Locks of Love....Before & After

I am so proud of my 10 year old grand-daughter who decided to grow her hair long and then have it cut for Locks of Love. She heard about this organization from someone and told her parents that is what she wanted to do. It is through selfless dedication she did this to support a mission to help children suffering from long-term or permanent hair loss due to an illness.

Time Flies...

Gosh, Drew, it is so hard to believe you are graduating into Middle School. It seems like just yesterday we were at your graduation from Kindergarten. As you move into a new chapter of your life, just know that Gram and Pop are extremely proud of you. You have done amazing through your school years. It seems as though you were on the honor roll most of your school years and I pray you will continue to strive for excellence through your Middle and High School years. Congratulations and just remember how much we all love you.

What a beautiful morning...

It's hard to believe that it is mid May. The weather is just gorgeous here....nice cool mornings and beautiful afternoons. A simple thing, like the geraniums on my front porch steps, makes me happy. As I look around my yard there are so many things blooming. I have day lillies, beautiful roses, and gerbera daisies just to name a few. The grass is freshly mowed and ohhh sooo green. There are bird nests in my ferns and my ivy, waiting for new babies to hatch. As I look around I am in awe with all of God's creations.

Thank you for a beautiful morning!

What a great weekend....

What a wonderful weekend I had. I was actually off work, which was very nice. We try to rotate between having the grandchildren spend the night with us and this weekend was Cassidy's turn. She came over on Friday night and we watched "Finding Nemo". On Saturday we got up and she went with Pop to get doughnuts...her favorite. In the afternoon we went in the spa and then I painted her nails and gave her a foot massage. Now that I'm writing this, it sounds like she's the one who had the great weekend. Her daddy came and picked her up in the afternoon and I collapsed after that.

We had a beautiful church service on Sunday, which was wonderful because we have been having some controversy there. I truly believe we need to learn to have the patience to wait for God to intervene. As humans we are so impatient and want things to happen in our time frame, but that is not the way God intends for it to be.

Tonight I am looking forward to teaching my second digital class at Sassy Scrapper. I always get stressed before a class but for some reason I am excited about this one and not worried at all. See you tonite girls.

Brain Dead

It has taken me nearly a whole day but I think I finally got my slideshow and my playlist uploaded and working. The older you get the longer it takes to learn all this high tech stuff. I've decided that this must be for the younger generation but I am determined and I won't give up on it.

Thank you friends

Thank you Susie and Amy for being my first two guys are great!
BTW, I love your blogs.

Fiskars in the Boro

I wanted to share a few pictures from our "Fiskars in the Boro" event that Sassy Scrapper put on last weekend at the Hampton Inn. There were about 50 ladies there and we had a blast. I taught a class on this cute little chipboard book. I must admit I was a nervous wreck trying to come up with an idea to do on this bare book, but when it was all done I loved it and enjoyed teaching the class.

I never thought I would be "blogging" at my age BUT... since I love scrapbooking, both paper and digital, this seems to go right along. Please bear with me as this is a new experience for me and I'm sure there will be many blunders along the way. I will try to post something every day or so and hope you follow along my "blogging journey" with me.

You may be wondering where my title of Addicted Sisters comes from. My sister and I always scrapbooked together and we actually sold some premade pages on e-bay...that was our name.
She no longer scraps but I am consumed with it. I love paper, digital and hybrid. I am lucky enough to work at my local scrapbook store, Sassy Scrapper, and just love it there. I work with some very talented girls and have met many other talented and creative girls at the store.

The things I love in life are my family, scrapbooking, camping and working in my yard. These are the things that make my life complete and I enjoy them.

Life is Good!!!!
