Happy Birthday

I am not going to go on about how I should have updated this sooner. I am just going to do better from now on. Anyway. I had a birthday this past week and I just thought that I would share some of the goodies that I got. First off I got a dozen beautiful coral colored roses from my BFF and Sis. They are still beautiful after a week. My kids made me a cake and several handmade cards. They also gave me a great gift of an early bedtime that night. I also got a great box of goodies from my challenged sister. It had a Bella stamp, CTMH ink pads, two altering books, CTMH paper, sanding block and tweezerbees. Thank you so much to Lizzy. Not to mention the cards that came in from all over the country. Thanks to all the CFS ladies for the well wishes and the new stamps. It was a great birthday. I even ended the night with getting my second stripe on my orange belt in TaeKwonDo.

I hope to be updating my blog more often and sharing some of the work that I have been doing. I have done 100 pages in 2008 and I don't know how many cards. I have started my 2007 album and managed to keep my spending down. Although I couldn't refuse the Cropodile big bite the other day. I guess that was Happy Birthday to me.

We have arrived

Just thought that I would check in to let you all know that we have arrived. We made the long trip from Kansas to Virginia. We are unpacked and settled in. The kids have adjusted nicely to school. They have made friends quickly. That makes it nice for me.

Rick is at his new job. I won't say that he loves it but it is doable for a couple of years. Then he can get back to things that he enjoys more.

I wanted to share with you my latest project. I have been working the past two days on a bulletin board for G's school. I think that it has turned out nice. I still may add a couple of things but for the most part I really like it.

I did all of it with the Cricut using the Dreams come True cartridge. It was really easy to assemble. The font is Alphalicious. One of my favorite fun fonts to use. Thanks for looking and comments are always welcome.
