Hello, yes my new grandson was born March 24 right on his due dae. His mommy had a long day. But at 12:56 am he arrived. With a little help .He is beautiful and my third grand son. And the youngest of 6 grand children . He is such a good baby and eating. Really good, doing all the pooping and peeing he is supposed to. Lol He was welcomed home by his big sister Alissa who fell in love with him, and 2 big brothers, Cody at 14. And Dustin is almost 11. I am sure he will be taught how to play ball by all of them His mommy and daddy settled in as pros at being good parents again
so, here he is, please meet Wyatt Ryan Quick who we thought was going to be called. #4
Yes he may be the sixth, butGod always makes sure there is enough room in my heart and enough LOVE too. I am so blessed...
Thanks for stopping by, and for sharing my joy
I hope to add more pictures soon. Til then, remember to smile
Hmmm I see the picture did not post, I am on the iPad. Since the 3 rd laptop has stopped working. For me...lol
Yes it has been a very long time. As most of you know, it was a very busy summer for me.
Then in September I helped my youngest daughter and her family move to Colorado and stayed for a couple of weeks.
That led to a process for me to decide where I was going to live..I decided to accept their offer to come live with them. yes I am blessed
Sadly that was not an easy decision, as I left my oldest daughter and two very special grand daughters in Illinois along with family members and friends , that are a part of my every day living... For those that do not know me, my family and dear friends are my life.
It took several weeks to give away , sell, and store most of my belongings.and lots of packing.I was blessed with good help and in time I was ready to make the move. So in November my daughter and family came to move me...
So I am in Colorado, it has been great. the weather is not too bad where we are, my family is doing well here. And my family back in Illinois does a lot of face timing and calling...thank goodness for new technology Speaking of technology, I do not have my desktop or my awesome printer/ scanner, so it is a new world for me to learn how to simply post on my blog...Then my laptop died, so I am using one from my daughter as well as an Ipad she gifted me with...yes I am blessed
They say change is good, and I am trying... For those that know me. well, sometimes change is a big struggle for me...I am trying, slowly
As this is my second attempt to post this update on this blog....
I am sad to say my crafting supplies did not make the move, as there was not quite enough room in the trailer ~ and my son-in-law thought I needed my bed and clothes more lol
They are all packed and waiting until the time we can go get them...
Til then, Krista's craft area is set up...well kind of sort of...yes that is another story, are you ready for that???
Krista had her new craft room all set up and in order, she was excited... However she learned a new baby was on the way, and he needed a room...So her craft room was emptied and sat up in a large corner of their dining room... Functional, looks good and we are thankful.
And it did not take Krista long to find an SU consultant close by Plus Krista and I have been to a couple of SU classes out here and that was awesome... So I will have a few things to share
So did any of you figure out the best part of all of this??? I am going to be a grandma again insert a huge happy smile...# 6 and the third boy currently we refer to him as # 4 lol
So for now I will leave you with this message, but I will be back... crossing my fingers and saying please God...I will share pics of where I live, and my family and creations when I can
2014 was a year of many challenges, many changes...many prayers... and many tears ...
I hope you enjoyed the hot tea...maybe tomorrow I will have some banana bread to go with it
Thank you all that have checked in on me, and still support me...I really appreciate you all
And here are the other cards I made at the last class I went to Isn't this little guy or gal too cute ?? It is a single stamp offered by SU called kind koala I love the simplicity , adding just a touch of color to the bear, 2 colors on a white card base and some dimension from an embossing folder , adding the yarn / string bow and it is just so sweet We did add crystal effects to the flower and his / her nose for some added fun
And the second one is the same card I changed into a birthday card, but this was the original design, well I changed the style of and placement of the thank you
And the third one is a beautiful Christmas card , basic while with dry embossing of a snowflake for an elegant base some soft color and silver punched snowflakes
and bling to add to that elegant look
So there you have them all , thanks for stopping by as always . I hope these cards have sparked an idea or two It was a hot muggy day here , end of summer heat I believe... So I will see you all soon, remember to SMILE~
I am not sure about you, but August is one of those months, lots of birthdays... I missed a few
but was so happy the card class I attended had several choice pre designed for birthdays, or easy to change the sentiment...Woo Hoo
The first one was designed as a thank you, but it was so easy to change it up ... It was stamped with the set named Stippled Blossoms from SU...And the SU consultant is so happy to do all the fancy cutting, yep another Woo Hoo lol the back ground stamp Haedwood is one of the truest designs I have ever seen...yep I bought it lol the embossing on the top layer of the banner adds so much and flowers and leaves are all popped up at different levels ~ love love love this one
And # 2 for the Birthdays is something so different and fun to me~ I can see this set being a stand by for teen cards or masculine cards .I thought the color combo was great..The name of the set for the splotchy or spilled paint look is Gorgeous Grunge iand the Happy Birthday is from Age Awareness
Love how they look perfect together... Not sure which set the label was from... Again dry embossing the small blue square and piercing the label add so much
Now # 3 is a much softer look and a new technique as well We used painters tape to press into the ink and place on the card stock to go with the birds image It came out light and so perfect... who would have thought lol ?? The set used was Wetlands, it comes with 3 different sentiments so I did one birthday and one thinking of you . I thought the wood grain embossing was great like drift wood...It is the Woodgrain embossing folder
There you go for tonight ~ I have a couple more from the class but I will be back with those
Thanks for stopping by, still pretty weather so grab your tea from the fridge in the breezeway
WOW I ENJOYED A CARD CLASS SO MUCH THAT I WENT TO IN JULY,
I loved the ideas presented to us, and we were able to choose which ones we wanted to make and make 2 of each design we chose ... It was really a great day , a friend gave me this class as a belated birthday gift, I gave my sis in law the class as an early birthday gift and we were joined my a niece, another sister in law and a friend... What better gift than time doing what you love with those you love ~
First is a card that was fun to make, easy to change it up if you want by placement of lined stamp I did not add the sentiment because I thought it would be great for several reasons, I will add one as needed . ...The flowers and leaves were cut out and some popped up with dimentionals .. red base , white card front , navy ink, red ink and celery green ink or some thing similar... I forgot to get the name of the stamp set, sorry
And # 2 is one that that pushed my limits, lol ~ stamp, punch and line up ~ .my niece and I also requested to change the base mat color, as she had some really off green... We embossed the white mat after we applied the hexagons, for a unique look simple ribbon treatment and popped up the sentiment
Ok and on to # 3
I love this one, simple one layer card, great clean and simple card ...this is the one thar made me order a new stamp set lol
She had samples of other cards she had previously made , all way to cute
And # 4 is so pretty, I struggle to make Wedding cards, but check this out ! `
clean design, add a little sparkle and WOWZERS and you could custom to match Wedding colrs if you wanted to...Love love love this one it was marina blue I belief, yes my scanner is so friendly and right on...lol
And the last card was fun, thank goodness for all the help in cutting and cutting...WHEW
color on color, add a script background add some simple bling, a sweet and simple tie if strinfg pretty ribbon and a punch for the sentiment...LOOK how pretty
I would like to have this set too,...
Crumb cake, Cherry cobbler and Wasabi green make a gorgeous Christmas card..
