New Layouts!

I have some Christmas LOs that I worked on recently.

Karen Foster Designs paper, K & Company embellies, & paper from my stash.

Paper from my stash, white doily, embellies.

Here is a picture of the tank top size 2x that I crocheted, but I think it's more of a 3x!

I will have more tomorrow!

Discount on

I am having a 20% discount on all my products on  My shop is Cropperhopperstuff.  Please use the  coupon code GRDOPNG when making your purchase.

I am currently working on a crocheted purse with cables and bobbles.  I just finished a pumpkin potholder.  I was supposed to go scrapbooking today, but I wasn't up to it. 

I recently purchase the Lemon Flower Stack paper pack from DCWV.  I love the yellows and green.  I also love the glitter!  I felt like buying something to represent spring.

I learned how to make my own binding for a small scrapbook, and I am putting together a Christmas album.  I like to use the miniature tree decorations for bling.  I get them off season at 90% off at Pat Cataan's.  Go to the back corner of the store, and that's where they usually keep them year round.  They will also add other seasonal items such as Valentine's Day to the pile throughout the year.

I just finished a scarf that I'm giving my mother for her birthday tomorrow.  I haven't finished the tank top yet, because I lost the instructions.  I'm thinking of modifying the bottom since I have most of it finished.  I am working on a tee-shirt (crochet).  I don't currently have anything on my needles, but I have recently purchased a tatting shuttle.  I want to learn how to use it. 

I will be attending the Knitter's Fantasy Festival in Youngstown, OH on April 10th or 12th.  I have to look up the date.  I won't be able to take any classes, but I am looking forward to buying quality yarns in bulk.  I also love the swap that they have.  I have to go through my stash to see what I can swap. 

I will try to post pics of my latest scrapping efforts.  Plus, I have a haul to show you.  I received a gift card for $20 to Pat Cataan's for my B-day (March 21st), and I shopped for 2 hours all by myself.  I rarely get the chance to go shopping without my dh.  I had so much fun browsing.  I will be experimenting with white canvas cloth during my next scrapping adventure.  I am supposed to go scrapping this Friday, but we will see how both I and my mother are feeling.  We both have fibromyalgia, and neither of us feels well presently. 

I am loving the new blog Stitch and Unwind!  I love the patterns and the contests that they are having.  When I reach 50 subscribers, I will have some candy to give away.  I haven't decided what yet, but it will be good.

That's it for now.  I hope that I can share some pics to go along with my blog tomorrow.
