Adding a signature to your blog post

I always wondered how people were putting a signature at
the end of their post. I was playing in blog land reading
all the wonderful blogs out there. I came across this blog:
She gives step by step directions and where to go. It was easy peasy!
See...Look there's my name right under this! While your there take time
to check out her blog. I loved it and am now a follower.

I've decided to move my studio to the formal dining room. It's been a mess!
I've also had plumbers in and out of my master bath for weeks now, so I am
so far behind! I haven't a lick of Christmas decor up or anything! I have how
ever painted my antique trunk (black). I'm waiting for my carpet to be installed
before I take pics. They are installing it a day early...WOOT WOOT! I'm so
stoked! They were to install it Thursday morning but called today and said
they could install tomorrow afternoon! I have no idea where I'm going to put
my buffet or anything...I'm a hot mess, I tell ya! I hope to be up and bloging
up a storm for the New Year! I have so many things I want to show you. I'm
great with decorating on a budget. I've found so many creative bloggers out there.
I'm excited about getting to play in blog land in my new studio with a fireplace!
The lighting is so much better in that room, so I can't wait to get it all set up.

Antique Trunk

I'm not sure if I should paint this black or burgundy?
I bought it for ten dollars at an estate sale.

Isn't this cute? I will have it
up on etsy, when I can figure
out how to make my picture
smaller (sigh).

Susan Boyle's album is out!

Susan Boyle's CD is out today! I cry every time
I hear the clip of her singing wild horses. I cannot wait to
hear this playing in my studio.

Aveeno...A Winter must have!

This lotion is the MUST have for this winter.

I have really dry elbows and have tried all the

lotions and creams, I can get my hands on too.

Yet nothing works. I was looking for new

lotions the other day and came across Aveeno.

I put it on that night. The next day I went to

put some more on and my elbows were so soft.

That night I put on more and was shocked. My

dry elbows were gone and my skin was so soft! If

you have dry skin...This is the BOMB!

Ava's Third Halloween

Isn't she a doll? She came over last night and said
"Mimi, I'll be a dog and you be you". I had to call
her a puppy the whole time she was here. She wagged
her tail, sat, stood, jumped, and begged for her snacks
all while sticking her tougue out. I wish I would had
taken a pictures.

Handmade Christmas gift tags

I had so much fun making these!  I always wrap
my presents in brown paper. These would look
right at home with my brown paper. But...This year
I'm going to do something different. I will give more
details much later. : )~

Shabby Chic gift tags

I'm so happy with the way these turned out. However,
I do need to work on my photo skills. I'm in the process
of designing tags that will hold business cards. I'm almost
done, they just need a little tweaking before I start cutting
them out. Have a great day!

both sets sold! I'm so excited! I will put pics up later of

It's Friday!! Woooohooo! My Granddaughter's 3 rd birthday
paty is tomorrow. I'm so excited, I ordered her a princess cake.
I can't wait to see it, we pick it up tomorrow. I have been so
busy making homemade gift tags for my etsy shop. I opened
one up about four months ago and never put anything in it.
I'll show you some sneak peaks. I'm hoping to get them up
Saturday night. Have a great weekend!
