i'm still alive!

I just planted these forget-me-nots in memory and my grandfather and mother but first...I have to say thank-you, thank-you, thank-you to all of you that have left comments and emails for me about my Grandpa and son! Such sweet comments from you all!

My grandpas funeral was last weekend. It was a beautiful day and have to say it was sad but also a celebration of his long life. It was nice seeing some family and friends that we haven't seen in a long time.


My son's pinkie surgery went well. You wouldn't believe it is just a pinkie injury from looking at the way his hand is completely wrapped up from fingers to wrist. Yesterday morning I was walking by his bedroom door as he was waking up. He was stretching both of his arms out when I looked in and saw...NO CAST!!! It came off during the night. I didn't want him to look at it and I for sure wasn't too crazy about seeing that little pinkie looking that way. There are pins sticking out of both sides and stitches form top to bottom...very frankensteinish! I wrapped it up the best I could and took him to the Dr. They said that because the swelling went down the cast loosened. The poor little guy can't even go out for recess or on his field trip next week. He also had to quit baseball. He's been a great sport and hasn't complained once. The little boy that gave him "the five" tried giving him "a bunch of money". I said to Michael that I hoped he hadn't excepted it and he said he didn't but, "it was A LOT of money". I asked "how much?". "A lot of dimes and pennies!"

Now on to more fun things. Has anyone gotten theirs yet? WOWZA....It is as wonderful as I had hoped (and thought) it would be!!! Every page is just full of pretties and fab ideas!!!! I haven't been very creative these days but looking at this book last night has me very antsy right now. Thanks ladies!!!!!!





I also wanted to mention a seller on Etsy that I cannot get enough of lately. One ripe peach! She makes these little journals that have me checking her listings everyday for more.
Just look at the yummy flower on this one...
She also has great supplies. Right now I have a stash that I've been saving and can't wait to get my hands on. I haven't had much time to work on some projects lately but hopefully will soon. But that is what I just love about Etsy. Fabulous artists selling fabulous supplies and inspiration to other artists. It so much fun isn't it!!???
Lastly, I thought I was putting these fish in a spot where the cats would never find them...on top of the fridge. Guess not...just caught her in the act a little while ago. Uh-oh!!!!!

I loved seeing the cat. We have a Manx now with a similar expression. The cats we had before were both seal point Siamese. They are great cats.
