Wow it's already Thursday! I have been busy painting my mother in laws room this week. She is visiting with Robert's sister for a couple of months but will be back in December. I wanted to get the room painted and decorate some to surprise her when she returns.
Tomorrow night I will be in my studio working on a few projects so be looking for posts this weekend. Thanks for stopping by.
Thank you to all the Veteran's that sacrifice so much for us and for our country. May God bless each of you 10 fold.
Happy Veteran's Day!

Using you sheet of stamped die cuts and embellish away. For the holes along the spine use 3 small pieces of ribbon, threaded through and tied in square knots. This finishes of the project nicely and hides the holes. Don't forget to inking the edges of your cards.

Make this book you need 2 - 2 inch book rings, poster board, tabs, titles, inks, stamps, and ribbon. Cut front and back from poster board 6x6. Cover and decorate with your favorite papers. Cut out 10 Tabs of coordinating CTMH cardstock colors and lots of fun ribbon to dress up those rings. Let me hear from you if you have any questions. Thanks for stopping by.
This is a little book I made that shows my
CTMH stamp inventory. I got the idea originally from Becky and then Beth made a similar one. Thanks for sharing ladies! Then at one of our crops we made them together and Beth lead us in the is project.
I love it because when I want the perfect set for a project I don't have to sort through all the stamp containers. The Close to My Heart Idea Book has the stamps set up by theme/season and they are color coordinated. So we followed that same idea. The tabs are all color coordinated to match the idea book themes/seasons. So if you are looking for a floral set you know most likely it will be in spring/floral which is buttercup in color. So you flip to the buttercup spring/floral tab. Viola!

We all learned how to mosaic 6x6 wooden picture frames. Everyone did such a great job and each had it's own look. Very cool! We all enjoyed making them and want to do more. It actually took 2 days to make. 1st day we created by glueing different colors of glass to our frame either in a pattern or wreckless abandon. Day 2 we grouted our artwork....that was kind of fun too. Someone said "It's like making mud pies". The frames had to sit over night after each step. The day we were leaving our masterpieces were complete and each one was special. Once they were cleaned up and the grout dried and lightened up they beautiful!!!
