Big Day on Saturday....

I made these tags for our son's wedding on Saturday...I posted the shortest video ever...I guess it's the shortest one I've is a cute idea my son, and future wife had. I just wanted to share it with you....take care

Hi everyone....just dropping by...smiles

I am busy getting things done for our son's Wedding on Saturday.....I just finished making these cute tags, with keys attached, had 60 to make. They will hang on a cut out piece of round wood, and guests will take one off the hook, and write down what has made their Marriage a SUCCESS, then hang it back on the key, that will show it's filled out on the back...I'm doing a video of the creation of it...smiles...Have a WONDERFUL weekend, and I will see you on the next video.....God Bless

Welcome to my reorganized Craft Room

I wanted to fit this Oak Dresser in my craft room, and take out the 5 Michaels white 4 drawer desk, that I built to house my craft supplies. It took up so much of my room, that I decided to take a day, and totally clean out my room. Now it looks not so crowded with the dresser in its place. I just wanted to share where I do all my video's, and crafting with you today.
