My 1st ever blog award

Even though it took me 3 days to see it, I have received my first ever blog award :) from Miss Virginia over at Celtic House.
I have to pass it on also. So here you go ladies :)

Now I have to list 10 things that make me happy:
1) coffee
2) seeing my kids smile
3) texts from far away friends
4) sunshine
5) cooking and baking for my kiddos
6) my grand daughters smiles and coos
7) friends that love me even if I am different lol
8) discovering blogs with beautiful pictures
9) 1 to 2 hour phone calls with my sister
10) projects that I thought were going to be difficult but proved to be easy

Wow, that was a bit harder than I thought. Granted just because I put coffee lol as #1 doesn't mean it is #1 on my list, I just put them as I thought of them. I have had maybe 1/2 hours sleep in the last 24 so it is a bit difficult to think straight at the moment.

Hope everyone has a wonderful day. We are in the middle of a snow storm that has stalled over our region. It is gorgeous out there right now but I am so tired of this winter wonderland lol

Late posting my pics today. We have gotten slammed by a lovely (insert sarcastic tone) snow storm here and well I was busy shoveling earlier.
But anyway here are the pics of my desk that I took this morning.
 Stood a big farther back this time. I have so much going on and it all has ended up on the desk.
 Closeup. Still working on yoyo's, baby's teddy bear, haha have my nail polish sitting there too. Hopefully by next wednesday nothing will be on there lol Well, not these projects anyway.
Since I did a swing the last two times I decided to go to the left and down a bit. The left underneath of my desk is where I store all my paper. Top shelf is 8.5x11 and 6x6. Bottom is 12x12. In the milk crate is my stash of magazines, it is full to the brim and HEAVY!!! The jeans sitting in the pile are going to be made into skirts (well, I hope so anyway lol).
Well that is about it for today. Be sure to pop on over to Miss Julia's (our ever faithful WOYWW leader) page to see the rest of our desks :)

Keeping busy

When lil one was born my sister sent flowers, this cute plastic flower bowl is what is left lol Well, I needed something prettier to store my loose flowers in :) so, I added 2 rows of lace, beading and stick some miscellaneous flowers together to make a big pretty one.
 And wahla a totally new and cute flower storage :)
 I am attempting to make a mini-skirt out of a very long skirt I bought at the local Goodwill a couple years ago. Have it all pinned, I just need to find time to sit at the machine and get to it.
 I decided that lil one needed a handmade stuffed bear :) My mom made all her grandkids monkey dolls, I'm not that patient lol! So, I'm making this. Will post pics when it is done.
 Just had to share the card we made at Stamp Club on friday night :) I think it is so cute. Alas, it is not staying here with me, it will be buzzing off soon to someone special :)
Well we have snow in the forecast from today till friday so I won't be outside much. Plan on staying in where it is warm and toasty :) Will be back soon with pics of finished projects and who knows what else.
Have a good one all :)

A few more journal pages

These are some more of the older ones I have done. I had planned on doing some work in there this weekend but well I never got to it. I'm basically learning as I go lol I don't know alot of techniques and I am still trying to conquer my fear of being messy haha. But I am getting there.
Well back to sewing yoyo's for my curtains because although I really like them, they blend into the walls and need a little something extra.
Kiddos go back to school tomorrow so I am hoping I have a little more "me" time to work on my projects.
Thanks for stopping by :)
