I went over to Jeri's house last night and worked on these 'lil fellas. They're made from Stampin' Up! punches and a set of Twizzlers. I'm going to do another craft show, on the 24th, and I'm going to make some of these up. Aren't they the cutest?!
I'm having a Kids Crop on Saturday . . . they're making a Build-A-Bear card, a scrapbook, and a little 3D scalloped bag. A few of the Moms have mentioned how they're going to ask for a electronic die cutting machine (did I stay politically correct there?) for Christmas . . . but they're apprehensive to let their kids touch it. Well . . . I'm not! What can they do to it . . . we'll be right there? This is the scalloped bag their going to make . . . along with some stamping (of course). They'll get to fill it with Starburst candy too . . . what kiddo wouldn't like that?! :o) I hope all the kids have a good time.
Today is bitter sweet, since it would have been our Mom's 70th birthday. This is one of my favorite pictures of "GiGi". She was holding Nathan, when he was about a month old (in 2003). Mom named herself "GiGi" when Jackson (Theresa's oldest) was little, which stood for "Goofy Grandma", and the name just stuck. Patrick, our youngest is named after her (as her name was Mary Patricia). She passed away about one month before Patrick was born (in 2004). She had a contagious laugh and was an absolute wonderful Mom, wife, friend, and very proud of all her grandsons! We so miss our 'lil ray of sunshine, but know that she touches us somehow and someway everyday.
Thanks for stopping by my craft room and be sure to tell someone you love them!
