Cissy and the Professor (and photoshop)

Graham Rawle's "Lost Consonants"

For all you "wordies" out there here is a guy that has a funny idea, drop a consonant and it changes the whole meaning of a sentenence. The lost consonant series is seriously funny, if you like that type of thing. So I wanted to share my warped sense of humor with you my dear followers. Pin It

Decoupaged Red Sox Keepsake Box

As promised here are the pictures for 5 year old Will's birthday keepsake box.

His father is such a big Red Sox fan that he even proposed to his wife using the big screen method, thankfully she was in her seat and saw the giant proposal, not up out of her seat getting popcorn or going to the bathroom; but apparently he was very worried that she was going to miss it.

I am sure that if it was legal he would have conceived his children at a Red Sox game!

Decoupaged Princess Cigar Box

I wanted to give my little 5 year old great niece a "princess" keepsake box.
I used a cigar box I bought for a dollar at a local cigar store.

Well, after peeling off the paper labels, applying a base coat of gesso, a pink coat of paint, I needed to download some images of princesses so off I went to the Disney Wikipage, used their images, printed them on an ink jet printer used a fixative to prevent ink bleed, glued the images, after the images were dry I gave the whole thing a couple of healthy coats of mod podge to seal everything, added some major and minor bling and chipboard flowers, added some princessy items inside the box and finally holy hallelujah I was finished.

Stayed tuned for decoupage cigar box no. 2 a boy's keepsake with a baseball theme tomorrow. Pin It

A Very Important Tea Date

I am placing this in the Crafty Secrets Linky Party going on over at Heartwarming Vintage.
I need an invitation for my mother's birthday tea party coming up soon. I made this e-vite using one of the images from their cute Wonderland Tea Creative Scraps.

I have a lot to do to get ready for this tea party with polishing the silver, shopping for the food, making the finger sandwiches, scones and lemon curd but I do have so much fun when I have an Afternoon Tea Party.

I would love to hear your stories about your tea parties or the ones you have attended.
