Special Votive Holders

I made these to decorate the tables at a BBQ tonight. The BBQ is to thank our city workers, firemen, emts and police.

I love making these things.

A little tatting

I have been doing a little tatting. I signed up for the tatting design class, but don't want to show that here.

I also am working on some of Linda Davis's flowers for a spray. Will show that when it is finished.

I saw the several tatters had made Vicki Clarke's Ruffled Heart. I just had to try it and got addicted. Not sure what I will do with them, but can't seem to stop making them.

Funny Card to Share

A kid my husband works with, had a 4 wheeler accident. Seems this is his 3rd 4 wheeler accident.

I decided to make him a get better card. I had never made one of the cards, but found the instructions on the web. I chose this kind, because of the animation with the 4 wheeler rolling over. We live in wheat country, so found a picture of this for the background. I then found a picture of a guy, that I added to the picture to make it look like someone upside down in the wheat field. I then found a picture of a 4 wheeler. I can't believe how easy and fun this kind of card is.
Here is a picture of the finished card and the inside.

Wedding Done

The Bride & Groom

Well it was a beautiful wedding. One of the hottest days of the year, here.

Just a few days before the wedding, my daughter still had not picked out a song to walk down the isle with. She had one picked out when it was suppose to be her biological father (aka sperm doner my Xhusband). But 2 weeks before the wedding he called her and told her he would not be coming. So now, it would be my husband, the father that had raised her. I was listening to the radio as I worked and a new song by Keith Urban came on. I got tearing eyed, and goose bumps. I found the song on You Tube, and played it for my daughter. Perfect she said. So now to purchase the song. So now my son taught me about purchasing songs online. If you have not heard Keith Urbans "Only You Can Love Me This Way", go to
My dad is a pastor, and my daughter wanted her papa to officiate her wedding. Everyone had a hard time keeping dry eyes.

It took me a few days to recover from the wedding. It drains ya. The following week, we animal sat as the kids went on their honeymoon. Then last Sunday, I spent the whole day working with a program called "Windows Movie Maker". I never had messed with it before. I took pictures from the wedding day (getting ready, wedding and reception) and added captions and animation and made it into a movie. I was able to bring in the songs from their wedding to play during the movie. When you burn it to a DVD, it is just like a DVD you have purchased. You put it in the DVD and the screen comes up with a picture and the movie title, play button and selection button. What fun.

Here are some pictures.
