Sewing on worn cardboard equals heart emoji eyes!
These were some of my favorite confetti birthday cards I made. More to come...
Connections. Crossings. Transitions. . When I attended my grandpa's funeral I chickened out to stand up and give words of what he meant to me. Today, I decided to be bold and share what my childhood second mom meant to me at her funeral reception. I might have cried a little thru it, but I did it. If you would have known her you would have stood too. She was that type of person.
I was hiking up at Mt. St. Helens on February 6, 2019 having the most wonderful day. When I got back into town my dad called to let me know this wonderful woman, Karen Nelson, who raised me as one of her own had passed. She had a such a huge impact on my life. God blessed me to have her shower her love on me. It made all the difference in my childhood. RIP Karen. You were a light unto me. ❤ . Memorial mass at St. Gabriel's in Port Orchard 2-19-19.

Back in the day we @adora.concepcion, @_tombraider and @juni_5 use to ride the Bremerton ferry for craft day at DG's. It's been 6 years since DG passed in February 2013. Miss those days. . I love this photo of the girls. Adora just looks liked she's wrapped up in love. They might get mad at me for saying this, but they are both close to 60 now and look even better than they do in this photo. . Life is really so short. Honor your loved ones who have moved on and live a life you have imagined.
This is the cropped version of the waterfall pic I took. Uncropped version is on my hiking account. I enjoy seeing the change.
It makes my heart melt when I catch and hear Skylar being such a caring big brother to Seth. He's a lucky kid!
This kid. He got his learner's permit. 15 years just flew by.
Stopped by Trader Joe's for my favorite snacks and came away with these two new items. I love how they are always bringing in new product, but hate when they discontinue a product that I love. . So I love their new crispy crunchy mochi rice nuggets. If you like bagel crisps it's similar, but tastier in my opinion. The fruit & nuts apricot -almond was so so. I didn't read the package well enough to see that it states unsweetened. They were a little too sour for me. . Have you ever gotten something at Trader Joe's that you liked or disliked?
I love embossing my background paper and adding a little depth with a chalk ink stamp pad. Happy Valentine's Day!
One of my most favorite techniques I learned using aluminum foil tape and alcohol inks. Happy Valentine's Day!
The tree is such a wonderful thing.
