Blog Problems

Good morning everyone, finally I think I am ready to make a post.  Right after the first of the year my blog  went crazy.  The background was too small.  I am not the most computer savvy person so I worked with it forever,  Hubby said he would help, but me being just a bit....stubborn said no I'll do it myself.  Well finally I did listen to him and got it back to normal, I think.  

I want to share with you some things I made for my sis and daughter for Christmas.   I made them both a fabric pin.  The photo is of my mom and dad, one I have always liked. 

My sis is redecorating her bedroom in more of a primitive decor, so I wanted to do something that would go with her room.  This is what I came up with.

Also made her this pincushion.

My daughter is a bit of a minimalist, doesn't like a lot of things sitting around or any clutter at all, I made her this wall hanging.  The little locket has a picture of her husband and daughter in it.  

This is what my sis made for me.  I love it, she calls it  "Life".

I really enjoyed Christmas this year.  I loved getting back to the basics and making most of my gifts for people.  I have been very busy getting new things ready for the booth at the antique mall.  Got all the Christmas out and thinking ahead to Spring.  I am going to try and add more to Etsy as well, I have really neglected it.  

The weather today is beautiful, we had a couple of really cold days with about  1 1/2" of snow.  That small amount of snow really caused a mess on our roads here in Missouri, but now it is all gone and is suppose to warm up even more this week.  Everyone enjoy your Sunday and those of you who are off for MLK day on Monday.

Hugs Jackie

Lovely things you made Jackie!
The 'life' board your sister made for you is a super idea.
I'm thinking I could make one each for my angels room!!
Come and see my latest angel - just one week old!

ps - I've had Blogger problems too - not able to leave a comment on certain blogs - all to do with their new 'Threaded comments interface'. I hope they get it fixed soon..... grrrrr!!!!!
