Blogging Buddies all together!


I have a lot to share, but I wanted to start with the two days I spent with Deb Hogan.  What a wonderful hostess and friend!  I felt so special!!!!!

These tiny wooden blocks were on her kitchen window ledge…


Her home is warm, cozy and filled with wonderful sunlight during the day….


I had not met Erica yet, what a sweetie…we had such a good time…:)

Deb had sheets of cardstock with vintage card images all made up in a cute little box…I wish I had taken a photo!

Deb made us a wonderful lunch….this is her breezeway between her house and her garage.


Here we are snarfing up the goodies…..

What a wonderful day, it ended with a bunch of fun cards made and really good pizza.  Thanks again Deb, Tammy and Erica for a great day.

The next day Deb took me to Tammy’s garage sale where I picked up some rubber stamps and a cute, cute potholder…

Check out the Chevy !!!!!!!!!!!!




We went inside and saw Tammy’s new Hoosier…wish I had a better photo…


Then we went to one of Deb’s favorite stores…Haupt Antiek Market…





I thought I had taken more photos…Deb do you have any on your camera?  So fun, many different vendors under one roof….

One our way to Michael’s and Tuesday Mornings I saw this “retro” McDonalds'….




Too bad the food doesn’t taste like it did in the 50’s….

We then went to Michael’s and one of the biggest secret locations in the crafting world….Tuesday Mornings…we found lots and lots of good new stuff…CHEAP!  Ssshhhh…don’t tell anyone…:)

We also went to Deb’s store Aunti Em’s (I think )….take a look at a  good photo of the how packed the booths were.



I bought a few things from Deb’s booth and a couple of others…we both bought a round, scalloped cookie cutter while there….

…got home and made these, after we saw Tammy’s in her Hoosier…

The image came from a small book I bought from Deb….

This took us maybe 15 minutes and just imagine all the possibilities!

Here are just a few of the many items I got form Deb…garage sale and thrifting…

And of course I got to meet Jackson and Sweet Pea….I seriously thought about bring Sweet Pea with me!  She is such a tiny thing…and so sweet….Jackson was a good big brother too!

Hi Sandy-
I'm so glad that you had a good time on your trip! Looks like you brought home lots of cute little things. Think I might enlist Tammy to make me one of those cake tin ornaments!
It was wonderful to finally meet you! You are just as sweet and kind as I had imagined! I hope we get to see each other again someday!

Such fun! I think we all will be making one of Tammy's cookie cutter crafties! I had to steal the pic to look at later. Seeing all your bright friendly faces makes me so glad to be acquainted with such lovely women.
