Bubble Gum Candles

Hi Guys,

I wanted you guys to see my latest creations. I have made some candles in a line of names that are my own makings. As you can see by the caption title these here are called "Bubble Gum". I choose that name because when I was making the clay mixture it reminded me of bubble gum. I am going to make different flavors of candles and hopefully have them available for sale.. If you would be interested in any of them please send me an email or leave me your email addy in a comment. Thanks and I hope that you also enjoy the candle holders that I have made too.

Until next time,

Reading is Fundamental-RIF

Do you remember all the commercials that used to come on television and was told in our schools about RIF aka Reading is Fundamental? In honor of that special memory that just came flooding back to me, I would like to share with you a small part of my library of books. I hope that you enjoy them. Do you have a favorite book? A favorite genre? I can be a childhood book or an adult. Let me know. I will love to hear about it.. Can you tell that I love books?

I have a very special prize for a randomly picked person who leaves comments on my blog about this specific entry. I hope to see many entries.

Hello.. I know that I have not posted in a while, but I just wanted to show you a little of what I have been up to lately. I will be posting more tomorrow once I get the pics together. I had a blast making these and hope that you too enjoy them. I was going to post them earlier but since they were part of a swap and I have followers that were in the swap I didn't want to spoil it for them. Please let me know what you think..

Until tomorrow,

Latest Mini Find

Hello.. I just wanted to post a mini find that I found today. If any of you are Pink Panther/Peter Sellers fans this is might brighten your day.. I found an Inspector Clouseau television that lights up at my local Carlton Cards. They were on sale for 75% off and I got it for $5.00 plus tax. It really made it worth it for a possible upcoming project. I just had to share it with you guys.. Enjoy...

New Look to Blog

I have been debating about changing my blog background from day one when I started and I decided to change it.. I have been told that I will not be satisfied with my blog page until I find something that appeals to me. I have been looking for something for quite some time and I can't find anything that I have in my creative mind. I did however find this new background and was drawn to it a little more then the last one. I would however love to hear your opinion on the new background. I am torn between the two right now. LOL!!!

Bella Award from Doreen- Thank you!!

I would like to thank Doreen of for sending me this award. The funny thing about being new to blogging is not realizing how you sometimes over think things and make it more complicated than necessary. Finally after several attempts asking someone else how to get my award from someone else's blog page, I went straight to the source and she told me how to do it and finally it is here for everyone's viewing pleasure especially mine.. Thanks again Doreen.

Fairy House Stoves

I just worked on a project making a stove for a fairy house and I wanted to share it with everyone.. I worked on two versions - an old fashioned one with the pipe and a more modern version in my favorite colors. That would be the red and black one. LOL!! I hope that you all enjoy it and please feel free to post your comments..

After Easter Entry...Part 2

Here are some sweets that I call "Chocolate Delights".. After Easter dinner you have to have some sweets to make the food go down smoothly..LOL
Here is some of the goodies that was on the Easter dinner menu.. Fried chicken, tossed salad and rolls.. The trays were handmade by me.. There was more on the menue but I figure that I would pick out a few of the items.. I hope that everyone isn't drooling at the computer.. I am sorry if I made anyone hungry..

After Easter Entry....Part 1

I hope that everyone has had a blessed Easter. Momma was camera shy to take a picture yesterday for the blog, but she allowed a picture to be taken today.
She also let me take pictures of her two new Easter bonnets that I made for her to wear on Easter Sunday. She would love to know what you think of her hats.. Above is the back of her first hat and below is the front.. Handmade flowers by me...

This is the back of bonnet #2 and below is the front..

Good Afternoon,

I wanted everyone to see the window seat that I made in my Asian roombox that I am working on.. I did have some help from my sweetie getting the drawers to work.. LOL I made the windows in my room, the bamboo tree was a swap and so was the hanging ornament in the window. The geisha girl was a home/craft decorating store find and I thought that she was perfect for this room.. I have a bare wall on the left side that is crying out for a kimono. If anyone can make me one with red and black, I would appreciate it and I am willing to trade you something for it.. I am really proud of this roombox even though it is not finished.. If anyone has any ideas for me please feel free to leave me a comment.. I don't make asian foods and would love to make something to put on a table in this roombox.. I hope that everyone enjoys..

Until my next posting.. Mini Smooches

New McDonalds Toy

Well after a little trip to McDonald's to get a little something to eat and find out what the kids meal toy was. You know something that I might be able to use in a miniature setting someday (yeah, I can see some of you laughing..but I know you really know what I mean). I found the only female and human toy from the new Dreamworks movie Monsters vs Aliens "Ginormica". I think that she is perfect for using as a teenage girl and then you can cut the cars off her feet and use them for toys in a toy shop or another miniature setting.. Hurry, because as the only toy that can be really considered for a little girl you know that she is going to be the first to go and she is the first in the series too.. Hurry and run to your local McDonald's and get your toy too..

This is all for now, signing out...
