Card Post

Back in February or so a friend asked me if I wanted to share a table with her at a craft fair.  She had never tried selling some of her paper goods and tea cup candle holders before and thought it would be fun.  So I decided to do it.  I had so many good intentions to get a "zillion" items crafted.  But you know the best laid plans NEVER go as planned.  I had so many things on my plate and ended up not getting as much crafted as I would have liked. 
 
Below are some of the cards I created to sell.  I made at least four of each card.  The lemon card was one that I created for a friend, so this was the one and only of it.  All stamped images are Stampin' Up! stamps along with almost all the paper.  One or two scraps came from my scrap box that may have come from a big box store. 
 
I also made a several tags.  However, I see only two are posted.  Not sure what happened to the others.  Most of the tags did sell.  I made several note books also, and they were great sellers.  But I noticed I did not get a picture of them.  
 
The day of the fair was NOT a good day to sell.  We were inside a church basement on BEAUTIFUL  Saturday.  We also had a competition with the Mini-Marathon down town.  I did fairly well, made more than I spent on supplies.     
 
My friend and I had a good time even though our sales were not high for the day.  Sometimes that is more important.  We both walked away with memories and a cards ready to use for our card ministries at church.  She decided that she probably would not do another craft fair again and just create for the ministry.

Graduation

Is it really that time?  My days since mid-March have been a big blur.  It seems one day becomes another and soon I am unsure of what day it really is.

Today though, is a very special day!  Son #5 graduates this evening. It seems so unreal!  There must be some mistake...I am sure yesterday he was in his crib, not preparing his speech for this evening.

CONGRATULATIONS SON!
WE ARE VERY PROUD OF YOU!
MAY THE NEW ROAD YOU WALK
FIND YOU WALKING IN THE FOOTPRINTS
OF OUR SAVIOR, FOLLOWING
HIM IN THE LIFE HE HAS 
PLANNED OUT FOR YOU!

Love, Daddy and Momma

Late Birthday Post

This month had really thrown me.  I feel like I am so far behind in everything...that includes a birthday post for Grandson K.

Grandson K turned 2 on April 21, which would also have been my precious mothers birthday.  We celebrated Grandon K' s big day on Saturday, 25 April.

HAPPY (BELATED) BIRTHDAY GRANDSON K!
We love you so much!!!
