Memorial Day 2014

This month has flown by!  It's hard to believe that Memorial Day is here!  Here are a few pictures I thought I would share of this past month's activities.  These pictures are of our trip to Brimfield, Mass. and their giant flea market!   My sister's and Russ and I go at least once a year.  You never know what you will see when you round a corner!  I love the chef and I actually have a couple of small ones in my kitchen.  This one would have been a great addition but I really don't have any room for him.

I love the cement figures from this seller.  They are really too heavy to carry around but would look great in a garden!

I love the color of Jadeite!  I have a cake plate in Jadeite and love it.  I don't dare buy anything else or may find myself addicted!  They really are very pretty!

 I love this picture of my mother on Mother's Day!  She is opening the card I gave her!  I love to watch when someone opens a card that has been hand made especially for them!  My mother always seem to love them!

Tom and I went to North Haven this weekend to visit Callie and Noah and Ezra!  It turned out to be a beautiful day!  Sorry this post has been so long but I hadn't posted anything in a while.  I thought I would catch up with you!

Happy Mother's Day!

Here is Part 2 to my Pop up card Tutorial.  I wanted to show you the cards that I had made and a couple of ideas for decoration.  I am hoping that others will come up with more ideas on how to decorate. 

Here are a couple of pictures of the cards from my video!  Again, thank you for all your kind messages and well wishes!  They are really appreciated!

Pop Up Card in a Box

I have been dealing with health issues-which include severe migraines- and have been unable to work in my craft room.  I taped this tutorial before I became ill and I decided to share it even though I haven't completed the 2nd tutorial showing how to decorate the card.  I am also hopeful that you may have ideas on how to decorate it too!  So I am sorry for my absence but I believe I am on the road to recovery!   Let me know if you should have any questions!
