Only with thine eyes…


It was slow at work today, so I asked to have the afternoon off.  I could be more productive here at home than at work.

I’m glad I did.  I was able to do some catching up on the log cabin quilt I need to get finished by Christmas.

Earlier in the week, I tried my hand at a mini scrapbook.   I’ve been wanting to do a scrapbook for each of my kids, but have been a little intimidated about it.  I’ve been collecting things of my kids since they were babies… so I have a lot of material to work with.  I’ve also been buying up scrapbook tools and accessories as I find them on clearance or in a flea market, etc.  

Earlier today Paula, a lady I work with, showed me one of the scrapbooks she has done.  She is really into the scrapbook thing and was able to give me pointers and show me how to go about laying out a page and such.   Now I’m not as intimidated about it as I was.

Here is my first scrapbook.  It is a mini book using ID tag sleeves, for some reason I had some in my craft supplies.  The little book is on the seasons of the year.

I think the next scrapbook I make will be showcasing some of the quilts I’ve made.   I plan to practice on smaller books until I get the hang of it.  Then I will start on the books for my kids.

I would welcome any scrapbook “tips of the trade” if you have any to share.  🙂

The other day I saw a sign in one of the antique/flea market shops I was in and thought it was cute.  I could totally relate to what it was saying.
That’s all I have for now.
Here’s wishing you a Fantastic Friday!
God bless and keep you,

I'm a happily married mom of two, living in Arkansas and selling AVON. Both of my children are grown and in college. I often wonder where the time went. I never thought I'd have blog but when blogs came along, I jumped on board. That just goes to show one doesn't know what the future holds. I was born in 1967 but my life truly began in 1996. That is the year I realized I need God in my life. That is the year I asked Jesus Christ into my life. So, you will see, as you follow my blog, there will be mention of God, Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit from time to time. I can't live without sharing that part of my life. I like to go to flea markets and visit antique shops and I usually find something to take home with me. I'm fairly new at crocheting. I tried to learn to crochet in my twenties but I didn't have left handed instructions. I could do it right handed but it was hard for me to keep my stitches consistent. Then a few years ago a left handed friend of mine gave me a book with left handed crocheting instructions and I learned to crochet. My first quilt was in done in 2001. Money was tight and I wanted to give my husband something nice. So I decided to make him a "blanket". Little did I know I would be hooked and still be making quilts years later. I'm starting my hand at scrapbooking and watercoloring. We will see how that goes. :) I update my AVON page each week with a special deal, so be sure to check it out. Well, that's a little about me. Hope you enjoy my blog and follow me on this journey.
