I was in a scrapbook store yesterday and purchased this cute photo ring thingy lol. I love the cowboy theme and I also bought the clear plastics to make one of my own for my photos of Jackson. Have you ever seen these plastics? I would love to buy some in bulk. I paid 25 cents each for them. They measure about 3x4 at the most. Hardly big enough for a photo and the decoration on the pages- I will have to reduce photos and reprint before I can make it work.
I just had to share this adorable prom photo of Katie and Jared.
This was a strapless dress. I took the shawl and made the sleeves for her as we don't wear spaghetti straps or strapless anything in this family. We all wear modest clothing. I can't tell you how much I hear from MALES of all ages how they HATE seeing women wear inappropriate clothing: low cut shirts, bra straps showing, short shorts/skirts/dresses etc. They do not like it contrary to what the manufacturers and hollywood want women to believe. I regularly hear Male teachers/coaches complain about the attire of the students. My husband was a substitute teacher in "middle school" not to long ago and he came home everyday complaining about the short skirts and low cut shirts. He had to stand at the back of the classroom so he didn't have to look at their cleavage as they leaned on their desk or their short skirts as they sat with their legs NOT crossed. This is our youth, stop and think about their age and the consequences of such dress and dress them appropriately!
Women and young girls need to be more aware of this. But you know men, they tell their wives & mothers but no one else, so the way they REALLY feel is not being shared with who really needs to hear it!
What I hear from the teenage and college age boys is that it's bad enough that they have to push improper thoughts out of their heads at school and focus on their studies, but with girls letting it all hang out, Girls and women (teachers included, moms sisters etc...) are not showing respect to young men or older men by what they wear and that is what these boys are telling me as a mom! Just because it's cute to the wearer, doesn't mean it will make her cute to the eyes of the respectable males who see her wearing it. It embarasses them for you! In other words they not only find it distasteful, they are totally embarassed for the female wearing it!
(Have you ever seen a female wearing something where her breasts are showing or her dress/skirt/shorts are to short and you were disgusted?) Well my friends, tell your daughters and sisters that men feel that way when they see these things too and you don't have to be obese or overweight for men or other women to think it! I know because I hear males say it all the time. They like wondering, not having it all shown to the public.
So that is today's topic and my brag photo! Hope your day is wonderful! I am off to walk on my treadmill and then head outside to continue on our projects- Kay made 2 wood boxes for my strawberries (photos to come later today) and we have to have a dump truck of topsoil delivered as we continue making raised bed boxes in the garden. I absolutely love working in my gardens!
I don't think there is any hobby I have that I enjoy more.
Kay's daughter Kaylynn has started a family blog for her family. There are photos of my sweet wonderful hubby on there! Check them out!
I not sure I like the new typepad system. I am having trouble with it on my dial up and its very frustrating. I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. We did and we are REALLY tired of the rain and pray it stops now and comes back the 3rd week of june and then again the 3rd week of July! Have a great day, I have to see the dentist for a crown and then go to the dry cleaners and stop to get the last of the bedding plants for my planters!
A: The Watercolor Wonder Crayons are amazingly versatile; these artistic-quality, highly pigmented crayons coordinate with our exclusive colors and can be used in many different ways.
Color directly on the stamp. Then spray either the stamp or the paper with water before stamping. If you spray the stamp, the color will look more faded. Spraying the paper results in more vivid color. You can also stamp an image, then spray the stamp with water and stamp again. This will create darker and lighter images.
Color directly on a piece of scratch paper to create a palette, and use an Aqua Painter or watercolor brush to color the image.
Color an image with the crayon, then blend with a watercolor brush. The water soluble crayons make it easy to blend colors.
Color an image without using water. Watercolor Wonder Crayons can be used on any card stock. For best results, use watercolor paper. When stamping and coloring line-art images, the Basic Black Classic Stampin' Pad is the best choice when using Very Vanilla or Whisper White card stock. Use a Jet Black StazOnT pad with all other card stock, including watercolor paper.
I have added a new catagory titled: Today's Topic. This is where I will post items like today's- GAS PRICES. Read this msn article. I love to share things like this that I find with all of you because they effect our lives. Sharing information helps all of us become better informed and there for smarter shoppers! I hope you like this new catagory. I will be sharing some projects as I work on them this week so stay tuned and have a wonderful Sunday during this cloudy Memorial day weekend! May God bless our soldiers and their families for I appreciate each and every one of them with all my heart!
My name is Gwen and I am addicted to scrapbooking supplies. Check out what I bought at Archivers in St Louis last week...
I had a lot of fun last weekend going to Archivers and then on to the TOPS SRD. I was inspired to work even harder at my weight loss. I am drinking 74 ounces of water each day HOORAY! that is a HUGE accomplishment for me because I would rather drink diet pepsi all day long! And I now have a tread mill that I was given for free- yes FREE! Thanks to one of the group members daughters and I am walking 1-2 miles per day for over a week now! HIP HIP HOORAY! Last week I lost 2.25 lbs so I pray I lose about that this week to so I can stay consistent. It's been really hard losing because of my health stuff the last 2 years and I am praying that has evened out enough that I can start losing the 30 lbs required by the doctor. Anyhow- how have your healthy eating changes helped you? I would love to know. See you here next post!
