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

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

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

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

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?

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.

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

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..

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

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

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

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
Flu yucks.
Sunday, January 04, 2015      4 comments

Well, been going around today with a touch of the flu I think, not tossing cookies, but what I've got isn't fun. I have a headache right now, and I've been sneezing like crazy. That's the way our daughter's flu started, a cold, and now o... Read more

Wow, busy New Year already. We were gone until yesterday, and been up and running ever since, but in a good way. Did the Shop N Grab today, it went so well. We raised (once we paid the $300 for groceries and $50 for second place), $1100, ... Read more
