Well, the card I'm sharing today is bright and cheery. It's made with the " Life is Beautiful " Collection from Fancy Pants Designs. You can see my post here on the Fancy Pants Designs Blog.
What else has been going on? Well, the boys spend the night here last Friday night. We invited them over for a movie night. I have photos of that to share, but I didn't want to drown you in more photos than I already am, so I'll share those in another post.
Earlier in the evening before pizza an movie time, the kids and I made up these treat bags to take to the police officers to show our appreciation for all they do. It really broke my heart the other day when something came on the news showing the police in a negative light. Wyatt talked a bit about it and I was so surprised at how aware he was about the this subject. Kids pick up so much more from background TV and adult conversations than we realize. It made me really sad that the kids even have to hear these scary things. I know they have great parents and are being brought up well. But I thought why not do a fun project with them to show them they can count on the offices here. I found this idea floating around on FB and decided we would put some bags together.
I know Emmett would be impressed, but with Wyatt being a bit older, I wasn't sure if he'd be as entertained.
ummm.... as you can see, he liked it also.
Wes showed them all around and even took us over to the fire department to have them show us around there. The boys loved sitting in the fire trucks, seeing the water rescue boats, and HONKING the big horns. lol
Here is the printable if you want to use it.
She recovered this old chair I gave her and .... now.....
ummmm I want it back now lol
It turned out so great!
She's putting together a little reading area in her classroom. (English teacher :)
I love seeing old things getting new life!!!
I little fabric, a little paint.. and you have fun new things.
She said she's still working on it when she sent me the photos, but it's looking awesome.
As for me, I'm still working on going thru things and purging. I've been on this kick for a couple of years now. It's still hard for me to part with things at times. I have to tell myself I can really like something without having to HAVE it. Especially hard for me to refrain from picking up more things when I'm at a thrift store or sale. ( REALLY hard to pass up good deals) lol Sometimes I still cant.. but I'm so much better about it than I used to be. I like the feeling of not having so much STUFF. (trust me I still have plenty) . Luckily I also love organization, so I do pretty good with concentrating all the crap I have so it's not out of control. lol
It's a work in progress.
I continue to simplify!
Thanks as always for taking time to stop by.
I hope your week is going well.
