Thank You Megan!

I just LOVE gifts in the mail! And I love winning blog candy. So you know I was so excited to hear I won the blog candy Megan Klauer gave away on her blog Megan Klauer Design There are so many papers and embellies I can't wait to play with. Just look at all of that paper and the ribbon is scruptous. So many embellies to use and chipboard too. Do you see that wonderful little purse? So many cute ideas for it. And yes that is a Fiskars stamp set hidden in there too. Don't you just love the dots on the paper? It just looks like so much fun.

I wanted to post a picture of a LO or project I did with all of these wonderful products but I've told myself I don't get to do any new projects until I get the church scrapbook caught up so I can hand it off to the new person. So if I wait until I get to play with new stuff it maybe the end of summer. But I wanted to shout out a big THANK YOU to Megan for the wonderful treats.

Fun Sized

If you've never been to a Women Of Faith event you really need to go. We had so much fun. Erica and Emma and I shared a room and Thelma and her daughter in law Katie shared a room. And there were so many laughs thru out the weekend. Friday night we met Mona, Anna, Kay and Marti for pie at Village Inn after watching Steven Curtis Chapman perform. Very powerful performance!

During the breaks at the event you can shop at their book tables or you can meet the speakers. I really wanted to meet Mandisa and Patsy Clairmont. I LOVE Patsy and you can tell from the picture she "loves" me too. Erica says it's because we're both "FUN SIZE"! (short) She's just a ball of fire and is so worth it to hear her speak. So from 2 "fun sized" gals- hope you have a great weekend.

Working backwards

I know it's been awhile since I posted again. It's not that I don't have lots of ideas and pictures to share. I really do. It's just that my laptop won't let me post pictures and thats the computer I'm usually on. But I'm going to try and do better. So we're going to start with Mother's Day and work backwards to Hawaii. And yes, wedding pictures will be posted too.

You can't tell from the pictures but it was very cold on Mother's Day. But the kids were good sports and they know you have to smile (endure) pictures. It's their little gift to me on Mother's day.

Awwwww, my first Mother's Day as a mother in law. I LOVE having a daughter in law.

And I have to have a picture of me and "Lawn Mower Man" it's my new name for him. He was the first one in our neighborhood, again this year to mow the yard.

And because I'm feeling generous and in one of those crazy moods, I'm going to leave you with this picture. Mr. Nice, Respectable Lawn Mower Man - trying to slip me the tongue when he kissed me. Real romantic ain't I???
Hope you all had a great Mother's Day. I did!
