New Computer and Other Headaches!

1 comment:
OK,,, about a year ago we updated my old computer with Windows8 to the new Windows 10 program... well that created all kinds of issues for me including not being able to post on my Blog... so after about a week of hair pulling craziness I removed Windows 10 and returned to Windows 8... Well here I am, a year later and an old computer that was having way to many age related hic-ups,,, yesterday, I got a new computer that came with Windows 10... so lets hope all the bugs have been worked out and that I will be able to post on my Blogs... Got my eyes, legs and fingers crossed! lol!
LOL!

Christmas Crafting...

3 comments:
I have been keeping busy Christmas crafting...
Today I went to the Post... dang, so far I have spent close to $100 in postage mailing out packages to family and friends,,, Yep, for once I am ahead of schedule! HoHoHo!

I just finished up another Boot Bracelets and some ribbon Angel ornaments...
I can't post pics of the other goodies as some of the recipients are readers of my blog.
 these lil Angels are easy peasy to make...
 I love making Boot Bracelets from repurposed fashion jewelery.
Now to get to work on some cashmere scarves from recycled cashmere sweaters...
HoHoHo!

This is our 3rd year here in the foothills of the mountains... The 1st year was a new adventure but last year it was very hard for me to get into the Holiday mood...because I so missed my grandkiddos.
I decided to Not let myself miss out this year and pulled out all my Christmas decorations...
and quickly got to work...
I put on my silly snowman sweatshirt, turned on some music to groove too and before I knew it... tada! All Done!

 wool felties out...
 stacks and stacks of 'stuff'...
 wreaths need to be hung...
