The papered soaps did not look all that special just sitting there on the beige shelf in the bathroom. So yesterday on my weekly trip to Jo Ann's I bought a paper mache box. I covered it in between rain storms and power outages. I wonder what I will do when Jo Ann's does not carry my favorite black paper?
After drawing the little flowers on a piece of white paper I was quite surprised when I opened the closet door to get my markers, to find that they were missing! How could that be, they have been there for years! Ah, my daughter was home this weekend and I was not. It had to be her! I have had my markers for seven years, where could they be? She brought them to a friend's house................great! They will be back in the house and safely put back in their place by Saturday. If not, well I won't even go there! I found a few highlighters to fill in the flowers, so things turned out well. I am off to get a haircut and do a little food shopping. The rain has finally stopped and I can go outside today!

I have to get back into the swing of papering everything in my house. So today, while cleaning I noticed these bars of soap in the bathroom. If they do not say paper me, I am not sure what does. We have all seen the soap bars that have packaged in pretty paper at the cute boutiques. Well , my soaps are as good as any other soaps, they deserve a little papering!
I must say this is a simple paper project that can be done in minutes. I think it would make a cute hostess gift. My soaps needed a little birdie to make the project just a little more, let's say special!
I am looking forward to visiting all my favorite sights tonight. I am having blog withdrawals!!!

We are heading up to New Hampshire for a long weekend. When I say we, I mean my husband and two other couples. This is where we will be staying. It looks great on the internet. We have been to this area before but we have never stayed at this hotel. I want to take a lot of pictures to share with everyone. I am not sure when the last time I was away from my computer for a few days. This should be interesting! No blogging, no blog reading, no paper crafting. Um, maybe my computer should not stay home alone. Think of all the trouble it could get into without my supervision. I hope you all have a great weekend. See you all late Tuesday night!

I was just about to make a card for my father's birthday when I found this card that I made a few years back. I put down the scissors and glue gun, no card making today. This card is perfect for him. Now, I will have time to make a cake and not spend all morning fussing about what kind of card to make. Really, how does making a simple card possibly take an hour!

Went to the beach with my daughter today. Brought some of my favorite things with me, still trying to finish this book so I can move onto another. Carla Neggers is a mystery writer. Most of her stories take place in New England, so I find them very interesting. It was very hot at the beach! The temperature was in the eighties and not a breeze or a cloud in the sky. I mean hot! So much for cooling down by the shore. Oh well, we still had a nice day.

This is a little piece of a wind chime that I have hanging under the pergola. Unfortunately, we live at the bottom of a hill and there is seldom enough wind to make the wind chime move. It has been in the same place for five years, I have heard it twice! But it does look pretty there.
