Happy Birthday to Sean Patrick

This year was Sean's turn for us to be with him in Virginia for his birthday but, due to work obligations I was not going to be able to go. This year has been full of problems and disappointments and this was just one more to add to the heap. WAh Wah WAh! Then John found out he would not be working that week so I suggested he go on without me. He thought it over and decided he would go but with one condition. The condition was that I not call and tell them he was coming, talk about a gag order! How hard it was for me to not get on the phone that day and let them know he was on the way! Sean truly was surprised when Poppie John got there. Later on he had his birthday party at on of the games stores up there. They had a great time and another surprise visitor, Mario showed up. How fun! I love you Sean Patrick!

It really is all about the little things

My husband knows I have been struggling with working night shift along with a lot of other aspects of my life. He also knows how very hard I have been trying my hardest to put a good spin on everything so, coming home and finding something as little as a chocolate cupcake is huge! Put a big smile on my face, thank you darlin. Nothing could be better on this cold rainy morning.

Guitar Pickin'

Finally got some pics of Patrick with his guitar. Don't get to hear him play much these days. Back when he was in high school there were kids here all the time with guitars, amps and drums, oh my! LOL All the same I am glad to know is still plays when he can.

A mIni Halloween Album

I could not wait for Halloween to get here this year. I had all these little ideas running around in my head to do for this mini album. I had this Basic Grey paper from the Ambrosia collection that was in Halloween colors and one of the papers had butterflies on it so, why not? I took a chip board butterfly and glammed her up with paint, beads and stickles and there she is, all ready for trick or treating! Mixed a variety of embellishments that I had been collecting for several years( great stash buster). Burlap just says fall and Halloween to me and added so much fun texture. Sean is in the Ghoul costume that had a device built into the mask so you could pump fake blood into the mask. You could hardly see the blood in the pictures so I added red stickles which added a super cool affect. Some of the pages are paper bags folded which make big pockets for the journal tags to go in. It is a chunky little album filled with lots of yummy things.
