I LOVE teaching others to do art!

Once a year before Christmas time me and my friend host a Christmas Card making Party to teach others to handmake different designs of cards. It has been so fun, but last year we skipped it because planning ahead didn't happen. And the year before that my cards were a little too complex for others to want to learn... mind you they all did great and ended up LOVING their cards, but they thought I was crazy for putting so much work into the designs......

Well this year since I will be placing an order with Stampendous very soon I am deciding to plan ahead, and purchase some of their Christmas stamps in a hope to simply things a bit. I will just teach more stamping and less paper piecing, or sewing, lol! These are the ones I am planning on purchasing... let me know what you think. Which is your favorite? And which would you choose last?

You are Welcome

Yes I am still here :o) I know, I know, no good blogging award to someone who hasn't blogged in 10 days! Sorry ladies, I've just been feelin' a little under the weather here lately.

I do want to say I have been very blessed that people are noticing I am gone, and that I have been receiving such nice thank you's for the gifts I sent out from the Scrapbooking party. I am glad you are all so happy with what you have won.  

If you didn't participate in the Blog Party I had, here's a little bit of what you missed out on...

Happy Father's Day Joshie!

I thank God for the privilege of making you become a Daddy. You are so precious to me without the fact that you are the Father to my children, but by this God has given us and even deeper bound. Thank you for being such a sweet, loving and selfless Daddy. You are an inspiration to me and I know some day our children will be saying the same thing.

I love you with an irreplaceable love...

XOXOXO your wifie

Thursday's Thing

I haven't shared with you lately a thing that makes me do MMMM!

Well here it is... a wall of pictures.

I love to just stare over there every once in a while. I love seeing the growth of my children, just makes me heart skip a beat to see they will never be that small again.I also love the fact that even though my home does not have a fire place with a mantle to put pictures on my fish tank is a wonderful stand in :o)

A new Nephew!

I spent the whole day with my older sister today, it was wonderful. She is pregnant with her first baby and she told me she is going to be having a boy! :o) I can't wait, especially since she wants me to help her through her delivery no meds.
I have both of my little ones with no meds and I wouldn't do it any other way unless it was completely necessary. My hubby and I took Bradley classes before our girl was born. Bradley weights heavy on husband coached childbirth, and my husband did so well the Birth Home asked him jokingly what time they could put him on the schedule for the next week :o) I only hope I will be a great help to my sister :o)

I finally finished

My Client's Mardi Gras themed Retirement album. It was a tough one because I had to think of creative ways to use Green, Purple and Gold over and over and over and over and over again. Finishing this album was on my tackle it tuesday list 8 weeks ago, so I am overjoyed to have it completed now. 

Here's a peek at some of my work...
