Wish you were here crafting

Hello Fellow Bloggers,
Hope everyone is doing well. As for me I have a cold
and I know that if I slow down any it will grab a hold
and send me for a loop.

Pumpkins repurposed

Hello Everyone, I know that it has been some time since
I posted on my blog. Life really got in the way this time.
My uncle Robert was pretty bad off for about three weeks
and I tried to be there as often as I could to help. My uncle
passed away and at about the very same time I had to put
my dad in the hospital. It got very crazy for my family. I
tried to craft inbetween everything just to try and stop from
going insane. My dad was operated on and is doing well
now. He got out of the hospital just in time for his brothers
 Just when I thought that things could not get any
worse someone decided to help themselves to some of our
things. I know that it's just material things but some of them
had so much meaning. The tools that my son had inherited
from his grandfather. The tools that my son and father-in-law
had used together building a shop and working on antique
cars and the Harley's. The chainsaw that he had left my
husband which was used every year for many years to get
our firewood for the winter. What makes it worse for me
is that in all the years that I lived in a big city nothing was
ever stolen from us, but living here in my hometown that
is the second time in my life. I was about 15 years old when
someone broke into our home.Here I am back and it has
happened again. All I can say is that the person who did it
better hope we never find out it was them.

Well as you can see from my photos of my pumpkins that
were made out of plastic containers, orange paint, vinyl
and the October 31st cartridge. The faces really tell my
story of how I'm feeling. Until my next post Hope you all
having a better time than I am.

Froggy Treat Bag

Good afternoon everyone!!!!
I'm so sorry that I have been
MIA again and now posting late in the day. I just start
to get around to posting every day when life jumps out
and grabs me by the hand. I have been trying to spend
some time visiting my uncle since it's looking like he
is getting close to leaving us here on earth.I try and stop
by every chance I get. On top of that our water heater
went out and  that took up some time cleaning up
the mess from that. So in my header picture is a treat
bag that I made for my uncles grandson who turned 
seven today. I thought that he needed a little bit more
cheering up because he is dealing with knowing that his
grandpa won't be around much longer. 

 I made the frogs using my cricut and the Mini Monsters
cartridge. I the used cardstock to stamp celebrate on and
used it to staple the goody bag closed.I made it so the
kids could take the frog off and be able to stick it on any
other surface. I hope they enjoyed them. Until my next
post Have A Splendid Evening!!!!!!!!!

Lets talk Tuesdays 10/2

Good Morning Everyone. Hope your tuesday is turning
out to be a good day. For me it will be a busy day. I have
bills to get paid and groceries to buy etc. etc. In my
header picture is another great buy that I found at the
Tuesday Morning Store. This stamp set is called  Rock
Star and cost $2.99. In the picture below is the stamp
set named Twist N' Shout

This one also cost $2.99. The next picture is the stamp
set called Vintage Keys and that one cost $1.99.

Sorry about the picture. I tried several times to get a
good picture and it was just not happening. Isn't it
amazing that there are places where you can find
crafting supplies for a fraction of the cost of what
they would be from one of those craft supplies stores
Hope you can get out there a find a bargin. Until my
next post. Have A Splendid Day!!!!!!!!
