Christmas ornaments I made this year

This fall was very busy for me so I only made 2 ornaments this year. The Mickey Mouse ball was for my son, to represent our trip to Disney in November and the baby's feet were for my daughter-in-law for the birth of our sweet little Riley. The base of the feet are stones and the toes are little balls made from clay.

Nice Hair

July 2011 while we were waiting for the parade to start in Perrinton, it started to rain and of course being a boy you had to get wet. Mommy decided to fix your hair and we all loved it.

Our little Riley

It has been a long time since I have posted. Running to the nursing home every night and weekends takes up most of my free time. Mom comes home this Wed. so it should help with having more free time. I started this layout and it took me 3 days to finally get it finished. I covered cardstock with material for a softer look and added some material behind the photo. Thanks for looking.

A Poem

When I saw this poem I knew that I needed to do this layout.

Breaking the Pinata

The kids had so much fun breaking the pinata. Sure took a lot longer to break it than to make it.

Been awhile since I have posted anything

My mother fell and broke her ankle and had to have surgery on it. She is now in a nursing home going through rehab with lots of up and downs. So after work I go visit her every day and then go home to fix DH something to eat and seems like the day has come and gone way to quickly. I have been working on a few projects for challenges at Flying Unicorn but I had one big project I had to get completed before this Sat. I made a pinata for my grandson's b-day and hoping once you look at it that you know it is spiderman. I also made his b-day card and even though spiderman has really thick thighs, I think Tyler will like it. Thanks for looking and if your mother is still around give her a big hug today.

Fall Color Tour

Phil took me up north today for a color tour. I have always wanted to drive down the "Tunnel of Trees" and that is what we did today. It was just beautiful, Lake Michigan on the left and beautiful trees along a very narrow 2 lane road.

My final layouts for challenges at Flying Unicorn

This month sure has gone by quickly. Added to that fact and that I have been struggling with poison ivy that keeps recurring, I wasn't able to get to as many challenges as I would have liked to. Check out and see what the ladies are going to have in store for October.

Riley's first professional photo

For a challenge at Flying Unicorn. Needed to do a LO with "white space" and that is really hard for me to do but it was fun making the background paper.
