I love the looks of this....it is one of my favorites of all the cards I have done...
I settled in for the day to relax and have a bit of fun...this is the day when who ever wanted to see me could come to visit...and my friend Alice and I had a bit of crafting planned too...we wanted to make the wind chimes from dinner plates... we all gathered around the kitchen table
Devin wasn't interested after a little bit so him and mom did this
Miss Danika helped us to string some beads...she is very good at it too
we worked and talked and got our visit in..
assembling the chimes
in its new home
it gets a soft gentle breeze here..
I went plate shopping while up north...great deals
this on only cost me $.50
I love to craft you all know that...but to do it with a long distant friend is a memory that will stay with me...We met many many years ago and always keep in touch..
I am a part of the Blissful ATC Swap Blog we were challenged to make a storage for our ATC's and I need you all to go and vote for your favorite (which possibly could be mine), but there are several to choose from
I will post you a reminder...but until then please look mine over
I will decorate the drawers different as I fill them...
