Village Venture

I really don't like not being able to keep up with my blog. There just isn't enough time in the day!
Yesterday, I went to our fine cities Village Venture with my Mom and my son's Mother-In-Law. I found this computer bag made of oil cloth that I just couldn't pass up!

Really nice gal, Denise Bos designed it. Her web site is: Check it out. She has designed some really cute stuff!
We also made it to the Bungalow booth. Couldn't pass up her $3 wallets.
From the looks of the crowds, I would say it was a big success.
Next year, my sister, is going to come visit and go with me. 4th Saturday of every October. FUN!!!

All packed up and almost ready to go out for the day. Donna is going to take me to all her favorite stores. Lots to cram into the day and then she will drop me off at the airport. Why is it that when you want the time to fly by, it doesn't and when you want more hours in the day, they fly? Seems like those special times are the fastest hours. Finished up my second art project. Wasn't too into it. The vision was in my head but didn't transfer well to canvas. Oh it is....

Today we went to see "Couples Retreat" and "Whip It". Made our stop off at Michael's for a few necessities to finish our art projects and then off to the grocery store for our dinner fixings. Relaxing in front of the TV watching Amazing Race. Love that show! I can't believe that I leave tomorrow. These days have flown by. I sure have enjoyed this special time with my sister and can't wait to do it again.

Today my sister and I stayed in our jammies all day. We were inspired by Kelly Rae Roberts book "Taking Flight" and we each did an art project. Mine doesn't look anything like what Kelly Rae does but we used her technique. She is amazing. Check out

Here is my sister's.........

Visiting with my sister and spent some time at The Bellagio. We took alot of pictures in the gardens and here are a few of my favorites.

I Finally Did It.....

I've always wanted to start a blog, never knowing if I would have the time to keep it up. I sat up very late one night with my sister, both of us trying to do a blog. She was successful, I was not. It's been 4 months since then and I have decided to give it another try.

The purpose for my blog is to share crafts and creations with my friends and family. I really enjoy making things by hand.
