New lining in an EXPENSIVE purse

I just finished putting a new lining in an expensive purse. It's nice to be able to do RECONSTRUCTIVE surgery on Kristins' purse. It is an adorable purse. Surgery went well! And just to think I didn't have to go to medical school. LOL It's been a long day. I didn't have time to play with my recreating but I hope to have time tomorrow.

Creative Seat cushions

Don't you love to think outside the box? I was asked to make seat cushions for the folding chairs at church for folks you have a hard time sitting in those hard metal folding chairs. I put two seat cushions together, the seat part I put the no-skid material on the bottom and I put a sleeve on the back cushion so it slides over the chair. I spent most of today making 14 of them. Check out the picture. Let me know what you think.

March 3, 2010 Freshman Orientation

Wow, was Freshman Orientation fun! It brings back so many memories. I would love to go back to high school with some of the knowledge I have now. A friend mentioned that they would because they might not be where they are now. That is such a great and valid point. But still I would like a little more knowledge. Hopefully I shared enough with my oldest so he can make the most of these wonderful high school years that go so, so FAST!!! I guess that would be my BIG advice--Make the most of your high school years! Once they are gone you can't go back and relive or change them. I wonder if teenagers can understand my advice or do they have a mind set like, "I can't wait to get out of school!" What do you think?
