Larsen-Winchester Lions Club, making a wheel chair ramp...

Category: wheelchair ramp | Posted: Fri May 25, 2012 4:27 am

My Mom had a stroke a few years ago...she was walking better but now is getting weaker so my husband and I decided it was time to get a ramp to get her in and out of the house easily...I think she really enjoys it by the last picture of her with the group that built it. Thank you so much Larsen-Winchester Lions Club..

The temperature was in the high 80's and 7 members came to build it for free. You pay for the wood and then when we don't need the ramp , they re-use the wood for another person...

A brighter place now....

Category: Tatouage/ rub on transfers | Posted: Thu Mar 03, 2011 8:31 pm

I have my sewing room/ironing room downstairs at my home. I wanted something to make it fun and to use the things I like. Of course that included birds and flowers.

I started this project over a year ago and decided to make a few changes to it...I found the wooden birds at a street fair in Waupaca, wi....In fact I had the birds first and then decided to incorporate a scene with them.

Tatouage is a rub on transfer and you can buy different scenes or murals. I thought about what I wanted on the wall and decided to add the birdhouses and branch...this was my result. I added the tatouage flowers separately too.

Now when I go downstairs to my room to work...I get to see a little whimsy of things I love. In fact there isn't any time that I go down there that it doesn't bring a smile to my face.
