Mine has started with a bang!
I hope you haven’t given up on me the past few weeks; ‘cause I’ve got lots share.
I guess I’ll start off with the announcements “Hot Off The Press“..
We are expecting a new bundle of joy in about 7 - 7 ½ months. Nooooo, not me.. My oldest daughter Cecily is having a baby.
Now I know what you are thinking… “But Tonya, you are to young to be a grandma.” .. I know, right? (can you imagine how my dad feels about becoming a “great grandpa”.. hehehe
But its not about me though.. I know Cec is going to be a wonderful momma.. And I am going to eat up every bit of grand-parenthood, just like my mom did.. I just wish she were here to share this with us.
Now for what I have been working on..
Here is a banner that I made for my neighbor and friend Gigi.. We went on a trip to Michaels and I asked her to help me pick out some pretty papers. Of course she picked shades of purple (her most favoritest color). Unbeknownst to her, she was picking out what would be used in my top secret project for HER.
And here is a project that I am working on for my BFF Kimmie… It’s not always “what you see, is what you get”.. Maybe this is just inspiration; maybe not.. You just have to use your imagination until I am finished.. ;)
I entered Heather’s “Jewels of the Sea” pendant swap and here are my contributions.. Can you believe I finished them a whole 3 ½ weeks before they were due.. Lol… I can’t. All the metal is sterling silver and I used Swarovski crystals and pearls, and gemstone. Hope they like them.
Annnnnd… Tomorrow I will post pics of the powder room downstairs that I have almost finished. Just need to do the baseboards and add the cabinet above the toilet and other little bits of décor then I can call this room complete. Wouldn’t you know it is the smallest room in the house.. LOL.. But hey, ya gotta start somewhere right.. ;)
And now its time to share some of the goodies that I received..
Lookie what little surprise I got in the mail yesterday from my BFF Shay.. Straight from Russia is this most gorgeous ribbon trim. I LOVE it! Thank you so much girlie! You know I will find something scrumptious to create with it.
Well I told you I had a lot to share.. LOL
Maybe now I have learned my lesson and will post more regularly. Hehehe
Have a wonderful day all!
