We are home! My daughter came thru with flying colors! It was a very long day and although she was scheduled for 12:45, we got there an hour early and were not able to go in until 4:00. She had no nap or anything to eat or drink all day. All the nurses and even other parents were remarking on what a good girl she is...we are so proud of her! We got home at 8:00, and she had something to eat and drink and was back to her silly self, singing and laughing! God is so amazing; He got us thru and we are so grateful it's over and so blessed she did so well! Thank you all for the thoughts and prayers that revolved around us and enveloped us all day!

I was helping my friend clean out her mom's house and ready it for new owners last week. We had a great time working together and got a lot accomplished. This bookcase I loved, it's old and rustic and her mom painted it herself a cranberry color. I asked what she would do with it and even offered to pay her for it, should she choose to get rid of it, and she just gave it to me! What a great gift, it was perfect in my kitchen! I'm not entirley sure what to do with it yet, I will probably buy some fake lemons, green apples and tomatoes and maybe some odd dishes...Her mom's house is near the water, beautiful place, and her gardens were hard to resist photographing. I thought I'd share some of the beauty.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO MY AUNTIE WHO LOVED WILD FLOWERS AND BIRDS, SINGING, PAINTING, SHOPPING, WORSHIPPING HER SAVIOR, ACTING CRAZY!, JUST LAUGHING WITH HER FAMILY AND FRIENDS AND REACHING OUT TO TOUCH A LIFE. YOU CAN READ ABOUT HER ON THE LINK THAT SAYS "MY AUNTIE'S PAGE". THE TATTOO ( ON MY LOWER BACK) IS MY TRIBUTE TO MY SECOND MOMMY AND PRECIOUS FRIEND. SHE NEVER SAW ME MARRY ( SHE LOVED MY FIANCEE, NOW HUBBY THOUGH) OR SAW MY CHILDREN, BUT SHE IS THERE. EVERY DAY IN MY DREAMS AND ON MY MIND AND IN MY HEART. WE GOT MARRIED IN HER OLD VICTORIAN HOME AND WE LOST OUR FIRST BABY AND SHE IS TAKING CARE OF HER NOW :). DEATH DID NOT CONFINE HER TO THE GRAVE, HALLALUJAH, SHE REJOICES WITH OUR HEAVENLY FATHER AND HIS HEAVENLY HOST!

THIS MORNING MY DAUGHTER WAS SITTING AT THE BREAKFAST TABLE, HELPING TAKE CARE OF HER BABY BROTHER WHEN SHE STARTED TO CHAT ABOUT GOD AND WHAT HE HAS DONE AND WHO HE IS. THEN SHE SAID " GOD CREATED ME AND LOVES ME SO MUCH, AND I LOVE HIM AND HE MAKES ME HAPPY IN MY HEART. I LOVE JESUS AND HIS DADDY GOD TOO." SHE JUST COMES OUT WITH STUFF ALL DAY LONG...HER MIND IS ALWAYS WORKING AND SHE IS FULL OF QUESTIONS AND PONDERINGS.

When I went to my sister's the other day, she dragged out all her craft stuff and let me use her wooden templates to make birds for spring. I made my mother's day cards and a few other cute things too. Thanks Cheryl, for sharing your idea, and all your stuff!. She also made me a bird too! That will be the first picture I post. :) When I went home I finished those and made more, and created some new tags too. I have made tags before but I either scrapped with them or gave them out. I am making some homeade cards and tags for my daughter's sunday school teachers for Mother's Day on sunday. Tags are so awesome to make because the possibilities truly are endless! You can customize them however you like for anyone! Use them to adorn another project, or give them alone, with a message on the back. Here are some pics of the products I made the other night while we were watching the Celtics game! Abbey, if you're reading this...yours should be there today or tomorrow. I sent a bunch out to friends to brighten their day and make them smile! The one with a magerita glass and green salt is for my friend Bonnie for us to go out and have a girl's night. More to come....What do you think so far? :)

SO AS MY LITTLE MAN GROWS FROM A BABY TO ALMOST A TODDLER, I DECIDED TO JAZZ UP A FEW THINGS IN HIS ROOM. I DID NOT PICK JUST ONE PARTICULAR THEME BUT I DO PREDOMINATELY HAVE CARS, RACE CARS AND THINGS THAT GOOOO. I ALSO TRY TO INCORPORATE SPORTS, AS WE ARE HUGE CELTICS AND RED SOX FANS. WHEN HE GETS OLDER WE WILL DO ONE WALL NAVY WITH RED SOX, AND ONE WALL HUNTER WITH CELTICS, BUT THAT IS WHEN HE IS OLDER. FOR NOW, I AM WORKING ON MAKING IT A LITTLE BOY'S ROOM FROM A SOFT BABY BOY NURSERY. I HAVE A WOODEN MIRROR I AM WORKING ON, I PUT SOME CAR STICKERS AND MY BEST FRIEND IS A RACE CAR DRIVER AND MECHANIC, SO HE WILL HELP WITH THAT. I'LL POST THAT LATER. ANYWAY, HERE ARE A FEW THINGS I DID....THOSE ARE FLASH CARDS ON THE WALL, I HAD THESE BLUE CONTAINERS AND THIS WHITE "E" SO I USED MY SCRAPPING STUFF TO CHANGE THE LOOK...
