Spring Break

This year we didnt do much for Spring Break, my daughter and I have been very busy, we always have something to do on the weekends, and this practice here and this meeting there. We just wanted to chill out. So we went to see a movie, and we took a mini trip to Little Rock, AR to visit my Aunt and Uncle. I was all geared up to take some great pictures at the Old Mill ( a beautiful historic spot in Little Rock), when my camera quit on me. This is a brand new camera.

Anyway, I managed to get a few shots in before it died on me. But as soon as it is working again, I have to take some pics of the awesome treasures I found at a Huge Flea Market there called "Hidden Treasures", perfect name, because I found lots of treasures. I can't wait to share with you guys.

~Craft Room~

Here is a shot into my Craft Closet. My dad and a friend of his built me these shelves in the closet of this room, because this room is so small to house all of my supplies. I think it turned out pretty cool, and I cold always shut the door if it got too messy, but I like them open, I like to look at it all...:)Another shot into the closet....
Yet another shot....

And last

A little clay doll I won from Willowing from (or her etsy store), another artist I love and have several pieces.

Here is another painting I won on ebay. I love this one as well, I wish I had enough wall space to hang all the paintings I own, I love them all so much, but I have to change them out from time to time, because I dont have enough wall space.

Here is a wire topiary that I found at a local flea market, and had to have, I wasnt sure wha to do with it, until i got home and i have this tulle i use on my tables, (that i had nowhere to store) and all my tools. It does'nt really look pretty, but I will figure something out.

AHHH...Squeeeeeeeaaaaaaaaaaaallllllll, here is my latest treasure from Toni (Sugar Cookie Dolls), I love her, I love her. You have to check out her store at . You wont regret it.

Here is alot of jewelry I made for a craft fair (My first one), so I had lots left over. I don't think many people in this town appreciate the crafts, but oh well.

Here is a shot of a painting I won on Ebay a few years ago from Beth Sidebottom @Cupboard Door Primitives, ( I also have several of her pieces). And to the left is a small token I won from
Two Pixie Dolls.

Here is a shot of a wall (excuse the huge shadow) with a few of my collections from Miss Toni @ Sugar Cookie Dolls (love her work), i have several of her pieces. And hanging to the right is some of my ornaments I made. I think they are cute.

I found this altered paper mache mannequin bust at a flea market in Dequeen, AR, a lady has a booth there with all of her creations. It is funny because i just bought one of these paper mache busts, a wooden dowel, and a wooden base, to make something like this. Except the one I am making will not have any fabric, (because I have not learned to sew yet). Anyway, I thought this one was beautiful and it was only $6.99 (way underpriced if you ask me).

Just a shot of one of my shelves, I have some business cards, a bowl of felt balls, and some rings I made for a craft fair (what didnt sell)

In my craft room I have this small black bookshelf with alot of my collections on it ( I really need a bigger room). I have several things going on here. I have some supplies to the left, a piece from Two Pixie Dolls, a couple small clay pieces from Indigo Twin, Vintage Sister, Willowing, Mealy Monster Land and much more. i have some more supplies..My mom works for the State Lottery and these are some ticket holders that were damaged ( and could not be delivered to stores), so she gave them to me for storage, they are the coolest containers, they open from the back and have keyed locks if you wanted to put valuables in there. I love the way they turned out and look pretty holding all the goodies.

Here are more supplies,,,these 3 glass jars in front, I got at Micheals on 50% sale recently. I think i paid $4.99 each for these. The jar on the left is filled with my free gift that Toni from Sugar Cookie Dolls sent me, she is precious. She and I had been discussing the fact that I was having a hard time finding these larger Felt Beads, and she sent me a box full, for being a loyal customer. She is wonderful, and I thank her so much for that.

And just another random shot, a crown jar filled with ribbon scraps...! That is all for now, I will post more pics as I get it more organized. Thanks for looking and I hope you enjoyed. Be sure to check out my post below for my latest creations. Thanks again.

My mom lives in a small town named, Nashville Arkansas! My parents both grew up in this town and now that have retired there on the farm after many years working in towns like Little Rock, AR, West Memphis, AR, Jonesboro,AR, & Conway, AR. So anyway....they love Nashville. I do too, I will probably move there and put down roots eventually. I will post pictures of the farm soon. We are actually headed there this weekend to help my parents with a Barn Raising. Well this town is all about there High School sports. They are all about some football. Their team is the "Nashville Scrappers", and let me tell you, they are serious about their football fever. They will shut down businesses to attend games and have the state of the art arena. This town is painted Orange & Black, everywhere you go. Anyway, my mom calls me up and says she has a charity auction coming up, she was asked to donate items that were "Scrapper" related. Her knowing that I loved making arts & crafts, and my sister makes the most adorable hair bows, she asked us both to make a few things to donate. So here are the pics of what I have so far. I intend on making a necklace and earring set as well. HOpe you enjoy!

This is one of my altered Letters!!! It is simple, but I didnt want to get too busy with it.

This is the front cover of the paper bag album I made, I took a photograph of the sign in front of the high school for the cover.

A pic of the inside, I left it mostly blank, so someone could add school photos, or ribbons or just any type of high school memories!!

Here is the back side of it. I didnt show all the pages inside, but you can kinda get the idea.

And Finally here is my mess I made making these. :)...but that's ok, I had a blast making them.
Thanks for looking and hope you enjoyed!!

Ok, so those of you that know me, know that I am a HUGE Buffy the Vampire Slayer Fan!!!! I watch my DVD sets over and over. I am on Season Five right now and I just felt the urge to blog about it. A have a few friends that have the same Buffyverse addiction that I do, and we often talk about it among each other. We all watch Buffy and Angel along side of each other. Probably my favorite episode in Season 5 is Buffy vs. Dracula....Love it. It is hilarious, I love Xander in this show he is always so innocent, "I'm tired of being everyones butt monkey"....LOL...hilarious. Anyway....Just wanted to blog about it, more to come I'm sure.
