Congradulations to my beautiful son! We are very proud of you. You graduated with high honors, and that is such an accomplishment! Thanks for being the wonderful boy you are, and stay close to us always! Love you!
It sure feels like a Monday to me! I will be confused all day and all week! Well this starts the week of the next to the last week of school. My boy graduates on Friday, and I hope I make it thru that day. He is my second child, and that boy was glued to my hip till he was about 10 years old. He has turned into a young adult so quickly, but yet, he is still very close to his dad and I. He is very opinionated, strong willed, but he is still my baby. I still have 2 more in school Angela Elizabeth will be in 7th next year, and my little baby Nicholas willbe in 2nd. But David graduating really hits me in my heart. Anyway, I hope to have some pictures if he'll let me take them! Meantime here are a few things I wanted to share.
Those are some boxes I made to put some Avon gifts in for a few people I need to have a little gift for. The bird and flower are made from templates from Paperwishes. I love those templates. I have a Cricut, a Big Shot, a Cuttlebug, but still love to cut things out with scissors once and a while. I love how these boxes turned out....
This is just a little t light votive holder I made, again with the paperwishes bird embellishing it. I will be making a whole bunch of these for my daughters shower on July 18. They will be a little gift for the bridsemaids to take home with them.
Well, I hope you all have a wonderful Memorial Day weekend! Mines was not long enough, but summer is coming and there will be many long summer days ahead! Have a great day! Hugs, !
It has been a long time. I have alot to share, but I will share in two posts. First look at Sally and Will together on my couch. I was sleeping there and got up for a minute and came back and found them both. Sally looks less than happy about me snapping her picture....
I also got a couple stitcheries done, and stuffed them into little pillows for decorating with. I got the snowman pattern from Oldetime stitchin, a wonderful place for really nice prim patterns. The other I got from a free pattern site.
At the end of this week, my second child graduates from high school. I am already crying about it! I can't stand it! He is not 18, and is not graduating! I cannot beleive it! We will be having a small party on Saturday. He really didn't want a party, but it is also my youngest birthday, will be 8, and so we decided to have a small party. I'm doing all the cooking. I hope the weather is nice! Well, I'll stop by tomorow with a few more things to share. Happy Memorial Day to all! God Bless the U.S.A.!
Since I've updated my blog. I have some projects finished that I would like to post soon as I get some batteries for my camera. In the mean time I would like to leave you with some family pics that I have. Enjoy....
I'd like you all to meet the new addtion to our family! His name is Will! He is a Yorkie/Shitzu mix. Is he not adorable! He is less than a lb. at this point. Sally is afraid of him! She hate when he starts whining, she goes over, looks at him, and he will start walking toward her, and she takes off. She is so cute when she does that! Anyway, my friends dog had a litter of 6 puppies, one was a girl, the rest were boys. This was the only one who looks most like the yorkie, so I picked him! She pretty much gave him to me, because we are friends, and she wants to be able to see him all the time, so he is a shared puppy! I needed this like I needed a hole in my head, beleive me! Sally is enough work for 3 dogs, but I just had to have this one! The kids love it. The poor dog will never have to walk, because they carry him around all day. Great, another one that will not climb steps! Sally will not, except for the 2 porch steps, and she flies up those. She will not climb any other stairs, not even for scooby snack! The vet says, alot of dogs have height issues, mostly smaller dogs, like her. It's actually kinda nice, when a repair man comes or something, you can put her up stairs, and she will not bother the guy who is fixing the sink! My other dog, Terry, used to get up under whatever someone was fixing, and lay there, till I had to drag him out by his collar, and then he would whine the whole time, because he wanted to play with the plumber! Luckily, our plumber was a friend, and he would laugh about it! Anyway, I hope you like Will, we do! Pray my son Nicholas does not squeeze him too hard, because he is afraid he will drop him, so he squishes him to his chest and the poor things eye's bulge out! Goodness, it's been a weekend! Hugs to all! Michelle
Wow, I'm sure there are alot of you who got dumped on this past Friday/Saturday. We were only to get 8-12, we ended up with over 24 inches. Many friends in my neighborhood do not have power. I fortunately do, and I feel badly that I do. I'm warm, have lights, furnace, and my friends are worried because they are told it may be 5 days till the power can be restored. I offered help, and so far all I have been able to do is charge some cell phones. I dont have much room, but I would like to help in some way. I offered my freezer to my friends whojust did a big grocery shopping with alot of expensive meats, since they had gotten thier income tax check, they shopped big. I told them there is room for thier most expensive things, to please bring it over. They will today. I cannot beleive how bad that storm was. It was worse than the blizzard of '93. We actually got 36 inches of snow that time, but for some reason this one caused much more problem, they say. I hope where ever you are, you are warm, and have power. I am going to post another post, hope you'll stop in to see it, its a cutie!!! Hugs, michelle
I am mom to 4 kids, a dog named Sally and a hubby named Dave. I love to do all sorts of crafts, baking, some cooking. I am treasurer of my schools P.T.O., which is a pretty intersting non paying job! I work very part time as an Assistant to the Librarian at my local library. I love to listen to music on Youtube while working on the computer. My tastes vary from Elton John to Alice Cooper! I am eternally in love with the 80's music, my kids have learned to put up with it or else! My youngest loves to sit here and listen to music with me!
