Monday Make Itz

Mom/Granny Fran

Here is a tribute to my mom who 
gifted me the love for crafting. 
The house was always full of numerous projects in various stages.
She shared her love of all kinds of handiwork 
with so many people. 
She patiently taught whoever wanted to learn. 

Rest in Peace--Sept. 11,1925-Sept.17,2017

4 Children
7 Grandchildren
7 Great Grands
A testament to a life well lived.

National Treasures

Autumn is an amazing season to explore this great nation.
Take some time and seek out somewhere close by to explore.
It will spark the creative juices!

Here are some incredible statistics from Motel 6:

--32 Million Americans have NEVER been to a major U.S. City.

--1 in 4 of us have NEVER been to a national park or landmark.

--25 Million Americans have NEVER seen the ocean.

"Tis the Season

It's fair and festival season in Tennessee!

If you gift for any of the fall/winter holidays,
or if that special someone has a birthday,
consider shopping at a local craft fair, festival
or even a county fair.

Not only will this help the local artisan and economy,
but most gifts are one of a kind.
I especially enjoy the handmade soaps.
Along with my super scrubbies, these
make excellent gifts.

Also try the local food!
Some food can only be enjoyed this time of year.

Monday Make Itz


So the color by number completed pages were piling up.
I didn't want to just trash all my 'masterpieces', so I had an 'aha' moment.
My almost 92 year old mom is currently in a long term care facility.
Visiting with her, it occurred to me that some residents
do not get many visitors, and/or cards or pictures to brighten their rooms.
I decided to adhere the finished pictures to colorful paper, then laminate.
This is a win-win project:
    I get to color, then papercraft!
    I can use this project as service hours for my club.
       But best of all:
             The residents get nice pictures for their rooms.

Finished coloring pages
