I survived the holidays!

Hi dear friends and family.  Here it is Dec. 28th and my brain is still in lala land.  You know what, this year Christmas came as it usually does and I for sure I wasn't ready.  All the things I didn't get finished should be a lesson to start earlier next year.  I need to do my own spiritual Christmas this week, Happy Birthday Dear Jesus, Thank you for coming into our lives, Thank you for suffering for all of us so we can be with you someday in heaven.    My goal every Christmas is to be ready early and to sit back and enjoy and reflect on   this beautiful season.    As for the Day, it had its up and downs.  But mostly it went great, the best part was having all my children safely here.  I am so blessed.  I hope your day went well for you and for those whos families could be near that  their presents (physical) warmed your heart as it did for me.  More reasons to say Thank you Jesus!   My love and thanks to all of you for being a part of my life.  Laura

Our Party

Greetings,  I had hoped to write earlier today but remembered Tom and I were meeting with his brothers and their wives in Smithville at the barn.
     I wanted to thank all of you for coming to our special event.  I enjoyed the day and had so much fun with all our laughing.  Even the small evening group of 6 with me had lots of noise and laughter too!  As I said earlier in the day, I have been so blessed to have met all of you through our card making.  I hope we can continue to be friends when I am to old to do this anymore.  Thank all of you who helped me finish my gift project to all of you.  I am glad you liked the small luminaries.  Also thanks all of you who insisted on bringing goodies in.  It was so thoughtful of you and it was a big help to me.  I am touched that you wanted to give me something so thanks to all of you who contributed to my Hobby Lobby gift card.  You know I can make good use of this.  Also thanks to Jo and Karen for my earlier gift of the Iris folding Card book.  Also a big thank you to Judy and Linda for the quilted snowman wall hanging.  Oh and thank you Nancy for the extra container of date pinwheels just for me.  Thanks you all for coming into my life,  I will try to post some pictures that I took soon.  I forgot in the evening till almost everyone left. I did take a couple but I apologize for not getting everyone picture.  Will close for now, God Bless you all, Laura

A cute card and an experiment!

Hi Everyone, I have never tried to attach a video before to my site.  Since I liked the card and the video, it seemed a good time to try.  Tell me what you think.  Would you like to see more type of tutorials like this?  Most of you dont respond to my posts, if you will atleast this time I would appreciate it.  If you dont know how to do this , email me instead.  Thanks, enjoy!   Laura

Our todays workshop!

I want to Thank you all for coming today!  I hope you all enjoyed making the cards.  I was pleased with the day, but you know what I sure was tired at the end.  Thanks to all of you who help clean the stamps for me, it sure makes my job easier,  now maybe  tomorrow I can put everything back where it belongs.  I am looking forward to seeing you all again on the 15th for our workshop celebration..  It is not necessary to bring something to eat that day but I am not going to refuse your help.  Some times I get over my head so your help will be appreciated.  If you do decide to make a food item, would you let me know so I can plan the rest accordingly but remember it is not necessary.  Until then may God keep you safe, Laura
