Happy Father's Day

Happy Father's Day Dad!

Can't be there in person today but soon like in a week I will be home. Hope you are celebrating and doing what you want today! Love ya lots! Another week has zoomed by. Not a crazy busy week, just a week that quickly flew by. Seems they are all that way lately.

Class at Devine Memories on Thursday with Michelle . Colleen was back from Germany so we all had a great evening catching up and working on the album. Below are a couple of pics of the album.

I waited till the last minute, well not really last minute, to work in my next Altered Book. This has been a difficult book to work in due to the bulk of the book. Finally had to do most of the layouts outside the book and glue in. 2 layouts are done and the 3rd is in my head waiting to be put on paper. We will see how close to my idea in my brain the actual layout turns out
This 1st layout I used fabric and images from a novel and just machine stitched to the fabric pretty simple but I liked it

My funky birds. Painted and stamped and embossed these little birds and added feathers for their tails. Patterened paper was painted, misted and distressed and then glued in to the book. I cut out the felt flowers and added them for color.
So it is laundry and lining things up for my trip to Iowa next Sat. Yeap will be on a jet plane heading home for my folks 60th wedding aniversary celebration and to spend a week relaxing and chilling in the muggy Iowa weather. Looking forward to lots of fresh produce from the folks garden. Catch you all later

Oh where have the last 2 weeks gone??

Wow the past 2 weeks have just flown by. Between working some crazy hours at the unit, getting a BBQ pulled together for Warren (leaving after 8 years with us) and helping my sister get ready for my folks 60 th anniversary time is flying. But.. surprise surprise I managed to take a class in between all this.

Warren has been with WSD for 8 years and has been a steadfast, loyal employee. He will be missed by our patients and staff. BBQ we had for him was perfect as we actually got to sit and chat for a long time. I wish him good luck at his new job and with his new endevor Liberal Christian Trio.

Jennifer and John and kids are doing great just so busy working and lots of activities with the kids.

Class with Michelle at Devine Memories this was such a fun album to make in a picture frame. Love it Michelle
Sneek peek of just a little of what I'm doing for the anniversary celebration

Card class at Jan's on the 6th. Fun cards and we missed Colleen as she is in Germany at her son's wedding. It was pretty quiet without her


And lastly a surprise visit from Colleen with Mr Rooster now residing in my home. Love my rooster Colleen and the parrot does
NOT like the rooster. If the parrot gets too loud I sit the rooster next to him and he suddenly shuts up Love it
So on to another week finishing up projects, a class, and hearing all the details of the Germany wedding. Hope everyone is having a great weekend. Catch ya all later
