Mojo Monday

Good morning mojo fans!  Since it's the last week of the month, we like to mix things up and focus on non-traditional sized cards, so we've given you a Round or Square option. Try a round card, a square card or both if you're feeling really inspired!!

To play along, just make a project using the provided sketch and upload it to your blog or online gallery. Then leave a link to your project using the linky widget at the bottom of this post.

It's cold outside today, we had 20 below this morning and about 8 inches of snow yesterday. I should not complain about the weather since the this is really the first big snow fall of the season, but I'm always cold so the warmer weather is what I like!

One of my favorite things about my town is Main Street with its many cute and quaint shops. One of my favorite things is to take a casual stroll down the street and take my time looking at all of the beautiful windows. For this next challenge, we want to see you give your next project a “window” element of some kind. Almost like you are dressing your own window into your project.

This is my project for this month's challenge. I used Flower Shoppe and Once Upon a Princess. I hope you like it!

Mom's Home! Maybe Life Will Be Back To Normal

Well, after a four month recovery from two hip surgeries my mother is back in her home with some help. It is good to have her home and close so family can keep a watchful eye on her!
I have been busy running for her but I'm not complaining I woud do anything for her. I will enjoy my extra time at home though doing the things I like best papercrafting and sewing!
I have made some cards that I will be posting and I have also have some sewing projects that I will be sharing.
I have to tell you that I have had an interesting week with E-Bay and Pay-Pal. I will not be purchasing anything big over e-bay again! My mother-in-law and I were looking at longarm sewing machines for quilting and I happened to go on e-bay and there we found one for a reasonable price so we placed a bid and got the machine. We went to pay and the purchasing amount was to high and pay-pal would not let the payment go through without our banking information they said so we gave them that information and it still would not go through. Then they told us that it was to much money for such a new account so after a week of stress and worry we finally sent the seller a cashier check and he will have his payment on Monday then we will get our machine! So buyers beware that when you purchase something big Pay-Pal might not let your payment go through.
I will be posting pictures of my recent project later today I hope!
Take Care,
