's last week I gave it a whirl, and I like it! Nice

and fluffy. Tastes smooth, and silky. 

Really like that the containers are glass. Great to store things in. 


On the side view you can see that I've filled these with

strings of pearls. 

Wasn't sure how to pronounce the yogurt's name. I always thought

it was pronounced WE in French. Here is a video I found on You Tube. 


Not pronounced the way I thought.

Envelope Book with Embellishments.


This is an envelope book. 

Used acetate to make the cover. I was surprised that

acetate scores pretty easy. Did it on my score board. 

The inside envelopes I made using the envelope punch board. 


The four envelopes are held in the book with twine. Can't

see the twine from the inside. It only shows on the outside cover.



Inside each envelope there are handmade embellishments. Bows in this one. 


Mini banners in this one. I used pop dots on the back of 

each banner. I added glue to the back of the paper backed dot then

attached to the cardstock. This way the person who receives it can remove

them to use. 


Flower in this envelope. Made with a scallop punch, and lace. 


and the last one has two tags with butterflies. 

Each of the card pieces to hold the embellishments 

were embossed first with different folders. 



Saying a prayer for Nathan Jackson as he had

to get a port put in yesterday, so he can start chemo. 

Hang in there Nathan. You were a tough, and sweet little boy when 

I first knew you in SC, and you still are. Also sending thoughts, prayers and

hugs, to his mom. A very dear friend of mine Marianne.

New York ATC


Just playing around yesterday afternoon with

some artist trading cards. 

Wasn't really in the mood to do anything, but forced myself to

get something created. 

I got a emboss it clear dabber at Catan's. It is pretty cool. 

You just dab on the  embossing ink wherever you want it 

 then heat emboss. I used clear powder for these cards. 

Me and hubby went to the drive in last night saw Toy Story 4, and the

new Spider Man movie. Didn't get home till after 2 this morning! 

Toy Story was just as funny, and endearing as the other movies where. 

Laughed a lot, and I cried at the end. 

Spider Man was awesome! Hubby didn't care for it as much, but I loved it!

Pattern Paper Flower Pot


This project was a little bit different. Has

the same concept as a loaded bag, but instead

of decorating a plain bag, you create a flower pot to 

hold goodies in. 


Closer look at the rosette flowers that decorate the front of the pot. 


And here is a back view. I made a small pocket that attaches to the back. 

Needed a little more room to hold embellishments. 


side view. 

You can see how the paper curves to form the flower pot. 

The pot was made with a sheet of 12x12 pattern paper. The

rim the runs around the entire pot was made with cardstock. 

Going to be another hot day! I'll be staying nice and cool in the 

house, and will be working on the upcoming garage sale.

Women with Attitudes ATC


Made some artist trading cards featuring women with attitudes. 

All colored with Prisma pencils. Backgrounds done with stencils, and

washi tape.


Closer view. I did use a paper straw to embellish at the bottom. 

Due to shipping though I flattened the straw so it wouldn't be so bulky. 


Love this one. See how the women is looking at the statement. Don't cross a woman. 


This one has the best use of the all the different washi tapes. At

least I think so. 

All created for a swap I joined. 

Went to Tuesday Morning yesterday. Found a few goodies for the stamping chateau. 

Sometimes you can find pretty good craft supplies there for a great price. 

Today I need to finish working on hems for John's pants. I don't think he

has ever bought a pair of pants that I didn't need to hem. Good thing he has

mom that will still fix them for him. While I'm working on sewing I might

as well do some other things that are in need of mending.

More Photos of the Little Party for Em


One of the things we did on Sunday was practice with the bustle

on Em's wedding dress. 

Love the photo of mom, and daughter. 


Also love that the bride to be always wears mismatched socks. 

How fun! 

From the left, Sarah, Caitlyn, Emily, and Anne. 

I was bad, and did some shopping with Betty on Tuesday at Catan's. 

picked up just a few more things. Sorry but I put everything away

this time without taking a photo first. Lets just say it was more than

the last photo I posted of my Catan's haul. 

Yesterday I drove up to Joann's and got a few more things. I'm 

working on getting things I know I will be using for the craft fairs I 

plan to take part in. Not this holiday season, but for next year. 

I've already started working on stuff to sell at my table.

Bride to Be Banner


Bride to be banner that I made for Emily's party on Sunday. 


Closer view. I used a large alphabet stamp set for the 

lettering. Added some white, and gold paper doilies. Then

added some flower embellishments. 


Emily with her Here Comes the Bride message cookie. 

I think I surprised her. Look at the smile! She always takes a great photo. 


Got the cookie from Giant Eagle. They do a great job with the message cookies. 


and one more photo of the girls working on their shadow shaker boxes.
