Plaque for my kitchen

I made this plaque from a print found at Graphics Fairy- I like chickens in my kitchen and I like music- what better than the song of Five Chicks? I printed it in 5x7 and decoupaged it to a painted wood plaque.
Thanks for looking! Now off to craft a gift for number 1 Granddaughter- her birthday is next week.

They're Here!

My vintage office stamp set arrived today~ I can hardly wait to use them! But I wanted to post a photo first.
The white rectangle in the pic is a stamp pad; the label is white so it reflected my flash. There is a typewriter, a large paper clip, a telephone, RUSH! ,THANKS, an address label and a pointing hand. Oh- and a Handle with Care label.Thank you Karen- I will be using these a lot!

Bulletin Board

I had this bulletin board in my kitchen- but never liked the chicken- it was painted a dull taupe, with yellow outlines of feathers- so I covered the background and chicken with paper and mod-podge- I like the results. and its a fresh look for my clean kitchen.

ABCSC11 card

Here is my letter B for Bible card for Patter's ABC scripture challenge.
The bee and scrub brush are from Graphics Fairy, the heart was stamped; I drew the eyes and soap.
Our pastor preached this text last Sunday- so it was fresh in my mind- the challenge locked it down a little tighter I hope.

Here is my 6x6 page for a scripture challenge- I did one in 2009, that I really enjoyed. I'm looking forward to being in the Word and creating pages to help me dwell in His Presence.


I am officially on vacation! A whole week of no commute- no system issues- no claims questions- YAY.
The only paperwork I have to do is crafting- I started already with a bible verse challenge- except I selected a different A word- Abide. So now I will "have" to do another to post on
She is doing an ABC scripture challenge. As soon as the stickles dry on my Abide page I will scan and upload here.
