Happy Valentines Day

I wish you all a Happy Valentines Day.  Keep everyone in your heart, tell them you love them and hug them a lot because life is short.  Make everyday Valentines Day.  Here's some hearts for all of you.

We are going out to dinner at one of our favorite restaurants The Texas Road House.  Have a fun day whatever you do.

Little Travel Journal and "Give Away"

My sis and I often take little trips to go junk shopping.....we spend a good amount of time lost, thank goodness for the Garmin.  We always make a travel journal before we leave to keep track of all our antics.   They are a lot of fun to look back on.  Here is one we made for a trip to Kansas City.

We used an old book cover for the front, then added various pages, some to write on, some with pockets to stick things in and some just for photos.  The rings make it easier to put more stuff in the book.  We always have lots of brochures, cards and even little mementos.  The journals make the trip a little more special.

Now for that Give Away.  I spent most of yesterday listing things on Etsy.  I listed several needle books and decided I would give one away.  I love to sew on cold Winter days.   If you must stay in, do something you enjoy.  I will also add a tag to the give away.  

Just leave a comment, you don't have to be a follower, but it would be nice if you were.  I would appreciate it if you would help me get the word out about the Give Away.  You have until February 28, then I will put every one's name in the hat and pick a winner.

Here is what you will receive.

New Year and Life Goes On

The year of 2013 was a very difficult year for me.  Selling our home, buying a new one and moving.  Our oldest daughter battled Leukemia and finally lost her battle in January of this year.  I did not blog much last year, just did not feel like it, so many ups and downs, stress, worry.   Today is the first day I feel like beginning again.  I have been creating things in the art room and would like to share a little.

I was published in the Winter issue of SEW Somerset.

My sis and I made Christmas Journals this year.  I haven't added much too it but it is ready when I get the time.  We both love Christmas so making the books was fun.

I have been working on this fabric memory book for a long time.  Finally decided to get busy and finish it.  The cover is not finished and I have a page to complete on the inside as well as some finish work on a couple of pages.   I will be listing it in my Esty shop soon, along with several new Needle Books.

I have never had a giveaway on my in the next couple of days I will be posting one.  Haven't decided yet what it will be, still working on that.  Have a great day.
