A New Venture.

Well I have an announcement to make. I've been thinking about it for quite awhile now and the time seems right to start my own Paper Piecing/Layout business. As of last night Keepsake Ave. Creations is open for business. If you've seen a paper piecing or layout on my blog that you'd love to have, give me a shout out. Layouts I can recreate, I can make them similar (I may not have the pattern paper available). Individual paper piecings can be made to order, color & size can be changed if needed.

You can follow me on Facebook at Keepsake Ave Creations. You can send me email at I would love to hear from you.

I can't post and not share a project so this is one I did recently.

This is my son at 2 with two cousins. These boys were so happy eating their suckers while hanging out in the camp chairs. I wish moments like this could go on forever.

Have a wonderful weekend!

Another Monday Challenge

This weeks challenge is to alter a picture frame. Here's what I did with a $1 frame from Micheal's.

I used the Snuggle Bunny collection from Little Scraps of Heaven Designs.

Be sure to stop over at the Design Team blog to see all the wonderful creations we've come up with to inspire you this week. 

There's also a wonderful SALE going on over on the LSHD website.

While you're over there you may see some wonderful new patterns. Here's a couple of my favorites. 

I'm heading out of town for a week of SUN on the warm beaches of Gulf Shores Alabama. If I am able I try to post so you can enjoy the sights and sounds of the Gulf.

Happy Easter Everyone!
