Birthdays!!'s my birthday! I'm really not sure how I feel about it. So far not thrilled. Seems like it comes a little sooner every year! Just sort of creeps up on me! Yeah, that's it....creeeepy! It's creepy that I am getting so old. It does not, and I repeat, does not seem right!

It's my husband's Birthday too! Or it was his birthday, two days ago, on the 28th. I made him this card from an old clipping I found in a box and the funny(or sad) thing is, that this birthday ran along the same lines for him. Long story... with an employee that has done some pretty bad stuff that we have to deal with....anyway, In the midst of all of this we will still laugh and find something good. God has a way of turning our Lemons into the best Lemonade!!

(oh, just a note....Don did get his bicycle back)

You're the Queen Award!

Cassandra from My Artful Adventures is having a Giveaway! (see her blog)and has also started a wonderful "You're the Queen Award". The idea being that you give the award to 2 or more deserving ladies with the instructions for them to....take a little time and treat themselves like a Queen. The Queen that they surely are, but sometimes need reminded to pamper and indulge themselves a little.
So..... I am to pass on that award and here are a few of the ladies I think are more than deserving!

Glitterfest 2009!

This was the cutest Sign (made by Sheryl from
welcoming everyone to

Before the show, hanging decorations at the entrance

A shot of me(on the left) at my booth. I have to admit I was a bit "frazzled" but of course, now, I am a
seasoned veteran! ha ha

Sheryl and Diane had all the nooks and crannies decorated. This was just a small shot of the entry to the show. (Most of my pictures didn't turn out very good) This doesn't really capture it that well, but trust me, it was glittery, sparkly and welcoming....

A couple of new shadow boxes I had done for the show.

Another shot of some pieces I had on display

This is a montage of some great stuff by Christine Rose Elle

since most of my photos didn't turn out well I just made another little collage of some more wonderful creations.
