So yeah, I didn't make it to CHA. I held out hope until the very end that I would get respite and be able to attend, but alas my dreams were squashed like a tiny blood sucking mosquito on a balmy summer's eve. So sad and tragic... *sigh*
One good thing that came of it was that my husband felt so bad for me that he worked extra hard to make sure I was able to get a few hours in the craft room uninterrupted. So with that rare and very precious time I made a 8x8 Brag Album for a friend's first Grand baby a girl due next month... I will post pictures after I give the album to her. The momma of said baby is pretty crafty herself and occasionally follows my blog ;)
I also made a much overdue Thank You card.
But what I really did was get started on my Grandson Bentley's FIRST Birthday Party. See here is the ultimate JOY in having them so close to home again. Not only do I get to see my grandson's more often, but I get to be an integral part of the BIG THINGS!! So for Bentley's first birthday my daughter has graciously agreed to let me HOST! I am over the moon! She picked the theme of Mini Monsters and gave me an idea of what she had in mind and the wording she wanted and off I went. I even used my Imagine!
Yeah so we borrowed the wording from a different children's book :)
I did the inside monsters with different colored "hair"
Now as soon as my daughter gives me her address list I will be mailing them out.
Speaking of THAT daughter.... she is a very talented photographer and is currently accepting bookings for sessions. Here is here website, take a look take one of her available slots.
This was a recent session of hers....soooooo sweet!
She is in the Seattle area but will even come to the Portland area if you are interested. Then I get the ADDED bonus of watching the grandsons ;) AND if you book with her and tell her that her Mom sent you... I will hand make you a beautiful display using a couple photographs from your session..for FREE.
And since I am pimping one daughter I might as well mention that THIS MONTH you can get 10% off your total order of SCENTSY!!!!
Oh yeah, I think I feel a giveaway coming on....stay tuned for a drawing for a
