Movin' On!

The end of the school year is upon us and it's time for the kids to move on...move on to summer break when we will all be happy that there is no homework! And then move on to the next grade levels. Keeping this in mind I found this stamp from Stampendous and thought it was perfect for this theme. I thought it was cute to put my son's name on the license plate too. The saying on the inside is also very appropriate for the teachers. It says: "We all take different paths in life, but no matter where we go, we take a little of each other everywhere." Appropriate don't you think? I hope they like them. Take care and have a good week! Mary

Happy Mother's Day!

Happy Mother's Day to all you mothers out there! I hope you are enjoying your special day. I've had a very nice day so far: breakfast in bed, church with a special blessing and a flower, lunch made for the kids by my husband so I could sit and relax, flowers and the Benjamin Button movie, and I got to go to Michael's and Archiver's alone and didn't feel rushed or guilty. :) I'll be enjoying some quiet time to make teacher thank you cards in a little bit and then for supper we're going out to Stir Crazy. What a great day!

This is the Mother's Day card I made for my mom but I don't think she will receive it until tomorrow. I've already called to apologize and of course she understood. Mom's are like that.

I hope you enjoy it as much as she will. Have a great day! Mary

Hello...Are You Still There???

Are you still there...anyone...hello? I wouldn't blame you if you left me. I haven't been a very good blog-mate lately. It's been almost 1 month since my last post. Wow! I've thought about it almost everyday but just didn't have the time, energy, or drive to do anything worthy of posting. I hope you will forgive me for my absence. It's been a whirlwind of puppy, kids, doctor's appointments, home improvement projects, and cake balls that have kept me busy. (What are cake balls you ask? I'll have to leave that for another post, but let me tell you this'll love them! But just a warning...they are very dangerous to the figure.) With all that going on I couldn't find time to get into my craft room. And when I finally did have the time I lost my mo-jo and didn't feel crafty. Has that ever happened to you?

But then the other day a friend at work (the one who's daughter got married last September) told me that her daughter is pregnant! I was so happy for them that I just couldn't wait to make them a card. So I blew the dust off of my stamps and got busy. It was just the thing to get me going again. And here it is. I decided not to go with the traditional baby colors because they are not your average couple. They do things their own way and can appreciate the atypical. I hope you like it too. And I hope you're actually still there to see it. Mary
