Good Monday!

Lucky says 
Good Monday to you!
He is enjoying himself on our new King bed.
He thinks it's all for him!
The quilt on my bed is from Mary Jane Farms....isn't it cool! 
We visited my sis this weekend....this is the mighty Columbia river... Lewis and Clark traveled this long ago to get to the pacific ocean.  I can't even imagine how difficult that was!

I got this child's play cabinet at goodwill for
$5.99!!
It is adorbs...just needs some painting.
It has a cute decorative floral wreath on it. 

I am painting it with blue chalk paint. 
One coat done...gotta add another layer....distress it and put some wax medium on it.
I will post the after pic soon!
I have three of these cabinets now...all very different.
They make great displays!
I drew a little on Sunday....I love drawing Halloween and get excited about it....even though summer hasn't even started. 
This lil gal is wearing a sweet cat hat!
Doodling was my favorite thing to do in school....haha
I should have seen the sign of my future....but I didn't.
I love to fill up the page!
I had a lovely Mango drink and the weather was a dream! 
Pumpkin guy!
The pumpkin is my favorite thing to draw. 
But I do love a cute witch.

Hope your week goes swell.
Tomorrow ...is my last visit to the dentist....fingers crossed.
They practically have a room ready for me at all times.
At least I am not afraid of them anymore.

I am feeling patriotic this week!!
I can't wait to put up some Americana decor!
This would be fun stitched up into a coaster!!
Do you like the hexie border?

I love hexies...they are such a cute shape!
Here my daughter is modeling a piece....
This is a couple embroidered flowers on a beige musical background.
I collect a TON of Halloween fabric!  Do you?
These are crazy fun! Another ring and necklace....fun pumpkins. 
I have lots I want to make this summer...while sitting on the patio.
I just need to get them out.
She made this banner shape with scissors fabric...fun for all crafty gals.
My daughter will graduate high school in June...she can really add more shapes and designs then.
But ...she did just design this pretty rose!!

Here are just some of the wood pendants and rings...in her shop!
-----------------------------------------------------------------
I went to our Washington State Quilters meeting on Thursday....it is always inspiring!
This is the raffle quilt this year....just beautiful!
The piecing and quilting are lovely! 
I have always had a thing for the Iris! 
Cynthia England was our speaker...she makes art quilts...yes this is fabric! 
She is a very good fiber artist....it is just amazing how perfect everything is....plus she was sooo funny!  There was never a dull moment!

Over the weekend...

Over the weekend....it was my Daughter Selina's high school prom!
She got this lovely dress.....for....drum roll.....
20 bucks!!
She is a thrifty shopper!
Doesn't she look great!
I had to hem it though since she is small.
This is her man...Jaryd.
They have been dating for over a year.
They get along so great...best friends too.
She is a gal that loves gaming....what guy doesn't like that?
He was helping her with her business this weekend too...what a gem he is!
They had a great time.
I got this on spring break...I just love this saying...it was 4 dollars! 
We went to an antique show on Friday...I got this cute tin that used to hold cookies. 
Cute old fashioned design.  I think it should hold sewing supplies now. 
I am always looking for Vintage Halloween....I got this at Coeur D'Alene, ID. 
Halloween noise maker....to scare away nothing but my cats....lol.

I love this little treat holder...I guess this was for Robert.
I think four nuts could fit in it! 
I got this blue pitcher...I know it is new...but I love the look of it.
My lilacs are already in full bloom...I need to cut and out into this pitcher! 
I love going to this primitive shop in a near by town...they have cute inexpensive pictures. 
This is a huge tag my daughter made....cut from her laser....and I got to play with it!
I put random flowers and free motion stitched it up. Plus I added a glittery banner.
There is a pencil next to it...that is how big it is!
Here it is hanging in my office.
Selina is considering alot of new products for her etsy shop...this may be one of them.
You could put any embroidery design in it....making it instantly framed! 
I recently got this lovely piece of art from Michelle Palmer....it is drawn on muslin!
I am still deciding if I will frame it and stitch it up into something. 
I went to the EXPO in my hometown almost everyday back in the early 70's....with my siblings to look after me.
I got this little flag for 25 cents...it is a great memory for me.
This cute elephant was made by a crafter...glittered...tutu of  party streamer and a sweet paper hat...this is in my office. 
Snoopy and Woodstock look after the office when I am not around!
Love their eyes!

Gotta get going...
Happy Monday!

Be Nice...freebie & more

Be nice...or leave.....love this.
Have you noticed that people are ruder than they used to be.
Also people thinking they are being "Honest"...but are just plain mean?
I really believe....if you don't have something nice to say...then don't say it at all.
This would be a fun little sign in your office space!
*Please note that all freebies are for you to use to make a couple finished goods (no mass producing) and a couple gifts...they are still legally my designs.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------

I am so happy for the weekend...I really need some time where I can just chill.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I have a new banner set in my etsy shop: Sweet girls banner. 

They come on this collage sheet....12 banner flags....just download and print...cut out and glue onto jute! 
I painted the girls and flowers...converted them to the flag shapes and also made extra flowers and motifs as an illustration ...so that all the colors go together perfectly.
The banner can be any length. Each sheet has 12 flags....you could print as many as you need.
I have mine hanging in my office above my computer.
