My First Post of the New Year!!

The happiest of New Years to you all! I do hope you all had a blessed and happy Christmas!
Not too bad I guess, today being only the 3rd of January and I am writing a post! A good start I think!! I hope to give my much neglected blog quite a bit more attention this year than last.
So, today I have spent quite a bit of time searching for a new blog theme for my blog today. There is this one particular web site that has a variety of blog designers on it and for the life of me! I can never seem to find it without searching for it for hours! I think it is called the scrappy cat or something similar, but I just can't seem to find it as yet! You'd think by now I would learn right?!
Yesterday, I started working on a new calendar project prototype. I am happy so far with the way it is turning out. It took me quite some time, but I finally figured out a way to make a triangular slide through drawer to fit behind the calendar, not the easiest thing I ever did do. The pics show the base of the calendar.
I do not like the placement of the holes so I am going to change that on the next one and since I am making this for my hubby, I think I will use Graphic 45's A  Perfect Gentleman. I just think it will be much "funner" than the one in the pics.
Well, I am signing off for now to work on the calendar. Everyone have a great day and a blessed New Year!!
Tons of Love!

I Am American and this is My Country!

I believe in my heart that the anger and revolt that people are voicing in the social media groups, in protest marches, in truly very small ways are simply trying to convey as do I the words that here to follow. Though extremely simple, I believe it is how most of us truly feel.
My heart feels such great sadness and such heaviness to see this country, the place that I have called home for all of my life, turn into a place that I can barely recognize any more. Considering that true, honest, hard working, Americans have sacrificed so very much for the freedoms that we see being taken from us by our own government, no less, on a daily basis. And with each new election of government offices we find ourselves governed by those who work against the further building of this once great, unified nation, but rather they only seek to tear down all that is good, and honorable. Stomping under their own feet the blood, sweat, agonizing tears of loss that help to build this country to the great nat…

Finally!!

I have for so very long, a few years now, wanted to make a doll house album. I have talked about it, drawn out ideas and designs for it, and mulled over it for quite some time. The only other project that took me this long to pull together was my first Recipe Album!! Yesterday, I decided on a design and today a theme! Two elements one absolutely must possess in order to create any thing at all! I was thinking I should like to have my book designed so that I can have interactive paper dolls in it. I thought that I would design them as well, but as I glanced through an old 2009 desk calendar by Mary Engelbreit, I decided I would try to use the many paper dolls I have in the magazines I have collected of hers over the years instead. I think I have found a suitable paper line as a base to start. So! Onward and upward I go in true Mary Engelbreit fashion!!
Wish me luck!
