We're off to see the wizard....

Oz badge pin pattern
Don't make me call my flying monkeys!!!

There's no place like home!

I'm Glinda...the good witch. The great Oz has spoken! Nobody gets to see the wizard, not nobody not no how. Follow the yellow brick road.
These are from my new badge pin pattern- #227. Available on etsy and patternmart. These are super easy badges that capture that Magical Oz world! We all wanted to be Dorothy or the Good witch! Badges can be made in both small and large size...with ribbons or without. Ruffles are easy & inexpensive to make using crepe paper or party streamers. Make one for all your friends!

Happy Father's day!

This is my dad, just a week ago at a Grad party. He is 78...I am his one and only child. He and my mother had me when they were in their late thirties. I am very proud of him for alot of reasons. He left Scotland long ago, his family wanted a better life in America. He was an alcoholic, but has been sober almost 40 years. He was a smoker, but also quit that a couple decades ago. He ran his own body shop business and later worked for the state. Even though my mom and dad divorced when I was 3, my mom & dad were very good friends until she passed away. He has been a great father to me, always given me guidance and love! Thanks Dad!

A Sweet Rose and a Slugger

The garden has tons of roses now, in all shades, but this was huge!
This is my slugger, she made the first homerun of the season last night at their first game. Then the rain and thunder came and it was called. She thought she deserved McDonald's fries afterwards. It is so fun to go to the games all summer long!!!
On another note, I am making some wonderful Wizard of Oz items, that I will show you in a day or so. I have many Halloweeen creations on my mind as well. So much to do!!!!! I need a nap!
