Sewing-- Amy Butler Patterns

Here are a few pics of the projects I've been making at Dragonfly with the Amy Butler's "In Stitches" book. The projects are great and I'm having a blast thinking of Christmas presents. I love the magazine/bedside organizer. You just tuck it between your mattress and it keeps everything handy!!. The polka dot one is some fabric from Hobby Lobby and for a friend's birthday. The sewing bag is actually a Butterick pattern using Lorelei fabric and some stuff from Hancocks. Amy Butler fabric is really the most beautiful... Here is a link to a great site Quilters Buzz with pics of Amy's new fabric line

Digital Scrapbooking Obssession

Okay, I'm totally obssessed with Photoshop Elements 6. Best program I've EVER used. I've been downloading mostly free stuff off the internet to make scrapbook pages. I want to design my own, but right now there is more free stuff than you can imagine. Here's a simple page I made messing around this morning. Page kit is from http://sweetshoppedesigns.com/ . I know it needs some work but I just love this kit.

Get out of that Pit!!

I've been reading Get out of that Pit by Beth Moore to help understand what's going on in my life and to get myself going again. This book relates to me so much because I feel like Job. Bad things just keep happening. I'm feeling sorry for myself and asking how I could have ended up at 48 y rs old with no job, no husband, no money and no self esteem. Anyway, here's the link to get a copy for yourself. BTW, this really spoke to me yesterday>>> Job 33:29-30
God does all these things to a man-
twice, even three times-
to turn back his soul from the pit,
that the light of life may shine on him.

Stampin' Again

I'm getting settled into my house and desperately looking for work. It seems there's not much available right now except telemarketing jobs for $9 hour which is ridiculous. I'm getting my stamping stuff together and am going to have my first workshop in my new home September 16th. I'm also trying to plan a World Card Making Day event to make cards for soldiers. My website is here . I made this card for a shoebox swap at my upline's house tonight. My new favorite set is used- Upsy Daisy.
