Who Knew?

Today I was finally able to mail out my Mug Mat to Chris. I hope she enjoys it. I added a few extras for her also.

I went on the Fairy Generator and this is what it told me, Who knew? Also try the Witch and Warlock Generator. That is a hoot!

My fairy is Meadow Elffrost
She is cheerful and friendly.
She lives in fields where wild flowers and poppies grow.
She is only seen during the first snow of winter.
She wears a skirt made of red petals and has transparent green wings like a cicada.
Get your own fairy name from the Fairy Name Generator!

Last but not least these came with my daughter when she moved home.

This is Simba and Shoruyken. He is the Orange tabby and he is alomost 2. The Gray tabby is Shoruyken and she is 7 months and so sweet.

They joined our two dogs:

Riley and Izzy. Riley is a Boxer, is almost 7 and weighs 85lbs. Izzy is a Boston and she is 1 year old and has picked up the nasty habit of Kitty Litter diving. Anyone have any solutions it is just gross!

That is our youngest daughter Megan in the photo above with Izzy. I am going to leave you now I have to help Courtney finish up a baby quilt and get it to the quilt stor for quilting.
Have a Great Wednesday!

Swaps, Swaps and more Swaps! & Happy Valentine's Day-

With everything going on in my life these past few weeks I have also participated in 4 Paper Swaps and one Mug Mat Swap. Why did I do this I ask myself? Because it is the only way I will sit and Create.

First up is and ATC about "Love" that I sent to Patti in Oregon for the Blissful ATC Swap. Loved this swap and will be playing again next month.

This next ATC Swap was the Green Fairy Swap on Swap-bot. I sent this one to Italy.

The last two were Valentine Card Swaps with Altered Art Junkies ( second picture) where I sent cards to 9 different people and Swap Bot Ultimate Faves where I sent to 3 different people (first pic). I am still having photo posting problems.


Tomorrow I will post my Mug Mat Swap pictures and the new additions to our family since my daughter moved back home.

Where do I start?

I have to tell you the end of January and these first two weeks of February have been trying. First our oldest daughter who is 21 ended up having to move back home due to a roommate that was stupid and got evicted. We received this news the last weekend in January. My DH and I were upset but we were glad she was coming home for a few months. Then she finds out that she is going to owe thousands of dollars to the apartment complex even though she was not the one to get evicted. The same day she finds this out she runs into the back of someone and totaled her car! So now the few months has turned in to more than a year!

With her moving home my DH and I had to move out of her old room which had been turned into an office and my craft studio. We are now in the Living room!

Luckily, the insurance paid off her loan and we got her and I (since she is living at home) a new to us car.

I have been able to get a few projects done. I finally got the binding on both of these after a year and a half.

I also thought that I would post a few photos of an event that Courtney and I went to on January 15th. I finally got the photos off my camera. We had Cocktails with David Tutera from My Fair Wedding on WE.

That man is just too good looking. He was very nice and stopped for pictures with anyone who asked. The book signing line was two hours long because he took the time to speak to everyone and even got on the phone to talk to someone when asked. If you have not seen his show tune in on Sunday nights on the WE network. Great show!
I am off of here today I am getting very frustrated with blogger and how they are posting my pictures, I am having to edit the html after every upload. Ugh! I will be back tomorrow to post my Blissful ATC Swap and my Swapbot Swaps.
Good Day to everyone.
