Out there somewhere

My Aunt sent me an email that has this quote in it. A lot has been happening lately and has been rough...not sure who or where to turn to...who to trust and what not. But reading this quote gave me reassurance. I always know that God is there no matter what.

I just wanted to share it with all of you that follow.

Have a blessed day.


"May today there be peace within . May you trust that you are exactly where you are meant to be. May you not forget the infinite possibilities are born of faith in yourself and others. May you use the gifts that you have received, and pass on the love that has been given to you and love. It is there for each and every one of us"

I wanted to share with you a few of the items we made at our Mother's Day club in April.

This is a quart paint can with a card to match. I gave these to our "former" babysitter as a small token of our gratitude. Jen is a wonderful babysitter and an awesome friend and I hope we will employ her again this fall!!!

We made these at our club meeting for Valentine's day. I made about 30 of them for people at work. They are so much fun to make.
Here is another sample.

Here is the scrap book page we made. I know it's not the best picture.

I know I"ve been bad and haven't updated in a long long time....hanging head in shame....

We have recently been hit with an unscheduled life change. After 14 1/2 years, Jeff lost his job at Fed Ex! They pretty much shut the Akron office and those that were left have to move their office to the Green location. It hit us pretty hard and still is. But the fact that he did get a severance is wonderful b/c we all know of people that have been let go and get NOTHING!!! My faith in God rreassures me that I know we will get through it, plus with all our wonderful family and friends we will be fine!!! I know we will have our days and so we just take it one day at a time.

Jeff is learning how to do laundry and ironing!!! WOOHOO on my part!!! Soccer starts this week, so he will keep his mind on that as he coaches Team Lightning!

This picture was taken last Saturday at our annual Easter Egg hunt done through our youth group at our church.

Super Bowl Sunday

Our friends invited us over tonight for the big game. I don't honestly care who wins...I'll just watch for the commercials:)

Any way, they always make all the food, won't let us bring anything, so I made one of these Gable boxes and we put an Apple Bee's gift card inside to show our appreciation!!

The instructions are here at Splitcoast: http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/resources/tutorials/gablebox/

A very easy box. If you are in my stamping club, we will be making one of these this month.

Have a great Sunday!!!!

Out of touch

I know, it's been forever since I posted! I think I've had the winter blues....


I'll share a picture of Adam out in one of the snow storms we've had this winter!
