Yo-yo's and more...

Well..I joined the yo-yo craze. Bought myself two of the Clover yo-yo makers..one in a heart shape, and the other in the flower shape.

You can find them here:

I have yet to use them, but..I do have several projects in mind using fat quarters of fabric.
I love when Joann's fabrics has the 99 cent sale on the fat quarters. But at least I have my tools and fabric ready.:0)

I'm still adding to my yo-yo Christmas garland, and when it is completed it should measure about 15 feet. The nice thing about it is that I can display the garland year round..I can drape it over a set of French doors or anywhere really.

I'm also contemplating making up a bunch of miniature aprons to be used as ornaments on my tree this year. A homespun look, simple and less glittery.
---------------
Today is my birthday...I'm not quite 40...but close.:0)
Hubby's birthday was yesterday..and I bought him a cake and icecream.
We both had nice days. Just relaxing and enjoying our special day.
I recieved a few birthday cards from friends and family.
And yes..I'll probably get a slice of cake after dinner.:0)
---------------------
I have some "catch up" to do with all of you lovely gals that have visited my blog lately. Several new faces..wow! I love it. Always love to have folks visiting with me, and it's so nice to meet a new friend.So I'll be visiting with you all soon.
------------------
I'll be taking my photo entries tomorrow to the Visual Arts Center. I'm crossing my fingers. I hope I place a ribbon, but you really never know how the judge will look at an image and what they will see as a "winner".It is fun to enter anyhow though.
---------------------
Well..I better get busy with making dinner..don't want the natives starting a revolt..ha.:0)
------------------
Thanks for joining me in "blogland" and thanks so much for all the lovely comments.
Have yourself a beautiful evening!

Happy Birthday!!!!!!! 40's are no big deal, believe me! I've been waiting for a 40's birthday to bother me since I was 35, 10 years ago. lol! But enjoy your 30's while you can.

I love all your photos you are entering. MY fave is the butterfly on the flowers. I bet it's the big winner!
