Check out my chocolate projects! lolol I am in love with our new wrapping paper from the holiday mini catalog.
It is so versatile and has such a nice finish. I love the classy look this paper has when you add the satin ribbon!! No matter what I do for the journal the sheen on the paper glares in the photo- sorry!
I love the look of the chipboard flower, it looks velvety! This is the classiest satin ribbon I have seen in many years!
Be sure to check out the lunch boxes I made that I will post tomorrow!!
Mom was SO surprised when we walked up to her at the Olive Garden in Mississippi Saturday night! She had NO clue we were coming down! hehehe - I even called her about 9 am to wish her a happy birthday, talked about how the kids had football and band practice, we had mowing to do, etc.... She was totally clueless! Even tho one of the teenagers griped most of the way about going and how board he was, it was worth the 11 hour each way trip for the look on her face and how happy it made her!
Here's a couple photos~ one day I will get them scrapbooked! lol

Article 6 of the Constitution specifically prohibits a religious test to run for office, but many of the press seem to forget that.
The Lord's sweet assurance . . . can guide you and me in our time, in our day, in our lives. Of course, we will face fear, experience ridicule, and meet opposition. Let us have the courage to defy the consensus, the courage to stand for principle. Courage, not compromise, brings the smile of God's approval. Courage becomes a living and an attractive virtue when it is regarded not only as a willingness to die manfully, but also as a determination to live decently.
A moral coward is one who is afraid to do what he thinks is right because others will disapprove or laugh. Remember that all men have their fears, but those who face their fears with dignity have courage as well."
Today is my mom's 80th birthday......... TA DA! She actually lived through 2 teenage daughters! tee hee
Mom, I love you with all my heart, you are my hero, my best friend and I am truly grateful for everything you have done for me in my life and for all the emotional support!
Look Mom you have hair! heheheheheh yes, that is little ole me at the age of 2- so this photo is 43 years old, my how time flies!
When mom was in her early 20's she was Rodeo queen and then she had polio in her left arm and lost the use of it, all my life I remember that MY mom could do 2+ times as much as any of the other moms with her bad arm and her good arm. I have always admired and appreciated her for that. We picked fruit at my Aunts orchards, we canned every summer so we could eat in the winter and my mom worked VERY hard to provide for our family as my dad was disabled. She even began a beadwork pattern business with the encouragement of Celia Totus of the Yakima Indian Nation when I was in the 6th grade. Mom designed and printed beadwork patterns on pellon in our home, and then traveled to sell them all over the United States and Canada. She sold the business in 1980 or so.
When I hear people talk about how they "can't" do something, it infuriates me! I watched my mom and all the things she DID, so I know you "can" when you set your mind to it!
anyhow- I love you mom, Happy birthday and many many more!
