DD got the tattoo kit from SU...

And look what she has done. She got both of my ankles... I think they are kind of cute...

I Got Creative ....

Well I got a bit creative tonight before dinner. Today during the break between bus runs I went to Dollar Tree. I got three small pillar candles. I decided to try my hand at stamping candles. I have tried it before. But this time it seemed to click. So here is what I came up with. Nothing real special but I am pleased with the results. The pictures are not the best as I took them with my cell phone.

This candle is done with a flag stamp I got at a yard sale. I stamped on the tissue paper with basic black ink and colored it in with markers. I didn't embellish it any further. I thought it looked nice just as it was. The only thing I would add if I had one is a star brad to the star.

This is stamped with the Looks Like Spring set. Stamped in Orchid Opulance. Then I added a square rhinestone brad (purchased from Michaels) to the center of the Flower

This one is the flower from the Pocket Full of Fun stamp set. I stamped three flowers in classic black and colored them in with markers. Then after melting them into the candle I added multicolored flower brads. These were purchased from Micheals.

OMW its been so long

WOW!!! it has been a month since I last posted anything. Well here I am. I have returned. I am very tired tho. Yesterday was a very busy very fun day. Becky and I went to meet friends and family at IKEA in Conshohocken (i think thats how you spell it) Pennsylvania. We shopped for a couple of hours then we went off to the Cheesecake Factory for lunch. OMW!!! The burger I had was GINORMAS!!!!! Big doesn't even begin to describe this burger. It was soooooo very delicious. Not to mention the mound of french fries they had on the plate. And I liked the french fries. They were crispy but not at all greasy. I didn't finish my lunch tho. I couldn't even begin to eat it all. In fact I didn't even have room for any cheesecake for dessert. Here is a picture of the burger. Also one of me holding up the burger. It is almost bigger than my head.

It was a very fun day tho. Becky and I got home around 12:30 am. Becky is still in bed. She is very tired. She got to see some her cousins she hadn't seen in a very long time. She was sooo excited.
Maybe we can do a trip like this again sometime. What fun that would be.
