Bloggerette Sorority - It's a Rush!

I'm a sorority sister, and today we're having our 'Rush Party'.

I live in the beautiful state of Utah in the USA.
I'm a wife of 38 years, and mother of 4.
As a full-time homemaker, I spend my days
blogging, creating, and occasionally cleaning. lol

Our rush assignment was to create something using this image,
so I decided to create a Bloggerette crown.

I started with a piece of poster board which
 I painted on both sides with a vintage white acrylic.

Then, using mod podge, I loosely added lace
to both the inside and outside of the poster board.

Then I placed it in a lid to dry. This
makes it easier to form in a circle.


I punched holes and laced it closed.

Then, the really fun part....I start pulling out
all the fun stuff I can find, and add it to the crown.

And now, horror of horrors......

here is my required photo with my project.

Thanks Karen!







I'm excited to be a Bloggerette Sister!
Plans are being made for many fun activities,
and I can't wait to meet my sisters!

If you would like to join our sorority, visit

You can visit her blog to see more rush projects.


Go Bloggerettes!

Very cool crown Debi! My first thought was a crown too but just didn't have enough time left. Great minds think alike! LOLOLOL Nice to meet you.

DEBI!!!!!
A PICTURE!!!!! OH MY GOODNESS! I love it!
It's funny - I always picture you as "Marie A" from your sidebar. I love this picture much better! LOL!
The crown! GIRL! Course, anyone who knows you knows that you do everything just BEYOND gorgeous! And the crown is definitely BEYOND! Gasp! it is beautiful!
I'm sad we are not bead swap partners, but . . . maybe we need to do our own . . . let me get past this first big Sorority party, and see what you have going on in your life. Maybe a Fall swap?
Think on it!
Have a wonderful, wonderful day. Mine will be great because my internet is back up and running! YAY! That is always a good thing when you are hosting a party - don't you think? For the hostess to attend? I almost died when it was out last night t 6:30. (BIG FROWN!)
So today is catch up day for me!
Enjoy your weekend my Friend!
Big hugs! Karen

Mollye said...

Hi new sister! I am so happy to meet you and hope we become true sister friends in our sorority journey. I apologize up front that this message is a "cut and paste" message to all the sorority sisters because I wanted at least to become a follower of all of you and take a moment to say hello. For those who may not know my youngest son was killed last week and we buried him on Tuesday. I had started my project before that tragic event and am not finished but I did post what I've done on it so far. If you have visited me already I thank you and if not I invite you. I am just not quite at the point of being able to think of something to say individually at this time. I will soon hopefully be able to be active and visiting everyone. Love you already, Mollye
