All in a week's work....

Here are a couple of this weeks creations:
I made the girls a grid for their room. I had these funny pictures of them when they were younger playing with sunglasses. Different from my normal layouts....but I like it! I am bias :)
Seasons first Christmas card....in not your "typical" Christmas colors!
One of the "male" birthday cards I have created....he reminds me of some men I know! lol Anniversary cardThis one was very special. How many times in your life can you say you got to make a 100th birthday card!! I hope plenty! I made this one for my friend Kris's Grandmother. The 100 is made with chipboard from Stampin Up, the flowers are from Michael's (I take apart flower's on stems I don't buy them in containers)Our garden is growing!! Our garden is growing!! We will soon harvest peas, carrots, beets, beans, peppers, tomatoes...well maybe not "soon" :)
Peas & Beans:Not exactly sure what this is...the plant is from mom....it's some kind of squash or something...whatever, it's growing! Isn't it amazing how a plant sends off those curly shoots to grab onto stuff....I sit in my greenhouse and just stare...it's wonderful! We went to Nanaimo one day....took the kids to Dollarama...they each got a Beebe gun...this is how they are allowed to play, with eye protection! They are very creative...gotta give them that! A day off with dad consists of fishing down at the local boat launch! They caught about 15 bullheads I'm told...but Harley said "they were too small to eat!" lolThis past long weekend we decided the girls needed a change! More like their room was driving me nuts...I can't stand clutter, well my scrap/craft space is a different story, anyhow, we redid their room. See the closet with the two white cabinets...that has become their bed area. The old closet was only 2inches shorter than their beds....so Kevin put up bead board to hide all the wrecked plaster walls and he built in bunk beds!This is the new room! Kevin had a futon that we didn't want to get rid of when we "re-joined" our houses! He also had a computer that the girls got....so of course a new computer desk was in order! Summer loves it....Zoe is waiting for the laptop from Grandma! hint hint :)Here is their new beds. Aren't they COOL! They love it! I love it!

Well, that is my past week in a quick nutshell! :) I tell ya, I know I am one of the luckiest ladies in the world. I figured out by 34 that life is about the quality of your day....cause there ain't no guarantee of quantity!!

Off to blog land!

Cheers
