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!

Change... It Does Come!

There is absolutely no way that I can settle down long enough to put into words all the change and emotions I am and have been experiencing over the past two weeks! So, for now, I am just going to share a little with you.
I have less than one week now before I move to the Raleigh area with my hubby and grandson! I know! This simple sentence in no way explains anything at all! I have a sister and her family who live in the area. I have an Aunt, an Uncle, three cousins, who live in the area, not to mention nieces and nephews who have grown into young adults without me. Two of my grandchildren live there as well.
Lifetime of a story put short? My husband and I have lived away from home and family since we were first married and this December we will have been married for 32 years! I know! A whole 3/4's of a lifetime! LOL! We have been apart due to his job in the area for almost 18 months only seeing each other on the weekends. But two weeks ago we decided we were not waiting on the …

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!
