I've made these observations today:
1. If I have known you for five years and you still don't know my name, you are a putz.
2. If you have one big dog and two little dogs, but there seems to be shortage of little dog poo in the backyard, you have a problem...note to self - do not kiss the big dog on the lips for a while.
3. I do not think Crocs (and you know I love them) are appropriate footwear for a grown man to wear to church.
And now for the good stuff:
Tomorrow (January 29) is my brother, Ian's, birthday. He will be 29 - so pop on over to his blog and wish him happy birthday:) He also has some fabulous pictures posted of Iraq and the people there.
Miss S's after school class made these cards for Ian - they are on there way to Iraq as we speak:)
I received my Valentine Altered CD from the swap I did with Swap-Bot - look at this beauty that I received:)
This is from the talented Miss Beth - I love that she decorated both sides - I've never even thought to do that. It is hanging in the front room as my first official Valentine's decoration for this year.
And here is what I made for the same swap:
As you can see I've made a few extras...which will be appearing in random mailboxes between now and Valentine's Day:)
MaryAnn sent me some really cool Japenese stationery and Seattle playing cards from her recent trip - she also sent me these beautiful JOY cards for Christmas - I can't remember if I've posted them yet. And the intial cards are from Kelli. Thank you ladies for making me feel so loved:)
Lastly - I received my embroidered patches from Faun's swap - the flower patch is from Kristin but the other two did not have names on them:( If you recognize them, please let me know. All three patches are so beautiful and I love the variety in styles. Faun sent me a little packet of iron on's as a thank you - I haven't decided what I will use them on yet.
