Altered Letter S

I know I'm way behind in altering letters. Here is my first go with that. I purchased this letter at Michaels at least 6 months ago and put it aside. I finally pulled it out and this is what I came up with.

I am hoping that my creative mojo is finally finding its way back home.

Paper: Basic Grey
Misc: Acrylic clock & wings - 7gypsies, Heidi Swapp, Making Memories, Misc. ribbons.


  1. That is so cute and I love the clip so you can change the photo. I am guily of this too. I bought letters before Christmas that I planned on giving as gifts...maybe if I start now I can get them done by this Christmas!


  3. Very nice job! I think your mojo is back!


  4. How sweet! I love the clock on there too.


  5. love this! what a super cute idea!

  6. I'd say you have your mojo back, this is GREAT!! I also have letters for my sons room that I bought probably 12 months ago...never think to pull them out and work on them. Maybe this weekend...thanks for the inspiration!

  7. Too cute!!! I love the clip to hold a photo and the fun embellies you put on it. I'd say your mojo is doing great!

  8. very sweet, love it especially the little photo clipped on, need one of these for my newly decorated craft room!

  9. Very pretty--I love it! I did a set for Christmas, but I want a set for my craft room. Too fun :)

Guess who is Sewing...

Look what I made!!! I have not done anything creative in a very long time. Don't ask me what made me decide to give sewing a go again because I have no idea. The pattern for this bag is from Alicia Paulson and is called Jane Market Bag, you can find it on her website for only $6. It was so easy to follow the instructions. I would definitely recommend that you have a larger cutting surface and ruler to make it easier to cut the pieces out. My little 12x12 cutting surface and 6x13 clear ruler made cutting the pieces slightly difficult but not impossible.

Don't you just love the red fabric! I purchased the fabric at JoAnn Fabrics a couple of years ago to make an apron and since I had some left over thought I would use it for my first bag. The pattern calls for the use of 4 different fabrics but I decided to just use the 3. The inside of the bag is lined with the same black and white check fabric I used on the handles. These are so cute & are a great size so I will definitely …

Holy...Hot Flash... Batman!!!

It appears that I am definitely in menopause at least according to my recent blood test. I've been going through perimenopause for the last several years. You know hot flashes, night sweats and crazy cycles, etc. In the past twelve months I've only had 2 periods and the hot flashes have been worse than ever!

Life On An Even Keel...

On An Even Keel is an idiom that means - calm and not likely to change suddenly, balanced. This is how I want my life to be. It use to be this way 15 years ago and I'm not sure exactly what happened to change that position. Everything about my life feels completely out of balance & so crazy and I cannot take it any more! Some way, some how we have got to turn things back around and get on an even keel again!!! 

My plan for 2011 is to find that balanced and calm life again. I am working on cleaning out and getting rid of stuff. Only keeping what means something to us. I want to get started working on decorating our house and turning it into a HOME and not just a house. And I want to get our finances in a better place. As always I am open to any suggestions anyone may have to assist in this change.
