A Little Spare Time is What I Like

Hey there blogger friends!! Yep, another post, can you believe it?? Actually, this is my 100th post, and I was going to plan something big and exciting, but have not done so yet. I did want to write and tell you that I had a little extra FREE time today where I had nothing planned, so this is what I did............

Took a little fabric that looked like this........used a lil iron on heat bond, and......

GOT THIS!!! A table runner!!

I've been looking around for a table runner, and found none that I liked. Everything was a little too foofoo for me, or were covered with turkeys, and I like things simple. So, after working all night on call, I slept a little this morning, woke up and created this little piece. Took all of 30 minutes. I may even have to make one for the Christmas Holiday!!!
My sons party is coming together. I have found some recipes that I am going to try of things that I was going to purchase. (Thanks for the advice Farmchick) So, we'll see how that all goes.
Hope you all have a great rest of the week.
Enjoying MY day,

A Quick Update

Just a quick post to let you all know that I am still alive!!! It has been crazy here, and it's not looking less crazy for quite some time. My son Alex is being confirmed next weekend, so we are preparing for an Open House. Which consists of..........REALLY cleaning the house, the garage, fall cleaning stuff outside, (which needed to be done anyway) planning the food, baking, extra table, chairs, etc...........I have not even thought about what I am going to be wearing!! That will be this week with all my spare time. ughh.
The good news is that when all the craziness is done, which won't be for another 4 weeks.........(we have something every weekend til Nov. 21st) I will get to bring out the Christmas decor!!! Woohooo!!!! I cannot wait. I love to decorate for the Holidays, it's my favorite time of year.
The following are pics that I had to scan for a video that the class is making for Alex's Confirmation. Alex was such a cute little thing...........still is, however, he's 16 now!!

1st Christmas Program

1st day of Sunday School

Another 1st day of Sunday School
3rd Grade Bible Day
Hope you all have a great week. My next post will be my 100th, so will have to make it a good one!! Time for Desperate Housewives........

I'm a Blog Slacker.........

I had many plans to blog this weekend, but the time went so fast. We were so busy the last couple days. Went shopping Saturday out of town, Sunday, I woke up and started cleaning out the garage in preparation for my sons Confirmation party. Was out there most the day, and have a huge pile of garbage!! I guess I am a last minute blogger before I head off to work.

Enjoy the following pics!!!!

I received my sign from Kindra the other day. I love it, and I know our Christmas will be much brighter this year because of it!! Head on over to her site and check out her creations.

Thought I needed a Fall wreath this year, so I made one. However, when I was cleaning the garage yesterday, I found one that I had made last year!! LOL Can you say..."I'm losing it??"

This is by far my favorite pumpkin this year. It grew on its side. Closer to Halloween, I will carve something creative in it.

Ahhh, homemade spaghetti sauce is what kept me busy last weekend. I am hoping to make more, as I have quite a few tomatoes left. (they are still green) The sauce it great, my son loves it.

This weekend, I started messing around with my photo options, editing, etc. This is a pic of my friends son. Thought it turned out pretty cool. I made her a copy and framed it.

That's all for today. I need to get going and get ready for work. Hope you all have a great Monday!!

Make it a Great Week,

It's Almost Friday!! Woohoo!!

Man, I have been waiting for Friday all darn week!! I think only working 2 days last week, made this week kick my butt!! I have been sooooo extremely tired all week. The weather here has been awesome, so I don't know what's up with me. (maybe it was too much house cleaning last week?)

I will try and update tomorrow sometime, or maybe even tonight if I can keep my eyes open.

Have a great Friday!!!
