    Back from Easter Break with Some New Ducks

    Hello Ladies and Gents Whew what a week and a weekend. We did a little different this year.  The week before Easter we had a combo Easter, Confirmation and Birthday party.  Let me tell you 30 lbs of pulled pork with all the fixings will definitely feed 35 people once and possible 1 to 2 more times.  As I was stilling pulling pork apart at 10PM the night before the party I wish I would have known 15lbs would have done the job.  No biggie I had plenty to send home and still enough to put in the freezer for a quick meeal down the line. I also had to contact our Home Inspector before the madness begin. I had a…

    New Desk Part 1

    I had this big idea for building a craft desk out of some panelled doors from my old house. I shared the idea with my friend Kim, who is much more capable of building things than I am, and she started to blow my mind with constructing legs and adding this and that. Then I called the glass shop to find out how much it would cost for a glass top. The price was around $80 bucks which wasn’t awful but I couldn’t justify $80 for something I was going to glue and paint on. So the idea fell flat until a picture came up on Pinterest for a door/desk…

    Bunny In a Pot Too Cute

    Hey gang here is another great cut from Creative Kuts from the Easter Treats Collection.  Our local Lutheran High School is holding a silent auction.  Our Pastor and his son-in-law got together to make an enormous planter and I put this basket together for our Ladies Aid group.  The basket has potting starter for a herb garden,  herb seeds, a watering can and some silk tulips.  The bunny tag is adorable if I do say so myself. This is the quote from the tag. “Rabbits have a habit of coming for breakfast and staying for lunch. Now there’s one leaf instead of a bunch.” – Gerry Krueger As I said…

    Sweet Dreams Little Sheep by Guest Designer Mary

    I have a guest designer.  I am fortunate to have Mary Perterson working with a set of my SVG files.  Mary is working with the Animal Barnyard collection.  Mary used the sheep from the collection to make her first of hopefully many projects. Mary tells me, “The star and moon paper, and the plaid paper is from Paper Studios.  I used Recollections pink to create the flower border (a file I created) and Recollections yellow cardstock. For the sheep, I did a print and cut for the face, using MTC and my Cougar.  I cut out all the pieces in three different sizes.  I wrapped the single body piece with…
