My Goodwill find

 And, also the candy dishes  made from old record albums..what a way to recycle. 

Is on the look out for these T~Shirts starting tonight, Living right on the edge of Campus isn't always the greatest but, this new "Fools Fest" they have planned for this weekend, with over 10,000 extra drunk college kids coming to town..I guess I need to protect the house and my sanity.  Wish me luck~~~And, them luck if they start ringing the doorbell at 1am again, or egging the houses or peeing on our fences and porches. Ugghhh, not looking forward to it.  So, BRING IT ON FOOLS~~~

Trying to figure out this Blog business

Well, I've just been sitting here reading and looking through so many blogs, and I am so confused.  But, I will get the hang of this soon.  As for crafts, sewing, crocheting, I'm keeping busy with all of that. Thanks to so many new ideas.

Between trying to do all this crafting, looking for a job and watching Grandkids, I'm kept very busy.  I lost my job almost 2 years ago, when the company sold and went out of business so, I've kept quite busy around the house but, I've got to get back to work. 

What's new with us~Well, Chad and his family just got back from Spring Break vacation.  Jackie and the kids are busy as always, Basketball starts soon again for Andrew and Kayla starts softball real soon and then Killian baseball starts, then here comes football season and cheerleading and things start all over again.  LOL  They all keep me busy.

Well, off to figure out this blogging.  Have a great Tuesday friends~~

Well, here I am new to crafting and blogging!

Well, after years and years of really NOT LIKING sewing. I started sewing.  I am enjoying it so much and have been working on things for the house, oh what fun this has been. I have been crocheting for over a year and a half now and finally getting the hang of it and other crafts I am working on.  What am I getting myself into?!

Well, thanks to my daughter in law who has gotten me "HOOKED" on blogs here I am...  :) 

I am a 5 year Breast Cancer Survivor and the mother of 2 Great Grown kids, Chad and Jackie. I also have the worlds best daughter in law, Kimberly.  Yep, she's the blogger.   And, they have all given me the best Grandchildren ever.  Chad's 2 are my youngest grandchildren, Killian who is 6 and Cohen who is 2.  Jackie gave me my 2 oldest grandchildren, Makayla who is 10 now and Andrew who is 8. 

Not sure what I am doing yet so this is what I am starting with. I will post some pictures of some of our finished crafts.  I live with Jackie and her 2 children so she and I have been busy being crafty!
