Hello June!

It's just hard to believe that it's June..
Where is the time going?

We have been very busy with work that it's been
just about impossible to take a little
bit of time for ourselves

except for last weekend it was great my husbands brother
and his wife made a stop over coming back from  Hawaii
and on their way back home to Chicago..
So we celebrated free time on Memorial Day weekend..

Before their arrival we had a major project to get
done.. one side of our fence blew down in the last 
rain and wind storm we had
in Southern California!
So that had to be fixed...

And then on top of juggling work
we had our lease coming to an end on the car
and we had to quick go out and do some test driving
And after all the looking and test driving we came back to a Prius
once again.. we just loved our 2014 Prius and with all the
improvements that have been made even better gas mileage!!
And we are happy we did!

And then the first week of June we have a brand new
Dollar Tree ..we had a previous one but it was much smaller
this ones huge!

Hope your enjoying some good weather where you live 
we are having some nice sunny Days.. perfect for gardening

Hello Spring! It's Spring Break!

After a Very Dry Drought here in California..
When we were cautioned from the water company
when and how we were able to water our lawns...
We were then blessed with wonderful Snow in the mountains
and lot's of rain~

And so now Spring is here and everywhere you look it's
a whole lot greener around us!

We celebrated a Spring Wedding...
our niece...

And Got out all the peeps for Easter

And had an Easter Egg Hunt..

Grands on Spring Break so we had sleepover...

and spent some quality time with my Mom...

And now the Estate Sales begin...
It's been very busy so far...

Springtime Madness

I've been busy working on some Springtime Goodies~

I usually don't do much if any St. Patricks Day Goodies 
I go from Valentines Day..
straight to "Spring!

Recently I scored a great collection of 
vintage bump chenille...

more then enough ... in fact
I've been selling some in my Shops..
a girl couldn't possibly use it all!

I have wanted to make these Easter Bunnies for sometime
I had some plain spun cotton heads
so I added a face gave her some ears...
and dressed her in her Sundays Best!

The larger 4" bump chenille came in handy
for this plush bunny and the Easter baskets
I've been making out of chenille..

Working towards getting a nice assortment of handmade
goodies in my Etsy Shop.. I have 
more ideas then I have time for how about you?

Thanks for popping by~

Handmade Valentines

To me there is always something a bit more special about
receiving a Handmade Valentine...

Ever since our kids were young I remember
bringing out the suitcase full of paper hearts
valentine images for cut-outs and glitter & glue..

And the children would work on creating..
Something special....

This year I've been very busy with work
so in the late hours you can find me
glue gun in hand working on my Valentines...

I have a special Tub filled with all my Supplies
and I'm trying to be very thrift minded not adding
to my stash but instead using up what I have..

It's one of the goals I have for 2017
buy less and use what I have to create!

Happy New Year Friends~

Realtor by Day... Crafter by Night

Well I thought it's about time I steal
a few minutes to say hello to my Blogging friends

I've been really stepping things up with my Realtor job
a dear Realtor in my office that is very successful gave me a little tip..
When I asked her "what do you do to get so many sales?"
She said the recipe to her success is just getting out and meeting people
networking with friends.. getting out of the office

So taking her advice I've really put myself out there
I had one client in a Mobile Home park thats very close to my home
and I just worked it and I worked it hard
having Open Houses meeting and greeting people
and you know what it's working..

It's an older home but the owners have added some nice touches!

So since I've been busy most days... with Real Estate

I'm crafting in the evenings 

Next I've got to find sometime in the day to get
pictures taken and add these Holiday goodies to my Etsy Shop

I hope your doing well and life is good ......

With Thanksgiving fast approaching and
Christmas right around the corner...
I'm gonna keep that Glue Gun fired up!

Hugs & Kisses
