I just have to ask why?

Yesterday Gavyn and I had some running to do so since T J Max was across the street from Fresh Market I wanted to go in there for a bit and look around.  So I get out of my car  and go around to get Gavyn.  We started to walk  and when I went to step off the medium I fell and I fell hard, I landed on my left knee, skinning and bruising it  and apparently twisted my right ankle.  It was such a shock  and the pain was bad  that I almost passed out, but I still had gavyn by the hand.  I told him  we needed to set there for a moment to let me get my self together.  He looked at me  and said  "grandma you scared me"  well scared grandma too.


Now  the thing that concerned me the most  is NO ONE  came  to help.  And  there was a woman setting in her car right next to my car  and people on the side walk  but  no one came to see if I was ok.  Now if it had been just me  that wouldn't have bugged me so much  but the fact  that I had a 5 year old with me has really concerned me.

What is wrong with people?  I would have went to someone to make sure they were ok.  Isn't that the humane thing to do?  Especially when you see  that they have a young child with them

Today is my mom's birthday

So  I have a cake to bake  and take to her  and I made her a rooster/chicken coaster.  For years every time you ask her what would you like for your birthday, Mother's day or any time it was time for a gift  she will joke and say she wants a chicken.  So I try to some how incorporate a chicken into the gift.  I also bought her a pretty navy blue pocketbook  that I think she is going to love.


I finally got my next paper collection finished and listed.  Got to LOVE  some lady bugs.  Just click on the picture and go to ArtFire

Decoupageing with my digital's

Doing digital's  I learn something new all the time.  Just because it is a 300*300  doesn't necessarily mean  that  that is the only way you can print it.  With some of the sample I did  the bug was done as a 300*300  and the lady was done as a 500*500, just printed in 2 different  sizes.  I figured I better get some samples done to show some if the ways these digital images can be used.  This is just the beginning of what these can be used for.  I used 3 coats of gloss Mod Podge, letting the dry thoroughly between each coat.  Then I waited 24 hours and sprayed with a high gloss sealer

Well the votes aren't looking to good for Etsy

I recieved an email last night from Zibbet  and they were asking me to vote for them, so I went in and checked it out  and went ahead and voted  and was suprised at what I seen.  Out of 72772 votes ArtFire 45% and Zibbet 41% were kicking  then I seen that Etsy was at 3%  Wow  that was kinda shocking.  All of these votes  and they were only 3%,  Voting closes at 11:59 P.M. EST on Tuesday, March 8, 2011. The winners will be announced on Tuesday, March 15, 2011, right here, on the About.com DIY Fashion GuideSite.

ahhh the start of my retro diva collection

After many hours that turned into weeks of preparing for the diva's  I have a listing up on Etsy.  It is a 5 paper and picture scrap booking collection  and I couldn't be more thrilled with the outcome.  I will get this in my ArtFire shop as well, because due to all the little fees on Etsy I have made the decision  to list only one one Etsy  and once sold will not be re listed  but will be available on ArtFire since there I pay only one fee a month.

Ideas for fall already

So I am watching the Michael Kors  fall fashion show and here is what I seen.  The colors were  gray,  beige, a mauve color  and a beautiful purple  almost a grape color.  The accessories were big chokers wide cuff bracelets and platform heels.  Now 2 things that really caught my eye was an over the shoulder  faux  fur pocketbook  that looked very similar to one I crocheted a few years ago ( time to bring out the hook and furry yarn) The second was a beautiful wide scarf  with the pockets on each end.   Just throwing out some ideas here.

Now  about more digital's  I have been working hard preparing some retro and vintage divas for some up coming projects  here are some completed ones that will soon make an appearance in my shops .  I took lot's of patterns  that I purchased at  the thrift shops  and scanned  and started  erasing, editing, repairing some to get this group together.







I have put in a freebie today.  It is 500*500 in size  and 300 dpi's just right click  and save
