First up a craft show.
Me & Maggie went to the Strawberry Festival here in Melbourne FL. this weekend. We got there at about 9:30 and the parking lot was filling up fast. Parked at the end of a row in the back and got parked in anyway by someone that parked on the end were there was not parking Grrrrrr…I parked that way so I could get out…oh well….
027This pic was taken about 1/2 hr after show opened…this is one of 3 walk ways…all were jammed packed. And it was like that all day ….both days…not sure they were buying much.
Butterfly feeders….
So…seen these things…not sure about them…I think they should be for water not a sugar feed….they would be loaded with ants! They are a sea spounge , on a pottery plate  on a pole. I did see someone walking out with one…he had a bunch of other bird feeders on these plates and poles.


So whats up with all the owls?? I see them everywhere. Good for the owl collectors..I took some pics of these sweet little owls..well not so little….

2013-03-14_15-35-27_885And what do we have here? A shabby chic owl! Seeing all the owls make me want to make a few.!! Maybe an owl banner to hang in my rig for a little whimsy. I have not made a thing or worked at all since the cigar boxes…I sit and look at the net or mags…thinking I want to make this or that and never get it done….wish I knew what happened to my muse…where oh where are youuuuu?? I have been looking at some sewing art…not sure what you call it….but thinking that might be easier to carry around than all this altered art stuff…Well maybe next post I will have something good to show you…that’s it for now thanks for looking and come back soon

COOL SEWING THINGS Did not know what to post today. No new pic’s to show you. So went thru a few olddies and found these. To cold yet to go out and work on anything. Only 34 this morning!

005Gathered up these the other day. I want to use them in some art project. Just now sure what.

004I found these pic frames at a yard sale couple years ago. They just lived out in my room for a year or so…than last year…when in a funk…I was getting rid of all art/craft stuff. So I gave them away. Now funk gone and I want to get back to work and they are gone …boo hoo…oh well….I even went so far at one point in time to paint them black.

FLRSThis was taken a couple years ago at my house in PA. Some Knock Out Roses mixed in with some pink climbers. They are on the side of my front porch. Little Maggie is in there somewhere….


008Some very pretty hand made flowers. I made some of them and got a few in swaps. Loved doing swaps…hope to get back to them sometime soon. Pretty colors too.


100_1256And how about this pretty cool girl? My Maggie girl…you have to click on the pic to see how pretty she is!!!


Not much that’s for sure. Did a few things yesterday you can check my other blog to see what.
I am trying to spice up the look of my blogs with out changing the format. I really don’t want one of the new ones with all the bells and whistles.Jus slows things down I think. Both my kids have BD’s this month I am making my DD’s card and  need to send it out tomorrow…not sure DS would want a handmade sissy card lol. Got a ton of ideas for some new stuff to make and sell…wish I could find some of the smaller printer drawers. I know that when I get to PA this summer I am going to hit the yard sales and flea markets hard looking for stuff for all my new ideas. So I don’t have much to show you want I am working on but will soon.
All for now thanks for looking and come back soon

004Working on this fairy project now…old cigar box…I have a few of these hanging around…I sprayed it black…you can paint it any color you want….right click on the pic’s to get a better look.
024I used an old children's fairy book pages for the back ground and the edges….I can not remember what it on this pic to see those sweet little bunnie fairys...
025On the edges I cut the paper and put some puffy paint between. Either I am out of practice or I am getting old…was a little shaky trying to get a straight line. Used decopodge to do all the papers.
005Here is some of the fairy related items I have gathered up to do this project. I need more!! I am going to make some faires using pic of vintage people women and kids mostly and put some butterfly wings on them… from an old butterfly book…to make more fairies. After looking around I got so many ideas to make these boxes using trays, printer trays, cigar boxes…looking for other ideas on things I could use instead of the trays and boxes…they are getting hard to find.
Here is amost finished sewing box. There is a lot more you could put in here…when selling these I have to come up with some way to tell people what they can do with them….Haven’t worked on much this week…had one of the RVWomen gals come to visit. She stayed at Wickham Park campground and I went over during the day and we had fun doing a few things and doing a lot of yaking. Her dog is a small dog with the name “Maggie” lol…that was fun…Been think about my trip north this year…besides working on the house and doc appointments…there are a few other things I want to do…hope I can get it all done…
all for now thanks for looking and come back soon
