Yoga Inspired Note Cards

September 14, 2014

Yes, the Redskins won today!  But it came with a price, our quarterback, RG III got hurt with a dislocated ankle and it does not look very good ...... all of Washington will be hoping he can come back before the season is over - but in the mean time Kirk Cousins came in and did an awesome job giving us a win and hope for the season with a possibility that RG III may be out for the season.

We are huge Skins fans ...... I mean huge fans & Sundays are all football in our house ........ we miss having Katryna here States side watching the games at SJU, hopefully she will have can stream it on her laptop or find a restaurant in Florence that shows the games catering to all the American students.

RG III - here's hoping for a speedy recovery!


Yoga inspired note cards - here are a few pictures of what I made for Sage Yoga Studio - tell me what you think!




Thank you Heidi.  These were lots of fun to make and package, since they are so different from the birthday & thank you cards I usually make .......... my favorite is the Tree of Life card.

Next project - holiday cards and gifts!

Thanks for stopping in.  Until next time ................

Labor Day

September 2, 2014

So, Labor Day has come and gone & another summer with lots of memories!  We spent the long weekend at the lake with Dinesh having four of his buddies over.  The kids had a blast tubing and swimming, and Mr. Craft and I actually took it easy most of the time instead of the usual, which is always finding stuff to fix around the house.  We also skyped with Katryna - it was so good to see her.  She has certainly settled in well and was looking forward to starting her classes on yesterday. We text each other everyday just so we know she is ok .......... yeah, I know that sounds crazy, but that little rule was established by Mr. Craft before she left.  Either way, it is great to hear from her every day.


On Sunday I decided to give an old bench a new look.  I picked it up at a flea market a few years back as I loved how the head board and foot board of an old twin bed was used to make the bench - just love it.  So after looking at a bunch of colors, I decided to give it a really pretty yellow .......  couldn't quite finish it as I wanted to use an accent color on the round spools against the back - will finish it when we go back up to the lake in two weeks.

Here's a picture of the bench prior to painting - I meant to take a picture half way through painting, but was so into it...... I guess that didn't happen.  Will post some before and after pictures once it's done.


Also this weekend I pulled out a dresser I had bought at a flea market about a year ago - the big question with this is, what color should I paint it - and should I use Chalk Paint or Miss Mustard Seed Paint.


I have a few other pieces that are sitting in the garage which I should pull out and start working on - hopefully between work & my card making I can start on the dresser sometime soon - would love to find a great home for it once I paint it.

Will be back soon - until next time ...........
