April ATC Swap

Here is my latest try with ATC's at Croppers Cottage we are having another monthly swap and the them was music.

For some reason when I thought about what to do for that a record player popped into my head. Then I had to figure out how to make it and this is what I came up with. I use 3 circle punches for the LP, a rectangle for the player base, the letter T from Quickutz Eliza skinnimini dies for the player arm, and some little crystals for the dials.

While making the turntable I kept having all these 70's songs pop into my head. So what do you think.

Paper - Bazzill, Regular printer paper.
Misc - Quickutz Eliza alphabet, crystals, pop dots, gel pen, circle punches.


  1. This is adorable. I love how you used the "t" for the needle arm. You are just to smart! I actually saw the arm first and it wasn't till the second or third look that I began to suspect it was a "t". Great job!

  2. How clever!!! I LOVE this ATC...sooo cute!! And perfect for the theme or any music lover!!!!

  8. Suzanne this is SO darn cute! I love how you made the album and the player and using the "t" was entirely too clever! I look forward to seeing it in real life!!! ;)

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.
