A few projects

The last week has been busy but I'm not sure what with... it feels like we always have something...You know if I'm off I have a big list of things I want to do or work on, I didn't get much checked off but it's a start...

  • I did make time to work on a baby gift (copied my sweet neighbor's idea)  for a friends shower this weekend....
  • I'm also smocked a sweet baby gown to go with it...

  • I started sanding and painting my dining furniture...
  • yesterday I had a crafty day with the work girl friends and we made our new calenders for the year...

Kim had her house all fixed up for us, it was like being at the scrapbook store... there were tables with all the fancy equipment laying out, even trash cans by our chairs... It was great!

I brought lunch but the hit was the dessert...


Peach Blueberry pie in mason jars.

Here is the finished calendar for the next school year...


and this isn't really much of an accomplishment but it sure makes me happy (copied from Pintrest)
