How fun are these????

Adorable, right?
These are Jamberry Nail Wraps.
I was just recently introduced to these by a friend
and now I"m addicted.
I don't paint my nails very often
because nail polish, even when dry
can rub off on fabric. (yes it's happened to me)
These are vinyl and come in over 300 styles.
AND they don't rub off on fabric!

Have you ever painted your nails and ruined them
before you even leave the house?
Or jump in the shower only to get out
and find your nails are already chipping?
I've done dishes and housework and these are still adorable!

You just heat them a bit and apply some pressure
and Voila!
They last up to 2 weeks with no chipping or peeling!
One sheet of wraps is $15.00 and you get 
2 - 3 manicures and pedicures.
WAY less than a salon manicure.
AND if you buy 3 sheets,
you get 1 free :)
I'm not selling these,
I'm just excited about the product so I wanted to share!

I'm in LOVE with these.
And even if you're having a bad hair day
your nails will always be cute!

Cross My Heart :)

Cross Country Stitching Magazine April 2005
I'm not really sure when cross stitching became my obsession.
I mean,
I need to stitch.....

I pretty much stitch every single evening.
I can sit quietly next to my hunky hubby

while he watches whatever
"shoot 'em up everyone dies" man movie.
We are together,
both enjoying our favorite past times
and it works for us :)

This is my current WIP.
I stitched this design a few years back
for my daughter
and I've wanted to stitch it for myself ever since.
I love the little sheep with the hearts.
I mean seriously cute right?

Hope you are all finding time to be crafty.
It's good for the soul :)

I'm baaaack......

Well you may have noticed that I haven't been blogging
for a while.
I've been a bit busy :)
My beautiful daughter is due to deliver
our little granddaughter Daisy
any day now.
I went with a "Daisy" theme for the shower.

We had fun photo props......

It was a truly lovely party
and so many of her friends attended.
I can't show all the photos because there are just too many.

I had to buy this little jacket and high top tennis shoes....
I just had to.....

I also made her a dozen new flannel washcloths.
The tutorial for these is on the right hand side of the blog.

I took David to Bubble Fest at the Discovery Science Center
for his Birthday "Nana and Me" special day.

I took Gabriel to the movies for his 
Birthday "Nana and Me" special day.

I'm still hand quilting Daisy's new quilt.....

I finished up 2 cross stitch projects......

And I made a new liner for Daisy's bassinet.

Jose and I went to Pioneer Town with 
Star Yamaha Chapter 230.
We had 40 bikes on this ride.
Great people and yummy lunch :)

And because we've gone on 3 consecutive rides
we were officially voted in to the Chapter.

So I'm officially a "Biker Chick" now :)
Who knew?

Oh...and Barkley had a tumor removed from his face
the church we planted 10 years ago lost our lease
and so we have to close our doors.
That means I will be doing all the paperwork
to dissolve the church.
I'm excited to see what God has in store for us.
We attended a wonderful church this Sunday
and it already feels like home :)
God is so good!
