Day 31 – A Friend From Far Away

January 31, 2010

My daughter has a friend that she went to high school with in Hong Kong.  She recently got in touch with me and sent a picture of herself and my daughter.  I’ve been playing today with that picture.  I would like to put words around this….but not sure exactly what to say.  So this is a work in progress.  I cleaned up the original photo….removed the background image and put the girls on what looks like a postage stamp.  My daughter is the one on the left.


Day 30 – A Gift for my Sister

January 30, 2010

My sister’s birthday is next week….and she loves blue and green.  I found some really pretty beads today at Michaels and I made her a necklace, bracelet and earrings.  I hope she likes them!




Day – 29 Spring is Almost Here!

January 29, 2010

Every year I battle the presence of crabgrass in my lawn.  I was out walking the yard today putting down granules of crabgrass preventative when I walked around the side of the house that I rarely walk in and saw that one of my bushes was in full bloom.  What a welcome surprise and nice display that spring is almost here!!  We’ve had great daytime weather and it was just so nice to see these pretty flowers after the 2 weeks of rain off and on every day we had recently.

Day 28 – Lunch with friends

January 28, 2010

Today I made lunch for ‘mom’ and ‘dad’….we had spaghetti, meatballs, brocoli, salad and the best tiramasu ever!   We learned a new game called Mexican Dominoes.  Mom and dad taught us how to play.  It was a fun afternoon…..something we don’t do very often…it was a nice change to entertain and play games.  I was the big winner….guess I had beginners luck!

Day 27 – Visit to the Dentist

January 27, 2010

Yesterday I went to the dentist to have my teeth cleaned……oh joy!  I always get gassed…..because it’s so good!!!!   And it takes the pain of getting my teeth scraped!  I actually look forward to my bi-annual visits to the dentist. 

Day 26 – Birthday Boy

January 26, 2010

My little grandson celebrated his 2nd birthday and I made this LO of the celebration.  I used a template that was provided in my DYL class….and the design concept is repetition and visual triangles.

Day 25 – DYL(Repetition and Visual Triangles)

January 25, 2010

My daughter is forever behind the camera….it was nice to see her in front of the camera!  I did this 2 pg LO for my Design Your Life class.  This weeks lesson was REPETITION.  The white on the left side of the page I carried over to the right side of the page…creating a visual triangle; another thing we learned this week.  The flower embellishments are also repeated and create a visual triangle.
