Happy Halloween Sweet Friends From Spiderman!

He's showing off his new thermos I bought him. Isn't he the cutest? He's got such a sense of humor too. Of course that's Spiderman on the thermos.
He's trying to look scary. Isn't he cute? He was so excited about being spiderman. I don't know if you can tell but the chest of the outfit has some kind of stuffing in it to make him look buff. He loves the movie too. I just love him to pieces!

Little Jars and Leftover Lace

Do you have any of these laying around your house? Do you know what else you can do with them besides put jelly in them? I saw these in a craft show one time and made mine a little different. But I thought it was a cute idea for your left-over scraps. It looks so pretty at night. Try it, you'll like it. Aren't they cute? Just use your scraps of lace. Embellish with buttons,pearls,vintage jewelry...whatever you have!

I like using the battery operated lights. It's a lot safer, especially around little ones! Buy them at the Dollar Store, it's a lot cheaper.

They look really pretty, huh? Sorry the picture is blurry. I need to read my camera manual. Yuck, I don't want to! Wouldn't this be cute for a wedding dinner? Or a tea? Or anything you want?

Making Soldered Charms

This is the first soldered piece of done. It's a lot of fun to do but I still need to practice. Do you like to solder?
This is the back side of the charm.

This is the second one I made. I'm going to make another one of her I think except I'm going to put the word "dream" on the bottom of the picture. I think that would better.

A collage of my grandson~Deacon!

Oh how I love my Deacon! He was a lot younger here but I just love him in these bibs. It was so fun to make. Don't you just love the teddy bear? I get a little manilla envelope every month from a place called Flights of Fancy Boutique in Fort Worth, Texas and one of them had him in there! I knew I had to use it in a craft with my Deacon in mind. The words, "How Can I But Love Him" is from an old hymnal that I have and I thought these words fit perfect.
I hope everyone is having a wonderful Monday. God bless!

Beautiful fall weather!

It has been beautiful hasn't it? I've been walking in the early mornings and it smells like Fall. It's so quiet and peaceful. It's my time with God. And I thank Him for this weather we are having. Take time to look at the changing of the season and thank our Lord for creating it for us. Have a great rest of the week! I don't remember where I got this picture, I wish I did.

Another Collage

I made another collage, this time having to do with motherhood. I took 8 pictures and for some reason my camera turned 6 of them sideways and of course those are the better pictures! Just click on the pictures here and they will get bigger. Click on them again and they will get even closer. I uses part of a verse from Proverbs.

I did it! Coffee stained fabric and all!

I did it! Remember the fabric that I printed pictures on with my printer? And the coffee stained fabric? Well, I made this collage. No the sewn lines are not straight and they aren't suppose to be. The bird's nest is a coin purse. I love the colors of this collage. Look at my other pictures too. Sorry I didn't wait til daylight to take these pictures. But I hope you can still get the idea. It was a lot of fun making this, you should try it! You can make them with almost anything.
 I love that song "His Eye is on the Sparrow". You can listen to it on the internet for free if you want. Read Matthew 10:29-31. We are so important to God.
 See the two little eggs inside the coin purse? And the little feathers? I just love them.

I don't know if you can see it or not. But it says "and I know He watches me." Click on any of the pictures and it will enlarge them. Click on them one more time and it will be even bigger.

Fall is here! And some picture sharing

This is on my coffee table. My tiny Buddy (18 likes to chew on the berries. ~sigh~ I just love fall don't you?
Look at this little rose bush. (Not the weeds!) The rose bush. This thing has bloomed ALL summer. And it doesn't look like it's slowing down, does it?
I love the colors in this picture. The sky was so beautiful, I had to take a couple pictures of it.
I just love this white Rose of Sharon. It's still a baby, but when it grows up it will be 12 ft. tall! Big enough to hide our yard from the view of our neighbors window. :)

Don't you just love the color of this berries? It's called a Beauty Berry. I think that's a great name for it because it really is a beauty, huh?

Here I coffee stained a doily (yes, on purpose) and some fabric that I just bought. Mmmm the bathroom smelled like a coffee shop.

My new job! And Something I'm making.

My first day of orientation for my new job! It was okay. One more day of it and then...I don't know what happens after that! It's a dietary aide job. I hope I like it. I'll tell you more about that later.

I wanted to show you what I'm working on. I figured out how to copy my pictures from paper to fabric! I'm so excited because it turned out the first time! I was sooo scared that I would ruin my printer by getting the fabric jammed in the machine. But I prayed first and then it worked!

Here's a couple pictures for you. Can you guess what I'm going to make? No! Not a mess! It's going to be a collage. Someday.
