Hi There!

Hi everyone!  Just touching base with you all....I have not been well which has held me back from any coloring or crafting lately.  Although I hope to color tomorrow and have a project up on Wed for you...crossing my fingers & toes...thanks for hanging in there with me.

I thought I'd share a few things with you though to catch up, in case you don't follow my other blog here OR on facebook.  Sick or not I still try to squeeze every moment, every drop of life that I can out of each day...we get this great gift called LIFE so you can't let it waste away.  I try not to even on days I feel as though I may be dying...because I never know if its the last day...but I sure want to enjoy it while I can.

This is my daughter's Senior Year so we just had her last Homecoming Dance this past month .  I'm so thankful that she prefers classy and pretty styles know the "other" trampy kind LOL. But she is picky so I usually order 4-5 dresses online that we both pick out and this one made the cut...we both agreed it was pretty, appropriate and looked lovely on her.

The girls did their own hair and makeup this year...I think they did a lovely job!

Alexa and her BFF Grace....they're a little it should be ;)
No dates...most went in groups...they prefer to have fun with friends instead of the stress
of being with someone...gotta love that!!

Always a Daddy's girl!

My son didn't go this year as his friends and him decided that it was more fun AFTER the dance.  Last year they all went to Buffalo Wild Wing so this year they ALL came here instead for yummies, Xbox wars and lordy knows what else was going on down in that basement with all of them LOL.  So they had a good time. It was his free pass...I told him he HAD to go next year ;)


If you don't follow me on my other blog...well you can if you'd like HERE...but I share all kinds of projects and recipes over there as well.  This is my current post if you'd like to hop over and see...making your own Beautiful Mercury Glass items...easy & inexpensive.


And my CMC Challenge is always ongoing...its open to everyone to join...and runs every 2 weeks.  This week our challenge is all about DUDES, MALES, BOYS...masculine projects...I know some struggle with them but they can be so much fun.  Our sponsor is Dr. Digi's House of Stamps and he has some super humorous images for MALE cards that are irresistable.

Below are my CMC DT's AWESOME creations they made for the challenge....lots of great ideas...if they can rock it..well I KNOW you all can.  So hop on over and join in on the fun!!  And share on our CMC Facebook Page too...we'd love to see you there!

  1. Alexa looks just lovely, Suzanne! I remember my daughter at that age, and they did have so much fun when the girls did things in a group. And as parents, we enjoyed it too, especially when we had ice cream at the local shop afterwards!!

  2. What a nice surprise to turn on my ipad and find your post.. Gorgeous girls.. I cannot believe how fast Alexa (and Riley) have grown up before our eyes.. she looks stunning, but she also looks confident and ready to take on the world... Good job, Mom!!! Just beautiful and priceless photos.. now heading over to check out your tutorial, too! xxx Ann Marie

  3. Alexa is very beautiful and so cool. I love her clean cut good looks. I know you are proud of her cause I read both of your blogs. Love her dress to. You and your Mom are also great looking ladies so I see where Alexa gets her looks.
