Improving my blog

I really, really need to make a button for my blog! I have been checking out this blog:



And she is great at building her blog and giving tips to others...So my goal this weekend is to get a blog button! And I know I need to take more time to show tutorials....But I want to thank everyone who has become a follower!  If you follow me then I will follow you...we will go in circles together lol!
Anywho, I have just a little project to show (and yes it lacks step by step instructions on how I did it..I am working on this) but there are soooo many flower tutorials out there so the blog world is not lacking at all.

So next week my daughter and my nieces and nephews are getting there pictures together so I'm making a couple of these for the girls.

I try not to post to many pictures of my daughter but I thought this was a cute side view.
There are so many tutorials out there and different ways to make these flowers, I of course picked the easiest way. I just used ribbon ran it thru the machine to gather it. Then I just used my glue gun and started gluing it into a circle.

put a little satin in the middle and a couple of beads and there ya go! I'm going to make another one in orange and red.
And if you missed it, I made this shirt this week as well...Well I didn't make the whole thing, I just reconstructed the t-shirt a little. Read more about it.

Thanks for looking! I am linking to:

Get a Hobby!

Hobbies help you improve your mental health and well being because  you're engaging the creative network in your brain, you are challenging you mind and keeping it sharp. Its also a stress reduction. When you concentrate on your hobby it is clearing your mind of other distractions. It makes you happy! It makes you interesting! If you are married its important to have other things, separate things that make you happy.  Don't rely on your spouse to make you happy. You both need to find happiness in the things that you enjoy and since happiness is contagious it will rub off on your spouse. You also need to give your spouse space so they can enjoy things they love to do, its important to keep your identity in a marriage! You can still "find yourself" while being married. (I've been married over 20 years) You don't need to rely on people to make you happy! People will let you down, they have there own obligations they have to tend to so if you a

Your First Sewing Machine!

People making masks as well as others picking up new hobbies due to quarantine and with Christmas around the corner this might even be on your list! So are you looking to buy a sewing machine? If you are in the market for a new Sewing machine you might be a bit perplexed with all the different features.
