Special Son

Special Son

The first card is a card I made for my son. My hubby and I had decided to get him a gift after school got out for the summer. We felt he was deserving of something special, because he’s an awesome kid and had overall 4.5 GPA for his Freshmen year. Anyways we got him a gold charm of a saxaphone for his necklace. (that’s what he plays) When we gave it to him it was shortly after Father’s Day, and I thought , why don’t we make today June 30th Son’s day. We just had Mom’s Day and Dad’s Day,why not Son’s Day. So we sang him a hokey song and surprised him with it. This is the card that I made him.

The inside reads: when you were born you brought us joy,
as you’ve grown you make us laugh,
now that you’re almost a man,
you make us proud!

I have started working on my sister’s 50th Birthday gift. I am making her a scrapbook of her entire life up until the age of 18. I have quite a bit of time to work on this, her birthday isn’t until next February. This is the second album of this size I have tackled. My oldest sister turned 50- two years ago and the album was 40+pages thick! My son keeps reminding me that it took me almost a year to complete hers,so I better get busy! I have managed to do about 10 pages this past week. Yes It’s a start! I spend to much time picking out paper (per my hubby) and I should just jump right in,because no matter what I do she will appreciate it.


Great Family

I am so blessed to have a family that is so layed back and doesn’t care what we do and if we stay home because of rising gas prices.  We enjoy just hanging out in the house and doing our own thing, but generallyin the same room.  My hubby is an artist so he sits beside me while I am srapping and does his art work and my wonderful son is on his laptop either looking up music or helping me with my blog along with his own.  I am truly blessed!  NancyBest recent family photo I have.
