My brother, his fiance and their son are coming up for Thanksgiving! It will be the first time since our move to WV that any of my family has visited, so I am super excited! I havent seen them in a few years too, soo you can imagine! I just know we are going to have fun, just hanging out, enjoying each other's company, taking lots of pictures and sightseeing!
I decided I wanted to go ahead and give them their gifts for Christmas while I had the chance in person, that way I dont really have to worry about shipping and if the items would make it safely and things like that. So I got out all of my drawing supplies and for the first time in months I drew!
My brother loves Tigers, so I drew him a Bengal tiger.... and his fiance loves wrestling and her favorite wrestler is Jeff Hardy, so I drew her a picture of Jeff Hardy.... I like how they turned out, of course photos never do artwork of any kind any justice.... so they look more vibrant in person :) I really hope they love their pictures =]
I rejoined Scrapbooking & Crafting Friends, and I plan on working on some paper arts in the near future... before I really get tired of knitting and crocheting and never want to pick it up again lol. I love doing it, but when you have done it every single day for the 6 or more months... sometimes you just get tired. ya know? Hopefully I will be blogging here more frequently. I am going to update everything today and will be posting my new creations, including knitting and crochet items when they are created. I'm also going to try to put in a little of my everyday life here as well, like I used to.... Im sorry I abandoned my friends like I did... life just got in the way and I miss you guys so very much!
Wishing everyone a very blessed Thanksgiving!

I found a pattern online for the base of my pattern, but it was for an infant. It would not work at all for the adult men's mask I aimed to create. Infact when I created the mask using the pattern alot of it was wrong and it just didnt look like it should. Soooo... after writing the pattern out myself once and crocheting the mask and miserably failing because it was super gigantic and could probably fit an elephants head... lol... I had to take it all apart and rewrite the pattern again, recalculating everything.
Finally on the second try it turned out like you see. It was actually a challenge but a fun one. I am really pleased with the finished product. I'm going to be taking custom orders for these masks in any colors... soooo if you are interested please comment here or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or the shop at email@example.com ....
You can visit the shop any time to check out all the goodies we have to offer. Tomorrow morning we will be adding Christmas Stocking caps, and doggie sweaters! We will be taking custom orders for those also! Its been a busy but super fun month for us! Hope everyone has a nice night... its 2 am and Im beat!

Tim know's what he wants. He wants to make something of himself. He wants to make a difference in some sort of way. He's a very patriotic person and he wants to show that. I am his wife. I love him more than anyone could know, and part of my job as a wife is to support him and his decisions. Does it scare me, yes it does. But I trust him, and I know he can do this. I'm a strong person, I've been through ALOT in my life. I will miss him more than I can even explain when he's away... but my pride for him and my love for him will keep me going. Choosing a job like this is a life changing decision and I am VERY proud of my husband for even deciding to take a step like this in his life. It takes a real man to want to do a job like this. I may sound insane but this is what makes me happy about his decision.
He had a little snaffoo when he went for his physical and things. They had a record of Tim having bronchitis in his childhood, so they require him to get them medical records showing that it didnt give any damage to him, and he didnt acquire asthma or anything... those records are 10 years old and in North Carolina, sooo... he has to get those records and turn them in then finish all of his stuff. Hopefully on October 30th he will be heading to Arkansas for 5 weeks. Im happy to have him for the rest of this month! Things always happen for a reason.
Welll..... Im not getting any baby blankets knitted this way so I should close for now. I will try and update more often, at least weekly if I can.
Hope all are doing well!

1. I love to play video games from time to time. I wish we had an old nintendo or something so I could play mario brothers, tetris, and frogger. I love those games.
2. I am a movie junkie! I will watch any movie at least 1 time, because its new and something different. I am also known to watch movies I own over and over again. Whats the point of buying them if you dont watch them more than once?
3. I never go anywhere without makeup on. It would have to be serious for me not to. I've always been that way since I was 15 and started wearing makeup, I dunno why.
4. I am a country girl through and through. I love country cooking, country food, country accents, country living etc.... You can take the girl out of the country but you cant take the country outta the girl. ;)
5. I can pick things up with my feet & toes. I know its kinda monkey-ish right? lol.
6. I hate bridges, planes, and boats. I will not get in a plane or a boat, and you hardly ever see me on a bridge and liking it. lol.
Bored yet? LOL
And I am tagging.... Ginger, Jeanette, Deana, Sara, Margie, ShellyRae Wood

