It's Football Seaon!! Look at my Georgia Bulldog Duct Tape Purse!!

Folks, I LUV ME SUM COLLEGE FOOTBALL....yes, I do! It started way back when I was in junior high and had my first "puppy love"! His name was Marc Fisher, and the only way my parents would let us "date" would be for him to come to our house on Saturday and spend the day. That would include my Mom cooking a red velvet cake, because that was mine and Marc's FAV, and watching college football all day. In our house my Daddy was a hunter, so every weekend he would be gone ...in the "da woods"...it was his way of relaxing after practicing law all week....and my Mom was the Football Fan!
So, I grew up watching football with my Mom, and those Saturday's with Marc and my Mom, were so special. Can you imagine a teenager now wanting to stay home with their parents and watching football with their boyfriends??!! If this happens in your life now..cherish it every time it happens. So of course, being from Georgia, I'm a Dawg Fan...yep, as in Georgia Bulldogs, as we say down south, and as Three Dawg Lady Designs!!
Most of you know I've fallen in love with decorative duct tape. I have made many designs so far, but yesterday I finished my Georgia Bulldog designs....

Are these not the CUTEST?? And of course with other collegiate tape, I can make other college designs. On the large one and the change purse size,  each one has a Velcro closure and I applied a vintage button on each.  Think I might have to keep one for myself!! Happy Friday and Blessings, Deborah

Dreaming of John!

Okay, you made me tell you...I'm 56 years old....do you know what that makes me? An "old hippie"! Yep, that right...bell bottoms, granny glasses, love beads....the whole nine yards...and of course I LOVED the Beatles. Especially John Lennon. Oh, I know...he may have said some things that made folks mad all those years ago...but he was a musical genius.

His music, his words, could reach inside of me and touch a place about life, and dreaming, and imagining a time when war was no longer here, and Peace reigned supreme. So, as I was sitting in my craft room the other day and wanted to paint something...and just didn't have any ideas...Imagine came on the radio.

I thought to myself....ok....a flashback tot he 70's, and here is what I like to cal Dreaming of John. Hope you like her.

I hope you like her as much as I do. Blessings to each of you, Deborah

It's that time of year....Planning for Halloween! PICS!!

Yes, I admit it...our entire family...Mom and Daddy...brothers, sisters, cousins, grandchildren...WE LOVE HALLOWEEN! So, I wanted to share with you about our Annual Minchew Halloween Extravaganza! Several years ago , about two months before Halloween, and as our father started getting sicker with his condition, we started talking about doing a huge Halloween decoration in our parents front yard. So, we 3 sisters.....can you hear the cackling???? We got busy....decoupaging heads....making scarecrows...building picket fences.....everything to make a HUGE Haunted House in my parents front yard.

By the time Halloween rolled around, it seemed everyone in town knew about it! The front yard was covered....So, we had a "test run" the night before, and gave out candy that night also. Well, when Halloween came around, it was awesome! But, before the night was out...the police set a patrol car to sit at the end of the street, because it seemed everyone in town was on our parent street.

So, I wanted to share some pics from that wonderful night, and I even changed my profile pic for the occasion....hope you enjoy.

This is a picture of my sister and I dressed as Fester and Gomez...this was several years before our BIG Halloween. ENJOY!!!

Followers..Please help me

Get more Followers. I'm trying so hard to get more followers....I post on every linky party I can find....I want to build up so I maybe can't get sponsors.....being disabled, and doing my crafts...can get expensive, so having a sponsor would be great.

If you could share my blog with your friends and followers....that would be wonderful. Thanks to everyone. Blessings to you this day, Deborah
