A little of what I've been up to....

Here it is, finally the things I've been putting on hold for a very long time and finished a few up so far today.

The first is my bedroom. I found this great saying and had to have it up on my wall in my room. I absolutely love it! I found this lamp at a yard sale with an ugly white shade, so I bought it for 4.00 and recovered the lampshade in some pink ribbon I had. (Yes, my husband lives in a pink bedroom)I also found this great idea from Everyday Velvet and Strawberries. It's taking these great Candylights and covering them with old patterns. It gives off a muted color and a very romantic dim light. I draped them over my headboard and kept it simple.

I also finished a purse I've been working on forever it seems. I made it out of a placemat and did some fun embellisments. I love it and it's fun for a night out or an afternoon of shopping.

So, you see I have had things on the table, just time escapes me and I can't get caught up. I'll be back with more tomorrow.. enjoy your day!!

"Mr. Deville, I'm ready for my close-up"... a famous line from Sunset Boulevard... I'm really back and ready to go..
So , thank you all for being so patient while I finshed up my graduation festivties and getting my daughter ready for her college career.
I have many projects to get finished up and get posted so you can see that I really do craft and create. I am working on some magnets, some pendants and would like to get going on jewlery. I have sewing projects to finish up and show you all what I've been up to. Again, thank you for allowing me this time to recoup and get myself back on track..."Oh, Mr. Deville!!!"
