I have been having major problems with our internet... I am really going through some tough
it's not pretty people, not pretty!
Seriously, someone needs to mend this quickly so I can do all of the things I want to do on the blog.
I have so many ideas to share,
posts that I NEED to post.
I have been thinking of ways that I would change up things over here.
Post more, tutorials coming your way, lots of fun things on the horizon...
now I just need our router to cooperate!
As soon as it does, I want to show you some of the fun I have been having over here!
(Right now I am sitting in the public library in the young adult room,
acting like a young adult,
and whining because I miss all of my friends!)
Until this gets worked out these librarians can expect to see much more of me around here!
I don't let myself whine for too long though
on to happier things...
This was one of our presents from Hannah...
another reason why her and I love/stalk
She saw this idea on there and then proceeded to make three of them to give as presents!
I think it turned out beautifully, I love the little girl that Hannah painted, blowing bubbles
under a rainstorm of green and yellow.
Also, before Christmas I won a giveaway from Jeanine over at
I received a box stuffed with crafting supplies and oh my gosh,
I cannot wait to show you some of the creations that come from
She is not only generous in her giveaway but she give us doses of inspiration on a daily basis...
go and check her out,
you will be so glad that you did!
Hannah, Max and I were all digging through the box, coming up with ideas for all of the goodies!
(Jeanine's picture, we tore the box open like wild animals-
I think we are lucky the mail lady will still deliver to our home!)
For instance Jeanine put a paper mache' dress form in the box
and I snagged it before the kids did, because a couple of years ago
I made this silver platter assemblage and it sold on etsy,
and I have been wanting one of my own for a while now
so THANK YOU Jeanine for contributing to our crafting habits!
I think my new one will be wearing some of the hand stamped ribbon that was in the prize box!
THANK YOU JEANINE!!! XOXO
You see, I have so much to share with you...
but the girls just flickered the lights over here and I think that must mean last call
or something, so I gotta say good by for now.
Please know that I'm thinking about you and wondering what you have been up to!
You can bet there will be a great game of catch-up the next time I can link up,
whether here at the library or hopefully in the comfort of my own home, where people
won't look at me weird when I laugh out loud or ooooh and ahhhh while
oogling all of your beautiful creations!
I hope you have a fabulous 2012, full of love, laughter and many blessings...
in other words...
may your cup spilleth over!
and when it does, may you have a super sized
to mop up the excess!!!
