It's Been A Long Long While!

...Blogger Blues...

   It's been a really long time since I've posted anything. The reason is pictures. Yeah, I have holes in many of my posts. My pic's are missing! I tried to figure out my problem. Really don't have a good solution. Anyhoot, I believe I know what the issue is now. (I hope) It's with Picasa. I had gotten a smart phone and they are usually run by Google which uses Picasa. Some how I automatically got Picasa on my phone. It was linked to all of my devices via my phone. In an effort to clean up my phone a bit...I erased pics on my phone (on Picasa) that I knew I had stored else where. erased it everywhere I used it! Anyhow, I have my devices un-synced now. I'm hoping that this will solve the problem. We'll see...fingers crossed. 

So let's give this another try shall we? Thought I'd start off with a simple post for now. I've been busy making some thangs for a few swaps. Rolo's, ornaments, leaves and brooches. I have to get them mailed out soon, but here's a pile of them!

They were a lot of fun to make. It was the first time in a long time that I was on a roll. Sometimes it's a struggle to make each one...but these were just aching to be made! :) Here's a close up on some of my faves...

These are the ornaments I made. The swap encourages strangeness! I used a yard stick as the base...and pics from Ranger's "Found Relatives" collection. It's topped with floral wire and later I added some ribbon and fibers.

Some fun brooches!

Here are the leaf shapes...

Finally, some Rolo's...

Well, in some ways this is a test to see if my pics disappear! I hope that this one sticks! Thanks for stopping by. :)


  1. Awesome, welcome back to your blog ;) I love your leaves and rolos and... well, all of them, really.

  2. Wow you've been busy! Love those art pins! It's good to read a blog post from you again!

  3. I love them all & I hope I get at least 1 of them in the swaps.:)
