Wow...it's been a great week to get in my scraproom. Maybe it's because I cleaned it! I changed the room around and that forced me to put things away that have piled up. I still have some embellies that need to find their home.
Here are two cards I made for OperationWriteHome.org
I started some of these at my monthly crop but had to finish the lettering at home - why do I always forget my letters? Oh yeah, trying to limit how trips from the car I have to make carrying everything in!
Sorry these are sideways. I'm too tired to change them. I'll make tomorrow's group is better.
Two people I know ... one a friend from long ago and one my sister-in-law... are going through some tough times. Cancer. I hate that word. It took my sister and it took my Mom. My prayers are with Nancy and Dianna that God will bring His healing to your bodies and that your faith will remain strong.
I made several scarves for Christmas - I found the pattern on Pinterest. I made 12 of them for gifts and now I've made 2 more for my sister-in-law and myself. My first one is made with yarn that is too flimsy and doesn't hold up as nice as I wanted and my sister-in-law wanted a cream one to wear with her brown coat (I made her a black/grey one for Christmas).
I wanted to share these because I really do love them. They are so very warm.
Have a great weekend...I'll be scrapping so I hope to have pages to show you next week.
We are having remodeling done in the house so I'm in what-can-I-change mode. We bought our pie safe about 13 years ago and the punched tin plates are showing their age - one is bent (from an angry teenager kicking it) and all were rusting.
We bought new metal inserts from Home Depot and I decided to see how hard it would be to replace the panels. I had to measure and cut them (after popping out the old panels). It was easier than I thought.
My husband said he likes it better than the original panels! Now I just have to clean out the pie safe because you can see them sort of.
I hope to have the after-remodeling pictures soon. We are getting closer. Thanks for stopping by and have a great day. Susan
I went to the Columbus Museum of Art with some my son and his girlfriend and some friends. They had a display of Lego creations. WOW! We saw the Columbus downtown skyline and the OSU football stadium (1,000,000 Legos).
It was a spur of the moment trip but fun. I'll need to go back and look at the "real" art there. Sundays admission is free.
Thanks to my friend Pati for inviting me over to scrap. I got some cards done. Sorry the pics are a little fuzzy...I think I was standing too far away and zoomed too much and the lighting wasn't so good. I was in a hurry to visit my mother-in-law in the hospital.
The flowers are from a border punch...I love they way they look and will have to play with borders with this punch.
Psalm 8: 1 O Lord, our Lord, your excellent name fills the earth! Your glory is higher than the heavens. 2 You have taught children and infants to tell of your strength, silencing your enemies and all who oppose you. 3 When I look at the night sky and see the work of your fingers— the moon and the stars you set in place— 4 what are mere mortals that you should think about them, human beings that you should care for them? 5 Yet you made them only a little lower than God and crowned them with glory and honor. 6 You gave them charge of everything you made, putting all things under their authority— 7 the flocks and the herds and all the wild animals, 8 the birds in the sky, the fish in the sea, and everything that swims the ocean currents. 9 O Lord, our Lord, your excellent name fills the earth!
