Hello Everyone,
I made these flowers and showed to a few friends. They wanted me to show them how I did them. Although I think we all made them in grade school. LOL Okay maybe that shows my age*Wink*.

This one I made with old pieces of patterns from my mom from her seamstress days. I glitz spritz it from Lindy's stamp gang. Love that stuff.

This one is made from $1.00 store white tissue and used the glitz spritz and painted it with a paint brush. A pretty bead glued in the center. Still have to make the leaves.

Here is the *LINK* to the video.

On to my day. Last night Mom called and said she thought that yellow jackets were getting into the attic. She wanted Michael to come and take a peek. So we went over there. He climbed up there and looked around but didn't hear or see anything. She was relieved to hear that. I will go and see her tomorrow to take her to grocery shopping.
also had to go get a new sticker for my car so I can get on base. MOm shouldn't be driving that much yet. I have been trying to get that sticker done for months and just now got it. It is a pain in the butt and you sit there forever like if you went to the DMV.
I am gonna try and have another video done tomorrow. We shall see. It depends on how late it is with Mom. It might be Thursday.
Okay kids I have bored you long enough. Working on goodies for the give away. Just running behind with my hands. still hard to sew yet. When you see the video you will see what I mean.

Happy anniversary/Father's Day~ Hubby

Today 29 yrs ago today I married my hubby. Can I say WOW, hard to believe it has been 29 years. It seems longer but I am grateful for every single day. He has such a big heart.
Just like this picture of these two very different trees. One is a cedar and the other a pine, they can't help but be together. Joined for life. Michael and I found these on our trip the other day. I thought it was sweet and so did he. He made a comment about it, that was like us. Very different but the same where it counted.

We plan on going out for dinner but hope we don't have to wait in line.

On another happy note I got my new table set up. Ikea was a huge success. Lots of goodies to organize the studio. Still lots to do but hope to get it cracked out sometime this next week. Another busy one for me with Mom. I had a migraine on yesterday which took most of my day in bed.

Isn't this wonderful, sorry but I am so excited by this huge table. It measures 50" L x 31" W. Glass top. I bought a new matt to cover it so I won't scratch or chip it. The drawers are wonderful. 10 drawers more then I had in my previous table. I can't wait to get it all done with the stuff I need close.
Well I better scoot folks. I need to jump in the shower and get ready to go. Have a good one. Happy Fathers day to all the dads.

A Sunday Drive

Post # 335. WOW! Not bad for someone who does not post but once a week. ha ha.
Today hubby woke me up early:(. I really wanted to sleep in but he was on a mission so I guess I will forgive him. He wanted time with me. Now how can I be mad? I can not. So I got ready and he said bring your camera. YAY!
What a wonderful time we had. Driving through this beautiful country side. A beautiful spot called Dewatto Bay. The Dewatto River & Anderson Creek Flow into the sound. Making up Dewatto Bay.

We went for oysters. Yummy. So I got to take pictures and hubby got his oysters. I ate a couple but I am allergic to iodine so I can only have a few at a time. Hubby fries them up so nice.

This is for Tracy. Show hubby. I think it is funny. This is a little gravel pit that hubby stopped at just for you guys. :) Ha ha
I did not edit the picture in case you wanted to use it for your 365 project. tee hee I know really tiny huh? Well see that is how it is done around this area cause of the trees. Old river bed this is.

Just look at this magnificent tree! It reminds me of something out of fern gully or Robin Hood. I fell in love with this old tree and call it the fairy or faerie tree.

Lastly I took a few shots of our wild rhododendrons. They are so very pretty and the bees were very busy today. Actually I took over 100 photos today. Have to share a few at a time. So long to edit them all.

House gets back to normal tomorrow. Plan on running an errand and cleaning up this joint. I am looking to going to Ikea here hopefully this week so I can get my new table. I can't wait to have the studio all done and organized. Let the creating begin.
Have a wonderful week.

Yet another video project

Yep, I am home for another really short break but the good news is it is my last break. I will be home for good on Tuesday. Mom is being quite ornery, so I know she is feeling better. Right now I know I am not even needed but wanted so I am staying a few more days until she goes to the doctors. Her dog will get to come home this next weekend. I know they both will be so happy when that happens.

I created another piece for the Lindy's Stamp Gang Under the Sea contest. I just had to make one more project for it. I don't expect to win but sure having fun trying ;)

here is the video link

I don't know why I am still so nervous doing these. I got squeaky on one part. I don't understand why? I gotta stop that. I sound like a dork, but I hope to grow out of it. LOL

Okay I know this is a short post but I am very tired. I was up so very late last night trying to finish this project. Want a hot shower and a nice soft pillow.
See you Tuesday!
