More Craft Room Craftiness

Hey It's HolloWeen!  That's about as spooky as I get anymore.  I am looking forward to pictures of the grandkids costumes this year.  Here that D?  Most of you who are visiting with me here don't know my daughter "D" she guest blogged with me during American Idol last year.  She was so funny on the phone that I made her, I mean I asked her to post with me.  Anyway she is a very busy Mom, her sweet ones are Sarah, Caleb and baby Anah.  She told me last night that Anah is crawling, pulling up on her feet and she waves with her hand.  But all these things she does with a sense of humor.  She also said that when Anah wakes up in the morning she stands up in her crib and yells at her.  Like "hey" but not actually saying hey cause she is only 7 months old she just yells and it kind of sound like hey.  And it's more like Hey!  

She is a fiesty one.  However not the first fiesty child my oldest child has.  Here are the first two.  You know Sarah.  this her little brother Caleb.  I took these pictures in early September, they love their bags for school.

Caleb is a sweet boy, but if you look deep in his eyes, 

you can see it, fiesty!  He loves his sister, though.  He used to call her "my durah."  

I guess this is when the picture taking started to get a little too much for "Durah"

Love those kids ...  fiesty, ooh there fun.

I had the pleasure of keeping this little one this week while her mom worked and look for a new sitter. 

We had a day care scare.  I went to pick her up and found her sleeping under blankets.  On her head!  She was very hot and wet, like she had been sweating (I don't know if 2 month olds can sweat)  Made me cry and it made me mad!  

So, I decided that I was going to keep her until she got old enough to tell us what was going on in her life.  Like say 6 or maybe 16.  Anyway life interrupted and it became apparent that I was not going to be able to keep her everyday.  And that's when help showed up.  I really do think that Kristen found a wonderful lady to keep her and only her, at her home.  I'll keep you posted.

In the meantime, I worked on this last night.   
It was one of those things that just kept rumbling around in my head.
So, I'm off to the city to buy some more supplies.  Need to work out some of the details.  

Buy for now, next week is going to be a super busy week for me, so I probably won't post anything.  

Have a safe and fun weekend.  

Love ya

From the Craft Room

The beginning

The inspiration

The results

Lettering is not my thing and you can tell that in the close up picture,  
which I did not post (hehehe)
I am going to hang it with ribbon but I can't attach that yet due to the room it will be hanging in, I need to be there to measure just how much ribbon it will need.

Quick Craft

I didn't think to take before pictures, but this started with the notebook already covered in the damask print fabric.  I covered with paper and ribbons and then glued on the cross.

And then put on a little finish on the inside.

it's all in the details, darling.

Stinkin' cute. :)
