Sittin Spinnin

I thought maybe I should surface for a bit. I really am keeping busy actually I'm barely keeping my head above water, but then that's not really anything different :)

I have been making my Daughter a Wedding Plan Journal. She and Joe will be marring in November, in Charleston SC. That is a very looooong way from here. So I decided that A little planner journal might be a way for us stay a bit connected. Besides being the first born she is also my only daughter so this is a special time for both of us. Here is a picture of the journal almost finished just needs the fine tuning. I'll post the detailed tour tomorrow. I'm rather pleased how it came together :)

I also have been putting the final touches on the Puppy Love Valentine swap Karla is having. I have to get those to the courier tomorrow morning so they will go out Monday otherwise they will never get there in time

I also have been altering this rather nasty looking cupboard for my little art corner. It was one of those press board with fake wood grain paper jobbies. So I'm doing a bit of decoupage and froofing.

And finally.... this dress maker form I bought on eBay made it down here it's only out of the 50s and has always been in a box so she hasn't any character marks yet :( She's a little bit of a thing and will answer to the name of Annalisa :) However she needs to get a bit of age on her.
Okay I had pictures of these for you but Blogspot has put it's foot down and I can't get them on here tonight. Maybe tomorrow

So many projects and sooooooo little time :)

It's time for this little Bloglandian to say good night. Shhhhh LW bless his little heart has fallen asleep in the big reading chair. Have a most audacious day or evening depending on where in the world you are ;)
