Pat will use my design cased from Kay Kalthoff for her club project. She will use the new Moon Lake Stamp Set from the Stampin' Up! Occasions Catalog 2015. What is so nice about this new stamp set is that it can be used alone or with two of my favorites, Gorgeous Grung or Wetlands. It is nice to mix old and new for a great looking Project!
Laura Ingalls Wilder (1867-1957.) Her work inspired generations and having grown up with her words in print and the portrayals of her and her family on TV, she continues reaching the masses 50+ years after her death.

Pucker Up Pouch - LemonWhether you're poolside, at the beach, or just adhering to your everyday routine, the Pucker Up Pouch by Harveys Seatbelt Bags is a must have.

The top zipper features a lemon leaf charm that detaches and can also be used as a keychain.
Troll-doll loving Foxie makes me laugh everyday. Despite her horrible past (born in a lab, used for hepatitis research, babies taken away from her), Foxie loves to play at Chimpanzee Sanctuary Northwest (ChimpsNW.org). Once she's decided you're a friend (it takes her a little while to warm up to new people), Foxie will be one of the most fun friends you'll ever have. I think she genuinely enjoys making others happy. She is seriously obsessed with troll dolls and has one (or five) with her at all times. I love to watch her play long games of troll-keep-away with Jamie.
Jennifer Aniston, everything she does Is perfect. From her hair to her make up its amazing. She has proven herself as an actress in so many ways. A true beauty on the inside and out

Inspired by thrift store finds, Christy, a self-proclaimed "serial DIYer," crafted this upcycled jewlery storage tower for less than $4. The aqua dishes were the impetus for the DIY project, and with minimal elbow grease, she attached them to a single cleaned-up candlestick. Now her everyday jewelry is beautifully contained and at arm's reach on her dresser./

Thomas Tham. It is amazing to me, that this child can smile with the turmoil around her. She picks up a wired conduit to be used as her new found toy. She smiles. She plays. She is a child. Not knowing the world around her disintegrates. Or maybe she does know. I look at her and I praise God for her smile and thank Him for my blessings. JP 9/16/2012

For her 5-year-old daughter Ellison, Tobi designed a room fit for a princess who longs to be all grown up. A daybed pleases Ellison with its sofa-like adult look while the dramatic canopy that drapes down from the center of the wall above it delivers little-girl fantasy. The pale lavender walls and mint-green ceiling team up on the Clarence Hill toile Tobi used at the windows.

DIY BARN WOOD :: She stained a piece of scrap board with Minwax white tint base wood stain in Slate and realized it was a bit too dark for her liking so she mixed the stain 50/50 with water which made a big difference. She let it dry over night and the next day used some ASCP in Pure White to white wash over the wood (mixing 1-2 Tbsp. with 1 cup water). She brushed it on then wiped it off with a paper towel. :: CLICK or here's another link: www.hawthorneandmain.com/2014/09/diy-barn-wood.html

She is made up of words that not anyone can understand; her mind is a dictionary of sadness and heartache, and her heart is a poetry book for the hopeless, she is the prettiest song...
“My business started with an empty wallet and a simple idea.” And how many others have sprung from the same source? Michelle Galletta of Etsy shop Kiriki Press dreamed up her animal doll embroidery kits when she needed to make an affordable gift for her niece and couldn’t find a suitable pattern anywhere. Her printmaking background made the project a natural fit, and three years later, her last-stitch effort has become a full-time job. Read more about her design process in our studio tour. #etsy
"as i held her hand and saw mortal life drain from her fingers, i confess i was overcome. before i married her, she had been the girl of my dreams, to use the words of a song then popular. she was my dear companion for more than two-thirds of a century, my equal before the lord - really, my superior. and now in my old age, she has again become the girl of my dreams." [gordon b. hinckley about his wife, marjorie]
