Graduation (again!)

  Yes, this is the “official” graduation week, but now it is all over!  My neice graduated from a local school last night, a very LARGE local school, so we were very late getting home.  I usually work on the blog late at night before I go to bed, but I was too tired last night!  I am thankful for the last day of school (yesterday) and all the graduations are over!  Summer is officially…

Graduation Card

Good morning!  Yesterday was Lindsey’s Middle School graduation.  She is now an “official” high school student!  I am feeling a bit older today, now that I have TWO high school kids!  This card was made for Lindsey and I am making a few more (in the appropriate school colors) for my neice and some other friends.  I used some chipboard stars, colored them with White Craft Ink, and added the rhinestone brads for a feminine…

Happy Mother’s Day!

I hope you had a very Happy Mother’s Day!!!  We had a very nice day — went out to lunch with all of Charles’ family after church and then came home for a fairly calm afternoon.  I ended up taking the girls shopping this afternoon for some new shorts — the weather is getting hotter and hotter around here, so they thought they needed some new clothes!  Great excuse to get out and shop, huh??? …

Recipe Holder

  Good morning!  I am feeling a little under the weather — cold, allergy, sinus, something!  YUCK is the best way to describe it!   I am bummed because Charles and I are leaving town tomorrow for 6 days and I really do not want to feel sick!  Let’s hope it is just allergies!  I feel like that commercial where the head grows and grows and grows — are you familiar with that one???   So, I…
