Back to beading...

Hello Crafty Friends...

A friend of mine recently asked if I could make her a some necklaces, and well of course I said "YES!".  LOL!  I haven't played in my beads for quite a while (and I do have quite the collection, so it was fun digging back into it.)  Mostly all I have been doing is repairs.  So it was fun to create something.

Here is what I made:

This was done with brown cording, lapis and
silver findings.  

This was made with purple shell, pearls and
Swarovski crystals.  

Some of you may remember that I used to co-own a bead store we had her in town that opened back in 2003.  Seems like forever ago.  :)  It recently closed down a few months ago.  Very sad.  :(

A most wonderful surprise...

Hello Crafty Friends!

I just had to share with you this lovely quilt that one of my dearest friends and EGHS Drill Team parent (GO HERD!) made for me.  Mind you I haven't coached since 2008, but I love that we all have kept in touch all these years.

Several months ago she posted on facebook that the 5 first people to comment on her post she would make something for.  Being the smart A that I am I did.  (I never in a million years thought she would take me seriously.)  And I totally forgot about it.  LOL!   So a few weeks ago she posted on her fb page, that she had a present for me and the other 4 that commented on her post.  I immediately responded because I was curious to know what she did.  She is a very crafty person like me.  :)

Well here is what she did!!!!  I am still overjoyed and LOVE LOVE LOVE IT!

She recreated all the our T-shirts over the years and included our Disneyland trip group photo.  (Wow, that waterfall isn't there anymore.)

What GREAT memories I have from my times as the coach of these lovely ladies.  I can't even tell you how old they make me feel right now.  LOL!  I am still in touch with most all of them.  :)

THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU TAMA for this beautiful quilt.  I will cherish it always!

Mom and Dad's 50th Wedding Anniversary...

Hello Crafty Friends!

I can't believe I never got these pics up of my parents "50th Anniversary" dinner.

There anniversary is the same day as my husbands birthday...I mean exactly the same day!  LOL!  ;)  They went back to Tennessee to visit my moms family, so we celebrated when they got back to town.

We have a wonderful little Italian place here in town call Vinces that has been here for as long as I can remember.  They were so generous and let us have the little family gathering in there fireplace room.  It was a very beautiful area.  (No charge, btw.)  And they let us decorate and have a cake table.  :)

The cake made by the wonderful Kristine!

The centerpieces!

One of the many gifts was a photo of them cutting
their wedding cake.  One of my favorite
pics of them when the were sooo young.  :)

My brother, me, dad, mom and my sister.

My hubby, me, dad, mom, sister and brother in law.

Just missing one of the grandkids (the oldest one) she lives
in So CA now and couldn't make it up.  

Cheer's to the Happy Couple!!

Here is a closer look of the centerpiece I made.  It has
little LED lights in the glass.  Looked really pretty in
person, but couldn't get a good camera shot.  :(

 Have a great day!
