In early November I cruised to the Southern Caribbean
 with my three sisters and we had a great time together!
(see video on right)

I returned just in time for thanksgiving...

Then came my 50th Birthday 
which I shared with a few of my favorite friends.

Next up was my very first sewing lesson
with my new vintage sewing machine "Miss Daisy."

Can you believe I made this?

I have been resting for almost a whole day now but who knows what i'll do next...

Monday and the feeling is GOOD

I'm feeling real good today!  I had a not so nice week last week- woke up in the middle of the night last Sunday feeling sick and it went from bad to worse.  Can you believe I have'nt left the house in 8 days's just CRAZY...ME!

When I did start to feel better I got the urge to craft.
I made some more gift tags.

I made greeting cards with Vintage images.


And I made cards using stamped images.

Well, i'm still in the mood so off to the basement I go!

Lady Bug Flea & More

LADY BUG Flea & More is a cute shope owned by a sweet lady named Linda.
It is located in Monroe, Georgia and I have quite a few items in her shop on consignment.

I hand stamped these ribbons before attaching them to the shopping bags...a steal at only $2.00 each.

Hand Made Chenille Pillows and Quilted pillows for Fall.

love this vintage lamp and the shade matches it perfectly.

Christmas is just around the corner!

If this beautiful dress had been my would have been my purchase of the day!


Cute display.


If you or anyone you know is looking for a great shop
for booth rental or consignment give Linda a call!

Grandma's Art Camp

Let me introduce three lovely young ladies I had the pleasure of meeting and crafting with last week.
From left to right - Ruby, Simone and Maggie.

These are three lucky ducks because they get to have Art Camp each year at
grandma's aka Diana Thurmon (my painting instructor).

I was invited to do rubber stamp projects so I pulled out a few supplies and headed over.  We stamped mini greeting cards, turned cigar boxes into treasure chests and made name tags out of chalkboard paper.

We had loads of fun and I can't wait for camp next year!

Long Time No SEE

Wow! It has been quite a while since I was here. 
You know can get just a little bit crazy at times.
 I've been busy focusing on testing for my second degree Black Belt
as well as instructor certification in Karate.
  I know I earned my second degree but have not been told about instructor yet...
I have been teaching a Kickboxing class since last fall and our last class was this past wednesday. 
 I have also been working in the after school program and today was our last day. 
Now that I have some extra time on my hands i'll head to Tallahassee
 for a week to hang out with family to kick off the summer.
When I get back i'll begin a new project that i'm very excited about
... can't wait to let you in on the details!

I put on my "BOOGIE SHOES!"

Well they did'nt look just like these ...they were actually my Ahnu
Mary Jane sneakers...any how... I boogied on down to the basement and onto my treadmill for the first time this year and it was great! 
I have promised myself a sweet suprise if I walk three times a week until I have walked at least 21 times on the treadmill.
I'll let you know how i'm doing so that you guys can keep me honest.
I would love some company so let me know when you start so that I can keey you honest!
