Our New Addition...

Most of you already know...that we purchased a Harley Davidson motorcycle. It's official, we can now wear HD apparel and not feel like posers! I thought at first that this wouldn't be "my thing" but after a few rides and a new backrest, I warmed up to the idea.
I have never met a more happier guy!!

Three Hours!

That’s how long it took me to create ONE card last week. I hadn’t realized I was trapped in my craft area for that long, but apparently that is so. When I finally finished the card I came upstairs to see what Jason was doing…he was getting ready for bed! When he asked me what I was doing down there for so long (I’m sure he was hoping I would say cleaning) I told him I had to make a birthday card. “A birthday card?” he said “As in ONE card? You were down there for three hours!” I sheepishly said “Yes, but I was also busy keeping the dogs from wrestling under my drafting table.” He did a little “eye rolling” after that remark. Yes, okay sometimes I get stuck…really stuck. I realized later in the week that my life would be easier if I would just pull out my collection of card sketches. So here is the famous or infamous card that took “three hours”

Oh, Happy Day!!

Today I took an early lunch and snuck off to Centerville, Utah for the Making Memories warehouse sale. Oh, I can't wait to play!!

I am happy to report that I didn't even go over my budget!

We had friends over for dinner Monday night… they have three children. I seem to suffer from a little “shock” when the whole brood arrives, but I quickly adjust. We don’t have any toys or anything really “fun” for them to do when they are here (other than the X-box, which one of them is really too young to play with anyway). The oldest child asked me if they could make something. I was a little hesitant at first, but I gave in and we went down stairs to my craft room. The three of them fought around my small drafting table, so then I decided to bring in the “big guns” my long rectangle folding table. I turned on the Disney Channel and we began to draw… First we made a card, and then drew dinosaurs with green eyelets for eyes and finally we attempted to make an origami box. Unfortunately, I forgot how to make one so this will be a project for another time. Eventually it was time for them to leave. The youngest asked if they could sleep over. He was pretty disappointed when I said no, but he gave me this drawing of Jason and me dancing together anyway.
