Finally returning to blogging.....

I have missed blogging, but have kept up with everyone's
blog. I have been short on time the last 3 months and
also had my computer break down and we went without
for about 1 month. I was able to squeeze in some
creative time.

I attended my friend Kim's Christmas in July. It was a
great day filled with creating, eating, visiting with friends
and being spoiled by Kim. Don't you love my cupcake plate...
Kim made it from a candle holder and a vintage plate!
I actually met Kim at Silver Bella last year and so
glad that I did! She hosts monthly creative get togethers
at her beautiful home and she only lives 30 minutes from
me. We plan to room together at Silver Bella this year.

This pretty handmade flower was adorning a box of supplies and goodies.

A beautiful project of Kim's, the flower fairy ball. I will
show mine later. It was fun to make!

Kim is showing us her version of Pam Garrison's Lineage
of Love. We all made our own version.

Now, some highlights of what has kept me busy. We did
manage a family vacation to my parents in Florida.

Macy's graduation was a great day and the ceremony
was lovely! She won Female Athlete of the Year.

Here's the happy graduate with her Grams and Granddaddy,
my parents.

This is the night before at her graduation party. Five other
girls and Macy had the party together. We rented a historical
home and it was really beautiful!

All 6 girls and their moms. This was a huge undertaking, but
well worth it! So many friends, teachers and family members
attended. We even had a Java bar, serving coffee and smoothies.

This photo was earlier in the day at the Baccalaureate service.

I did manage to scrapbook several pages for her senior
album. This is her friend Katerine and they are
attending college together.

A solo page of Macy and yes I did sneak in some vintage
wallpaper and some seam binding!

Other events that kept me busy and away from blogging include,
my son's 8th grade celebration.

I was able to meet up with Suzanne Duda at the Nashville Flea
Market. She and her daughter came up for the day and it was
great to see them!

Of course, track kept us very busy and we all enjoyed Macy's
last high school season. Kyle was in a back brace due to a
fracture and unable to play baseball this year.

The Prom was another busy event.

Macy and her date Connor. They had a wonderful time.
Soooo as you can see, I have been very busy. I am
hoping that things will slow down and I can return
to blogging and more creating.
