YOU ASK......"WHAT IS GOING ON OVER THERE?"

Remember HeHaw...

What's for supper Grandpa?

Well.... What is going on over there Barb? Glad you asked....Least ways I got a few emails asking.

Yesterday was spent running around.

Today I had a friend come over, I am helping her design a Bowling quilt for her Brother.

Then more running around.

Well....Saturday while running around with my husband we stopped at Hobby Lobby.

And I found these....

Aren't they cute???? Fifteen cents each....the only problem is they mostly have the initial "I" and one "A"..... So I walked away but then I grabbed my husband arm and said...

"Hold ON".....he heard the breaks screech!!!!

Whoa Nellie!!!

Yep....I couldn't pass them up....fifteen cents....did I say EACH????

My husband is now rolling his eyes (One day he is going to freeze that way).

We get in the car and he goes what on earth did you want those for. I said, I brought 10, that is one dollar and fifty cents....take it out of my pay....HA!!! (no, I didn't say that).

Well.....the wheels were churning

and a churning ( I am thinking in the Young Women mode for church)....

So I pull out my slice
Pull out my Accuquilt go cutter.
Cut circles the size of the circles on the pails from the Go cutter.

Cut each gals initial from the slice

Got some trusty MOD PODGE (you know where I am going with this....I guess I can just stop my post here)
Put some dots around the circle....and this is what I came up with. Oh yes.....do I hear some high fives????? Hasn't dried yet....but we are dancing over here!!
I made just one, this gal can't attend...but the other girls can do their own.

Oh yes.....so Mr. Bejeweled you can bring those rolling eyes from the back of your head now......

Other than that....you guessed it...not a thing is going on here...Not a thing.

  2. Yeap - they are gonna freeze that way - I really like the "take it out of my pay" - gonna grab that one to use. I love to repurpose things, but DWH just does not understand. Thanks for sharing. JudyC

  6. Barb your mind just never stops what a cute idea for just pennies. I have been trying to send you an e-mail with pictures but either I am stupid or the computer is playing games with me. I will keep trying.

  7. Great idea. And at 15 cents each you can't go wrong. I may need to check out my local Hobby Lobby and see what initials they have. :)

  18. Just love the creativity. You see something and you know where it should go. That is a gift. Other people only copy! (like me).

  19. LOL! I bought some of these on sale too. Only not as nice as 15 cents, but there were more choices of letters. After spending way too much time in the store scrutinizing the letters, I finally realized that I could do something for Ed and Sharon. Their anniversary is in Dec, so those little tins are in the attic near the Christmas decor. I wish I'd been as clever as you and made my own letters. :)
