Trade ya

Hey everyone,
I posted on twitter that if you can read my tweets I would love to be in a swap with you. Some of you have answered me and WOOOO HOOOO thank you. But for others you may have not seen it. So this is the swap details….
This is a swap for me… ok that sounds selfish but let me explain.
I always miss out on swaps cause of this or that in real life and my poor little Swap binder has one atc and one postcard in it. :( I am also to sacred to Host a swap for everyone cause things are a little crazy around here
and I don’t know if I could keep track of everyone. I BOW to you gals that host swaps!!!
So this is what I am doing….
I would love an atc or postcard (p/c) from all my friends and in return I will send on back. What ever you send I will send back (atc for an atc ect.)
This is a NO STRESS swap you make whatever you want there is no themes just have FUN with it. I can’t wait to see what you come up with. There is also NO time limit. I understand we all have real life stuff to deal with so it’s ok. I will be making some
p/c and atc so when I get one from you I will mail you one out.
Please DM Twitter or leave a comment blow to let me know if you would like to trade and what would you like to swap an atc or p/c. (I am making a list of names so I know how many I have to do :) )
Also to let you know I WILL NEVER GIVE OUT YOUR ADDY!!! I would never do that to anyone because I wouldn’t want that done to me.

Linus -Big blue


Big blue is all done. I didn't think I would get tit done before my trip but I did it! I am really happy how it came out. I almost didn't want to give it up :) And kitty thinks its his too. 

The only thing that bugs me is after I had sewed it all up and started to put the boarder around it I noticed that one of the blocks is the wrong side up *head slap* well after talking to the girls at my knit/crochet group we all came up with "its the wishing square"  that's my story and I'm sticking to it!! lol

I hope some young one out there loves it as much as I do.

EnjoyCollapse )


Christmas Cookie Rules...

Christmas Cookie Rules...

1. If you eat a Christmas cookie fresh out of the oven, it has no calories because everyone knows that the first cookie is the test and thus calorie free.

2. If you drink a diet soda after eating your second cookie, it also has no calories because the diet soda cancels out the cookie calories.

3. If a friend comes over while you're making your Christmas cookies and needs to sample, you must sample with your friend. Because your friend's first cookie is calories free, (rule #1) yours is also. It would be rude to let your friend sample alone and, being the friend that you are, that makes your cookie calorie free.

4. Any cookie calories consumed while walking around will fall to your feet and eventually fall off as you move. This is due to gravity and the density of the caloric mass.

5. Any calories consumed during the frosting of the Christmas cookies will be used up because it takes many calories to lick excess frosting from a knife without cutting your tongue.

6. Cookies colored red or green have very few calories. Red ones have three and green ones have five - one calorie for each letter. Make more red ones!

7. Cookies eaten while watching "Miracle on 34th Street" have no calories because they are part of the entertainment package and not part of one's personal fuel.

8. As always, cookie pieces contain no calories because the process of breaking
Causes calorie leakage.

9. Any cookies consumed from someone else's plate have no calories since the calories
Rightfully belong to the other person and will cling to their plate. We all know how calories like to CLING!

10. Any cookies consumed while feeling stressed have no calories because cookies used for medicinal purposes NEVER have calories. It's a rule!

So, go out and enjoy those Christmas Cookies - we only get them this time of year!

Happy B-Day Quilt


This is a quilt that I made for my BF mom for her 60th B-day. in the center of the blocks are pieces of fabric with writing on it. I took those small squares with me to there family reunion and had to hide from Ann all day. I got every one that was there to sign a block for her. It was the best feeling in the world when I gave this to her at her b-day party. She was so happy that she cried.

This like this is why I craft. Since then some of the people that signed the quilt have passed on (one a few weeks after I made this) She tells me that when she looks at the quilt that she is always reminded of them.

Music Man

I made this for my friend(that's him in the pic) for his birthday. He is REALLY in to music and he can sing his heart out! He even sang in front of the American Idol judges.
