An Award!


I love my blogger friends! Michelle from "Down Under" in Australia gave me this sweet award.  Thanks Michelle!!!
Along with this award I am listing 7 things about myself and passing this award to 7 other well deserving bloggers.  Here goes:

1.  I drink A LOT of coffee.  6 or 7 cups a day, on into the night
2.  When I was a kid I journeyed through the Childcraft Encyclopedia "Make and Do"... #11(1974 version) at least 20 times.  That book sparked my interest in all things artsy craftsy.  Mom, if you're reading this, I would kill for that book.  (Christmas is a comin...)
3.  I sing in my church choir.  second suprano.  Did I spell that right?  Where's the spell check on this thing?
4.  I LOVE Zumba!!
5.  I work a lot... and I really love it, still!
6.  I'll be married 20 years in January to a handsome young stud.
7.  I have eaten sprouted almonds every single day for the last 2 years.

AND... here are 7great blog people that conspire to inspire me:

Kimberly at Soggy Dog
Amanda at Maygreen Fairies
Shonna at Twisted Figures
Christina at icandy

Have a great day!

Experimenting...


My aunt and dad a "few" years ago




Not sure who these people are but I picked them up from the junk-tique store and gave them a proper home.


These two ornaments (front and backs) are the result of off and on experimenting.  I've played with soldering for a while now but step away for long bouts of time because of frustration.  Back at it again, I decide the work is fair enough to publish.  (Won't publish anything that wouldn't measure up to my "fancy" meter.) 
This crafty art project has given me loads of enjoyment.  I think I might just stick with it this time and see if I can't make some improvements.  I just love photos from long ago.  They are so full of nostalgia and sweet character.  Zoom in and read the words taken from early 20th century text.
I'd love to hear your thoughts on suggestions for improvement or other ideas.  I actually take constructive criticism and use it!  Thanks!!
