Relaxing in my craft room on a post christmas night
Good evening everyone. Hope you and yours had a fabulous holiday ... and my goodness, didn't the past 24 hours just fly by! We had a fabulous time. My son and daughter-in-law are in town from Colorado, so we had them over as well as my daughter, son-in-law and grandson, Jonas, for our traditional Christmas breakfast and gift exchange. Jonas spent the morning enjoying his aunt and uncle and they quickly learned how to translate the Jonas dialect. He had them running all through the house and the rest of us in giggles. While still not sure of who Santa really is at 2-1/2, he quickly grasped the concept of gift opening and enjoyed each and every gift he received. Between the family and the grandparents, he was definitely spoiled. I made both my daughter and daughter-inlaw sets of all occasion cards for them to use throughout the year. My daughter-in-law, Chrysty, casually mentioned that should I find some time during the year, could I please make her some note cards for her horse people (she has a beautiful horse named Rowdy). Well, after everyone left this afternoon, (and after a quick cat nap), I sat down in my craft room and put together a set of 8 cards for her to take home with her. This horse set is from Clear Stamps, and I just taped off the card to make a square in the center, and then sponged blue for the sky and green for the grass, and then just simply stamped the images in black. They turned out so sweet and I think she will be pleasantly surprised when I hand them to her tomorrow night at dinner.
I am married to my best friend. My DH is a decorated Vietnam Veteran and we've been married now for 29 years. I have two wonderful adult children who are proof that there are at least two things I've done right in my life. They make me so proud. And I have a 3-year old grandson, Jonas, who shows me the world all fresh and new through his eyes - he makes me smile out loud every single day!
