Beautiful snow; Bengal home, and Turkey

Monday, January 26, 2015      4 comments

Have a slight stomachache today, not sure why, thinking it may be my back? I really need a new chair for this computer. Fixed a turkey dinner, or should say I got it ready, just have to cook it all. My husband told me to leave the skin on... Read more

Lots done today.

Saturday, January 24, 2015      3 comments

Been busy today; washed the floors in all the rooms and by the doors; vacuumed, washed dishes, cleaned out the coffee pot (it's a double one and overflowed this morning, making a mess); helped put outdoor Christmas stuff away. Then went to chur... Read more

Boats and poles

Thursday, January 22, 2015      2 comments

Got my exercises done, been doing some research on unusual games, etc for a bachelorette party (daughters maid of honor was asking and the woman who owns the bar was, too). I don't know if I mentioned it, but I found something that will ens... Read more

Accomplishments are great.

Well, got clothes washed, got the flower balls finished, and started working on the boats without the moss, and the burlap doesn't stick like I'd hoped. I'll have to find another type of glue, this one just isn't working. Going to try tacky glu... Read more

Weather, Flowers, and Birthday Pic

Tuesday, January 20, 2015      2 comments

I cannot believe the snow has been melting, we didn't even have our winter yet...but then it'll probably come in the spring. I finished the throw bouquet last night, which I'd waited to check with our daughter and her fiance to see if the... Read more

A New Day

Monday, January 19, 2015      7 comments

Today is a beautiful day, I love summer, but I also love all the seasons, guess that's why I live in Wisconsin. Winters have changed so much, though, we don't get near the amount of snow that I used to love getting; and the summers aren't as ho... Read more

Yikes, stencil meltdown....kind of..

Friday, January 16, 2015      7 comments

well no doing more mugs, the stencils are going to heck. *L* I've been thinking about getting one of those sandblaster type etchers, not sure, though. I hope you have a wonderful day and things go every way you want. Take a smil... Read more

Maybe solution?

Thursday, January 15, 2015      5 comments

Well I tried something else, BUT it means I'll have to scratch off the paint from the jars, and I'm still not sure they're showing up good enough. It seems in some light it shows up pretty good, but in others, not so much. Read more

A bit of frustration.

Wednesday, January 14, 2015      6 comments

Having a LOT of trouble with the mason mugs we ordered for their groomsmen. I personalized the ladies glasses, but because of the paint coating on the mugs, I can't do that, it's driving me insane! I've tried etching cream; frost spray, and... Read more

Day plans

Been searching for trim for the dress, but unable to find it, so I called the store it was purchased from and they tell me it's an applique, but have no idea what it's called, or where to buy more. ARGGGGGHHH. Ok, that's out of my system, I... Read more

Beads and more beads..

Monday, January 12, 2015      5 comments

Yesterday was great, nice weather, had the entire family here (son, daughter, and her fiance, and our grandpup). Went to the local bar and watched the game, which was awesome, btw. I've been working on the beads for our daughter's wedding d... Read more

Electricity...what electricity?

Friday, January 09, 2015      3 comments

Our electricity went out around 10 last night and came back on at 3am...the house was COLD, thank goodness for a waterbed. Still never found out why it went out, but this has happened twice in the last month. They seemed to insinuate it was a ... Read more

Undecorating and decorating.

Thursday, January 08, 2015      3 comments

wow, driving in that weather was nasty, the roads were starting to drift and once in a while I'd hit a spot that it was pure white out conditions. However, I did it to take our daughter her Birthday flowers and Hostess Cupcake with candles. Wh... Read more

More wedding things and weather.

Tuesday, January 06, 2015      3 comments

Ok, now I got the chair covers, and bands to put on them (with a little round crystal buckle), I'm going to be looking for some shimmery green-teal material to finish off the "bow" on the back, now. I also need to pick up some blue cellophane f... Read more

Wind Chills

Monday, January 05, 2015      4 comments

Feeling much better today, thank goodness. Still have a few aches but they'll go away, I'm sure. Going to rest somewhat today, did my exercises, but those were needed. But I won't be leaving the house and running around; and the only call... Read more
