have you ever heard of them, if not where have you been? It is amazing group of peeps! I found this on-line community of crafters approximately two or so years ago! As you can see by my blog that I have a passion for family and crafting and of course mixing the two. Click on the title of this post to go over and check out some amazing crafters! This weekend one of the leads, Angela is celebrating her 38th birthday by hosting an on-line party/crop. She has posted 38 different challenges, which equals 38 different chances of winning some Fiskars goodies.

Baby Shower for Andrea and Andy...

hosted by Becky, Beth, and Kayce! Wow these three girls definitely know how to put on a spread! Look at all the yummy food they made for all of us! On second thought, I have a feeling my Sister-in-law, Becky made the food! Thanks Becky it was awesome!
Andrea was the guest of honor and received lots of pink goodies! One of those pink goodies was a blanket I made to keep baby Brooke warm this winter.
I maybe a little biased, but isn't my great niece Kayce beautiful?!?
Thanks for a great time girls!

Here comes the Bride...

oh what a fun day I had. Went with two of my nieces, my sis, and sister-in-law to a bridal shop to look at bridal gowns for Hailey! Wow she chose one beautiful gown, you know, the one that looks like it was made just for her! We had a great day! Do you want to see the one she chose?
It was one of these, do you see it? Thanks for a wonderful day girls!!

Twin Size Charity Fundraiser...

that I made this weekend! I have not sewed in awhile. One of my friends is having a fundraising crop on October 24th and I would love to help her out by raising some money for Breast Cancer. Can't come up with an idea on how to do this, can you help me think of a way? I used two yards of white fleece and two yards of printed fleece, sewed them together to keep someone warm this winter.

that I made! Michelle at Live, Imagine, Create posted as a challenge. This was such a quick easy project and I think they would make a great gift

I had a four day weekend, wow it seemed like a one day weekend! Too many things to do in so little time! Today was my first day back to work and it went rarely smoothly after I caught up on all my emails and voice mails!! How was your day?

I made a ...

floral arrangement today! It has been years since I created one! I used the new Fiskars Floral tools to create it! I purchased all the supplies at Michaels! Can you tell I am ready for Fall, how can you not be, the Stores have so many neat Fall supplies in them!

It's been awhile....

but here is a layout I did of Carter's 1st birthday in 2007. I used a sketch and I really like how it turned out. What do you think?

Here is one of his brother Ethen at his birthday party also! They both have a baby brother now who was born July 3, 2009, his name is Lance and I haven't even gotten a chance to go see him!
