Random Goodness

Hello Friends. This post is very random but I love everything in it. In the above picture, I decided to try and make a couple of flowers. Please understand that I am just starting out and only practicing. With the white lace flower I did a running stitch along the side and pulled the lace tight. I then sewed the ends together. I used my glue gun to adhere a pearl in the center. I am very happy with how it came out. I tried out the "Ribbon Flower" technique. It didn't go very well in my opinion. You can still see parts of the chipboard on the edges. Like I said, it was just practice and I'm sure I will get better as time goes by. :) With this technique, I just twisted the ribbon around my fingers and adhered it to the chipboard circle. Thank you for taking the time to read this and see my first attempt at these flowers.

I WON!! I WON!! In the above picture you can see that I won a Cricut "An Ocean Of Words" cartridge. I entered a giveaway on Julie's blog ( and I can't believe that I won. I was so excited that I could hardly type in my mailing address to her. LOL. Check out this cute card she made me. It's so cute with the little bird. She is so creative and I love all her amazing work. Thank you so much Julie.

This above picture is my latest Antique store find. We have a little "Village" in our town filled with antique stores. I found some amazing old music sheets and an old book. I almost don't want to tear it up and distress it. HA HA. The one on the bottom right has notes where someone actually wrote their own music. I thought it was a sweet little find. :)

Last but not least, I ordered a few things from We don't have a Joanns in our area so I try to take advantage of their online sales from time to time. I would like to make my own stick pins, so I bought a pack of the corsage pins. When I placed my order, I had no idea the bling on the right side of the picture were so huge. LOL. It's okay, we can all use bling no matter what size. HA HA. I've wanted the "Summer in Paris" cartridge for a long time. I can't wait to start cutting out the cute images it has. Thank you for stopping by my blog and I hope you all have a fantastic and blessed day. Jenny :)
