Ornie Swap

I participated in Amy's Ornie swap again this year. I sent in 4 ornaments and received these 4 ornaments in the mail!

This star ornie is from Amy at Bumblebee Lane. Thanks!

These candy canes I think are from YarniGras! I can't find the tag to read at a closer range then in the picture! Thanks!

This cute snowman is from Sandi at the The Primitive Skate. Thanks!

This sweet reindeer is from Wendi from Ravenwood Whimzies. Thanks!

Harvest Swap and an update

I was in Amy's Fall swap and my swap partner was Cindi from Cindi's Corner. She sent a couple other things but I couldn't find them when I took the picture. Thanks Cindi!! It was fun doing the swap with you.

I'm the PTA president at my youngest daughters school this is the 2nd year and our last one at the local grade school. Between PTA and Girl Scout's and the rest of everyday life it keeps me busy, so I've neglected my blog.

Some of my fall decorating!

Part of our Girl Scout Troop making turkeys before cleaning tables at the community Thanksgiving dinner.

Amy as Pikachu and her friend as a minion for Halloween.

Neewollah  Marching Band Festival-- My 16 yr old plays the clarinet in the band. This was the second year we have went and helped with lunch and dinner for the kids. It was a fun all day event.

Summer Flowers

Our butterfly bushes

I did some flower moving this summer and hope next summer it pays off. I thought I took more pictures but I couldn't find them on my phone.

I have no idea what this is but I let it grow thinking it would turn into something nice. I finally cut it down.

Patriotic Makeover

A couple years ago I bought this cross stitch at a thrift store. It was matted in a frame and just needed some priming up. I unfortunately did not get a before picture, I was too eager to get it out of the blue mat. I tea dyed it, painted a smaller frame and now it make me happy!
