New items - Playing with my newest toy Siloutte SD

I have a new toy and I have been having a blast creating with it.  I made some new thing that I will be taking to market with me today.  They all turned out so cute.  I haven't done the tutorials yet so I know I will be doing a lot of creating with this sweet little machine.  it has taken me a long time to save up and pick which machine I wanted but I finally settle on the Silhouette because i can make my own images, saying etc.  I can also cut vinyl and iron on vinyl and fabric.  I can't wait to try those all out.  Oh and once I get a new color ink refill for my computer it can draw and then cut out so I can do things in color.  There is no limit to what I can do with this little machine if I do my homework and figure out how to work everything.  But in the meantime I am happy creating.....Anything I don't sell tonight will be going into my online store tomorrow.  Which one is your favorite??

Back on the blogging trail

It has been a hard two weeks.  I took a break from blogging, reading blogs and all stuff computer to get caught up on other things in life.  My booth is ready to run for the summer season and tommorow will be my first show of the season.  I am contimplating going or not because it is suppose to be cold and rainy.  I checked and the rain stops from 11-2  the show runs from 10-2 so it actually has a good chance of being decent weather but I am concerned about how rain proof my little tent is and I just bought brand new white walls for it that I don't want to ruin.  Actually I didn't think about the rain proofness of the tent until now.  O great now more negatives to sway me.  Sigh it is so hard to take that first step out to show off my new stuff.  I always get that fear that people won't like my stuff, that things are priced wrong too high or too low.   That my booth won't look good and on and on it goes.
  I was reading my little book of daily devotionals ABUNDANT LIVING and it was all about how can't keeps us from doing so many things our fears and doubts block us from doing all the things we can.  Sooooo I will go.  If my tent leaks I will pack up and go home and chalk it up as experience.  I will take food, hot coffee, warm clothes, and girl scout cookies that I just discovered in the pantry in my hiding place.  If You want one or maybe even two come visit me at BSU tommorow.  We will be set up right in the middle behind the administration building from 10-2.  But call me first and make sure I made it if it is pouring down rain in the morning and windy I won't be there.  I can't afford to ruin my tent and everything in it.

Inspiration is all around us. blogging a to z challenge

My latest craze is checking out all these DIY home crafting project blogs.  I keep finding the coolest projects on making things out of thrift store finds.  And I think it is great to show you my favorite finds because then when I want to find them here they are on my blog.  Easier to find then my many bookmarks.  My first project is this amazing zebra stripe rug that someone made by cutting apart 2 rugs in a  zebra stripe pattern and then taping back together.  It is amazing


This one is a really cool idea.  I've notice that tIFFANY  turqoise is a hot color this season.  I'm thinking of painting my  grid walls in my booth  that color what do you think?  Am I being overly influenced by all these blogs I'm reading?
