Necklaces ~ Creative Day Thursday

Hi Sweet Friends!

I am finally back in the swing of designing again and wanted to show off some fun and created ideas I have been working on!

And as always, Enjoy!

Beautiful Valentines for You!

 Hi Sweet Friends,
Happy Valentine's Day to all of you! Here are a few of the Valentine Cards I made this year! I used this adorable Cupid Antique Valentine and printed it on a minella colored card stock. I did have to adjust the print a bit, but nothing too hard. 

I then used colored pencils to get the look I wanted. Shading and Tracing adds depth and the two cards differ in the bow & feather,  berries and the inside edge of the heart . I put a sweet sentiment on the back of each card and popped them off in the mail. Easy Peasy!

Here is the image from The Graphic's Fairy that I used in this quick project. Again, Have a Happy Valentine's Day! Take a moment out to enjoy the day, even if it is just you, grab a good book, a box of candy and get a bouquet of flowers to brighten your space!

You Can Do ~ Quick Fix

Hi Sweet Friends!Today we are fixing the toilet handle that broke! And YOU Can Do It Too!It is a simple fix that the plumber would charge you 1 hours work for a 5 minute (max) job!  Here are the tools that you will need. A Wrench(Monkey Wrench), your hands, and the new handle with the nut.
 OK, let's do this!
 Open the lid of the toilet tank and set it aside. Take the wrench and turn it counter clockwise (righty tighty, lefty loosey) to loosen the nut. Use your fingers to finish loosening the nut and slid it down the length of the handle bar.
 Lift the bar (the water does not need to be shut off)
and remove the clip that holds the bar to the chain. Don't drop the chain, just slip it into your hand to hold.
Take off the nut.
 Slip the old bar/handle out of the hole in the tank front.
 Put the new handle rod thru the hole in the front of the tank. Slip on the nut. Hook the clip/chain thru the desired hole (I measured the other handle to find out where it was before).
 Like this.
