Look Out Juicy

With a little help(alot) I was able to digitize this design and create a purse just like a Juicy that my daughter so loves. She has a very expensive addiction to these purses for someone who does not even have a job. I thought being a poor college student woud humble her a little.

Black and White and Red all over

Have a lot to post, had a wonderful birthday party for my parents will add the pictures as I move to the other computer that has the pictures. Mom turned 75 on Monday, so I had a birthday party for her as well as my dad as he turned 75 this summer. They live in Oregon for the summer so it was rather hard to have a party, and we also celebrated their 50the wedding anniversay which will be this summer, while they are in Oregon. It was a lot of fun, all of my moms sisters were here, the one who lives here in Phoenix did a great job of doing the food. My dads one surviving brother and his wife(my aunt) came, and then friends of mom and dads. They really enjoyed it, and I enjoyed giving them a few minutes of joy in their lives, I know my dad works really hard at taking care of my mom. Talk about unconditional love my father certainly has it for my mother, ever since her heart attack he takes care of everything. Mostly my mom, since she has no short term memory and no ambition any more, she is just not the same person she used to be. I am sorry that my youngest son will not have the memories of a grandmother that my other two do. She was a really great grandmother, and I miss her terribly.

Handsome Man


This is the first time my son has had anything on but Khaki shorts. He had to dress up for his first choir concert. I wish I could get this picture into another program besides Picasa so I could editit. It is a good picture. He had a total melt down getting ready, he last comment was I have OCD and these pants are driving me crazy. After the fact he was a complete gentleman. Choir has been a good experience for him.

Were Off

We are on our way to Disneyland. This will be Caydens first time, he wants to go to Mickeys house, so we are going to visit him. You really have to see Disneyland through a child's eyes. Of course now he is rather apprehensive about the whole deal, every time Mickeys club house comes on he wants to know what characters will be there, and how close will they be. He wants to see them, yet he does not want them to close.

Coil Binder

This would be a picture of the new (been in the box for 3 years) binder coil machine I tried out yesterday. I have had it for a very long time, opened it yesterday to use it. Could not get it to punch holes, my husband looked at it, opened it up to see what was wtong, and continued to take pieces off to make it work, by the end all that was left were parts and the darn thing never did work.

I made this table top quilt for my father for fathers day, so he could have something to put on his table for the holiday. Since my mothers incident where she lost her memory and the part that gives her the mother quality, everything has fallen to my dad. My mother used to decorate the house for every occasion. I though this might help.

Jill Penney

Can I tell you how fun, and education it has been in my classroom these past three weeks, I have had Jill Penney in here working with my students. It started out just as a presentation of her work, how she got started, education etc. From there the students carved stamps from drawings they did, after seeing her stamps that are produced by the kids were very inspired. After she left I received an e-mail from her that the students had been contacting her and would like her to come back and do dolls. Oh my goodness, she brought in some of her dolls, and the kids got to work. It has been a busy busy time her in the class, time has flown by and the kids have learned a great deal. They really have learned a lot from her, she has the patience of a saint, very generous with her time, and she has been very inspirational for the kids, some of my students who I have a hard time getting anything out of have actually been sewing and participating. Seeing her work up close, and being able to actually look at Daniels sketch books and hear the stories behind them, and there are definitely stories to go with each of her dolls, is really a privileged event. She did a wonderful job, and I think she is now considering teaching at Artunraveled next year. Cool Huh?

luon St Pierre

I spent yesterday morning in Tucson at Luon St. Pierre's parents house. She has come to town to do furniture deliveries. I will post pictures soon, I have a new camera and have a hard time downloading pictures. Her work is absolutely amazing.

Tomorrow night Doug and I are going to see Bruce Springsteen in concert, I thought we had good seats as we on the floor, except there are no chairs so we are standing in the mosh pit, at my age, I will probably be a bruised mess. Bruce is rather old himself, there should be chairs for all.

Duct Tape

I don't know how people lived without duct tape, this has got to be the best invention ever, well maybe glue. With two boys there is very little in my house that does not seem to be sporting one or the other of these inventions.

YuDu printer

I have had some questions about this printer, the one thing I will say is that on Joanns coupon it specifically says it cannot be used on this printer, however I was able t use mine as I think they were unaware. The website is

Screen Printer

I guess there was a reason I could never win a bid on the Gocco printer on e-bay, because this was coming. I just saw this at Joanns this weekend, went home and watched the video on their website, and now I am waiting until Saturday, when I can use my 50% off coupon to purchase it.

CHA is here again, I remember attending this event last year. I went as a guest of Carol and Jim Ramsey of Stampotique Originals. It was very interesting, and I really enjoyed it, yet I felt guilty about being so close to Disneyland and not having my family with me. I would liked to have gone again this year, but I was fortunate enough to attend once, so I know what it is like. I think I need to dream bigger, maybe sometime I could attend as a buyer or maybe as an author. Who knows what the future hold. My friend Casey tells me I need to dream big.

Apron Swap

Aprons seem to be the hot thing right now, I wear one at work most of the time just to keep some of the paint off of my clothes. I joined this swap to see what other people are up to, it is still open if you are interested.
