Happy Saturday ya'll. Hope it is a good one for you. It is cold and dreery here today. Brrrrrrr. Brandon is Scuba Diving today. I am hanging with the buds. Waffles graced the breakfast table. Lots of building with tinker toys etc took place after. Now the boys are coloring some velvet color posters I bought them...man they love those things. And I love the dollar tree. Every time I go there I stock up.
Speaking of fun finds...I went to our Big Lots the other day. They had some great scrapbooking goodies. I got some flowers and ribbon reallllly cheap. And these adorable accordian albums...the 6x6 were 3.00 and the 4x4 were 2.00. This person is selling them on Ebay for 7.50 plus 5.50 shipping. Talk about profit,lol. I also picked up some itty bitty albums for 1.00. looks kind of like a matchbook album but larger.
I am also working on some altered goodies..but you have to wait to see, hehehehe.
Though I am having trouble with one. I want to sew some lunch bags...and my machine won't do it. I have seen others get it to work...but is no go for me. I have adjusted the tension, made the stitches bigger...just won't work. Any thoughts?
I worked even more at the school this week. copied my big ole hiney off. getting crafts ready for next weeks fun time. we have so many fun things...turkeys, hats, feathers oh my! I am done there for a bit, lol.
