It's His Birthday Today!!!

Today is my "baby's" 41st birthday!  Here we are in our much younger days:

A huge thank you to my friend Diane for recently sending me this memory!  I think he was about 2 in this picture and we won't even talk about how old I was - suffice it to say - much younger than I am now!

We are hip deep in holiday spirit, but way behind in our actual preparation.  Nothing new there and we will somehow get it all done.  I hope to be back here later in the week with some new class announcements and maybe some card shares from December's stamp camps.

Today the Denver Broncos play the New England Patriots - my favorite team will be sure to win!  

Thanks for visiting!

Happy Thanksgiving!


to all my friends and family in the USA!  We are expecting lots of friends and family to share this celebration with us today and are grateful for each and every one of them.  Our six grandchildren will all be here and that is always such a joy.  4 of our 5 sons will also be here - YAY!  In laws and outlaws will also be in attendance.  

The day dawned cold and windy, but as the sun comes up it appears that the skies are clear and so there should be no precipitation to make getting here difficult.

In this season of turmoil in our country, it will be good to have a day when we can all just enjoy the company of friends and family.  I don't get political on this blog, but to say I have been upset, angry and frustrated over the last few weeks is putting it mildly.  I, for one, will be glad of a day to just give thanks for what we do have while it lasts.

Thanks for visiting!

Tags, Tags, Tags!

At this time of year I always get totally caught up in making gift tags.  They are such a fun project to work on allowing for lots of creativity and they make up so quickly!  Here are some that I have been working on:




It is really cloudy and dreary here today with just a tad of rain (no snow today yet!).  The pictures don't really do these justice, but they sure were fun to make.  I used these instructions to make the little boxes.  Lots of fun and now I have quite a few door prizes to give away at my upcoming classes and camps.

First Snow and Some Shared Cards

Today we had our first snow of the season!  Here is the view out of my front door:

It is late in the season for this first snow event, but our farmers are very happy to have that moisture for their winter wheat crops. 

Last Saturday was the Sassy Chic stamp camp in Longmont, CO.  Here are the projects that the gals made:











A grand time was had by all and the food was totally amazing.  This annual holiday luncheon has become a great treat for all that participate.
