Hubby's 50th...

Hello Friends!

As some of you know already, my hubby turned "50"!  Woo Hoo, and did we have a PARTY!!  LOL!

What a great time with family and friends.  He really enjoyed himself.  We made all his favorite foods and birthday cake.  Which was strawberry shortcake.  The shortcake made from Bisquick.  My bestie made it and it was DELICIOUS!!!!

This is about the only crafty thing I made for his party, the invitation...

He requested black and red and diamond plate.
I love my new Sizzix Big Shot and
the  diamond flip it die.
FYI - when you want to mail a square card, put it in a rectangular envelope.  (Learned that little ditty from a very helpful little lady at the post office.)  I had to pay 68 cents for each of these invites because I put them in a square shaped envelope.  UGH!

He received so many wonderful, funny cards and gifts. Especially
his AARP card!  LOL!  We have already used it at
the movie theater for his small popcorn and soda for $5.50. 

I am in the process of making a photo book off all the wonderful pictures from his BIG day!

Hi My Crafty Friends!

Did you miss me?!  LOL!  Well I missed you!  I hope everyone has been having a wonderful summer.  Ours is winding down a bit.

We have been super busy considering we have had lot's of pitfalls (physically) along the way.  You know how that "LIFE" happens.  We made the BEST of it though.

I have been suffering with the whiplash that I got in early May, so that put a damper on a lot of projects, but I still got them done and I still went on our trips even though I didn't get to do anything.  Lot's of doctor appointments and physical therapy.  Bleh!

Our son turned 16 in June!  He fractured his wrist on our second day of vacation at Sand Mountain.  Total freak incident.  Made a hard landing and off to Emergency we went.  He gets his cast off this week.  Put a damper on his getting his driver's license though, which he was bummed about and he didn't get to ride all summer. Maybe dad will squeeze a little trip in before school starts.  ;)

Here he is heading out.

Luckily our friend let us borrow his side by side, so he
had something to drive.  Which our dogs loved!


My hubby turned "50!!"  So we had another GREAT party!  LOL!  (I will share about that in my next posting.)  hehe

I have some projects to share as well.  ;)
