Thrifty Thursday…String Storage

Welcome to another Thrifty Thursday…using what we have around the house (or super cheap things) to make our lives a little easier.
Today, it’s string storage. I know, trivial, but we all have string right? Well, here’s the new string idea in my sewing room…mounted on the wall.

We all have baskets around the house, but if not, these are from The Dollar Tree for…you guessed it…$1.00.
The baskets hold your balls of string. It’s easy to see, contains them without the balls going every where and the baskets could hold more than one ball too.

I don’t have small children around my house, so I hooked scissors on the basket for easy cutting!

The holes in these baskets allows for the string to be threaded through…just pull as much as you need and cut!! The rolls of string stay inside the baskets.
Easy peasy!

Hope you have a Thrifty Thursday, ~Karen~

Our Family Trip to Jamestown, Virginia in November of 2012

image I took this with my Android; It was a view of the ocean, between the wooden planked fence, from back in the era, on the Island of Jamestown. I have another picture, that is simular, but I like this one better.

The start of another exciting adventure!!

Here I sit, next to my Husband, in our GMC truck. We are driving to Va., on a .5O business .5O pleasure trip. We left the house about 010:00 this morning, it will be about a 10 hour drive for us. I absolutely love the drive, its always so real, and beautiful. This will be my first time going to Va. at this time of the year. We have both been to Virginia, together. Heavens, my Husband was born and raised in Va. So this is nothing new for him, I am glad he knows his way around, because I don’t! Lol!
  Whew! Its FREEZING outside! I think they said it was 30* at 4 am, this morning, when I was still up, packing & cleaning house. I didn’t to bed, until about 05:45, and 5 minutes later, my Husband texted and said he was headed home early, so I just stayed in bed, and waited for him to come home. We ended up saying we were going to get up, in an hour, and leave by 09:00. Ha Ha Ha! Yeah. Right! We totally messed that up! Well, the good thing is, that we are on the road, and well on our way.

NATIVE AMERICAN SWEETHEART III

As most of you know, I have been working on a custom piece, of a native girl, for a dear friend of mine. I have been sacking on finishing her up, and posting my progress, in the past few weeks, but I have had a change of heart on some of the details, so I decided to redo her, and here’s is the latest. I still have a lot to go, but this is a pretty good bit, If I may say so.
