Leaving today ...

Just from looking at the card,
can you guess where he's going?

I'm sure his family isn't excited,
but I'm guessing he is.
On to new adventures,
new learnings, new friends
and a new life.

Congratulations, Christopher!

It rolls around every August

What a wonderful day.
A day to let somebody know you value their friendship.

Kendra's friends, Andrea and Victoria,
and Glenda's Secret Sister

My (not-so) Little Friend

I cannot believe Julia turns 16 today.
WHERE does the time go?
Gosh - I remember the day she was born.

Cards to her certainly have changed.
She used to get little girl cards.
Now her cards are much more sophisticated.
Just like her.

Happy birthday, Julia.
Enjoy every second of your special day.

One more cousin celebrates

Hmmmmmmmmm ... if she's not a blood cousin,
but married to my cousin,
does that make the two of us cousins?
Doesn't matter.
In my eyes, I love her like she's blood.

Happy birthday, Lois.
Enjoy your day to the fullest.

Not my norm ...

Got some of those new inks a while back.
I'm sure I'm not the only one that buys things.
Things I just "have to have"
and then leave them in the packaging
for days/weeks on end.

Finally got them out and started to play.
This is actually the very first experiment
and I'm quite pleased with the result.

Once I decided I liked it well enough to actually mail it,
I chose this image.
Top to bottom, lighter to darker
and the colors kinda match.

You know Vicki ...
she's my friend that knits nests.
She loves going to farm to table events
and this image reminds me of her.

Happy birthday, special friend.

Happy birthday to me

I'm not sure which birthday I was celebrating here.
Maybe my seventh?
Must have been a party going on.
See all the plates, forks and spoons?
And a store-bought cake?
Unheard of!

I do know that this was my 10th birthday.
It was a surprise party with all of my friends
and my sister.
And yes, I was very surprised.

I remember my mother allowing me
to choose whatever I wanted to wear that day.
But I don't remember how they
got me out of the house.
Or where everybody was
when they yelled, "SURPRISE!!"
