Someone once said -

"There comes a time in your life, when you walk away from all the drama and people who create it. You surround yourself with people who make you laugh. Forget the bad, and focus on the good. Love the people who treat you right and pray for the people who don't. Life is too short to be anything but happy. Falling down is a part of life, getting back up is living." Amen

NAture, Chloee, Pond

this little ground squirrel was peeking through the flowers

grabbing a peanut
 Our pond guy was over today and he gave the old pond a total overhaul...it is a self sustaining pond one that lives on its own eco system and the fish eat the plant life to survive . We have had it 4 years now and loving it more all the time...

It really needed it as the falls was just about stopped with over growth and gooy ooy stff!!! see the 1st photo...the second one is how great the falls is now flowing really strong...

all the cuttings from cleaning the pond out

the baby birds were sun bathing on the fence

look how wonderful the plants look all thinned out

the birds came to take a bath in the pond

I got a flower pot and put a large tile under it.

Trey thinned out the lily pads too..he always does such a great job

the table and shells

the birds on the feeder

Chloee was all tuckered out

Make a Cute Headband Holder

I was at pinterest checking out the latest and saw this under "organization" and thought it was a great idea, any little girl would love....it is really easy,

  1. just get an empty oatmeal container,
  2. use some pretty fabric or some pretty scrapbook paper
  3. wrap it around the container measuring the exact fit
  4. don't forget the top
  5. for the top you will need to glue around the edge of the top and then push the fabric around easing it around and you might have to cut small slits to get the wrinkles to go away
  6. cut to fit [see the tutorial for exact fitting directions]
  7. either use double sided tape or I use all purpose crafting glue
  8. let it sit overnight if you glue it to set it
  9. After it has dried you can add a flower to the top either silk, or crochet one, or use some fabric and just hot glue it in place leting it drape ove and twist it in places to make it look pretty
  10. that's it now just wrap those headbands around it....

Craft Room Make Over

I'm cleaning my craft room...yippy!!! This is such a great sign to hang...

                                     It's starting to look like this one
I want to make it more managable so that I can find my yarn and also so I can at least know what project to do next.

I have been putting yarn to projects with the yarn in bags and have so many bags now that I cannot remember yet alone pick a project!!! So off to the store to get yet more plastic drawers to store my yarn in. and then to change the layout and then to start sorting. [I have already doen some of that....I was shocked at all the colors and different ply yarns I actually have...

I can dream look at this one....wow
Once it is clean I can actually have a meeting or two up there. :) maybe even a party... :)

This one is great too

Once I finish mine I will be posting

Big Kick--Macrame'--and Some Other Pretty Projects!!

I got a Big Shot Sizzix over a year ago and have never used it??? I was kind of intimidated with it I guess but after reading all the different uses that Keep Calm and Craft On has posted about it I am now excited to experiment with it...

With the right dies you can make just about anything from flowers to bees to any shape....and you can cut cans, burlap and fabric....yippy....

Remember in the 70s when we used to Macrame'??? Ok I am dating myself...lol....but I used to love doing it, well I found a couple of my mom's old books and have decided to try it again...one thing she made that I really loved was a hanging table....she was soooo talented... :)

Check out this beautiful bag...over at Expression's  handmade black crochet and macrame purse I just love this

My mom had made this one in white....don't know what happened to it but it always hung in the hallway..

Modern Craft has some great photos of Macrame' projects...

Ohhh and I love these

shown over at Macrame' Lovers site a great place for those who love Macrame'

This table even has a light in it... yummy   at Sheldon's Macrame'

No matter what you decide to make it is sturdy and can be so pretty...think of the possiblilities available for the patio or spare room or the living room...???

And for working in the garden I thought these crocheted gloves were too pretty....there is a FREE pattern on the site aren't these the prettiest green???  

And check out these cute hangers with an extra flower trim that makes them oh so femmine... over at MarmaladeRose
