Playing dress-up

Holy weight loss goals Batman! I thought I'd wow the kids and show off my wedding dress, with me in it! I wasn't sure I could do it. Last time I tried I couldn't get it zipped nohow. But after a few months of self discipline, healthy dieting, and exercise, here I am in my teeny tiny dress!
(Pay no attention to the just-out-of-the-shower hair)
This one makes me look like I had my forehead flattened as an infant, but it's just Katy's photography work:)
Happy mom of four!

Fun cards, and Brindy's book club

First of all, I just have a confession to make. I made a mistake and went a whole $4 over on the groceries this week. Very bad I know, but hey, I'm human and I wanted a huge pile of fresh fruit! Now with that out of the way, here are some pictures of the cards and stationary I have been making from catalogs and magazines. Click to see larger image!
These cards were made from pieces cut from magazines. There's a lot of blank space on ads and also some very nice designs that you can layer and then mount the entire thing on card stock or any heavy paper to make post cards, or greeting cards, or even full pages to write a letter on! It's really fun and easy and super relaxing! Try it! Go see what you can find in that stack of outdated catalogs and get to work!

Here are some pics from some of Brindy's book club meetings she is having once a month with her little friends. It only lasts an hour. I usually make some treats for it (I like that sort of thing) and each girl brings a book to share with the others. Sometimes we exchange books until the next month's meeting.
