I married for 17 years to a wonderful husband who has supported me ever since i have been going blind and deaf. He has been at my side at the start. He helps me with my colors as i do have trouble with colors so i ask him alot which colors go together.We take care of each other as it should.

We made these 2 christmas pins out of craft foam. It is so easy for kids to do. You can use the peel and foam and don't have to use glue if you are afraid of little ones and glue. These are quick to make and you can pin backings or magnets and have a quick presents for little ones to give out for everyone. We made a bunch of these in pins.

This christmas was sooooooooooo easy to make. I made this with my little neice and nephew. My nephew is going into kindergarden this year and my neice isn't in school yet. This is so easy for younger kids to do. It is made from toilet paper rolls, or you can can use paper towels rolls also. They need to be cut into 1 inch lengths, then painted green and glued as you see. Green tissue paper is wadded up and glued inside, then glue the sequins on as shown. Before wadding up the tissue paper put a corded hanger in the very top. I forgot that part. :) This a very easy and fun for the kids to do. My neice and nephew and nephew had a blast doing this.

I made this angel bell for my twin sister Mary. My younger sister Kymm and i made some of these one day. She made a couple for her kids and I made a couple so i could mail one off to my twin. :) I know she will LOVE it. :) She use to collect it at one point.

This is some of my air-dry clay that I did. It is the second time that i did it. I think it is alot better then the first time I did which didn't turn out so good but it is ok with me. As I get better with it it will look alot better. I need to work with it more so i can add it to my scrapbooking and rubberstamping.
