I think I am addicted!

I left to go to the grocery store and thought I would go by Michael's Craft Store, just to see what kind of sale they were having. Well, that meant I found something to buy. I can't pass Michael's by without going in to see what they have. I know what they have but there may be something I just can't live without. I can't wait to get the Sunday paper so I can check out for the Michael's coupon. It is bad. And the worst is I love to look at their buttons. I am a buttonholic! I go straight to the button isle first before I go to the rest of the store. I look through the button pkgs just to see if there is a button I might need for my boards. It is bad! My next sin is fabric! Thank goodness Walmart is giving up their fabric because I can give my grocery business to someone else. I always hit the fabric dept and get something. Now I don't have to go there unless I really need something I can't get elsewhere.

The Weekend is here!

Finally the weekend is here and I get a day off from work. We had a pretty good day at the store but it is still slow. Can't wait to get through this year so that the elections will be behind us and we can get on with life. I want to show you something from Kaysbaby.

There are several baby things that you might find of interest.

I got some new fabric for memory boards so I am going to create some new boards this weekend! Come check it out!

Savanna's Last Day!

Savanna works for me and yesterday was her last day. It was sad to see her go but it is a great for her. She is 8 1/2 mons pregnant and wants to spend her last few weeks before the baby is born to get the nursery ready. We had a baby shower for her and Rodney's wife made the cutest cake. I wish I had a pic to show you. Rodney is a salesman at my store. Savanna took it home, she cut around the edges and saved the middle for her husband to see.

Other than that it was an uneventful day.

Look at what Cupkakeartillery has made, it is so cute!

School Days!!!!

My 4 yr old grandson, Cannon, got in trouble at PreK today and his twin brother, Colt, came home and sd "Gegaw, he was a bad boy!" What is wrong with this picture? They have been staying at home, playing, enjoying childhood, then they go to school and wham! Everyday one or the other is in trouble. They just don't get the school thing. I laugh because I think this is such a new thing for them, they just don't have a clue that this is the begining of 14 yrs of school. I wonder if everyday will be like this.

What is your favorite color?

Everytime I find a fabric that I am not so sure about, if I make a board out of it, it grows on me. I make boards all the time out of fabric I really like and they don't seem to sell as well, but let me make one out of a fabric that I am not so sure about and it gets lots of attention. Take the board below, I just wasn't sure about it and I have even gotten comments about it. Orange is not one of my favorite colors but it works with this board. I am not sure if it is because it is Amy Butler fabric or if it is the color. My favorite color is green, I like teals as well. What is yours? What color would you like to see a board made of?

New Item Previews!

Tell me what you think. My dnl said Memory boards made with Amy Butler Fabric will sell!! She said Amy Butler Fabric is Hot! So I need to know what you think! I made this 16" X 20" memory board with Orange Blue Floral Fabric by Amy Butler. Would you buy it? Should I make more?

Time Out!

I finally used a fabric that I liked to make a board but I am not sure it will get the views that I had hoped. It is red fans on white fabric and I have had it a while just didn't know how I wanted to use it. Finally I took the plunge and did it. What do you think?

Goodbye Gustave!

It has been so dreary since you hit Louisana, we have had so much rain and today it is blah! We are glad to see you leave. You weren't a very nice guest. I have been working on a baby quilt for my daughter's friend's new baby girl. I backed it with fleece which I never knew could make such a nice quilt. With the weather like it is I haven't wanted to work on any new projects.
We had lots of evacuees come to Texarkana, I really feel sorry for them. At least this time was better for them than when Katrina hit. Anyway it is good to see Gustave go! Good Luck to the people of Louisana now that he is gone.
