Wearing plastic gloves, press the qickcrete into the plastic trays, trying to make as compact as possible. Add glass marbles, stones, sea shells, and anything else you can think of…..Let dry for a few days, and pop put of the plastic tray, and your stepping stones are ready for the garden!Thank you to Mrs. Johnson for allowing me to “play” in cement!

Needing a new Bath Mat and not finding anything in the colors I needed, or the price range, prompted me to make my own!
Supplies: Two inexpensive or use contrasting Hand Towels, Two contrasting wash cloths
After ironing some iron on interfacing to the back of the wash cloths, I cut out the simple shapes and pinned to the contrasting towels.
I then appliqued the edges, sewed the towels back to back, and within an hour had a new bath mat for under $5.00

Welcome to my week with Vega!
Vega is a very sweet but high energy pup that belongs to one of my daughters. He has destroyed every toy that was left here with him (and has lost the others somewhere in my house). So after searching the internet (like a good host) and the local toy stores, I decided to make a craft with Vega!

“Memory Eternal” is a hymn that is chanted in the Orthodox church when a loved one has passed. One of the ways I have chosen to remember my mother in law who left us last week was to take the flower petals from her memorial, and save them in glass ball ornaments. She loved flowers of all kinds, I hope she would approve.
