Happy Rosh Hashanah...A Sweet New Year!!!!

David made his scrumptious homemade chicken matza ball soup and then we had a wonderful dinner of roasted chicken, rice, brussel sprouts, and of course Challah w/ raisins, apples and honey.  I am stuffed to the gills.

I love to make little decorations for all of our special meals and holidays.  Right now I am LOVING banners.  They are so fun to make and look so cute.

Here is the Banner I made for Rosh Hashanah

Please excuse my kitchen with "dinner in progress mess" in the background. LOL

I did nnot know how I was going to make something to respresent honey...I could not fine a die I just used my new Ball Jar stamp that I got at Michael's last week, my Copics, and made a honey jar.  For the bee, I just hot glued some buttons and ribbon together.  I think it turned out much better than a die cut.  I love it when creative desperation works out in my favor.

Hoping you have a happy and sweet year to come...


Spooktacular Halloween Cards

When the weather gets cool...I get crafty.  It's dreary and rainy outside and it got too cold for the water park (eh I think that fun is over for the year) so my creative juices were in over drive keeping my busy.

Here are some cute Halloween cards I made...most of the supplies are just things sitting in my craft room from the last few years.  I would love to go out and purchase all the new yummie seasonal things but then what would I do with all this I already have?  I am not saying I will not go out and eventually buy a new things or five...but this project was about using what I already have...

Something to Cool Us Down

Ok maybe not really but making these cute tags did give me a bit of fall spirit. 

The tags are for am Autumn Tag Swap at

I stamped the image of the tree then fussy cut the image out.

I am not the best at stamping but I like how these turned out.

The leaves were stamped, fussy cut, and then modge podged. 

I attached the leaves, trees, sentimates, etc to the tag with pop dots for added demention.
So I was feeling the Fall spirit all afternoon....until I walked out the door and into the 106 degree Texas Weather.
Summer still sizzles on here in Texas!!!!

Dog Days of Summer Swim on....

We had a great Labor Day Weekend!!!!  We spent most of the weekend just relaxing at home since David had spent last week away on a business trip to California.  However, on Sunday we went to my Mama's house for some chillaxin in the pool.  AJ and Tati (my brother and sister in law) showed up with a suprise....GABE!!!! (my brother Boston Terrier)

He ran into Mimi's living room like a bat outta hell.  And I don't think he settled down the entire time he was there.  No bother, we are used to a hyper dog, living with Dixie Lee for almost 14 years gave us good training.

AJ grilled a Tri Tip Roast with veggies for lunch.  OMG was that GOOD!!!!  After letting lunch settle, we jumped in the pool.

Even Gabe went swimming...

This didn't just took alot of coaxing to get him in the water.  It was cute...he wanted so bad to be in the pool, esp when Tati got in.  He just wanted to be part of the fun.

All that doggie peddling sure took it's toll....
He was worn OUT!!!!
