Well, another week has gone by and I have accomplished very little. Grand baby doing great. She is 3 weeks old today. Mom and Dad are doing great, also. My little one has gone with one of his buddies for the weekend out of state to visit the little boys dad. Too quiet around here already. Usually this time on Friday night is high school football and a house full of little 11 y/o boys getting ready to go to the game. Oldest son is also great. He came by last night and ate with us. I am truly blessed!!
The above pic is of a project I did today. I have been wanting to put a scripture on canvas with one of my crosses, but I do not letter good. I ran across the Mod Podge web site the other day and decided to try using it to put letters cut out of scrapbook paper on the canvas. It really turned out nice. Dawn, if you are reading this, it works!!! I cut the letters out with my Sizzix and glued them on the painted canvas first. Then I painted the cross and the background. After all had dried, I used the Mod Podge to coat the entire pic. Really was not very hard. Does take a little while for the drying of the paint, but the end result is worth the wait.
I hope ya'll have lots of fun plans for the weekend. I plan on using this time to be creative and when I am not creating to be watching college football. My old stopping grounds, Mississippi State University plays Florida tomorrow. Could be bad, but let's hope for the best. Be safe, healthy, and happy. Pray for our soldiers and their families. Smile and laugh, lots. Hug those you love, and God bless ya'll!!

Everyone is doing great. The baby had some issues with some of her labs and had to go to the hospital everyday for a stick, but that resolved yesterday. Mom and dad are settling in really well to parenthood. They are so cute together. I don't know who coos and oohs the most--her or them. That little girl never leaves her house without a bow and dressed to the max!! These pics are of a bib and burp pad I made her. The flower is made out of ric rac and ribbon, all scraps I had at the house, and I had to put the ruffle on the burp pad. It just did not look right without it. It is sewn on a cloth diaper, you can't see the edges because I turned them under for the pic.
