One example

of trying to get as much bang for the buck as possible . this was originally a 6x6 piece of patterned paper. I made a few , all right maybe some die cut butterflies . I think I can use the remaining paper as a background for something . I'll put it in my stash. If you dont know most crafters have a "stash" of stuff for use at a later time . when or how ? only the future will tell. anyways take a gander . The yellow background here is simply a bright yellow piece of card stock so that you can see the details. this is the flash version.

And this is the without flash version

Hodge Podge

I belong to a group of bloggers called Paper Bloggers Re-united. Some of us recently attended Scrapfest 2013 in Minneapolis, MN. We took a bunch of pics and I'll be posting them through out the next couple weeks or maybe longer .
Here we are on day 3 of our trip. left to right.  me, Brenda, Nancy, and Maggie.

We have had some interesting conversations on our little blog . One of them was about shoes. I had mentioned how boots go with anything including shorts. Today presented a situation to be so attired . I was wearing shorts and the closest shoes where my ostrich boots. I originally thought I might have carried out the trash but that couldnt have been the case as its Sunday. Trash doesnt run on Sundays. Must have been when honey drove me to get coffee @ the local QT.
Definitely not my best pic ever. Embarassed? never

Its WOYWW time

today must be my lucky day . I walk in after grabbing the camera and look whats in the center of my desk! A completed project. I did NOT move a thing to take this pic . there is one more pic but it shows my neighbors messy yard thru the window. the significance is the tool caddy that normally rests in front of the window has been moved . Originally it gave me more room to work but now its just more room to make a mess on my desk LOL
