Here is a puzzle swap I am in! MINE is home now, finished.....the burgandy/pink one! Great fun right? The others I have worked on still have pieces to be worked on except for the person I send to, which is now complete also! The greenish one above! Most had themes, mine was Numbers and wings, and the ochre/brown one is ABC using words that begin with A B or C for the main idea of the piece, the other teal one is vintage children....and so I think they came out great! This was a fun swap! The puzzles are 5x7 total size! Little mini collaged works of art! :0)

More glorious quilts from the Chicago quilt show! Click on these and look at them closely. There was such variety and such beauty, I could have stayed there much longer! I will be sharing a few posts more and then I will move on from this, but after this show, I am always full of joy and want to share some of what I got to see! I wish everyone could see a show like this! Quilts that are funky, meaningful, fun and beautiful! :0)

Just so special! And then the little boy sitting on the bridge and the gorgeous cat and fish! CLICK on the pictures to enlarge! They are worth it!

Go take a look and then sit down and give it a try! I used an exacto knife, and some plastic sheeting that I had here from a school binder! Be sure and share if you create anything! :0)

Amber and I made a cake yesterday!
The recipe can be found here:
Be sure to grease the pan well, as the cake does not like to pop right out! AND we were afraid to over marble, but just go crazy! It will come out fine! It tastes great and is NOT overly sweet at all! Pretty though for sure! Happy Moanday! :0)

Mine are very plain compared, but I was just piddling around! I think this is a neat thing, and if I had more time.....I would do something more detailed and realistic! Just fun! I made these cards from the cardstock that I sprayed the stencils onto to! :0) The backgrounds are bleached and I did some stamping too! Enjoy!
