Mother's Day

I had a wonderful day. I am so fortunate to have such a wonderful family. I received some beautiful flowers and I got a new wedding ring! It was a very good day.
I do miss my mom & mother-in-law even more on Mother's Day, but I just have to look at my kids to see both of them!

Just had to share the Jungle Cat!

Greeting Cards

I found these greeeting cards I made back in 1999. I had completely forgotten about them. Thought I would share them. Maybe I will try my hand at doing these again. Now there are so many new products!

This card was made with stamps and colored pencils.

This one was made by freehand drawing leaves with a fine tip marker then filling in the colors on mulberry paper.
The stroller was made from paper I had made and cut out in the stroller shape.

The following two cards were made with magazine pictures, stamps, inks, you name it, then trimmed with copper strips.

Old Items Found

About 4 years ago, when my parents moved into a retirement village, my husband and I bought their house from them. They were in their late 80's at the time and left everything that wasn't going with them. I wanted to share a few of the items I found back in some cabinets in the basement and in my mom's sewing cabinet.

Been Gone

Spring is so busy around my house! I have not had time to do much computering at all. It may have to do with my time management skills also, but I am working on those.
I have been busy at my torch making beads, creating new pieces of jewelry, knitting up bags and baby clothes, along with scuttling kids back and forth to all their events, along with working at the dental office. Life is full and we are so fortunate.

Today is going to be a catch up day. I am going to take some pictures to post and visit all the blogs I have ignored for the past month. I am looking forward to seeing all the wonderful things everyone has been up to.
