Well, last week was one of those weeks that I felt like I accomplished a lot.  I love weeks like those, except that the following week(s) seem to be all down hill from there, but such is life.

One of my resolutions this year was to send cards out more often than I had in the past.  I love making cards, but it can be time consuming.  I am trying to make 2-4 cards a week, plus trying to catch up on some of my scrapbooks.  I worked so hard getting Ty's stuff all done before he graduated in May, that I kind of burned myself out, and have not done much since.  I am over a year behind on Tanner, and with the amount of pictures I take of Levi and Noah. . .  oh well.  Right now, I'm working on Tanner's album.   I've gotten several pages done!

Disorganized - oh no!

Please note:  I am not a "fancy" scrapbooker or card maker - I do basic simple things.  My theory is that pages "done" are better than "fancy" pages, and a card sent is more about the thought than the beauty, right?  Works for me.  I got a couple more cards done last week too!

The golf card is for a dear friend who recently had surgery, but thankfully, seems to be on the mend!  The other card is one I found on Dawn's Stampin' Thoughts.  She has a lot of fun cards on there and tutorials to follow.  The picture of Ty and Emily is not attached, I just used it to show you what the card is supposed to look like.  I have a friend in mind to send this to, but need to get a picture printed for the card :-).

And speaking of Emily. . . . she is here visiting this week.  We really love having her.  She is a sweetheart.  She got Dan and I these beautiful frames for Christmas - I love them - moose, trees and photos - a few of my favorite things!!

I know this is all very exciting stuff!  I'm sure you all will leave this blog feeling so fulfilled :-).


  1. Very fulfilled. I love reading what you are up to and what you are cooking!! That apple salad looks delish. Great ideas for cards too. Glad you had fun with Emily too. I'm sure it's nice to have some girl time!!

  2. I love seeing what you're up to also and I love the seeing the 'every day', if ya know what I mean!

  3. The card you made for Jack was Great! Thank you for all the love you put into it. Those little things mean a lot and help to brighten up an otherwise long day!
