A Job I Did

This is an album that I did the cover of for a man I have never met, he came into the boutique that I do projects for and asked if I could do this for him. This was a tough job for me to think of doing but an easy one to do. His wife is dying at any time now, and he wanted to do an album for her for Christmas, he wanted her picture, which he emialed to me, her favorite color was red, and did not want any
foofoo on it, rather plain. Why this was hard for me is that my hubby dies 2 months ago and his favorite color was red. This is what I did and he was very pleased, he said excately what he wanted, I just wanted to share this, I have never met these
people and probably never will but somehow I feel a connection to tham.

New Projects

My Granddaughter made the next two projects, this one is a chaulk message board using a picture frame, painting the glass with spray chaulkboard paint and embellishing the frame, very nice project Trisha

This is a magnet board she made from a cookie sheet, she also made the magnets by
cutting paper and glueing to the back of a bauble and adding a magnet. Very useful

Altered Briefcase

I took my Dad's old briefcase and altered it, I did not do the outside because I
wanted it left with the old brown leather on the outside, I only did the inside and put some of my pink flowers in it, you could use it for any type of scrapbooking products or projects in it. At least now I am using it instead of letting it sit
In my closed where it has been for 45 years.

My beloved husband

I feel the need to post this, My dearly beloved husband passed away on Oct 14, He went very peacefully and he is in heaven now with my parents, his parents, and his favorite dog, bud. It is so hard for me, and my family, and all his friends,but he is happy and no pain. He was the love of my life. We met when we were teenagers and that was it, we had a beautiful life together having 2 daughters, Diane and Robin, 1 son, Darrel,
a beautiful granddaughter, Trisha, a wonderful grandson, Rick, and the cutest great grandson, Mason. We had a very small family but a mighty great family, we are all feeling the pain of his passing, but soon we will be smiling and laughing and saying, remember when we did this and that. He will never be forgotton by anyone.He was one of the most caring , trusting, hard working, truthful, man anyone could have ever met. He will be in our hearts every minute of every day. I will miss him dearly but I will never forget him and life goes on. Rest in peace Rex, I love you every minute of every day and I will be with you again one day, I will think of you every day, you were my rock, my life, my love and nothing will every change. Love you so much.

I have been working on this for several weeks and I think it is finished, maybe I need to add a little something more, i will think on this. I found this little unfinished shelf at a thrift store and thought I could do something with it. I love working on little projects like this so here is what I have done not sure if it is finished or not.

This is the cigar box I altered, it was so much fun to do, I may have overdone the flowers but I think you can do whatever you like, after all it is yours and I hope the person this is intended for likes it.

This is the inside of the cigar box that I altered
