My Grandmother had a son in "each" branch of the service-- and fed any service man --her sons sent to her house!! My husband has many --in his family-- that have served-- and my brother was a Marine etcetcetc so Yes Memorial Day --has a lot of meaning ! I am not a fan of WAR but I am a fan of those that keep the peace!! They are my heros!!!

I recently came across this pix of a pin I had made for a swap--- Not my first or last swap that went awry-----Like sending it out into space-with no return and no replies---- At least it was just a pin.. One swap-- that sort of blew me away -- was one --I not only put a lot into -- but had a "lot" of special things included--for my partner--- who had corresponded-- before the swap---- but once I sent my part --My partner just disappeared!! I wrote and asked the hostess " what happened?" andall she said is-- Guess we just have to deal with it--- some people are so rude!! Luckily--I had ARIES Parents --who lived up to their astrological sign--and never let anyone (or anything) to get them down---TY /M&D------SO I keep on Swapping -- and needless to say--- have met the nicest people and gotten the best swaps-- Have faith --- Still swap!!

I have always been fascinated with "WINGS"!! My Grandmother use to tell me that my shoulder blades were (enclosed) wingsIf I ever thot of having a tatoo --It would have to be something like this---- I think a henna one is even better--I am not a great fan of pain!!!--And speaking of pain.. I finished my Paris Chic labels today-- to add my charms to-- Gathered them up to put away for tomorrow's finishing touches-- and they stuck together---Before you tell me hihi my bad---they had been sitting out all day to dry!!-----It must be more humid out than I thot--So NO pixs yet of the charm swap!! I WILL GET IT DONE I WILL!!!!!!

You saw my crafting "SPACE"??? ----in my room-- you would say---- I live in a circus!!!hi-hi--- Anyway--You would also know why I do / what I do/ to feed my craft needs---I would dearly love to buy "stamps"--- But that would bring truth to my husband's words --- that as soon as I equip myself for a new craft--- I am on to the next--- and not only can we afford ---only so much ---but there is simply no room to store these things-- (and if --we finally get to bring up my BOXES of craft supplies from Illinois --that is now in storage there -----wellllllll----So I surfed the NET --( where there is a WILL-- there is a WAY--right!?!?!)and found all these marvelous images -- and cut them out --and pasted them together and put them in my copier and Voila--I had something to mod podge onto my blank ATCs--- for the PAPER PANTRY'S --May (circus theme) atc swap-- Not selling them--Not saying they are mine-- Just sort of advertising the circus--SO I think it was a safe thing????Usually I draw up my own-- but I found--- I cant do --many--- of the-- same-- thing---I give each a different twist-- soooooo I had to find a way to do--- Many of the Same---Anyway-- I have a start ------
