The REVEAL….what’s next in our future!

So many have jumped in with our last post and you helped us focus.  You sent cheering words of wisdom, acknowledged your excitement,  reached out and extended your friendship and support.  Gheez….I love each and every one of you….!  No, we didn’t buy a floating house but bet we might see something similar where we are going! You know,…

First trip to an Estuary…(Alabama)

Days continue on the Gulf coast in Alabama…and off we went for another day of sightseeing. “Let’s take the back county roads west of Hwy 59 today!”  Riding along, taking in all the amazing horse farms, I spotted a sign, Weeks Bay Estuary. Now I admit, I had no clue what an estuary was.  Upon entering the visitor’s…

ATSY TUESDAY…not so much this week ?!!!

Well it is suppose to be Atsy Tuesday but I’m cheating this week.  Between another garage sale, family visiting, family in the hospital, and school starting back at work it’s a jammed packed SCREAM for the woods!  Please, please someone come take me away! Casita update…we did have our first sleepover night in the driveway. …

ATSY TUESDAY – Marshmallows…

I must be hungry or just wanting to play like a kid.  But this post from the Idea Room struck a cord.  I love everything marshmallow..I even made homemade ones.  But in seeing this post, building not only would jog the brain but what fun eating them as I build (can’t do that with a…

ATSY TUESDAY – a sweet monster patch

Since I’m low on travel posts until we take off, I’m going to allow Tuesdays to be a love for a particular artsy fun  idea.  Maybe even a one day fun project I’ll create while I’m all cozy in my Casita. This is a sweet patch for a pair of my favorite blue jeans.  Who…

And the beat goes on…one step at a time!

It sure seems like a whirlwind lately and like I never have enough time to get started on the plan we have laid out.  But that’s me, always wanting to be one step ahead of the game.  And the fact, that I still work full-time is sure cutting into my time at home to get this…

More Felting Fun…

Still craz’ed with making new felted creations for family and friends…something so relaxing about stitching and watching them almost come alive.  I purchased more fabulous felt from an etsy seller.  Just wish more hours in the day to play around with all of them :O) The used Altoid tins on Pinterest showed a cute family…

Felting hearts…the fun begins!

Some fun felt to get me started with my pocket hearts.  Love the alphabet I received from Grabbags.  Time to grab my thread, filling, needles, scissors and start creating!    So a little of my handiwork for my first heart…front and back!  It’s so sweet!

EMBROIDERY makes me smile!

Remembering the days gone past when I would sit and learn the art of hand embroidery with my mother.  Started with just a pillow case and made olive and gold cross stitch flowers to match her bedspread.  Then I was given my first pattern kit consisting of a complete embroidered pattern of a cluster of…

FELT and pocket memories!

I’ve been obsessed with felt and especially sewing with a needle and thread forever.  Then I found Pinterest and filled a board with felt inspiration!   The days of crossstitch, embroidery, ribbon embroidery and combined with needle felting I want to just grab my supplies and sit all day and sew up creations.  I need…
