This is Spring?

Spring hasn't quite sprung here. We woke up to SNOW. Of course, Travis was really mad. He's tired of the snow. I went out to shovel and it was HEAVY and WET. We got about 1.5 inches. Now it's 48 degrees and the new snow it melted and the old snow is going quickly. I thought I downloaded the pictures I took this morning and realized I hadn't put them into the computer and I already deleted them from my camera! Darn it!

I took the Foxy girl out to get her washed and I took her out for a drive to dry her off and I had my camera so I took some pictures of her. She got new seat covers, too.

If you haven't tasted these, THEY ARE GOOD! Lemon kisses.....mmmmmm. I bought them at Target for 50% off after Easter. I love sales.

Well, I hope you all are having a sunny day, even if the weather isn't perfect outside. :)

Banner and Friends and a Foxy Girl

It all started when I made little bookmarks for our bible study group. One of the ladies mentioned that "someone"(as she looked at me) should make some banners for our church since the walls are pretty plain. I must add, that our little church meets in the SB Raquet Club. Anyway, there is a picture on the front of the bulletin every week and so I copied it and made this banner. I used the crayon technique that my smart chick friend Monica taught us on her blog. I "colored" the little lines on the lighthouse. The rest is pretty much applique. I'm pretty happy with how it turned out.

This is our little blue jay friend and his new squirrel friend. We're not quite sure if this was a young jay or just sick, AND, the next morning there were feathers in the yard, so we think he may have been eaten. He was sleeping all puffed up under one of our chairs, then he moved to under the tree and was eating. Travis went out to see him and he didn't fly away like they normally do, which is why we think he was young or sick. He was so cute!

We just got a new sticker for the Foxy girl. I go to an Element Owner's Club discussion forum and there was a thread about stickers on your Element. There are some CUTE stickers that we may have to get, but so far, this is what we have. The new one from the EOC is on the left corner. That's Anisa driving, going off to hang out with her friends.

Happy Easter!

I just wanted to wish all my friends and family a blessed Easter. What a wonderful thing we celebrate....Jesus is risen!!

We started this morning with church. Coming out of church, we had SNOW! Just small, little flakes. Travis was mad, and I didn't really care. I was having fun looking at all the beautiful little flakes falling on the windshield. Sara and I ran to get some movies and then came home and chilled for most of the day. We had a ham, taters, salad and rolls. Oh, yeah, and Dr. Pepper! :) Sara had some chick friends over and I watched Dan In Real Life. I liked it and I really liked the part where nobody in my house was talking during the movie! :) Anisa is down at Wisconsin Dells with some friends. Our day has been splendid and I hope your day was fantastic!!!! hugs and kisses to you all!!! :)

Egg Baby

Sara had to carry around an egg for a week for health class. They had to take care of the egg like they would take care of a baby, well, kind of. I thought it would be fun to make her egg baby a snow suit and a quilt (any excuse to sew!). Here are the results. This isn't actually her egg baby, this is my egg model. Doesn't she look nice and warm?

Here is the little bed Sara made for her egg baby and the quilt I made her. Heck, you all knew I was a little strange in the head! :) :) :) hee hee

Today I'm getting the church banner done!!!!! yippee.....when I get it done, I'll post the pics. Hopefully in a couple of hours. We had a dusting of snow last night, but it's drizzling now, just in case you were wondering.

no surprise

Well, it snowed last night. I'm not that surprised, since it's still "technically" winter. So, this morning when I went to shovel the driveway I noticed in the ice there were "snowflake" patterns. The picture didn't turn out that terrific, but I wanted to share. They're pretty cool.

Travis was gone the last couple of days in Chicago and Milwaukee. He's coming home this evening, so I must run to finish picking up the house. Just a couple of things, but the kids will be home from school in a little bit and I have some sewing I want to get to. :)

Have a terrific day!! :)

Random and Crafty stuff

I haven't been on the computer much lately. Actually, I don't know what I've been doing, but my week has flown by!

I've wanted to show you this building since I last posted. It's a building we saw in Minneapolis. Here is a link to the Newspaper Article. We were going to get gas and saw it and had to come back the next day to take a picture of it. It reminds me of a Disneyland Ride how it's all frozen.

Here is my latest craftiness. It's made with a Mix & Mingle by Sandy Gervais for Moda charm pack. At first, I didn't know what to do with it, so I just started sewing the squares together and cutting. Then, I really didn't know what to do with it. I knew I wanted something angled to go in the stairway. This is what I ended up with. I think I like it. :) It's not my normal colors, but I do like the purples in there. Today I'm working on a banner for my church. The walls are so plain right now and it needs to be decorated! :) I hope everyone is having a peachy day! :)
