Gift wrap idea

A friend of mine needed a new coffee maker, so I guess you can guess what is inside….  At work, we receive a lot of paper packing material, it is usually as wide, if not wider than standard wrapping paper.  And it’s perforated so that’s cool too.  I really like the blank canvas that it is and have done this sort of thing many times.  I feel better because I am repurposing “trash”, I get to sketch, and I get to make it more personal to the person who receives it.  And it is sort of retro cool too!  And let’s not forget all the money you save by not buying expensive (or as much) wrapping paper!  With the holidays coming up, before you toss out that packaging, stop to think for just a  moment how you can transform it into something beautiful…

Mini Album - Ladies' Retreat

This was the first year that the 4 of us went on the Women’s Retreat through our Church.  It was such a great, powerful experience to spend the weekend with women of faith and see how we are all fragile, yet so very strong.  For Becky,  I just wanted something so very pretty & girly because I thought it just really reflected her personality – bubbly and happy.  Even in the midst of hardship, she was always so full of joy.

LO Share - Best Buddies

In honor of 009’s recent birthday…

Just a little something to show his relationship with his big brother.  Sometimes rocky, sometimes loving, always amazing!
This was an older eBay kit that never sold, so I decided to use it myself!
