Vintage handkerchief and what to do with them?

Wow! I have not been able to post in over a week. Been busy , but also have not been feeling the best. I have been cleaning my craft room and will have before and after pictures soon. I am almost done. YEAH!!! I did find these vintage handkerchiefs from a friend of mine. I just love the colors and how dantiy they look... I am just not sure what to do with them. If any one has any ideals I would love for you to leave me a comment. They are just so pretty!! I did do another template for Ebay. Its my favorite one yet.... The funny thing each new one I do is my favorite one! At least when I am not feeling so wonderful I can still work on my templates. That's just alittle of what I have been up to these days. Hopefully with my craft room getting cleaned up I can start making a few dolls, or ornies again. Till next time.... Colleen

What's in the Jar?

One of my friends, Annie was talking about how she was going to take a jar and fill it with chores to do. I think she called it "chore a day" jar. I have been thinking about that and I think I like the ideal for myself too. Thank you Annie!I will call my jar *The to do list* So here is my jar...... I started listing some chores that I know of right away and I am sure I will add some more as time goes. Some chores might take me more then a day. My first *to do* is my craft room. It is a small room and I really need to clean and organize it up. I tried to work on some valentine crafts but it was no fun at all because of the mess in that room. I did take some before pictures and will take after pictures and make a post of it when it is all done. I think doing something like the jar will help me keep to the task, I am the type that does alittle of this and that and never get anything finished somedays. Does anyone know what I am talking about? LOL If you have any other ideals that work for you I would love to hear about them. Well thats it for now......until next time.

Fabric and pattern

I went shopping all by myself and went to one of my favorite stores The Cutting Edge. I hardly ever get to go it alone these days and I really don't like taking my 5 year old with me. This is the kind of store you go and enjoy the fabrics, patterns, yarns............ There are so many fabrics I would love to come home with , so many patterns to try someday. I found a the vintage fabric fat quaters there and the pattern I just love the vintage fabric, and there was much more I wanted to come home with. Guess I will have to go back when I find some extra cash. The red heart fabric I picked up at Wally World. I loved it and not sure what I will make with it yet but I will let you know. The pattern is a cute apron for girls...I been wanting to make some aprons. I will start with one for Erika and go from there. Maybe make a few extra and list them on Ebay too!! Other then that it is a quiet weekend here. Cold outside, warm in the house.

A new start for the New Year

Welcome to 2009! I had a very nice Christmas and new year and I hope you all did to. When you start a new year , you make resolutions for the new year. I plan to make a few but I seem to break a few after awhile but I keep trying! This year I hope to get more organized with my house, crafts, computer........ and the list goes on. My craft room need a major clean out and redo NOW!!! If I get that done I will be so happy. If I was not so embarassed by that room I would show you before and after pictures but I think I will just show after ones. I would like to get into the routine of workout 5 times a week. I use to walk and stopped about 4 years ago and I am missing it and the lbs have been creeping up on me. I won't let myself feel bad if I fall behind , I will just keep trying all year long. I also want to keep working on templates and banners for the new year. I did these two new templates last week. I have them listed on Ebay right now. This is a cute pink raggedy ann one , perfect for valentines or anyone who loves pink...
