                                                    The dog that we are pet sitting is making a Mothers Day card for his                                                                                                       MOM

                                                                 He wasn't to keen on putting his paw on the ink pad
                                                                            But he liked giving her the card

Playing on black card stock

                                              Inspired by friend to watch Gina K video
                                                 On Prisma Pencils on black card stock
                                                                    I did these


Not at all happuy with them even after several attempts 
While the black card stock is out I decided to get out my Perfect Pearls 
Had to watch video it has been that long 
Here is the result

                                                  Trying my hand at sewing  masks
                                                  They are not perfect  sewing is not my best thing
                                                   They are better than nothing

                                                  I made 8  and have two left
                                                  So i am thinking they are not right
                                                    People who have one are saying they are comfortable 
                                                   Maybe they are being kind

                                                         They are lined with interfacing

                                                      I was tempted to try each one on
                                                     but decided that would not be a good idea
                                                     A friend who needed one tried hers for me
                                                           and it seems to work just fine

Table Napkins

                                                          Just playing with napkins and mod Podge
                                                              I will use the backgrounds as needed in future


                                                        I made several of each
                                                        Here are some close ups

                                                         I was gifted this rubber mould last week
                                                         So I made cotton pulp and began this process


Sprayed the mould with release and filled with pulp
Took two days to dry in the Florida sun 

I just jiggled the mould and everything released  easily 

I trimmed edges 
Easily colored with markers or water colors 
Not sure how or if I will use them 
                            but I have refilled the mould for more

Spare Time

                                             While confined in house
                                           I am practicing QUILLING
                                         I started out pretty simple


This is pretty basic so I up my game a bit 
Watched videos and did this 

This leaf was a bit of a challenge 

The whole reason for my quilling right now is I was gifted this board

It took me two days watching re watching videos 
Then it took   me a whole day to make the one flower 
I know the next one if there is a next one will be faster 

It is not hard just piddly and time consuming

                                                                   The die is called Shaggy Bow

Water techniques

                                          Yesterday at our get together the theme was water 
                                  This  card is made with a plastic bag filled with hair gel
                                                          It is very effective
                                     The gel moves around creating bubbles like water

            This water effect is done by  running an acetate sheet through a bubble embossing folder
                                                                 Placed behind a die cut
                                                          Both have blue card stock behind

                                                               Sewing is not my favorite thing to do 
                                                                but I could not replace the cushions the
                                                                        size is just not available 
                                                                               So here goes 



                                    There are four chairs  mix and match 


Far from perfect but much better than the old ones

Monday, February 24, 2020


                                            The handle of my Martha Stuart cutter snapped right off
                                                 It really looks like it was on there with a spot of glue
                                                              It is a few maybe 4 years old
