Back to the reality... of Snow for Spring Break

Well... we have been gone for a couple of weeks celebrating Spring Break with my family. We just got back to beautiful Southern Oregon thinking that finally we would have some nice weather... and low and behold it is snowing today. Once again, what ever happened to Global Warming because it sure hasn't affected my neck of the woods.

My next gazebo layout will be listed on Sunday - I tried to finish before I left however time just ran out on me. I even tried shipping a box containing the layout and other things to work on - I scheduled a pickup and waited and waited for it to deliver at my mom's house only to find out that it was still sitting on my front porch in the rain :) Evidently my postal carrier didn't want to make the trek up to my front doorstep to pick up my packages!

I am so ready for school to start again! With the bad weather the boys are stuck inside, running amok and causing chaos!

My Gazebo Collection...

Ok- this is FUN. Time consuming... but fun. Before I became ( I know bad grammar) a full time stay at home scrapper... I worked for Gazebo MFG company here in Oregon that specialized in Redwood Gazebos. I had a lot of fun helping to pick out the collection names, and even got to help in the design of our brochures. For trade shows... my job was to make the displays look beautiful. Needless to say, I know a lot about gazebos after 10 years of selling them, servicing them, etc. So- I decided to translate this knowledge into a paper pieced version of one of our most popular gazebos called the La Linda... above is the result, I love how it turned out! After listing this one on ebay, I had many requests for a wedding layout with the same gazebo concept so you will see my attempt at this above too! Keep your eye out for more of these little paper pieced structures... I have so many ideas for these!
