It's Freezing in Here!!!

Tessie has been sitting atop the house shaped book shelf watching "Charmed" all day. 

No.  I haven't gotten around to her new dress yet. The longer I put it off, the more I get done.

As soon as she is dressed, she will start running around complaining again. 

This way, all she complains about is being cold. I can cope with that.

My friend Jeannie found the needed ingredient for making the barrel purses again! All of the American brands of Tampax have been changed over to plastic applicators.  We have been looking for a substitute for years.

She found the cardboard ones at Dollar Tree!

The purse on the left is made with one of the old ones that Tampex used to put out.

These are Femtex and I suspect that they are getting rid of old ones with the cardboard applicators. Wherever they are made, the ladies are probably going to get new plastic ones.

Anyway, If you have a Dollar Tree store near you, these come in two sizes and are eight for a dollar.  They are also great for making bolster pillows.  I will try to run a couple of  tutorials for purses and bolster pillows soon, if anyone is interested
As for what I have been doing whilst Tessie watches "Charmed" today. I got her box painted white, inside and out.

I just need to fill in the window and door and paint that area.  Then I will be on my merry way to doing her dressing room.

Oh! And another tip.  The jar at the bottom is a sample from Lowes. It is just a few dollars and has 8oz. of paint in it.  Some of the Walmart stores here have sample jars too.  Good paint for a great price and you don't have to buy a gallon or even a quart.

I am going back to find out what other trouble I can get into today. Back to work.

See you tomorrow.

So you have figured out how to get her to stay still! What a powerful spell, this tissue thingy...I wonder how long until she breaks free, finds her magic thingy, and gets you under control again? Until then, have fun!

Hello Casey,
Thank you for the great tips! A tutorial on bolster pillows would be awesome.
I am glad Tessie is out of your way for a while...enjoy.
Big hug
