14 years!

14 years ago, today, we got married on a boat on Lake Travis. Seems like yesterday… :). We started dating 22 years ago and he makes me laugh even more today than back then. We've grown together, as they say. So glad he is part of my life.

Happily Ever After…

The 2nd grade at my son's elementary school puts on a fairy tale program every year. Last year, when my son was in 2nd, it was called "Once upon a shortcut". It was super cute. All the kids dress up in fairy tale costumes and have speaking parts and sing lots of great songs like Brick House and Witchy Woman.

Anyway, this year's 2nd grade had their program today, called "Happily Ever After". Tuesday night while I was cleaning up my studio for the millionth time, I was putting away my new lawn fawn stamps and found this one, perfectly named "Happily Ever After". Well, I had to make my son's teacher (from last year) a card … it was just too perfect. Don't you think? I wanted to wish all the 2nd graders and their teachers well or break a leg as they say…

Get it? Maybe it's only funny to me. 🙂

I got to see the show this morning. The kids were so cute and they all did a great job. I always love the music choices! Here's wishing you a happily ever after…

Hope your day is grand.



Starting simple again…

Wow, getting back on a bike is easier than getting back into stamping. I have been crafting for the past few months but not necessarily making cards. Lots of gifts. Lots. LOTS. LOTS of silent auction items for my son's elementary school carnival back in March (maybe I can find some of those photos!). My youngest had a birthday somewhere around there too. I will have to show those invitations soon, too.

Anyway, the other day, probably last week or 10 days ago … who really knows anymore. All the days are the same yet they aren't and they're flying by. Rambling. So, a while ago I made this card. It is my first card with these cute Lawn Fawn stamps. Did I mention that I met them at CHA back in January? Did I mention I went to CHA back in January? It was a last minute trip and a better-take-advantage-that-all-the-stars-were-lined-up to go kinda thing. It was a great trip and it was quick. So, met Kelly Marie, owner and illustator for Lawn Fawn. Love her. Met Tiffany Johnson. Wow. She's fun. All in all, great booth, great people, fun stamps. So, I had to get some of course. And here's my first card using them… as well as my first card in a long time…

Funniest part of this card… my kids asked me what that was a image of. Sigh. Really? I don't like explaining things that make me feel "older". Not so funny, I guess. But they are so sweet. Guess I'll keep 'em.

It's already hot here and boys are ready to hit the lake and pool. And the allergies are almost killing me but thankfully I keep the drug companies in business. Hope you are having a great day wherever you are. Would love to hear from you!
