Flea market Finds

We went to the Branham High Flea Market on Saturday. Chris and I had never been there and we just barely made it there before it closed. It was hot as hell and Kiah kept bugging me for video games. Which he knows I'll never buy them from a flea market or garage sale. You know they won't work. In the short time we were there I managed to find some really cool treasures and only spent $3.00 on them. Quite a few items were free so that was a double score. Next time around I might try to get a space to sell some stuff. I am tired of giving everything to Goodwill, only to have them mark it way up. We'll see how that works I'll probably buy more than I sell.

I need a vacation from my vacation

I can't believe it is already July 22nd. This month has left me exhausted and it is not even over yet. We went up to Orleans, Ca in the beginning of the month.

As soon as we got home my Grandmother who has dementia wondered and was brought home by a sheriff.

Since then everthing is just a blur of social workers, daycare kids, karate, swim lessons, and phone calls.

And to top it all off I have lost my mojo and have't been able to produce something worthy in almost a month.

Stand-Up Spangled Stars

This was another quick and easy project we did this week. You want to cut out stars that are equal in size. Decorate. Next on one star you want to cut a slit through the top of the star point to about the middle of the star. With the next star you want to cut through the bottom in between the two star points til you get to the middle. Fit them together and they should stand on there own if not you can secure them with a little tape on their sides.
