My next project I attempted was another pin cushion this time. I saw this on pinterest and so I had to give it a try. Here is the link to see if and get the pattern From thediydish.com. These are so fun to make. I gave the blue one to a dear friend for always being there whether it is an ear to listen or a hand to pitch it in and help. Thanks for stopping by today.

While I started out with purple and white I have realized that it is a hard color to work with so I have been gradually making changes to my room decor, I am noow going with black, white, and bright green so that things look alittle bit more polished and not so much random odd stuff. The first project I attempted was making some matching new covers for my machines, I did the first one for the E2 and then the mini cover I did also. While sewing is noot my strongest strength I think they turned out pretty good, I'm happy and so excited with the way they look.
This was my yardsale for this weekend, I finally got around to cleanning out my attic and some storage areas in building on property and this is some of my many years accumalation. Do you think I might need a 12 step program? Luckily I had a friend who came over and help me drag things down out of the attic. You never know when you are gonna meet an angel walking on this earth right next to you, I'm so thankful to have such wonderful angels(friends) in my life. Made alittle moola today but I still have about 3/4 of stuff left. Anybody want to come to my house for thier own shopping adventure, I'm sure I can hook you up with something from CHristmas, Halloween, Decor, crafts to something Come on I'm not that far away it would be worth the trip and just think if you help me get rid of all this stuff I would be more than happy to sit and crop with you once the tables are all cleared off we would have lots of space to spread out.

Thanks for looking.

I made this card today for a challenge over at http://going-buggy.blogspot.co.uk/2012/09/september-challenge.html Thought my card would be a great choice for this challenge as these colors are definitely not your red and green. The card base is a 5.25 x 7.25, used my scrap pieces with the SU 1 3/8 punch, Season Greetings was stamped in tempting turquise and cut with the spellbinder fancy tags 2, added bow and some of my stickpins, also used the dies from Quilling creations for the small flower on bow. Thanks for looking another christmas card made if I keep on at this rate I might actually finish my cards on time this year.

Seems like the scrap piles keep getting larger and larger, so I gave myself a challenge today to use up my scraps, every card I made today was done with nothing but scraps. It was actually nice completing so many cards today I did 10 total, guess that would be a record for me to make that many cards in one day. Now I have a stash for myself and am actually thinking since these were so easy and quick I might give some as christmas gifts to friends for their card stashes.
Here is another card I did with my scraps, this one is done on a 6 x6 card base and the mats were cut at 5 3/4 x 5 3/4, 51/2 x 51/2, and 51/4 x 51/4. I used the SU punch 1 3/8 for the squares, I also used my perferated roller to edge the top layer, sentiment was computer generated, SU label punch, and EK success label punch. Thank you so much for stopping by hope I have inspired you to use those scraps up.
Come back tomorrow to see my christmas card made with scraps.

Create a critter is such a cute cart I can't wait to see the complete book of Create a Critter 2. Added a few little glitter stones for a pop of color.
