Out of hibernation!!

Well I know it's been over 2 months since my last post... My bad. I have been busy celebrating birthdays and hibernating with the yucky weather!! I made Dillon a Dr. Who cake and iPod case and have been busy making 600 cookies for a wedding! I just recently got asked to paint some wine glasses for another wedding..which of course has inspired me to do some more.. stay tuned for updates on that lol. Well hopefully I will get back to blogging more regularly.. thanks to those who are still reading!

Until next time...Debbie

Etsy Update Soon!

Well I have been busy trying to get some stuff done so I can open my Etsy Shop again. Here is a sneak peak at a few of the items I will be putting in the shop. I am hoping to get it back up and running again within the next couple of weeks. I will keep you posted!
Fortune cookie knitting stitch markers. I am not really sure why the picture is sideways as it was normal when I loaded it? LOL.

Chocolate chip cookie stitch markers...calorie free!

Yummy cake stitch markers! And again, I have no clue why it ended up upside down?

And of course it wouldn't be complete without my owls.

Hope you have a great day!

Until next time ...Debbie

Instant Gratification

As most of you know I suffer from attention deficit disorder when it comes to my crafts...lol..so I love when I can start and finish a project in less than an hour...ta da!!! I was looking through Etsy last night and came across this little cutie, so naturally I had to order the pattern and give it a go! How cute is he? I think I am going to make some more "natural" looking ones with some browns, beige, etc. and see how he looks?
I hope everyone has a great weekend!
Until next time ...Debbiexxoo

At your fingertips?

As some of you might know, I am taking a part-time Spa Esthetics course (well trying to). I signed up for the manicure course in the fall and it got cancelled due to low enrollment! So I have taken the waxing course which was fun and I ended up with 96%!!! whoot!!! So...the manicure was scheduled to start again on January 30 and wouldn't you know it, I got the dreaded call Monday night stating it had been cancelled again...grrrrrrrrrr...I was so disappointed. At this rate, I may be 60 by the time I get the course finished. Anyway...I love, love, love doing nails and I guess I am just going to keep plugging away at my nail portfolio. I do believe the pedicure course starts in March so we will see how that pans out?? keep your fingers crossed.
Here are a few designs I did last night. The facebook one really isn't dripping, I think it is the lighting or something? lol...

PS-what do you think of the name for a nail artist/manicurist business "At your fingertips"??

BOOK REVIEW You really can't click to see inside, I just cut and pasted this picture from the internet. So I have decided I am going to add a "book review" section to my blog every time I am finished reading a book. You know it is a funny thing, I never ever read before, not even in school..hating reading! Now for the past few years (maybe close to 10?) I read every night before I go to bed...or should I say "before I go to sleep" lol...anyway...I loved, loved, loved this book. I would highly recommend it!!!!

Until next time ....Debbie

Psssst I am back

So I know it's been a while since my last post but to be honest I wasn't really sure anybody was reading this anyway? With the persuasion of a few people, I am back! I am posting this from my iPhone so not really sure how this will turn out?

I have been busy the last few months. I am not sure where these pics will end up once I post so I will try and recap. I have been dabbling in clay, baking cookies, finished Dillon's mushroom blanket, been painting, and got a snowflake tattoo!!!

I have added a Facebook page Debbie does cookies so "like me" on Facebook. I will be adding more pics of cookies on there soon!

Okay well I am about to save and post this so we will see how it works? Please check back with me as I will be posting more on a regular basis!!

Until next time...Debbie xxoo

Farewell Pine Valley 1970-2011

It is a sad day at my house today! All My Children airs the last episode today. I have grown up with AMC. I remember going to my grandmother's house when I was sick, or during the summer and watching it with her. I remember watching it as a teenager and watching it as a young mother. I cannot remember a time without it? I am truly going to miss it!

PS> Yes I am back. It has been a long time since my last post. Check in from time to time as I may just surprise you with some posts!

Until next time ...Debbie

Happy 19th Birthday!

Happy 19th Birthday Dillon!!! WOW...that is just crazy that my third child is 19 years old today. I can remember like it was yesterday. As most of my followers are from the States, here in Canada, 19 is the legal drinking age, so we are off to the bar tonight with our son...hehehehe

I asked my son this question last night and his response was 12. My own response, 16 on a good day, 18 on a bad day....I guess you are only as old as you feel? I would really like to hear from people...please let me know, how old would you be??

I hope everyone has a great weekend. There is the big yarn/spinning show in town tomorrow...guess you know where I will be?? LOL.

Until next timexxooDebbie

A face only a mother could love?

Well it is almost April!!!! Yah!! Springtime is coming! Spring is my favourite time of the year and it is dragging its ass this year? Well Dillon's birthday is in a couple of weeks and instead of making granny squares for his mushroom blanket, the craft A.D.D. has kicked in again and I have been dabbling in other things. OMG how cute is this little bandana? We are going to Mark's "new father's" house on Sunday and I am going to make one in pink for his little poodle Victoria...hehehehe.
Gotta love that little snaggle tooth!!
I hope everyone is having a great week and enjoying the sunshine!

Until next time xxooDebbie

Yarn Challenge Time Again!

It's that time of year again. Soper Creek Yarn Store is holding its annual yarn challenge. If you follow my blog you will remember last year I made the Olympic ring scarf. Well this year we have four colours to work with and of course I couldn't resist making an owl. So if you are in the Bowmanville area, go and vote for my owl!!! Thanks!
I hope everyone is having a great week!
Until next time xxooDebbie

I'm Back!

WARNING: Picture overload. Of course they are in no particular order because I still haven't figured out how to put them in order...lol.

Florida was awesome!! The weather was beautiful everyday. Mark got to go to the Daytona 500 Race-check that off his bucket list!!! My daughter got married!!! We went to Disney, Harry Potter World, Universal Studios and then unfortunately, we had to come home to the cold again. A week is definitely not long enough :( I am saving my pennies to go again next year!!!

We got home safe and sound and throughout the week all four of us ended up with the flu! What a way to end a vacation?

Yes we are tourists...lol...We have never seen a pringles machine before...hehehe

I am still in long sleeves and jeans...had just starting shedding the winter coat and boots. LOL!

The pool at the house.

My daughter's wedding day!

The house...sooooooo nice!

Me and Mark♥

No explanation needed? hehehe

Welcome to Kwik-E-Mart

I hope everyone is having a great week. I am finally starting to feel back to "normal"
Until next time xxooDebbie
