Lotsa Stuff...

I am still on a quest to use the stacks of papers, bins of gems, tubs of rubber stamps.  On January 1, 2015 I will wander back into stacks of fabrics and begin sewing again on quilts for the Homeless Veterans that live in the forests of cold Northern Arizona.  I am proud to donate greeting cards to The First Families of Arizona of which I am a proud member.   Below you will see some of the 60 cards I completed.  The First Families of AZ are members whose forefathers came to Arizona before Statehood (February 14, 1912.)  My mother, her parents and 4 brothers arrived in Phoenix in 1909 when Mother was about 6 months old.  









I love to buy the little colored note pads at the Dollar Store and encase them in pretty little folded covers.  Here are a few.


 I made a LOT of Christmas cards as I do each year...some for my son and daughter in law, and some for me.  Below is a giant card for a high school friend, and a little sign that says "persevere".... She told me she needed reminding now and then so I helped out with a sign to hang.
 Christmas is nearly here, my friends.  Have a Merry one. And thanks for stopping by.
