Anna and Emma headed off to the mall this week to make a Build-A-Bear friend for Emma. Emma is super attached to her new rain boots that Sissy got her for her birthday. She wants to wear them every where, rain or no rain. When Sissy got new rain boots too, Emma seemed to think they should both wear their boots to the mall.
Anna graduated from high school this week. She graduated Magna Cum Laude, in the top 3% of her class. We haven't gotten her official rank yet, but she was in the top 20 out of a class of over 600. We are so proud of her, she has worked very hard.
Jacob also had a graduation this week, from the 8th grade. We are thrilled that he also finished the year on the honor roll.
I can't seem to post lately without sharing a little from my garden. This week the climbing miniature roses that are winding up onto my porch rails have begun blooming. There must be a thousand delicate tiny pink buds.
The peonies have also started blooming. I have several varieties. This one is one of my favorites. It is such a beautiful mix of soft pink and cream. I wish they would last all season.
I *think* I am finally done with my big Cricut assignment. I could have done more, would have liked to have done more, but I think I am going to call it done and send in what I have. I am not sure if I can share photos of the projects yet. I wish I could because a couple of them I really love. I should know soon. So here is what I am left with to tackle, a scrap room that is in complete and udder chaos. I feel uneasy just looking at it. This is just the tip of the iceberg. There are stacks and piles of papers and alterable goods all over the floor. I am normally so much more tidy as I work but something happened this weekend that caused my good habits to fail. Ugh. Where to start cleaning? Right now I have my back to it all since I am at the computer. If I don't turn around I am okay!!
If you are a St Louis scrapbooker, papercrafter, stamper, etc, I think you are going to love what I have to tell you!
I am so excited to announce the official opening of a brand new forum and gallery dedicated to scrapping in the St Louis metro area. We welcome anyone and everyone who wants to talk about scrapping, papercrafting, stamping, mixed media, or whatever and who lives in the greater St Louis area (or there abouts).
We hope to see all of our St Louis girls there!
