Quiet Sunday yesterday and last fire of the season.........

The time changed over the weekend....oh boy!  I get up late enough as it is and now that we've "sprung forward" it will be even later! LOL!  Yesterday it rained all day but nothing severe thank goodness.  I had a fire going all day to chase the dampness away. 

It will probably be the last fire of the season as today the sun is shining brightly and it is supposed to be in the high 70's and tomorrow 80's!  Yep....we skip right over Spring and go directly to summer but it's okay because the humidity won't be here for awhile yet.
I made my corned beef and cabbage with carrots, turnips and rutabaga and potatoes too of course.  It was good but not the best corned beef I've had. 
 I had decided that Sunday's were going to be R' n R' (rest and renewal) and also to do fun and creative things.  I 'm not sure if I mentioned it but I signed up for an online Collage Basics with Vintage Paper class.  It is available on  I found it on the side bar of Graphics Fairy which is another wonderful site for free vintage graphics.  She has DIY projects, free graphics every day and a library of over 2600 more, backgrounds and links to many other interesting sites having to do with ephemera.  So, I gathered what supplies I had and what I had picked up at the Dollar store and Wal-Mart.


Did you see the E-6000 glue?  I got that at Wal-Mart!  Who knew!  Everyone talks about that glue for crafts and projects and I just figured I would have to order it online because it is used in industry but lo and behold there it was at Wally World!  Also, the stamps were a gift from Katmom last year.'ll be glad to know I am FINALLY going to use them!  Thank you again so much and also to Kim who sent me books encouraging me to "go for it".  So, to these 2 lovely ladies....a great big thank you!  I still need more supplies for the class so I logged on to Joann's and ordered more!  (I had a supply list for the class, thank goodness, because I have no idea what I'm doing! LOL!)  Right now, Joann's is having a sale and also FREE SHIPPING on purchases of $40.00 or more (which isn't hard, trust me!) until March 17th.  Just a little FYI.
So, as soon as I have all my supplies gathered around me I may have something to post.....whether you can recognize what it is or not is another story.  Just's ART! LOL!  Have a great Monday!
