Thanks a Latte

Wow! What a great week I have had! First, two pairs of my Thursday Therapy BFF's (Sindee, the Whoooss, and Peggy) surprised me with a VERY EARLY birthday gift... a new shell for my Miche Bag that they felt I just had to have!!! They were right on that one.

Then my sweet friend Ginger (instructor of Serendipity) at Scrapbooks, Etc. got me this cute little "Thanks a Latte" stamp. Why? Just because it reminded her of me! Told ya' she is sweet!!!

I am truly blessed with dear friendships! "Thanks a Latte girls!" Luv yas!!!

Page by Gale

My friend Gale asked me to scan and stitch this 12 x 12 page she created. I was so moved by her photos and journaling, I asked her if I could share this layout on my blog. The journaling reads, "There is more than one kind of support system. My friends are my #1 source. The sand and the sea run a close second."

Just beautiful. Thank for sharing you work with us Gale!

Happy Anniversary!

Happy Anniversary Chad and Susan! Celebrating 13-years today!!!
On our 5 year Anniversary I asked Chad, "Chad, do you think anyone is surprised that we've made it 5 years?" He thought about it for a few moments and replied... "Only you dear."
That pretty much sums it up. I love you Chad - Happy Anniversary!!!

Different drug problem...

Gearing Up for Mother's Day

Here is a glimpse of a Mother's Day Class Project I did years ago. It's been on my mind lately as I have been working on a 2009 Mother's Day Class. When I showed this book to my younger brother, it choked him up...(we lost our mother unexpectedly 12-years ago) so, I gave it to him. I love him so much...he happens to be in possession of just about all of my most favorite mini book creations...and that's a lot of LOVE!!!
