I live in the beautiful state of Wisconsin. I'm a wife and stay at home mom of 3 sons. I love to paint, sew, knit, stitch and create. I enjoy selling my creations at local fairs, ebay and here on my blog. When I not crafting I love to decorate my home. I'm always moving furniture, painting or switching things around. Thanks for stopping by and enjoy your day~*~Leanne~*~
I visited the 9/11 Museum this summer and came upon this amazing quilt....the Victims Quilt.
I started to read the plaque next to the quilt and immediately I remembered my mom telling me about this quilt. We didn't know it made it into the museum.
A wonderful quilt artist from my parents small town Connie Daniel was one of the people to design and make this quilt. It has so much detail every victims picture is on this quilt. Little angels are next to the picture of moms that were pregnant.
My parents, my brother and his family, and my cousins and their families were all able to stitch on this quilt. That how Connie was, she wanted to share her love of quilting with everyone.
First day of school and it's time for some fall decorating!
I can't believe how long it's been since I posted here. My summer was filled with family visiting, vacations, Summerfest, crafting and of course August our birth month. Everyone in our family has a birthday in August so were eating cake all month long.... Yum!
I love decorating for fall it starts my favorite time of the year, first fall and then Christmas.
Craft fairs start the middle of this month and I've been crafting like crazy. Stitching and painting, painting and stitching. Check my Facebook page for some pictures of things that I've been working on.
All the Christmas decorations are put away, the house is clean and
I'm playing with my chalkboard.
I have wanted one for quite sometime now and while I was Christmas shopping I found this one. There's nothing wrong with buying yourself something while Christmas shopping....right? It fits on the wall perfectly...just what I had envisioned.
I'm still learning how to draw on my chalkboard but I think I did ok on this one.
I won't tell you how long it took to do this...lol.
I wanted to display some of my snowmen on the chest in the foyer.
I picked the ones that had something to do with being out in the snow.
I just love the snowman on ice skates.
These snowmen are on the hutch in the kitchen.
They looked so good together that I just had to keep them out.
I just love this nutcracker snowman!
He was a Christmas gift from my Mom...she painted it for me!
I always treasure the things my Mom makes for me.
Today is cold, blowing and snowing outside...yuck!
