The Black Hole of Unfinished Projects!

If a project is just not working out, give yourself permission
to put it away, give it away, or throw it away.

I had a project staring at me every time I
went into my craft room. I finally decided that
I truly did not want to take precious crafting time to finish it
and it was just messing up the creative flow---
it was a Black Hole.
I boxed it up and put it in the closet, perhaps to be
revisited at a less stress filled time in my life.
Now onto other projects that make me smile!

Let's make some SMILES!

Last week I celebrated another year on the planet.
The dreariness of January winter days sometimes makes it
difficult to enjoy the day, but receiving lots of Happy Birthday
texts, emails,phone calls, cards, gifts and the annual trip to Cracker Barrel
to enjoy a slice of Coca Cola Cake (servers even sang!)
made it a festive day.

Never underestimate the power of a Card or 'I'm thinking of you"
through other means of communication.

Enjoy these happy pictures to brighten winter days!

Lots of Pictures!

Take lots of pictures of friends and family, not just on special occasions
but the ordinary everyday as well.
If stored on disks or memory cards, the pictures don't take up much space
You never know when you may need one.

For example: the hometown newspaper is doing a special section on long married couples.
My parents have been married 64.5 years and the paper asked for a more recent photo.
I happened to snap a few at a family gathering not too long ago--probably one of the
best they have taken in a long time.
I will share these pictures with the paper to celebrate this lifelong union.

Pre-Made Photo Album Gifts

When a baby is born--so is a grandmother! 

A few years ago I made a Baby Girl scrapbook. Pictures, journaling,along
with a few more embellishments is all that it would need to be finished!

This proud 'Oma' (German for grandma) will now be able to finish this book
with the recent birth of a granddaughter!

I enjoy making and giving pre-made photo/scrapbooks
to new parents and grandparents.
Most people do not have the time to make the pages, but
they would have a few minutes to place pictures into an almost completed album.
(Pictures need a place to live other than a shoebox.)
I also include the adhesive with the gift.
Small 'brag' books can be made out of inexpensive photo albums. 
Decorate the front and add pretty paper to the picture pockets.

I have also found some nice pre-made albums to purchase.

Purchased Pre-Made Photo Album

Just add photos.

 A Baby Boy Book I Made, just add photos.

Greetings Crafters,
   It's been too long since I've posted, but my elderly father has been fighting double pneumonia. He is home now with home health care, but still has a long road to recovery. Please keep all in your prayers.
   Yesterday I realized that it was a month until Valentines Day, so it's time to plan your handmade notes of love. Many websites have great ideas, or even free printables if you have many to make.
    A few of my favs: spoonful.comfreeprintables.net, organizedchristmas.com (click on Valentines Day.)

    Happy Crafting from an Icy Middle Tennessee!

PS-Don't forget to check out my favorite blogs listed to the right!
