Green Grass

Well the only green grass I have here is from the package I purchased at JoAnn's fabrics yesterday!! I created a little vignette on one of the tiers on a kitchen tray. It does brighten the space up.

Today in the past twelve hours we have had rain, sleet, freezing rain, lightning, thunder and hail!!!! That can be Kansas in the winter.

Ice on the back patio.

Our front porch.

Our temps are in the 30's so I don't see it getting better for a few days, until then I'll just enjoy my grass in the kitchen.

One of my favorite creative things to do is sew. I've been sewing since my 20's but it's been awhile since I have spent time in the sewing room.

This past week I decided to make a pair of spring pants for me--maybe to wear Easter. I will make a top to go with them next week. All they need is hemming.

My hubby wanted a shirt to wear while he was woodworking. I didn't use an expensive fabric but he decided he likes it too much to work in. So now off to buy more fabric for a work shirt.

Here's one of my very favorite actresses with a cute saying that fits today's post.

Have a super productive creative week.

During this Olympic season I have seen our flag flying above the medalists and also many people waving the flag in the stands. Makes my heart leap with pride for our country.

Today I hung my flag outside in tribute!!


Tonight we watched Shaun White take a gold medal and he was so overwhelmed with joy. We cried right along with him. I snapped these while watching the coverage.

After hearing what Shaun has endured in the last few months and how he overcame is so inspiring.

A crazy little thing called love

Last evening our church had their annual Valentines Banquet called "A crazy little thing called love".
Such a fun event--wonderful food, music and entertainment.

They always have a photo booth up and the pictures are gifted to each person.

Also a cute "soda shop" set up for pictures to take with your phone!!

The tables and programs just as cute.

My sister Lori and BIL Greg sat with us at our table.

Making memories with family and friends is the very best.

Hostess gifts

I',m busy making little take-home gifts and two hostess gifts for our Valentine Red Hat luncheon this month.

Russel Stover is the best candy in my opinion (of course the founder started the company and the family lives here in Kansas).It's still delicious!!  I LOVE the strawberry hearts--got one for each gal.  Some other valentine candy for their Valentine bag too.

I found two really cute little items at Hobby Lobby for the drawing!

Something to look at each day on your refrigerator to know you are loved all year long.

How many of you keep special greeting cards? I'm one of those who hang on to things made from my children and grandchildren.

Ran across this special card a few days ago that my granddaughters made when they were 8 and 10 years old, will be residing on my refrigerator until Valentines Day has passed.

Even though they are now teenagers they think it's kinda special their Nana kept it.!

Felt hearts

Shopping today at JoAnn Fabric store I ran across their Valentine decor 40% off. Well I loved this one.

I also found a 20% coupon on-line so a very reasonable decoration and really cute I think.

Being the crafty person I am, I'm trying to figure out how to make the roses myself.
