Well, I'm only two days later to post than I said I would be. Not too bad for the week that we've had here. Last Saturday night our son, Cort (12 years old) broke both of his wrists falling from a Zip Line and let me tell you that is something that you never want to do. Unless of course you want to have someone feed you, bathe you, and help you with your bathroom duties! Poor Cort... he has been such a trooper through it all. He never cried, which I would have been doing and told him to feel free to do. It was so hard to see him in that much pain and it took them 4 hours before they put him out and reset the bones. Clean breaks in all four bones--yes he does nothing small when he does it. The morphine given to him during that time did not help, but after the bones were set he was a new boy. Now we just have to get through the next week and then he will get the splints off and the casts put on which will make him more self sufficient.
I just love him to pieces.....
....hang in there sweetie!
So I bet that you are wondering who is winning a pair of the felt Lovebirds from my last post? Congratulations to BETH who commented October 28, 2010 @4:33pm! Beth, please email me with your shipping address and we will work out the details of how you want your Lovebirds made.
Remember to email me also for the template and instructions for the Lovebirds if you'd like them It's FREE! I've already sent out all of the original requests for the template, so if you didn't get yours please contact me again. I love to share :-)
A little something to share that I made for Glue Arts. You can find the instructions on their blog.
The bag is for an Ipod (which I don't have) so I may just have to find another use for it because I'm pretty sure that Cort or David won't use it for theirs! ;-)
I made the flower with cream colored twill tape and The Twinery string. Once done I sprayed it up with some Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist. Love how the mist can add so much fun to a plain color. All of the string used is from The Twinery. I love their assortment of colors--go check them out when you have time, I know you'll need some for yourself! The bird is a miniature version of the Lovebird. Just shrink your pattern template down a bit in size. I handstitched the pieces together for this one because I thought that it would be easier than sewing it on the machine.
Another quick share, I put together a new kit for The Scrappy Gourmet. This hasn't been put up on the site yet, but should be soon. Maybe over the weekend? Here are a few images of the pages:
Made with a Melissa Frances Chipboard Bingo Card album and a ton of BasicGrey "Curio" collection items. Amazing collection I think.
The alphabet stickers are all by BasicGrey and you will get some of them in the kit. I also used 3 different sets of Hampton Art mini letter stamps and a StazOn black inkpad which you can find at The Scrappy Gourmet online store. All of the buttons, ltrims, and embellishments will be included in the kit other than what I used to personalize my pages where I list my collections, interests, etc.
Thank you so much for stopping by to read my little blog. With this posting I have one more thing checked off of my long to do list. Tomorrow I'm taking a break from papercrafting work as I'm going to a bread making party at my sister's house. Notice the emphasis on party! We bought cute Pier one aprons for everyone and there'll be Chicken Tortilla soup (and fresh warm bread) for lunch. I really need this day! Will take some photos and share a recipe in my next post. I have plans for another giveaway too, so be sure to check back in.
Have a great weekend everyone!
