I have always loved to take craft classes ~ they are always so much fun !!
But... sometimes it is hard to get to them because of the time they are offered or various other reasons ~ so I have been thrilled to find wonderful E-tutorials of beautiful projects ~
These are 2 ladies that I have purchased tutorials from and can tell you that the projects are great and the instructions are so good and very easy to follow ~ best of all is that you can do them on your time frame and see the pictures and directions as many times as you want ~
The first place that I just adore is Dawn at "Lessons from the Nest" ~
A few of the lessons she has to offer are silver sugar bowl pincushions, a fairy in a jar artwork, altered compostion books and many more ~
Margo at Robojunker.com has just started offering E-tutorials and she has soldered jars, china swags and wreaths and more ~
Make sure and check out both of these fun sites !!
Have fun crafting !!

I got these most precious bunnies in last week and think they are just darling !
Even though it isn't spring yet, I always feel like spring is just around the corner when the Christmas decorations come down ~ We have some precious new Easter and spring items in our Holiday Boutique and these are some pictures of the bunnies ~
We sold out of our first bunch of them but we just got more in today !!

Well we are off the cruise and on our way to drop Stephanie, our daughter, off at Disney World ~ Half of our family had to go back home for work so it is just me, Steph and her boyfriend Josh ~
One of the ports that we went to was Progresso and there we took an excursion to Uxmal, one of the large Mayan Ruins ~ It was so incredible to see it !! We all really love history so it was fun to be on a tour so we could hear some of the Mayan history and also Yucatan history ~
This is us climbing one of the pyramids ~ I hate heights so I thought I would freak out but it wasn't too bad ~
From the left is Josh, my son in law James, daughter Kristin, me, daughter Steph and hubby ~
Well my laptop battery is running out so I will post more later ~

We are on vacation until Jan. 12th ~ Our first day we went to spend a day in New Orleans because we are cruising out of New Orleans ~
This is a picture of the French Quarter ~ I love the buildings here because of the colors and the architecture ~
I am not thinking we will have internet access while we are on the ship but I will post pictures when I can ~
Have a great week !!
