Crafting fun OR...

Third time’s charm! I have had trouble with my computer this weekend and this is the third time I’ve written this post! I lost the other two...BOOHOO! My computer seemed to over heat and shut down. We did not have the ‘save draft’ set on Windows Live Writer....but we do now!


I love to make things when we are in Florida!


My hubby and I share a study and I have a nice big desk and shelves for all of my supplies.


One thing I love is this architectural table. It’s great for laying out designs and cutting out. You can angle the table and adjust the height.


I’ve had a little help crafting from the mice

DSCN2986 but these girls are laying down on the job!


I made these little hearts to add to my gifts this year and to put around my house.


They are fun to make and last night I made one and sewed beads on every flower. Good therapy for after the holidays! Here’s a few more cuties on my shelves in the study!


And speaking of cuties, my sweet hubby downloaded some Cool Emotions to Windows Live Writer and I can’t wait to use them!   I hope I don’t go overboard! I also want to give him LOTS of credit for standing in a LONG line at Bath and Body Works today with a bag full of body wash and soap while I looked around some more! He was surrounded by women but didn’t complain or anything!

Have a wonderful evening! ♥♥♥

I am glad that your found the Vintage Christmas Mondays blog links while they were still up. I will have them on my blog through December 31. Hope you get a chance to look through them. I posted at least one recap of each week's posts for 5 weeks on my blog so you can see alot of the posts that way. I will be doing it again next year.

The hearts are so cute! There's lots about WLW I haven't figured out yet.


Your heart are sweet and I bet you could make some for Valentines day too!
I don't know a thing about the "live writer" thing!!!
Love your large craft table and a window is always nice. Maybe this year my craft room will happen??!!

I cannot believe that you make such pretty hearts. I have one sitting among my dolls.

The "Cool Emotions" are such fun. Of course, you do not need anything special to express yourself.

I want/need your crafting area.

What a happy place to create. I LOOOVE the idea of the A. table that angles!!!
I got such a kick out of the "golf cart parade". What fun!!! But the best part was your "boys" who were watching...precious! : )
Hope your Christmas was Merry.
P.S. I made one of those red jingle bell reindeer back in the day, too. How fun to see one in someone else's house. : )

Oh, you are just so talented. I love the hearts and the mice are so cute. I need to finish my projects that I have going right now so I can start some new and fun stuff for me. I am always making things for everyone else. Not that I mind that, I just want to make a few fun things for our home too.
Love the Cool emotions. Aren't they a kick in the pants?
Hubbies can be so surprizing sometimes. My husband used to hate to shop but now that we went to being a one car family, he does alot more shopping on his way home from work. Ya gotta lovem. At least I sure love mine.
Have a wonderful day

Jans Gourds said...

Do you have a pattern for the mice? They are just so cute.

Jacqueline said...

A wee mouse told me you are a winner somewhere out there...slippers in Florida! Gotta love it.
Yes, your husband was a gem to do that. I love my husband, he is so handy with buying me eye candy!
Happy New long will you be down there in Florida Diane?

What a great place to work on your wonderful creations. The hearts are very pretty and I recognize those adorable little mice with the little bell noses. Too cute.

Good morning,
I sure do love all your pretty things. I am wild about the hearts. Hearts are my favorite shape and yours are really pretty.

I hope you are having a nice day.

Cute post. Made me chuckle. The Christmas hearts are adorable...I suppose that you'll make some winter hearts, some Valentine hearts, and on and on...

I love your hearts! I have been making felt hearts myself. It is so much fun seeing where other women create. Thanks for the tour of your creative space. Computer problems are such a bummer. I hope you don't have anymore problems! Twyla
