Comic Con

Hello All!

This year I got to attend Comic Con St Louis. I went with a girl from work on Saturday and Sunday. We met up with my Daughter and her boyfriend on Saturday. Some of the highlights of the weekend were the panels with Adam West and Burt Ward on Saturday, the Costume Contest, and the Firefly panel on Sunday. I have just a few photos below but have links in the sidebar to pages of more photo. I hope you enjoy them.

Thanks for stopping by

Hello All!

I hope you don't mind all of the photo heavy posts. I took close to 900 photos while in France, many of them are of the items we saw at museums so I only posted my most favorite. I have one more picture heavy post to come. The weekend of April 4-6 was Comic Con St Louis. I went with Tiff, Craig and Jenny on Saturday and Jenny and I went back on Sunday. So I will be putting up pics of some of the fun costumes I saw. If any of you are fans of Firefly the tv series, I went as a Steampunk version of Kaylee and Jenny dressed up as Jayne. After the Comic Con post I will get back to craft posting. I should have plenty to share as I am prepping for an up coming Craft Fair. The Florissant Valley of Flowers is May 2nd and 3rd, If you are in the area I would love to see you.

Thanks for stopping by,
See You Soon

I'm Back

So Sorry for the long Hiatus. 

Here are some of the things that have been going on the past month. Added onto my regular 40 hours at work, which does take away a lot of online and craft time, lol. 

At the end of February I was working on my Going Green program, even though it is a program that I present for work, I do most of my prep at home. And all my search for materials is done on my own time. For March we turned Readers Digest condensed books, the older ones from the 50's and 60's that have the pretty covers, into purses. 

The first week of March was spent prepping for my trip to France, my daughter and I went over so to visit my sister and her family. About half of my suitcase was filled with stuff to take over for them, things they can't find in France. 

Darn it is so easy to get sidetracked, 
                                             went looking for the list and got sucked into facebook : )

Found it, I only got half the list Tiff had the other. As you can see it is all regular everyday items that just can't be found over there. 

Popcorn cheese powder 
Mint extract 
Crest glide dental floss 
5 (brand) gum in Rain flavor (green) (2 'bags' of 3 packs)  
Hormel pepperoni (one regular, one turkey if possible) [gilli couldnt find it at target, found it at dierbergs] 
Beef jerky (2 jack links bag) 
Maybelline Age Rewind concealer (2) in shade 'fair' or 'light' 
Black ankle socks for gilli 
Generic alkaseltzer tablets
Doritos Cool ranch bag  
Root beer extract 

Of course after the trip I was jet lagged for a week and didn't accomplish anything but going to work. And then I had to prep for my Going Green March program which was Yo-Yo necklaces. I did make kits for everyone to create my sample necklace but then had a large fabric stash for them if they did not like the fabrics I had chosen. 

I will post my projects soon and lots of pictures of France!
