The friendship poem

Here's the poem it didn't come out to clear with my post.
Thank you for the laughter, the good time we share.
Thanks for always listening & trying to be fair.
Thank you for your comfort when things are going bad.
Thank you for your shoulder to cry on when I'm sad.
This gift is a reminder that all my lifetime through,
I'll be thanking heaven for a special FRIEND like you!

Threads of Friendship

I always make some of these just to have on hand. I've changed the poem from friendship to Mom,Sister,Aunt etc. whatever I needed at the time..Just a spool of thread some pearls flowers anyway you want to decorate it..I've also used wooden spools and added yarn etc.when I didn't have a real spool of thread.. I printed the poem on my computer..TFL I enjoy reading your comments..

Wall Hanging of my Grand-daughters photo

I thought my grand daughters school picture came out so beautiful I had to make something special to put it in..I was inspired by RoseS915 on You Tube she made a 12x12 layout of her daughter that came out beautiful..So with that inspiration in mind I came out with this wall hanging, on the back I added a large 2 page tag for journaling..I also made the flowers, I used a push pin with a flower to hang it up.
Love to know what you think...TFL

What do you do with your old boots?

I really liked these boots(they were really OLD) until I bought another pair I liked better ;o) I altered the boot for a corner floor decoration or a door stop..I stuffed the boot with tissue paper, then put in a drinking glass and styrofoam, Which held my flower arrangement it can be changed whenever I want a different look..I glittered the heal, added fringe, pearls, laced in gold ribbon..I glued it on a mini stool I painted.. I really like the way it came out..Would love to know what you think..TFL

Mary at Cardz TV has another cool challenge making a card without using your cricut machine,

and crafting again so soon after..Bandage comes off this afternoon, stitches dissolve ;o)
My Halloween card was mostly from scraps I drew the pumpkin and ghost and the skeleton was cut up using what I needed..The Cupcake card was from DCWV Vintage College Stock..Thanks again Mary for having another fun challenge..Love all of your comments..

I've been looking for the popular wooden clothespin for awhile now with no luck..I came across a plastic one at Walmart and decided to decorate that one..After sanding and priming the plastic I was able to decorate it, using Graphic 45 papers, Tim Holtz Distress paints and inks..I also used the Storybook cart. to cut out the frame
made it double sided so I can put a picture on both sides..I used Jannaviles idea (She Has Great You Tube Videos) to make the mini album on the top of the clothespin..I am very happy with the way it came out..TFL
