Prom '09

Here's the prom pictures I promised. Casey is wearing the red dress. She went with my dear friend's son, Matt, who Casey grew up with. They had a blast. I'm the other one in the red (I'm partial to red). They were going to hook up with a big group of friends for group pictures but the other girl in this picture was so late they couldn't do that or they would be late and not let in to the prom. The pictures we took and theirs at the dance turned out great! Remember your prom days? Except for the clothes I think the rest of prom traditions have stayed the same. Anyway, thanks for looking and listening to me ramble on. Have a great week !

Thank Ewe (again)!

One can't have enough thank you cards on hand. I like to have a supply of them at school because once in a while I get a little gift from my little darlings (no I don't mean my own two kids) and this way I won't forget to thank them if I have these cards on hand. So, I think winter has returned to Chicago. We are supposed to get another 3 inches of snow tonight. I'm praying real hard the weather man was wrong. We haven't had snow for a while now and it's been great. But this is normal for this neck of the woods. One day it's in the 60's and the next day it's snowing, go figure!
Last night was prom night around here. Casey went to her junior prom and had a blast. As soon as I get some pictures on the computer I'll post one. I know it was early for prom but it was just a junior prom. The girls (and guys) looked so nice, but boy have the dresses changed since I went (as Casey say, "back in the day"). So this past week we had prom and we also got our drivers license. What a week! I don't know if I like this driving business yet. She seems to find any excuse to go out just to drive. Casey even offered to drive her brother to his friends house.
Before she didn't even know he still lived with us. Teenagers!! What do you expect! Anyway, have a great week and thanks for stopping by!!

Thank You!

So, last night I found my mojo (finally). I had to make a bunch of thank you cards for my kids to send out. They each just had birthdays and Dan made his Confirmation ( I didn't expect him to receive any gifts). Now that the cards are made the next task is to get them to jot down a note in each one and send it out. That'll be the hardest part. Oh well! Now I'm off to my second job these days, bingo. I help out at a school that does bingo. We have alot of fun. High School tuition has to be paid somehow!! So have a great day and Happy Spring!!

Get Well (yes, again)!

Another get well card. Just a quick post for now. I am in the middle of making cards and had to check something out on the web first so I thought I'd post this one and run. Once I get my mojo going I can't stop for even a minute. Lately it's taking a lot to find it. So, have a great weekend and thanks for stopping by.

Thank Ewe!!

Here is one of my favorite thank you stamps I have. I've used it quite a bit. The patterned paper is from Archivers (and my scrap drawer) the rest of the paper is SU. So, this is a big weekend here in Chicago. We have a huge Irish population here in Chitown so needless to say Let the Parades Begin!! Casey is in one of the parades with her marching band. Now all we have to do is pray for nice weather and I mean temps above 50. Otherwise it's a cold day. This is just a short, quick post. Have a great weekend and TOP OF THE MORN' TO YA!!

Under the Weather

Just a quick post today. I stayed home from school this week a few days so I was busy making cards. Here is one I paper pieced. Sometimes I think the image turns out better when you do it this way. I really like how this card turned out. The image is from MFT. The paper I'm not too sure about, it was in my scrap drawer. Off to run many errands. Tomorrow my son makes his confirmation and all he wants special to eat afterwards is Oreo pie from Bakers Square. That's an easy one to do. So, I'm off to buy some pie. Have a great weekend and thanks for stopping by.

Get Well

Here is a really simple card I made for a neighbor of mine. Isn't this little guy cute?! I think he is an SU image (I was at a friends house when I stamped him and can't remember where he is from).
Once again, the public schools around here are off for the day (Casimer Pulaski day) and my school is not. That's okay, I have a great class this year. Anyway, thanks for stopping by.
