A Masculine Trio

Hello!! It’s the weekend! Woohoo! I spent the afternoon running around buying party stuff for my kids combined birthday party next weekend! Their birthdays are only 18 days apart so it was just easier this year to combine the parties. We will be out of town for one of their birthdays anyway, so this worked out best! We have family coming in from out of town for it. My Mother in Law will be arriving on Thursday morning from New Brunswick, and staying until Tuesday. My sister and her two boys will be coming on Saturday for the party and staying over to Sunday. We will have a full house, but it should be fun! My 2 sisters in law and 2 brothers in law and my 2 nieces will join us too. Luckily they live nearby, so they won’t need a place to stay! 🙂 I’ve run out of room in my smallish house! I am hoping for some sunny warm weather so we can have the party out in the back yard. All …

Enjoy the Journey!

The SBS 18 Challenge for this week is flying! So I incorporated this challenge with the WT challenge on SCS which was (loosely interpreted) as travel! “Enjoy the Journey” can be interpreted in different ways…take time to enjoy the journey of your life , appreciate the adventure you are about to embark upon, or simply, enjoy the trip! Well, as I made this card, it started me thinking that I need to remind myself to do all of these! I am about to ramble on… you may want to stop here. 🙂 I worry about a million little things. Things that in the ‘big picture’ amount to nothing. I am missing out on what I really should be involved in at the moment. Every now and then, I have to pull myself back and analyze what it is I am getting myself all worked up over. Take time to breathe. Remind myself to lighten up! I sometimes feel like I don’t enjoy things as much as I should, because I am always too busy planning, …

A Magnetic Memento

Hello! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend! We had a good one. It was finally warmer, almost hot, on Sunday! Yeah! The week before, it felt more like fall, than spring, so it was really nice to see the sun and feel it’s warmth like we should at this time of year. I spent a good part of Sunday outdoors with the boys, in the back yard and at the park, and we barbecued hot dogs for lunch and steak for supper. Not so healthy, but sooo YUMMY! I want to say Hi to all my new “sisters”! I’m happy to be a part of the Sisterhood of the Blogging Stampers 18! The SBS 18 group has also started a weekly challenge blog. Every wednesday we will have a new challenge and this week the theme is Friendship. I will have a card posted for this by tomorrow! Join in the fun! The challenges are open to anyone. Check it out HERE. Today’s creation is not a card. I wanted to make a …
