Welcome Baby Boy

No I am not having a baby boy again but I did almost seven years ago and this is a little clear mini album of his first photo shoot at one month old. These pictures were NEVER scrapped. They are hanging on my wall in a collage. The photos were taken by Gene Hutnak, Smithfield RI. As I recall it was a disaster of a shoot. He cried almost the whole time or wanted to be nursed and had severe eczema on his face that had to be touched up in every photo. LOVE remembering when he was so tiny.... well at 8lbs I guess not! My last DT project for Bella Art is complete!!!! Look for the new June Bella bag to be revealed this week. Lots of texture and bright amazing colors coming your way!!!!

Mothers Day 2009

I woke up Mothers Day morning hearing Danielle yell "JACK!", ...SPOOKS!", outside my bedroom window at 7 am sharp. I sat up and said "Greg...Is that Danielle on the front lawn?" He told me she was doing something for me and to go back to sleep. Maybe she was putting a big bow on a nice new convertible, I thought. Matthew woke up next and immediately showered me with mothers day wishes, kisses and hugs. I had a beautiful handmade card tucked under my pillow that he proudly pointed out and I was amazed at how perfectly written the words were. When it was safe to look...out my window was this lovely rose petal message M O M with a heart. How sweet! She is a romantic just like me and knows how to win my heart. I recieved not one but two gorgeous hanging baskets from my husband and a beautiful blue sun catcher hand picked by Matthew. We went to Down City Diner for brunch with Granny, Auntie Cheryl and Uncle Ed then Daddy made my favorite Norchena dish for dinner. Such a great mothers day!!!

My seeds are progressing nicely. I have beeen nurturing them, keeping them moist and moving them in and out of the house and turning them. Yard work is done and looks great. The rain has helped everything along nicely. Today is a scrapping day, so hopefully I will have something scrap related to share later.... Have a great day!!!

10 years...

This year is the 10th year without my mom. She is with me all the time in little ways though, and yesterday while working in the yard, these little purple grape hyacinthia's made me smile and happy because they were hers, came from her garden. I will always have them where ever I live because they remind me of her and make me happy. Happy May. Happy Spring. Remember not to take the little things for granted.
