Welcome To My Blog

Just a little about me.....I'm a stay at home mom of three children....17, 11, and 4. My Dear Husband works hard for our family as a truck driver. In my free time I love to scrapbook, sew, read, and most of all spend time with my family.

My hope with this blog is to share some of the things that I enjoy and through that I learn what you enjoy.

September 11th

♥ For the husband who told his wife I love you one last time before his plane went down in a field ♥ For the wife who stopped in the stairs to call her husband to say I will love you forever ♥ For the mothers and fathers who kissed their kids goodbye the morning they died ♥ For the policemen who rushed in with the firemen to help get others out only to die themselves ♥ For the soldiers who fought back and lost their lives. ♥ today, tomorrow, ten years from now, we will remember...

This has been floating around and reposted....I feel that it basically sums my feelings for 9/11....So many things changed on that day. And sitting here 10 years later it still hurts as though it was yesterday....gone but never forgotten.
God Bless America

Happy 60th Birthday Dad

I know I have been a very bad blogger....but the good news is that my all of my kids are in school so now I am finding time to craft....which means I can find time to share....And hopefully more often!

Today is my dad's 60th birthday and this is the card I made for him....and since it has been so long I have shared anything I figured I would start with this. I hope that you enjoy the card...and if you happen to have any questions just leave me a comment.....and look forward to more posts and more crafts!! Brandy

Yes I am here...And yes I am alive
I'm sorry...I know I have been very bad and not keeping up to date my blog....There are a lot of things going on in my life right now that make it hard. It puts crafting and the blog at the bottom of the list. My hope is that within the next few weeks that will change.

We all go through things...it's just my turn. I hope that all is well with all of you. If I make anything I will share it with you...Thank you Brandy

Happy Valentine's day to all my blogging friends...I hope that you all have some one wonderful to spend it with. I am lucky enough to have my very best friend of almost 15 years coming home to me any minute.....On the 20th of this month we will be married 12 years....and every single day I love him more and more. We truly are best friends and there is nothing I can't tell him. I am so lucky to have him in my my life

We have like a triple play in February; my birthday, Valentine's day and our anniversary so my husband said the way we can celebrate it (totally his idea) is to go to the Scrapbook Expo at the Anaheim Convention Center February 25-27th......Man do I have a great husband....I'm really going to have to do it up for him for his birthday!! I love you Dean!!

Baby Shower Invitations

My really really really (lol) good friend Kaija is have a baby and I am throwing her baby shower. I think the day she found out she was pregnant I asked if I could throw her, her shower.....we just had to wait until we knew what she was having.....because like me she just has to know. Well she found out she is having a little boy and he is going to be named Noah.

I also asked if I could make he shower invitations....she said sure...and so this is the result. Of course when I first took the pictures and was ready to post I realized I had all her information on it including her phone number since it is going to be thrown t her house....so I had to retake the pictures.

She is doing Noah's room in browns, greens and blues....so those are the colors I tried to stick with. I showed them to her today and she loved them....so I guess as long as she is happy I did a good job.

Hope everyone is having a great night....I'm off to make dinner....Hugs, Brandy
