dust bunnies!

I have cleaned out the dust bunnies...have you!! OK... I still have more to do. I was NOT inspired by this totally cute girl...I just was getting fed up thinking the dust fairies were going to visit and leave everything sparkling clean! OH ya I think those fairies are on strike..or maybe they will come back when they need some cash to buy X mas presents!! Yep you guessed it the " fairies" are my girls!! We have had a couple of sick boys ( michelle's boys) the last few days! I hate it when they are sick :(

I want it now...

Ok so..have you ever wanted something and didn't get it...then.. when you decide to go back and get it, because you really want it ...IT IS GONE!!! That happened to my Mother in Law the other day at the craft fair ...sad...right? I feel that way when I see a stamp, dp or even fabric... I know what you are thinking..your should have just bought it...but come on I do try to have some know a stop ( ok maybe pause) button! Kathy's dp makes me feel that way today and then of course you know how I feel about the stamp! Thanks Kathy now WE have to go shopping! Yep I am dragging you down with me! Have a great day!! Maybe I will see you at the store!

simply the best

Michelle has made this totally simple birthday card and I want to say sometimes simple cards are the best..we spend so much time thinking how to up ourselves and we forget the simple things. I guess I have this thought because Christmas is coming and my sweet hubby and I always seem to think our kids need more....more what??? I have been so fortunate to have been given the gift of time at home with them and yes I will say it my hubby as well and shouldn't that be enough?? For the last couple of years we have cut down ...I mean way down.. on their gifts and focused on what we give to others not what we receive...Of course I made up my list tonight what we have bought and the first thing I thought was what else should we get for them..I decided the answer was nothing..they will be happy to get the gifts we have and it is time I learned that..."It is hard to teach moms things" ...that is a quote from my girls... they are simply the best!

this is so my Papa!

Ok so I saw this card and I thought about my Papa...He loved to golf and I think he loved to watch it more..He would spend all day watching golf....yes all day..I don't think they even had the "golf" station! I am not sure he would have worn the purple but I would have loved to see him in it! I do know he would have loved this card Michelle made! Hope you have a great day ...hug the golfer in your life!
