Memorial Day Hats Off To You!

As we celebrate this important Memorial Day holiday let us take a moment to remember all of our servicemen and woman, their families and the sacrifices made for Our Freedom for this wonderful country of ours. Our Hats are off to you!! Sharing one my favorite pic's of the wonderful Sailor who stole my heart so many years ago and still holds it today.  I'll be linking up with Etsy Cottage Craft Room with this holiday pocket that is from a banner I started awhile back (WIP) and will eventually finish as it is on my UFO list, we all have those:) Projects that you start and need finishing. Have a fun filled day!

I haven't had a chance to do a post this week and thought I would share with you the latest Swap I participated in. This one was so much fun especially if you are a Downton Abbey fan! Are you?? This Swap was hosted by  Terri of Artful Affirmations  and was a big success, and we all had a great creative time and I hope Terri holds one again, maybe for the third Season of Downton Abbey.

Journal Fun Birthday Gift

I recently mailed a birthday gift for my dear friend and she just loved it. I thought I would share this with you. Just a little something easy to do and a lot of fun. I started with an arch and layered luncheon paper napkins for my images for the arch, inked the edges and then applied sheet music, a coffee stained doily, some crinkled seam binding, a vintage earring and millinery flowers from an old hat. This was my latest  bit of fun!
