I’m Baaaack!! :-)

Hey girlfriends!!!!!  I finally have a computer again, but boy oh boy, am I ever having a hard time getting all my pictures moved from one place to another.  My loving hubby tried to help me move them all at once, but it only moved about 25% of them, so now I’m having to go through each folder and transfer them one folder at a time.  This is going to take FOREVER!! 
This is what I look like right about now!…………..

We did buy a terabyte, external wireless hard drive so all my pics will eventually be on there and in order.  Someday.   That thing says it holds 750,000 pictures! I should be good for a long, LONG time….or at least until Sweet Pea comes again, then I can’t promise how many pictures I’ll take. :0) 

I have so many things I want to show you all…if I can ever find my pictures that is.  I have a TON done on my window seat, I’m building a new project that’ll be going in my dining room (if it turns out right, that is), and we went on a wonderful vacation a couple of weeks ago that I can’t wait to tell you about!  Be patient with me…it’s all coming!  I just have to figure out where all my pictures went first. :0)

Blessings and HUGS!

Just So Ya Know :0)

Hey everyone!
Just wanted you to know I won’t have a post for a week or so….I’m having computer issues AGAIN!  My old computer’s hard drive crashed and I bought a BRAND NEW Toshiba.   I had it for 20 days and an error code popped up. I called Toshiba’s Tech support and you’ll never guess what the error code is for…..the HARD DRIVE!  I had just put all my software on, transferred all my files from my old computer and had it all set up the way I like it, and the hard drive goes bad.  :-/   I am NOT a happy girl! Who loses a hard drive in a 20 day old computer?!  I guess me! lol  Here’s the kicker…I had to pay $24.99 to have a special box shipped to me to ship it to them.   You’d think their customer service would have, at the very least, paid to have it shipped. 
Anyway, I’m wiping the computer clean and shipping it back in on Thursday….I’ll be computer poor for up to 10 days.  (probably more!)  Oh well.   I can read your comments on my phone, so leave me some love……at least I won’t feel completely out of touch. :0) 

I’ll try not to be gone too long!

How to Make a Skeleton Key Picture

Howdy friends! I have been a busy bee lately working on many projects around the house, but wanted to stop long enough to show you my latest one. 

I went to some yard sales a couple of weeks ago and found this frame…still brand new in the packaging for $3.00….can you say SCORE! (it had a clearance price tag from Michaels on it for $16.99…I like $3.00 much better!)

I took the frame apart and pulled out my handy dandy 3M Spray Mount Adhesive for a little fun!

I used a scrap of my drop cloth and cut it to the size of the back piece to the frame and used my 3M to adhere it like this….

See how nice it looks with the mat on top….


I had a ring of skeleton keys that Home Interior put out a few years ago and I took them apart.  I used my hot glue gun to adhere a different key to each panel of my mat.

I put a small one on each side, and a longer one in the middle for balance…..

I just put my frame back together and…..Walla, a nice new picture for my farm house dining room that I’m working on!

Now to find just the right place to put it…hmmm…..I’m still thinking! 

Hope you guys have a wonderful, blessed week!

Bye Ya’ll!
