Here's Your Sign............

lol, Good Afternoon bloggers, have been busy today making some more signs.  Today I did flowers, tulip, daisy and peony.  They turned out so good, I just love the way they look.  I am going to take them over to a place here in my home town this next week and see if they would sell some in their shop.  It's a flower shop, of sorts, they sell lots of old world things, at least that's what I call it.  They sell flowers too but alot of their things are things that you wouldn't see in your basic Walmart, for example.  Was in there the other day and they do sell local artist's things so it's worth a shot.  Anyway, here's a look at the ones I made today.

So, if you're interested in some cute signs for your porch or deck, have I got a deal for you, lol!  These ones are going for $24.99 plus shipping.   I will have them up on my Etsy shop too soon.  


Hope you all have a great rest of Memorial Day. Remember what we are really celebrating here, Our Freedom!!!

Hey there bloggers, it's been a little while since I've blogged so I guess I'd better get at it here.  Have just a few things to share with you today.

We had a nice day on Mother's Day.  Some family came over and we barbequed some burgers on the grill.  Ate some chips and potato salad and played some yard darts.

Here's a few shots of the day's happenings.

I'm kinda moving backwards here but I received the prettiest little rose bush for Easter.  I re-potted it and it's been sitting outside my back door ever since.  I think it likes it there too, look at the pretty roses it has produced.  They are a real pale pale yellow, like creamed colored.

Next up is a card I made for a lady at work.  She had to have some surgery and will be out for about 6 weeks so I made this card for her and sent it to her house.  I used some of Tim Holtz's 'shabby chic' paper pack.  I don't think I have ever seen him use this paper pack himself but my sister used it for a card for me once and it was so pretty.

The chipboard flourish is from my stash.  The sentiment is from Waltzingham Mouse.  I stamped a little swirly on the envelope too.  Hope she liked it.

And last but not least is a wooden sign that I made tonight.  It turned out pretty cute, actually I really like it.  I used a piece of wood I had hanging 'round the house and painted it with one coat of white paint, very lightly.  After it dried I sanded it down a bit.  I distressed the edges and printed the word 'tea' on it and then banged it up with the hammer.  Just love it.  As a matter of fact, I am going to make some more so if you'd like one, let me know.  They sell for $19.95 and you can order one right here. I can print other words on them as well, like your favorite fruit or veggie, a name, etc.  The background can be a different color too but it has to be light or you won't see the words. If you have different preferences about the background color and the printed word, just send me an email and let me know what you'd like.


Thanks for stopping by today and I hope you have a joyous Memorial Day weekend.
Always Remember, All Gave Some, Some Gave All!!!
Hugs, ~Jody

The latest Scrapbook page

I have been working on my daughter's scrapbooks for a few years now, I'm up to age 8.  I'm also on the third scrapbook.  It's tough when you only have one child because you keep EVERYTHING for the first one, lol.  Sometimes I wish I had been better at taking pictures back then.  Most of them are either lop-sided, in the shadows or have a limb missing.  OR I missed the occasion all together.  I recently realized that I don't have any photos of her on her 8th birthday so I'm fudging.  No one will ever know, right?

Anyway, here's a page I did including a few different things.  I had this pocket book for all the grades of school that they go to.  Each grade had a page for their photo and their handwriting.  I also included the receipt for when we had her ears pierced.  I had noted it on one of the pages in the pocket book and still had the receipt for it. 

I really need to get some more of these done.  I've been working on her albums for like 6-7 years now and I'm only up to age 8.  I keep getting distracted by everything else I'd like to create, lol.

Hope you all had a very Happy Mother's Day!
