Mom's Day at Kappa Delta with Kaitlyn

We had another wonderful Mom's day with Kaitlyn. Brunch was served and they had all sorts of goodies, bacon, sausage, eggs, hash browns, biscuits and gravy, and fruit. We than listened to an accapella singing group, they sang a special song to the new house mom, I laughed so hard I was crying. Kaitlyn invited her Grandma so she joined us this year. After the entertainment we had a moms meeting to decide what needed to be worked on with the money from the silent auction--they decided the study rooms needed to be updated and more functional. So after that it was on to the silent auction. The tables were packed with all kind of goodies, I should have taken a picture but didn't. I made the K-State bag above for the silent auction. We won a basket with coffee goodies in it. I also bumped into a mom who I went to Jr high with years ago. Her daughter is a senior so good thing we had a chance to talk this year.

Sweet Liberty Swap

I received this swap package from Cindi, we were swap partners in the Sweet Liberty swap that Amy  hosted. She sent this sweet doll door hanging, and all these wonderful goodies! Thanks Cindi.

Cindi and I both sent fireworks to each other!

I started with this Old Glory stitching, wasn't sure how I was going to finish it, I kept playing around with it till I liked something.  I added hangers and attached it to a branch so it could hang, I meant to tea stain it but forgot.   You can see the finished project in the above picture. Sometimes I think I know how I'm going to finish something but after I'm in the project  they seem to take a different turn. Does that happen to you ?

Mad Hatter Mother/Daughter Girl Scout Tea Party

Our Girl Scout Troop hosted a Mad Hatter Mother Daughter Tea Party. The girls made cucumber sandwiches and turkey sandwiches. We also had veggie trays, pretzels and popcorn.  A Mom to two of the Brownies made the  yummy cupcakes. We had activities set up for the moms and daughters: the build a house of cards, flamingo golf, guess what your mom/daughter would choose and the photo booth. The big hit was the craft table to make picture frames for the pictures. On each table were a packet of games to play while waiting, word search or crossword and a few coloring pages.  We also played a game where the package was passed around to the person who fit the description read.  We ended with door prize drawings.

Swap Package

I received my envelope swap from Cynthia and she filled it with all these goodies! She made this Grubby angel hanging, patriotic cards, note pad and she bought the bunny and added on to it.
Thanks Cynthia it was a fun swap. Thanks to Tammy for hosting the swap.

Below are the goodies I sent to Cynthia--

I love this little bag and hope to make one for me to keep. I use to cross stitch years and years ago, the more kids I added to our family the harder it was to start and stop and remember what I was doing. I've been doing a little more but I can't cross stitch at night, I didn't count very good and ended up making the box around the stitching first (why I don't know) when I finished the W I realized the S was not going to fit, so I had to rip that whole side out. I did get it done and it doesn't look too bad. The pattern was a free from .

I also made my own mailing envelope from a Trader Joe's Bag and yes I found it on Pinterest.