The base of the card was printed sheet music. I then took my handy colored pencils and colored it with pink, blue, green, and yellow blending the colors as I went. The image is from a swap I received from a friend so Im not sure where it is from. =( I used some of the white pages in different areas of the background from the phone book. Musick was the name I found. I didnt see anyone with Music as a name. sighs. but it works all the same =) The piano in the top corner is from the yellow pages. I just colored it a brighter yellow to match with the background. The Blue is actually grungeboard that I wrote Listen on with a Sharpee. I edged everything with a black sharpee. =)
Head over to Weekend Crafters and join in the challenge fun! Thanks for looking! Have a happy weekend all!

Since I wasnt able to participate in the Mygrafico challenge there for last week, I thought I would put the 2 challenges together. So I used 2 digital stamps from the Playful Pals set from MyGrafico, and lots of pink & green for this card. I colored the cat with colored pencil. There's a lot of sewing on this card as well. The center of the flower, the leaf, and the edges around the cat have glitter on them. It was fun doing this challenge. Pink & Green were the colors I used for my wedding Aug. 2nd 2003. =) It was fun working with them. I cant wait to see what everyone else is going to create!
The Challenge is open to anyone & can be anything your heart desires!
In other news, My Printer died. =*( My hubby wasnt able to bring it back to life =( Bless his heart, he tried.... but I guess my poor little printer went to printer heaven. We went and got me a new printer though and its working well. Its about time. I have so much stuff that I need to print that has piled up on my computer due to not having a working printer. I'm so glad I can finally get it all caught up now =) Even if it did cost me $50! lol.
I think thats pretty much it for now. I hope everyone has a great weekend!

This is my card that I put together =D I haven't had the chance to use this stamp for anything. Its been sitting in the drawer for almost 6 years untouched! EEP!
So happy that I got to make something with her. Isn't she beautiful???
I used a really pretty vellum glitter decorative paper for the background as well as a nice embossed type of lavender paper. Sorry folks not sure who they are by. The beautiful Lavender Fairy is by Stamps Happen. I colored her using colored pencils. I used purple and clear self stick gems, my sewing machine, and lavendar ribbon. =D
Head over to PAMC and check out what the rest of the design team made. Everyone has until Wednesday at noon to participate, and everyone is welcome to jump in. You dont have to be a member of the group or anything. MyGrafico is sponsoring the prize there for the month so participate and you might win a super cute digital stamp set!
I used decorative papers, letter stamps by studio G, ribbon, self stick gems, cardstock, decorative scissors, hole punch, crystal glitter glue, foam decorative stamp, & orange, yellow, black inks.
The bases of each section is wood planks that I sanded down and rounded the edges using my dremel tool. I used matching sheets of decorative papers and pink, and blue cardstocks. I also used green and pink Flowers by Prima, and 2 large pearl like buttons. (I cut the backs off the buttons and shaved it smooth with the dremel) It helped to be able to attach them to the flowers flatly.
I also used crystal glitter glue for the top and bottom of each panel (sorry the pic doesnt show this) The cord to hang it is made of 3 different colored floss's that I braided together to match.
It was something different and fun for me to try. I hope you enjoy. Thanks for taking a looksy =)
Stay tuned more to come today.

Remember about a week ago I mentioned that I was knitting! Do your remember the pics of the beginning of my first knitted item and how I mentioned that I wanted it to be a table runner. Welll.... that didnt happen lol. Actually I tried really hard to make it into a table runner but I couldn't get it long enough to fit the kitchen table because its so long. I just simply did not have enough yarn of that color to do it. So I decided to turn what once was meant to be a table runner into a shaw. Funny how things happen right? So I used some burgundy colored yarn and made a fringe along the bottom, added a large brown button and wha-lah. I have my first hand knitted project. Im thinking of putting it in my etsy shop. I just wish I had someone to model it for me lol. I've started another knitting project now. I'm about 1/2 finished with the first of 2 window valances for my studio windows. (I hope, a-hem) LOL.
Items used: Purple Acrylic paint, Number stamps (unsure where they are from), Number diecut stickers by Colorbok, Background decorative paper by Colorbox, Pansy vellum stickers by stickopatamus, vellum quote from colorbok, cardstock in lavendar and sage, & glitter glue by crayola.
