We took my MIL to dinner on Sunday for Mother’s Day as we will be in Las Vegas, Yeah! These are her gifts. In the bag, I went through all my cards and packaged them up for her. Came up with 35 cards. She sends out cards to everyone, so she loved having all those hand made cards. Then I made her the Purse Photo album with pictures of her and my FIL who will be gone for 8 years on Memorial Day. She couldn’t wait to take that one to Bingo on Monday night. And finally the Bloomin’ Beautiful Portfolio. She told me those cards are for “her special” friends. So we had a great dinner and she loved her gifts. She told me she saves all of the cards I have made for her in the past. Warmed my heart.
It’s been a while since I posted. We are in the middle of re-doing our upstairs bathroom and so I have been painting and cleaning. We haven’t used this bathroom since our kids moved out 3 years ago, so it needs some major work. The linoleum and new sinks have been ordered and this week-end my husband is going to paint the cabinet. We’ve lived in our house now 18 years so its time to redo the upstairs. We remodeled downstairs a couple of years ago. I’m so lucky my husband can do just about anything. He is a Electrical Contractor by trade, but after so many years of abusing his arms, he just can’t do that on a regular basis. So after the cabinet is painted he will put back up the mirrors and change the light fixtures. The bath tub and toilet are in one room and the double sinks are in the other room. The linoleum should be in the following week and the sinks will be here about the 21st of May.
These are the 2 prizes I won. Patty made the clip with the note holder and the Carousel Purse was made by Lene’e Pearson. She also did a presentation and showed us how easy these purses are to make. I’m seeing another class……..
