| WELCOME BACK: It sure was tragic news about our astronauts last weekend. As you'veprobably noticed from many of our articles we really like keeping an eye onthe space program. While it's true that a lot of people didn't even knowthat we had seven astronauts in space along with the three in theInternational Space Station we were well aware of it. It really hit us hardand were sort of in shock for a couple of days. Our hearts and prayers goout to the families and close friends of all these heroes. |

SITE OF THE WEEK
As a kid I use to love doing paint by number art. My grandparents had acocker dog called Snorkey and I once found a paint by number picture thatlooked like that dog. I still have that picture and here's a photo of it.
Not bad for young boy.
This weeks site is a paint by number art site thatwe've been having a lot of fun with. Not only is it a lot of fun for thekids but it's a great way to relieve stress after a tough day. You can spendhours filling in the colors to see what the finished pictures look like.We've done several and they've all been fun. Mark Feldman who has this site says "SegPlay is a fun, free, and challenging interactive artistic experience which allows you to color in detailed patterns of photographs and well known art images, without lifting a paint brush or crayon. Its the largest collection of Paint by Number patterns on the Internet".

Spring Place Setting
Spring will soon be upon us and nothing makes a table more festive than these pretty spring place settings. I made these for my sister Susie's birthday party but I won't tell you how old she is.
Here's what you'll need;
Press the foam into the pot.
Using the Tacky glue attach some Spanish moss to the top of the foam.
Add your flowers. You may have to cut them down and wire them using floral picks.
Glue the saucer onto the bottom of the clay pot using ceramic glue.
Write the persons name on the Popsicle stick and poke it into the foam.
It's just that simple and these really do dress up a table at your party.
We hope you enjoy Marilyn's Corner and look forward to all the fun things she brings you each week. If you have a fun project that would be suitable for our newsletter we'd love to share it with our readers. Just contact email@example.com and we'll do the rest.
