      I agree, Catherine, a blinged up flamingo would be hard to part with. Although, I'm a bit too mature (as apposed to "old") to wear bling, I do like the looks of rhinestones on jeans. And I love the sparkly wedding décor. Thanks for your visit and comment, Catherine.

      What amazing craft ideas. If someone put that blinged up flamingo on my lawn, they would have to pay me to get it back. I don't think I would want to part with it. If I ever take a break from writing, I'm going to try these projects. Voted up U and I and B.

      You've really covered the bases here, Loraine. I don't do Bling, but these certainly look like fun projects. I'll keep these in mind when I get tired of quilting!

      Voted Up, Useful, and Beautiful.
