Texas Weather

I know ya'll probably don't want to here about our weather in Texas but I'm gonna any way....It is raining Hallelujah!!! And I do believe it's getting cooler, well out of the 80's anyway, lol.  This will be the first year in a while that the kids will be able to wear their costumes and not sweat to death. I'm trying to stay more active and post more files on here.  My Mom has moved in with me and that has been an adjustment, but I do believe we are getting into the hang of it. (Living together) I will stop before I bore you to death and start making more files and hopefully make more pages in my scrapbook and a few cards.

Happy Halloween Everybody,

New Craft Studio

This last picture is of the old room I'm moving out of. The two top pictures are the new room, I"m getting it done slowly.
I have been so busy lately. I have turned my garage in to a beautiful Studio just to do my crafts and sewing. I out grew my 15x10 bedroom. I had to put away my new sewing machine into the closet because of no space, my scrapbooking and cardmaking were more important. LOL.   I hired someone to close it in for me, but I've done the rest,  I think I've done pretty good. I repainted, One wall is White and the rest are a very light Pink. I stained the concrete and it looks pretty good, I was hoping for the best.   I bought peg board and painted it a very light green, to put all of my stickers and die cuts on, I didn't realize it until I started digging through my drawers that "I have a problem"It's called Scrapbooking. You know that show Hoarding, I think I might have a problem too. LOL Really though I covered a 4 x 8 foot sheet of peg board with all the stickers and die cuts. I didn't know I had that much, I thought I had a problem with paper buying, I have got ever color under the sun, sometimes I think I have more that Hobby Lobby, really because I don't sell my paper I hoard it. LOL....Well it not the best in the world, or fancy because I'm not a carpenter but It will be big enough for my friend and I to come and crop with me. I'm very proud of my room, I'll go take pictures for ya......
Until Later Gators,

Just another Saturday

Just another typical Saturday.  Done some scrapbooking this morning, then got ready and went to Lufkin, (it's the nearest larger town to me that has a Hobby Lobby).  I tell ya, I would be in deep trouble if that store was any closer. I can't go in there without spending 100. to 150. dollars everytime. It was a nice drive though.  I am remodeling my 2 car garage into my scrap room. I can't wait till it's finished. will post pictures as soon as I start, wish me good luck, I need it.
Until later,

New year

Well everybody this is a New Year, so lets be positive and make this one a great year to remember.
Does anyone know what you have to do to get free things to give away on your blog, or do people buy them theirselves? Just was wanting to get my followers up, and offer them something in return. Maybe some free svg files' who knows. I'll try to get something going...
