Wizard of Oz ATC Blog Hop - Two Crazy Crafters

Today's the day to post our Wizard of Oz ATCs for Twyla & Lindsey's August blog hop. I've been running around all day, so just now getting to post mine. I've already seen some really good ATCs!  These blog hops are such fun! Thanks Twyla and Lindsey!

I love Graphics 45 papers, so was really happy to get this set!

Last October Karla of Karla's Cottage hosted a "Dorothy" Tag Swap. It's about time I show the tags I made and received for that fun swap!

Dorothy Tag Book

Debra's Tag (

Erica's Tag (

Holly's Tag (

Janet's Tag (

Karla's Tag - the Tag Book Cover (Karla's Cottage)

Sadly no name on this lovely tag!

Wendy's Tag 

My Tag!

We sent 6 tags & received 6 back + the cover.
Since I used the "bad witch" for this swap, I thought I'd use the "good witch" for my ATC for the blog hop. These faces were cut from a piece of Wizard of Oz fabric, stuffed a bit, poked through the "Over the Rainbow" sheet music & sewn around to look like they were bursting through the tag

Note: 9:30 pm Followers disappeared earlier today, but now they're back :) Isn't that strange?! 9:45pm - Now they've disappeared again!

Twenty Years Ago

Twenty Years Ago

I spent the whole summer making my daughter's wedding gown and veil.  Lots and lots of beads sewn onto beautiful lace, which doesn't show in this photo. The train with large bow in the back was attached with snaps so it could be removed for the reception after the wedding. What a special joy it was to have the opportunity to make both my daughters' wedding gowns! It was also such a special blessing that their Grandma Palmer was able to make their wedding bouquets and all the other wedding flowers.

Happy 20th Anniversary to Kathleen and Robert!
Best Wishes for many more years together!

Happy Birthday to Adam!

Happy 8th Birthday, Adam!

Combo Man

Little Hershey, 3 Musketeers, & Milky Way bars for the arms & legs - as requested by Adam!  A little cash inside!

A little book of photos '
"On the day you were born, everyone was happy!"

  Little quiltlet started when Adam was born! About time I finished it - probably won't want to hang it in his room now! Maybe we could make it into a pillow cover? All the fabrics except the solid green & the yellow gingham backing are from leftover scraps of items sewn for his mother when she was a little girl. Can't imagine why it took so long to finish!
