Stitching & Sunshine

I actually had a wonderful day off , and it was so hot & sunny! I purchased a couple of those "zero gravity" loungers, and man are they awsome! They are so comfortable! Ive needed something for so long that we could all lounge on outside while reading or stitching.
See my new Amy Butler scrapbooking caddy? I bought it at Michaels the other day at 40% off. Its actually for scrapbooking but im using it for stitchery stuff, and eventually it may even make its way to my bathroom to hold all my products ...and all that other clutter that seems to come out of nowhere.

I hung laundry & layed around with not to much purpose. I saw all the yardwork around calling me & knew i should be working on that instead but tried to tune it out. I've so got the cross stitch bug right now!
So heres my little cross stitch cube I ended up with!
I used a couple different peices of random patterns & made it into one small peice. Im going to do that again. I need practice to ignore the vacumming, dishes, and housework & just "be" with the kids , watching them play. It was a great day......now back to the real world for a few more!

Lost In Space

yep, thats where Ive been alright! Im back and Im still alive! I have missed all you ladies so much, hopefully I have survived the worst of it all & am on my way to a calmer life order. So apparently Im now a framer. And I dont mean construction. Framer as in "art framing" . Who would have thought I would have ended up in the frameshop? Its really fun, mega pressure but fun! I wanted to show you a few of my favorite things I have purchased at Michaels since I started. Wow what a roller coaster! So this is a couple things I got with my 40% discount. This collage frame above, so loving it!
Arent these cute, the herb pots? Im so not a plastic plant kinda girl.....but these....how adorable?? And they look so real.
The other exciting thing I bought was a "crop-a-dile". If you do any sorta papercrafts , you probably know what i mean! Its a 8 way punch & setter in one hand tool & I love it. You can punch holes easy through huge thicknesses of paper, cardstock, you can even punch through plastic and thin metal tins! Here I punched through a sticky note pad to get a ring through.
these are little "breast cancer" awareness sticky note pads giftys. Attach them to a purse or keychain...whatever. They are 2.95 in my shop. they have a breast cancer logo on back all in pink & aqua. I would love to find some white note pads but for now all I can find is yellow.
I also managed to list a bunch of great aprons and some vintage sheet music, since its been sooooooo long since an update. Must really clean this neglected house today so gotta run. I do have some redwork in process to show you soon ... cant wait for the finished result.
