This year I will place a new banner across my new "old" window displayed on my fireplace hearth, for each of the holidays. I put this up before Christmas and found these wonderfu llittle clips to hold the beaded swag in the corners. I made it so that I can just tie on the different saying to the beaded rope. Here is my new one for Valentine's Day.
I printed this from the pinterest and put it isn a frame to add to my Valentine magic. Finding an old piece of wood out on a desert outing, makes the perfect vintage sign. I enjoyed creating this sign, that will go here during all the seasons.
I did not make thisk but it will remain up all year long. It was given to me,
and I sure love glitter of all kinds and anything that says the word Paris on it!
Help! I am needing help with blogger Adsense. Does anyone out there know how to get the adsense to actually put ads onto your blog, and start making that work. I have added it to my new blog and can't figure it out. Oh and by the way I have started a new blog. Hope to be getting it in full swing soon, so I can turn it into something fabulous. Check it out by clicking on my new picture on my sidebar here. It is called Michele's likes and favorites. Come see what I have already posted.
I also have noticed, even with myself that everyone seems to be drifting from their blogging. I am wondering with smart phones, pinterest and facebook posting, has this changed? I am going to work on my blogs more faithfully, and visit other blogs as well, become followers and try to get into it again. I always got so much enjoyment out of blogging. I miss that, do you? I miss the good friends I had made through blogging, swapping and giveaways.
I am a Mother of 8, grandmother of almost 27 wonderful little people. Married to a wonderful man for 38 years. I am a published scrapbooker, have decorated wedding cakes, made wedding dresses, had a wedding business, taught baton twirling lessons to girls for almost 40 years, and love to decorate my home inexpensively. I have always been a 'make-due' sort of person. I love dishes, teacups, teapots, and have to be creating something everyday. I love to listen to beautiful uplifting music and watch Masterpiece Theatre and Jane Austen movies while I scrap, craft or sew. I have become addicted to quilting, and dream about quilt blocks now. I am still working on getting better at this art form. I believe that Creating things with your hands is a good outlet and keeps your mind alert, and has a way of helping one lose all the cares of the day and world, right in my own little studio. Therefore I will never become a digital scrapbooker. I think that those who do digital turn out some beautiful pieces of art and lovely layouts, but for me I need to cut and paste by hand!
