Just for you

I have had a goal that since I found out that a friend of mine has breast cancer and is undergoing radiation/chemo that I was going to try and give her a smile each week by sending her a handmade card.  I've done this each week normally on Saturday or Sunday I make her a card and then mail it on Monday...well this week I was late but it's in the mail today.  Please join me in prayer that cancer will be a thing of the past someday soon.  Early detection is still the key in being healed should one be stricken with it.  So make sure to get your yearly check ups and always do your own monthly self examinations.

Newest Projects

Hello Friends,

Well vacation days are over and here are the few projects I completed while on vacation.  The new stamp pad organizer was done while at the race track.  It was so windy that I didn't venture outside of the living quarters of the racecar trailer too much.

I will need to look back and see where I got the instructions for this and then give credit for it. Ok...found came from Karen Church's blog that can be found at it is not exactly as she designed it but somewhat close.  I just wanted to give credit where credit was due.

Then on Monday, while catching up on other stuff I managed to get my table painted. Here is view 1.

and here is view 2.

After I had my new stamp pad organizer in place I realized that I no longer had a place to display my wood mounted rubber stamps so I had to add a couple of shelves.  I was just going to get some of the prefinished boards but no one had the correct length of those available.  So I asked at the local Woodson's if they by chance had any scrap pieces of 1x6 or 1x8 boards? And they did!!! I was so excited!!! but when I got home with them to paint them white...I realized I was out of white paint and I wasn't going to make another trip.  So since I still had plenty of black paint still can see what I did.

That's all for now! Until the next time!

Craft room update life has been busy...and so I figured it was time for a little bit of an update on my blog. All I have to post are more pictures of my craft is slowly coming together. Bit by bit.  This past weekend I decided to build myself a new table.  I found the instructions online at Ana White's site here. She has an OVER abundance of plans.  I Absolutely love her site.  I still need to paint mine but here it is open.

and here it is closed.

Plan to paint it black I think. I may do the bottom section pink and the table top black...haven't decided completely just yet...but it may be a while before that is done.  I will eventually be my cricut who knows I may paint it green. LOL....

Here are more just general pictures of my craft room overall...

If it's not an's a container of freon! Note: the engine is still under the built in table above right behind the skirt!

As you can see I still haven't painted the window seat box either.  Hopefully I will do it and the table at the same time...or not!
