Crochet/semi felted four leaf clover

I have gotten into crocheting again after many years. I crocheted a four leaf clover for 4-H for my sister as my niece and nephew and brother in law are in it. I tried to felt it and it didn’t quite felt all the way the way that I wanted it to. I made it using Peruvian wool and a wool/ alpaca blend.HPIM1279

Stinky left foot?

Today my boss had surgery on his right foot. We had been picking on him telling him that his left foot was stinky so this is what I came up with.I found some brads that I glittered and flocked. I found a bunch of stickers, some ribbon, A sheet of Vellum and foot stamp. All the brads and the stamping and the stickers were done with only the right foot. I also found a foot pumice stone in the shape of a foot with the help of my sister:)!

I am an enabler!

My nieces seem to like playing with my scrapbooking stuff! Now my other niece is into it.

I got up at 3am to go to black Friday Wal-mart! My sister went with me and she hadn't been to bed yet. We got there and the line was zigzag down the side of the building and up the side of the parking lot and around the front of the building too! We started just at the end of the building. They started letting people in a few at a time at about 4 am. You could get your items but nothing could be rung up til 5am. They then had all the registers open. I only went for my mother as she is in Lancaster PA to pick up my niece's Christmas present that she knows about. She wanted a CRICUT expression electronic cutting machine like I have. The deal was one that you didn't want to pass up. My niece and my other sister are in Canada visiting family there so they couldn't go either. I came back home and got about three hours of sleep maybe before waking back up then my niece calls me from Canada to see if I got it! She is all excited! She doesn't get it til Christmas though! Thank you Denise for keeping me company

Retirement pages

The librarian that is in the school system where my mother works and that we have had in school is retiring in December. Someone is creating a memory type book for her and having everyone do a page or two to put in it.  We have gone to NYC several times over the years with her as they have always planned bus trips for day trips every year. My mother, myself, my two sisters and my two nieces all wanted to do these pages so I created and everyone has signed. I used buttons from Jessie James, smooch ink in pumpkin, gold lame, and moonlight, Dusty concord distress ink, Bobbin brand ribbon, little jewel things, and a pattern for the lady liberty from  that I cut with SCAL. The pictures that were used were taken in NYC also.My niece Tiffany helped me to write something up for it.
