Crafter's Corner


I have been part of a scrapbook club for a couple years now. The group meets once every month. Our group is filled with a variety of wonderful people. Sheila, the Close to My Heart consultant, is great. Each month we make an average of 4 scrapbook pages. Then we finalize the pages at home by adding pictures and journaling. I was able to complete our first 4 pages and finish an additional 4 pages along with 12 cards-cool huh? I have some of this paper still left so who knows what I'll make now. Tonight we meet and will have new projects for next month.

I think I'll post some of my scrapbooking/craft projects each month just to keep me motivated and give me a sense of accomplishment.





These 4 scrapbook pages along with these 12 cards are extras. (There are 2 of each card)

Polka Anyone?

This is the latest activity in our ward. It exceeded expectations at every corner. The 250+ atendees look like they're having so much fun. There were game booths for the kids and prizes were an absolute hit.

When ate authentic brats and had hot dogs and chips. The German Potato Salad and Saurerkraut provided a very unique and authenticity to the evening. To top it off we had apple struedel for dessert.
We were taught the polka and given a chance to put on our dancin' shoes. (You can see the kids having fun in the background.
Some of the men even learned a slap dance routine to provide some good entertainment for the rest of us.


There was a sing-along for the children and even included participation from everyone else. It was so much fun-THANKS to all who planned, served, cooked, attended-everyone!!!

to slide or not to slide

This is the sliding glass door that leads to our backyard. There would be a lot to enjoy if I could at least get outside. My walker needs a 25" clearance in any doorway, but my sliding glass door only has a 22" clearance...what to do???
After contemplating possible solutions my wonderful husband decided for the following modification....


This door happens to be 36". Enough clearance for my walker-woo hoo!!!
Now I can enjoy the beautiful backyard and the great weather. My husband was able to trade out sliding door for regular door in just 1 day.
I am so glad he came up with this. He even took care of the curtain. After talking with his mom about not be able to find a suitable curtain(Finding something we agree on is almost impossible), she made one for us. It fits just perfect and looks great. THANKS.

Making Movie Memories

The movie selection for the day was my new blu-ray of The Wizard Of Oz. There are lots of memorable moments-
*That's a horse of a different color.
*I'll get you my pretty, and your little dog too!
*Lions, Tigers, and Bears-Oh my!!!(This was a game that my Grandpa used to play with my cousins and I when we were young.)
*

this scene was was frequently quoted by my dad each time this movie was brought up!!

Thanks to The Wizard Of Oz for giving me wonderful memories that will last a lifetime.
