Rain, Rain go AWAY!

All the water is collecting under the house and surounding the house.About 2-3 inches deep.Except for right in front of the door and the place in which we pull up the car.The grass is like 10 inches high in some places.It's been so wet that I haven't been able to cut it.Come on warmer weather.At least it's not snowing here.

GOOD NEWS!


We got a Kinect.Elora has not been able to do much with this weather.Kinect Animals has kept her busy and gotten her energy out.Paul likes it,and Jas and Cinda.I haven't gotten to,yet.Actually I haven't said it was my turn,yet.But when I do YOU will know about it.Gonna have to go off to the store soon.Argh.And did I mention it's cold and wet?Be good to everyone.

Almost finished

Sorry to my LJ friends.So much to do that I cross posted.
Jas has wanted a wooden chest for several years.I couldn't afford one.Last week? I think, I found one for 8 dollars at our thrift shop.It had tempura paint poured on top,tacky to the touch.Parts of wall paper stuck to the inside and the latch broke.Looked like it had been beaten and left outside.After murphy's oil soap,a wire brush,2 types of sand paper,bruce wax stain for the top and a new latch I'm almost finished.I'm excited and worried.She knows that I've been working on something in a big wooden box that's been draped in my room.It's gotten to where the waiting is killing her and she loves it.She says it could even just be a box and she will happily take pictures of herself peeking out of it.So, yay.
I'm making Cin an N7 pin.I hope it comes out ok,too.
Cin and I are making Paul a storm trooper mask out of milk jugs.Here is where we got the directions
www.filthwizardry.com/2010/10/milk-jug-storm-trooper-helmet.html
And I want to make my mom some slippers to go with her pedi kit.All may not get done but I will be happy with what does.
Have a Holly Jolly Y'all

Ferndale Tractor Parade/2nd Largest living xmas tree in US

My youngest daughter loves the tractor parade.My middle girl only went cause her friend wanted to go with us.My oldest isn't into being out in the cold and rain.It was cold,wet and fun.Hot cocoa and family.This is the trophy for best float

I tried to get a pic of middle girlie with tree.It's the 2nd largest living Christmas tree in the U.S. Yahoo says so.But here's the problem:Cell phone photography and a really dark rural night.
All 3 girls(youngest,middle and middle's friend) were in front of the tree in this photo.Middle girle,Cin, hasn"t ever seen the tree.I took them up to the base so they could see that the bulbs are colored light bulbs.Like the kind you use in a lamp.She was amazed.I wanted to share that with her.I'm glad that I did.This was Sunday.Gosh it was fun.

More Teacher gifts

I made a few more ornaments as per the Teacher Gift Post 
I normally get all tied up inside about cutting up any book.These ornaments were made from a math text book that was going to be destroyed back in 95 by my daughters' school.They wanted it then it got water damage and I have been kind of hoarding it ever since.YEAH, I'm one of those people.Mine mine mine gimme gimme gimme.I'm seeing daffy duck holding a pearl while saying this in an old bugs bunny cartoon running in my minds eye.So, no land fill but crafty gifts years later.And here are the other three.     
 *                                                                I Also am making two formy mail ladies with mail boxes on them.It's just cutting gradient sizes 'til I get the look I want.Sewing onto a felt shape and hanging.Hope I can inspire some like NoBiggie Inspired me

Teacher gift

I got wonderfully inspired by this post for an apple decoration made out of an old book
http://www.nobiggie.net/2010/11/make-apple-out-of-book-paper.html
I used felt for the last two layers.And used the thread to make a loop to place a hook.So, here's my version:
OK so I made the pic really big.I just love the way this turned out.Have a Holly Jolly y'all.

Recycled to Christmas count down tree

My little tape holder and taper and I made an Advent,Christmas,holiday count down tree.Just think candy everyday 'til Christmas.Toilet paper rolls,gift wrap,tape,glue gun,plastic bags, tissue paper(gift kind:} NOT from the rolls) and CANDY.Did I mention the candy?I linked it a day late here:



"/>  



 You wrap the rolls.Tape is for the wrapping.Hot glue them in a tree shape.Wrap the candy in baggies or just the tissue paper(I did both).We use a decorated chop stick to push the treat out the back.I have 3 kids so, three little treats in each tube.You could use toys or anything that your kids like(candy).You can also add ribbon around it.My wrapping had a wax like coating which made me have to reglue a few places.Also, pick it up from the bottom.I pulled the first two layers off trying to pick it up from the top.DOH! Happy Holidays y'all~Anne

Fab Friday, An Autumn Scene

Doing blog jumps or parties or hops or trains is how I keep motivated to post.


 Here is the Autumn village scene that I put up for my mommy.It's her houses and I love them




I love the cheekiness of the Characters in this one
And of course, the middle of the scene has to remain open for the Kitty that Sleeps

And please ignore the milk jugs in the back.I am saving them to make this helmet for my hubby for Christmas.SSHHH don't tell

This makes me giggle darkly, I'm sick in the head

I'm complaining about being well?

 I know.I was sick for years and years.The last 7 months I have been off immune supressers .No infusions,no pills except for pain med(way low dose) and Calcium with D.My problem? I don't know what to do with myself.I have been sick on and off since I was 18.Pretty steady for the last 5 years.I am now 40.Cleaning up the house is a slow process.I am so use to having to stay in bed most of the day that I sometimes don't know when to start on the bathroom or living room.I use to be a maid.I know, hard to believe.

So, I'm learning I can do laundry everyday instead of all at once when I feel able to.I can clean the bathroom in parts instead of all at once.The vacumming is really my down fall.But I am learning.Always with that fear that my Crohns will flare up again.
I will continue to learn and my poor family will learn to deal with my frustration and give me some HELP.
So, yeah.How you doin"?

I won!!
