Bloggerette Sorority!!!!

HI, my name is Jamie and I have joined the Sisters in the Bloggerettes Sorority hosted by Karen over at Some days are diamonds!!!I live in Gilbert, Arizona. I never went to college, as I got married 9 days after I graduated from High School. Married my best friend and we just celebrated our 34th wedding Anniversary!!!My daughter was in a Sorority and I always thought she had so much fun in it and she is still very close to all her "sisters"!!!!Here I am holding my RUSH PROJECT, I made it very quickly as I completely forgot about RUSH Day, and this past week I had my sister and BIL at my house, and I also had to babysit my Grand daughter 3 full days!!!!Rarely do I get that honor!!!!haha I also was sick with a sore throat and headache, I will not complain after talking with one of my neighbors, they have been sick with a stomach bug all week, so NO complaints or excuses from me!!!!SO here it is!!!
I took a plain unfinished wood plaque and painted it my favorite color Red, took some stencils I had and stenciled a little curve design on it and then took the photo and decoupaged it on to the wood. Then I added a few stickers and ivory colored fabric flowers!!!
It now sits on my antique sewing machine in our bedroom where alot of my treasures from other blogger sisters gifts are!!!
I'm so excited to get to know all of you my NEW SORORITY SISTERS!!!!
Let the fun begin!!!

ADORABLE creation here, Jamie!!! Way to go. I love it.
Hey, great news...the colander came from TJ Maxx just a couple of weeks ago for only $7.99. I got it for Sara's future kitchen. Guess what her wedding colors are.....aqua and cream! Oh the fun.....
So glad you had a wonderful visit with your sister and BIL. : )

Congratulations Jamie on your new Sorority status! I too never belonged to one, never really understood what they were all about. Sounds like you may be in for some fun though! Love your little creation, very pretty!

Way to go, Sister Jamie!! This was an awesome project for rush!

I wish I had my grandmother's tredle sewing machine. Boy, do I have fond memories of that! Nobody thought to keep it when she died. So sad. everybody throws it all out these days. Not me...I don't throw away anything. LOL

Hope your throat is feeling better. Could have been allergies...are the olive trees blooming??

Hi Mimi,

Adorable creation for your Sorority. And the face of your lovely grand-daughter is precious.

Just got over the stomach virus myself. Wow, that was horrible.

Have a wonderful week and thank you for your sweet comments on my blog.

The plaque is just lovely, and it is so sweet that it has found a home amongst precious gifts from other bloggers.

Charlene said...

I'm still working my way slowly down the "sisterhood" list, what a cute project you made--I need to learn to do decoupage!

That's a great creation Jamie. Sounds like your sorority will bring you many fun times. Hope you are feeling better by now. Hope you had a good visit with your family. Stella

Ok Jamie, you had my laughing and somewhat worried. Stalking! so I'm stalking you back sister. you are welcome to come to my blog any time. Cute rush project and even cute photo. I too get sad about Diana I remember everything about the day we heard the news. We were on hoilday in Devon and we came home a day before the funeral. The of the whole village was quite, not a sound. I cryed like a baby when I watched those two boys walk behind the coffin. Althought my husband and the two boys have become citizens I don't want to give up being English I am very proud of the fact.... must of the time except for now with the oil spill...anyway lovely to meet you~Wendy

Jenny said...

This sounds like a lot of fun!

I love your creation - it is really cute!

Marydon said...

G'morn, Jamie ~ That was a clever idea for your 'sorority'. Those kinds of titles never appealed to me, but it is cute being a bloggy sister ... you'll have fun.

TY for your sweet note on our 4th porch, it was great fun to put together with our new finds 'Love Is ...' glasses.

Happy & lovely 4th.
TTFN ~ Hugs, Marydon

So cute! Sorry to hear you've been sick. I'm glad you are feeling better. Looks like you've been up to a lot of fun the last few weeks. You are such a busy girl! I love it. It is always a party and life is so busy and fun all the time. Have a good 4th of July! I haven't seen you in forever. I'm thinking we need to do a play day when I get back. Take care and try to stay cool in this heat. Looks like you will have a good time with your new sorority sisters!
