Being a "woman of age" Ive been patting myself on the back for wearing the same size or smaller than the size I wore in High School...Whew!  Im doing goooood!...Maybe not so much...

I've been listing patterns of all decades lately on Katsfabricsnmore...and what Ive realized is, that...hard to say....IVE BEEN LIVING IN LA-LA LAND!!!

More info coming! After wiping tears and attempting to boost back my self esteem.  What the heck???? I hate our society sometimes!

New at KatsFabricsnmore!

One of my fun ladies that stays with us during the walk, sent me a thank you card that was made by her daughter, using old trims, buttons and pattern pieces.  Its a sort of collage.  I liked em and decided to make some for sale.  I did, of course put my own "spin" on them, so they are a little different than what she does.  I have tons of old tissue patterns that I cant sell because they aren't complete and of course I have buttons and trims coming out of my ears!  

These are so fun to make!  Ive made quite a mess in my work rooms and my fingers still have Modge Podge peeling off of them, but creativity was flying!!!  I will be putting them in Charyl's shop too.  Hope you like them too!

PS....the tissue from patterns makes great "tissue" for gift wrap...I wrap all my patterns and books in it now, before I send them off to my customers.

Its been a week now since we've been home from DC. It's taken me that long to get caught up and feeling any form of normal!  Ha.

Im sparing you all my photos and only posting two that were my favorite parts of our trip.

Of course being able to watch Dalton graduate was the highlight of the trip.  It's so hard to believe that he will be going off to college in just a little over a month!  Time has flown by, but he has grown into such a nice young man, I know he is going to do well in life.

The other highlight was Arlington National Cemetary and the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier.  Breathtaking!

I'm back into my Etsy shop and ready to list a ton of new things...stay tuned!

I'm also working on a new project making home made greeting cards to list in be on the lookout for that.

I'll be blogging more too...lots to catch you up on!
