Welcome to my Blog!

So many of my friends have said to me, "Betty, you should have a Blog, it's so easy to do".

Here's my attempt at Blogging. My name is Betty (aka Scottie), I'm from North Carolina. I've been involved in a variety crafts over the years, computer crafts, machine embroidery. I enjoy making cards, boxes, bags and items for the home. Here you will find some of my projects (past and present).

Happy Mother's Day

This is the best ever!!! What a wonderful Mother's Day it is!!!!
Kelly is my little "Imp". When she was about 2 everyone called her "mini me". She even tried to rearrange the furniture in her room at such an early age. By 4, Kelly was walking around with my cane and an old heat pack wrapped around her...LOL. What fond and funny memories.
Kelly, pretty much knows how to use all of my equipment and programs. Well, yesterday Kelly asked me how to shape flowers, I showed her how. Then she asked me to put a piece of paper down on her card, heck that's tricky even for me. I had to print out the words for the front, but she did all the rest. I thought I would die laughing, (but had to hold it in) when she finished the card, she told me that I didn't have to act surprised tomorrow.
OK it's now the day of the BIG reveal!!! Kelly and Hubby took me out for Dinner, the food was so good. But probably the best part of the Day was the card Kelly made me. It was absolutely beautiful!!!!!!! Want to see it? Ladies, I have some serious competition!!!

Finally crafting again!

Those of you of that create your own files don't get all the credit that you deserve. I won't name names...you know who you are. Creating SVG's that will actually work can be pretty difficult and time consuming....at least for me it is!

Isn't it the pits when you can't do any crafting, I haven't been able to do much of anything lately. Even though I'm still not up to par, I decided to see if I could make something new....something totally different from anything I've made so far. It wasn't easy! It took several attempts and several different styles before I was satisfied. So I went through my scraps, just had to see if my idea would actually work.
Here's the prototype of what I came up with. That's right it's a shoe! What do you think?
