Button Tuesday

   Sunday Margi and I had a "playdate". I dusted off my stamping and card making supplies. Wow, It's been a while. My creative mojo had cobwebs!
   Margi gave me an early birthday present. The sweeeetest set of stamps! Button cards; yep, shut-up! Button cards! Yippee, That's right, Button cards.
  We played for hours and I just love this set of stamps. I left all my crap supplies out on a table in my family room and played most of the day on Monday. Happy Presidents' day to me! So, do you want to see what I created? TaDa!

    I stole borrowed the frame from Mr. Wonderful, he had Zippo lighters in it????? I stamped the cards with my B day present and mounted modern black glass buttons on each card. Sooo pretty.                               
Now I am off to stamp more cards. Happy hunting! ~Robin~

Button it up Tuesday!

    Yesterday was button study. I had missed the January meeting and I can't tell you how I missed this group of wonderful women!
     We mounted buttons on a picture of a flower arrangement. I left my camera at home so I didn't get a picture of each one but they were amazing. I finished mine at home this morning and here are the results:

Toto, we are not in Florida anymore! or there's no place like home!

We took an extended vacation in Florida and North Carolina. I say extended because I had booked a condo for 2 weeks, when we got there it was so nice that Mr. Wonderful and his mother conned talked me into taking another week. Mr. Wonderful and I were homesick after week 2!
    When we left Florida finally we stopped at Mr. Wonderful's sisters in North Carolina. His sister,Jane came with her son, daughter and grandson to visit. We had a wonderful visit! That little guy was adorable!
    We are all ready to leave the next morning and someone checks the weather forcast. Not good. So, we stay with Ted and Diane 3 more nights.Now if you are going to get stranded somewhere, Diane's is the place to be. She has an amazing sewing studio behind her house and I just happened to have my sewing machine with me.I also had a bottle of wine and we soon discovered wine and sewing are not a good combination. When sewing under the influence a seam ripper is your best friend. We did talk and laugh. The wine only had a positive effect on that.
    We arrived at home on Thursday evening to find everything covered in ice. Why did we leave Florida? Oh yea, I was homesick! Someone should have told me to get over myself.

   We had a wonderful vacation, my mother-in-law got to go to Florida for her 88th birthday, and we got home safely. There's no place like home even if it is covered with ice!
