Today’s Scrapbook project is page #6- in my Holiday Craft Album.My son enjoying the Snow.
I started back doing some Project Life pages – But I already had a lot of 12×12 clear album pages. So a little DIY with my Sewing machine. I made my own pocket pages. First I marked off where I need pockets. Then I sewed on the lines making the pockets & then filled them.With a great page kit : Wintery by Authentique – Celebrating the first winter snow through the eyes of my son. Even shoveling snow is fun to him. Lisa

Hello Wednesday ! Last Wednesday of November it’s been a busy month. Hope you enjoyed all the Fall project – and Next week we will be Christmas /Winter. Iam not for rushing the Seasons so here’s some last minute looks as we finish up the month -It’s Field Trip Time.. Lisa
It’s local History time & we discover Native Americans : where they lived,eat,played games and the history of the trees & forest. Nothing like a fun group of kids learning about culture & nature. Thanks to the Park Service.
Can You Eat Acorns?
Many insects, birds, and mammals metabolize tannins with fewer ill effects than do humans. Species of acorn that contain large amounts of tannins are very bitter, astringent, and potentially irritating if eaten raw. This is particularly true of the acorns of American red oaks and English oaks.
This is a great post about Eating Acorns / Collecting Them – Eating Acorns Facts
A Project Life page -about the local tree & food sources found in nature . Lead by park employees. Thanks Jane.

- Fabric ( cotton fat quarter)
- Dish towel
- Typing paper for making a pattern /but you can free hand it.

Cut out two from material & sewed right sides together leaving a spot open to turn, Then turned -sewed bottom straight edge to folded towel – Folded over made button hole & attached button. Perfect to hang on stove or anywhere with handle. Lisa

Today Craft post starts with two great books – a Crafty mystery & a Thanksgiving craft book -So lets get Crafting. I am a little behind in my Crafting but plan on seeing something new soon. Lisa
When Anastasia Pollack’s husband permanently cashes in his chips at a roulette table in Vegas, her comfortable middle-class life craps out. She’s left with two teenage sons, a mountain of debt, and her hateful, cane-wielding Communist mother-in-law. Not to mention stunned disbelief over her late husband’s secret gambling addiction, and the loan shark who’s demanding fifty thousand dollars.
Anastasia’s job as crafts editor at American Woman magazine proves no respite when she discovers a dead body glued to her desk chair. The victim, fashion editor Marlys Vandenburg, collected enemies and ex-lovers like Jimmy Choos on her ruthless climb to editor-in-chief. But when evidence surfaces of an illicit affair between Marlys and Anastasia’s husband, Anastasia becomes the prime suspect.
Through easy-to-follow instructions and step-by-step illustrations, this book shows readers how to make Thanksgiving crafts and decorations using everyday objects and craft materials. Activities and games are also included, as well as a brief description of the holiday.
My #8 day of Thank go to my family & friends for support with all things. Lisa
