I'm BAAAACK!!

Hey Everybody! - It is sooooo good to be back! We finally got our new computer and we are up and running - my e-mail is still not working but at least I get to visit with you guys. Hope everyone is having a great start to the year. Thank you all for not bailing out on me since it has been nearly three weeks since I last chatted with ya. I have truly missed you all!

So I know everybody is probably into cleaning projects and trying to organize. I've made an attempt at my kitchen - organized and labeled all my cabinets but you know - I'd much rather do something else - somethin' fun - like paint. So here is a couple of the projects that took up much of two days last week but - I was so happy to do it 'cause they are for a dear friend and customer who is about to have a very special delivery - twin girls. Sweet lil' Morgan and Marlee.




Their names in covered letters that I believe she is going to hang over each window in their absolutely darlin' nursery. It is green, pink and chocolate brown!





And this was my lil' gift to her. I know she will be getting and has already gotten LOADS of cute stuff and especially frames. So I mixed mine up a bit - this is a handmade frame but instead of a picture - I simply put a "M" in it for both the girls!




Oops, and I almost forgot to tell you all - I got a Cricut with my Christmas money - now, I'm not a scrapbooker. I wish I could say that I was - but there is simply no time for that project in my life. But I think I'm gonna be hooked on it anyway - 'cause there is so much you can do with that wonderful invention - here we go - something else to consume my time - but hey - sure is fun!



So I'm sending out an early congratulations to sweet Lori and her family on the upcoming birth of her twin girls. Many blessings and prayers going out to you all.

It's great to be back - Have a beautiful Sunday!
Cathy

Welcome Back! Being without a computer for three weeks must have been terrible! I love the letters and frame that you made for your customer. They are very cute and I'm sure that she'll receive lots of compliments on them when people see her nursery.

So good to see you blogging again!

I love the names! I can't wait until we find out if our grandbaby is a girl or a boy because my DIl wants me to help with the nursery - I am stealing your idea!! (if you don't mind!)
Have a great Sunday, hugs, Linda

Glad to have you back! I love the blue background and the new picture, so pretty. I want to try covering large letters. I just have to come up with the right word. I am going to give that some thought. Love the frame, very nice. I bought a Cricut before Thanksgiving, I love it!
