Emma’s making her Reindeer

Emma and her reindeer

If you have not met yet, this is my grand daughter Emma. She just turned 5 years old and she loves to do crafts with grandma. She likes to visit Miss Holly blog when she come by grandma house and Miss Holly had some reindeer on her blog so we wanted to try and make some.

She love her reindeer Reindeer and Emma 2010

How we did then is we put Emma foot on the brown card stock and drew around mostly the back of her foot. The we took some lighter tan card stock and had Emma hold both of her hands down on the paper and we drew her hands and cut then out for the horns. But we can not make just one, we have to make one for Uncle Dave, Miss Lee, Mommy, and she even wanted to send Miss Holly one but I do not have her address so Miss Holly if you read this please email me your address.

Today is a day to always Remember



For the benefit of my mostly US audience, in the UK and many other countries we buy paper poppies around the 11th to commemorate those who served and those who fell during the World Wars 1 & 2, The Vietnam War, The Civil War, The Saudi Arabia War, Iraq War and sorry if I missed any other war.  All these MEM and WOMAN need  to be HONORED AND REMEMBERED for they gave their lives for everyone of us so we can live in FREEDOM. The poppies specifically memorialize the killing fields in France and Belgium during WWI where the "lions led by donkeys" on both sides killed each other in unimaginable numbers. Day in, day out. Only the Spanish Flu of 1918 out killed the machine guns, mustard gas and barbed wire.

In that spirit, no matter what your politics, no matter where you live today, no matter what else you are doing or celebrating this November 11th, I would ask only this: Please take a moment today to remember the Fallen and their sacrifices, no matter where they fell nor for what cause.
Let us make it so that, for today at least, we will remember them.

                      “FOR THE FALLEN”
They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them.

For my card I used white Liquid Applique’ and sprinkled some white glitter on the Appique’ I found some thread that had gold green and red in it so I used that as light on the edge of the roof. Used Diamond glaze from Judi Kins for the window. In the right hand corner is what is called Classic Clips, there a soft metal and you can bend then over the corner. The trees are button, I cut the backs off and use my dremel tool to sand the back smooth. Snowflake is from Trim a Tree sections at Hobby Lobby. The doily is just a paper one and I added some green glitter dots. Thanks for stopping by. Have a great week.

An Award from My Friend Shirley


My wonderful sweet friend Shirley thinks I should have this award. I can understand some people might think I have an attitude problem but I hope they think it is a good one. I thank you Shirley http://nannieflash.blogspot.com/ for the award. I need to tell you 3 things that make me different. After I do that I have to send this award off to 5 different people and then I will received a $5.00 Gift Certificate from Digi’s with Attitude. Here is their store  http://www.digiswithattitude.com/  Challenge blog and can sign up for their newsletter.  http://digiswithattitudechallenges.blogspot.com/

Three things different about my self.

1. I love my friends, my friends mean a lot to me. You will know if you are my REAL friend if when we talk and their is no fake stuff we both can tell it like it is. I have a lot of friends some are so so but my REAL friends, I will do ANTYTHING FOR.

2. I’m a very organized person. I like being that way. When things get crazy I have to STOP and get things back in order so I can do my crafting. I would say I pretty much know where everything is in my craft room and house. My have a large craft room and I have LOTS of my supplies.
