It also has a cheesecloth ruffle. With a cute red ribbon hanger.I sewed on 3 buttons and a vintage paper heart.
Here is a close up ...

Spent my gift card

I have never liked gift cards! I don't like to give or get them. I have always felt they were too impersonal. If you get someone a should get them a gift. 
That was until THIS CHRISTMAS!
My hubby got me one at Joanns, He said just try'll like it LOL 
He was right!
( I still like gifts better BUT the card was fun)
I got to go into the store and get whatever I wanted.  
First off Christmas ribbon marked down 29cents each! I mean seriously!!
Tim Holtz saftey pins. I have wanted some of these forever!
Tons of paper..I was getting LOW :)
STAMPS was my main goal. These are great! Can't wait to use them.
More stamps!!
Everything I got was on sale! Grand total......after Gift card...$4.23 out of pocket! 
So..maybe next year..
when relatives say..I want to get Cyn a gift card..I will tell hubby to give them the green light!

Girls With Cameras:Week one

I am linking up with Chrissy for her Girls with Cameras weekly share of pics. I will show you what my week was like.  All the wonderful things going on. 

Here is my very HAPPY hubby watching the Denver Broncos STOMP out the Steelers! Football is a pretty big thing in my family. Oddly enough the women get into more then the men LOL. 

I got a little craft time in. I am working on a blog giveaway for Valentines day.
 See that messy shelf in the back..a sign of a busy crafter LOL. or so I tell myself! 
Since we are getting to see our Grand daughter more, I am really feeling like a Grandma. I am finally starting a scrapbook of her. She was so tiny in this pic. CREATING is such good therapy! 
My morning breakfast. Simple begal. I have a chronic illness called Gastroparesis. It is not a FUN one at all! But for the most part, I am managing my symptoms and living a normal life. Praying to the Lord above 2012 will bring a cure for this unpredictable, silent illness. 

Well how has your week went?? Won't you link up with Chrissy and share! I'd love to see what you have been up to. Until next time, May God hold you in his loving arms and keep you safe my friend.

Wonderful gifts from Rebecca

A few weeks ago Rebecca at A Re-purposed life
was celebrating her Birthday. 
We all left comments on what we have learned this year..
 Mine was about prayer. How I can not go a day without speaking to my heavenly father.
 Rebecca chose my comment( as well as a few others) and sent me her beautiful things she makes. 
 First off this is the paper it came wrapped in. I know exactly what I am going to use this paper for. My Grand-daughters scrapbook I am starting. 
This is a heart ornament. I put it on my Christmas tree. It has a picture of Jesus knocking at a door. 
 This is a velvet bracelet. This is So beautiful in person! It has a metal chain and a cross and little heart. 

If you get the chance pop on over and visit Rebecca. She is a wonderful artist and has a wonderful home. She is also a woman of Faith.  Rebecca THANK YOU again!! Such wonderful gifts from a wonderful lady.
