*This is what happens when*

you mix denim with Wendy Hammer's gorgeous felt rosettes
with Shimmerz and put them all together on a:


















tree....
(to see how I made this tree, simply visit the Shimmerz blog)

It was alot of fun cutting strips all willy nilly and adding
the beautiful Wendy Hammer Designs rosettes:




















I had some denim flowers I'd made a while back left over
so I used a few of those on there also:














and of course I added some shimmery goodness,
with all kinds of Shimmerz:
















it's super sparkly in the sunshine & so bright and pretty
inside with lights on it..
I'm adding it to my collection of tree's I have all over my house.

I hope you enjoyed my little tree as much as I enjoyed
making it!

Before I end today...
I just wanted to send you ALL lots and lots of thank you's.
For your prayers, thoughts, support & kind words about my
brother.  He's still recovering in the hospital
and our family is forever grateful to each of you for
all you've done. 
My brother is still in VERY serious condition...but
We know that God is in total control!
He is sooooo good.

Have a wonderful day,
xoxo,
me.

*The Girls Loft November*

did you get your November kit?
it's gorgeous...
(filled with The Girls Paperie's Tinsel & Twig)

here's some things I did with mine:


















I know...I'm the weird girl..cold in the cold. yum!
closer:






























Where did my babies go? Really? 10 Christmases ago?




















just last Christmas...it came out of nowhere. and STUCK.
I LOVED it.














and I was feeling somewhat whimsical..
I bought this tree & some balls a while back...
had Whoville on my brain & this is what I created:



















i'm in LOVE with my little tree...

(and I must be on a tree kick because I just created another one
that I'll show in a few days...)

closer:



















and before I end...
I have a prayer request...
(or if you're a positive thought person, I'd love some of those too..)
my brother was admitted to ICU in the wee hours of the night
due to some internal issues...he's only 49.
I'm a bit numb over this...

I will update as soon as I know something...

thank you and hope your weekend is fabulous,
xoxo,
~me.

*They Say It's Your Birthday....*

happy birthday to you:



















my birthday creation is up today on the Glue Arts blog!
We had the pleasure of working with gorgeous ribbons by

I love the outcome! To see complete details and directions

and watching him:
























(racing in the Senior Olympics - State of TX. event 
in Houston, Texas.- which he qualifies now for Nationals in June)

do this:


















(racing to the end, he got 4th place in the STATE of Tx., which qualified him for NATIONALS!)

and this:



















(as he races for the finish in race #2 -- he also placed 4th, but could be a possible 3rd.)


so now we're back home from Houston/Katy & Galveston Texas
on a winning , wonderful beach getaway high...
that's how we spent halloween. my kind of way!
