T-shirt quilt

I finally put together the t-shirt quilt I promised my brother some years ago.   I used 18 different t-shirts, iron on interfacing, iron on bonding, and stitched it all together with a satin wide blanket binding.   I will be posting a YouTube video with details on how I put this together.

Baby Shower Center Piece

For this center piece I used the following supplies:
DCWV Rustic Pack 12x12 paper stack
Cricut Cartridges:  Country Life, Doodle Charms, Elegant Edges
Cuttlebug folder Swiss Dots
Tim Holtz Distress Markers
gold Stickles
Lost and Found Brads. . .
Paper flowers by. . .
SVG file with Sure Cuts A Lot software
1/8" ribbon, various laces and lace flowers

When I cut the Cricut shapes, I used the flip button to cut out the piece for the backside.  Even for the bottle. You would think the shape was the same back to back but its not and that's what I usually find except for true circles and squares.

Operation Write Home

I just packed up my first shipment to Operation Write Home. (OWH)  They organize and send out cards made by crafters like you and I to our American Heroes in the Armed Forces to that they can write home.   I found out about this group from fellow YouTube crafters and  With my first order from Stampers Best, they sent a free Operation Write Home logo stamp that you stamp on the back of the cards that you make and send. Would you like to help out?   Go the OWH web page and find out more.  Be sure to check out the How to and Newbie videos and tips on just how this all works.   I think it is a great idea and I wish I had known about them sooner so I would have had an outlet for all of the cards that I could have been making as well as helping out our American Heroes!!!   Well, back to work on my next shipment of cards to Operation Write Home.  Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.  Amy

More "free" recycled craft supplies

I found another old crafted item to recycle into new ones!    I found this old "pillow" wreath that a friend made for me back in the 80s.    Yes the 1980s.   Now I need to figure out what to do with all those "pillows".  Thanks for stopping by.  Amy

I guess they ran out of names.
