More bad weather

We've had more bad weather here, its been great, NOT! I'm ready for nice weather again. This weather has been messing with the internet, so I keep getting disconnected and kicked off. Its not been fun. There's really not been much going on here, I've been scrapbooking at my moms, trying to get her into some new thing. She tried scrapbooking on canvas for the first time this week. I've got her using glimmer mist on all kinds of things and embossing on all sorts of stuff. And shes been having a blast! I love that I can show her all these new things.

Oh ok, So I say there's not been a lot going on, But there has been. We got my parents pool up and running, so we've been in it quite a bit, my oldest son graduated from Pre-K, And that was so cute! They did such a great program, it was so fun to watch! I also got a TON of fabric at a yard sale. These girls owned a fabric store and closed it down, so they had a yard sale and decided to get rid of it, and at a great price! I got a ton of Amy Butler fabric and Basic grey. I love them and I got a sewing machine for mothers day so I've started on a quilt already Well heres a little picture of a small portion of what I got! I'll post more when I get one done. I'm in the process of finishing a Basic Grey quilt with the sultry line. Love it!

Mothers Day and a birthday

Everyone knows that tomorrow is Mothers Day, but its also my nieces birthday, But were celebrating her birthday today. Well I got her some of the stuff she wanted and then I made her a cute little picture frame with flowers and butterflies and a little bling and a little box that I added little feet to, painted it, modpodged it, added some flower and a little bling. I didnt do anything to extravagant because I know its going to get played with a lot and possibly tore up, but I think she'll like them.

I also made something for my sister for mothers day. I had taken a Donna Downey class that worked with canvas and that was my first time, well I liked it so much that I decided to use canvases to make something for her for Mothers day. I used and embroidery hoop and made a cute, ( in my opinion), little display with her daughter in a little fairy costume.

Off to get ready for the birthday party, night all.......

Bad weather, Donna Downey and Growing up.....

OMG! There has been so much going on here, well being sick and running around to doctors offices consentley! There are 3 of us in my family that had there ear drums burst this past week and we had some really crappy weather too.

Last Friday the weather here got terrible! We had tornado's all over the place, thunder and lightning storms and lots of rain!I was one of the ones with a bursting ear drum and its not been fun at all. My mom was actually in the process of taking me to the ER when we saw bad rotation and the tornado coming down, my mom asked me if I could deal with the pain and I said yeah and to hall butt home! We did and that tornado touched down to the right of where we saw it. That was crazy! We made it to my parents house, witch was where my kids were sleeping at the time because of me going to the ER. Well we got them and my dad helped us all get into the storm shelter. We stayed in the storm shelter until after midnight. That was the 1st time ever for me being in a storm shelter. But I'm just glad that we had it to go into.

Well the next morning I went to the doctor, most of the pain I had been in all night before was pretty much gone and sure enough I had a busted eardrum. But I also had a class to go to with Donna Downey. I had already paid and everything and I so wanted to go!!! Well after I left the doctors I went to the class and she is so great! She's the sweetest!! I couldn't hear real great because of the whole busted ear drum thing but I had so much fun! I didnt finish the album in class, but As soon as I finish it I'll post pictures, I love it thought and I will be doing more things like it I think!

And last but certainly not least, I took my oldest to school today and there was an extra sing up sheet at sing in, I looked at it and it said Graduation quests. We were suppose to write down how many guests we thought we would be bringing to our child's graduation. It took me a few minutes to realize that my son was fixing to graduate!! It may only be an elementary school graduation, but it surprises me how fast it snuck up on me. Hes fixing to graduate and schools going to be out. Its crazy! It just blows me away how fast things happen, my little guy is growing up!lol
