Two problems

Hi!!!! I'm still I thought I would let you know what's going on at the moment.

First, my main laptop, which is about six years old, has died on me. I don't know what the problem is and I don't know how to fix it. I can't use it at all. It started having problems last year so my boyfriend gave me a smaller, basic one so that I could at least have something to get online with. That is the one I started to use this weekend when the big one died.

Problem is, that one has issues with the power cord. It doesn't charge the battery and for it to do so you have to wiggle and jiggle the cord until you find a specific position where it starts to charge again. So I guess it got tired of the wiggling and jiggling because now the power cord is not working at all. The battery is on it's last charge and I'm sure it will die soon if it hasn't already done so. I turned it off and haven't used it since Saturday.

So, I guess I won't be able to post anything on my blog until my BF gets back from his latest trip (November). He's the techie around I will still be able to visit everyone's blog using my most recent birthday gift, an IPad. I'm really not one for these types of gadgets, but it was my BF's gift to me so I can't sound

Problem #2: I've received emails from some of my internet friends letting me know that they've been receiving weird emails from me. I'm sure you all know the kind. If it looks weird to you then don't open it. I have also been receiving them and if I'm not sure I won't open it up. This happened to me once before and I don't know if there is anything I can do to stop it from happening. It's so annoying that people have nothing better to do than hack, spam or try to scam others!

Ok, so I think that covers it all. I hope you all are having a great start to the week!

Have a beautiful day! =)

Tub of flowers

This is where some of the flowers have been transplanted to. I made a rusty "tin" container for them. I also made some garden stakes and of course they have to be rusty.  =)

A million flowers....

Okay, so maybe not exactly ONE million, but it certainly felt like I was making a million of them!

There are purple, blue, pink, yellow and white ones. I've already "planted" some of these, but I'm waiting on glue and paint to dry. So, in the meantime I thought I would show you these other things I made.  =)

I used some of the white ones here:

The little bird is a bead/charm that I glued to a toothpick, and the base is one of those jewelry findings. I rusted it up and eventually I think it will find a place on the porch of my house. I hope you can see it well enough. Taking pictures was a fuss!

"A" is for Alma. The name of my mini lady.  =D

Have a beautiful day!   =)

My first blooms!

Another thing I've been wanting are flowers! I love them in real life, although I don't have any except for two small house plants. Last week, I sat down and tried to figure out how to make them and with the help of some Google images this is what I have so far. Remember, my hands are very Although, in my defense I wasn't able to work on them at all over the weekend.  =)

I also had an idea on how to make the flower pots and then remembered that Casey has a great tutorial on how to make terracotta pots. You have to scroll down a bit the page to see this tutorial. So with my weak first attempts, and the help of Casey's tutorial I was able to make these and a bunch more in other colors. The ones in these pics are going to get a little aging done.

I also tried making a plant, but I think I need to work at it some more.  =)

Have a wonderful day!

Surprise gift!

Fabiola offered a little surprise gift to the first person to guess what her new project was going to be. Lucky me to guess correctly!  =)  It arrived this week and I was quite curious to see what it was going to be. When I saw this adorable bag I couldn't help but to smile. Isn't the stitching just so cute? I think it's cheery!  =D  I still can't get over how tiny those little bundles of floss are. I'm so used to seeing every thing through a computer screen that when I see it in person I'm just so fascinated.  lol

Thank you so much Fabiola! I really do love my gifts!

Please stop by for a visit. She just made the loveliest plants and has a blog full of  beautiful things. =)

I've been working on making some flowers and hopefully will be able to show you soon. Aside from not having a clue on how to make them, it has turned out to be quite time consuming. When I say I am slow, I mean I am sloooooooowww.  LOL

Hope you have all had a lovely weekend!
