I am looking for some ladies in the New Jersey area that love primitive decor. I don't have any of my friends that are into and it was suggested to me by a FB friend to check out the blogs to see if there is anyone in my area. I live in South Jersey. If there is a someone please feel free to contact me. Thanks and have a great upcoming weekend.
Is there anyone out there that watched Dateline on NBC channel 10 in the NJ area? How devastating it was to watch this poor town with no jobs, homes, businesses or food. I cried through the whole show. Our wonderful president Barrack Obama should have been watching it and seeing how he is destroying our country. He is a disgrace. I am also tired about people commenting that he isn't liked by some because he is a black president. Well to all you people that think he isn't liked because he is black take another look, he is biracial, white mother, black father, stop using the race card for ever stinking complaint you have, enough is enough. Instead of him going on vacation and golfing he needs to take a look at what he has caused to our country, it is bankrupt, and now they want to raises taxes. How can any person pay anymore taxes that can't even get a job, because there aren't any. I can't wait for 2012 so him and Nancy Pelosi can get off their high horse and hit the road. Maybe he should have an infant child, a 1 yr old and a 2 yr old and live out of his car for a winter with no money or diapers and see how he likes it. Would he like it if his girls were in that situation, not at all. I need to stop, I am so mad. I am sickened by seeing that little Ohio town with nothing. These people are living in tents in the middle of winter, no heat, no money, no food, no job. You need to take care of the United States and the hell with the other countries, let them take care of themselves.
The card listed in this post is a card I made for one of my husband's co-workers that is retiring after 33 years of being a Registered Nurse and no less in the NJ State Prison. We have been invited to her retirement party that her daughter is surprising her with next week. I wanted to make something special for her. Rich told me that she loves vintage photos and the beach so I created a card with both. The flower that you see in this photo are all prima flowers except the center rose, which is an antique resin rose pin that I purchased at an antique store. I also have added a shell clipboard chip in the lower corner that is glittered and a few rhinestones on the lower left hand corner. I used stickles glitter to highlight the dogs collar and the ribbon around her hat. I think it came out great. If I was selling this I would have to easily price it at $6-7 dollars due to the fact that the vintage pin cost me $3.00, but well worth it. I hope you enjoy seeing this recent project of mine. You can also go to my site at www.designsfrommyheart.etsy.com to see my new Halloween cards just posted. I hope you all have a great weekend.

Attached you will see a vintage inspired paper flower made out of sheet music. I have added a music note brad to the center of the flower. This is just a peek at what I will be working on in the next few days. I love it. I hope you love it as much as I do. I will be making more of these within the week. Thanks for stopping by for a visit.
