Tea Towel Love

Ok, so I have a thing for tea towels...I don't know why I just think they're adorable! I designed and screenprinted these love towels today...although I painted the heart by hand.

I Have Been At It Again...

...exploring new crafts, that is! I have just started making stone tile coasters and I am loving the way they have came out! I like the fact that I have transferred the image right on to the stone and they aren't just decoupaged...I have also added 3 layers of sealent, as well.

Spring Is Coming!

I have also been working on these cute garden markers made from vintage sterling silver flatware...

New Bracelets!

I will stop beating myself up...okay, I will try to stop... I was hesitant to put these up because they are not the best pictures, but I do not have time to take great pictures, I would rather take the time to make more bracelets. So, I have decided to just put them up anyway...

Accessorize Me!

I just really started getting into making bracelets. I made this cuff bracelet today out of aluminum...but, I am practicing and on my way up to sterling silver. Silver is much too expensive for me to practice on, so aluminum seems to do the trick. I also started resin bracelets today, as well, but I have to wait 24 hours for those to harden completely...ugh, I have no patience! I can't wait! The kids and I have started making polymer clay stuff, too. I have been making so many charms and trinkets...I hope to put some of those up soon, as well!

Pumpkins, Punkins, & Jack O' Lanterns, Oh My!

Ok, so I don't have any jack o'lanterns to show you yet, but you get the point. I love Autumn in Upstate NY, there is nowhere else like it...nowhere as pretty this time of year anyway. Apple picking and pumpkin getting are two of my favorite days of the year.

Quote Me On This...

...I will never do Eagle Mills Craft Fair again...ok, well's just not likely. This is the worst I have ever done at this particular craft fair and I just feel it was a waste. I didn't do well, to say the least. Sometimes I think my "crafts" are way to trendy for a craft fair that is mostly country. I do not make those welcome signs and birdhouses. I don't do snowmen and american flag stuff. I am all about upcycling cereal boxes and sewing pretty aprons with modern fabric. I make wine stoppers with golf balls and purses with license plates. I make notecards and envelopes with leftover mail and magazines and table runners with a French printed look. I embelish onesies with adorable ties. I do not make country type crafts. Which means I do not make a profit. I make napkins with Audrey Hepburn on them. I think I live in the wrong place. Or is it me? It can't be...I refuse to believe... All I know is I watched a bunch of people buy the ugliest crap I have ever seen (geez, I can only wonder how their homes are decorated), and watched them look at my stuff and be in awe and adore the, but not purchase...

I Have To Tell You...

...Even though it reads, "Promise Not To Tell". I bought this book awhile back by Jennifer McMahon and I have had it sitting on my nightstand for some time now. I have bought and read numerous books since buying this book and setting it there...Charlie St. Cloud, The Lovely Bones, Bridges Of Madison County, name a few. Well, I don't know why I left it for so long! I kept looking at the reviews, thinking, " can't be that suspenseful, scary, etc?" OK, I was doesn't happen that often (lol :)), but I will admit it when it does. This book had me so scared I woke up my husband and couldn't sleep. Granted, I know there are scarier books (although I am more of a romance girl myself), but maybe it was the combination of a horrible storm and leaving off in the middle of the book where I did that freaked me out?! Whatever the case, it was an excellent book! I now wonder if they ever made a movie of this book?

I DO Love The Smell Of Play-Doh, But...

...I am not sure if I would want to smell like it??? I am undecided. I don't know if I love this and want it, or if I think it's gross...tough call on this one. What do you think?

Enter Here...

Green Craft is looking for crafters to send in their ideas. One of the things they are looking for is what you can do with a cork. Well, this is what I did...I made a photo holder with a champagne cork! I doubt it will be featured, but I like it! Cheap, recycled, and useful...

Hershey...So Mmmmmmmmmm!

If you are ever near Pennsylvania, you must visit Hershey! I haven't been there since I was little, but as an adult, I have wanted to take my kids there for years. Well, we finally did and they loved it! There's the Chocolate World, Hershey Park, Museum, and many more places that are just as yummy! Hey, if there is chocolate involved (and everywhere for that matter), it HAS to be wonderful! You can't go wrong!


OK, so it's been about a month and a half since the warranty place received my camera. I think that is sufficient time for fixing. What do you think? Because, you know what...I haven't gotten it back yet. It is killing me...I feel unable to express myself. I guess the only thing good that came out of this is that I learned how much I really do express myself with photography. OK, leason learned-now fix my camera and send it back to me!!!

Winner Winner Chicken Dinner!

OK, maybe not a winner in the $ sense, but this chick definitely won in the family department! We went to the track today...our yearly trip to the Saratoga Race Track...& while we didn't win too much $ (I think our biggest win was $5???), I have made out well as far as family...I love my little poodles more than anything...and this post is to say just that---that I love my babies more than life. I am truly blessed...thank you...

Pool Time!

Before my camera died (well, hopefully it's not dead, just a little under-the-weather), I got a few great pool shots...and what beautiful models I had!


Well, my "good camera" is not working. Needless to say I am devastated! I don't know what happened, why it isn't working. Luckily when I purchased it I did so with a five year warranty. Which is great, but it has been a pain already trying to open up a claim. Did you ever notice how hard companies make it for you to file a claim? All I know is I feel naked without it. Right now I am using my old point and shoot. I got a few nice pics the other day, but it is just not the same with out my Canon...tears :(...
