Quilled Cross... Just a cross?

I have decided to quill another cross. No, not just another cross; every one is different and everyone perceives it differently. What does the cross represent to you? I have attached a time lapsed video of a fanned flower on my Facebook page at fun. Also, I am giving you a sneak peak of what's to come...

Band-Aid Friction Block Review

I usually recieve free products to sample and review, but this was such an amazing product, I had to share...
After getting blisters from flip flops my first day in Vegas, I switched shoes- which happened to be a new pair of heels. They were an expensive pair that were supposed to be a soft comfy leather. I had band-aids covering my existing blisters and they were older so they weren't sticking or staying in place so I ventured into the nearest pharmacy to get more band aids. I happened to come across this product and was desperate, so i purchased it. The next morning, I applied it to my pinky toes, my heels, and across the top where I had tender spots from my other shoes. By afternoon, I started to feel a little tender, so I reapplied. I did this every day for the next 4 days. When I returned home, I found tiny blisters on my pinky toes and that was it! This stuff saved my feet! I only had the new heels to wear for those four days and this stuff was amazing! I highly recommend for new shoes or before walking a long time or distance. What a treasure! Thanks Band-Aid!

Take the Old and Create the New...again!

After I turned my daughters pajama pants into shorts, I wondered what I could do with the leg fabric that I had cut off. Well, my preschoolers have a grocery tote bag that they like to play with and we've wanted to get more so they wouldn't have to share.  Problem solved! I simply turned it inside out and sewed one opening shut.  For the handle, I just cut a long enough strip to add to the top and folded one side into the center, folded over the other side on top like a brochure and then pinned it and sewed it.  I then sewed it into the top sides of the bag and voila!  A grocery tote bag!

Take the Old and Create the New.

My daughter has grown so much the last few years.  We haven't bought her any new pajama pants in a while because she was just wearing everyday shorts while it was hot.  Come winter time, she tried on her old pants and they were too long to be capris and too short to be pants.  Instead of going out and wasting money buying more, I decided to cut them off and make them into shorts.  I brought out my dusty sewing machine, cut them off and sewed a hem into the bottom.  It wasn't very difficult and made something bend new!  (The actual hard part was remembering how to thread the machine and refill and replace the bobbin!)
