Liberty and Happy July 4th!

Coffee of the Day - Coconut Macaroon

Happy 4th of July to all of my fellow peeps here in the States! to everyone, happy day! I hope whatever today and the weekend may bring, make it happy and surround yourself with the people you love! :)

I have a small project to bring you today that shows just a glimpse of my love for this great country we live in! sure, like anywhere, it has it's negative aspects, but it is truly a most beautiful place!

I've used the Eagle with Shield image by Paulette at Create with TLC and printed it onto a piece of paper from the Authentique Pride collection. from there I cut a tag shape, adding a neat little reinforcement sticker from The Kraft Outlet. flower and trim at the bottom of the tag are both by Prima, buttons are vintage, red satin ribbon is May Arts.

I know it seems I go several days with no word at all, but I really am busy crafting 'in the background,' making projects for upcoming posts. so be prepared for lots of stuff to come! :)

also, I seem to have gremlins that inhabit pretty much everything techy I touch...... they have gotten hold of my FB friend list once again. thankfully some family members got in touch with me, (although they were NOT happy campers, I tell you!), asking why I had 'unfriended' them. I don't ever look at my friend list to see what the number is or who is on it, so didn't realize that the little gremlins had gone in and had a re-sort of my list.

do you have any idea how hard it is to look at a list and see who is missing? and then wonder, "gosh, is this part of the gremlin mess or did they unfriend me? do I send a friend request or not?" it's high school all over again.... sheesh...... so I have been trying to send out requests, but if I missed you, please please please do not take it personally. I am so human it is pathetic. I mess up all the time. it has nothing to do with YOU. just hit the little FB button over there on the right side bar and send me a new message. you will see that I am a whack-a-doodle over there, too. :)
