Mummers Mailbox

I have been working on a big scarecrow float for Golden Sunrise since January. One of the things we are adding to the float is a black plastic mailbox. I took this beatup box and did some magic. Wish I did a "before" pic on it. I hand painted the lettering and sunflower. Also added the glitter to the leaves, flowers and gords. We are looking for a scarecrow to put in the opening. If I can find the bird I will open the front flap, add straw and the bird. Here is the end result.

I don't do cute before coffee!

I finished another piece today. This one is a freebie called Morning Angel by Dragon Dream and says "I don't do cute before coffee" Boy, did I prove that true today of all days! I got to work this morning and there was no tea, no creamer for the coffee either! I was pissed! My manager was in there as I was complaining and I told him, if the secretary knew she was going to be out for a week then she should have given someone the key to where she locks all the supplies. (we have over 100 people on our floor, with a night crew so things tend to walk away). So I went back to my desk with an empty cup. He came over about 5 minutes later and saw how miserable I was and told me "Just go to the store and get creamer!" So I did. I didn't mind buying it and if I knew we were out I would have brought some from home. But I need my caffeine! That is my breakfast! So I was determine to finish this one today since it just fit and was proved!

Moving right along

Just finished this little guy. It is called, It Snows... by Glory Bee. I used a mix of DMC and GAST plus subbed the colors of the scarf with W90 Whisper Fiber from Rainbow Gallery and used White HiLights (also by RG) for the snowflakes. Now sure how I'm going to "finish" him but glad to get another finish. Not sure what is next. I have alot of biggies here and lately have been wanting to tackle one or two. We will see what I feel like when I wake up in the morning :)

I'm so proud of myself!

Here is a before and after pic. The before was taken last Aug and by the time I went on my diet I was a little heavier. The after was taken today. I'm getting there! My youngest, Eric, asked if I was sucking it in. I proudly said no and stood up. He gave me a hug and kiss :)

Look at this...two posts in one month LOL

Just finished Warm Winter Wishes by Waxing Moon. This was a fun one to do. Instead of using the Oatmeal for the snowflakes I used the white metallic DMC instead to give it some sparkle. I thought the oatmeal looked too "dirty".

What Tarot Card are You?

You are The Wheel of Fortune

Good fortune and happiness but sometimes a species of
intoxication with success

The Wheel of Fortune is all about big things, luck, change, fortune. Almost always good fortune. You are lucky in all things that you do and happy with the things that come to you. Be careful that success does not go to your head however. Sometimes luck can change.
