Happy Thanksgiving

It's Thanksgiving! Yay food!

What are you thankful for this year? I'm thankful for being able to put food on the table when so many are not able. I'm thankful for having a home and my family being healthy and safe. I'm thankful for all of you who follow me on my blog and Facebook. I'm thankful for all the new friends I have made through craft forums, blogs, Facebook and Etsy. And I am thankful for the soldiers who are keeping this country safe. I will keep them in my prayers so they can be back with their families soon. 

Let's not worry about calories and diets today. Eat to your hearts desire and have a wonderful time with friends and family.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone and God bless you all!

Death The Kid-Soul Eater Pillow

My daughter loves the anime Soul Eater and is totally in love with Death The Kid. She begged me to make her a pillow and of course she has a way of getting what she wants. This is what I came up with.

I had some printable fabric stashed away that I bought about a year ago and never used it.  This was a great way to try it out.

It was really simple to use and the quality was better than I expected.
First you print the photo you would like on the fabric. Once thats printed wait 15 minutes to let the ink dry and remove the paper backing. Rinse the fabric under running tap water for 30 seconds or until the water runs clear. Let it dry and iron if needed. Now you can use it on whatever project you like.

I used a paper backed fusible webbing and simply ironed it on to the fabric before sewing the pillow. So simple. I have forgotten how easy it is to make pillows. Must make more.

Thanks for stopping by.

OMG! I'm so excited. I entered Jennifer Perkins giveaway last week for the Bic Mark It Markers and I won.
I've been wanting to get these because Copics are too expensive. I can't wait to get them. I have so many digi stamps I want to color. I'm like a little kid on Christmas morning.

Home Made Truck Tent

During the summer time my husband saw a website for tents that will fit on the back of a truck. Like so....

Of course my husband has to make everything himself and gets me involved whether I want to or not. But I must say it was fun making something together. Here's our tent.

My husband used conduit for the frame, used a tarp for the tent and stretchy cord with hooks to keep everything nice and snug. The mattress in the back is specially made for trucks. I had no idea there was such a thing.

We did have fun camping. My daughter didn't want to go. She said the tent was embarrassing. So me and my hubby got some quality time together. That's always nice.
