My son loves to read. Loves is a strong word- but he really does. We bought him a 5 book series (Gregor the Overlander) and her read them all in a week. I was a tiny bit bummed, just because he'd gotten through them so fast. But, I was also tickled because he got through them so fast.
For his class gift, we made bookmarks for everyone. With the help of punches (circles & scallops) and stickers & stamps, we dressed up paperclips, did a fun saying from Dr. Suess and stick them in a baggie.
I was at 1st Friday doing some card fronts for a swap when a friend walked in and wanted to make what I was making. She did good!! :) (My pictures will be up of my 3 images once I know April has them in her hands.)
What do you do for a mom who has a lot of kiddo's, is having a new baby, so a baby shower isn't really appropriate? Well, you have a scrapbook shower of sorts! Here is the layout I did for her. I won't be able to be at the get together, however, but I still had fun making it up.
Lots of dangle, sparkle (both in glitter pens & in rhinestones) and cut outs. (Half the flowers on the left hand side are doubled and popped out.)
Bet you can't guess what she's having...
*it's been forever since I've done a 8.5X11 page!!
My nephew Trent is scheduled to have his "big" surgery in the morning, 7am. This one will last 4-6 hours if all goes well. They will be placing 2 rods and 12 screws in his back- a reconstruction for his scoliosis, which is causing breathing issues as his spine is currently crushing his lungs.
Please keep him, he's 6, my sister & hubby (Jenny & Richard) and the doctors in your thoughts and prayers. There is a 50% chance he will be paralyzed with this surgery- and we are all scared about the outcome. The attached picture is Trent the day he got released from his last surgery 2 weeks ago.
Here is the address' where cards can be sent if you would like. The hospital won't be very long (if all goes perfectly, which is what we hope for) but my mom will be bringing the other 2 boys over on the weekend so she will be taking any cars/packages with her.
Hospital address (5-10 days) Trent Davidson 3030 Children's Way San Diego, CA 92123
Home Address Trent Davidson 7138 B Sagebrush Terrance 29 Palms, CA 92277

I *HATE* asking for donations. So instead of doing that (minus the few people that I did ask) I am making stuff for the silent auction. Game plan- make oodles of nifty things to make up for the lack of me having a stuffed envie of money.
It's the end of the end of the school year and no matter- I never can believe when May is over. I am glad it is, but it goes at 120mph and I can never see straight by the end. May 2009 brought: 12K race in Spokane, my mama visitied, the hubs mama visited, N had surgery, found out he broke 2 teeth, the hubs celebrated a birthday, on top of the school stuff.
I have one week left then it's summer vacation.
Then I will be back to my creative juice flowing groove.
Which, I need to get to work on my summer class schedule's don't I... hmmm...
