Sorry I haven't posted....


Sorry that I haven't been around much. I guess as always I am behind. I don't think anyone checks this anyway. I am trying to get better.
I did catch up on my cards for the swap I am in. I am attaching a picture I made of my January Raining Cards swap. All four were the same but in different colors. I so wanted to use my Cricut but couldn't decide on a layout. That seems to be the second of my problems. The first being I can't decide what stamps to use. Finally comes the colors and the paper to use. There has to be a better way. I guess if I ever get organized maybe that would help. After working with the layout I decided I did have room for the "happy" and the "2009" I cut out with my cricut. I hope the recipients liked them. Let me know what you think. I would like and welcome any suggestions.

There is still time to enter the contest for the blog candy my sister is offering. All you need to do is donate something to St. Baldrick's. Here is the link once again. http://kaputkrafts.typepad.com/kaput_krafts/2009/02/bald-is-beautiful.html

My son Ryan is shaving his head on Tuesday, March 17th. I am trying to post a picture of him. As you can see, he is in desperate need of a haircut, but I don't know about bald. I just got his report cards and I have to say I am very proud of him. He got 3-A+, 1-A-, 1-A and 1-B+ and has raised his GPA to 4.30. He is working very hard. I will miss him greatly when it is time to go to Milwaukee to college. Hey maybe I can combine a mother/son visit with some crafters in WI.


Now I couldn't post a picture of one son without posting the other. This is Brandon my three year old. Yeah he needs a haircut also, but I took care of that this weekend. If I can get him to sit still long enough, I will take a new picture. I think I am being punished with him because Ryan was such a good kid. Oh the trouble Brandon gets into! He is on a "up time" at 3:30am. schedule. He wants to play then and watch tv. He is wearing me and my husband out. He is taking away sleep and craft time with all his mischief. But he is too cute to stay mad at for long.

Tilda is just adorable! I adore this one and you did a great job on her! Your boys are so cute! And yes, the boys off set each other! It goes like that! I'll try and be around more also. I've fallen way behind after being out with the flu.
