I took a piece of white cotton/poly fabric and spray tacked it with 505 spray and fix, a temporary fabric adhesive, onto white bond paper. Then trimmed the edges carefully to fit the exact edge of the 8 1/2 x 11 paper. Placed it into my ink jet printer. Said a quick prayer that it would not jam up and hit the print button.
I pressed it and sprayed it carefully (misting it) with a few layers of scotch guard hoping it would not bleed.
It was ready to be stitiched down along with fussy cut and collaged fabrics, ribbons, rhinestones, pearls and even Glam-Ma's flowers. So there ya go!
It was a beautiful day,
in an amazing setting,
with good food
and great friends

What my Dingy said to my Ringy today! I have now come to the pinnacle of my life as a mother. My contact with my children is no longer face to face. It is now ear to ear. I find myself forever amazed and somewhat amused by the messages that are left for me. Most of the time I don't even know how to respond. I've decided to randomly post these. Sharing with you for your amusement, while I in turn journal them for mine!
"I fell off a bridge into a ditch yesterday"
"Caseys coming by to pick up my fat suit and chicken costume"
"I quit my job, dropped my classes and I'm moving to LA in two weeks"
"I'm going to eat my ice cream and make my butt bigger because nobody loves me"
(These are true and real statements. No names or places have been changed to protect the innocent.)

Well, "Glam Ma" is quite creative and has been very busy moving her bejeweled fingers to create crocheted bouquets.
And since I can't convince her to start blogging herself and selling her work on Etsy, I have been the fortunate recipient of a variety of flowers that arrive at my house in small plastic "ziplock" bags.
So I've been finding homes for these colorful jewels.
When I visited Sammy this last month I was able to play on her "felting" machine....Oh My Gosh...if you haven't tried one of these yet you must! There is so much possibility for creating amazing surface design with these machines.
felting, applique, machine stitching, sharpie graffiti, and "Glam Ma's" flower bling!
Labor day, I will be drawing a name from the comments beginning with post #95.
