Thanksgiving festivities and other happenings

Hi everyone-
sorry I've been AWOL. I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving and weekend! I can't believe the weekend is almost over. Anyway, as I mentioned earlier, my step grandma's 75th birthday party was yesterday and I made 100 of her favors. We also had family coming in from Oregon so we had Thanksgiving at my mom's house. I made the turkey, sweet potato souffle, spinach stuffing balls and pumpkin tiramisu- I took most of the pics w/ my phone so I can't share them. The food was great (in my opinion lol!) and the fellowship was even better.

Here is the post-it note holder I made for my grandma's party and

here is some of the food that we ate at Thanksgiving.

As you can see- my mom, stepdad and I are exhausted (look at the bags under our eyes)

To top off the weekend I went to my first black Friday at Walmart- I left empty handed, but stayed around to help my friend fight off the crowds. It was an interesting experience to say the least. Since I was up from 700am on thanksgiving day until 630 am on black Friday- I was pooped and unconscious for most of Friday :P

I am in charge of our office Christmas party this weekend so I'm finishing up the favors and centerpieces, I'll post pics of that when I'm done.

Have a great week and take care and God Bless.

Happy Birthday Cute Stuff

I went yesterday to deliver this birthday card to cute stuff and Lianne and to go shopping of course :S I have only been shopping there for about 6 months, but my collection looks like I've shopped there for years! Yikes. Anyway, I hope she had a successful sale and I wish her many more years of great business. Thanks to her for bringing in such great stuff for us!

card for Noah

Hello everyone-
I hope you are all having a nice Veteran's day holiday-let's remember those who fought or are fighting for our freedom!

I have been busily making 100 favors for my stepgrandma's 75th birthday party at the end of the month and I need to make the favors for our office Xmas party (I'm a co-chair this year)! Whoosh.

More importantly, I have made this card to send to 5 year old Noah Biorkman of South Lyon who will celebrate Christmas early this year.

His parents, Diana and Scott, wanted to make sure he would see the holiday one last time before cancer claims his life. They'll have their own Christmas this weekend.

Noah was diagnosed with neuroblastoma in 2007, when he was 3 years old.

He went into remission, but then relapsed in September 2008. His family is not expecting him to make it to Christmas Day.

If you would like to send him a special Christmas card and send him God's blessings please mail your cards to:

Noah Biorkman
1141 Fountain View Circle
South Lyon, MI 48178

Thanks everyone and have a blessed day.

my october OCS for Shirley

Shirley already posted this on her blog, but I wanted to share w/ you what I made for her. I used a penny black stamp, stickled the tulips and added a bow. I totally suck at making bows so it was a little skewed...grr.

Anyway, she liked the card and that's the main thing.

Have a great week!
