Sorry its been so long

I have not been posting lately. It was a really trying week. Work was so stressful trying to make sales goals. But the worst of all was the passing of my dear Grandfather. I am not sure even what to say. I know that he is gone but sometimes I forget. I have always known him to be there and not he is just not. It is so surreal. Robb and I are leaving in the morning to drive down for the funeral. I have never been to one and have no idea what to expect or even react. I am really at a loss for what to say or do.

I got my mind off of things a little yesterday and had some friends over. My friends Mathew and Tara came over with there new baby boy, Mason. I say new but he is 3 months old. He was so cute and really well behaved. He really slept most of the time so I got some picture time. He was so peacful.

It was good to get some time to take my mind off things. we went to dinner and played the nintendo wii. It was a goodtime. The picture below is me with my friends Christina (the other brunette) and Tara (the Blonde) She is Mason's mother.
Well I need to go sleep. Going to be long next few days. Goodnight.

A few new things...

I wanted to share a few things with you. Grandpa is still in the hospital and everyone needs to keep him in there thoughts. He has to make it until Monday and they can do surgery. In my opinon if anyone in this world can do it he can. He is one tuff cookie.

On a lighter note I made a new card for my Secert Sister Swap through Paper Crafts magazine. It is a layout from Beate's Weekend Challenge on her Blog freash and fun. I got the stamped Bella image from a nice lady that did not want them. I just love these images. I will have to invest in someone day.

I also wanted to share a picture of a picture frame that I made for a swap. Me and 3 other ladies are making season themed frames. I picked spring as my season. I think that it turned out okay.

Lastly I wanted to leave you with the face of my little bitty. She was having fun with her new toy.

Love you all and have a good night. I will keep you updated on Grapndpa's condition.

Sunday Night

Well I am sitting here watching Sunday night football with Robb and surfing the internet. I thought that I would update you all. Nothing special going on this weekend. We had a day date with the doggie that we are considering adopting on Saturday. I am not sure what we are going to do yet. He ended up being a super sweet doggie away from the shelter. We are weighting the pros and cons right now. I will let you know what we decide. Other than that Robb played soccer today. They lost but at least I got to enjoy the last hot day of the year and Robb got some exercise. I have a card I made the other day that I thought that I would share with you. I got the idea from Beate's Blog. You can find the link on the side bar of the blog. The same nice lady advised me that there was a way to change the blog to allow non users to comment to the postings. Now you call can comment away without having to sign up for anything. I have some other stuff that I am working on. Once I am done I will share them with you all. Have a great night! GO BEARS! :) In honor of Robb and the game I am watching right now.

Card Projects

Hey I wanted to share a few cards that I made. The first is a card I made for a special cause. There is a little girl in Texas that needs some support. Her name is Victoria and she has cancer. Her teacher and with the help of the rest of the USA we are trying to get her at least 1 card from every state. Here is my card that I am sending her. I hope that it brings her a little happyiness.

My other cards that I want to share is for a lady that is part of one of my craft groups. She had was having a bad day. Her sons were mad at her and they decided to take her craft card box and throw it away. So to help replenish her stock I made her a couple of cards.

Back from Vacation

I am back from vacation. I was only gone for a few days but it is hard getting back into the swing of things. Here is a picture I took from the hotel balcony. We had a good time and were lucky that we dodged all the rain.
Hope that you all are doing well. I am hoping to have a few pictures of some projects to post soon. Love you all!

I always knew...

That there was a reason I was so intersted in Roman culture:

You Belong in Rome

You're a big city soul with a small town heart
Which is why you're attracted to the romance of Rome
Strolling down picture perfect streets, cappuccino in hand
And gorgeous Italian people - could life get any better?

Lazy Sunday!

It has been a lazy day. I have been a little under the weather and have just been relaxing today. We are watching the Bears game and eating some dinner. I thought that I would update you all.
Grandpa Potts has been in and out of the Hospital for the last week. He is there again tonight so everyone keep him in your thoughts.
Here is a picture I took of him a few years ago. He is still the same Grandpa through all of this. Cracking jokes and making up stories.
Robb and I will be going on vacation to Myrtle Beach at the end of the week. We are leaving on Thursday and will not be back until Sunday. We are really looking forward to that. I will try to update you all before we leave. But I should have some Beach Pics when I get back. Hope everyone is doing well.

I have neglected you all lately. I have just been slacking a little. Things have been busy and when I have extra time I just sleep. Hope that everyone is doing well!
I last project that I finished was a photo album for Robb's Sister. It was for her birthday. She said that she loved it. I made it out of paper bags. They are not just for carrying your lunch anymore.

I finally got the slide shows to work. I think that they are so cool. If it comes up no pictures then just refersh the browser and it should work. I am going to try to get one together of the new house pics. I will try to get to it tomorrow. Robb will be watching Football all day so what else will I do. :)
