Loving my Paper Craft projects

I been having so much fun making some Halloween paper decorations.  I always so enjoyed finding and purchasing them . . . but after awhile I thought, maybe I can try making them instead, I seem to make everything else, but sort of felt not really creative when it came to paper art.

Anyways, I think I've finally had some success . . . take a peek, too cute for sure!

 I've bought craft paper forever, have a ton of it collecting . . . finally got to use it for something fun.

 Plenty of stickers too . . . always adding one or two to a greeting card, they're lots of fun.

 This Frankenstein one has a special meaning behind it  . . . when my kids were little I never wanted to put up anything with an evil look to it, didn't want to scare them.  I use to cover our front door with a "sweet" and "friendly" pic of Frankenstein . . . this one's a keeper. 

 Giving this one away for fun  . . . it's always good to share in the fun :O)

Creating Some Fun Stuff

I absolutely love butterflies . . . . can't seem to get enough of them.  Couple of months ago I bought one of those Jim Holtz assemblage clocks.  Went to Michael and bought some paper and stickers, some ribbon and tried my best to create something.  Haven't really done something like this in awhile . . . got to get back into it again, seem to be a little rusty :O)

 Shopping at Michaels, stickers and things . . .

 Attempting to put something together.  Jennifer my sweet friend gave me some beautiful butterfly stickers (3-D vellum style).  I wanted to use them for something special.

 The background is a pattern of shades of blue, beige and tan.  I added a "happy" button sticker along with two paper light blue flowers.  The ribbon I used was from Christmas last year, light nile green color, wired ribbon.  Super simple :O)

The season of my life right now is beautiful.  A butterfly to me represents "New Beginning".   I thought this saying was perfect!

Is it that time again . . . Fall :O)

Ok, already getting excited  . . . it's that time again Fall!  Started adding some touches of Fall around the Homestead.  I've already cross stitched a Halloween ornament which I will share in a post a little later.  Fall brings such wonderful memories of my children aka adult children when they were growing up.  As a Mother's view I don't think they ever grow up, sometimes so hard to let go too.  Wishing for grandchildren and still waiting . . . these kids are all career oriented for now.  Here's couple of pics, will post more later.  Blessings!

This time with PURPOSE

I've wanted for a while to create something special which would represent my relationship with Rexy.  Just completed a new cross stitch by Blackbird Designs called "Moonlight Visitor".  I decided to date it 2014 when Rexy and I came together.  The moth actually looks like a butterfly to me which represents NEW BEGINNINGS and the house represents LIFE, the tree represents GROWTH and the heart in the left hand corner represents LOVE . . . how appropriate could this one be for us :O)

 Need to find the perfect frame to put it in  . . . dark espresso color maybe, I think that might look pretty.  Tell me what you think?  Blessings :O)

p.s. Can't quite figure out what the dog would represent in our relationship . . . hmmm!

Praising God for all my joy . . .

Only God can give us true joy in our lives.  Since this man, Rexy came into my life . . . so many things have changed.  We both asked God to bring someone in to our lives and this was the outcome.  The power of prayer is amazing!  From the very beginning we prayer together over our relationship and still do . . . it's been the best thing ever.

 The pic above is Rexy and I having breakfast in San Juan Capistrano early one morning . . we love going out to breakfast.

We love to make dinners together, we'll decide what we want to eat and then go to the market, come home and cook it . . . yum yum!

This man is always surprising me too . . . my birthday cake, ice-cream included  . . LOL!

Spoils me too often  . . . but I absolutely love it!

So if you are single or widowed, or just alone, I highly suggest ask God to send someone into your life and you'll never regret it . . . best thing I ever did :O)  Blessings!
