Subway Art GIve Away and New things

I have a great Give Away going on starting today and ending Sunday evening @ 6:00p.m.
I did not make this one, but I found a few and thought I would offer this one as a give away.  These are such great fun things in your home, give as a gift, everyone loves one.  This one is all about Family Rules and things we should all be reminded to do daily! :) You get your name in the drawing one time each for the following:
1.  Leave me a comment
2. Become a follower (if you are not already)
3. Mentiont this give away on  your blog
Be sure to tell me which ones you have done.  I will draw the name next Sunday afternoon at 6 and list the winner here on the Blog.  Good Luck!!!

This is a sneak peak at some new things I am working on.  I will show you the rest this week.
Hope everyone has been doing great.  I have to tell you.. WOW having a kid in High School play a high school sport is an eye opener for me.  The daily time and games.. What was I complaining about before when he played Rec Soccer? Geez! He is having a great time and making some wonderful new friends and he is happy, so that is all that matters.
Also I went out Saturday night with some friends from High School, we danced, laughed and had a wonderful time.. before this night, I had considered doing a Zumba class, thought it would be fun and really how hard can dancing be?  Well let me tell ya! OUCH, I feel like I was in a car wreck, my sides and back are killing me! LOL..I have figured out why those girls are loosing so much weight and look great, dancing uses a TON Of muscles that when your 22 you don't notice! So this sore old woman is re-thinking Zumba :)  I'm staring to think I am just fine the way I am, and my love of Chocolate cake is alright!
Anyone else tried Zumba? What did you think?
 Don't forget to enter the Give away...
Have a great day!

Vintage Lace

Don't you just love old lace?  I simply can not pass it up and I try to put as much as I can with the things I sew.

I've done a few of these, this one is not mine, but Look how beautiful it is with the lace added to it

I love this idea of taking a piece and making it into a necklace. Clever idea and what a great use for your wedding dress in your closet.. 
I can't make enough of these, I love them.

And one day I will try this.. Beautiful. 
Hope everyone has been super busy and in great health.  I have a major strained back and I am in pain! I live on the heating pad and sitting at the computer for more than 10 minutes kills me.  I have been standing up to sew, and it actually is alright. Guess time will heal it. 
 I have a show this Friday for Ladies Night at Purcell Marian High School.. I am busy this week getting ready for that and hoping my back holds out! Not a good thing that I hurt it now when I have one show a month, plus the shop to keep up on, plus the kids school and sports! I'm starting to think that sleep is over rated and I will do plenty of that when I am old!
Well back to sewing and school meetings for the kids. Oh and THANK YOU for all the help with the glue, I found a cure and it is working perfectly! I love all you blog ladies and how we all help each other out! It's a never ending sea of Girlfriends all across the globe!
Have a great week!

Some jewelry help and Advice

OK all you crafty ladies out there I need some advice and help. 
A while ago I made a few of these:
My problem? I can't get them to stay on the little blank bracelet thingy.. I have tried E6000 glue and they pop off the next day.  Any adive?  I three sold, but I dont' want to just give them back only to have them pop right back off again.. Any help would be appreciated..

That brings me to my next topic.. Help.. I have had several people email me about things and ask how I did something or what method I used and I Always happily offer advice.  I don't understand the few I have emailed about this, only to send me back Nasty emails telling me to figure it out on my own.. Mean ladies!!!

So if any of my NICE Blogger Buddies know what I can do to make these stay on better, I would appreciate your help!

Back to my super busy Friday :)  Have a great weekend!!!
