Project to share . . .


This is sideways but if you tilt your head just right . . . this is one of my favorite projects from Holiday Hideaway!! We created this awesome pin from an ordinary domino, mica, alcohol inks. My favorite part was the tiny little wire bird nest! Too adorable! The frame is a mini collage with a button to hold the pin when you are not wearing it!! So cool!!

Thanksgiving 2007. . .


Thanksgiving at our house included a birthday . . . mine! The boys took care of the turkey

deep fried with Cajun seasoning . . . Zack created his famous mushroom sauce which was instead of the tradional turkey gravy. As for me . . . I baked pies and made cranberry sauce . . .
Oh and for dessert I blew out the candles on my Lemon Mereingue Pie!!

Tom and Sue's OZARK adventure!

Tom and Sue's OZARK adventure! This was our 2nd annual Autumn Ozark Adventure to Arkansas . . . WOW! The weather was incredible and sunny and so pretty!! We stayed in Mountain Home, Arkansas this year. It wasn't long before I found a Local Scrapbook Store called Scrapbook Addiction that was just as cute as can be!! It was packed with great paper and the decor was a little industrial edgy kind of feel!! My favorite part was a huge frame that displayed the samples from the talented design team!!

Next we drove to Mountain View for the 25th annual "Beanfest"!
It was truly amazing to see the thousands of people that came from all around for the festival. They cook up giant pots of beans in big kettles and serve it to everyone for free with homemade cornbread!
Just too much fun! It was the perfect weekend!

Tom and Sue

KEEPSake Christmas . . .

58 Shopping Days until Christmas . . . I guess since we didn't have much Autumn weather this year it's almost unbelieveable that the HOLIDAYS are just around the corner . . .
If you haven't already signed up . . . Keepsake Christmas is this coming Saturday, November 3rd! Check out this post from last week for more details!!
