I made a horrible mistake, I feel so bad.  In March I won a blog giveaway.  I really thought I won it from MadeByMomo but it was MadeByEJP.  I received her wonderful gift and I still didn't realize.  I posted here on my blog and made a video.  Then I won a YouTube giveaway from MadeByEJP (what are the odds???)  Thats when I discovered what I'd done.  I want to apologize to Ezlie (MadeByEJP) and tell her how sorry I am.  Please support her by checking out her blog and her YouTube:

YPP Stick Pin Swap

I've finished my stick pins for the swap I'm in at Your Paper Pantry.  Now I need to package them and get them shipped off.  My goal is to do this by wednesday :)  I mailed off my flowers last friday.  I haven't been feeling well so everything is difficult to do.  I feel like I haven't been doing anything creative - then I look around my messy craft room and realize I have been!!  I had the grand kids over last friday - it was a blast as usual.  We didn't do a craft this time - but I have my wireless internet set up so they could use it with their Ipods.  When I gave them the password, I told them it was my birthday - my grand daughter said "boy you have a long birthday grandma"  10 digits (my birthday plus other numbers) I had to laugh.
My husband was upset saturday when I was in Roberts too long.  He had gone to the grocery store near by and left me at Roberts to shop.  When he was finished he parked and waited for me.  He waited 20 minutes.  That was not a good time.  Do any of you lose track of time in your favorite store?  I do it all the time.  I know better than to shop when he might be waiting.  (Plus he hates the money I spend on my crafts)  Do you have a similar problem?  Please comment and let me know.  Thanks

Finishing projects

Does anyone else have problems finishing projects?  I get them to the last point and seem to run out of steam.  I put them aside to finish later and it sometimes doesn't happen (case in point I have a shirt I made for my grand daughter that I never made the button holes for - it's 5 years old)  Other things I do finish - especially if I have a time limit (ie birthday, anniversary etc) 
I'm finishing up the flowers for my swap.  I re-made the super large ones so they are smaller, they turned out nice.  Now to make the background to put all the flowers on, write up my info then off in the mail they go.  Let's see if I can get them mailed by wednesday the 13th  (crossing my fingers)  I'll keep in touch *wink*

Early Saturday morning

Woke up too early this morning (around 2 am) because of the pain.  Had to take my pills and wait.  My right foot is bad today - hard to walk on. 
I've joined two swaps at My Paper Pantry - the flower and stickpin ones.  I misread the flower instructions and thought they had to be a minimum of 2 1/2 inches wide - after I made 18 flowers I re-read and saw it was 1 1/2 inches!!  Yikes!  I have huge flowers hahaha.  Luckily I could fix one set (they were fabric & lace) I took them apart and cut them down and re-did them (finshed that part this morning)  Another set I'll have to cut out of paper again.  I plan on giving the huge flower but I'll put it on the back of the tag with my info.  I've just taken forever to get these flowers done!!  I only need to make 4 sets of 4 (16 total) to trade, but I wanted a set for myself and another set for a friend.  Turned out be 24 flowers total and only half are "done"
I have a set of the stick pins I'm going to trade - spring/easter theme.  Those should be fairly easy to finish up.
Back to work for me!!
