Time has flown by so quickly

 Boy has life took several turns over the last two years and my scrapping suffered.  We took my mom into live with us and she passed away last September at 97 years young, she was ready to go to her heavenly home.  My last family member has been battling cancer and fighting a good fight.   It feels good to be getting back into my groove.

So Far Behind

I am so sorry I have been so horrible in keeping up with my blog.  In case you didn't know, I helped my mom sell her home and move in with us.  It has been a big adjustment for all of us but we are starting to get into a routine.

Here are some of my projects that have recently been completed.

May-September cards for Stick it Down Blog.

Easter Canvas

Today I am sharing a canvas I made for Easter. This is so fun and easy, what a great time you could have with your kids or grandkids making these.

I started with a blank canvas and painted it. I used white with a drop of brown paint and just painted on the canvas.

Once it was dry I got my twine. I used two different colors, I used wheat twine as well as Solid Brown twine . I started winding it from top to bottom and stopped when I thought I had enough, for me that was 20 times.

Next I went across the twine I just wound and again I went around 20 times.

 Next to tie it all together I just wound the twine around the center.

I added a metal flower to the center and cut out the verse from vinyl using my Silhouette.

Thank you for stopping by and I hope you will give this a try. Remember to use your imagination and I can't wait to see what you create.
