My Prim Basket

I won this way cool primitive basket last night. It was stock with great smelling goodies. 1 very large and 2 medium hand made jar candles. Two hand made yummy soaps. A large bag of wonderful smelling potpourri and a table cloth all tucked in the huge basket. I smelled so good! I love all my goodies!!


Makayla won her silent auction!

Makayla won her auction she was bidding on last night at the fund raiser! She is now the proud owner of a Purdue Basketball signed by the womens coach Sharon Versyp. We are big Purdue fans here...we have to support our local college team! She is one happy camper and is proud to display this basket ball in her room. All for a great cause!1

My Art from the Heart Basket

Well here is my donation basket, A few pieces I didn't get completed, but I am happy with how it turned out. I was a bit sad that the high bid for this basket was only $25.00. I was hoping for a lot more. This was for a great cause the bid should have been double that! I worked hard and wanted it to bring in a good bid for Russ & Erin. They made announced that they were contacted by the adoption agency that they were chosen for a child that will be born in late June or first part of July. It will be a black child and we are all excited!! We didn't care what color it will be loved to pieces by all of us!!

if is wasn't for bad luck I have no luck at all!

Can anything else go wrong?? maybe I should not say that. My camera is not working right at all.....taking pictures out of focus. This means I am going to have to do something I hate to do......get the manual out! Yes I will get out the manual and see if I can figure it out.
I did get another pair of earrings done but I had to drag out the old camera. These will be going in my art from the heart donation basket.

Having a little trouble with this one!

I have been working on this mixed media piece and not sure where it is going. I want to finish this to put on my wall in my office at work. I think it needs somthing, maybe a design for the face? My daughter thought the legs and arms would make it fun, so we added them. Something just doesn't feel right with this piece. I could use some input.....any comments would be helpful.

Jewelry for my ART FROM THE HEART basket

Sometimes it just takes a deadline to get me creating. I have to get my pieces done for my donation basket for my nieces fund raiser. I have decided to call my basket ART FROM THE HEART! What better creation but ,yes some heart jewlery. I did these polymer clay pieces thst will be transformed into a necklace and earrings. The picture does not give them justice. I made the sides to look like wings. They look a bit like metal in person. I hope to get some more goodies done today. Off for more creating.

Help with expences for adoption!


My niece is having a fund raiser to help with expenses for adoption. Adoption is very expensive yes between $20 and $30,000. The link above is a link to make a donation, any amount will help with expenses. I will be making a basket for the silent auction. I hope to post pictures of the goodies I will be putting in the basket. If anyone should have a child it should be Erin, she is the sweetest and most giving person. It just does not seem fair she is not able to have one. So if you can find it in your heat to afford a donation click on the link and any amount will help her.

Thank you from our hearts!

Dreams do come true!

For a very long time I have dreamed of owning a log cabin. I thought it would be so cool to have one on my property. My niece's grandfather had one on his property. She told me about it many times and she wished I could have it. Her grandfather passed on Friday(my prayers go out to everyone). She called me last night and said there might be a chance I could have the cabin. I got the phone call today at work and she said I could have it! OMG I am so excited!!! The only problem is it is 45 minutes away and we will have to take it a part and bring it home and put it together again. It will be worth it! I decided on the way to work if I did get it I would call it Curly's Cabin, her grampa's nickname was Curly.

Makayla's book cover

Makayla finished her book cover. I love the paper she used inside.....I love the whole thing. I think she is going to give it to me. :-) She had a small issue when she was putting in the metal. Over all she did a  great job and she is inspired to make stamps. This will be a treasure to keep!
