What's happening?

Are you wondering what I have been up to? Well, crafts and gardening and photo stuff. It's all been good. Yesterday I spent the whole day reading a novel! Such fun. Today I need to do the bookkeeping. Not so much fun, but with my Pandora on, it is a bit better.

I don't think I showed you this project Amy and I did for Nick's new place.It is a canvas with chipboard scrolls, tissue paper, paint, a great piece of scrapbook paper, words from Casting Crown and an actual guitar pick. I love the way it turned out.

We spent Saturday doing a wedding, the bride had 10 brothers and sisters! Apostalic Lutheran family. I wanted to add a picture but they haven't been processed yet.

Then I finished this:

yep, phase one of my "history" album is done. This is mostly my great-great-grandparents to my grandparent's lives. There is a bit of my parents and my families lives too. The next album will be my grandparents in the 20's, their marriage and my mom's childhood. She got married at 17. Didn't even finish school. Silly woman! She ended up coming home with 2 children and the third on the way. Had to get a GED and do some schooling at Clark to get a job. She did the best she could and isn't that what we all want to do?!

Well, gotta work so I'll post again in a few days.
