2 custom nautical pieces for décor-tomorrow
1 guest book-just need to put the pages in the book
1 advise book-nope
2 outdoor nautical style wooden signs
Personal - 2 necklaces

The big catch is that my daughter has an eye for art that is very similar to mine. So as you read the above list think T!m Holtz. They are being inked, distressed, spritzed, crackled, aged, painted, stained, you name it! Really, it is a blessing that my husband, my friends and I can do this for Tabitha and David. Saying this tells you why I’m not around Debby’s Dare and other of my on-line haunts very much. I can’t wait to show you all the things that were made to go with this Platinum Wedding. Tabitha and David are unique and their wedding is being created with their own unique style.

My son has proudly been part of the Air Force ROTC throughout High School. This is the second half of his Junior year and it’s like a wonderful door has opened for great high school memories and for a career that he would love. Jacob was greatly encouraged (and said a few oo,ahs) when he commanded the armed drill team to third place against schools from the midlands. Jacob has not seen anyone win a trophy since he’s been in the ROTC. The Colonel has assigned Jacob to command the armed drill team at the next competition at Shaw Air Force Base in a few weeks.

I was very excited about his third place this past weekend you know I had to create a layout just for him.

Dad and I are proud of you Jacob.
I put off the Tim Holtz Sizzix Die giveaway until unKit (great friends) completed their giveaway. I want to post some of my projects I did using the die-cuts. So I’m looking at tomorrow or Thursday as the beginning of the “Dare.”

Logitech as agreed to replace my web cam! I’m sending back the defective one today and they I should have another one in about 10 days. I have projects and demos backed up. I did purchase another web cam, but now I know why I purchased the one I did. The other one allows me to really move the cam around for the demos…this one only looks at you. LOL. I do have a demo nearly finished that I took photos as I went along. All this week.

Gratitude List
