Days after Easter

I hope all had a blessed Easter! We will be cleaning confetti for months to come. It was nice to have family and friends over to celebrate. Neely and Keevan were exhausted by the end of the day. (Early night) Yea! Neely sat on the couch at the end of the day and said "Whew we sure did have fun today. Glad we all could get together!" She then said "I bet Granpa was watching and laughing"!! For being six years old she seems to have a wise out look on things.

Well please send prayers for this weekend, I am taking Neely and a friend to see the new Hannah Montana movie. I tried tricking my husband and it turns out that he is smarter than I gave credit for. Darn it!

Reaching for the stars

Well Neely and I spent Friday working on some stars. If finally snowed here. They were saying we received 4-6 inches of snow. I don't know how they know that because the wind was blowing close to 40mph. So here are stars we did.

Opps just realized didn't get a finished picture of hers.

Recent finished Quilts

Call me Picasso! I have a long history of starting something and not finishing. I get to see what it will look like, then I am happy. About a year ago I started looking at embroidery machines, and I didn't want to get one until some things were done. So here are a couple of finished quilts, and yes, I finally got an embroidery machine.

My helper still in her pj's!
Hooray! I found a site that showed how to clean and decopage the metal filing cabinet. Keevan has his sleeves rolled up and ready to help.

Keevan (looks just like his Daddy)

We will post pictures!

Holy Cow what did I get into??

After some searching and playing around on some blogs I decided to try it out.

Well we have been in our new home for three years, and I am finally getting a studio. Whew, glad we didn't build a home together. Sometimes he just needs to put a bubble in his mouth and remember it is my shop not his. In case your not sure what a bubble in the mouth is, my daughter Pre-K class use to do it when they needed to be quite. See picture below. Funny! It still works to this day. My husband is an awesome person though!

Can anyone tell me if and how to decopauge a metal filing cabinet? It would be greatly appreciated.
